    That's not strictly true. While Smoke doesn't give you -6 agaisnt Fireteams, it does help you pick the fight with the weakest member instead of whoever is on the lookout.

    The Marut can definitely win a firefight against anyone, but stacking the odds in your favor is not a waste of orders, as your opponent will be less likely to avoid damage. It also depends on who is the source of the smoke. A chain myrmidon won’t accomplish much beyond chugging smoke. While an officer with CoC can accomplish specialist tasks while moving into position and showering the Marut with smoke.

    How about, two Maruts. Will probably end up investing in the old model just in time for a new one to be announced, so if we have two models we might as well run two right?

    Indeed. With the TAG discount, and netrods being veteran, it's quite doable. Now we can field 2 TAGs, one of the best engineer, big hacking cover AND a zayin just in case someone would still think he could get through. I would like to see the opponent's reaction :)

    I strongly disagree. 1 smoke on top of the Marut allows her to:
    1. Cherry pick targets without calling all ARO on the fire lane.
    2. Discover a Camo marker and Fire at a different target (no attack order against a camo with no LoS => the marker gets no ARO).
    3. Improve odds against enemy troops without Sixth Sense or MSV 2+ (MSV1 can fire back with a -3).
    Also, if you manage to cover her with smoke during you opponent's active turn (because a "disposable" 16pts Myrmidon did a special smoke dodge and suceeded to cover both himself and the Marut), the enemy can suffer some trouble due to incoming fire from an ARO piece they can't see, this seems to not have changed from N3 (where I did use such tricks both with smoke and White Noise, even if the WN option is harder to survive... it's like having albedo)

    I tried to make a dual Sphinx list in Shas, not as good as one might thing. Both get to 8 troops (3 netrods, 1 EVO, 1 lamedh, Dart & Parvati with 1-2 Yudbots)

    Yeah, it's not optimal at all, but it may be quite fun. And no one would expect the 2 maruts.

    My regular opponent has been threatening me with double Jotum since N4. Now I know what i'll do to one-up him.

    Hmm, very much just theorybuilding, but this doesn't look absolutely terrible to me. You could swap the Posthumans and the CSU for Parvati, although you do lose two button pushing bodies and an order.

    Why Evo hacker? Danavas have good Wip and upgrade oblivion for anti hacker. This list is for frontline and similar objectiv not for heavy button smash. gr8AIE9wZXJhdGlvbnMgU3Vic2VjdGlvbiBvZiB0aGUgU1NTgSwBAQwBgkkBAgACgkkBAQADglUBAgAEgMABAQAFglUFAgAGg7YBAgAHgk8BAQAIglEBAQAJglEBAQAKglQBAQALglMBAQAMglMBAQA=

    I've been trying to work out how to make the Marut work in N4; I was just dabbling a bit with OSS at the tail end of N3, and with the release of Phalanx I've started back in on working out Aleph lists.

    How do these look for a starting point with N4 Aleph to support a Marut?

    Not bad, but the myrmidons are kind of bland. Needs more heavy weaponry:

    Hmm. Maybe too cautious. Just add Parvati for that sweet sweet Engineer +3.

    Any feedback on these?

    Intended uses: Marut does Marut things. Atalanta as an active second threat vector, or nasty ARO option; park a yudbot next to her if possible to stand her back up if needed. Smoke to permit unfair advantages to Marut and Atalanta, via either Phoenix or Myrmidons. Lists with Scylla EVO allow for Fairy Dust on the Marut, or jump assistance for the Garuda if applicable. White Noise allows Phoenix to counter MSV snipers. Baggage to reload the Danavas pitcher. Lots of repeater bots and at least one regular hacker in the Danavas to apply Targeted. Sophotect or Parvati to keep the small number of troopers from getting smaller.
