It’s that moment of the month where we get to check out what’s new from Infinity for the end of February and the beginning of March. There are some fantastic pieces once again to bolster your armies with so check them out and tell us your favourites…
Devil Dog Teams
The 2nd Assault Battery of the USAMC with Ariadna gets themselves a new unit which is no stranger to hard work out in the field. These are some hard as nails troopers who leap into the fray looking for a good scrap. Here’s what one of them had to say…
“That chiming sound you hear isn’t rain, its projectiles. Outside, a hell has been unleashed made of fire and bullets. You call it war. I call it duty. Today is a work day for me. I’m going out into that chaos of death to destroy the enemy, because I must do it for my country and for the Corps.
It doesn’t matter how bad it gets, my post is on the front line of combat. A battle cannot be won from a safe position. They don’t give you the Purple Heart for staying inside a landing craft. Medals mean victories and victories are achieved by giving everything. I will not say: “Yes, I will die for my country”, instead I will stubbornly insist that the enemy die for his.
And for that I will use all the weapons the Marine Corps has given me and even my own claws and teeth if necessary. I know that every time I enter combat Death is coming for me. But He will have to be quick and skillful if He wants to catch me. Because I am a warrior. I am one of the few and the proud. I am an USAriadna Marine.”
Armand “Le Muet” Freelance Killer
The Mercenaries get themselves a proper deadly killer this time around with a penchant for delivering a bullet right between the eyes at long range. This model was an ITS prize at one point and now will be able to take to your own battlefield to demonstrate his skills.
“All you need to know is that you are one of the most dangerous individuals in the Sphere. You are a professional and a virtuoso, and your impeccable skills are on offer for anyone with the money to pay for them.
You also happen to love music, and you are the only person in the universe who thinks you can half decently play that blasted harpset you take with you everywhere…”
Hector – Homerid Champion
ALEPH build on the power of the Steel Phalanx with this mighty warrior. Keeping with the traditional of Greek mythology running through this faction he comes with a rather classic looking sword and a wonderful Tinbot who is trying to follow in his masters footsteps…
“Nobody could argue against this nomination: not just for his track record but also for his own skills. The way he carries himself, his firm glance and toughness convey self-confidence and an inner strength forged in battle after battle, as if he were an ancient warrior far from home.
However, it is his charisma and intelligence when devising tactics and putting them into practice that has helped him earn his position as a leader of the Steel Phalanx. Hector is capable of analyzing any possible situation that arises on the battlefield instantly, and is completely relentless when the time comes to engage the enemy in combat. He is the true warrior/strategist that ALEPH needs to destroy the EI.”
The Nomads head out on the trail for the Corregidor Jurisdictional Command with these new Bandits. Invisible spectres when at work they protect the community on the road from threats both large and small. The shamans of each tribe choose from the young to host this guardian spirit .
In reality behind all the mysticism these are secretly trained agents with a penchant for using narcotic herbs which will imbue the man with a sense of invincibility. It’s pretty awesome to see the High Sci-Fi of Infinity delving into this degree of myth and legend with their factions.
Su-Jian – Immediate Action Unit
You saw this model earlier in the week as it serves the Yu Jing and the Imperial Service within it. Known as “The Swift Sword” this is a tactical and technical jewel in the crown of the faction.
As you can see it has two modes or as they call it, variable morphology. Would you prefer your IAU being in combat mode or mobility mode?
Which is your favourite model from this selection?
