    Keep in mind Antenocitis is currently in very rough shape and could collapse in the near future.

    I think I have two lists I want to test out and take to the tournament next month!

    One spicy tanko link team list. Shinobu for messing up their strongest counter pieces to the link team. Doctor because, of course, and a hacking device cheerleader to throw up fairy dust if they have hacker threats, buff the REM and push buttons otherwise. Lu Dan and Ryuken HRL as aggressive template-wielding power pieces that can protect my deployment zone and really hurt enemy link teams.

    and a double Forward Deployment, Double Remote list. Use whichever remote is more appropriate for any given turn- the Lu Dan will wreck clumped groups or link teams and the Ru Shi will eat up their camo troops and sit in suppressive fire for the reactive turn. Two FD Ryuken-9 offer loads of mid-field board control with mines and their own suppressive fire + ODD combo, and the HRL Ryuken gives them some long-range cover. Saito, I haven't used him before, but sticking him in HD in the mid field without an infiltration roll needed is super rad for either suddenly dropping smoke to cover your advance, or to slice up their flanks if they advance.

    I think either list could do okay for Highly Classified. I'll probably decide based on what classifieds I draw. Quadrant Control probably suits the REM list better, since I can do a lot of sitting around in suppressive fire, and there's the baggage bot to punch about its weight for holding quadrants. Frostbyte is definitely for the Tanko list, since the HI can ignore the need for heaters and go wherever they like. Unmasking I might see what the terrain setup is like, but the REM list will probably be ideal for that thanks to all my mid-field deployment options, but the shinobu list could be really good as well as she's perfectly set up for going HVT hunting.

    Should I cut off that metal tab on the feet of my Infinity models? I usually do it for my GW stuff but I'm not sure with these ones.

    YMMV but they're designed to be attached using the tab. If you use the tab they'll align to the base the same way they do in the photos.

    Though you'll often need to trim off the ends of the tab and clip off some of the bottom to make it fit.

    Very few will be at a wierd angle using the tab. Even if it's a model at a weird angle, I tend to figure out where I'm putting it and forcefully cut a new tab slot rather than cut the tab off the feet. It gives such a strong anchor.

    The only time I cut tabs off feet is when I'm using resin bases.

    Anyone else as excited about O-12 as I am?

    Also that tournament earlier this month... I came like 8th out of 15ish people? Was a pretty good day with some very close games, too! Turns out Karakuri are really good and really fun right now.

    Won a $20 gift voucher which I promptly used for going halves on a Wildfire preorder with a friend of mine who is after the Shasvasti

    They look pretty awesome. Lovely minis and strong profiles. I'd be getting them except I barely have the time to play Haqq and Nomads and NA2 already!

  • AnzekayAnzekay Registered User regular
    Yeah they'll be my second army after my JSA, so I think I'll be pretty set for Infinity for ages xD

    I had been tempted by Onyx Contact Force, but I think O-12 will fit the ticket for what I was wanting from a second army!

  • SolarSolar Registered User regular
    O-12 are also a new faction, not just like a lone Sectoral, so they'll serve you well there. Could probably get some ALEPH stuff too as they'll probably overlap.

  • -Loki--Loki- Don't pee in my mouth and tell me it's raining. Registered User regular
    I made a decision long ago to stick to a single faction per game because I just don’t have time to play more.

    It’s not working.

    Were they planning on releasing a smaller, squad level version of the rules for this? Ala Kill Team or Company of Iron?

    They announced the N4 (ie 4th edition) at the GenCon panel this year, coming some time mid next year. What that actually entails is entirely unknown as of yet.

    Though to your point, isn't the game already at that point? Most list's don't end up being any more than 10-15 models. Were you thinking rolled down to like 5-10? Could just play smaller games as opposed to the standard right?

    Yeah the rules are already def squad-level.

    If you want to play with fewer models, agree to build lists with fewer points. Or just get a TAG.

    Search for Infinity Recon, it’s a set of restrictions for smaller games. Things like 150pt cap, only a single 2w model, no named characters, etc.

    So I kind of want to play O-12

    I feel bad because I'm a dirty Nomad lawbreaker and the O-12 list includes ALEPH stuff

    I guess I'm just endlessly stuck in a search for a lower cost wargame. Which I probably won't have time to actually play anyways, but that's not something that'll be fixed anytime in the next 20 years.

    WarCry might be a real answer. Designed by the same people as Shadespire, which is the first actual game GW's released since 7E of WHFB.

    I keep seeing models in pictures of the game that don't currently seem to be available on their site. Do they regularly remove shit from factions?

    Nevermind, I'm just really bad at browsing their store.

    Other question though, is there a good resource on how list building works? And a faction breakdown with "Here is a model, here are its stats"? Cause otherwise its just a bigass list of names with nothing to really go on.

    The army builder on the corvus belli website is pretty comprehensive.

    You can get it to filter by troop types, such as light, medium heavy troops, as well as their skills, for instance show you which troops can be hackers or lieutenants, troop costs, set it to check if your army list is legal, set the army point limit, etc...

    It will provide links to skills, show weapon stats and ranges and so on.

    You can get it to save your army lists and provide all this info.

    It is pretty amazing before you take into accounts it’s free.

    There's an official app for that.

    https://infinitythegame.com/resources/tools/infinityarmy

    Which also has links directly to the rules wiki which makes it really easy to look stuff up as needed when list building or in game.
    http://infinitythewiki.com/en/Main_Page

    *edit*
    It takes a little bit of doing to figure out your way around, how it validates lists and all that stuff, but it's pretty good in the first place, and being free makes it all the better.

    Yeah, I've seen the app, but I guess none of the available entries really represent anything to me?

    Like I get what all the stats are supposed to represent, but fusilier has 9 entries. Can I just take 5 HMG fusiliers? What do their models look like? Do I get benefits for all my units being from the same sectoral? Can I take a mix of sectorials? I'm not sure if I missed something, but I feel like a lot of that was skipped in the rule book.

    Also, due to the variety and not particularly self-explanatory appearance of so many weapons, there's no strong component of 'if your model has weapon X it MUST be this gun on this model.'

    The rules could be organized better. When I got into Infinity, I'd been exposed to it by other people playing for a while, so there were multiple times when I was asking 'wait, I know X is a thing, why are we now going into Y, because X totally should have come up already.' Only to find X later.

    That is one of the nice things about having an officially supported rules wiki, especially when you need to look up something on the fly, like, 'this guy has a mutlispectral visor 1. What's the difference between that and MSV 3?' Or various skills and abilities.

    Every time I see this thread I'm reminded of how desperately I want to play Infinity and how completely uninterested anyone in my state is to play it. 4th edition seems interesting, I kinda feel like they got the rules done right this time?

    @Brody This game has all the loveliness of being based on a homebrew 3rd edition D&D game, while also being privileged to have some of the densest multi-layered rules of any TT game I've ever read (and I've read a lot), and did we mention it's spread out among several books? Each with their own errata? Not to mention the spotty translation, of course. That said it's still a brilliant game with a ton going for it, and it's extremely unique and engaging.

    Sectorials have their own army lists that are limited to specific units in exchange for unique options, higher AVA, and Link Teams. 'Vanilla' lists get to mix and match the best stuff, but has few/no/bad Link Teams. Looking at Nomads' sects, you've got Tunguska with nasty heavy infantry links, cheap repeaters (things that let you hack from a distance), and the best+cheapest hacker in the game. Bakunin gets very strong warbands (guys that move quickly but can't take cover), very affordable links, and great hackers. Corregidor offers loads of advance deployment, camouflage, and dirt-cheap links. Vanilla Nomads get everything those three sectorials offer, but no link teams.

    Each unit has different profiles, each with differing, gear, or abilities. You can take as many of each or any profile you want, up to the AVA. SWC is another limiting factor; loading up your best weapons on weak profiles is pretty bad in practice (the difference between two wounds with three armor, and one wound with zero armor is HUGE), but it is a good way to spend extra SWC.

    @Carnarvon whereabouts are you located? Even though I'm in aus, from reading the WGC Infinity page on FB it seems there are quite a few people spread all over the US.
    I got back into the game early last year after about a 4 year break and have been really enjoying it, to the point where I have organised several local tourneys and am part of a group organising a 2 day tournament a couple of weeks before PAX Aus.
    Came 17th out of 70 at the Australian satellite tournament in January with JSA and I've been playing Tohaa most recently - Rasail are just crazy good!

    @Brody I HIGHLY recommend getting a demo of the game. It is the sort of game that really benefits from playing it rather than reading the rules. Especially with the ARO mechanism, it's so different to most other wargames out there.

    My gaming group is finally getting into this beyond the tutorials, playing some 150 and 200 pt games

    The various jamming and hacking status conditions seem incredibly brutal. The fact that a hacker from half a board away, or a throwaway dogged 5 point model, can inflict Isolation on powerful models is bad enough, but you can't get rid of that status without an engineer? And then there's EM attacks that just eliminate the model altogether unless an engineer can fix it.

    It seems hugely risky to invest in expensive TAGs or HI because of this, especially since there don't seem to be all that many engineer models (and they're expensive too, especially if you start giving them little helper bots).

    Well, they can only hack you from half a board away through a repeater, which you will know is there, so at least you can plan for it!
    TAGs are certainly tough to get the best out of, but when they work, they can be brutal.
    We had a 2 day tournament here over the weekend, and TAGs definitely seem to be making a resurgence in our local area anyway, and the extra Tactical Awareness order now in season 11 definitely helps. I got murderised by a Marut, though I did manage to get rid of a Sphinx quite successfully.

    I’ve played against it a bunch, it’s really strong. The main dude is vulnerable but is a super cheap order with counterintelligence. The puppets are super underpriced for 2 wound burst 2 aros (particularly because losing them doesn’t impact your order pool) and can do ok work on their own as well.
