    EDIT: First of all, welcome to the forums!

    Speaking more generally I’m unsure as to why this is an onyx list rather than a vanilla one.
    The main point of playing sectorials is link-teams, and I appreciate you trying something different, I just don’t see the point.

    The core of the list looks good, but I would consider going for a xeodron Haris with the Samaritan, dumping the suryats.
    Secondly the rodoks don’t make a lot of sense either, If you’re linking them you should max out the link. Either way, I would consider using something else, especially for specialist slots since 4-2 movement hurts.

    These are just random pre-coffee-thoughts. I might have missed out on something.

    Good luck!

    Thanks for your thoughts. I tried using the xeodron Harris and its to many points. The suryat are a duo link and I would link the umbra and rodoks. They can move quite well if you are able to use super jump to good effect. I diddnt max out the link because I find it difficult to maneuver 5 models sometimes.I see you points and will consider some changes today.

    Hi and welcome

    I like your ideas, It's defenitely a good start! I agree concerning the 4th rodok that will allow your link to have +3 ballistic skill. I wouldn't use the xeodron because it's extremly expensive and may pay off in some very spefic missions. Instead I would include a Rodok Boarding shotgun and go for the Nexus Hacker as a Lieutenant. You can buff your Q-Drone then with assisted fire making it so much more useful! for the changes I would drop the Suryats. With the points you gain, you may upgrade your makreep to an overdrone... This will fit very well with the doctor worm you chose.

    Good fun!

    PS: I liked this video! it helped me a lot:

    Well, welcome to the Forums, but shame on you for picking the edgy tryhard side of Combined :P

    whether the Rodok link should be 3 or 5 monkey really depends on what you want to do with them. 3 monkey Rodok team with the missile launcher on ARO duty is scary enough if you want the points somewhere else. However, I do agree that keeping it at 4 is odd, you should either go for 3 or 5 depending on what you want to do.

    I am also not a fan of Maakreps in Onyx as they always feel underwhelming, but that's my opinion. For that pricetag I'd spring for a Noctifer and try to slap a HRL on one of the suryats.

    However, a list is all about the mission, so this might work well in some situations, and poorly on others. You have to always build towards your objectives.

    Well it could be a plan to put the ML Rodok in ARO duty and not expect him to survive. Then on your turn, you still have 3 standing dudes.

    About the Xeodrons haris, now with quite a few missions that need a DataTracker (that should either survive, or kill stuff), I think they are a good option in OCF. Worth considering, at least.

    I've always liked playing the Haris. They haven't always done what I expect them to do, but the games are always fun.

    Thanks for all the input. I normally don't use the makrep for the same reason I thought she is underwhelming, but I'm thinking of giving her another chance. I see the point of a three man monkey team. The reason I was going for four is it gives SSL2 and that adds durability for the smoke msv combo that alot of the meta uses. I do like the idea of trading maakrep for noctifer and upgrade a suryat

    I like to think about the 2 Xeodrons+Samaritan as 3 pieces that can SOMETIMES use haris, if you have the opportunity, go for Haris, if not, use them separately.

    Ok I made some changes, I like the idea of buffing the q-drone. So I added Nexus hacker, and then I switched the suryat and maakrep and one suryat for some shasvasti. I think it feels like what onyx should be. A small strike force that has a little of the best CA has.infinitythegame.net/infinityarmy/img/_logosweb/logo_604.png[/img] Onyx Contact Force

    Despite my perhaps a bit harsh tone at first(I was a bit too tired to post, hope that you didn’t get offended) I really think your list has evolved!
    You mentioned before that you wanted a link, and I can see that you have a rodok with ML. So I had to check, and a link of unidrons(1 ML, 1 FO, 2 regular) and a nexus hacker is 91 points. Perhaps something to consider?

    Also, be careful with that Samaritan. He's only 1 wound so dies to shock pretty easily. You need to have some way to advance him up the board into CC without too much danger so that he can eat someone for the extra wounds (and subsequent shock immunity).
