Thoughts on Aurora2

Recent Release icon.jpg

New model - This article is a Work In Progress
This model has only recently been released, and the content in the "Thoughts On" section is based more on theory-machine than actual gameplay experience.

Please don't delete this warning unless you (1) have played several games with the final rules (games with CID rules don't count) and (2) you've reviewed this article and it mostly(★) matches your experiences.

(★) Bearing in mind that other editors may make suggestions you don't think are the "best" but that doesn't make them "wrong". Don't delete stuff just because you disagree with it, please.

Aurora2 in a nutshell

Aurora 2 is "Air Superiority the Caster".

Her design is meant to reflect her controlling the skies above her enemies, and striking hard from advantageous positions. Her three battle directives affect not only herself (as she is in her own command range and has flight), but also her flying forces. She is meant to play as a mid-field caster, buffing her army as she moves up and occasionally takes ranged or magic attacks. Her ranged attack accuracy is not supposed to be a core strength, hence RAT 5. When the going gets tough, she can hold her own in melee with solid defensive stats and a respectable MAT.

Additionally, Aurora has a new form of Limited Battlegroup you will see repeated on two other models in this CID (in varying forms). She can take both Convergence and Mercenary warjacks in her battlegroup, and those models count as the same Faction as she does. Thus, in a Merc army Aurora is a Merc and all of her jacks count as Mercs. In a Convergence army, Partisan triggers, thus Aurora is a Convergence model, and all of the warjacks in her battlegroup count as Convergence.

Drawbacks & Downsides

  • A large base makes her a difficult caster to screen.
  • She can't take character warjacks. So she can't have Rocinante in Soldiers of Fortune. (Although she'll probably never be played in that theme.)
