    Edit: Its a more general list. I use it as base for my "button pushing" missions. When i know the mission i make one, two, three changes, like shrouded/cadmus. which shrouded loadout etc.

    I know its a list without much heavy weapons but nearly all heavy weapons are on troops i dislike. I dont play shas for a gwailo or a 5 man link with hmg or spitfire. Dont get me wrong i love this weapons put i dont think its fit my understanding of the shas.

    The list is very light on heavy weapons. Shas can play like that, but it depends on the circumstances. Sabin's question is the key one: what mission are you playing, and against which army?

    OK then. I think you are actually OK on heavy weapons if you don't want the Gwailo or Sheepskin. I would, however, try to take a regular hacker to buff your Q-drone to put it on offense since it is your only weapon with a +band outside of 24". There will be situations where you need that. Which also means you will probably need an Engineer of some sort.

    Sorry, forgot you had Victor. But as your only HMG, you might want to bring either Doc Worm or a Caliban Engineer to bring it back up when it falls.

    This is what I would start with using the same basic idea:

    Open in Infinity Army

    You lose the surprise KHD out of hidden deployment, but you gain a much more resilient Lt. and not being stripped of 2 orders. You've still got up to 3 turn 1 attack pieces if you need them in the Speculo, the Caliban, and the Q-drone.
