I am back with this weeks troop review. Today I am doing part two of the Highlander Grey. Part one can be found here. The greys are a solid unit that you will use or face often. As with all of my other part two reviews I’ve got synergies and lists to follow.
I was under the impression that each factions starter boxes came with an HI troop. In the absence of an HI, I will review the Maakrep Tracker. He is the MI trooper and available in both vanilla and the Onyx force. Let’s asses this guy and determine if he’s worth taking. A friend of mine mentioned that this was not the vanilla starter box as I previously thought. At any rate today’s review will be of the Maakrep Tracker from the Onyx Force starter pack.
This week I am moving onto the Nomads HI from the starter box. The Mobile Brigada is a solid trooper with very good armor and great stats. If you have been paying attention I have been going down the list as shown in the Army Selector so next week will be Combined Army. Click to read more on this solid Troop profile.
On this week’s troop review I go over the 3rd Highlander Greys. A solid trooper from the Ariadna Starter pack who will definitely find his way into many Caledonia lists, but his shortcomings may cause him to be skipped often in vanilla lists.
Continuing on with my plan to review one heavy soldier from each faction, I decided to review the Domaru Butai from the Yu Jing. I am currently learning how to play as this army and have been struggling with the switch from Haqqislam Bahram to Yu Jing Japanese Sectorial Army.
The Knight of Montesa is a strong HI troop available to the PanOceania faction. It comes with some very strong loadout options and is a sturdy addition to any army. I have been focusing on the HI troopers that come in the starter packs for each faction.
For a long time when I played the Hassassins. I opted out of taking any Asawira. I felt they were far too expensive when I could fill out almost twenty orders in most of the lists that I played. Why spend around forty points when I can field almost an entire link of Ghulams for that same cost? Here is a quick break down of all of their abilities and then we’ll decide if this guy is worth taking on your team.
