Monday Mercenary Mutterings: General "Awesome" Ossrum

I've liked Ossrum pretty much since I started playing Mercs, mainly because he reminded me strongly of a more condensed version of Khador's Irusk (1 and 2). He gives a lot of support to the army, whether it's in his spells, his feat, or just outright buffs like tactician.

Mk III didn't change him much, and the ways it did I actually really like. His feat is virtually the same, but now allows him to benefit from the speed portion of it, Martial Discipline is now just plain old Tactician (Rhulic) which isn't very different, and his spell Energizer changed from a variable cost battlegroup movement to a solid cost 2, move 2. Mostly, these changes are just tweaks to make him run more consistently, and he still does what he used to do - but is now LOADS better at it, considering he can take all the Warjacks he always wanted to take.

That seems like a bit of a theme in Mk III, doesn't it? Lets dive in.

Retribution Brainstorming: Kaelyssa

Here's this week's attempt to return to tactics.  I've played Kaelyssa 1 a couple of times recently.  My first game is posted.  I'll probably add the second one at some point soon.  For now, I'm going to talk a little about what she does, and what I should put into her lists.  This is going to be a lot more scattered than my usual first impressions posts; it's as much a request for advice as it is my own tactics post though, so by all means, post whatever Kae-Tech you've amassed over the last couple of months.
