    Hey guys,

    new to Haqqislam here. I'm in love with Vanilla and I already own almost the whole faction.

    What's the general consensus on Yasbir? Is he too difficult to put to good use? Is just deploying him in the middle of the board with Holo2 up a good tactic? What could be a good model to Holoecho him with?

    Thanks in advance!

    I love hiding him as 3 halqas in vanilla. You get to infiltrate as a cluster of cheap models. Often makes you opponent deploy specifically to take them out.

    if you're using him, you defintiely have to make use of his holoprojector l2 to play some mindgames. If you're just using holo1, you can have a hafza FO lsg+rifle for 17pts

    That's what I'm talking about! Even 3 ML can make my opponent's decisions really hard.

    For the 34 pts infiltrator profile:

    Yasbir's strength is the combination of smoke + specialist skills, so he's always an option when i'm building lists for missions that require you to "activate consoles" upfield such as Supplies, Acquisition, and the like. Smoke in, grab/hit the thing, then plant him somewhere out of the way since he's really very vulnerable in reactive. Furthermore, those kind of missions tend to invite opposing minelayers and crazykoalas/madtraps, so the holoechoes make good clearing tools for those obstructions. Yasbir can murder things left midfield pretty well too with smoke and Viral MA3, but that tends to be rather order-intensive and Vanilla Haqq tends to have better options for that.

    Otherwise, I rather bring any one of the other skirmishers such as a Fiday/Djab or one of our camo infiltrators if you are looking to use Yasbir as a purely offensive tool.

    Holoing as 3x Halqa Grenadiers can be really scary too!



    For the holo 1 option:

    eh, not so useful in Vanilla since you have the Hafza option.
