Hi All,
I've been away from the hobby for a long time so I thought I would dip my toe with some Necromunda.
I got the basic box + the extra guns and here is the list I am thinking of assembling:

Master of Shadows - Flechette Pistol, Web Gauntlet, Photo Goggles, Mesh - Overseer

Phantom - Plasma Gun, Auto pistol, Mesh, Photo Goggles - Overwatch

Phantom - Shotgun, Auto pistol, Mesh, Photo Goggles - Ballistic Specialist

Ghost - Long Rifle, Infra Sight

Ghost - Lasgun, Stun Grenade
Ghost - Lasgun
Ghost - Lasgun

Shadow - Stub Gun, Smoke Grenade
Shadow - Stub Gun, Smoke Grenade
Shadow - Web Pistol

9 Activations, reliable accuracy for pinning and smoke to feel like I am playing Delaque - Hoping the plasma gun, web pistol, Shotgun and Long Rifle are enough firepower. I am also thinking about reworking the leader to be either a plasma pistol or a long rifle +infra-sight. I am not sure how much importance a melee option is here. Also, does this look like a fun/interesting list to play?
 
List is fine, id question Overseer as your essentially sacrificing your leaders activations so your plasma gun can fire twice, better off giving him a different skill and saving for a plasma gun so you can fire twice from two different places on the table.

Its very much a sit back and shoot list, it will get beat by Van Saar because they do the same thing better but may have teeth against other more hybrid gangs.

Id consider dropping some grenades and sidearms to try bring a Nacht-Ghul to the table (move the shotgun onto a ganger and replace the second phantom). The mind games those models let you play with your opponent is worth the price alone, if you don't have the model a pistol/knife model could easily stand in as a "counts as", unless your group is really funny about having exact models.

Thanks for the reply!
I know the nacht ghoul is the most amazing thing in the list but i really prefer having a model for my fighters so am going to go it without...
We are all just buying our first gangs / figures in some cases, so we arent a hardcore group.

Phantom - Plasma Gun, Auto pistol, Mesh, Photo Goggles - Overwatch

Phantom - Long Rifle, Infra Sight - Overwatch

Ghost - Long Rifle, Infra Sight
