My thoughts:

Once again I'm really impressed with the Collosus. Great firepower (12 shoots per formation) and good armour (3+ save).

I really have to use my SAgitariis more offensivly and maybe drop the minoris Co and gives transport minoris to both skitaris and Sagitariis.

Avengers are really great for ground attacks!

Crusaders meh... but i guess they're there for shielding.

Thanks again. Nice report too.

Do you feel that the colossus is too cheap at 250 or does it feel about right?

I can't quite tell from your pics, but are you trying to keep your formations in cover? It really helps keep them alive, especially the crusaders.

I definitely would like more opinions on the transport mnorus. In my games, they usually work to push the sagitarii to a defensible spot with good firelanes.

In my games, they move the demi-cent into the open where they promtly get shot at then assualted and broken.

Hey, I never said I was a good player :)

hah... that's what crusaders are for. Makes it hard to assault and they last at least a turn before getting toasted which should give those sagitarii time to sustain on whatever wants to assault. :)

Vaaish: i think the Collosus cost right. I consider the a slower but more resilient predator formation.

Yes, i will use 2+ Transport minoris in my next game!

Cool. BTW could you post the results here: viewtopic.php?f=22&t=25866

Just follow the pattern in the first post.

Thanks!

Another note on the Minorus: try using them similar to how you'd use a baneblade or shadowsword though with better weapons options. Two kitted out with triple turbolasers or plasma can do a lot of damage.

I'd also be curious to see what kind of damage you could do using the crusaders for a clipping assault on an IG tank company followed up with fire from either the barrage missile or the sagitarii.
