  1. So I recently ordered the new Taskmaster model with the tinbot and crazykoalas. I've used the Lunokhod a lot before, and the moran as well. Now, the crazykoalas profile says disposable 2, and the lunokhod and moran have Crazykoalas (2), while the Taskmaster only has Crazykoalas. What's got me confused here, is that 2, since when more than one of the same weapons are carried, it'd say something like 2 Combi Rifles (in the case for the Gecko), not Combi Rifle (2). I'm confused that this might just be an inconsistency. But from my understanding, the Taskmaster does indeed get 2 crazykoalas. And if the morans and lunokhods have crazykoalas (2), then does that mean they technically have 4 crazykoalas? Additionally, can I start the game with crazykoalas on the table? Or do they need to be deployed? If the prior conundrum is true, then that means morans and lunokhods can start with 4 koalas on the table, which seems like a bit of overkill, also considering that neither of the kits provide that number of koalas. Does minelayer allow them to be deployed on the table along with the model? (not that any of the three troopers in question have that skill) So the baseline question is: Do taskmasters, lunokhods, and morans all have 2 koalas, or do the latter two have 4? And must they start the game in the trooper's inventory?
  2. 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.
  3. 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: 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
  4. Hello, it has been a long time since my last visit there and my old gallery has been archaized - I still invite You to watch it, but now, something new to my CJC squad
  5. looking for alternative Pupnik sculpts, anyone seen anything suitable to scale? In light of CB's new scale and strength in sculpts these days, im look for replacements. love the chimera as a tiny boogieman with a whip, but the Pupnik sculpts, those weeny anime torsos... i want something that looks a bit more burly or bestial. -cheers
  6. 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:
  7. So thanks to Tabletop Simulator i've been trying out a bunch of different armies. I made a little straw poll to try and decide what army I would try out next so I thought I would post it here incase anyone wants to put in their two cents.
  8. Hi all. I was thinking about buying Pano and Nomads faction books. Do they have a lot of interesting and new info that wasn`t featured before? Do they worth getting? Thanks in advance.
  9. 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.
  10. Hi there, I started painting my Nomads about a year ago and changed the colorsheme halfway. Therefore not too many miniatures are finished yet, but I keep on painting to reach a nice large group of Corregidor Nomads someday. The colorsheme I use is influenced by Deus Ex and I really like it hopefully, you do as well. Sorry for my bad English. I’m from Germany so English isn’t my mother tongue. I hope I can answer your comments fair enough though. Here's a picture of my group so far. Well the Gecko is not really finished yet and the picture itself a bit too dark, but I think you get a viable impression of my nomads. This two were finished this weak, so I've made single pics for them. First is a Intruder with HMG: Second is a Marine Engineering Officer I'll use as HVT.
  11. Just finished painting for the Michigan GT this weekend. Two lists, 300 points, five rounds. To celebrate, I set everyone out for some pictures. I haven't taken a group photo like this since last year. Everyone who is going this weekend Zoe, Pi-Well, Prowler, Morlock Reverend Moiras, Reverend Healer Riot Grrls Moderators, Zeroes Arale (HVT) & Warcor Reaktion Zond, Vertigo Zond, Transductor Zond Lizard, Lunokhod Zond, Salyut Zond
  12. 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)
  13. Heyo fellow Nomads, Am I going Full Koala here? Does this list even make sense, with all the Koala involved?

  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. 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.
  16. Alright so this is the "Final" version of this. There is the possibility that I missed a miniature but for the most part the numbers should be accurate. Obviously you should allow for a slight margin of error. Never the less these are the results I came to. Genderless includes tags, remotes and various other things along those lines. IF it looked male it went into the male category, if It looked female it went into the female category ect. Female Miniatures Total Models Percent female Nomads 56 163 34.3% Haqqislam 44 151 29.1% Aleph 20 78 25.6% Panoceania 31 139 23.% Tohaa 14 61 22.9% Yu jing 33 150 22% Mercs 12 57 21% Ariadna 32 170 18.8% Combined 11 136 8% Remotes, genderless Total models Percent Aleph20 78 25.6% Combined 31 136 22.7% Nomads 27 163 16.5% Panoceania 23 139 16.5% Tohaa 7 61 11.4% Yujing 16 150 10.6% Mercs 7 57 7.% Haqqislam 10 151 6.6% Ariadna 3 170 1.7% Male Miniatures Total models Percent Ariadna 135 170 79.4% Mercs 41 57 71.9% Combined 94 136 69.1% Yujing 101 150 67.3% Tohaa 40 61 65.5% Haqq 97 151 64.2% Pan O 84 139 60.4% Nomads 80 163 49% Aleph 38 78 48.7%
  17. 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):
  18. 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:
  19. 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
  20. 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
  21. 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.
  22. Write up of my last game of the summer - Pulpibeer Fest!
  23. 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.
  24. 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,
  25. 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?
