Default Light Infantry or Jungle fighters

'ello all
I was wondering what you prefer, Light Infantry, or Jungle fighters.

Light Infantry. I don't play in lots of woods, and infiltrating can get you into the perfect fire spots, which makes it awesome. And Taniths, with cameoline, make it even better.

Light Infantry is far more versatile. You can use the ability in any terrain, and the only disadvantage of it are the points paid for it.

However if you regularly play on a jungle/forest board jungle fighters is terrfying, you can run circles around your opponent and he'll never catch you or even see you.

And as long as your not in combat or hit by flame weapons your troops are really hard to kill.

On the cameloline + light infantry note that's not an option I would use due to the prohibitvely high points cost, unless it was city fight. Having an entire army that can infiltrate/move through cover and has 3+ cover saves in city fight would be amazing!

Definitely light inf. I dont like that jungle fighters drops the armor save even worse than it is already. I do like the heavy flamers, they are so very nice, but overall, Jungle Fighters is too mission-specific seeming for me. Besides, light infantry with cameleoline deployed directly into hard cover with a nasty big heavy weapon will give anybody a headache getting rid of. I don't usually use either, but given the choice, jungle fighters is nowhere near as versatile as the Light Inf. (I guess it would be cool if you have 'home table advantage' and a lot of fishtank plants, but kind of unfair.)

Basicly it boils down to this:
If your playing in extremely(i mean extremely) jungly terrain, get jungle fighters. anything else go with light infantry. personally ive never used jungle fighters and never will, its worthless.

Damn right!
Only if in Catachan you would bother with the Jungle guys, but Light infantry do all the basic jobs...And more.

How about if you just used a single unit of jungle fighters? If you're commanding a shooty army that's stuck on a jungle-heavy board, having a squad of full-speed-moving guys with a heavy flamer might give you a better chance than you'd otherwise have.

Or if you give them a heavy weapon, infiltrate 7" behind the edge of some jungle terrain, and the enemy can't shoot back at you. Completely invulnerable to (non-indirect) shooting - that's even better than cameleoline!
