Here is where to post the hilarious incidents and accidents that go down during missions.

I'll start.

Artefact site-took over a tasoth with MC, aquatoid fires a stun launcher, misses, two tentaculat slime over to attack, after a sonic pulser comes at the tasoth from somewhere unseen. Aquatoid approaches, after the grenade lands at the now dead tasoth's feet.

Turn ends. Tentaculats, aquatoid etc. end up getting reduced to pink mist by the pulser going off right underneath one of the tentaculats, saving me the ammo it would cost to take them apart piece by piece (and good riddance  too, I hate tentaculats, although of course, who doesn't :P)

You first. Whats next? taking it out on a leash? a collar with a bell on it and calling it 'mittens'? (not so sure that would work anyway, since don't you need to have a neck first:P.

Don't be silly. Bells don't work underwater. Or at least not very well. ;)

Is that an NKF original work of art? Nice! Haven't seen one of those in a while! Posted Image

A few dozen make a better case for refining that third decimal place.
They call me Zombie because I don't sleep, as I slowly struggle to climb this heap,
of corpses, data points, and trials, but from the top - I'll see for miles!

Actually, mind-controlled Tentaculats make good scouts. Lots of TU, high Reactions, and if they get killed you won't be shedding any tears. Just make sure you keep them in range to re-establish control the next round.

I know. I MC them as soon as they get within sight, and have a tank follow them as an escort usually, hovering off ground level to avoid any incoming grenades. TFTD aliens seem a lot more grenade-happy than in UFO.

Either they get MC'ed and used as scouts, or else in places like artefact sites where the synomium device is and there are all those little brain-sucking bastards present then one gets MC'ed to scout for the rest. MC-ing each of them to line them up, and keep them immobilized, bar one, to get to the one on the middle level of the elevator shaft in that small chamber with the alien tech of some kind in there, and that one brought down, keeping a tasoth on ground level to repeatedly spot them before bringing them all together and calling in a DPL strike to splatter the lot of them into greasy smears of flash-boiled brain matter against the most convenient wall.
