Games last night

Post  Aegwymourn on Sat May 09, 2015 12:47 pm

Thanks Ian and Jordan for some awesome games last night. Had two super close games and one small blowout. I can live with that while still coming to grips with the rules for N3.

Need to work on my lists more. Right now I am fairly limited to what I own, going to change that soon though.

Next time I'll go for objectives instead of just a blood bath (or try not to fail a last minute roll on WIP 15. Razz

And maybe I'll have some painted Nomads with some surprises of my own.

Or I'll just cheat and play Steel Phalanx.

Soon you will have too many choices to make and the hardest part of the game will be deciding what list to play.

Has already happened. I keep redoing my list. To many choices! All so good!

And that doesn't even include future releases like the Kaeltar(sp?) with its Tohaamon.

Can't wait to see those rules.

Also beyond super-dee-duper pumped for Scylla, Drakios, and their rules. *fanboying so hard*

Well from what I understand the tohaamon will have the first set of stackable "buffs" in the game. I really hope that they are not so good to be auto-include. The rumors on the main model is already amazing (20ish points with CoC) that anything the tohaamon do will be gravy.

I dunno if I am sold on the "sexy librarian" look, but that is part of the aesthetic. So while it might not be my boat I can understand it. I haven't heard much of their rules rumors, they looking good?

Haven't heard any rumours myself. They're usually wrong anyway.

2 FOs (Clipsos/Kotail), 1 Doc+Eng (Kumotail), 1 specialist (Delegate) for a total of 4 Specialists. Missing a Hacker though. Debating dropping Nemma for Aelis.

Neema is tougher and gets me a LRL. Aelis is a Hacker and has a K12 combi. Not to mention Neema can do some fun shinanigens that I haven't begun to learn how to use (Cautious movement and whatnot). Such tough choices Razz . Although even with the -3 WIP for doing a hacking objective the Clipsos/Kotail/Delegate are all on 10s and the Kumotail is still an 11.

Also debating dropping Nemma for a Sakiel with Viral and maybe another FO?

To many choices!

Everyone can cautious move but it's important to have at least one heavy lifter in there. Normally I would say Ectros with HMG but that's more boring than Neema.

stealth lets you enter someone's 8 ZoC from behind without generating an ARO.

Very, VERY good for cc characters and AD:Combat drop

It also let's you use cautious move inside someone's zone of control. That's what you were thinking of I believe.

I could go either way. The first has one heavy hitter (Neema) while in the other she's broken into 2 bits that are medium hitters. Either way they look pretty good. Although, Gao-tarsos.

I'm struggling to find a niche for him. I like the model and the rules but I cannot think of something that something else does better. If he was 10ish points cheaper then I could swap him into a Makaul/Sakiel kind of point range.Admittedly that would be way to good for what you get. Right now it competes against the Clipsos that is cheaper and a specialist, or the Kotail, and that model is just bananas. I guess I want to get a bit more familiar with some of the more basic gameplay as well.

Indeed!

Needed a break from 40k and thoroughly enjoyed the couple of games of Infinity I have played. Working on expanding the model collection and need to get back to painting.
