    Was helping my buddy list craft ForCo and we had trouble with links. At first the options for character links seem all over the place. Valkyrie and Senior Massacre seem like the perfect pair who want to be across the board in CC while utilizing the only smoke in the faction.

    Here is the crazy idea:
    Foreign Company
    ──────────────────────────────────────────────────

    [​IMG]7
    BOLT (Multispectral Visor L1) MULTI Sniper Rifle / Pistol, Knife. (1.5 | 27)
    BOLT Missile Launcher, Light Shotgun / Pistol, Knife. (1.5 | 26)
    BOLT Spitfire / Pistol, Knife. (1.5 | 23)
    BOLT Combi Rifle + Light Shotgun, Drop Bears / Pistol, Knife. (0 | 22)
    HANNIBAL Lieutenant (Strategic Deployment, Strategos L1) MULTI Marksman Rifle, Nanopulser / Pistol, Knife. (0.5 | 41)
    VALKYRIE Heavy Shotgun, Grenades / Heavy Pistol, EXP CC Weapon. (0 | 35)
    SEÑOR MASSACRE Boarding Shotgun, E/M Grenades, Eclipse Grenades / Pistol, AP CCW, E/M CCW. (0 | 26)

    5 SWC | 200 Points

    Open in Infinity Army

    1. Deployment with Hannibal+Valkyrie+Senior Massacre+Bolt SF+Bolt Combi
    2. Every link member using FD1/2 as the board dictates except Hannibal
    3. As the link pushes forward using Smoke, Hannibal will drop out eventually and form a Haris with ARO Bolts
    4. SF Bolt will drop out in a good position and go SF
    5. Remaining three man core will smoke towards their targets
    6. Lock down zones with Drop Bears and SF with combi Bolt
    7. Valk/SM CC with available orders

    Thoughts?

    I may be wrong, but after dropping Hannibal out of the fireteam, won't your core break? For this special core fireteam Hannibal is mandatory for creation at least.

    The idea described is to deploy in coherency with Annibal, then activate the fireteam to move + smoke/shoot/move leaving Annibal behind while other is the Fireteam leader. Annibal gets out of ZoC, and gets dropped out of the Fireteam. This is legal, like for example the Myrmidon Officer + 3 myrmidons, the lady bites it while other myrmidon is the leader, and the fireteam does not break (but you cannot reform it).

    The problem with this tactic is, simply, that to reinforce the Fireteam you need to make it again with Annibal, so if one of the three Bolts dies you can't add the dropped one to compensate.

    The focus of this idea is not to have a functional five man core. It peels layers away like an rocket but those layers all have a purpose as a singular layer.
    Hannibal haris defensive fireteam
    Bolt Spitfire and SF mid table
    Bolt Drop bears taking a section of table with SF option
    Valkyrie and Senior doing what they do best, CC enemy units.
