  1. As other have said, very different roles. Ubers are an actively used killing squad and Morlocks are smoke generators/annoyers. The difference comes from their point cost mainly. Ubers are almost as squishy as morlocks, but nearly 4x the cost, therefor it behooves you to keep them safer if you are just using them for smoke. They are much better used for offensive work, but they will tear through orders. For highly classified you would be much better off with the 3 morlocks in general. If you come up against MSV2, use white noise and your moderator sniper to dislodge the threat.
  2. Rereading over this I took a bit more note that Mage is a long time 40k player coming over to Infinity. On that note, I wouldn't start with a HI link team. Jumping from 40k it won't do what you think you'll want it to do and it's best to avoid the bitter taste right out the gate. Not sure how many actual matches of Infinity you have played yet, but if none use the following 150pt list, proxying in your 40k models for Infinity models. This will give you a taste of how HI feel, high modifier but squishie feel, camo, impetuous etc without overwhelming you. It's also on the cusp of too few orders, so you'll feel to orders pinch a bit. The bit one coming from 40k that you'll learn to love is the doctor. A downed model getting back up is a wonderful feeling. Jurisdictional Command of Bakunin ────────────────────────────────────────────────── 6 3 3 RIOT GRRL Spitfire / Pistol, Knife.

  3. lol I almost never take hackers in Bakunin. The only exception as of late is Switch as a Warcor, but I've tried not to grow too attached to that little glorious bastard. In this list in particular that .5 SWC is much better spent elsewhere. -3 to enemy AD (if they take Combat Jump) or +3 to an already +9 BTS pales in comparison to HMG vs Sniper Sin-Eater. In the current game impetuous in their own pool do plenty. You have two orders each to place smoke for your advance and get to a safe position. Turn two is where they should be hitting the enemy once they have advanced. At that point there is a good chance you have an opening in your main combat group to swap in with a command token. Better yet you have the Taskmaster in this list to swap turn two if you see an opening with an impetuous model. With a 5 shot spitfire riot link and HMG Taskmaster all those orders are better served in group 1 with the heavy hitters. Use group two to screen your advance and intimidate your opponent.
  4. A quick and simple modification will go a long way. See the notes from the guys above. At this point proxy models all the time. Get a feel for what models work for you and which ones don't. Riot Grrls are a lighter heavy Infantry, so you'll have to treat them with a bit more finesse. The Moderator Hacker, while fun, really won't net you much and that .5 SWC is much better served in a sin-eater HMG. While the ranges are slightly nicer with Sniper, the 4 shots vs 2 turn a sin-eater from a pain in the ass to a nightmare. I'd also like to point out that you're jumping right into the deep end with some very complex units. A full link is a lot of rules to swallow. Work with your opponent to make sure you're playing them all correctly. Uberfall are also a very complex unit that, while on paper look OP, are very difficult to play well. Having a 10 order main pool and an irregular secondary pool allows you to focus on tactics while your second pool runs a muck. Once you get more practiced you'll figure out how to use your taskmaster's Free Agent and command tokens to give your second pool more options. In general, you have a lot of self discovery in Infinity to worry too much about the details. Get models on the board and lose some matches so you can get a feel for how you like to play. Try proxying the following to get a feel for the units.

  5. Yes, it is amazing as they were the first to make that jump for a business model of their type. 40k still is not free, and Warmachine just made that jump Aug of last year. Honestly, I would say that the rules PDF, Wiki, and Army Builder as much less of "good business choice" and more of a "they wanted people to enjoy the game". With that mentality came the steady and dramatic growth. Keep in mind that the Wiki and Army Builder are completely volunteer built. It wasn't a "business choice" to invest revenue into software coders to gain an proper return of revenue from models sold. Rather a volunteer said "Hey I have coding experience mind if I make a builder, so people can make lists easier?" and CB responding with "that would be great how can we help you with that?". Were these choices smart? Yes. Were they made to gain profit? No. Putting out an official date on when HS3 was likely decided before the choice to even release book because there is that situation of countries get books faster than others. It's a courtesy to state when they are active because some people will get them in before others. If they didn't care they would jsut expect people to work it out themselves. You seem to be very keen on trying to make it seem that CB doesn't give a damn about their fans and players when anyone that has ever conversed with them would tell you much differently. Honestly, that's one of the most bitter replies I've seen in a while to the point where I really question if you post here to just piss and moan or if you actually enjoy the game. Sadly it's "players" like you that do turn them off from players and the reason why the forums were almost shut down in the first place. /end angry reply
  6. This logic heavily confuses me. People want free stuff and can go through shady means to get free stuff therefor free stuff should be given away immediately. #1. It is amazing that Corvus Belli even gives out the rules for free. This luxury that a lot of people take for granted. They are paying for server hosting and bandwidth to allow you to download free rules, surf a free wiki to help simplify rules searching, and an Army Builder of EXTREME quality. Essentially they give you everything you need to play their game for absolutely free, while paying to do so. Even on top of the cost of development of said rules. #2. People are buying the books because they want the books or fluff. Everyone knows they will give the rules away for free eventually, so purchasing isn't necessary if you don't want to pay. If they want to delay the PDF release till after books arrive, why shouldn't they? That's like being mad because you're friend said he's take you out to a all expenses paid expensive dinner this weekend, but being pissed because he took someone else yesterday. #3. They went out of their way to state that the rules aren't even ITS legal till after pre-orders hit. No everyone plays ITS, but still they are making an official ruling on their legitimacy before buyers get theirs. #4. CB is notorious for self doubt about how well their product will sell. They have to to be. Their profit margins are so slim they are joked about as being a non-profit organization in their town. I can't remember the figure off the top of my head, but when Icestorm was releasing they had and office pool to see how many pre-orders they would sell. Out of the entire office the HIGHEST bet was a fraction of what they actually sold. HS book was likely the same and this may have been a gauging for interest to see how many actual books they need to print. Why didn't they limit the number people could buy? Why should they? At that point they risk not selling them all because again they have slim profit margins and risk having excess inventory that needs to be sold to a vendor or worse yet, shipped back home. To sum it up, yes some people had the opportunity to get the book early. However, jealously is no reason to make demands of a company already doing SOOOOOO much for it's fans and players.
  7. So, what you're complaining about is that you want the free digital rules immediately because someone else was able to buy the book, even though the rules aren't legal till you can buy your book...
  8. Have fun to all those attending! Jealous I won't be able to make it.
  9. Nope guided shot is just a regular shot that doesn't require LoF. It was completely overhauled in N3. "Guided. In Active Turn, this weapon can make a BS Attack against a target in the Targeted state, ignoring LoF and making a BS+6 Roll (This includes the Targeted MOD. Apply no other MODs for Range, Cover, CH: Camouflage, etc.) Resolve the Attack with a Face to Face Roll if it used an Im-pact Template Weapon, or if the target had LoF to the attacker.When using the Guided Trait, the weapon’s B is always 1, ignoring all possible bonuses and Modifiers. The Guided Trait is limited to 5 Attacks per Active Turn. Guided projectiles are Hackable and can be neutralized by ECM."
  10. As IJW said. That model must have reaaaaally pissed you off lol.
  11. Oh and do contribute on topic. Zeros, Sin Eaters, Morlocks, and piles of Remotes. Playing as Corregidor is really hard for me nowadays.
  12. However... at that point cost you're now costing as much as Interventor.... and a Morlock. lol
