Tau Ceti Lancers 3145 300pts.
« on: 31 December 2013, 15:17:13 »
So I decided I wanted someone for my (still in development) Fidelis list to fight. As someone who played the 4th Tau Ceti Rangers in the Jihad timeline I was a bit shocked at the reorganization that took place to create the Lancers. Looking at some of the unassembled and unpainted minis I've laying around I came up with this list:

Black Hawk 2 (skill 2) 40pts.
Shadow Hawk IIC 4 (skill 2) 31pts.
Wraith TR1 (skill 2) 24pts.
Dola DOL-1A1 (skill 2) 18pts.
Asshur Artillery Spotter (Standard) (skill 2) 16pts.
Asshur Artillery Spotter (Standard) (skill 2) 16pts.

Eyleuka EYL-45A (skill 2) 27pts.
Ebony MEB-10 (skill 2) 18pts.
Ebony MEB-10 (skill 2) 18pts.
Ebony MEB-10 (skill 2) 18pts.
Danai Support Vehicle (Standard) (skill 2) 11pts.
Danai Support Vehicle (Standard) (skill 2) 11pts.

Defiance DFC-O (skill 3) 26pts.
Defiance DFC-O (skill 3) 26pts.

Total: 300pts.

Now, I know the skill levels are overinflating the points costs. I also know that this list will be horribly outnumbered in most scenarios. FM:3145 says the Lancers are elite skill level and their aerospace assets veteran so those are the skill levels I went with. This really is a case of fluff trumping logic.

That said, given that the Lancers are composed of medium and light 'Mechs does this look like an A rated CCAF unit?
