    Hey guys, since the other thread got kind of derailed (Quarians lol) I thought I'd start a Mass Workshop general.

    Turns out there's a lot of new releases coming out, including new omni-sculpts for some special characters for the Turians, Asari, and Hanar.

    Unfortunately, they're also raising prices again, so unless you can hack the mini-facturing programs, you're going to have to spend a lot of credits just to buy basic troops. Don't even get me started on the "haptic interface" gimmick either. They're just trying to get you to spend credits on stuff you don't need.

    Also, there's going to be a new starter set, called Battle for the Citadel. They might even be bringing back the ship-based game they had a while back, with the popularity of ship models. What was that called? Alliance Patrol? Corsair something?

    The new foundation and washes palette color chits are awesome, BTW.

    Rachni, they just tend to be more for the historical gamers. Plus, there's no special characters anymore - but you can use Asari commandos in the army, but only as an elites choice, and your queen can't do anything else while it controls her.

    I did hear a rumor they were making a comeback though.

    Playing a STG army and winning should be ranked alongside achievements like playing 4 chess games against 4 people and winning all of them.

    Samara has got to be the worst special in the game. She doesn't follow commands from the HQ, has mediocre biotics, and you constantly have to make morality rolls.

    If you want a biotic heavy character, take Jack or Morinth. Liara isn't as good as she used to be, they gave here some kind of infiltrate ability or something.

    Problem is that if you spread your forces too thin and a couple of units get wiped out the collective processing is disrupted, weakening you quite a bit.
    And if you gather up you become a target for artillery.
    Risk vs Reward, just as it should be.

    Ignore the Colossi and focus on the infantry. Make sure you take upgrades which decrease their shields quickly - Geth have mediocre toughness and a shit armour save. Without shields they get torn up by any decent Anti-infantry fire. Or, take a detachment of Quarian allies and spam AI hack.

    You know what fucking sucks at the minute, my Volus list.

    Biotic's are shit, their tech units are really expensive I can hardly afford them and their troop choices can only move once every other turn due to the out of breath rule.

    I mean they gain access to mercs, which gives them basic troop choices from a lot of armies, but it doesn't make up for the lack of good elite choices.

    You're just going to have to accept the fact that your army will suck. The whole point of a Volus army is that they allow you to take a mishmash of units from different books all in the one army. The Volus themselves are just to provide your mercenaries some buffs. Trying to play Volus only lists would be like trying to play a Geth list with nothing but combat drones.

    Wait, I think I know her... that is, I know to stay away from her.

    I tried several times to record her, I even did it from nearly 300 yards away using a scope on my bot recorder, but she STILL saw me. I swear to god, she must have some SERIOUS upgrades in her suit.

    "Fleet" is kind of a strong word. If they'd tried to attack the Citadel with it, the defending ships would have torn it to shreds. It was mostly a response crew that the Alliance scrambled to help.

    And it was presented by a Quarian, idiot. Get your facts straight.

    Shepard's Army

    He can field Blue Suns, Alliance, Cerberus, Geth, Rachni, Krogan, Asari, Turian and Quarian armies!

    provinding that you field a related hero with them.
    -Zaeed Massani (Blue Suns)
    -Urnot Wrex (Krogan)
    -Tali'Shepard vas Normandy (Quarians ...wait, what?!)
    -Samara/Morinth (Asari)
    -Rachni Queen (Rachni)
    -Legion ("True" Geth)
    -Miranda/Jacob Taylor (Cerberus)
    -Garrus Vakarian "Turian Rebel"(Turian mercs)

    They also have a different defensive doctrine. They dont keep garrisons everywhere, only tokens, but their main fleet immediately recaptures it, destroys the assiliant and leads the counterattack. Its all about fluidity and dynamic strategy.
