    So our LGS just set up a tournament Soldier of fortune optional rule, and I was thinking of taking my IA and using the extra mercs to help balance out the secorals limited options. I'm still looking at starting with this, and working from there.

    I was hoping to use Miranda Ashcroft and an ABH in a duo, but I don't think you can use any NA2 fireteams rules in Soldier of fortune. I've got another thread checking the rules here. What would be everyone preferred Mercs to use in IA. My usual preferred ones are Yuan Yaun, but I usually stick to 10 model lists in IA, but may break my rule for this tournament.

    Take Mc Murrough and swap your haidao for the sniper one.

    Sedral knows.

    Hitting enemy in cover on 16s through smoke? Priceless.

    I wasn't even thinking of hitting anyone through smoke when I started nodding while reading "Take McMurrough". I was simply thinking "Non-hackable makes sense"

    I would have run something like this, HD+ to be able to engage Varuna or Spiral

    But of course the only correct sof package is McMurrough, Yuans, krakot and two warcors

    Yes, I have no idea why CB bothered to add it a breaker combi doesn't really make her more desirable.

    I love her! I use her all of the time in ISS and now Dahshat. She's cheap and great for going to a objective and going into suppression fire. And Breaker is great because it's against BTS and half if it. And now she can tow around a 12 pts ABH with SMG and AKanone. But also I tend to do weird lists with ISS just because. :stuck_out_tongue:

    If you want to stuff a lot of orders in and wreck a lot of face, there is also this. 13 Regular-ish orders (using Tac Awareness and your NCO/Lt2 options), 2 Irregular, 2 Impetuous. And both redundant smoke and White Noise to cover your advances.

    I love McMurrough in Dahshat. Man you have almost too many options with SoF. I think i'd go with Avicennia. Finally a good doc that can keep my guys up and push buttons well.

    You’ll be surprised how easily Avicenna falls when pressured even slightly against an active turn rifle, from a bs 9 yuan yuan...

    Uh, anyone can fall to lucky shots in the active. Avicenna is pretty hard for a doc, and her NWI, WIP15 flash pulse, speed for cautious moves, etc. all make her generally worth the investment if you have expensive infantry worth healing.

    If SoF is allowed, you can't go wrong with McM and maybe Saito. The smoke coverage makes your Core safer while moving and the Haidao MSR a (bigger)beast, and those two are CC destroyers that balance a lot of the sectorials weak points.

    If what you're after are smoke for your Haidao, then getting a few Yuan Yuan to use as maligned Shaolin won't be too much of an extra investment (remember you don't need to AD them, this is not Inferior Infiltration). At PH 14 and decent shot at getting something good from bounty (+4 ARM, X-Visor, and Panzerfaust being the three big ones to make them a royal PITA)
