    Except, he is ex Samurai so his CC and MA skill should be higher than Hawkwoods. Giving him NWI and Shock Immunity is fine but technically, without a doctor Hawkwood is harder to take out of commission than a Domaru...

    Would tactical awareness or inspiring leadership really suit better... CB wouldnt want to change the feel of the army but wouldnt mind giving it a slight boost either.

    I honestly wouldnt want to buy the Col. If he's Samurai in name only, "IF YA KNOW WHAT I MEAN".

    I just mean he might have armor that would have JSA or YJ style but is not Domaru. But I think it should look more unique to him. He could almost look like the force itself! Majorly JSA body with PanO shoulders, Haqq Boots, YJ helmet. Though, knowing CB he wouldn't have a helmet.

    That would would be dope, the look would be awesome though I have this one disagreement.

    I don't have the book so I can't say his fluff/lore verbatim but was he not a Samurai? And if he's a Col. that means he was a senior ranking Samurai so he would not have been Haramaki and Tanko and Daiyokai did not exist yet. The only other Samurai I can think of if you choose to recognize them as such are the Oyoroi Pilots... so it just makes sense that Ikari's base profile is a Domaru and building up on top of that allows him to be an LT that isnt easy to assassinate in a sectorial of obvious Lt's and no CoC and it would allow him to really get shit done in Close Range. Like how other LTs are obviously gunfighters. He can bully someone off an o objective. If you have a good reason why his base profile wouldnt be a Domaru, I'm all ears...

    Ikari has a deep hatred now for JSA and YJ. He would refuse it out of spite. Ikari Company is the most despicable Mercenary company. They will do anything. Need to force workers to go back to their job that's literally killing them? Call Ikari. They will do anything legal and some things that are not. They are the muscle that drug lords hire. Sure, they will do some things that would be considered good humanitarian acts, but don't kid yourself. They do it for the money. Not because they care.

    I dont mean he would still be practicing any honor I mean his skill set, equipment and weapons. It wouldn't make sense for him to not have those things. Like, you're telling me he wouldnt use their weapons against them? What about skills in shooting and CC while he was in the military. He wouldnt use them out of spite? Come on man. None of that makes sense. If he can afford to hire Wu-Ming, Daiyokai and Karakuri, he can afford to keep up standard Domaru Armor. Especially with access to 3 Engineer types including Tokusetsu who would have the most xp with Domaru Armor. You want him to be something else than a Domaru with addons, just say it. Say it would be neat if he preferred the mobility of the Yuan Yuan but now since we discovered that one sculpt isnt actually based on Ikari, well I'm not so sure he would compared to being a Col. Maybe he's a wildcard version of Oyama with a Multi-weapon, counterintelligence and no grenades costing 36 points or something... Actually, I just made up this version of Ikari and being a Domaru with Counterintelligence actually really makes sense a d would allow Ikari to leverage his forces with all those irregular ordered troops a little better. Or literally any other command and control skills while being a Domaru cause of his rank.

    I'm reading Uprising right now and actually see nothing about him being Samurai. He was a commander in the JSA but that doesn't mean Samurai. It's not like the period in Japan when the Samurai took over the government. I certainly see him using JSA equipment for the company. He embezzled money and moved equipment for it after all. But I don't see him using it himself. But then again I could be wrong. His rage is directed at the very concept of honor. So yeah i could certainly use it. And it's seems to be in Ikari the only requirements are to be able to fight and have a grudge against JSA and YJ. He's also pretty old by the time of forming Ikari Company. He's had two sons die in pointless JSA fights and his daughter was forced to commit seppuku because of a botched mission by her superiors. So I see him more as a tactical guy rather than brawler. But he could possibly get himself a new body too.

    More Col Yevgeny than Oyama in age... you're right a new body sure (Edit... huge oversight on my part, mybad, it was late for me and I only glanced at his base profile in army app and not his loadouts, but also yevgeny's got no command skills, he just puts sensor in a fireteam.) I still think he would have JSA level CC skills but age might make him as useful with a rifle as yevgeny... I'd really like to see what happens with him since I feel ikari company still needs to be fleshed out a little more. Just my opinion, not for everyone.

    Colonel Ikari does seem to be more of a businessman and strategist than field tactician. The sort of person who understands that there's no point dying for pay when there's other schmucks to do it for you.

    Voronin has both +1 Command Token and Strategos L1 as the Lieutenant, those are both commands skills.

    I think the could be but be more of a tactical leader. Maybe +1 command token or Lt. +1 order. He would at least have the average JSA CC skill.

    I apologize, I had only glanced at the base profile in the army app, that was my mistake, I should have known better, it was late for me and that is glaring now that I'm looking at it the next day.
