    I have got an upcoming tournament next month. Right now I am a little bit lost and don't know which lists to play.

    The missions will be:

    1: Supremacy
    2: Tic Tac Toe (ITS 10)
    3: Acquisition

    This list I wanted to use for 1 & 2

    Solid Fire Team with Kerr-Nau, Q Drone and Noctifier for fun. Ko-Dali is a nice addition and comes in pretty handy.

    This I was thinking to field in Acquisition:

    Overdron aß Data Tracker and Malignos as Liason Officer.

    You're first list is pretty good, I wouldn't really rate that second list for acquisition, you're wanting a model to get to the centre of the board and hold a positionagainst warbands and CQB specialists so i's say an overdron datatracker is a poor choice, especially without a suppression fire option.

    Personally I'd be more tempted to run this:
    Accquisition
    ──────────────────────────────────────────────────

    MALIGNOS (Forward Observer) Combi Rifle, Antipersonnel Mines / Pistol, Knife. (0 | 36)
    R-DRONE Flash Pulse, Sniffer / Electric Pulse. (0 | 8)
    ÍMETRON . (0 | 4)
    ÍMETRON . (0 | 4)

    6 SWC | 300 Points

    Open in Infinity Army

    A Sphinx is a good central defender that can hold it's own against enemies within 16" the Rodok team is super killy and good at holding up field, better able to take cover, has visual mods, basically all of them have CQB equipment and since we've had to sub out Dr Boobworm for a malignos they can bring their own paramedic which with morat phys isn't as much of a kiss of death.

    Unfortuntly Onyx are pretty stuffed by Liason officers, having to pay 3x+ the going rate for a line trooper FO, you could always go for a list which works more around a malignos FO such as going down the drones and guided attacks route, or just ignore that last objective point completely. That all said a Malignos FO works well with the above list which is up for some mid field aggression.

    First of all, thank you for the reply!

    I see my error in the Acquisition list. Your list makes a lot of sense and I dig the Sphinx. Will try the list in a test run. As Data Tracker I have to use the Umbra, right?

    Edit: Is a Liason Officer really necessary, as you can either score with him or the Data Tracker?

    if im not wrong, you can choose the sphinx as datatracker, but it cant become a camo marker

    Well, that is the point. I would like to have it in marker state, especially without an Engineer in my list.
