  1. There is the coat snipershot explained. Nice! Dao fei of any kind in the new scale is super welcome. Though I don't get people complaining it should be a spitfire. I want a hacker thanks. Way better for ITS
  2. They are assessing it. Doesn't mean they are acting on those assessments Serriously though, if these come out as listed and represent reaculpts that will be pretty cool. But I feel certain that the distributor here mixed up the preorders. I mean, since we are just now getting spoilers for these I doubt that that they were even supposed to post this right now and are probably due some angry Bostria in the morning. Also: I think I know what the yellow and back model we saw sniper shotted is now... So lets look at these again yeah? I think we can match a lot probably
  3. Dry land is not a myth etc etc. So Varuna would be awesome as much as I dream of the never-gonna-happen shasvastii vs kazak box. But I am suprised if this is another starter box with pan O. What @Solar says makes sense: it could be a "next step" box that model works across the industry. But @Solar , or anyone else for that matter, are we speculating that this is "both" a new 2 player box AND consists of things players would want if they had ice storm already? That would be really weird since most 2 player sets are a loss-leader that is, something the company sells at minimal profit to spur future purchases. It would be weird to want to do that with multiple boxes for the same factions.
  4. I think that is a fantastic idea, and had I the time I would do it. It would be cool to have a spread sheet of the picture, when it was shown, and what it turned out to be. I am certain there are some over the year or so they have been doing this that have never been released and it would be cool to see what they are. That is especially true as we see 3d model asets reused so that we can better tell what we are looking at.
  5. Not a nomads player but since I am loitering here... Welcome to the game! My advice would be to include at least one of the models with Visor from your boxes (the Grenzer or the Riot girl) as well as one model with Camoflague (the spekter but you could proxy him as a zero) then round out with the Alguaciles and moderators. I would stick to no more than one or two morlocs for your first games. My reasoning is as follows: MSV or Visor is an essential peice of equipment for dealing with enemy camoflague models or models with the skill ODD or Minimitism. Enemies with these skills reduce your chance to hit unless you have a visor. Additionally, camo models start as tokens and you need to discover them befoee you can even attack them. Visor helps with that as well. As for Camo, the Spektor will give you some experience with running your own marker and how to place them or when to reveal them, all essential skills to any infinity faction. Finally, on the morlocks, they are Ireggular which means that you can only use the order they provide on themselves. Too many can deny you valuble orders for your other troops. They are also impetuous, which helps to get used to a bit at a time, since it is a strange abillity, but powerful once you learn to use it. (And bakunin can use it very well) Finally, dont be afraid to try new things, ideally something new every game. Infinity is a game of information overload and many conflicting choices. Getting a feel for all the things you can do will help develope your play style, which in turn will determine what you buy going forward. Oh, and proxy lots. Its very helpful. Something like this maybe: Nomads ────────────────────────────────────────────────── 8 1 1 ALGUACIL Paramedic (MediKit) Combi Rifle / Pistol, Knife.

  7. Bring the T-drone if you have a dedicated guided missle list (say onyx with a malignos FO and 5 strong linked FO batroid). Bring the Haiduk for versatility. You can pop him behind cover if you are facing long range visor threats and clear with guided shots, or you can put him to watch a long board edge where he wont get into trouble, or if your opponent doesnt have a good answer you can take that vantage point and stare down the board, or some combination of all of them. Many CA units are versatile, and he fits that catagory. Plus points wise he is a bargain.
  8. Is there a chance that several of these shots are the same model? Check out the yellow shin band on pic 3 and 5. Inside and outside of coat on pic 1 and 4? These 4 could all be part of an ITS model, a merc of some kind. The last pic (nomad base with ammo crate) was noted to likely be a 40mm base. My bet is Taskmaster. Have you been reading my erotic dream journal @TDC ? Because this box pairing is basically about half the entries in it. More importantly : is there a source for that?
  9. Excited to see the fighters! Point by point: Maximus: werid combo of chunk and beauty. Idk what to think. Parvati: is going to also be my mk5 proxy. No insult to the real model, its boss, but I like the weird techno alien look to her better. 8-ball: the best morlock Cat girl : the best daktari Hexxer: the best custodier Three bakunik models to start me dowm that dark path. Wild bill: I would say *cough cough* ocelot *cough* but thats because that MGS character just looks like the historic wild bill, so... cool? Mushashi: feel like hellboy fighting kriegaffen 9 shouting "you made another one!?" I am very suprised at this. Cool model though. Lunah: see above. So awesome models all around, but god I hope they are the same scalr. Still very hopeful for the rules too, but at this point models would be reason enough to buy the game. Again, hoping they are to scale...
  10. I don't think ladder size has ever come up before. I don't know that I would care, but I could see people limiting it to S2 or smaller. You could also make the rungs larger by skipping a few squares to the side and cutting out larger peices. It would increace the work a little but get the wider gague to fit the wider base. I look forward to hearing how the tower works out
  11. Looking good! Sorry for any language barrier, but here is what I meant for the ladders: There is a description below the photo for more info but the 4 shots explain it pretty well. Another option that you could do (because you have wooden pieces) is to attach large staples to the terrain like rungs of a ladder inset to the wall (like in a bunker or industrial site). That can look very cool with a little work. Excited to see your slums coming together! Please be sure to post a shot of the table in action during a game. I would like to see it.
  12. Definitely easier, but helping people is good? Also programs to help the folks on the bottom can pay out results economy wide, and i lile the idea of double dipping (ie fixing fish problem and hunger problems at the same time ) Same, gefiltefish is awesome, except I grew up eating it. My parents exposed us to all kinds of rando foods and bougt the ones we asked for. Gifeltefish, kippers, and pickeled hering were my favorites growing up. And I still love Gifeltefish and anything salty, sour, or fermented.
  13. @The Looper do you know how to make macrame grid (also called "granny grate") ladders? They are durable, cost a few cents, and would look good on your terrain. The ladders you have a cool because of the abillity to placs models, but I dislike them because they are easy to break.
  14. Doing social and environmental good while promoting local industry? That's just un-American... Serriously though, market forces are a problem (carp sells for around €0.30 a kilo) so it's hard to move and the main markets for it (China) offer less than stellar return given the expences. Government funded programs are subsidizing it at the moment but that cant last forever, especially given the current admin's strategy which is something like "why buy oil for my Car's engine? Total waste of money!" There are some pilot programs to turn it into food for low income folks. I certainly hope they continue and make a market. I am in the NW where we dont have the carp problem yet, but it is among the myriad things that keep me up at night.
  15. 35 is a perfect age. All the coolest people are 35. But I digress... and will further by way of explanation : So i asked a guy at the cheese counter of my local grocery store which cheese would be best to pair with swiss for making fondue, you know, cus I had never made it before and dreamed of eating nothing but cheese, wine, and carbs without shame. And the dude behind the counter says: "If you dont know what kind of cheese to get you shouldn't even be trying to make fondue, you should just stick to the mix stuff." To which I think "but, then I'll never learn how to make it?" So yeah, that sucked but what I am really talking about here is why I did not learn 40k seventh edition and get back into the game. I had essentially the same experience with a few local players: "you dont own the rulebook so I wont tell you how the rules work. Just buy it." So anyway, hope that isnt there in 8th and maybe Inwill play it again. Or necromunda. Thats still fine.
