Related tangent: while hardly scientific or mathy, I did post on PP's forum if the RQ folks were going to find homes in any army lists. Got two responses so far:
The ones we've seen so far seem interesting rather than particularly powerful. Some of them may have a role in some armies (such as Bella in a Talion army), but most of them don't give me the feeling that I need to get them into my armies at the expense of something that has been established to be strong.
One exception to this is probably Widget in Irregulars. Having a decent Repair model who is highly mobile and also has Ancillary Attack for a lowly cost of three points feels like a real bargain. She is surprisingly strong at whacking with her wrench, too, and her high SPD lets her grab flags or similar in late game.
I've only used Dreyfus so far, and he has the benefit of being free in Storm Division. He didn't do much, but I faced one list that shot him off the table and another that kept him from getting to a target. I want to try him more with, say, Stryker2 where he can really bring some pain.
I have a few concepts with Eiryss4 as well, since I like the idea of extra mobility for Kaelyssa, Garryth (mostly 2), or random strike force models. Plus with Ossyan's feat Fortune Hunter is scary.
J.A.I.M.S. is a pretty good solo hunter for CoC, so that helps them too.
Bamfist is a decent supporter for Mercs, if you're running 'jacks in Irregulars or Hammer Strike. (Empower is good!)
I feel like the ones with Partisan (or straight Faction like Dreyfus) are slightly stronger in that regard, though, since they don't waste the merc slot and are usually free.
