    My next tournament will be with simple mission (firefight, frontline, suplies) so, as I'm beginning with vanilla Nomad (after 40+ game with Ariadna and as much with Aleph), I want to try some new toy.

    On the first list, I want to test the Kriza as a main shooter (and defensive FT killer) with the intruder. If possible I want to have one midfield gun so I want a RF heckler.

    On the second one, I want to test some AD. Firefight is a good mission for that but it forbid me to use Tomcat (I don't want to give my opponent easy acess to the "kill more specialist" objectives)

    I also want to try using securitate to hide my lieutenant a little more.

    My harder opponent are usually a Neoterra player (defensive list with FT + Swiss + lack friar with locust for offense) and an Aleph player (offensive list with Achilles, Scylla and/or drakios, some dasyus, mk1/2/5 HRL and 12/13 orders)

    After playing with army for some time, here are the results :

    Tomcats do have non-specialists. I use the e/mitter and mines profile all the time.

    I might steal that first list. Let us know how the RF heckler works. I've been preaching the gospel of it's validity to my playgroup since it dropped. In the second list, what's the reason for all the securitate as opposed to alguaciles or moderators?

    I couldn't possibly see how the RF Heckler could be bad.

    Securitate are probably for the 0 SWC Lt. and the others upgraded to be decoys.

    The Hellcat Spitfire can dominate a turn for me so the SWC can feel justified. I wouldn't mind a discount but I take it decently often anyways, especially if I already have a low SWC playstyle going like Geckos.

    He is some kind of cheap spitfire prowler (less efficient but two third of the price and half the SWC). Based on how good the spitfire prowler is, the heckler should have a lot of potential

    Regarding the securitate, @loricus have the good idea : it's a free SWC lieutenant and I can spam 3 securitate to hide my lieutenant (good idea in firefight where every AD is Van Zant).


    For the hellcats, I plan to play them in two waves : the boarding shotgun turn 1 to kill any group of troops my oponent have, then, when my opponent think I don't have any AD left, I bring the spitfire turn 2 (or even turn 3) to do some killing, steal supplies or dominate a zone in frontline
