Haqqislam reinforcements

There have been quite a few reinforcements to the Haqqislam since their last appearance.

This is Saladin. He is an ALEPH recreation of the Syrian king who famously faced Richard the Lionheart during the crusades. He is meant to be an armies Lieutenant because he provides some really helpful army-wide bonuses while being very durable thanks to No Wound Incapacitation. This is because he has the Strategos lvl 3 rule. Strategos turns his Lieutenant order into a Regular one and also prevents your opponent from reserving units in Deployment.

Murabids Tuareg are TO camouflage infiltrators that are usually Specialists. TO camo pretty much means they have the same camouflage as the alien from Predator. I usually field either the Doctor Plus or Assault Hacker profile because it is very helpful to have one of they guys appear when needed.

Hunzakuts are an Irregular infiltrator that is good at intercepting early game rushes. She also has a deployable repeater which greatly extends the range of my Hackers. This makes her really good at setting traps since they deploy closer to the enemy’s lines.

Shihab Remote is one of the best defensive units available to Haqqislam. This is because he has a Heavy Machine Gun with the Total Reaction rule. Total Reaction allows him to shoot with his full Burst. Typically, this will effect enemy plans in one of two ways: either they will avoid it like the plague to be engaged by the rest of my force or will ignore the rest of my force to focus all their fire on him.

Rafiq Remote is not as immediately scary as the Shihab but it is absolutely crucial against Ariadna given their plethora of camo. This is because it has a Sensor which automatically reveals all hidden units near it. It is also very fast and has a repeater to extend my Hackers range.

The Azr’ail with AP HMG is just plain scary. He is a giant walking suit of armor with a large machine gun. As can be expected he is exceptional at holding down a flank. Since his HMG has AP ammo he is also a decent threat to TAGS.
