Guerilla Training: You know no one of us have ever used this to an advantage. The best thing on this is the -1 to hit.

Shame, really; it is a great ability when used right.  I have used it with Pauldrons to great advantage, especially on a dual-level board on which Archer and I played a game.

Yep.

  Bloody headache it was... and it was a lesson to me on how it feels to get sniookered by that ability; I did it to someone else on one of the few times I used such troops.

  Granted, not all boards lend themselves to such things but anything with a good amount of Terrain does (aka City, Jungle, Tunnel boards)

Saw that game. Now you see me now you don't. Hard to react to it on that scenerio.
Always look out for number one, but don't step in number two.

Yeah you could buy it as addons, but now you have the possibility to even get a higher stat for heavier terrains.
And these are already included in the costs, you can substract them and you would get pretty cheap troops.


But in heavier terrains you do not use the Sea Lions, because they have no good Weapons for short LOS, which you have in heavier terrains.
In heavier Terrains you need SMG, Shotguns, HMG, Flamer or real (with two wounds) CC troops.

Thats the Problem of the ACG, too. It were such a great unit for dense jungle fight if they would have keept their shotguns from first edition.
Assault Rifles for heavy enviroment, argghhh. I always can trouble over this topic.

For me its really a pitty that the Sea Lions with cool minis and great fluff is nearly useless.
Maybe except on a two level field, but I think most players don't have a two level field.

Hey Captitol has TWO units with ambush. Imperial has no usefull unit at all with ambush except Pathfinders (Most useless Unit ever!).

What happened with the Pathfinderthread anyway? Is there any progress? (I know it is offtopic)

I think Capital only has Free Marines with ambush. Are you saying the Gunny is a seperate unit? It is tech.

Capitols got Free Marines only with ambush. ;)

And I'd prefer if the discussion kept on topic. <.< Imperial Pathfinders got their own topic elsewhere.

P.S. You people so easily go off topic.  ;D

Yes we do.

Sea Lions have better squad options and a captain option.

ACG stats are better. MAybe this will be fixed soon....

"Off-topic" is thread-jacking; discussing another topic other than the one for which the thread was, originally, created.  Way to goad me into joining your little rebellion, Lopis! ;)

WE NOW RETURN YOU TO YOUR REGULARLY SCHEDULED TOPIC!  THIS HAS ONLY BEEN A TEST!  HAD THIS BEEN AN ACTUAL THREADJACKING, ADMINS WOULD HAVE DROPPED FROM THE CEILING AND EXECUTED YOU ALL IN THE MOST TORTUROUS MANNER POSSIBLE!  THANK YOU, AND GOOD NIGHT!
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!

Isn't Dave "off-topic"?


Back on.

Sea Lions don't "see" alot of combat where I play at. Yet.

heh.

  No they don't...  I think Dragon and myself are the last two to do so around here.

I can field two units of them if I use my ACG as them.

Off topic-don't be silly.

Speaking of ambush-did anyone see that movie last night, that one with all the ambushes and stuff?

Pax,

  This is being discussed right now.  Hopefully, I can pick a certain person's brain on it.  While I think its a typo, I could be wrong here.

So, I somehow got the focus to bring out my Capitols again... And I of course first of all went to this old post.

Archer, did you ever get a answer on this discussion?
