Colbie Sterling, Captain of the BRI in a Nutshell
Colbie is a cheap jack marshal who can repair non-faction jacks. Because Meg is a better marshal AND a better mechanic, she rarely sees the table. One situation where she might be taken in the Llaelese Resistance theme where she can be taken but Dirty Meg can not. The other would be if you want Meg and Colbie as two cheap marshals in Irregulars.
Combos & Synergies
Assuming you want to give her a 'jack, there are a few options:
- The Mangler is top choice - it has Thresher, can charge AND use the Crush bonus, AND gets Flank in irregulars. The Mariner also has Thresher, and while it can't charge/crush, it does provide Lash to keep Colbie upright.
- The frugal Freebooter, with Shae and Magnus1 both having ways to make jacks charge for free. This opens up ways to abuse Flank on knocked down targets in Irregulars, with Colbie repairing any Jury Rig damage it takes.
- The are several 'jacks with shields or bucklers which benefit nicely from her Drive - Talon, Nomad, Vanguard, Rover, Swabber and Toro. The Buccaneer doesn't have a shield, but it's cheap and can be annoying with its net.
Drawbacks & Downsides
- Within Mercenaries she loses out to Dirty Meg on almost all points - Meg simply has a strictly better drive. In another faction Mechanikally Adept may swing things in Colbie's favour.
- She is probably the worst 3pt solo in the game. If she has nothing to repair, she has nothing to do.
Tricks & Tips
- She's the only Mechanikally Adept model available to the Protectorate.
- Released for the spin-off boardgame "Undercity" (2015)
