Rose City Raid – To Nomad or Not To Nomad?

To Nomad or not to Nomad, that is the question, that I am currently considering. I got into this came for Riot Grrls, and the Bakunin Sectorial in general. As I was learning list construction and how the game was played I noticed that in NA2 the StarCo Free Company of the Star also has Riot Grrls available. And that the Riot Grrl Core is hilarious with either Avicenna or Emily as the fifth member.

Alright, this is the second list that I built for Highly Classified. The first one had a full five person core of Riot Grrls, which is fun, but has a hard time actually doing all of the classifieds.

 ZOE & PI-WELL . (0 | 47)
  ZOE (Hacking Device. UPGRADE: Stop!) Combi Rifle, D-Charges / Pistol, Knife. (0 | 28)

Open in Infinity Army

I was fairly pleased with this list. I had gained a good melee piece and felt confident in my ability to be able to do any of the classifieds. When I talked to TheDiceAbide about the list on our local game night, he said that the contents were good, but only 10 orders would be rough for hard mode classified decks. So we took a look at StarCo and the things needed for highly classified and came up with this.

GROUP 1  1
 ALGUACIL (Forward Observer, Deployable Repeater) Combi Rifle / Pistol, Knife. (0 | 12)
 ALGUACIL Combi Rifle / Pistol, Knife. (0 | 10)
 ALGUACIL Lieutenant Combi Rifle / Pistol, Knife. (1 | 10)
 ALGUACIL HMG / Pistol, Knife. (1 | 18)
 EMILY (Chain of Command) Combi Rifle + Light Grenade Launcher (Normal and E/M), Nanopulser / Assault Pistol, Knife. (0.5 | 35)
 AVICENNA Combi Rifle, Flash Pulse / Pistol, Knife. (0 | 27)
 RIOT GRRL (Fireteam: Haris) Combi Rifle, Blitzen, Stun Grenades / Pistol, Knife. (0.5 | 30)
 RIOT GRRL Spitfire / Pistol, Knife. (2 | 34)
 IRMANDINHO Chain Rifle, D-Charges, Smoke Grenades / Pistol, AP CCW. (0 | 8)
 ZONDBOT Electric Pulse. (0 | 3)

 HELLCAT Hacker (Assault Hacking Device) Combi Rifle / Pistol, Knife. (0.5 | 28)
 TRANSDUCTOR ZOND Flash Pulse, Sniffer / Electric Pulse. (0 | 8)
 JAGUAR Chain Rifle, Smoke Grenades / Pistol, DA CCW. (0 | 10)
 JAGUAR Chain Rifle, Smoke Grenades / Pistol, DA CCW. (0 | 10)
 WARCOR (Aerocam) Flash Pulse / Stun Pistol, Knife. (0 | 3)
5.5 SWC | 300 Points


For this list we discussed what was needed for the classifieds, and how having some extra orders will help when the roll gets failed 3 or more times. I really like this one, it has the Emily Core, but cheaper, and then the Avicenna haris for some heavy support. The Irmandinho with the little Zond bot is pretty funny.

For the other scenarios in the RCR, this feels strong into Power Pack. And it might do ok in unmasking. The next task will be to try and find a pair that is strong in Frostbyte and Transmission Matrix. Which seem opposed in what they want in list composition.

Something to think about for later.
