  1. Finally getting back into this game and playing more, which hopefully means more battle reports! As always, need more/better pictures. Hope you enjoy! I had originally had a list of all the batreps here, but it was getting a little long/un-maintainable. Here's a link to the full list on my blog which is automatically kept up to date: https://www.mercrecon.net/tag/InfinityAAR/ Thanks for stopping by! Original Batrep from the first post: Arachne Update: JSA Biker Gang Repelled Armies: Nomads versus Japanese Sectorial Army (300) Mission: ITS Supplies
  2. I went through and found out how many female miniatures there were for each army. I was just curious about this and I thought I would share what I found. I included old models just not bootleg versions. The list goes in order from greatest to least. Nomads 56 Haqqislam 44 Yu jing 33 Ariadna 32 Panoceania 31 Aleph 20 Tohaa 13 Mercs 12 Combined 11 Doesn't really mean anything I just thought it would be neat to know.
  3. Hi everybody, After having an Infinity break for several years I came back and started a new faction: The jurisdictional command of Corregidor. It was the lovely sculpts of the Geckos and the Intruders that brought me here. But I wanted a darker colour scheme than the usual bright (and a bit nerdy) Nomads. I thought in a dystopian future, where interplanetary companies would own nearly everything of society, even police work would be outsourced. So a criminal case would be handled by contractors. So I thought about small police faction run by a company sourced out of Corregidor. I always loved the future vision of Ghost in the Shells Hong Kong and recently I enjoyed Deus Ex: Mankind Divided. Both are my main inspirations for building these guys and a gaming board later on. So here are my first finished miniatures: And a small conversation from an old Ahl Fassed to a Nomad HI with HMG as a pilot for my Iguana: Thanks for reading.
  4. Hi all, just getting in to Infinity with the Operation Icestorm starter and working through the scenarios and excited to get into the game! I'm really liking the positioning tactics. Here are the results of my first bit of painting. (more notes on my choices)
  5. Hi guys. It's been few years since I painted any miniature but now I decided to get back to it and, most importantly, to start working on an idea I had ever since I discovered Infinity. Beeig a long-time sci-fi modeller obsessed with putting LEDs inside everything and a package arriving today containing dozens of SMD LEDs, here are my first attempts today. First some blending exercise to get back to it: Now for those who wonder what SMDs are: And the first lightning test (drilled holes are huge and nasty, hopefully that gets better with practice, I broke like a dozen of drills today):
  6. Well, since Photobucket went straight to a null state, time to start rebuilding photo uploads. Recently, I got a new photo box and started greatly to appreciate how much this helps both taking model pictures, and inspecting your own models for how things are looking while painting. So may as well give it a test with an army shot. Some salvaged pics from before:
  7. I while ago – in April – I started the HEADForce, the Human Edge Armed Defense Force for the Nomads. One of the reasons was the new starter box for Bakunin as well as the Moderator box, but I also wanted to develop a new color scheme. Inspired by many artworks I found on the net, I for one wanted a more "realistic" theme but without forgoing high visibility on the game table. I took some experiments, but eventually I was satisfied. First troop I painted was this one: Please excuse me for the gap in side of the base, I will fix this in the future This is the my color scheme for the Moderators – please excuse me again that the base is not finished. Our Infinity Group here in Hannover started a new escalation league, and I participate with my new Nomads. So I have to finish some other minis for the games, the bases will follow soon. I was strongly inspired by the series The Expanse, so I tried some tattoos in the Expanse style
  8. I'm finding it hard to actually win with the nomads, who are my main faction. I don't think its my list, I feel its more my playstyle. my main adversary is a vanilla pano player who runs several snipers with msv, and several hi knights. the last game he also brought a tr drone that wrecked my flank. (my bad) some can be chalked off to poor dice rolls, but I don't feel I have a strong grasp in the first place.. to make matters worse, we started playing at the same time (split icestorm) and I play more often than he does. when you guys play nomads what how do you build your lists? per opponent? per scenario? per classifieds? i think i need to set up a repeater network for white noise and aro against the hi. immobilize and shoot them maybe? and what tips would any of you have for dealing with the disgusting pano? I have learned the hard way, I'm not outshooting them, even with two intruder hmg's. i deleted my list, but from memory this is the core that I ran interventor lt tomcat doctor hellcat spitfire 2 intruder hmg 4 jaguars 2 alguicils 2 zeros specter moran
  9. Is anyone else really excited for Tunguska? I'm really excited. I finally got the majority of my Icestorm models together, and I've been playing the scenarios with a coworker occasionally over lunch. Then I saw Beyond Icestorm announced, and the Kriza Borac profile. No sooner had I seen it, than the words, "that's my lieutenant," crossed my mind. Full Auto L2 is asking for the Lieutenant order. And suddenly I realized that Icestorm also came with both the Spektr and Grenzer as Tunguska buddies! Also, I've come to really like the Grenzer (at least on paper, it's in our next scenario). It has a solid profile, and well-rounded for special rules and equipment. It has V: Courage, so if anything it is reliable! Plus the Combi comes with an LFT, and every profile has a breaker pistol. Granted, I have no experience with the breaker pistol, but it seems like something that's nice to have on the off chance he sneaks up on an ORC or other profile with ARM > BTS, and you'd also want to shoot it with a pistol. Do you guys like your Grenzers? I really like mine. Kinda tempted to snip the barrel, but if Tunguska comes out sooner than later, I might regret that decision. EDIT: If there was one profile I could give to the Grenzer, it would be a hacking profile. Actually, I wouldn't mind a Killer Hacker on the Spektr, too, if we're handing out hacking devices.
  10. Write up of my last game of the summer - Pulpibeer Fest! https://redheadhobbies.wordpress.com/2017/09/01/pulpibeer-fest/
  11. Hi, Today let me show you a photo of my full ava Corregidor heavy support. @Nazroth I once again thank you very much for wonderful Geco conversions!. Iguana + operator 4 Different Gecos 5 Mobilie Brigadas 1 Limited bounty hunter wchich I use as 6th Mobilie brigada aka Mexican General.
  12. Hi there, decided to finally sign up and start to contribute, as I'm lurking the forums for news, tactics and painted minis for quite a while now While I'm not totally new to the hobby (played & painted some GW LotR, collecting single minis from different manufacturers and genres), I would say I'm quite a noob when it comes to infinity. What dragged me in is the awesome artwork and lovely miniature range which I stumbled upon watching YouTube videos. I guess it was Corvus Miniatures that pulled the trigger. So I first started with collecting some of the miniatures which I liked the most: OP:I first, then some single minis from pretty much all the factions (except CA and USAriadna). First mini I painted was the Mobile Brigada, absolutely awesome sculpt. After reading more and more I thought this game might actually be fun, lol! So I began to collect, build and paint some terrain as well. Bought an airbrush, wanted to throw it away after the first results, read tutorials, bought some more terrain (lol)... After months of hard labour I finally had a table worth playing on, with the OP:I minis fully painted to my "minimum painting standard", invited a friend over to play my first session of infinity (introductory missions of OP:I). That was in January... In the meantime I actually slowed down with buying more minis, meaning I didn't buy every new mini that came out (lol). Now I'm buidling up my Yu Jing force (Imperial Service ftw!) to start having a real game of infinity sometime. tl,dr: I painted some minis: My first infinity miniature, I was actually quite pleased once I finished him. Now I'm thinking about adding more detail, re-do his gun etc. PanO:
  13. So, as time goes by, the gaming experience changes. i have the impression that about Bakunin is still good enough, since 1) not really much changed in Bakunin and 2) my own playstyle matched what N3 now is more than it was in N2 ... but i still think it can get some overhaul. i have a pretty busy time at the moment in my life, so i will not take a full attempt to rewrite this thread until at least the midst of march 2015. so until then, we can have a discussion about the units, what i wrote back then, and how we think about it now. please post any indeas/opinions. but to get this a bit sorted, lets start with Bakunin in general. what are the strenghts of Bakunin ? what are its weaknesses ? how do we get better options than vanilla ? which playstyles do you prefer ? what are your ways to play Bakunin ? EDIT: Here the actual Guide (i will edit new articles in here now and then): Bakunin in General --- Moderators from Bakunin --- Reverend Morias --- Reverend Custodiers --- Reverend Healers --- Sin-Eater Observants --- Prowlers --- Riot Grrls --- Lizard Squadron Treehouses thoughts: --- Zeros --- Der Morlock Gruppe --- Bakunin Uberfallkommando --- Reverend Superior Cassandra Kusanagi --- Bran Do Castro, Triple Zero --- Zoe and Pi-Well Treehouses opinion on this: --- Avicenna Treehouses ans Icchans thoughts: --- Tsyklon Sputnik Lunokhod Sputnik --- Stempler Zond Reaktion Zond Vertigo Zond Meteor Zond Transductor Zond Treehouses thougts: Salyut Zonds --- Clockmakers Treehouses rewrite: --- Daktaris Treehouses opinion on this unit: as requested in another thread i will try to not only update this thread as time goes on, but also try to post some lists. i normally do not like luist postings and their discussions, since often players post lists without their own thoughts about them, and without knowing how their playstyle is there is n way for me to have "right" comments ... i do not have any direction in which the player wants to go, and as long as one knows how to use the units, there is no real "wrong". but some players seem to struggle with this knowledge of in-built tactics, the direction a list gets you to play in Bakunin. also we have many strengths and abilities to which hard counters exist, like ODD and Camo, so we always have to plan to have a way to counter these counters. pretty meta, eh ? so, i want to give some examples of how i would play some tournament lists with setting certain themes. these themes will be using some assets in the Bakunin sectorial list which you could not do in Vanilla, so for example exceeding the Vanilla AVA or using Link teams. of course i am happy to get comments on how other players would change these lists to suit their playstyle and on how i could use the list more effective, if i forget some thoughts i could use on the battlefield. so on to the first example. 3 SinEaters was my intention. first the list, then my thoughts,
  14. I'm sure some of you guys have heard of tabletop simulator. For those of your who haven't it is a pretty great little tool to play just about any tabletop game out there for free or close to free on steam. Recently I've been using it to play Infinity and it's been pretty great! It's allowed me to try new army lists, new factions and all kinds of terrain setups. I wouldn't of known how much I enjoyed Ariadna without being able to try out their various sectorials in Tabletop Simulator. I've gone from playing infinity every once in awhile to getting almost 20 games in in the last week and a half. One of the only downsides for the moment is that you are gona have to proxy some units. You are going to have to use some units as other units until the models for the various different armies actually come out. That being said it's easy to do since you can just change the name of the model and give it a description while playing and I am currently looking into making models for the various different factions. I would highly recommend getting tabletop simulator if you have a couple of friends to try it out with. It's been a great help to me and has shown me that I might need to get a few more Ariadna miniatures in the near future.
  15. So we finally have some miniatures other than the one for operation icestorm in tabletop simulator. This video here will show you how to get involved in all this nonsense. IF you look on the page for the mod you will see the discord server link. This video took way more effort and way more takes than it should of. If you stick to the end there is a really stupid joke that I think only the military order's players will enjoy. What faction would you like to see added or what miniatures would you really like to see here?
  16. I use bran do, and I also use lupe balboa. but they don't seem to have the staying power, or raw damage output as, say Achilles, or joan. who is your favorite solo unit in nomads(vanilla or sectorial)

I have a bad habit of changing stuff after every game, win or loss. I wold like to get a few hellcats in. Or Get more repeater coverage. I run an intruder/jaguar on either side as needed. some cons: no doktari vertigo is situational, but oh so nice when something gets targeted. I'm not very good with hacking yet, and don't use the interventors full potential. Thoughts?
  18. Going to be starting a Nomads cosplay, and I'm considering either a Bandit Killer Hacker or a Sin-Eater w/ HMG. Starting to get a material list for both. Also have a friend who is trying to get a female Hexa hacker worked up so I'm a bit torn. I think my build would fit a Sin-Eater better as they appear taller and I'm 6'4", but a Bandit and Hexa hacking each other may be sick. Starting to draft up the designs for the HMG now, but would love to hear what people would think would be cooler to see.
  19. I bought the Infinity Rulebook and a load of Nomads back when they came out, something like 2005? or so. Now, 8 years later I finally managed to get some friends interested in it, and had my first 2 games! 8 years, that's not too bad a lead in I guess. Knew it'd happen eventually! Most of my gaming has been with 40k, though I've fallen out of favour with it in the past few years, as well as Malifaux, Anima Tactics, various skirmish games and so forth. Infinity is good fun, and watching a mine blow up half a link team was very enjoyable to be sure... With the prospect of more actual games I started to convert and paint up some models, as well as retouching an old Zero. I figured I'd go with a traditional black and red since that seems to go with a lot of things, though I tend to paint fairly dark schemes anyway. Here's my first 2 'Zeros'. I liked the look of the Bagh Mari armour, so did a simple intruder arm swap for one side and filed down the head and resculpted the sides. He'll likely also be used as a Prowler or Wildcat proxy, or maybe a Spec Ops. The normal Zero is unfortunately missing his gun. With such a long time with no Infinity games, I removed it to use him in Necromunda as a Spyrer, but with him repurposed back to Infinity the lack of (huge) gun seems to help him keep a low profile... Next up is the Lunokhod. He was a tad bit brighter, but a fun matt varnish incident neccessitated another dark wash to hide all the marks which made it a bit flatter than I'd like, but he certainly does his job with the flamethrower. Turns out, it werfs flammen quite nicely. The red in the second picture is a bit oversaturated, it's about in between the two pics. I get the feeling I should also add more detail to the base, it's looking somewhat bland. Maybe some brown weathering powders? We're also somewhat lacking in terrain so I had to root around for materials to use. I ended up finding a large stack of glass dessert ramekins. With a black spray, olive green spray and some stippling, it was turned in to this, which breaks up los nicely for low level terrain at least. Now I just have lots to paint up... I have a good chunk of the Nomads faction in various stages of assembly buried within the lead mountain. A couple of the 'newer' models have caught my eye too, namely the Iguana, Uberfurrieskommando and so forth. This... could take a while. Also a mini rant - my Lunokhod scooted up the flank in the first game, swung round a building and flamed a full link team who all failed to dodge. They were some Ariadnans with arm 3 so they had about a 50/50-ish chance for saves. All passed. I flamed them again and they elected to shoot and 3 passed their saves. I only managed to kill 2 blasted link team members with 10 heavy flamer hits, and my poor bot got shot to bits. Bah. *shakes fist* It took a couple of mines and some Zeros to finally take apart that link team. My poor Lunokhod...
  20. A write up of mission 2 from the Fat Yuan Yuan PDF, Big Trouble in Little Lo Pan's! https://redheadhobbies.wordpress.com/2017/08/03/36-big-trouble-in-little-lo-pans/
  21. Hi all, Just want to share with you my blog. Its purpose is to provide me an index of what I am finishing, a catalogue of my present and past miniatures and (hopefully) will provide you some references and/or inspiration for your projects. Https://pintaoplomo.blogspot.com.es I promise will translate it soon, and all my future posts will be in English as well. Hope you'll like it.
  22. What kind of content would you want to see out of an infinity youtube channel?
  23. H-Logs stands for „Hydra Logistics“, a company that has its origins in the Nomad Nation and is specialised in providing transport and/or logisical solutions for every kind of cargo. The good relations to the Nomads provide the company with a prominent location in VaudeVille and access to almost every sort of military support. That is highly neccessary, since the cargos are very often targets to all sorts of attacks. Looking for a professional transport solution? -Go H-Logs! Brookers have to be the best in several different aspects. They represent their company on offical occasions and in an economical and financial way, so they have to know their way around market-strategies, numbers and calculations and everything else a real buisnessman has to provide to run a buisness. On the other hand they have to be highly trained warriors, knowing their way around combat tactics, infiltration and every other aspect of warfare they need to deliver their cargo, no matter where it goes. Well, enough of the fluff part. When I started with Infinity I was rather short on funds. Since I wanted to play the game nontheless, I took what was available and fitted. Maybe you recognise them. By now, I am proud owner of some original Infinity Models... tendency growing. Here, I shall keep you up to date on my progress. I am pretty proud of the light reflex on the helmet... Here some "house staff" of H-Logs. I play them as Alguaciles The securtiae lady Mobile Brigada Agualciles Hacker So, that's it for now. Next up a Zero
  24. Sometimes my friends have told me they would prefer it if the military orders weren't a thing or weren't a part of panoceania. Sometimes I have seen similar feelings posted on this forum. So I just thought I would ask " What would you replace the Military Orders with if you could?" If there is any other sectorial you'd like to replace go ahead and list them as well. If you think they should stay right where they are you can feel free to make your case as well.
  25. Someone I know suggested the idea that yu jing and pan o could unite to take over the entire sphere. I wanted to know what you guys thought. Is it possible for these two to unite? Would it make sense? Would it work? Would haqq or the other sphere powers find a way to stop them or at least put up a fight? It should be brought up Yu Jing and Pan O have fought together before against the combined but that isn't quite the same thing as a temporary all out alliance to fight other parts of the sphere.
