So! They are finally released and available on the tables, but what to do with them? How many units so you need and is there a list which get value out of two or even 3 Units??
Obviously Gearhart who turns there utility and dmg to maximum is THE man for them, do you see them under other casters? My first guess would be Syvestro and Lukas (Disintegrate, Cloudwall and IF against blast DMG). Are they worth taking without the Retaliator's or is a module we always should consider. Double CGI lists seem to have big weaknesses like stealth and Armor spam (AC) or will die in Swats against Redeemer's/Judi's without Lukas. What to do when your in Melee? Feels like we need some stuff to clean chaff out of the way? Vulcan, AT's? Merc's under Morely?
I believe 1 max unit + UA + Retaliator will be a package in many lists. It's super solid. Also, I wouldn't consider the package weak into AC. Even Shocks with IF have to look out, since with gearhart they're shooting at effective POW 15 boosted AND a potential to dispel IF, so either dice off 8 or off 6 boosted, and sticking oil on multiple shouldn't be too hard due to shield wall.
Stealth is another issue, though, and I think one that will prevent taking double CGI.

I like the single unit + retaliator package. Throw in caster damage buff and they are taking out heavies with some reliability. With Lukas especially I like to throw in Thorn Gun Mages with Morley since they can benefit from the oil and get up to pow 18 shots.
