  1. TRIUMcorp is a former Varuna corporation formed by french (new caledonia), suiss and new-zealand rich industrial family TRIUMcorp was well known for their TAG factories and advanced termo-optical technologies. Few years back TRIUMcorp was sued by Omnia Research Creation Corporation for corporate espionage, since then, they lost most of their state contract in Varuna that resulted with the move of most of TRIUMcorp assets out of PanOceania. Rumors speaks about tied with bakunin genetics and drugs cartels and others various outlaws. TRIUMcorp is still present in Panoceania in numerous secular lobbies. Rumors explain their hate toward Christians lobbies by the fact that most of current TRIUMcorp member could be from Templar origin ... Since the incident with ORC Corp, TRIUMcorp start a program of paramilitary troops to protect their labs and factories, and when threats are low they offer theirs services for various prices: _military training for militia, _VIP protection _pacification of riot _security solutions The military structure is divided in divisions: Command, specialist, specops and assault. plus mercenaries. Command Division handle the training part and act as commander in large scale mission Specialist Division act as technicians with gun, mostly for deep space rescue and life support emergencies Spec Ops Division are used when discretion is mandatory aka illegal operations. most of the time for Panoceanian contract that involve trespassing Yujing territories. Assault Division is the brutal force. Riots in space stations often end with an blood bath, for this kind of action, you need the toughest of soldiers added to those 4 divisions, you have the contracted security forces that are temporary hired soldiers for low threat missions often hired from former Varuna fusilliers or other similar military forces. And TRIUM agents or corporate agents: They all are experienced soldiers who represent TRIUMcorp interest all around the human sphere; they negotiate contracts and can be found anywhere, unlike the divisions troopers, they do not live in TRIUMcorp station or ship. -------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Kate, my first Infinity finished model: -Contracted security force- Niobé, the killer croc: -Command division- -Specops division- Kibako, the must have kamau hacker: -Specialist division- Eris the assassin: -Specops division- Khayryya the ultra violent ILO: -Assault division- Erzbeth the mad doctor: -Field doctor- -Assault division- Jezebel the mutilated: -Corporate agent- C&C are welcome and i'm french so dont hesitate to correct my spelling.
  2. Hello everyone. I want to show some of my painted models, what I'm especially proud of. You an also check out my blog: It's russian, so not everyone able to read it, but there are many decent photos to look at.
  3. Sorry if this isn't the right place to put this topic, I wasn't honestly sure where it should go so I just placed it here. So lately I've been clearing out my old miniatures in an attempt to get a little extra cash. My friend and I like playing infinity and I was thinking of just keeping a couple of small armies for us both to play . I was wondering whether yall thought red veil or icestorm were better for a general introduction to the game? Or if it might just be better to ask my friend what army he wants to play and grab a couple of the small army boxes instead?
  4. I as recently playing mgs v and language is a big theme in the game. You need translators so you can interrogate enemy soldiers from around the world. This got me thinking about how motherbase would actually work and whether or not they would have their own common language that soldiers would be expected to speak or understand to enable communication. What I started to wonder after that was whether or not empires like panoceania and yu jing would have their own common language so that people from different parts of the sphere could communicate in a military setting.Is there any information on what the lingua franca for something like pan o would be? I would assume English but that may be wrong. If not how do armies with a huge variety of languages actually communicate?
  5. In this tutorial I'd like to show you step by step how to paint shiny armors for PanOceanian minis. A lot of you guys asked me for it, so I decided to share these pics and tips with you. I hope you'll find them helpful. If you have any questions, please feel free to ask. I'm a newbie in making tutorials and I hope you will help me to improve my hmm... "teaching?" skills by leaving comments and giving advises. Remember that you can use whatever paints or colors you like (especially cold colors) and mix them in the way you want. It doesn't have to be blue. It doesn't have to be PanOceania. Note that Nissa mini, which I painted for this tutorial isn't the same mini as Nissa in the picture above. I forgot to take some pics during work and I made this tutorial after I finished PanO army. This Nissa is my own mini. The point is, that technique which i used for painting them is exactly the same Let's start then! Prime your mini with your favorite color. In most cases I use black primer, cause I'm used to this and it's easier for me to work with it. White primer provides more vibrant final colors, so you can use it if you like. As you can see my mini is pre-shaded. I used airbrush and some grey. This trick helped me to get a lighter blue on the armor and get a general volume effect. Paints that I used: 1. base color: Vallejo Air French Blue 71.088 (Vallejo Model Color 70.899 Dark Prusia Blue is a good choice too) 2. lighter tones: Vallejo Air Light Sea Blue 71.089 and Vallejo Model Color 70.961 Sky Blue 3. highlights: Vallejo Model Color 70.961 Sky Blue and Vallejo Model Color 70.951 White 4. glazes and shades: Vallejo Game Color 72.088 Blue Ink, Vallejo Air 71.091 Signal Blue and Vallejo Game Color 72.051 Black You can also use blue fluorescent pigment, but it isn't necessary. I like it, but you can skip this step and it will still look good. This trick works better on bigger parts and infinity minis are very tiny. You probably won't see spectacular difference on pics, but despite of this fact, I decided to mention about this product. Maybe you'd like to try it someday, it's a great fun to use it 1. I applied a base color ( French Blue) in several thin layers to get good coverage. 2.Then, I applied Light Sea Blue to the areas, which I want to look brighter, using an airbrush. It looked like this: Basically you don't need an airbrush to use this technique I use it cause it's easy to get smooth transition of colors with it and it helps me to paint faster, but I know that not everybody has it. If you prefer brush, you can simply use it. (I showed how to get similar effect with brush on the left thigh of the mini. First, I repainted it with a base color ) I applied 1:1 mix of French Blue and Light Sea Blue to the areas that I wanted to look brighter. Try to use several, very thin layers of paint, to get as smooth transition as you can. Remember that the more layers you apply, the more intense the color gets. Sometimes it's not about using brighter paint but more layers of the same, but very thin paint. So you will use the same mixture of paints but the painted area will be smaller and smaller; From darker tones (fewer layers of color) to brighter (more layers of color) If you don't know how to get a proper consistence of paint, imagine that it has to be transparent but not too thin, cause you don't want to sink your mini. Maybe this balance It's the main secret of layering. Forget about "milk consistence" and stuff. Sounds wise, but I doubt that anybody know how it really looks. At least, I have no idea. Let's do the small test. Get a flat plastic surface (for example pallette) wich is already painted, or has a kind of pattern. Draw a line on it with your paint. If paint covers everything, it is to thick for making layers. If it isn't cover anything, just spills around, and creates irregular shapes with ugly edges it is too thin. Perfect layer of paint will cover the surface easily and evenly (put a small amount of pressure on your brush) but it's also very transparent and you can see what's underneath. You have to find that moment when paint is still transparent and doesn't have ugly edges after it dries :). Of course sometimes, you will need even thinner paint for extremely smooth effects and for glazes, but in general, tip which I described works very good Try this and maybe your color transitions will turn out to be smoother Next, I applied two or three thin layers of pure Light See Blue on the brighter areas. Take your time and try to get a very smooth transition of colors. As you can see the difference isn't very huge. You can do it without airbrush. It just takes longer and you'll have to be patient and careful. 3. Next, I applied some Signal Blue to the areas, which I wanted to look darker. You can do it with airbrush or brush and you don't have to try to make extremely smooth color transition this time, cause we'll add some blue glaze later and it should fix everything 4. I think this step is one of the most important thing in this whole tutorial and painting minis in general. Infinity minis are very detailed and If you want to make them look bright and clear you can't miss any detail. I tried to separate every plate of the armor and every single piece of equipment with a thin, dark line. It helps me to bring out the real shape of the mini and get a bit dramatic/comic look. You just need a thin and sharply pointed brush and some patience. 'Wash' seems to be easy choice to make things faster, but trust me, painting dark lines is better. Trust the force, jedi Black seems to be an obvious choice, but again I used Signal Blue. It's very interesting color. Very intense and dark, but not too dark. I tried both and I think Signal Blue is better. It looks like this: 5. It's time to add some lighter tones with brush. I put several layers of pure Light Sea Blue to the brighter areas. I tried to get a quite smooth transition, but not too smooth. It's a kind of NMM technique. If you want to make your mini look vibrant and dramatic, you have to keep quite strong contrast between colors. Otherwise everything will look a bit flat. I also started to highlight some edges with Light Sea Blue. Remember that highlights have to be very thin. It's easier to draw a thin line with sharply pointed brush. For painting highlights on flatter surfaces (like thighs armor) I suggest you to use a middle part of the brush hair. Try to cover the brush hair evenly, with a very small amount of paint, then delicate touch the edge with the middle part of the brush hair and try to draw a line. Paint will stay on the edge only. Remember that paint shouldn't be too thin, cause line will be blurred and you need a really sharp line 6. Next, I applied a thin layer of Light Sea Blue and Sky Blue mixture (1:1) to the brightest parts of the armor. After that, I highlighted every single edge with pure Sky Blue. Don't avoid any of them It's very important. Lines can be thicker, if they border brighter areas. 7. Now it's time to make our shades look deeper The best way to achieve it, is using inks. Inks are very transparent but also very vibrant, so we're gonna use blue ink as a glaze. The only trap is that sometimes it turns out too glossy To avoid it, I mixed Blue Ink with a drop of 'matt medium'. Then, I applied it in a thin layer to darker and middle-tone parts of the armor. If your transitions between colors wasn't perfectly smooth, this layer will help you to cover it up. When it dries, you'll get strong blue color and deeper contrast on your armor. Blue pigment trick: Sometimes, when surface is still too glossy I use some a layer of blue fluo pigment mixed with acrylic binder or some matt medium. When it dries it is very matt but it keeps strong and crazy color. 8. Then, I applied some pure black paint to the darkest areas to increase the overall contrast of the armor plates. 9. Finally I added some tiny spots with pure white on the edges and draw few very thin scratches on the armor plates. This step make your mini look hmm.. shiny These little spots catch an eye, so paint them gently on the part, which you want to bring out, but don't overdo it, cause you can loose the effects of your blending, and everyone will see only white lines. So that's all I guess I do hope you like this tutorial and you find it useful. I'm very happy that I can share it with you and I wish you all happy painting! I'm sure you'll improve this technique and I hope I'll improve it too in the future It's an effect of trials and errors method and I think I have still a lot of errors to make.

  6. Hi, apologies if this has been asked before, I didn't find quite this situation in my search. Got Ice Storm, looking to make a 200pt list with minimal purchases (as much about limiting rules to learn as the financial cost). I've also got Joan, so I could make a list with her without adding anything, but that's not working out too well in terms of number of orders & specialists in 200pts. I haven't played any ITS type missions yet, but I know I need specialists, so I tried to bear that in mind. Here's what I've come up with - need to buy the Auxilia box, but aside from that I'm good, and requires minimal proxying. I was aiming to avoid hacking (and seeing if my opponent would kindly do the same) so I don't have to learn the rules, but that's the only kind of specialist Orcs and Akalis have: Pano Ice Storm 200pt ITS (Auxilia) ────────────────────────────────────────────────── 8 FUSILIER Lieutenant Combi Rifle / Pistol, Knife. (0 | 10) FUSILIER Combi Rifle / Pistol, Knife. (0 | 10) NISSE MULTI Sniper Rifle / Pistol, Knife. (1.5 | 34) FATHER-KNIGHT (Forward Observer) Combi Rifle, Nimbus Grenades / Breaker Pistol, DA CCW. (0 | 46) AUXILIA (Forward Observer) Combi Rifle + AUXBOT_1 / Pistol, Knife. (0 | 15) AUXBOT_1 Heavy Flamethrower / Electric Pulse. (- | 4) AUXILIA (Forward Observer) Combi Rifle + AUXBOT_1 / Pistol, Knife. (0 | 15) AUXBOT_1 Heavy Flamethrower / Electric Pulse. (- | 4) AKAL COMMANDO Spitfire / Pistol, E/M CCW. (1.5 | 28) ORC Hacker (Assault Hacking Device) Combi Rifle / Pistol, Knife. (0.5 | 42) 3.5 SWC | 200 Points Open in Infinity Army What do you think about the list? Is there actually a decent Joan-based one at 200pts? Would I be better off getting something other that the Auxilia? Etc. (Also, side question: Is asking to avoid hacking reasonable, or should I just jump in at the deep end?) Thanks!
  7. I was thinking about doing an all myridom or all thorakitai list but I wasn't sure how well that would work out. So I just thought I would ask and see what you all thought of it. I was going to be using things like kts, druze , djanbazan and other miniatures from various armies I like as proxies since I like aleph's rules but I am not a big fan of their miniatures.
  8. Heya, I'm a fairly new infinity player and after lurking for a bit I figured I might as well start a painting log. I recently got back into miniature gaming and painting after a 5 year break. I always liked the infinity range but never really picked it up until now. I settled with PanO as main force at first, but soon bought some Aleph to try out. And I'm pretty sure other factions will follow... Some WIP shots: Aguila: Myrmidon hacker: This is more of a colourscheme test. I always avoided painting white, but I wanted a white/orange scheme for Aleph. Not 100% pleased and need to tweak the whites a bit... Oh and that haircut... it sucks. I really hate the way it's sculpted and I don't like to paint it, and it shows Finished Orc and fusilier hacker:
  9. Throughout Infinity we hear references to the PanOceanian Hexahedron and the Ariadnan Stavka. Both of the Organizations have been referred to as the Military HQ of their respective nations, equivalent to the American Pentagon and the real-life Stavka of the Russian Empire/Soviet Union/Russian Federation. However they have also been referred to as the Intelligence apparatus as well. Inner Hexahedron is specifically cited as the Intel branch for PanO but it is still referenced as just Hexahedron in common parlance. Yevgueni Voronins description makes it sound like Stavka is Ariadna's Intelligence Agency and Central Command all rolled into one. This presents some confusion for me as most nations don't centrally locate that much power and influence into one organization. Even the Nazis had the regular army + the schutzstaffel and kept them separate. The KGB was not part of the Soviet Military. What do you all think? How have you been interpreting it?
  10. I've decided to post some of my painting and basing and things. For...reasons? I don't know. I like looking through everybody else's paint schemes, so I figured I'd post mine. I'll try to keep adding to this top post so it all stays in one place. For starters, here's some Nomads. Hoooray. I've still got some Tohaa and PanO on their way, but I don't have photos yet. Remolded a Spektr Sniper Rifle and then added some blue wash...unfortunately then I added some yellow glaze on his he's named greenie. In Game he turns out pretty cool. Tsyklon Spitfire. It's got climbing plus, so clearly it should be climbing...right?! Tomcats also have climbing plus. So this Engineer's hanging around to fix the Tsyklon Tsyklon Base: Tomcat Base: Still in Process for this one. needs touch up after attaching the miniature and then clean up and stuff, but I figured I'd post early, since folks seem to like Climbing Plus (really enjoy it too...who doesn't like sprinting up the sides of buildings to set up Reaktion Bot HMG nests?!) So I figured it's Nomads...they're in space. let's make a ship!
  11. I abandoned my plog long time ago but I haven't forgot to paint infinity miniatures... Here, the archived plog: And here, the last miniature I have painted, a Cutter from Panoceania what do you think?
  12. Do you think humans would be better off joining the combined in their quest or staying as part of the human sphere? Why?
  13. How about my toni? comments are appreciated Tony Macayana Painted
  14. Haqqislam vs PanOceania - Comms Centre (ITS 300pts) I have a lot of batreps up on youtube that are simply slideshows of pictures with an audio track of my commentary overlaid. This time I've tried to create a batrep that consists of video clips taken from my cellphone camera. The quality wasn't as great as I'd have liked, and some of the clips didn't survive, but as a first attempt it didn't work out too badly. Just make sure the YouTube player is set to the highest resolution playback. Thoughts on the mission. I definitely prefer missions that are end-of-game scoring instead of end-of-round scoring, since the latter favours second-turn play a bit too heavily. I also appreciate the exclusion zone needing to be accounted for, and above all, I really like the fact that there are two potential paths to victory--1), connecting more consoles by the end, or 2) killing more specialists, guys in general, taking the classified). Makes for an interesting and reasonably balanced mission. Thoughts on my list. Was generally pretty happy with it--this is my second ever game with Haqqislam. Given that I have two infiltrating specialists in the al'hawwa and farzan, I'm not sure if the toureg needs to be an assault hacker. I guess I'm thinking I couldn't deal with a TAG otherwise, but given how much potential the fiday/ragik have in killing cheerleaders, I bet I'd be fine. Will be trying out non-specialist-toureg lists in future.

I thought it was great. He's my most regular opponent and hasn't been running croc men lately, and they're the only thing that it's missing. Drop the TR bot and put a croc FO in there, imo. Aconticmento Regular minelayer is a nice touch though, the mine if placed well can be great against those hyper-aggressive enemy rambos, especially if they are a bit flimsy, as the Haqq ones are.

  15. While this will definitely be made into a proper hobby thread in the near future, I wanted to get people's thoughts on my new project. A large, HI focused Military Orders force that will be painted (and hopefully played) to a high standard. I managed to snag a bunch of this NIB on ebay at a great price, and then built out from there. I wanted to have plenty of heavy infantry, but be able to run a variety of lists. With that in mind, this is what I bought. Worth mentioning I did read the MO tactica and tried to keep that in mind. This isn't exactly a list so I'm going to format casually. Please let me know if I've missed any units I really ought to have! Joan of Arc Gabriele de Fersen Father Knight Father Knight (icestorm promo) 4x Order Sergent Spec Sergent w/Sniper 4x Knights of Santiago (box) Teutonic Knight Knight of Montessa Knight of the Holy Sepulchre 2x Knight Hospitaller Knight Hospitaller w/HMG 3x Fusiliers (one converted to be usable as a hacker) Fusilier Angus (why not) Crusader Brethren Crusader Brethren w/HMG Black Friar w/Sniper (converted from starter Nisses Sniper) War Correspondent Seraph with Auxbot Bulleteer w/spitfire Bulleteer w/heavy shotgun 2x Dronbots (leaning pathfinder/fugazi?) Pretty solid force here I hope, comes out around roughly 1100 points and 20ish SWC. This is going to be an army for both hobby and gaming purposes, and I'm getting scenic bases... So I'd really like to acquire all the necessary parts up front before I dive in. Any one I've forgotten about, or any sculpts I could stand to grab a couple more copies of? This is the collection as it stands.
  16. I wanted to have some humans fighting along side my combined forces and I was wondering what everyone thought the best fitting proxies would be? I figured KTS or Druze for some of the morats or something like that. Which would also be useful because I was going to use KTS and Druze to proxy aleph forces as well.
  17. I've been on this forum for awhile and met some pretty great people. Lately i've been loosing interest in infinity though. I don't know what it is but in the last few games i've had I have just been kind of bored. I don't know if it's the factions I mostly play or what exactly but I feel like i'm drifting further and further away from miniature gaming in general. So I just thought I'd ask if anyone else felt or has felt the same way and what they did about it. That or if you have suggestions on how to reinvigorate infinity for me i'm all ears.
  18. I wanted to know if anyone takes jumppacks in their lists normally. I have done a few lists with things like sikh commandos and the like and have never found their ability to jump very useful. If anything they seem like a waste of points to me. What do you guys think?
  19. Recently I've been expanding all of my armies. My panoceania and Haqqislam forces in particular have been growing rapidly. But it occured to me recently that I don't really have anything other than vanilla and QK units for my haqqlists. I was going to expand a bit and buy the hassassin starter and was wondering. Would you take Vanilla or Hassassin forces? Which do you think is more fun or more difficult to pull off well? Also since folks are here I suppose I should also ask what hassassin units are a must have in vanilla or the hassassin sectorials? Military orders as well if you wouldn't mind.
  20. I was much entertained! Read Here: The Armies The Board The Game Enjoy!
  21. So I'm not entirely sure what possessed me to do this but I decided I wanted to do a D&D themed infinity project. I wanted to have a miniature to represent all the basic classes for either 3rd or 5th edition D&D. This would include... Fighter Rouge Cleric Wizard Monk Paladin Barbarian Bard Ranger Warlock At least for fifth edition that is what I would be working with. Now I think some choices are obvious. A fighter could easily be HI or a unit that specializes in Melee, a rouge might be like a fiday or a ninja . Something like that. I would love to hear suggestions , also if we could make it so the cleric and the paladin aren't both from panoceania and their military orders that would be great. Also multifactions is preferred.
  22. I was just wondering which faction is the most popular? Go ahead and vote for whichever army is your favorite or whichever armies you play.
  23. In a recent game against an Ariadna army I learned a bit about how important both camo and multispectral visors can be. From what I understand there are two units in the haqq line up with MSV . These being the Djan and the Govads. I was just wondering , if I was playing vanilla haqq which one is the better choice overall?
  24. Hello again, soldiers of the Hyperpower. In the recent months since my original thread on what PanO sectorial I should start, my tastes have changed. It turns outs that MO is my favorite out of the current or future sectorials for this faction. That being said I have already begun to build a MO force, which is going well so far. However, an interesting thought occurred to me while I was fiddling in Army Builder. How viable are non-Knight MO lists? Specifically those spamming the board with Order Sergeants? So I decided to challenge the folks here in PanO to discuss/build+post about this idea. Can it be done effectively or do you think these lists will crash and burn? Sound off and have fun exploring a unique flavor of the Hyperpower!! Units allowed: Seraphs (for those of you who like T.A.G.s) Remotes & Palbots (for those of you who like to run them) Fusiliers (Order Sergeants don't have a Lt. option) Indigo BiPandra (Fusilier Character and can link with Fusiliers) Order Sergeants Brother Konstantinos (he can link with Order Sergeants) Machinist Trauma-Doc Warcor Crusader Brethren (technically not Knights){Thanks to @Stiopa for pointing this out} Black Friars (technically not Knights){Thanks to @Stiopa for pointing this out}
  25. my tikbalang! not yet eye and lighting things my Hi infantry and show your panO to us
