    Hmmm pretty underwhelming.

    Worse cc than a locust, no infiltratration no specialist.
    Viral mines are cool but 2 SMGs is a bit meh if they arent on something that leverages their cheap cost.

    I guess we see what shasvastii does as a rule..... 39442978_1812587682191660_8043849102544338944_n.jpg 39453338_1812587588858336_832399631588524032_n.jpg

    I dont exactly like fluff consequences ;P

    Well regarding the gameplay: bit of a meh ? Bit expensive as for "cheap hard hitting unit".

    But aftermentioned mines might be usefull againdt Vedic. Having camo mines is nice in general... (something NCA did not have previously).

    Viraaaaal. How about you make two of those rolls for me. BTS, too.

    But yeah. She seems too expensive. Still, nice. Don't underestimate B4 that those double SMGs give her.

    I dont think 24 pts really does it for getting 3 mines down.

    If she had minelayer then maybe but without it :(

    I wouldnt worry about the fluff much either. Shes a smuggler so it sounds fairly nuetral and makes sense shed had contacts in the largest power in the sphere

    I like the look of her, she seems to fill a counter-skirmisher role, like Dart. B4 for 0 swc is nothing to shake a stick at either.

    I dont think fd1, no marker state and no msv lets her do that effectively.

    Not sure what id say her role is, i think that probably depends more on the shasvastii rules than anything

    Locust doesn't have MA 2. That alone makes it far better than Locust in CC, While she isn't a god of CC she is above average.
    Forward Deployment Lvl 1 backed with viral mines and a decent close range firefight ability at those points seems interesting to me. And what I think is the new toy that brings to NeoTerra: Scavenger. That skill is just for the fun but sometimes can be helpful.

    So viral mines.....viral CC ok starting to see more of a role....

    There also that reason to spend orders on her @Nemo No Name so those b4 ap/shock guns will be kicking in....

    She definitely gives NCA some more forward presence. With the Locust and a Peacemaker that becomes a serious roadblock to get around. She also helps with guarding objectives. I definitely see her having a place in NCA.

    Just short of useable CC, no Minelayer, no Specialist... erm thanks I guess?

    Nice to have, but thats about it. Dual SMGs with Mimetism and FW Dep means she is a nice option for a unhackable tertiary gunner. NCA can always use more options.

    im not gonna count on her forward presence, FD 1 doesnt really push her that far up, its more a "I dont need to spend a single order to get out of the DZ" than a "Im an forward skirmishing unit"
    Shes aww fuck me its MA2? LAME so yeah shit CC there goes that

    I guess a few Shas didn't get completely bent out of shape about the Humans dropping a rock on their DNA repository/spawning creche.

    I always saw Shas as being the most likely ally for Humanity out of the Combined Army. I mean, cut a deal to either give Shas the non-Human-habitable planets in a solar system or even just share planets, and you'd have a decent ally of convenience.

    Using a couple of orders to get her forward to the midfield and start droping mines isn't that bad. especially since it can be done as part of a coordinated order. She might not be the best "skirmisher" in the game but she is still gives NCA something new.
