Last, but definitely not least, in my Ikari Company unit nhận xét series is the Nin-Ja. Also available to Yu Jing, Imperial Service, & naturally, JSA, the Ninja is a feared và revered unit on the table top. Considered by many to be the gold standard of TO camouflaged infiltrators, they perkhung an essential role on the table.
Stats & Special Rules
With a name like “Ninja” it should come lớn no surprise that their primary attributes are those benefiting of cthua combat. A solid CC23 and MA3 makes them a deadly cthất bại combat threat, but their poor BS11 might make you look khổng lồ other options for a gun fighter. They are TO Camo Infiltrators, with Multiterrain and Kinematika, all skills designed to lớn get you where you want to lớn go safely.
Tactical Bow, DA DACCW. The cheapest choice, but also carrying the optimal cthua trận combat weapon, this phối up is what you go for when you’re on a very tight budget. It will bởi some of the things a Ninja wants to vì, mostly killing enemies up cthua kém, but it won’t win any medals. Even though this is a cthua thảm combat specialist, melee is always inherently risky, & it doesn’t bring a good ranged weapon to baông xã it up.

Combi Rifle, and Shock/AP/DA CCW. Much more expensive sầu than the tactical bow is the combi rifle. At first, it is easy lớn balk at the price tag, coming in 6 points more (if keeping the DA CCW), but this extra cost is for a good reason. With TO Camouflage, & surprise shot, you can easily put an enemy at -12 khổng lồ shoot you, making your BS11 suddenly look not too shabby. Furthermore, you can enter suppressive fire, which while in cover, will also make you -12 lớn be hit. If you take this protệp tin, always go for the DA CCW if possible, it’s a point more, brings anti-materiel, và is just much better in use than either of the others.
MULTI Sniper Rifle. Despite not having a high BS, this may well be worth considering. As I mentioned with the combi rifle, the MULTI xạ thủ rifle makes it even easier lớn put the enemy at -12 khổng lồ shooting bachồng (thanks to range). Excellent for clearing pesky Total Reaction remotes, or poor combi-armed link team members. This is the most expensive option, which may be part of why it’s so rare on the table, but in certain circumstances, it could really save sầu your butt.
Killer Hacking Device, Tactical Bow. For a mere 3 points more than the regular tactical bow option, you can taông xã on a Killer Hacking Device. This is an amazing choice, since it gives you an inexpensive specialist, and can annihilate enemy hackers with ease. For most armies that can take Ninjas, this is the go-to lớn profile, though against armies lượt thích Ariadna, or that are just lacking many hackers, it may take a bit of extra effort lớn make it worthwhile.
Assault Hacking Device, Combi Rifle. Slowly becoming my favorite profile, the AHD is expensive sầu, but a surprise Total Control should be! The AHD can perkhung more Classified Objectives than the KHD, và brings a combi rifle for suppressing or popping Total Reaction remotes. The only downside is that you thua the DA CCW… oh well, can’t win them all!
Forward Observer, Combi Rifle. If you’re looking for a better gunfighter than the Killer Hacker, but don’t want lớn fork out 40/0.5 for the AHD, then the Forward ObVPS may be a solid middle-ground. Don’t forget that you can surprise shot flash pulse! Stunning someone with a Ninja before you shoot them with a missile launcher can be a gaming winning maneuver.
On the Table
As infiltrators, their main job is to lớn hold the mid-field, harass the enemy, and accomplish objectives, and these are all things that the Nin-Ja does quite well. For Ikari Company, & ISS, they provide the only infiltrating specialist around, so odds are you’re going khổng lồ want lớn go with the KHD, AHD, or Forward Obhệ thống. JSA with their much larger AVA3 can afford khổng lồ take a MULTI Sniper, & would probably benefit doing so khổng lồ handle Total Reaction bots, which can otherwise be a pain for the army.
Overall, the Nin-Ja is very well costed for what it does, just don’t get so obsessed with cthua thảm combat that you miss out a much better BS Attachồng for a single dice CC Attachồng.
