  1. Just wanted to point out that a PH 16 TAG dodging vs a B1 CC27 attack has about a 1% chance of success. Though you're technically right that's infinitely better than 0%, it's still slim enough that most would consider it irrelevant - the TAG would almost guaranteed attack instead of dodge.
  2. Having just caught up on this, let me say that this is awesome! The layers of teasers here are great, and that audio clip was something else (and also totally creepy). Big thanks and congrats to all of the digital sleuthing in this thread. I do feel the need to say, though, that as cool an idea as Infinity busts are, I hope that's not all this leads to. Teasers this intricate beg for a story, so I'm still hoping it's about the manga, or something with the RPG, or at the very least some story development for the setting in general.
  3. I was just noticing that too - the Yu Jing half is 4/7 women. I think my favorite part of that is none of them are super sexified/sexy posing, and it looks like that goes for the Haqq side too. Which I think is great - CB can do really good "attractive but actually here for business" females when they want to, and it looks like this box is a really good example of that.
  4. So has anyone pointed out yet that the Yu Jing group is 4/7 female? Now I'm curious, what's the ratio for the Haqq side? I missed the videos earlier today. In other news, wow. So much awesome! I love pretty much everything about the YJ side. Eager to see the Haqq models next week now - I've got no real interest in them, but I've got great interest in getting a buddy interested so we can split the box.
  5. Exciting times. If it is Zuyong, Hsien, and Tiger (which I agree it looks like) then the YJ half is a definite "Yup" from me! I'll be glad to see new Zhanshi too, though that would make it even less likely my two unpainted current-starter-Zhanshi will ever see a paint brush... Oh well. Can't wait to see more!
  6. Hmm. Nomads have more heavy weapons, but having three HI (one with camo + infiltration) should offset that I think. I like it. :) Thanks!
  7. Hi all! I'm going to be playing a second demo game with a friend of mine and wanted to get some feedback on lists to use. It's been quite a while since I last was introducing someone to the game, so I don't really remember what I did last time, haha. I've played one other demo game with this friend. It was a very simple 3v3 - Shang Ji and 2x Zhanshi (me) vs Mobile Brigada and 2x Alguaciles (him) using essentially the quick start rules. This time we want to play at 150 to allow for a few more models, and I want to introduce the majority of the rest of the basic rules - Lieutenants, guts rolls, some different guns, and maybe command tokens. I also want to introduce a couple of the more common special rules as well (Camo and/or AD being the prime candidates), since they are quite central to Infinity as a whole. Not planning to intro Hacking this time around though, too many options there - especially if he sticks with Nomads! Anyway, here's the lists I've thrown together: Demo 150 ────────────────────────────────────────────────── 6 DÀOFĚI Spitfire / Pistol, Shock CCW. (2 | 55) SHÀNG JÍ Lieutenant Combi Rifle + Light Flamethrower / Pistol, Shock CCW. (0 | 37) TIGER SOLDIER Combi Rifle + Light Flamethrower / Pistol, Knife. (0 | 27) ZHANSHI Combi Rifle / Pistol, Knife. (0 | 11) ZHANSHI Combi Rifle / Pistol, Knife. (0 | 11) KEISOTSU Combi Rifle / Pistol, Knife. (0 | 9) 2 SWC | 150 Points Open in Infinity Army Demo 150 ────────────────────────────────────────────────── 6 MOBILE BRIGADA Lieutenant MULTI Rifle + Light Flamethrower / Pistol, Knife. (0 | 39) INTRUDER HMG, Grenades / Pistol, CCW. (1.5 | 42) SPEKTR Boarding Shotgun, Antipersonnel Mines / Pistol, Knife. (0 | 30) ZERO (Minelayer) Combi Rifle, Antipersonnel Mines / Pistol, Knife. (0.5 | 19) ALGUACIL Combi Rifle / Pistol, Knife. (0 | 10) ALGUACIL Combi Rifle / Pistol, Knife. (0 | 10) 2 SWC | 150 Points Open in Infinity Army My potential concerns: I'm probably really bad at making Nomad lists, seeing as I've never actually played against them. Does it do a decent job of showcasing the faction? Are there some other models which would do that job better? I fully realize that keeping Hacking out removes a big part of the appeal of Nomads, but I don't want to overload the guy with option paralysis. Not introducing hackers would also mean not introducing remotes, which Nomads also have good options for. Is it too early to introduce camo heavy hitters like the Daofei and Intruder? My gut says yes, but on the other hand I want to include a couple of the "really fun" models to give him a taste. I'm probably giving in to my love of camo HI too much, heh. Along the same lines, I'm feeling that having a single heavy weapon on each side is going to weight the game too much towards those two models. Yeah, probably need to replace the Daofei and Intruder with something else ... or at least downgrade them to basic guns and give the heavy weapons to someone else. Too heavy on the special rules? If this is his first game with camo/AD, should I follow the Icestorm precedent a bit closer (a single camo model on one side, and a single AD on the other)? My other list idea was to basically copy the Nomad half of the Icestorm box and put together a Yu Jing equivalent: Demo 150 ────────────────────────────────────────────────── 6 MOBILE BRIGADA MULTI Rifle + Light Flamethrower / Pistol, Knife. (0 | 39) GRENZER MULTI Sniper Rifle / Pistol, Breaker Pistol, Knife. (1.5 | 32) SPEKTR Combi Rifle, Antipersonnel Mines / Pistol, Knife. (0 | 31) ALGUACIL Combi Rifle / Pistol, Knife. (0 | 10) ALGUACIL Combi Rifle / Pistol, Knife. (0 | 10) ALGUACIL Combi Rifle / Pistol, Knife. (0 | 10) 1.5 SWC | 132 Points Open in Infinity Army 18 points and 1.5 SWC left - any suggestions? A plain Zero is 18 points, not sure other than that ... I'd like to have one more special gun in there. Yu Jing Icestorm equivalent: Yu Jing ────────────────────────────────────────────────── 6 SHÀNG JÍ Combi Rifle + Light Flamethrower / Pistol, Shock CCW. (0 | 37) RAIDEN (Minelayer, X Visor) Heavy Rocket Launcher, Antipersonnel Mines / Pistol, Knife. (1.5 | 21) TIGER SOLDIER Combi Rifle + Light Flamethrower / Pistol, Knife. (0 | 27) ZHANSHI Combi Rifle / Pistol, Knife. (0 | 11) ZHANSHI Combi Rifle / Pistol, Knife. (0 | 11) ZHANSHI Combi Rifle / Pistol, Knife. (0 | 11) 1.5 SWC | 118 Points Open in Infinity Army 32 points and 1.5 SWC left. Maybe a Domaru or Zu-Yong to show off the HI? Raiden is being the Nyss-alike, though maybe a Bao would be better? If I go that route I've only got 24 points left, which pretty much eliminates all the HI options, so ... Guilang with shotgun maybe, as an equivalent to a Zero in his list? Any thoughts, criticisms, and comments welcome - fire away. Any advice is appreciated!
  8. I believe they draw inspiration from the classic Chinese queue/cue hair style. I haven't seen any fluff that talks about them though, so no idea if they serve a practical purpose of some kind.
  9. I need to point out that Courage doesn't have the downside you are implying. Courage lets you choose the outcome of a Guts check without rolling, it doesn't force you to stand your ground.
  10. Falling Unconscious due to Biolocator is not a prerequisite, you merely fall Unconscious as a result of the skill. IMO it would still work fine if you took a wound from an ARO during that order. At the end of the order, the Kuang Shi then falls Unconscious (no change). Then you may target the Unconscious user of Biolocator as though they had been hit by a FO.
  11. I don't think he meant in relation to the control device, just in general. In which case he's correct - Dogged gives you an easy way to avoid blowing your own troops up if the Kuang Shi takes a wound in the wrong position.
  12. Occasionally. I think most often it's the addition of profiles - a unit gaining a missile launcher option, for example. Which is unlikely in this case. It's not unimaginable for them to add some equipment or skills though. Occasionally. I think most often it's the addition of profiles - a unit gaining a missile launcher option, for example.

  13. Seconding this!
  14. Just download WinRAR (or I think 7zip can handle .rar too). 2 minutes and you're in golden .rar-opening glory.
  15. Thank you, I thought everyone was crazy too. That was my first thought as well. Part of me wonders if it might be one of the ARM 4 HI (Shang Ji, Dao Fei, etc.), but the Zu Yong and Sun Tze both don't have that bracer design. So yeah, probably Hac Tao, which is perfectly fine by me! Also, really great painting as always, huanglong!
