    So this is the story of me being a good Ariadna friend. I have a friend named Trevor. Trevor runs military orders, and for some strange reason he's absolutely terrified of Ratniks. The mini is just mentioned in spitballing and list building brings a clear sense of dread. This has been present ever since he first faced one in close quarters during an armory mission. Maybe it's the mini itself being intimidating, but he really really hates them. He's quite fond of pain train links, including the hospitaller/magister 5 man and now changed over to the magister/teutonic 5 man. Regardless; because I'm such a good friend and I have a kazak half of a 2nd coldfront, I decided to make a list to capitalize on his fear of Ratniks.

    The idea being a brick of a defensive link that's protecting an order generating Veronin and is relatively difficult to shift once it gets onto an objective. The defensive nature of it is why I took a mk12 over a APHMG as it's almost the same in ARO. The Dog Warrior supports the advance of the ratniks with smoke. In general it has a lot of offensive beef moving up while the camo tokens push button's and continue to clear the way for the Ratniks to go kick in doors and wreck up the place. I tried to keep it a LI list as I tend to really enjoy building and playing LI lists.

    Do you have the points to make one of the Ratnik's a the double Molotok version? It has AP and a very high burst, and a panzerfaust for ARO. It may be worth taking a look at.

    I've yet to try out the double molotok version of the Ratnik in general. I may be biased due to the actual mini's loadout. I could try switching out the dog warrior for just an Irmandinho and go with double molotoks.

    I've still yet to try out this list. My current games may have been with some recently purchased IA.

    Actually I played a very simmilar list in an ITS with a good general performace.
    Improve one Ratnik to Molotok and DUO it with HRL. Use HRL in ARO and long ranges, use Molotok to slowly aproach killing as much as you can with that burst 5. When close enough devastate with the heavy shotgun.

    And remeber, they have dogged. If they are going to fall unconscious shout "¡FOR THE MOTHERLAND, ENEMY SHALL NOT PASS! and launch it into a glorius dead within fire and enemy corpses.

    Some people just want to watch the world burn...

    That is pretty close to a tournament TAK list that I'd run. If I join a more competitive/mean spirited league I'm flooding the board with camo.
