If you go through all of the TAGs in infinity only 5 do not have Courage or Religious. Of those five, 4 are Nomad TAGs and the last is the Gorgos (a discontinued TAG in a faction so far on the back burner it's starter box was discontinued along with half the line). This seems odd to me. I personally think it is because Nomads were used as a baseline during Beta testing, after finishing the nomads they came up with the idea that maybe walking tanks shouldn't flee from combi rifle fire ~35% of the time and put that in the other factions, and then due to deadlines/a global pandemic/rabid moose attacks in the office(surprisingly common in Spain) they just did not get back around to the Nomad TAGs to bring them in line with the new normal. But why do I think they made a concerted effort to make TAGs courageous or at least religious? Well, because they did. TAGs such as the Guijia and Maghariba that did not have it in N3 gained it in this edition. Heck the Maghariba was even an example of failing a courage test in the N3 rule book. Additionally with the un-nesting of rules they made sure EVERY remote presence TAG had courage or religious. Basically for a pair of rules that were not universal before, they made sure it was on EVERYTHING except the TAGs that we know were finished first. So I propose giving the Nomad TAGs Courage or Religious. Likely give the Iguana and the Gecko Courage, the Lizard Religious or Courage, and the Salamandra Courage. The Salamandra could alternatively have religious but we already know the Black Hand funds the Anaconda Squadron and those have courage so I am leaning that way. I have made this argument before and heard feedback so I am going to rattle off a few answers to frequently used arguments. 1. Nomad are not meant to have courage because the nomads aren't a trained army. A: Yes, the nomads are. Every ship has units that have courage, any of the cats, the HI, and several others of Corregidor, Bakkunin though it uses more irregular troops also have the morlocks and Task Masters which answer to Jurisdictional Command and have courage, and Tunguska has the Grenzers, Zondnautica, and Kriza who also answer to jurisdictional command. Nomads know how to train for courage and they have thoroughly trained elements in their forces. Furthermore Courage easily represents keeping a cool head under pressure, which can come from training or up bringing. Where do the nomads live? The single most dangerous environment known to man, space. We know in fluff that living in space is dangerous. Think more The Expanse rather than Star Trek. Radiation leaks, explosive decompression, and normal explosions are a fact of life for nomads. They have to keep calm in the face of difficult and lethal problems. If anything Nomads should have MORE rather than less courage than other factions, as death was always a broken radiation shield, faulty valve, or botched repair job away. 2. Okay but Nomad TAGs specifically do not receive that training. A: So the Gecko, the TAG designed for boarding actions does not get trained to be steely in the face of return fire. the TAG meant to break into the airlock and take the hits because there is nothing with heavier armor than them in that theater is going to react by taking cover? The Zero-G Gecko does not get the same training that the Zero-G HI with half it's armor does? And what about the Szala? The black hand spends more money and time training the Anaconda Squadron than it does it's own TAGs? The Lizard Squadron, which is occasionally described as a cult and operates under Jurisdictional command and weilds one of the deadlier armaments of Praxis is not courageous or religious? 3. Okay Karush, but you already made this post? A: I... okay good point, but there I had four other points I was arguing and people kept getting off topic or inventing counter arguments to things I never argued (i.e. Avatar, Visual Mods, etc.) So I thought I'd make a more focused post. Bring the discussion to a single point rather than a compendium on why Nomad TAGs play like N3 TAGs. So yeah.. Discuss?
