Matriach- 195 Credits

I do want to make use of toxin and gas in this campaign so keep that in mind for comments.

First ideas for purchases in the campaign is getting a Clan Chemyst for the fixer skill and baked in rules to reduce the chem costs. So any good ideas for chems would be sweet. So far in the needle rifle I am leaning towards a mix of Maddening, Concentrated and Exploding. But I also like the idea of Panicking and paralysing. Give me thoughts for Gas as well although I won't be starting with the capability for it.

Some mesh armour for my specialist and shotgunner. Maybe the others as well.
Ablative overlay for my queen (Don't want to abuse this too much.)
Photon Flash Grenades for Little sister(s)
Telescopic Scope for Needle rifle.
Doc or Ammo goon
Ambot
Hotshot packs
Blade Cage
Choke gas for Grenade launcher
So i would appreciate thoughts on this as well just to see what people think.

I love the idea you are going for.

Personally I'd drop the needle sword from the rifle champ, and pick up smokes for the easier reload on the nade launcher. I'd also invest in chem synth and stim slugg stash for the little sister, make her a proper glass cannon

Yeah the needle sword was the thing I was most throwing up. I definitely want them to have it eventually. But in the starting build it would be possible to use those credits elsewhere. Similar to what you said.

Or even just mesh armour for my two other non lasgun girls.
