Also, are alloy Shivs actually worth it? Ta!
I've just finished the first base assault and I think I might have buggered the run though up. Being Ironman it really hurts when I have messed up a battle but that really does increase the learning curve. Of the 5 missions I've fled from two of them I could have nothing about once I had landed. However I could have done before setting off, I was trying to be to clever and promote to many rookies.
I wouldn't hold off too long in base assults. The base assult itself went well with light plasmas and skeleton armour. A previous run was just as good with plasma and titain armour. The game scales but the missions sacle up more (at least in my exp).
