  1. As Snozz said said starting off at lower pts level is best i am currently taking part in a escalation league to learn, theres no need to jump into advance rules straight away get the basics down first. In fact a great way to learn if you have anyone else in the area who plays is the operation icestorm or the operation red veil boxes they introduce the game well and give you a idea of the different types of troops you see. As to getting the posthumans they are very good and used by most people who play aleph so you wont regret getting them.
  2. Thanks for the advice Phlyk, i will try that out.

(0 | 4) 2.5 SWC | 197 Points Open in Infinity Army Currently i am thinking about this as a list. I like it at first glance but then worry i haven't got enough bite to deal with anything heavy armoured. SEIZE THE ANTENNAS COLD SLEEP TIC-TAC-TOE QUADRANT CONTROL CAPTURE AND PROTECT FRONTLINE FIREFIGHT THE ARMOURY Playing a mini learning the game league and these are the scenarios that could come up (only playing at 200pts Limited insertion). Is this a decent amount? im still quite a noob at this.
  4. I have been playing infinity for a little while now, mostly vanilla aleph but i want to play more steel phalanx my problem is every list i build feels far to offensive and not enough specialists. Does anyone else have this problem and what do people run as specialists in steel phalanx?
  5. As to where to go people can only give there opinions as Phylk said list building comes down to a lot of personal preference. One thing i can say is infinity is a awesome system that to a certain extent lets players tailor how they want to play in list selection, so the rule of cool works great if you just want a list of awesome looking mini's (the infinity range is full of them). Just a word of caution, there are tones of great characters and cool guys in the faction but there is also a lot of high pt costs. that being said if you want to run a list where Achilles goes on a rampage you can do that (and trust me hes good at it) just remember the rest of the list has to supply the orders and get the objectives done.
  6. Hello all, I am playing in a league using the ITS joint operations scenarios. Due to the high pt cost/SWC of Steal phalanx im struggling to work out how many specialists to have. Most my lists seem to consist of Achilles, Myrmidon link (with hacker and CoC) as a base so i already have 2 specialists, but i tend to think i need at least 4 is this the right way of thinking or could i run with 3?
  7. You can cover yourself with smoke but MSV2 troops such a snipers will pick your team off, eclipse helps but it only takes that 1 shot to get through. that being said if its just for casual play you should be fine.

  9. to be honest i just painted two a few days ago and there going into the dettol tonight as i really wasnt happy with it
  10. Hello all, I am by no means a good painter, average at best i describe myself as. I need help painting my Aleph, like i said im not a great painter but want to do something that fits the style of the studio scheme but not going to use the same colours. Any advice?
  11. Thanks for the advice. If anyone else has any suggestions or pictures of what they use i would love to see them
  12. Is there no model for proxy 2 with assault hacking device? If so what do people use? i feel like proxy 1 hacker would be best but is it better to use the available proxy 2 despite it showing a multi sniper?
  13. Wouldn't say seasoned player (been playing on and off for just over a year) but im happy to share my experiences as i also loved the marut straight away. Just a word of warning make sure you know what you are putting the marut in front of. My last game kinda went terrible when a yan huo with Hyper rapid magnetic cannon took it off the table in one turn.
  14. As Perseus said shotgun on TO makes a lot of fun. I had a game where my Mk2 was basically destroying anything that happened to stray away from other units before recloaking and going hunting again, a lot of fun to be had. that being said the Mk2 sniper is fun to have a long range threat pop up when your opponents not expecting it.
  15. I always find because of the maruts high pt cost you will need to run cheap models so you have the orders to get the most out of the marut, i recommend getting the aleph support pack as it gives you net rods (cheap 4 pt orders pretty much) and the sopahatech which is a engineer tho i might consider using a cheaper one eventually. Also having some myrmidons gives you some smoke cover for the marut that makes it a pain in face to face if the opponent isn't using msv2. Tbh i find with infinity there isn't much that you cant make use of so you can always use the rule of cool but just remember the pts level you are playing at.
