So, one of the things about N4 I haven’t seen discussed here yet is the effect of a Gizmokit on a linked engineer in Dahshat. It’s possible to do with most PanO sectorials, IA, WB, Bakunin, QK, Morats, OSS, Steel Phalanx (no core bonus though), Starmada, White Company, and most of NA2 armies thanks to either Kaplans or Brawlers. Burst 2 Gizmokit plus the Core BS bonus gives you decent odds to land both kit shots, and if either PH roll succeeds you can give the target back 1 STR. It’s not really the standard Dahshat archetype, but I’m toying with lists built around the Ghulam LT (+1 Command Token) with two or more Ghulams, plus Brawler MSV2 sniper and Brawler Engineer, along with 2-3 wild cards. The idea is to enable a Ghulam core linked NCO grenade launcher for either reliable smoke or spec fire, then break the link and reform it into a defensive/support core with the Brawlers and wild cards (probably Gromoz, an ABH, and maybe Sforza FTO for a linkable viral weapon). That leaves the Ghulam LT free to hide, and the NCO can use the LT order each turn to spec fire or lob smoke. As a backup plan, the Brawlers and one wildcard (probably Sforza) can form a haris, and the Ghulams and remaining wildcards can stay as a partial or full core link. That can all be accomplished with 7-8 models in one group, leaving a second group of 7-8 models available for a Maghariba Guard and cheerleaders. I was able to fit a Rafik FTO buddy for Maggie, two Fanous, a Dozer, baggage Mul, and Katyusha Mul into that group to provide a duo link, 7 regular orders, and Maggie’s TacAware order. Gromoz provides a core-linked pitcher and hacker with the choice of two baggage bots to reload pitchers as needed, plus two Fanous and a Rafik carrying repeaters to provide vectors for Spotlight. The REMs also provide flash pulse coverage, and the Rafik FTO can use Sensor to reveal camo, and Forward Observe to target things for bombardment by the core, Maggie, or the Katyusha. Yeah, the midfield isn’t great, but 17 orders, Maggie, options to inflict Targeted, guided rockets, grenade/smoke launcher, MSV2 MSR, a doctor +3, two engineers including one in a core or haris...not too bad, really. Edit: Added the Army list below. Note that you can downgrade (?) Maggie to the Minelayer profile and put the extra points into giving the Dozer a servant bot, or use them to replace the unarmed Traktor Mul with a third Fanous, or swap out a Fanous for a second ABH. ────────────────────────────────────────────────── GROUP 1 8 BRAWLER (Multispectral Visor L2) MULTI Sniper Rifle ( ) / Pistol, CC Weapon.

(0 | 5) 6 SWC | 299 Points Open in Infinity Army Depending on how you start the game, Sforza could be masked as either a generic Ghulam as a LT decoy, or as an ABH if your plan is to begin with the Brawler core up. My preference is to start with him in the Ghulam core, both to mess with alpha-strike attempts at decapitation, and to use the core bonuses to set up smoke or spec fire using the NCO grenade launcher before breaking the Ghulam core and migrating my three wildcards over to a new Brawler core. My plan for dealing with a castled Kamau or Haidao would be to try to either land a repeater and put it in Targeted (or ISO/IMM if possible), then dice it down with Maggie, or just spec fire it with the linked grenade launcher and/or the TAG grenade launcher in my other group, which is why I took the higher-cost Maghariba instead of the mine dispenser profile.
