Wouldn't that take two turns to complete making it not a yo-yo?

Gorrillanators.

There name implies that they are guerilla units, doesn't it?
They can be extremely effective if you continually move them, especially with the Natika Agents.

Also, the Mohicans will most likely be a guerilla unit also. Most Native American tactics revolve around using thier terrain to thier advantage. I'm not trying to be biased, though. Read The Wilderness Empire and The Frontiersman, both based on real events.

Well, yeah. If you define it that way, then I guess you're right...I still think it's an effective tactic, though.

OM1, move the G-nators and attack. OM2, move the Nakitas into range and attack, then move the G-nators back into adjacency for Smoke Powder...

According to the card, you better do that the other way around or you will not be able to move those 'nators...

Re: Guerilla unit

My vote would be on cyprien because of stealth flying, 8 move, 2 attacks per turn, and life drain which makes cyprien tough to defeat. Just fly in, do some damage to an important opponent's figure, and fly out and feast on some squads.
Also, Q9 can easily take control of any situation just by waltzing in there and crushing your opponent (well not really, strategy is required).
AE are also great at guerilla warfare because of there drop ability and 8 range.

Re: Guerilla unit

When I think of a guerrilla unit, I think of the following characteristics:
- surprise attack
- attack in any location to disrupt the other army
- cheap and expendable

With these characteristics, I think the Rechets are the best guerilla unit. They can hit hard and at a good distance. They are cheap and you won't be that disappointed when they are destroyed. Their downside is that they are unreliable.

The Airborne Elite come close to meeting my guerilla characteristics. Carr (with ghost walk and disengage) comes close too. The Kozuke Samurai would be another possible choice. These other units are more expensive and don't fit as well into my definition.
