    I’m considering getting the spiral core starter.

    1. How used are the pieces in it?

    2. what would be good next purchases? (I suspect the upcoming helix)

    3. what are the weaknesses of spiral core?

    Welcome to Spiral Corps!
    Regarding your first question: all the minis are used, the starter is a great buy.
    Next good purchase I recommend Rasail Boarding Team (two Chaksas), Neema Saatar and the Kumotail box (two more Chaksas).
    The weakness I think would be lack of cheap cheerleaders (in the point range 5-6 like Caledonian Volunteers or Kuang Shis) and lack of a good platform for HMG.

    Several players were complaining having difficulities assembling that mini.
    But indeed the profile is very useful and if You want to play WYSIWYG yup, You gotta buy that figure.

    I bought into the faction because of that model alone.

    1) I play almost everything in the starter except the Kiel-San and Spitfire Reex regularly.

    2) Taagma sniper, Chaksa Auxiliars, Kauuri Sentinels, and Helot Militia are good next steps.

    3) The biggest weakness is the inflexible/not completely self-sufficient triads compared to vanilla Tohaa. For example, a vanilla Triad can have a shooter, specialist, cornerguard, template, and eclipse smoker because one piece does three of those jobs. In Spiral, one piece is both the shooter/cornerguard and specialist (Draal depending on the profile) and relies on a one-off mechanic that can't be reloaded (Stratuscloud), and the triad options for the rest of the things triads should do are not excellent.

    Secondary weakness because of this is never having enough command tokens.

    Spiral is a fantastic faction though, just be aware that you're relying on Kriigel triads, Draal triads, and Clipsos to do almost all of the working.

    Yes, but it has trick, because the metal is so maleable, in other words, once Glued, force the position without fear to break it

    Good miniature, better profile, recomended for sure

    The other things you should do it is split a Healots box with a friend, you will ply that lizards, chaksas always usefull, kaeltar too, etc etc
