    I like your list. Seems to be a good take all comers list for most missions. How well did you do for the year playing that list?

    Won probably over 90 percent of the ganes I played. Clocked 7 out if the 9 tournies i went to for the year as well.
    That being said therr are obviously specific players in my meta, like spleen, against who that win rate is closer to 50 percent and goes peroids of being less or more.
    I also had a pretty rough showing at the big annual tournie but there were reasons for that i guess.

    But its only a piece of it. Personally im really keen to try out a SG core and Mormaer haris ive mucked around with a few times and if cameronians get redone ill go ham on them. Im just taking a break for the tine being

    Thats the list i used to play. Now I hate the volunteer fireteam so much that i dont use volunteers at all in my lists (well, maybe one or two chains as fillers)

    The idea about making SF enemy forfeit his ARO is crazy at least, lack of stealth does do wonders. Awesome.

    Decent thread and tactica, simply disappointed that the thread isn't called 'The Highland fling'

    Remember stealth is optional. So even Martial arts troops can use this. You just have to declare youbare not using stealth for that order

    How do you deal with NFB pukers like Ryuken, Hac Tao, or even a cutter?

    Smoke CC and DTWs
    Gals give zero fucks.

    Theres also massive burst on most things. B4/5 is easy to get in cha with to hit mods so crit fishing is legit. And if all else fails there is spec fire and good camo FOs

    Yeah, linked BS13 T2 BSG; so catch em out of cover as well and you'd be on 16s at worse, (for TO or ODD), with B3.
    (Want an example: my linked Grey vs Sphinx took 2 orders for the TAG to fall to all of that T2).

    Although I always prefer McMurrough in CC as my TAG/HI killer.

    And rely on the B5 BS16 AP HMG for range TAG killing

    I am looking for a close up picture of the Caledonia volunteer with light shotgun.

    And then a measurement of the full length of said light shotgun. Can anyone help me out?
