Different ads for holo ad boards - suggestion

31 posts in this topic

Now that the issues with Micro art has been resolved (or are in the process), I have a suggestion to spice up our Infinity tables. Currently Micro Arts does one set of 3 lasercut holo ad projectors with 3 different perspex ads to go in them. I love the idea of busy and cluttered futuristic city and would love to include more holo ads but would like to have more than just 3 different ads.

Is it possible to create 3 more ads that differ from the ones already available with the holo ad set? It wouldn't require a change to the lasercut element of the existing set, just 3 different perspex ads. They could marketed as holo ad A & B (or C, D, E, etc. if Micro Art are up to it ) .

I know I'd buy more to add to my table.

Sorry if this has already been suggested, I just couldn't find it.

I had the same thought, and would definately buy a second set with new ads.

I'd also buy a second (and THIRD, for that matter) set of holo ads if they had different adverts in them. Hey get lots of attention when I set them up at my lgs, and they look just fantastic.

How about these:

-Kaplan Tactical Services

-Druze Escort

-Pan O or Yu Jing TAG advertizement

-Fight of some sort "someone vs someone"

I'm not sure those would make a lot of sense. It would be like seeing a billboard for Blackwater or and Abrams tank.

-Fight of some sort "someone vs someone"

As an Aristeia! advertisement, this would be great. "One night only, Wild Bill v. Musashi!" (Yes, I know) with a profile of each of the fighters.

I'd like to see some more mundane, but thematic, advertisements, along the lines of Maya shows, drinks, foods, restaurants. Ariadna needs a Coca Cola add, but I know that will never happen (officially, at least).

Maybe one or two themed adds for each Human, non-Aleph faction? CA's not going to advertise to Humans (yet) and I don't see Aleph spending a lot of money on consumer marketing. ;)

I think commercial things that aren't tied to a particular faction would be nice: soda, vehicles, shuttle services to different systems. Perhaps ads for local night clubs or restaurants for fancier boards, pawn shops and liquor for less well to do ones.

I've made crappy posters for Silk and teseum, but I'm no graphic artist. Faction specific ones would be good too, but perhaps insofar as the language.

@cervantes - Yes true, obviously, but thats kinda the point. Im thinking of infinity universe as quite more open and "marshal law" then our current one. I picture it as anything and everything is advertized, much less laws and regulations. More like a bustling metropolis where its too busy and frantic. No real "justice" or law enforcement other then the place you might be at who is owend by that faction :S

Just my thoughts....

@ShadowClad/Cervantes - I gotta agree with Cervantes on this one, it would be weird to see adds for Cutters or rifles, though some of the escorts might make sense. I could however easily see military propaganda holo ads for each faction, particularly Yu Jing, Some sort of "join today, do your duty" Type thing.

OH!!! Awesome thought, what's the one model that exists and totally works for advertisements??? Crazy Koala!!!

One of the ads is for I-Kol (In love and war). I'd like to see more like this, with advertisements for products from VaudeVIlle. A bit of bio-engineering "reach your full potential", "become the person you desire".

Maybe a chimera escort service ;)

Or pupnik/dogbowl/Aristeia! fight being advertised.

I can see PMCs advertizing on boards too and would like to see the Kaplan and Druze logo's, maybe with a Merc posing professionally. The Holo-wall section is advertizing personal body armour. And Odalisque fill a bodyguard service to VIPs, I can imagine others advertising their services.

Finally some propaganda. A big brother ALEPH style "Be advised; You are under close observance", "ALEPH is watching for your personal safety."

And maybe some boards that are showing an error, or have been hacked by Nomads. With some of their lines;

"Forget everything they have taught you", "Free yourself by dreaming" "Chaos is in you".

I never said guns, I said TAGs and what did you think I meant? Of course its propaganda, not selling the TAGs as merchandise...I guess I should have explained better. :)

Thank you, see Im more inclined to agree with your thoughts. You gotta break some reality and realize its a miniature game with cool models and fluff, even if its cool I doubt Im paying 9 dollars for a fake coke ad from the future, but body armor or lhost bodies or something more cool, yes Id do that.

I would certainly be interested in buying anything new from Micro Art that involves the Infinity brand. The idea of different perspex ad boards is a great idea and i hope MA get onto this for a future project as the out lay costs wouldn't be that huge i guess.

Maybe we should start a online poll with a list of themes for the new proposed ad boards?

Yup, coloured ads for the concrete walls, as well as alternate standalone holo ads would be great. More variation will be very welcome.

Even some sort of sticker/transfer adds in some sort of poster taht you could apply to any flat terrain surface would be cool.

Well, Beretta is still in the business - after about 500 years... on the other hand (despite my dislike for Italian firearms) they wouldn't last so long if they were making poor-quality products. B)

I'd love to see an advert for the Nomad Zondbots tv show, with them fighting a ridiculous cartoon versions of some Combined Army monster and what channel I could watch it on a saturday morning on :P

Read their entry on the minis page: http://www.infinitythegame.com/infinity/en/2011/miniatures/zondbots/

Zondbots! even sounds like a saturday morning cartoon lol

Zondies are awesome :D I played games where they bravery blocked an TO Camo Ninja, or discovered an impersonator. Opponents usually do not care about those small little knights :D

It would be awesome to get a holo with them, as knights of the light in those dark days.

Wow, those are some seriously crazy ideas and we love'em :D

The holoboards/ads range can definitively use some expanding - we've thought about introducing the new printed acrylics, but because all the havoc couldn't really focus on the idea.

Untill now, more or less :) Anyway thanks a lot for all the ideas, feel free to throw more at us. We'll bump heads with CB for approval as soon as we can an see what can be done ;)

In such a case, catch an idea I fished elsewhere on the formu:

we'll see,for Now I'll just prepare an alt cover for The game case: "Aristeia presents: adventures of Senor Massacre"

:P
