I would change this:

Armor section
Rhino
Butcher
Tiger
Sabretooth
Puma
Puma

Support section
Mastadon
Conqueror
Conqueror
Ogre Oem
Puma
Puma


To:
armor
Rhino
Ogre
Butcher
Tiger
Sabertooth

recon
Puma x4

specialist
Mastodon
Conq x2

Depending on the costs I'd consider dumping the Conqs and buying another Mastodon, but then that's my favorite model. If you keep the Conqs, check to see how much a Chain Fire Pod costs (Upgrades) and put one on the Mastodon if you can.

Use the Pumas as a flanking force. Double-move then down whichever side of the table provides the most cover so that your opponent can't shoot them up, then rush a group of models that are bunched up enough that their Flamers can overlap multiple targets. This strategy can wreck havok on a group of models grouped around an ECM model since the Flamer's AOE attack ignores the Jamming bonus.

what do you think about two long gun Mastadons instead?..are vehicles and infantry a necessity or can I win with a CAV only force? are the Pumas a good Recon Cav or should I drop two and add two different ones..Thanks for sorting this list out for me,As I mentioned before..I used the TFC program and this is a 4000 point force..but I think the points are a bit different on the new data cards.Also would you keep the armor line-up as is, or drop one for points elsewhere?

To:
armor
Rhino
Assassin
Butcher
Tiger
Sabertooth

recon
Puma x5

specialist
Mastodon long rifle
Mastodon long rifle

smoke strike x4


Ok I edited the list once more, dropped the Conqs..added 2 Mastodon LR's, dropped the Ogre, added an Assassin, had enough for another Puma and 46 points left over..I dropped the Ogre and added the Assassin so the CAVS all had close to similar movement, Ogre was too slow.

Personally I love Pumas, so you can't go wrong with them IMO. Keep in mind that they're best used as fast attack models and you'll be fine. Just remember that they're fragile, so use them aggressively to inflict some damage before they get chewed up.

I'm bringing Sirk's Strikers back from retirement thanks to the kickstarter, even painted up some of the metal figs I've had kicking around for 9 years or so...

Even have some pix still kicking around the boards here
