PART I, SANDEEP In advance sry for my bad English and if someone want help me with the edition for the text can send me a mp with the changes and I will edit the post. Sandeep, or like a mate said one time 'Master of nothing'. He doesn't have one thing op, but can do all things good and can provide his entire crew of a lot of interactions. SANDEEP Card Front With his Arcane Shield and Impossible to Wound he's enough tanky to can move arround the enemy. (thx to @Adran for help me in this paragraph) His synergies with his crew come from Beacon. The ability allows other friendly non-Peon models within 12”and LoS to take Ca actions from his card with a -1 Ca. Each Ca action from his card can only be copied once each turn, but one model can use different Aps, like @Euclid said miniatures that can get suits are good in this, like Steamfitters, Oxfordian or Bishop and Student of All that let him do 1Ap when other copy with 1Ap, to give us great combos like the Effigy combo (thx @WWHSD) or others less important. Attack actions (1) Gada: attack that each limited upgrade gives an especial triggers or habilities. (1) Arcane Strom: a good attack that can be nice for copy with people like Cerberus that have to atack and dmg, and this have printed for chain with Student of All. (1) The Mind Among The Sense: can be used in a lot of things, my favourite is teleport another miniature and push Sandeep to give him more movility, and also with can heal. Tactical Actions (0) The Path To Salvation: This only be taken by Academics or Minions but are awesome positioning spell, need the but is a worth SS. (0) As Your Deed, So Your Destiny: the interact trick, with can be push before, and can be declared engaged. With out upgrades we have a durable master, that can give a lot of versatility to his crew, and can hit, can Ca, can push, can heal, can Interact, can teleport... and we doesn't see his upgrades... ( It sounds like a comercial, but seriously I love this guy ) PERSONAL UPGRADES Unaligned Sage: That allow to take Academics like Sanctioned Spellcasters or Freikorps Librarian, and let use Beacon regardless of LoS. Gives Sandeep (1) Action Though Inaction to draw when a friend discards to do Flurry or Temporal Shield and does 1dmg to Sandeep that can't be reduced, and (0) The Sight Beyond for no randomize in 6" of Sandeep especially usefull with Oxfodians. We have a lot of different Aps and only 3Aps (4Aps with Student of All) to spend, not bad upgrade but in my opinion we have better options. Enlightened Soul: A card draw each turn if we can kill one enemy and (0) The Formless Mantra to give Incorporeal, for me another time have better options, draw is situational, and Incorporeal unnecesary. Tutelage: Allows to copy Ap from friendly Academic (after discard if have Tutored condition), and (0) Give a Lesson to give Ca and Tutored condition, I think we have a lot of Aps to need copy something more, but a Tutored Howard that can do The Path To Salvation + Nimble + Flurry can be fun A Moment Of Weakness: Give our Gada burning +1 or if we doesn't have Banasuva in play burning +2, and Risks Taken in Anger to can be Toss by Banasuva or Ice Golem if we are crazy and have one in the crew , and two triggers on Gada to summon Banasuva or push Banasuva and give burning if was engaged with an enemy, for me the worst option to summon, you can't summon Gamins and must be in combat. To Behold Another World: Give Gada Paralyzed on Moderate or Severe and (1) To Behold Another World to summon on 8 all Gamins except Poison, 9 Poison Gamin, and 12 Banasuva, within 6", we must add an upgrade (we have 3 to give our Gamins), and if we can't, we can't take this action, for me this is worth on hard Interaction game, for the rest of the games is better Command. Visions in Earth: Shackles of Earth: can't be moved or pushed, and Constant Yammering: so good to prevent enemy Interactions, and pay atention, you cant move or be pushed but can copy (0) The Path To Salvation to teleport. Visions in Flame: Shackles of Flame: can't Cheat Fate, and Don't Mind Me: can take Interact while engaged, another time to heavy Interact schemes. Visions in Wind: Shackles of Wind: may not take Attacks, and Life is Brief: that allows to Interact the turn it's summoned, can give us a Vp if the enemy doesn't pay atention. To Command Another Plane: For me the best option by far, ok, like said before if the schemes are heavy Interact it's better To Behold Another World, but rarely we can see that, up our Gada to a nice 3/4/5, and the summons 8 all Gamins except Poison, 9 Poison Gamin, and 12 Banasuva, within 6" with the same restriction that To Behold Another World. Commands in Earth: Shackles of Earth: can't be moved or pushed, and Reach Of The Heavens: to give +1 or +3 that it's good on Fire Gamin to shot better or Banasuva to engaged with a lot of models thx to 3, and pay atention, you cant move or be pushed but can copy (0) The Path To Salvation to teleport Commands in Flame: Shackles of Flame: can't Cheat Fate, and In Flame Redeemed: to give Slow Inmunity that can be nice if we haven't cards to Cheat Fate to give our Banasuva 3Ap on summon, thx his Melee Expert Commands in Wind: Shackles of Wind: may not take attacks, and A Mighty Vengance: give other friendly models 3 to attack, really nice summoning near to our hard beater like Banasuva or Howard or our Oxfordian gunline. OTHER UPGRADES Arcane Reservoir: If you play Sandeep you can see he is a monster hungry of card, one card more for summon, trigger Student of All, or a random Flurry can make your day, a must on him in my opinion. Seize the Day: If your playstyle is agresive you mut take this upgrade, for 1ss one of the best generic upgrades in the game, if you want play a little more slowly, or defensive you can change this for something else. For me the only to be respected, in the other hand this upgrades are a beast in my crews, and in Sandeep I usually play To Command Another Plane + Arcane Reservoir + Seize the Day
