So here's what I ran last time;

Gates : 4 Eden, 2 spirit and 3 haven.
Court : gharial cv 2 & leopard
sword : 2 tarantulas & 2 firebirds
clan : 2 braves & 2 braves
clan : 2 braves & totem
spear : 2 yari AA , 2 firstborn & 2 firstborn
fist: jaguar & jaguar

I know demo is supposed to be most effective, but " demo central" feels less sporting and fun and my group has never run such focused lists. Plus there's a lot of fun to be had with 2 squads of firstborn!

Anyone else running 5 troops, or are pungari making that unnecessary?

I used to run lots of infantry when I played Shaltari, maybe drop a Warsuit squad for some Pungari?

Thanks Mike. I may give the pungari another run out, I find them a bit squishy and miss the anti tank. But I suppose I have some bodyguards for them and the extra search dice is good. Probably need to give them some game time.

Stopping your Braves die to falling masonry is equally important!

Thanks Mike, I have not tried that combo, so will do!

You say you ran lots of infantry, what did your favoured list used to look like?
