Stitarii Ranger Alpha - 150 - 230
Arc Maul - 50
Arc Pistol - 30


Skitarii Ranger - 80 - 115
Galvanic Rifle - 35


Skitarii Ranger - 80 - 115
Galvanic Rifle - 35


Skitarii Ranger - 80 - 115

Skitarii Fresh Forged - 65 - 140
Radium Carbine - 35
Omnispex - 40


Skitarii Specialist - 90 - 285
Transuronic Aquebus - 180
Photo-Visor - 15


This is my first list for shadow war, I'm not sure how effective it will be but the plan would be to have the Fresh Forged within six inches of the Specialist so he can make shots without the cover penalty


Is the Arc Mail a good melee weapon? Do I have a solid list here, or should I shift things around?

Here is my list, though I have not yet played:

Skitarii Ranger Alpha Leader Knife 150
Phosphor Blast Pistol 40
Frag Grenade 25

Skitarii Ranger Trooper Knife 80
Galvonic Rifle 35
Red Dot Laser Sight 20

Skitarii Ranger Trooper Knife 80
Galvonic Rifle 35

Skitarii Ranger New Recruit Knife 65
Galvonic Rifle 35

Skitarii Specialist Specialist Knife 90
Arc Rifle 40

Skitarii Specialist Specialist Knife 90
Transuranic Arquebus 180
Photo Visor 15
Red Dot Laser Sight 20

1000

Recruiting a second specialist from the get go seems like a good thing to do as it will cost a prometheum cache later in the campaign if you want them with some sort of equipment. I figured I would purchase a power sword for my alpha with the first 100 points you get after game 1 and then add red dot sights and another grenade throughout. Game 2 I would recruit another fresh forged.

Not great, imo.

The Arc Maul would be a good weapon on a model with good melee stats, but Skitarii don't really have those. Even the Alpha is squishy. The second he runs into a legit CC opponent (Tyranid, DE, CSM, etc.) he'll get pasted.

You also don't want your leader in the danger zone, especially if the rest of your team is shooty. And melee is extra dangerous due to the potential of being put OOA after going down in a one-on-one fight.

An Omnispex is a good buy, and a recruit is a good place to put it, but if you're doing that you don't want a Rad Carbine on him. He needs to hang around in the same range band as his team, so if they all have Galvanic Rifles he should too.

It's a little boring but the best Skitarii build is Galvanic Rifles on everyone and 3x Arquebuses. You could throw a Plasma Caliver in there -- it's not terrible, but it's worse than the Plasmagun in every possible way, for no good reason, and that stings. Carbines aren't as good as rifles, and the pistols aren't much to speak of unless you roll a gunslinger specialist or are buying them as sidearms for your Arquebus snipers late in a campaign.

So your build is cool/fluffy but not particularly competitive.

I recently played a game against Tau. I highly recommend taking the Omnispex and keeping the squad together, I was able to paint fighters and quickly drop them, without any kind of cover saves and the -1 mod on the galvanic rifles, pathfinders didn't stand a chance.

That seems like a pretty solid list, it's not far from what I had actually.

Though I only had one photo-visor on my sniper since he was the only one separated.

It's important to keep in mind how much you plan to be using the Omnispex too. I used it on my alpha and he basically ended up never firing his rifle in both games, so perhaps it may be to spend the 35 pts from that galvanic elsewhere, other than that I'd say you've got a pretty solid list.

I was thinking of doing a very similar list for an up coming campaign. I only had a Photo-Visor on the Aquebus and my Fresh Forged had not gun since he would be using the omnispex. This leaves me with 65 points that I do not know what to do with. I could and another Fresh Forge just to have another body on the field or put the points into upgrades, maybe add a red dot the the Aquebus to make it slightly more reliable. This is where I am stuck at.

I'm not on board with arquebus at all. There's no way you should be getting shots at it's range unless you're not using enough terrain.

"'players must agree how they are going to select their armies, and if any restrictions apply to the number and type of models they can use."

This is an actual rule in the actual rulebook. Quit whining about how you can imagine someone's army touching you in a bad place and play by the actual rules.

What do you mean? There are plenty of ways to maximize it's chances of making hits.
