Only assuming that someone is actually going to use Combat Jump rather than the level 2 skill that lets them come on from a table side. There are very few instances where I'd consider doing that - the risk is far too high to scatter off and land in front of the enemy's guns and just fall over dead :(

Also, welcome to Infinity Brookesy, let me know when you've got your dudemans together, and we'll have a game :D

After a chat at Outpost last Tuesday I thought I'd play around with the list builder, and came up with this;

Image Yu Jing - Japanese Sectorial Army | 10 models
________________________________________________________

Image Miyamoto Mushashi (26|0)
Image Shinobu Lieutenant (50|1)
Image Oniwaban (44|0)
Image Saito Togan (41|0)
Image Ninja EXP (38|0)
Image Ninja Sniper (50|1.5)
Image Keisotsu Combi (9|0)
Image Keisotsu Combi (9|0)
Image Keisotsu Grenadier (14|0.5)
Image Keisotsu HMG (18|0.5)
________________________________________________________

299/300 points | 3.5/6 swc
open with Aleph Toolbox Image : direct link

I'd fit more ninjas in, but figured I should at least bring the list up to 10 models. :P

So is this just a stupid idea? Or is it playable?

I'd probably make a couple of slight changes if I were to put together that ninja list - mostly, if your LT is in hidden deployment, you start the game in Loss of Lieutenant, which is no good at all. Second, Musashi is an Irregular, so only he can use his order - this makes me think that we could squeeze in another ninja there...

Here, we've got a 4-man Keisotsu link-team that can just set up a killzone for anything that challenges them (4-man gives them Sixth Sense lvl2, so no sneak attacks) and gives you 4 orders in the bank. The difficulty with the rest of the list is being able to get enough orders on the board without losing your advantage for taking so many TO infiltrators. If you're in hidden deployment (no model or token on the table) you're mostly immune to damage, but you also don't generate an order. As such, you'd probably be best deploying one of your TO dudes as an actual TO marker near your home base, so you've got 5 orders, meaning that the first dude who activates has a healthier 6 orders to do things with, like being an Oniwaban starting just outside the enemy's deployment zone, so you can go and thin their order pool :twisted:

Overall, a list like that is going to be really fragile, though, with no heavy lifters at range. It would totally mess with people's mind though, and would probably be a blast to play :D If you wanted to borrow the models to try it, I've got the Keisotsu, an Oniwaban, Saito Togan and 2 ninjas - the rest wouldn't be too hard to proxy up!

Edit:

Actually, looking at that basic premise again, you could actually roll with nothing but Oniwaban. Have a look at this:
Image Yu Jing - Japanese Sectorial Army | 10 models
________________________________________________________

Image Shinobu (50|0.5)
Image Oniwaban (44|0)
Image Oniwaban (44|0)
Image Oniwaban (44|0)
Image Saito Togan (41|0)
Image Keisotsu Combi (9|0)
Image Keisotsu Combi (9|0)
Image Keisotsu Lieutenant (9|2)
Image Keisotsu HMG (18|0.5)
Image Raiden HRL (31|1.5)

You've got 4 TO Superior Infilitration models, 1 TO Infiltrator, 1 CH:Limited Camo (giving you a single reveal as a marker and then standing around fighting like a regular dude), and the same 4 orders from the Keisotsu. Turn 1, the Raiden clears out any models that prevent an Oniwaban from committing to the assault (with a rocket launcher no less), and then you run in and clean up what remains...

I have a pile of Salvital (spelling?) cans that will be turned into a refinery, a deadzone landing pad on the way, and I will be posting asking for some advice soon on how to make some walls and doors look like they should be scatter terrain.

And seeing as though I should really be doing lists here...

I think I have given up on "what can I get the cheapest" and am now just thinking slowly put together something fun, interesting and cool looking.

The good thing about Infinity I think is that there really isn't much of a cost for purchasing models, so long as they come in blisters. $10 for a heavy infantry with an HMG or $10 for a light infantry with a combi rifle, and with only about 10 of them at most? Of course, then you buy other models, and then a few more... and, well, you know how this addiction goes ;D

The one bit of feedback that I've got for that list is that it seems to be relatively soft. The Shang Ji and the Bao with sniper are solid, but the rest is quite light. I wouldn't worry about trying to tool up Celestial Guards with heavy weapons primarily, as they're not the best shot going around, and you can spend your SWC elsewhere to much better effect. Yu Jing have HMGs coming out the wazoo, so I'd try and get at least one of them in there - they're great assault weapons because the high burst makes them more likely to nail your face to face shots. Otherwise, there really isn't such a thing as a bad list in this game, so take what looks to be fun and see if you can make it work :)

Also, if you wanted to line up a game some time Mikey, you can borrow some of my Yu Jing and see how it goes :)

These small model count games are the best, as long as you can keep them at a low model count ;)

That why my lists will always look a little off, because iv worked out the best buys to get me an amount of models I can use in a few different ways. And I will try to avoid getting more ;)

I got extra lucky, I used a tournament prize voucher so got about $60 worth for about $30, only 7 models but enough to fill out my 250 lists :)

So in playing around with the morat sectorial lists and I have a box of yaogat (that someone got me for commish work :)

So I watched a bat rep and a guy was using a link team, and I though I need to check if I have access to any linkables.. Turns out it's the yaogat :D



Image Combined Army - Morat Aggression Force | 9 models

Image Morat Combi (16|0)
Image Morat Paramedic (20|0)

Image Yaogat Combi (31|0.5)
Image Yaogat Combi (31|0.5)
Image Yaogat Spitfire (35|1.5)
Image Rasyat Spitfire (40|1.5)

So the intent is to run the four yaogat as a link team, their expensive, but with the morat as order monkeys and the combat jump spitfire I was pretty happy.

I think the kuragat could be swapped out for spec op? But I'm not familiar with their rules yet.. Simmo is implying their really versatile pre game
