Infiltrators or Incursors?
« on: January 22, 2021, 02:29:01 PM »
I have yet to buy either and was wondering which unit is the best game wise?  I like the idea of Incursors being a jack of all trades.

Depends what you want to do. Incursors are more aggressive, Infiltrators are more defensive. I like the deepstrike disruption of the Infiltrators, as it's pretty handy at preventing deepstrike charges, and is great for helping with board control.

Incusors are pretty nice, especially in combat chapters.

I think you will find the Infiltrators being more useful overall.  Omniscramblers are simply fantastic, and give you a nice bubble to protect from reserve (including annoyances like Green Tide).  I find their gun to be more useful as it really opens up the potential for targets.

Incursors, in my view, are more situational.
If there is anything that recent politics has taught us, it is that quotes taken out of context can mean what ever you want them to.
Well I always liked the globals...
I knew I had fans!!!

How does the area denial go though, I assume that you will need a few units for it to actually benefit, I suppose you can protect a key unit or two with one unit.

It's a 12" Bubble from each model, so a couple of 5 man squads can cover a lot of ground.
