In regards of the mission I think you have to much drive on.

In Surging strike, command and control and bunker assault you have to much drive on. There is a lot of points on the commander, Ferrum, katanas and wolverines that will underperform 3 out of four missions. With military complex being a bad mission for them as well as the drive on and shoot will not be as effective against armour 8 buildings.

I would suggest you aim for transports for the commander and exchange the katanas for Sabres with a transport. The commander will be taking focal points in 3 missions, and the Sabres could potentially be used to taking forward focal points as well where as the Katanas are made out of paper in the long run.

Basically I think your drive on army will not do much with these missions and I think it will handicap you not have the movement to take focal points. You seem to like the infantry and sure - if you can use the infantry to take all focal points it can work (you have aimed for more CQB power) but I think the drive on will not work.

Look forward hearing how it went!

Thanks for your comments Egge.

I agree that some of the list chooses are removed from the missions been played, but the main reason to run the list is to finally finish painting my UCM force. Combination of missions and abilities of the UCM make it hard to make a good list compared to the other factions.

If the commander is in the Phoenix can he take focal points? I know there was some discussion about allowing commanders in air units to take focal points but I haven't found the final decision.

To be fair the wolverines are in the list to allow access to the exotic infantry and have the ability to move and hide before a late dash to the focal point. (Hopefully)

The flying commanders can hold focal points. It is in the tournament pack and/or expansion 1 I think. Good luck!
