    I've been playing for about 18 months and this week I had my first instance of all the nomads benefits coming together to solve a problem.

    Facing Ikari with core linked Tanko ML and Brawler MSR overlooking the beacon for Capture and Protect. I took 1st turn and started by revealing a Spektr and moving him up to be in a good position to attack the Tanko. Inside 16 the odds were definitely in my favour but my opponent revealed and engaged with a Ninja KHD! Never fear, Heckler jammer was near enough to reveal and run out a panda, followed by Heckler KHD frying the ninja's brains! A couple more orders on the the specktr and the Tanko was down. This was followed by using White noise to allow my puppets to get into good range and cover to shock the Brawler off the table! Order intensive? Certainly, but it felt great to have all the tools I needed and execute on a plan.

    What experiences have you had of Nomads bringing all the right tools and everything coming together?

    I put once a camo marker on a hight roof (perfect for an intruder sniper) and my haqq foe tried to get him with a fiday. It was a mine.

    Another one:
    Only irregular morlocks in 2nd group. Now the enemy will think that their attack range is limited due to their only 2 orders. Then use command tokens to make some of them regular and increase the attack options.

    More than combos are creative ways of using some tools.

    I regularly end up with a triangle of drop troops to guarantee no shots back. I've killed TAGs this way.

    Had a Hollowman slice on a patch of dirt next to a neurocinetics Yan-Huo to land a repeater so the Zero could surprise Oblivion then follow up with a Carbonite. Which freed up the the safe spot for the HMG Hellcat to land and make an unmitigated mess of my opponent's DZ.

    Clearing close support units with Jaguars, opening the way for a Zero AHD to get off a successful Overlord. There is nothing more wonderfully Nomad than TAGjacking and then going on a killing spree.
