    I'd consider cutting Valkyrie.

    After all, how are you delivering her?

    Yeah, the Chimera could probably do the same thing for cheaper and better.
    I originally wrote this list with Armory in mind, so the need for a Valk link/eclipse thrower is diminished

    Something else to consider in that list: You could swap a Zero to a Peacemaker. That way you already have deployed repeater and The templates are really useful too.

    Or ditch the extra CSU to upgrade the Fugazi so you can have two Zeros and the Peacemaker. ;)
    Oh and the Haris in the second Combat Group might be another way to do it too.

    I apparently am incapable of creating a FC list without Kriza HMG.

    I think I'd prefer something along these lines:

    But we're basically talking variations on the theme at this point.

    It was the opposite for me. Wasn't excited for the first batch but Spiral & Foreign are a different story.
    This comment makes me want to build a Foreign Company and prove this idea wrong. Just the drive anybody needs in a hobby.

    I'll start by saying I tend to play Limited Insertion lists. I've had no problem dealing with 15-18 order lists using 10 order lists. The biggest factor tends to be creating AROs I can use to my advantage. All that being said, I'm excited by the prospects of Foreign Company. Here's two lists I'm looking at using:


    Orc Feuerbach

    KRIZA BORAC Lieutenant HMG / Heavy Pistol, CC Weapon. (2 | 54)
    ORC Feuerbach / Pistol, Knife. (2 | 42)

    LAXMEE Hacker (UPGRADE: Maestro) Submachine Gun + Pitcher, Cybermines, D-Charges / Pistol, Knife. (0.5 | 34)
    SEÑOR MASSACRE Boarding Shotgun, E/M Grenades, Eclipse Grenades / Pistol, AP CCW, E/M CCW. (0 | 26)
    VALKYRIE Heavy Shotgun, Grenades / Heavy Pistol, EXP CC Weapon. (0 | 35)
    BRAWLER (Multispectral Visor L2) MULTI Sniper / Pistol, Knife. (1.5 | 28)
    ZERO (Forward Observer) Combi Rifle, Antipersonnel Mines / Pistol, Knife. (0 | 19)
    CSU (Specialist Operative) Rifle + Light Shotgun, Nanopulser / Pistol, Knife. (0 | 12)

    The list above has several ARO pieces I like. Don't want to fight a fight? Massacre drops eclipse grenades. They drop smoke? MSV sniper. Ideal situation? They try to deal with the ORC Feuerbach. In my active turn, I have the Kriza to be aggressive with (including using his LT order because Hannibal is CoC), I have Massacre to throw eclipse for the fireteam to move up the board (with two specialists in it because Hannibal's CoC), and then I have a zero (hopefully infiltrated) that can pop something I want gone. On top of that, I then had a pair of cheap button pushers. It has responses to impersonation (biometric visor) and camo (MSV2), while also being able to create LoF issues with eclipse. To me, this is a great balance of finesse, flash, and fury to give me an opportunity to win against just about anything and under just about any conditions (I've also got a decent amount of multiterrain).

    This next list replaces the ORC with a Bolt to do the same job and upgrades the CSUs to be a Daktari and an Akal BSG. It has one less button pusher, but gives me a doc with bots to cover a lot of the board and a second attempt at giving my opponent a nasty surprise on their side of the board. As another bonus, now the A-Team is starting up to 20" up the board (from my board edge) vs. 16" with the ORC.

    These lists cover a lot of situations, have multiple strong threats, and solid button pushers. One thing I'm thinking about (as a Tunguska player I'm used to not having MSV2) doing is replacing the Brawler MSV2 with a Croc Man sniper. The reason I'd take the Croc Man over the Brawler is my experience with the Spektr sniper. Having the opportunity to have a sniper shooting while providing the opponent a -12 mod cannot be understated. It is not often my Spektr sniper doesn't make up its points at the very least. The Croc Man sniper seems to be a similar profile with the added benefit of X-Visor.

    I welcome any critiques.
