Planning campaign game soon with Van Saar and trying decide which build I going for.
(HoA)

Build 1
Leader, Overseer, Lasgun
Champion, Hip Fire, Melta + Mesh.
2x Champion, Fixer, Plasma Gun.
4x Juves, Lasgun

Build 2
Leader, Overseer, Lasgun + Mesh.
Champion, Hip Fire, Melta + Mesh.
Champion, Fixer, Plasma Gun, Mesh.
Specialists, Plasma Gun, Mesh.
4 X Juves, Lasgun

The only difference between 2 is one has 2x Fixers so more campaign income, but lacking Armour for first battle.

2nd build swaps champ for specialist in order to give out armour early, but lacks the extra fixer so lower income

Thoughts?

N17+ is about heroes, not zeroes. So, two options with identical heroes is actually one option. If that's what you want, flip a coin about the rest.

That said, what's your Leader with Overseer gonna sacrifice both Actions for? Sending your Champ with a Melta off to get killed? That VS Leader is a GREAT shooter. I mean, like twin Plasma Pistols great with Gunfighter. Melta is really expensive and overkill early in the campaign. And, attracts a Click Tactics Card like crazy. But, if you like it, go for it! Everybody loves Plasma Guns. Fixer? For a shooting gang? Umm...

I like the second option far better; 4+ armor saves on a starting gang is pretty great.
I'm not a big fan of Overseer, but it is undeniably effective and goes well with the heavy competitive flavor of the list.
