Re: Thinking about starting PanOceania

It sounds like your friend might be the best advisor on balance - the different starting packs have different point costs - which determines what engagements you can take-on straight out of the box. (Most starters are around 120, some of the sectorials go as high as 250). But let's assume your frien...

Meeplemart Game Center Toronto

Hey Everyone, For a long time I've been looking for a place to play Infinity and the guys and gals at Meeplemart appear to have come through with their new Game Center. As of this week (Mar 27th) Thursdays are infinidays at the game center - they have 36 feet of table space and from 5pm to 10pm it's...

Re: Infinity Tohaa Link team and Lt special order question

Enomatarchus groups can only be reformed by the Lt mid-game and only around himself. Keep in mind that your other Enomatachus groups don't break when the Enomatarchus skill possessor dies. Sectorial armies (steel phalanx) who have units with the Enomatarchus skill cannot form regular fire-teams and ...

Re: Infinity Tohaa Link team and Lt special order question

Yeah, a little. While the Enomatarchus groups are unlimited (like the Tohaa Triads), they require one 'officer' per fireteam. So a Tohaa Lt. can pick 3 guys on the other side of the board and say "You three are a triad, go!" while the Enomatarchus must have an 'Officer' (i.e. - someone with the enom...

Re: Infinity Tohaa Link team and Lt special order question

Ah, yes, I'm sorry; I didn't know tohaa Lt. Can use their special order to form other triads... That should be listed under Lt. Special order rules.... I think, technically, the rules state that he would break his own triad, but it seems the spirit of the rules is to allow the tohaa player to form a...

Re: Infinity Tohaa Link team and Lt special order question

Hey Threeround, I am not a Tohaa player and I don't have a lot of experience with link teams, but I hate to see a question go unanswered! So here is what I think: You can never use your Lt. order on anything but your Lt. . If, as with your example, you have two triads, one with an Lt. and one withou...

Re: Another New to Infinity

@Peregrin I appreciate that there's someone else buying 'demo' armies to hook their friends :) Also, I just wanted to say: +1 for the vanilla army choice! One of the things that I love about Infinity is that it really doesn't matter what your bring to the table, the game is so varied and balanced th...

Re: Another New to Infinity

Hey there, first: welcome to Infinity! Both JSA and Aconte are popular armies, and both have a lot of merits. My personal opinion would be to look at what you want to get out of Infinity - I personally collect 300pt. armies from several factions so I can play with different styles and offer teams to...

Re: Home made paper craft terrain

That stuff looks pretty awesome! I could totally see making a board divided by a wall like that with buildings on either side - like a post-war Berlin; very cyberpunk, very aleph vs nomads :)

Re: What books do I need to buy?

The Quick answer: None. all the rules are free on the Infinity website including an extensive wiki/faq where you can literally type in any stat/weapon/rule and it will produce the answer. In addition, Corvus Belli provides a free army builder that has all the army lists for every faction and sectori...

Re: Infinity Terrain

Very cool! Can you post a pic with a mini for scale - I'm just curious how big you built those - what did you use for material?

Nice work!

Re: New to infinity

I feel so left out when I play vanilla factions! :) I just want to be able to bring imperial agents AND ninjas to the party or Tuaregs and Lasiqs.... I'm a sucker for design by look - I know the Khawarijs are way underpowered but he looks so awesome bouncing accross the board - right before a link t...

Re: Infinity Terrain

The Systema Gaming stuff looks amazing, the first I'd heard of it was the recent Bat-rep - I really like the raised platform systems - especially if you build a foam play board to go with it, I could totally see a moon-base table build around the terrain! It reminds me of the Warsenal stuff but a li...

Re: New to infinity

Hey Luke, It is NEVER a bother! I love talking about infinity! Anything you want to know, please ask! About your AVA question, that represents actual models - Infinity is different from games like warhammer 40k in that you aren't mobilizing an army or a battlefront - you are completing special ops m...

Re: New to infinity

Hey Luke! Welcome to the world of infinity! Before I say anything else, I want to encourage your patience, it can be a little overwhelming at first, but if you stick with it, I think you'll find its a whole new level of rewarding miniature experience. So let's get to your questions: To start playing...
