Hello! These polls always pop up now and again! I simply want to know how many faction players we have of each force on this forum. Remember, this is a poll to get an idea of the forum's composition and could not possibly reflect the wider game.

I know Tunguska is not a faction yet, but I also know some players are planning for it and wanted to give them the option.

If you would like, post why you chose your faction. For a specific model? Did you pick up Bakunin once they got updated and end up loving them? Are you one of the millions that started Corregidor for the Brigada?

 

 

Allow me to explain the questions:

If you do not play any Nomads faction please do not vote.

The first question includes "Other Faction". I want you to choose "Other Faction" if your primary faction is not a Nomads faction. This question is to gauge how many primary Nomads and Nomads sectorial players we have.

The second question is to gauge what people are playing when they are playing Nomads. So it includes everyone with a Nomad force. If you play Nomads at all choose the faction you primarily play.

 

Examples

Someone who considers Vanilla Nomads their primary faction with choose "Nomads" for both question.

Someone who plays PanO but also has a Vanilla Nomads force will choose "other faction" as their primary force and "Nomads" and their primary Nomads force.

Does this make sense? If you need clarification please ask!

I've choosen Nomads when I saw models like the crouched zero, sin eater sniper and the spektr sniper on one leg, the uberfallkommando, wildcat heavy rocket launcher, custodier and the spifire prowler and also for the concept of the army (who they are, their position in Infinity background, ecc)

No experience at 300 points until now, I play vanilla (I just buy the models I like and then make a list the best I can with what I have) but I'm planning to play Bakunin sectorial sooner or later.

I hate moderators' sculpts, I bought the Uberfallkommando some years ago and never assembled (I'm waiting for a meditation course)

Just painted the sin eater, that it was also the first miniature of my life: went back in acetone

The Spektr that is stabalizing his sniper with his leg was one of the reasons I started with Nomads.

Infinity was my first game to paint as well. I still have my first paintjobs though. They were just old Alguacillies Combi guys so I don't mind them being legacy paintjobs.

I mainly play Vanilla Nomads simply because I love the Szalamandra.  I started off in Corregidor because I'm a huge Deadpool fan and Senor Massacre was the model that got me to pick up this game in the first place. 

I did choose Tunguska as my primary Nomad faction because I'm super excited for that faction to become available.  I can't say with certainty that I will end up there for sure, but if it gives me access to the Szalamandra in a factoral, I'll most likely stay.  Szalamandra, Interventor and Spekters are freaking awesome.  Just going to have to see what some of the fireteam options will be.

I consider Qapu Khalqi to be my primary faction - mainly because they were chronologically first, and I think I am most emotionally connected to them. However, I play all of my factions on alternating schedule (basically 1 game with each, then next round), so it would be difficult to point my "main" faction in a strict sense (the 3rd is Hassassin Bahram, and there is a possibility of starting Ramah as 4th, so I guess you could call me a Haqq guy with a sideline at Corregidor: I do not plan on starting Bakunin, and Tunguska, well, we'll see when we get there, but rather don't think so).

My Corregidor is a result of branching out from Qapu Khalqi (I mean, I had those Alguaciles and the old Brigadas already, and Iguana was in the pipeline anyway... why not then?) in pre-Paradiso era.

My primary faction is Onyx/MAF. When i started playing Infinity i wanted two different factions for my tabletop and so others could play if they showed interest. I chose Bakunin but i've been more careful about my purchases. Riot Grrls, Taskmasters, Sin-eaters, Avicenna, Moderators, Lunokhod, Uberfall, and Morlocks. Honorable mentions go to the Lizard, Zoe, and Zeros, My lists try to fit in as much of those as possible and I'm really excited to see the finished Grrls for sale. As well as that possible new Taskmaster. The ammo crate suggesting it'll be the HRL, maybe even red fury.

The Taskmaster is my favorite lt because it feels very aggressive and thematic. The HMG model works well for the red fury. The mini is my favorite outside of Onyx. Grrls always were awesome in fluff and profile. To finally get what look like good sculpts has me excited. Sin-eaters are unique, i love them. Avicenna is yet another great mini and suits my troop choice well in Bakunin. Moderators and Morlocks fill the LI and WB roles well. I just hope to see an updated box of Morlocks. Speaking of updated sculpts i want new Uberfall, Zeros, Zoe, and a Lizard. I actually still think all but Zoe are still decent but the current quality being produced is just so good. I'd probably buy Moiras if they got updated too. Until then i'll keep using Reverands as proxies the rare times i table them. Wildcats are great proxies for Zeros, while I'm on that subject.

I also get urges to play vanilla because i love the Moran, Bandit, and yes, Intruder. If i could find a way to convince CB to toss everything i don't use in Bakunin for those three troops I would be a very happy camper. Just one intruder in my Bakunin lists would be soooo good.

I only started playing recently and if it wasn't for the Taskmaster I would have ended up elsewhere. I was seriously considering using the Taskmaster as a base for the Suryats. A new head, weapon, and I'd be on my way.

Bakunin player through and through. I like the wackiness and diversity, and the lack of MSVL2 is kinda liberating. Plus you can easily make an army of all girls and robots, and what's cooler than that?

That being said, Tunguska has me very excited. I would love some TO camo. The Aleph Indian (Vedhic?) Sectorial appeals, too.

So, I got Nomads for entirely budget reasons-- I knew a guy getting rid of all his stuff who sold me the Gecko kit, the Starter box with reverend healer and the Lizard kit for a combined total of 10 dollars. I figured that stuck me with Nomads. And like Loricus mentioned... I was one of a million players that just really liked the Brigada mini, which got me into CJC.

I figured i'd buy less if I went with a sectorial list and really liked a 'boot to the face' playstyle, so fireteams were my main appeal. I probably am more of a PanO player at heart, but just hate their minis (and no smoke). It wasn't until I picked up a Jaguar box and realized my entire sectorial was made of Mexican Riddick that I really fell in love with it.

Shortly afterwards I branched off into USARF because it tickles my patriotism in just the right ways. They don't feel different enough on the table though, so chances are I'll branch again in the not too distant future.

What are you doing with that Lizard ? :D

I put myself as Corregidor for both questions because that's what I play right now, I painted up the Icestorm box and most of the figures in it worked in Corregidor so I figured I would build that up first. I do hope to expand to Bakunin soon since they have a lot of the crazy stuff that drew me to Nomads in the first place, though I'm enjoying my army so far so don't regret starting with the big C

Pretending it's an Iguana. I love the lizard, favorite looking TAG in the game. Not actually a big fan of the Iguana. But S7 is S7 so no one's complained yet. I'll probably do some conversions with it in the long run so it's not just a stock Lizard.

Glad to have you aboard! Corregidor is in a weird place because they are super competitive and updated but they still seem to be unpopular. A lot of people start as them but move on to a faction with some Gimmicky link or unit. But it's before they get to experience many of the things Corregidor has that needs an experienced player to take full advantge of.

 

I think Corregidor is one of the deepest sectorials, with good features for newer players but tons and tons of advanced stuff to learn. That's important to me because most games I play and try to get it "figured out" so there's nothing left to learn and then get bored, but with Corregidor there is always a huge playstyle change around the corner.

Now I'm playing Gecko duo or 3 AD units or super hacker HI links. Last wave it was Wildcats + Iguana or Infiltrator swarm or Intruder nightmare.

 

Most people bug out for HD+ or now Riot Grrls though. Often I'm helping a new Corregdior player one month and talking to them about Bakunin the next.

I'd say YJ are my primary, I have the most models for them and played most with them (not that that's a lot, need to play more), but Nomads were my first faction. I chose Vanilla for my primary Nomad faction, but I'm very much looking forward to Tunguska, that might change when they're released.

@Loricus Corregidor is pretty great. Lots of different playstyles achievable with it. I think it has great Airborne and Smoke/MSV L2 foundation whereas Bakunin is built around around ODD and gimmicks. Both are very fun.

That's because Bakunin is more fun

You guys don't understand that the point of life is not merely to survive.

(I'm enjoying the change of pace with my 'pirate' CJC: Druze as Wildcats and Morlocks as Jags).

I still tend to the theory that Bakunin is harder to learn with than Corregidor or Vanilla. Significantly more fragile with more obvious holes.

Corregidor: to each your own, in reward and concequence.

Bakunin: same but for furries.

I am just now finishing painting my Iguana, should have it done by the time I go to sleep tonight. Hopefully the rumors about the dice favoring painted models turn out true for it, the other day it lost a firefight with a submachine gun at long range in the active turn. It wasn't a proud moment for the operator...

That ritual doesn't seem to work for me.

I've noticed a sharp upturn in luck when I burn an Intruder effigy over a bowl of goat's blood. I then dip a carved wooden TAG fetish in the blood and put it under my hat.

If still in doubt I consult the hen. If it won't eat I swap my list out.

I started Nomads because a D.E.P. Tomcat model showed up in some random completely unrelated image search on google. I love that model and looked into the game it was from, when I found a game that could usurp our GateWay drug into mini gaming WITH FREE ONLINE RULES, so we could test it with proxies, I never turned back.

I was very happy to find out that the Nomads are played in a very straightforward and wholesome manner that I like in games.  Very few tricks and deception, trusting in only their guns and grit......BAAHAHAHAA!  I LOVE deception, trolling, unfair shenanigans, and I have no real aversion to cat-girls, so I was in love.
Further digging into the factions, I found I liked the crazy Bakunin circus of death, but tended to lean on the obedience and reliability of Corregidor.  I spent way too much effort making a viable GML list [well, list with a GML...there is a difference] because robots and hacking are fantastic for all manner of terrorizing.  My list had a LOT of black with orange highlights on their unit icons...and the rest is, as they say, REDACTED.

My man! Not sure when cat girls fell out of favor XD

 

Honestly modern Bakunin is as much of a direct combat faction as you can get. Your typical Bakunin list is based around a HI link and Impetuous Warbands, with scraps spent on basic specialists with little other function.

Corregidor has rare and powerful equipment on almost every support specialists. Drop doctors, Infiltrators with Shotguns and Adhesive Launchers, or even the Moran.

Corregidor has their lowlife scrappers but just compare Jaguars and Morlocks. "Expendable combatants" are replaced with tactics and equipment at every turn.

So if you like a dirt-in-your-eyes never-play-fair tactical style I would go for Corregidor.

If you'd rather whip scum in to a respectable force you want Corregidor.

You're mistaking 'Grrls lists' with 'Bakunin' lists.

As great as Grrls are you can actually build a Bakunin list without Grrls (it's objectively worse, but playable).

Moiras aren't nearly as straightforward combat focussed. They're too fragile to not exploit sneaky-ness even in a 5-woman Core.

And once you start experimenting with Custodier Haris' you're well into 'only really effective if you play smart and sneaky' territory.

What Corregidor allows is many varied threat vectors, whereas with Bakunin you have to leverage your support to enable your primary (usually 1-3) threat vector/vectors.

Bakunin also has a significantly stronger reactive (let down only vs Smoke).

It's only going to get worse once the new sculpts drop.

Grrls really do screw with internal balance. :(

I'm sure Bakunin will get some balance improvements in the next book. They gotta get something. Corregidor has been kept modern since HSN2, Bakunin just got one wave of stuff. They gotta get touched up after seeing how they did from the last update.
