    And how do you differentiate that FTO and (360) behaves differently ? We already asked what FTO meant, and the answer was that it is only there to help specifying which loadout has to be used. Which is the same technique as calling for a specific model haris, means you must take the haris loadout. If you don't call for the haris you are still allowed to use it. So if the rule calls for FTO, you must use FTO, if the rule call for nothing in particular, you can take any loadouts.

    If you want the answer to be : FTO means it is a completely different troop unit, which can not be taken in a fireteam unless specifically called for; then maybe you can re-open the thread where the question was asked and answered.

    it has nothing to do with words outside (X). There is a bunch of securitate with words outside brackets and they still all count as same models. I agree that skill/equipment are found inside brackets, but words outside brackets doesn't change the model.

    Yeah, I see what you mean.

    I wasn't ever arguing that it was intuitive but I'm 90% it was what was intended.

    FTO = Fire Team Option

    so its the profile valid for fireteam composition, except where its write different (Stempler FTO + Hollow, Stempler (normal beacuse hasn't super jump) with Raoul and Perseus

    I lost this mission just yesterday because of what you point out as a big mistake: leaving Szally exposed. I had that long fireline covered by Mary+Interventor+repeater in the path the Magariba had to cross to get that fireline and secure the zone, but sometimes dice don't go as expected. It wouldn't had happen if Szally were in total cover. It was too risky, I overestimate my chances.

    Great battle report, BTW. I could've used some more pictures, but your style is great. Keep'em coming.

    PS: Spektrs MSR deployed hidden close to the sides of the board are a GREAT way to get unexpected LoF to enemy models in their DZ. I'm not sure if it's included in the first post, but it should, I think.

    Wisekensai snapped the pics. We should have taken more pictures, but the three of us we're just hanging out and playing. I knew I was going to write a report, but I just didn't snap pics, I'll try to be better.

    Agree on the spektr MSR. Basically MSRs live and die by their opponents range mods, so you want to keep your MSR as far away as possible, generally that means as close to any board edge as possible with long fire lanes.

    I'll even deploy outside partial cover if I can get a lot more distance. The swing moving and enemy gun from +3 to -3 is bigger that the swing you get by soley being in cover.
