Time for another exclusive preview from the guys over at Infinity! This month we have the Unidron Batroids, a box of four miniatures covering all weapon options for these badass warriors of the Combined Army.
For weapon load out we have a ton of options, including the K1 Combi Rifle, the Spitfire, the Plasma Sniper Rifle, or the always devastating Missile Launcher!
We’ve even been sent some really cool back story for these guys, giving us a bit of flavour for the E.I’s newest fighters:
“When the E.I requires soldiers, it does not bother to recruit them. It harvests them.
The bulk of the Ur armed forces that the E.I used to jumpstart its campaign of conquest was comprised of Batroids, techno-organic units designed for action in hostile environments. In the Ur culture, the use of Batroids as operatives predates even the creation of the Evolved Intelligence, but the E.I has been able to use them as a tactical resource to great effect. These silicon-based/carbon-based hybrids are cultivated in rapid-growth plantations using a monitored pseudo-intelligent substrate. Their mind-structure is based on the neural pathways of the Ruaria, animals bred by ancient Ur as pets and hunting companions, but also for war and exploration. Ruaria were highly appreciated for their courage and unwavering loyalty.”
