    hello everyone. New here in Pan-O. I've played Infinity off and on for a couple years, and my main army is Tohaa (yay). However, I've decided to branch out into a second army and chose Pan-O because I liked the models, and nobody else here plays them. I grabbed some things on the cheap and I seem to have a decent start at Neoterran Capitaline Sectoral army. Here's what I have

    2x Squalos
    5x fusiliers (all combirifles)
    1x Hexas (MULTI Sniper)
    3x Bolt (Combi Rifle + Light Shotgun)
    1x Swiss Guard (Missile Launcher)
    1x Hexa (Spitfire)
    1x Aquila (MULTI Rifle)

    So really the post is twofold. What should I look for to round up this army to make a decent 300pt list? Is there anything decent I can do with what I have now?

    And finally, what is THIS model? (the derp jumper on the right)

    For a startoff, what should you get?

    Remotes.

    Get all the remotes (and multiples of Fugazi and Pathfinders).

    You will also want to pick up a couple of options which you can run as CSUs (either actual CSUs or something from another faction you can proxy with).

    You probably also want to pick up the Fusilier SWC pack and the Bolt SWC pack, for options to build broader ranges of fireteams for both.

    The support pack, for the Trauma Doc, Machinist and their palbots is pretty important.

    Then the basic support options, WarCor, Tech-Bee and the Auxilia are a classic element of NCA (not what they once were, but still useful).

    As for something to play?

    Maybe something like this?

    The model on the left is a fusilier. The model on the right is an old Swiss Guard with HMG.

    I’ll second everything @AdmiralJCJF says above. I’d also add, if you’re going for NCA, a Garuda and a model to use as a deva. The Asura hacker is a good option if you don’t want to buy a bunch of ALEPH models.

    The black friar brings some interesting toolkit for NCA as well.

    Finally, while the Locust is lacking a token state and suffers for it, it is your best option for Looting and Sabotage. I actually really like the model as well.

    In any case, I’d pick up everything in the post above before you go for any of the models in this post.

    First priority:
    Remotes
    Fusiliers SWC box
    Support Pack

    Second priority:
    PanO's half of Beyond Icestorm (or rather 2/3 of that half, Swiss HMG and Bolt Paramedic
    Devas and Garudas
    Bolt SWC box

    Afterwards - depends on your tastes. But the above should cover most needs.

    I would hold off on the Support Pack as there is supposed to be a resculpt coming out soon with N4 coming out this year.
    @Deathadder84 I would grab the Bolts box first because March is the last month they will be in production. The same goes for the PanO half of Beyond Icestorm and the Locust model. They will all be gone when Apiril comes. I would buy those three as soon as you can on ebay or somewhere the price is good. ShaeKonnit has a Split-Box page on the forums where you can just buy the PanO side of Beyond Icestorm by itself.
    After that you can pick up the Fusiliers and the PanO remotes. They won't be going anywhere.

    I also second @yoink101's idea of grabing the newer Asura Model to test out the Deva loadouts or get the Team Rocket Jessie Deva model form the Dakini box. ShaeKonnit also has the Deva from Operation Coldfront if you wanted a male Deva to use. You can have 2 Devas in a single NCA list. So having two models or three (2 Combi-Rifles, 1 Spitfire) would be a good idea if you liked the unit.

    @Deathadder84 Which area of the world do you live in? North America, Europe? Do you have any good store options to choose from?

    As far as what you actually put in your lists, I think a Fusilier + CSU link, a Swiss Guard HMG, 3 Fugazi, a doc w/ palbot, Hexa killer hacker and 2 Auxilia are staples for virtually every NCA list I've ever made.

    thanks for all the help guys! Infinity has a great community. Part of why I love it so much.

    @Golem2God Im in Northern California. We've got a decent shop here (sort of commandeered half of the MTG shop and made it our own lol).

    Can order what I need from him. Will probably try to get some of it used since I'm pretty poor lol

    Game Nerdz is a good online store for Infinity shopping. Orders under 75$ cost 5$ to ship while above 75$ is free. Ebay should be your go-to place especially if you are on a budget. You'd be pleasantly surprised with what you can find on there.
