Darrell takes a look at the O-Yoroi Kidobutai TAG for the Yu Jing Faction of Infinity.
Great looking TAG. I love the bases as well but I am afraid they might be a bit ‘too high for convenient use’. Is there an easy way to make him wield the katana in his hand?
The MAS Urban Rubble bases are about double the height of a normal 25mm slot base. It isn’t that bad but it is noticeable.
It is a beautiful TAG. I don’t have one of these babys yet but it’s on my wishlist for my Yu-Jing. I’m still finishing my Guijia squadron TAG which is another fantastic kit. As Sathuli said, it would be nice to ‘samurai’ stance the oyo with katana in hand. I’ll perhaps give that a go when I buy this model. Big fan of resin basing – things like line of sight during skirmishes etc are secondary to the final look of my models. A great base finishes off a model and is always worth the investment consiering how much time and effort goes into painting it. Spoil yourself, and spoil your creations!
Thanks for this. You get a much better picture of the model with this video. Move to Christmas wishlist, check.
wow, didn’t realise PP bought Corvus Belli.
Love the model, i intend on starting a JSA group next year and this is very near the top of my wishlist!
Have all my infinity minis on micro art bases, and while they are a little bit higher, they do look badass!
I’m happy to say I own this awesome TAG! The good thing is for JSA players you can have AVA 2 in you’re sectorial army! That gives me a good excuse to buy another one. I have put it together as a dry-run and found no probs, but you do have to look at the box pictures to get a really good idea where what goes, I had a few problems at first figuring out where all the pieces go.
Oh and for first time Infinity players, there are actual game markers on the flaps of each end of the box, and these are usually for the mini that they come with, but you can use them for any others as well. The point being PLEASE don’t throw out the boxes ’cause they contain markers for the game, plus the front artwork and the pic at the back are for you’re own inspiration, to paint like the Infinity masters do! That’s my plan.
Infinity is an awesome miniatures range and game! I’ve been following them since the beginning and they just get better and better every year! The free downloads are a gem for people who don’t want to buy there rule/expansion books! I’ve got both books even though. Keep up the good work CB!
Thanks for the great review of the O-Yoroi! Can’t wait till I get my hands on it in my next mini orders.
One the best looking TAG’s so far, although it does have a run for its money with the Dragoe.
What did you used to prime with, it looks really good…
Most likely black or some other dark hue ink. Metal models tend to be a bit “shiny” on video and pictures, so it’s hard to make out the detail. Dark ink helps the details to “pop out” a bit.
