    "Cheerleaders" are kind of in a weird place for me in MO as of right now – If I try to include too many and stretch orders I always end up with ~12 or 13. Which is sub optimal imo. Either that or I have a nice 15 orders and too few pieces that actually do anything. List building for MO is a real challenge, but I'm enjoying it to a certain degree. It can be really frustrating but I think given enough time we can hammer it out. I'm looking at TAGs more and more as almost a go-to unit if I want my list to have more orders, strangely enough.

    Yeah, it's ok. But knights spent SWC too fast, so i need to save from somewhere.

    I feel like you're comparing apples to sour grapes here. :) All joking aside, nobody stops at the LT stage, and 3 fusies isn't as good as other options.

    17 orders, a bit combi rifle spammy, but it has a link team with specialist, 7 orders in the second group, 3 strong ARO pieces, and a Joan you can either use aggresively, or have sit in DZ until 3rd turn.

    So, I've not said yet my opinion about our new/old sectorial army.

    I like many new options, linked FKs are amazing, Hospitallers haris, new Santiago profiles and the mighty Holy Sep. that now has sense. I'm not so happy about the loss of the fusiliers and the impossibility of doing the classic 3 magister + 2 Hosp link that was, in my opinion, really strong.
    Anyway, a great restyling, we need it and with so man y options, now it's really hard for me to do a list that satisfies my taste.

    Reading all that I missed in this thread during the holidays was a bit of a chore in itself, yet interesting.

    I tend to agree with the analysis of @eciu @Skoll and @Judge Dredd about the real state of MO, maybe the hate for Teutons is a bit over 9000, yet almost deserved as CB woodenly treats the issue. My opinion, they are plain and simple bad.

    MO got some actual boosts yet at a lavish price tag. Santiagos are a godsend (pun inteded) band-aid, Seraph finally is a go, Montesa is interesting, Hospitaller haris amazing, KotHS a tax yet alluring and generally much more flexibility here and there is very nice.

    What puzzles me are some of the botched approaches to MO restyle chosen by CB. I'm ok with the gone Fusiliers and the Lt limitations. I get it and fluffwise as I disdain the idea of heathens in MO, less more as Lt, plus the theme of Knights Lt is cool. Even a subpar order efficiency that locks almost every list on LI could be understandable.

    Yet I really cannot wrap my head around these two, that are to me blatantly hamfisted: Crusader team nerf and no-TO no-g:sync Spec OS status of pariah. Ok to get rid off Magisters but wreck Joan link is a bit too much. And how on earth the Hacker and MSV L2 Spitfire Spec OS cannot join a OS team is beyond me! I understand the rationale beyond the Crusade Fireteam nerf still I don't like it, but these two Spec OS unlinkability, why? Ok the TO and g:sync ones, it's quite obvious but these two... every frigging sectorial out there got a LI hacker linkable option and MSV L2 LI linkable is quite common these days. To me is even a worst attempt at internal balance and competition than the mess with Teutons.

    ~

    So much for pars destruens, here we go with pars construens as we had to play with what we get, how do you find this one?

    I tried to max out on SWC and points considering ITS and exploiting flexibility link formation, searching some answer to hacking/jamming/E/M still with everything inside knights in shiny armour theme .

    It's not bad list, but again it's "only" 10 orders, getting out of DZ is even harder than previous Hosp+Mag. Also I would love something done about Konstantinos price (Assault Pistol + Combi).

    Better not make mistakes (or eat crits).

    Also: Speculo will have a field day (this list will fold against Avatar+Speculo).

    I will bring them. Just for the sake of making armies more varied.

    Even though missions rather suggest bringing NCA.

    Heck I quote you on every single word, yet to me currently MO drives hard to LI, bar choosing to go full trashy order monkeys that we actually got few of, and anyway we end in th 13/14 bracket.

    Moreover I tried two quite similar LI iterations around Jeanne V1 and V2 and Crusade fireteam- as she's quite frankly the reasons I started MO, La Pucelle d'Orléans > Deus Vult. How they fare in your opinion guys?

    Are there viable Jeanne lists that pass over the LI threshold that you fancy to suggest?

    I like them, but clearly am in the minority. I do agree that they could use some tweaks, like having EXP CCWs on all profiles, but don't think that makes them the worst thing ever.

    Is there any reason to bring a Father Knight? I love the models i just don't see the upside of him in a OS Link over the way cheaper Santiago. In all my list building at some point i drop him for the Santiago.

    Well FK ML can be fun sometimes. Especially if your opponent hadn't brought AP HMG and you are rolling good rolls on ARM :)

    Otherwise FK is hard sell when compared to new Santiagos who are cheaper etc. itd.

    Unless you know you will be fighting Haqq/Tohaa (Virals) and that BTS9 seems much better than BTS3.

    The simple fact that best Teuton Fireteams do not have any single Teuton in it, is a glaring evidence that the fellows at CB did not see it coming. And I hope they won't 'cos I fear that otherwise they will also strip that from MO just to please Bostria enduring love for Yu Jing :laughing:

    Jokes apart, it is quite puzzling to me...
