Now that my time with Stryker has come to an end, I'm looking forward to testing out the MkII versions of my other casters, likely in this order: Nemo, Haley, Caine, then my newest, Siege. I don't have any of the epic versions of these yet, though eNemo would be very handy for what I'm planning.
I think the core of my army is going to continue to center around the THead and the Centurion. Not only are they the two heavies I own, but I think they'll work well together. I haven't Pulsed yet against the Cent, but I'm pretty confident I won't suffer much damage from it most often. And whenever the THead is on the board, you'll likely see Arlan. He's quickly becoming a favorite solo. He gives me options, like the GMCA. The JW, the Stormsmiths, and even the Squire do one thing (very well), but I like the variety of these other two solos.
GMCA x 2 (I don't think I'll ever take just 1 again!)
Stormsmiths x 3
Long Gunners Min
and, drumroll please... Field Mechanics.
Yes, I said Mechanics. I have never (in MkI) been interested in this unit. But with the Gobbers' Bodge ability, and the increased effectiveness of Jacks till they're wrecked, I'm gonna try these out to see if they'll lend Arlan a hand. He's a great mechanic, but he can only repair once a turn, and he has two other skills I want to use. So I think a mechanic and three bodgers running around will work wonders, especially for the Centurion.
So, the goal is to chain lightning and CRA and ePulse the infantry, giving 5 focus to the Cent to wreck jacks, while keeping Feora wary of the GMCAs and Stormsmiths. I could potentially drop the Squire and the Mechanics/1 Stormsmith to take the JW for the focus generation, but, like I said, variety.
