    Am I delusional?

    I'm looking at the WuMing in army and didn't they used to have Fireteam Core without the need for a Clipper. I'm looking at it today and they didn't pop up when I put fireteam core on the filter.

    Ikari is a bit odd when it comes to Core fireteams. The only troops allowed to make a "pure" Core are Keisotsu. Wu Ming and Druze must include a Clipper and Tanko, respectively. Not only that, but you can't "short" them by doing 2 Druze + 1 Tanko as a Core, for example, you must field the entire Core exactly as written to form the team.

    The Haris options are significantly more flexible, however, and are a great way to make use of Druze, Wu Ming, Tanko, and Brawlers in a fireteam.

    Due to the weirdness of the links it's a good idea to take an EVO remote. Teampro has helped me a few times. Also great for the +3 for the YY jumping in.

    Ikari is terrible at taking casualties in its fireteam, it is a pure glass cannon army, I never use EVO bot
    I just go and launch everything and kill ppl
    but that's too but we don't have true core Wu ming for LI lists

    Just want to spark up a quick discussion about the load-out of a Wu Ming core? What are people's thoughts?

    I was thinking something like this, but it massively restricts specialist opportunities in the list. Perhaps swapping out the panzer/lsg with the FO profile?

    Fantastic for Limited Insertion games! I think they are great. Though now my new love is Karakuri. For just firefights they are great. I'm disappointed they changed the Clipper to Missile. I liked the SML. They are great in a Haris too. Keep that one in mind.

    May I ask why you would not spend an extra 4 points on the multi rifle LGL with normal grenades?

    Good question, I probably should have provided some initial thoughts with my first post. Generally, I'm not a big fan of Speculative Fire. I find it really order inefficient for not much payoff. And if you're firing the grenade launcher FTF, you may as well use the multi-rifle in most cases (obviously the GL is much better when your opponent has made errors with their positioning and you can leverage the template across multiple targets).

    The nimbus partners really well with the Yuan Yuans and other impetuous chain rifle guys (Yo Jimbo, Desperados, Krakot). It quite drastically improves the odds of the chain rifle suicide runs.

    I was playing around with LI lists yesterday, and I still find it really hard to make one even with the Wu Ming core. The fact that the most expensive lieutenant option in the army is 16 points pretty significantly impacts the types of lists you can bring. What would one of your LI lists looks like?

    That's a good point, I haven't thought of that. Perhaps that's because I'm too used to looking at it from the perspective of ISS, who really likes the toolbox of the spec fire, as it can solve the answer for annoying threaths ISS otherwise have difficulties against (jammers, especially in a link and dismantling a kamau sniper link)

    It's hard to do a Limited list for sure. But can be done.
