    Sounds about right. A Mk12 is 3-4 points more than a Breaker Combi, Kinematika doesn't cost anything and an EXP CCW is only 1pt more than DA.

    So superjump == Nº2 in the troop that is needed to make the fireteam and most often than not is the leader? XD

    Now I want ALL my greeks to use Kinematica L2, since it costs "nothing"... -.-

    And there is also the Flash Pulse, which gives her a better reach than Eudoros' Mk12. And the +2CC, +1PH...

    She'll be on Aleph, but no word about as if that means vanilla only, ASS or OSS or both. I doubt OSS will get her, however, since that would make Andromeda "not the only melee troop there".

    I would really like her in OSS since she would bring so much to OSS, but it's quite unlikely:
    _ best CC fighter + very good BS fighter
    _ eclipse
    _ high mobility (superjump + ODD + stealth)

    Yeah. You can see it in Perseus’ profile as well.

    honestly dont know how you're all comparing the two, not like they fit even close to the same role considering ones a relatively cheap Enomotarco unlock rocking a non-SWC weapon thats packing DAM15 and spitfire range bands (And B4 linked) to a super jumping rooftop hunter that never wants to pick a fight over 16....

    I think it’s that they are both BS13, which is only a couple of characters right now. Plus the fact that Perseus and Hippolyta both seem to underscore the fact that something that myrmidons have might be cheaper in the way CB is calculating points now.

    Well, OSS would certainly have a better go at Looting and Sabotaging with a profile like that....

    She certainly looks like a fun unit, I'm excited to pick up the box.

    Now imagine if she gets some specialist profile in steel phalanx.

    I disagree here, a myrmidon list will have Phoenix and Machaon as the Enomotarchos for Fireteam 1, while Fireteam 2 will either be of Thorakitai (with Thrasimedes), or a second Myrmidon link with, much likely, the Myrmidon Officer (as a Chain of Command, points and SWC allowing, so you have specialists in both teams without adding an AHD).

    In short, the way Eudoros tends to be used, he could not have neither the Nº2 nor the Enomotarchos, and very few people would notice that. Of course, having it gives more tactical flexibility, since you can "break" 9 myrmidons in either 2 teams of 4 and a loner, or three teams of three (kinda like Tohaa), but I've never seen that done.

    Anyway, both H and Eudoros have a very defined role: front to the enemy, and if said enemy gets into melee, kill it.

    From the main page :

    Hippolyta’s profile is new in the Infinity Universe, and though we’ve revealed much already, will be updated in Infinity Army on August 1 and you’ll find her either among O-12 troops, the Steel Phalanx, or part of a vanilla ALEPH force.

    If the profile is the same as what o-12 get then she's not adding tons into steel phalanx. There's already a bunch of good myrmidon characters that are decent in cc, some bring eclipse already. Nice to have something new to play with of course but she doesn't seem a game changer at the moment.

    I'd like to see her running the "leader" theme through from aristeia, maybe LT lvl2, strategies 1,n 2 or something like that would be cool.

    That would be a simple Enomotarchos in the Greek Sectorial. Making her a LT2 seems strange, since Lt2 is a master tactician and stategist, Hector is a much better candidate for such skill if SP were to get it.
    Making her a Lt option wouldn't add much, anyway, since most linkable greek characters can be.

    Yeah maybe, steel phalanx could do with a lick of paint. I'm sure hector would qualify for lt2 now it's a thing
