What should Archer play first?
« on: April 19, 2009, 06:03:29 PM »
Yeah...

Which comes out first?  I've been dying to try out the Dominion... or have someone else use it.

1st MarDiv is fun. (Dude- up to three units of Free Marines!)
Cyber is just plain mean.
Cartel is vicious (or pure cheese, depending on who you ask) And Reena wants to show off her guns to someone new....
My Hood doesn't get much use
Bauhaus hasn't been fielded in years (always too many 'Haus players around)
the IMDF force has not been used since.... christ.  I don't remember.

So I would like some opinions...

Can't go wrong with Free Marines. Game over dude!

Reena!

Hmmmm  Maybe, considering she put some fear into Lucky... :)  Even McGee respects her, and he ain't fought her yet.

She was nice to  play against. My advise- shoot her early at a far range.

I chose those Free Marines, 'cause I think they make great silhouettes for target practice.
If sing, sang, and sung, sink, sank, and sunk, and drink, drank, and drunk, how is it that it isn't bring, brang, and brung, think, thank and thunk, and ding, dang, and dung?

Don't even get me started about bad, badder and baddest.  Run, ran AND run...again?  C'mon!

They will be silhoutted behind you. Target parctice. What the heck.

Ambush, brass knuckles, above average leader (gunny) and specialists. Not bad for some convicts.

Not to mention the missing special ability.

You can only hope the time lock on their ammo fails to function so they will only beat you and not shoot you.

Just my humble opinion.

I'm thinking of what armies to bring. I know I can borrow armies, and I probably will, but I feel like bringing some of my painted stuff along.

At the moment it looks like my Hood will get to come along, as will my Crystal Lotus. I think I'll have space for one more force in my Army Transport, most likely my Mishimans.

I can only shudder at what airline travel and customs would do to your figs. :'(

I had a Slann Mage Priest (GW Fanntasy - looks like a frog on a chair) hold me up at the airport once. Thought I was smuggling out live frogs. When they took it out of course it broke even when I told them to be very careful.
