Orca is now "Hover" and flight stand enabled.
And deploying troops onto my table...
- Escalation Orca has limitations added to it by "escalation" that do not exist in APOC. 2nd Turn+, loss of Jink, Escalation bonus, and stratigic reserves.
- APOC Orca is an all star transport for an army that needs to get to the front line. Even with Farsight XV8 based armies, the pick up and fly away option is pretty amazing.
Point of this, they are not the "same" Orca even though they are the same Orca
- Side note, a flight stand enabled Orca is VASTLY more employable on a board. The just don't leave room for us to park our air bus on most boards...
Adding some updates to the top tab.
The "Defense Line Rush"
9-11 XV88s deployed and movable via Orca at a shifting 36"+ gap. Fly your stopping power to the perfect spot, leave with them when it get iffy. Upload and unload is 4 units, you have 4 units.
You might see more Orca action here soon as we shift to 1000 points in our Escalation game. I am back to Farsight so the lists might be focused on that supplement.
