Ok, long time lurker and now first time poster! I bought the Cybertronic Starter Set at Xmas and have picked up a couple more units and bits and bobs since. I've put together a very basic list of everything I have, no upgrades or extras just "straight off the production line" or "out of the cloning vats" troops so no finess or direction has been applied here.

Warlord:- Commander Dr Diana (175)

Lord:- Dr Diana Clone (110)

Troops:- 5 x Chasseurs (75), 5 x Chassuers (75), 5 x Armoured Chasseurs (125), 5 x Armoured Chassuers (125)

Support:- 1 x Attila Mk III (99), 1 x Scorpion (95)

Total:- 879pts

So I'm a little shy of 1000pts and its probably a horribly unbalanced force but its everything I have except Lord Commander Nozaki but he's Mishima. Where to go with it?

Well I'm thinking of Weapons Overhaul and Femoral Enhancement for my Scorpion taking him to 103pts. I'm considering equipping each squad of troops with a SSW5500 so they'd all be 20pts more (95, 95, 145, 145) and the Attila with a Mithochondrial Infusion for 3pts taking me to 970 total. What to spend those extra 30pts on to round it off to 1000pts.

Any suggestions? C&C welcome.

You might consider some basic Cybertronic Enhancements for your troops to bump their RS or A stats. Also, consider bumping the Scorpion's A value and his CC value to make him even more impressive.

Are you playing Basic or Advanced game?

Scorpion options:
- Mitochondrial Infusion to bump his St in CC by 1 for 3 points.
- Steel Skin to bump his A by 1 for 3 points

Chasseur options:
- Sonicator Receptor System for 30 points to give the squad +2 RS or
- Optical Enhancements for 15 points to give the squad +1 RS
- Steel Skin for 10 points to give the squad +1 A

Armoured Chasseur options:
- Dermal Mirror Shards for 15 points to get Camouflage +1

OK, so via some good purchases in the second hand markets I've managed to pikc up some more Cyber stuff. I can add 2 more Diana's (WL 175/L 110), an Everassur (WL 210/L 180), an Immortal (285 points), two more 5 man squads of KS Chasseurs (thinking of using the more posable minis from the KS for Unit Commanders and variety) (2 x 75 Points) and a Cuirassier "Attila" (99 points).

I have subsequently found that the original "Attila" I had was a MK I (from the Starter set) so is actually 135points (from HotSS).

Guess I have lots and lots of painting to do now.

Oh, yeah, in the starter it's the Exterminateur "Attila", not Cuirassier. And it's a monster - possible 7 S14 AVV3 shots and 50% chance to ignore any SP loss make it pretty effective as main line unit and vehicle/warlord killer. And you can bump it's RS with +1 for 6pts, making it even better!

I had a game with the Everassur - it's nice and the 1/4th heal roll for 1 resource is pretty good at keeping 4 wound model alive, allowing you to do risky maneuvers like decimating infantry with the bouncy plasma. Wanted to give Immortal a try, but it's hard for me to justify the price tag even at 1000pts for him.

My main issue with Cybertronic is that even though it has lots of options, it lacks the punch to down vehicles as the Exterminateur is the only thing capable of pumping enough mid-AVV shots to threaten vehicles with armour of 14 and higher.

As a suggestion: try using a HOTSS custom Diana Neoclone for the WL... it's much cheaper. Just keep her well shielded with troops, and make her CC for the 8 resource cards in the advanced game.
