  1. Damn, I'm excited about this release lineup. The past two months have been so-so for me. Looking forward to seeing everything this month.
  2. Time for a small update. Here is a Tuareg Sniper. The model's face and shoulder were somewhat ruined from glue, as this one is a real bitch to assemble (as I'm sure many of you know). I am happy with the highlighting and texture on the coat and the blue pattern. Overall, I feel somewhat disappointed with the final result, but pleased with some of the individual parts.
  3. the generic chain colt model we already have is listed as having a boarding shotgun for some reason. And I’m pretty sure this new one is wearing hacking goggles. It must be meant to represent the hacker / mad traps model. But also you could give the madtraps to the chain colt guy and run this new one as a hacker. It’s win win win. All bases covered .
  4. I think the Gui Jia scales correctly to the pilot, and the location of where the people sit in TAGs and power armor are considerd in the designs. This was clearly shown with the Azrail I think. Why are you guys assuming they are much bigger? They already have guns the same size as an entire human... Edit: you might also wanna look at the manga. There is some good artwork depicting one character in her TAG, as well as TAGs fighting next to humans. I think TAGs are not so big as some of you think, they aren't meant to be Tanks or vehicles, they are on the infantry side of things, no?
  5. Nah, the new avatar is really uninspired. It looks like any generic, scary alien bruiser. I think it should have more of an intellectual or strategic pose. Instead, it looks like a mindless brute. The old sculpt is pretty unique. I still like the new sculpt better, but it just strikes me as a bit bland. Cool, but maybe a wasted opportunity.
  6. My initial impressions are that the Cube Jager is terrible. But, its a fairly cheap specialist that can drop in from the side of the table. Could be useful in some situations, maybe.
  7. I have the same bases which i bought for my ariadna. You've done a great job with both bases and minis, though the bases are making me say "damn, how do I do that?" haha. The police decals are a nice touch. Really cool custom paint job on these guys and girls.
  8. Your plog is always very interesting to check! Your effort really shows and I love seeing your updates. Keep at it.
  9. Great job, makes me want to paint mine!
  10. I think I know the name of every single human unit in the game, and most of Tohaa and Combined army. But I may not know how to pronounce some of them. Luckily I can speak chinese, otherwise the chinese yu jing ones have got to be the worst. Hsien, Zu Yong, Zhan shi, Zhan ying, Yan Huo, Gui Jia, Su Jian. Good luck soldiers. Bonus quick tip for chinese to english pronunciation: Zh sounds similar to J. Zhan sounds like Jan (uary). Its close enough for infinity anyway. Now please explain arabic to me.
  11. Let's be honest though, you can paint a mini to an acceptable level in just 1 or 2 hours. I like @Section 9's comment. All I ask for is progress. My painting rate is about 1.5 minis a month, spending about 4 hours per mini. I aim to fully paint a 300 pt list for all my factions, which is generally how I choose which models to paint. However, If I only play 100 % painted armies then I can't play my Yu Jing, Nomads, Tohaa (oh god, they are far down the "to do" list). so, I find a middle ground is the best approach here. Painted armies are better for everyone, but at the end of the day we all meet up to play a game, so let's be friendly and enjoy it. Meanwhile, you better be plugging away at it you assholes!
  12. I haven't noticed any issues with the models themselves. The choice of weapons annoys me for the Dao Fei and Guilang , though. But at least yu jing didn't get a bolt paramedic. I wish CB would stop trying to sell prefab 300 pt lists. Making a list and choosing which models to buy is a big part of the fun, in my oppinion.
  13. I also noticed the similarities. Makes sense though, being some of the most sinister human troops there are with menacing poses and long flowing coats.
  14. Their pricing is all over the place to be honest, and it seems to really come down to how much metal is being used + incremental price increases over time. I don't think there is anything shady going on. Just looking at the nomads page on CB's online store, it's interesting to see how Riot Girls are more expensive than the Mobile Brigada box, and Moderators are cheaper than Alguaciles and Jaguars. Another funny comparison is the Bandit Hacker and Shotgun Reverend Healer. 10.25 vs 11.95 I can only assume it comes directly from materials / production costs. pretty interesting. I think CB is trying to keep prices as reasonable as possible for the type of business they run. However, something that would really help consumers would be trimming the fat. and by that I mean kill all the tin bots with fire. those little bastards are driving up prices left and right, and replacing my precious heavy infantry! Get the avatar to stomp on a pile of tinbots.
