First to pour one out for all my fellow MAF players. It’s been an honor playing fair and honest infinity with you lot. We will make it through the these dark times ahead.
>>82940818If MAF is indeed going OOP your models are about to skyrocket in rarity and value
>>82940886Don't forget they will also increase in price thanks to rising prices of tin! Your collection is now a reserve of precious metal!
>>82941001Broke: investing in stocks Woke: investing in cryptos and NFTsBespoke: amassing precious metals thanks to your toy soldiers collection
>>82941565>investing in fancy URLs
>>82940886>skyrocketKeep telling yourself that. Secondary market is chokefull of cheap infinity now, dammit.
>>82940724Reposing based false advertising.
The new universal Infinity gf.
>>82943638I think it's great and already preordered one, but I can't help but think if they didn't have the tactical rock like the old pose her sword wouldn't need to stick below the base.
>>82943783Actually I guess I am wrong, the old one goes below the base too.
>>82943815This is a rare update where the model is just like, same idea but a straight upgrade.
>>82940818Now I'm seriously considering getting a MAF force, well played CB
>>82943638they hid her butt she's unfortunately a downgrade, even if I like the upgraded boots
>>82944085Look at the thighs man.
>>82943632I think that's going to be a legal issue in most countries.
>>82943865I was hoping they would do that for Daktari, but alas, not this time.Maybe we will see the catgirl back as a promotional pinup model (HSN4 preorder bonus?).
I really dig the LE Guijia. Thinking of picking up one of the new boxes just to roll the dice at getting one.
>>82944723No it is not, kek.
>>82944781I hope so. People don't actually mind cheesecake models as long as they are not the ONLY options. If CB dropped combat heels and did some equal opportunity full-on coomerism they'd probably come out ahead overall.
>>82944894Assuming it that model isn't in the box, the Australian consumer watchdog is going to take it off the shelves once someone informs them.
>>82944839Retarded choice. One of the worst profiles in game.
>>82944085>they hid her butt she's unfortunately a downgradeThats N4 for you. Just look at Valeria WOKEoz.
>>82944894It absolutely is here in Australia. Don't you have consumer protections in your country?
>>82945056> if its bad in game you can not like how it looks!!!Gee I wonder why this game stays so fucking small time
>>82944839>The return of mewchwarrior dark ageAre you some kind of gachabrain?>>82946520>Responding to baitCome on man.
>>82943632Ouch. I hope CB realizes before those boxes ship.
I heard in passing on another thread that infinity has started doing plastic miniatures, is this true?
>>82943632So, can I get all the other models from beyond code one kaldstrom in new release sets?
>>82947002Only the bigger ones, and it is not like plastic you are used to.
>>82947002Monstrous profiles and mechanical units, with luck they'll start doing more.
>>82947089like the tags? and what kind of plastics are we talking?
>>82947105It's thermo plastic. Do look it up on youtube, plastic infinity minis. There's a guy on there that breaks it down pretty well, I dunno his name but he's possibly Australian?
>>82947105It's like a pencil eraser. Holds detail okay but extremely hard to work with.
>>82947105Eventually the new TAGs will be, the only current siocast minis off the top of my head are a REM(spider robot) and a manbear werewolf. The mini line is still 99% metal. The thermoplastic does not work with plastic glues, you need to use cyanoacrylate.
>>82944913>If CB dropped combat heelsPlease kill yourself.
>>82947149>Holds detail okay but extremely hard to work with.Not precisely accurate. You can make precise cuts easier than with metal, as ultimately this plastic is more forgiving of mistakes than metal. I don't think pencil eraser is the correct term either, but it is a hybrid material that has rigidity and slight malleability that is unlike standard GW plastic kits. It has a subtle bend to it, but it isn't boardgame shit tier pvc either.
>>82943610That's not how you spell chock-full ESL-anon
>>82943815Damn her legs are thin
Do you have a preferred battle mat for playing on? I kind of want to buy an an urban theme mat, but getting one with predefined streets on it feels restrictive.
>>82950581Yeah, it is restrictive. Go for something less intrusive, like some concrete IMO
>>82949322N1 is from before CB could afford to feed their models.
>>82947594>I don't think pencil eraser is the correct term eitherSure thing, shill.
>>82950789True. I've seen their pre-Icestorm headquarters. *shudder*
>>82944975What model is it missing?
>>82951190He is right, it's not at all like a rubber eraser
>>82951330I bet ESL-kun has never used xgp8ga rubber eraser in his life. Or pencil, for that matter.
>>82946520You can go back to AoS, scrub.
>>82947102>with luck they'll start doing more>pencil eraser-tier S2 minis with metal pricesLike a good catholic boys.
>>82951358More probably he uses some kind of pointy rock.
>>82947369Wedge heels like seibah's are kino
>>82947102That's nice. Lets see some TAG+'s
>>82952523>Lets see some TAG+'sWe've already got the S9 Megalodron (supposedly being updated to N4 at some point) and the Megabeasts.
>>82951317Spitfire. That is in the beyond box, nota un the Vargars one
>>82952596They are not the same plastic. Megalodron and all the Tag Raid plastic are PVC.At the time, only Bearpode, Vostok, Zondbots and Fiddler's turrets are made with Siocast
>>82943638Dao is THE Chinese infantry sword but CB only gave them to the merc instead of any YJ units. I really don't understand.Also, no YJ unit uses a Guan Dao.
>>82953130The Yuan-Yuan are a reference to Chinese pirates, right? It's probably a nod to that
>>82953130>I really don't understand.It's almost like they don't give a single fuck or something. Weird, huh?
>>82953130Swords in YJ seem to be usually status symbols and thus Jians and its derivatives. I don't think you couldn't fit daos in somewhere, but no unit comes to mind as an obvious choice. Maybe shaolins.
>>82954031Rock and Stone, sectorial plebs
>take Triphammer>throw +4 ARM from the Booty chart>ARM11>get possessed
>>82954031Wasn't vanilla also ment to represent shattered forces making a stand, specialists using mercs as deniable assets/easy scapegoats, and false flag operations?
>>82954388>specialists using mercs as deniable assets/easy scapegoats, and false flag operationsWarcors are pushing the narrative that Infinity was actually a moba capeshit from day one.
>>82954533No more in the line of:>chief, we found this wreck of an uparmored TAG at the base that was attacked last monday. Pilot was a remotly controllee throwaway LHost. Same with the blokes in the unmerked fusilier uniforms the base defence personell managed to eliminate. Cameras have been scrambled though. The artichoke though, armand le muet they call him, is a known and hardened mercenary, no way that he talks who hired him. Corpse 7 here got facial surgery to look like that aristea retard wild bill. Probably a fanatical, well, fan."
>>82951190"shill""trans""dead game"Got anything else in your vocab?>>82951500That implies a Neanderthal-esque mental capability... roll back a couple thousand more years.
>>82951190>Sure thing, shill.When I got my beyond crimson stone box I was amazed at how wrong you guys were for complaining about gummie eraser material. This Remote's cleanup took me a fraction of the time that metal demands, without tenderizing my finger tips in the process. I was able to assemble without horrendous gaps, all in one sitting and with less waste material to sweep up after. Thermal plastic is significantly easier to chop up for modifications, and with little more than a sharp knife. Imagine, it doesn't require a razor saw and twenty minutes of intense hacking to change the way an arm bends or to remove a weapon feature to model a new one. No, it took you three measured cuts from your scalpel and some filing; that's it.Metal is fantastic for detail and model preservation through table use, but absolutely shit for modification and assembly. CB knows this and historically didn't care, that was until cost of materials threatened to pull them under. Now they're innovating a new manufacturing method and have actually produced an alternative solution that satisfies metal detail grogs and converters alike. It's win/win.
>>82955539I've only had experience with the turret bots that came with Fiddler, although one of them was in two pieces when I opened it the detail was still very much there with very little knife work needed. Another person at my FLGS just picked up the bear and I got to see that out of the box. It too looked REALLY good. I'm fine with either metal or plastic, they both have ups and downs.
>>82954210Yeah I guess that's true. Jian is seen as more of "the gentleman's weapon" so of course the units that are shown using melee weapons would use a jian and the Yuan Yuan, a merc would use a dao.I hope they'd ass some elite unit that uses a Guan Dao though. I think that's also one of the more iconic chinese weapon. Also, YJ have Sun Tzu, but not Guan Yu who is still worshipped as a deity nowadays.
>>82940818First I’ve heard about it, what’s going on with morats?
>>82956156They are being rotated our of production
>>82956156Unfortunately the MAF is going OOP possibly with a revamp in looks a little later on. Unless they are CA's Frenchies.Doesn't mean they aren't playable. Just means the figures are going to be hard to get for a bit. I think you have till April?
>>82956332Be strong my ape brothers, look upon our shas allies and the beautiful transformation they received, our time will come. not that MAF needs it
>>82956615I don't care if it isn't lore friendly. Please give me unmasked morat qts.
>>82955693I pinned my tag to it's base and it still breaks off more than I would like. A model that isn't 5 pounds would be nice to have.
>>82957070I’m hoping we get female versions of some of the troopers like yaos and rodoks, it wouldn’t be too hard to update the lore to make it line up
I wish CB just previewed models when they actually went up for preorder.
>>82955539Utter horseshit. I bought a bear and posted pics weeks ago. The material is incredibly difficult to work with, and just like a pencil eraser leaves little flakes and burrs everywhere you try to clean it up. It took twice as long to clean up as a metal model would and there are details like mold line along the top of the gun that will never look correct.
>>82956615Shouldve bought into monkeycoin when you couldve
>>82940724is that a real image
>>82960791No, asians aren't real
>>82960791I think the snowflakes and Christmas trees may be edited
>>82960830>>82960822I just need to know if I'll still be a weeb if I buy this
>>82960791The box looks edited in.
>>82959992>and just like a pencil eraser leaves little flakes and burrs everywhere you try to clean it up.You can't clean these like you can hard plastic or even metal. The burrs occur when you begin to mangle the surface by scraping it with a rough tool. One or multiple tiny pieces of plastic end up still connected to the larger body, and if you do not use a controlled sharp cut, it will "fold" around your blade when it is slivered. This can be mitigated by making fewer cuts and fine sanding after you file an area. I wish to note, the beautiful thing you can do with thermal plastic is that you can apply a measured and direct heat source in order to melt away the mold lines rather than cut them off. I haven't done so myself yet, but I've heard a soldering iron is the perfect tool for this job, or possibly a woodburning kit (which is the same thing with different tips). I am going to experiment with this technique once I get my Polaris team, as there simply wasn't much work that needed to be done on the remote in the beyond box.
>>82961869Do these kits come with any sprues that you can test your tools on?
>>82961020Of course you're still a weeb if you buy an asian gf.
>>82961919they have nubby bits but no sprue. I wish they included sprue, I want to experiment with this stuff thing is, what ever they don't want to give us can be melted down again. It's reported to "flow like water" when fully heated.
>>82964775In theory you can grind it down and use it again in another miniature. It's like metal in that regard
>>82961869>melt away the mold lines rather than cut them off.That sounds legitimately awesome
>>82961869I used a brand new xacto knife, burrs everywhere as you can see. And now you are saying you have to sand which sounds suspiciously like more work than metal to me.I would expect a soldering iron to just melt it.
>>82966451This pic kills the shill.
>>82966451Man you won the lottery on that bear, mine is crisp as hell and no mold lines around there at all
>>82966451Imagine if they used soicast for tactical rocks.First, it wouldn't matter if the cast was off on them, it's just rubble. And second it would mean the model itself would be separate from it, letting us put something other under their feet.
>>82966451Ya butchered it, mate.
>>82966451>>82947594An extra pic for fun.
>>82966451Looks like you ruined it.
>>82966817>first I erase this text>then I erase your list
>>82951330Meant for this one. Derp.>>82966817
>>82966817>that shotgunLiteral soi.
Look all I am saying is, if Corvus Belli is selling you plastic, then, perhaps, you shouldn't be paying metal prices anymore.
>>82967215I'd rather pay a lazy spaniard than uncle Xi.Nothing against recasters, but this way the money stays in the economy.
>>82967215>Corvus Belli is selling you plasticIt's not plastic, it's literal cellophane. And yes, supporting recasters is based, but I prefer slavs.
Oh look, it's the real cover for the vargr box.
>>82968224Only retards actually thought the previous one was going to be sold Jesus the Betatroopers had Tohaa logos in the first photoshop
>>82967215I only buy recasts anyway. Waiting for my Yaoxie Remotes and Hac Tao from the Ukrainians.
>>82967215I'm planning on buying some TAGs from AliExpress, hopefully it not too warped.
>>82968349I really hope TOs ban you from tournaments...
>>82968498There's literally no way to tell. I only buy proxies for GW stuff but I'll either get second hand or recast CB minis too if they'd otherwise be in their shitty new material.
>LARPing on /tg/
>>82968498I don't play in tourneys anyway. Even if I do, there's only a very small difference between the real thing and a recast. After painting, no one will ever see the difference.
>>82968680>>82968504Spot the ex-WFB players.
>>82966817It's almost as if graphite can be removed from paper by semi firm material rubbing against it. My thumb is also an eraser.
>>82969456Why, yes, how can you tell?
So first game tomorrow. Any advice? Ramah vs. Combined Army.
Going over some lists for a local event, and trying to get one ready for Biotechvore. Can I get some confirmation that if I deploy a model in Hidden Deployment state inside my normal DZ, that it won't have to test against the plague unless it reveals?
>>82971982If it's in your deployment zone you don't need to roll at all.
>>82971982>>82972003Sorry I misunderstood. Yeah you don't need to roll for the biotechvore until you reveal.
>>82971213SEXY I can't wait to buy these and chop shop them to make my own remotes. Thank you, based Carlos, for making that happen with your hard work. Are these things in plastic too, outta curiosity?
>>82972568No they are metal. They said that in different streams.
>>82971213God shows inordinate love for beetles.
>>82971213I'm curious about how eavy metal style would look on some of the cb stuff. Probably better for some minis once you can see detail sharper
>>82972568I can't tell if these are cool or just goofy. Weird battletech vibes I guess.
>>82972568harumph! good show old boy
>>82943638I want her to sit on me with those thicc legs. >>82955539>>82955693I think with time they'll get better. They have to or they'll lose customers.
Missing options for MO.Pulled out my MO starter set to actually get started.Looking at it app it seems like some options are gone.Are magister knights just gone?Teutonic Knights no longer have combi rifle option or order sergeant's no multisniper?Could I run the combirifle Teutonic as light shotgun?Sniper order sergeant's as a corsier?
>>82976499Magisters merged into Teutonic knight and now are a single troop.As long as the figure have the same silouethe, any figure can be any other figure
>>82976054This is exactly what I mean kek>>82976499Magisters and Teuts are the same unit now. Certain Order Seargants like the TO MSR one became MO exclusive Trinitarians.You can proxy anything as long as you have the correct base size, just make sure you and your opponent know what is what.
>>82976704>>82976499OK thanks.That makes things easier.
>>82972568They said the designer and their production guy will decide what material to use. If a certain sculpt cannot work in siocast they'll go with metal.So no, those are still in pewter despite being kinda bulky REMs.
>>82979106I see. What can not be done in plastic will surely change as the gain experience with the production process. I'm personally looking forward to solider size thermo plastic kits.
>>82979874It should work pretty well. I guess we'll see what the future brings
>>82981390>April Action Pack is all-siores Acon
>>82979874Fuck I hope not.
So I talked to my distributor this week, and they said that CB told them that MAF was being cycled out for something that Combined Army players would be "very excited" for. Does anyone know anything else?
>>82982303>something that Combined Army players would be "very excited" for.This is baiting Exrah, but I'd be wholly unsurprised if it were actually Sygmaa.
>>82982335Either way I'd be pretty happy desu. New Exrah would be COOM status though.
>>82982303It's going to be a Morat revamp like they did with MO.
>>82982303Sygmaa, duh.>>82982552Postironic shitposting is boring as fuck.
>>82982335Exrah are the bugs yeah? Didn't they get squatted?
>>82982697Not squatted, no. They still exist in the lore.
>>82982697Yes and no. The models got removed, and the fluff has the Exrah Concordat being declared extermination targets by the EI, but the same book (N3 core) added the Commissariat, a different business group who were on a probation period and so only allowed to field their troops against the Concordat. If the Exrah were to come back, the fluff would be that the probation period has ended and the Commissariat's Merc-Operators can join the CA proper.They've slowly been creeping back into the fluff in varying amounts. The WCS Raxora from the second living campaign was an Exrah ship, the MEgalodron was being moved around by Exrah ships, and the N4 Umbra fluff section is written from the perspective of one Exrah talking to another. And of course they were in the RPG stuff.
>>82979874As long as they're one piece...god I miss one-piece models of the yesterdecade.
>>82982303More shas of course
>>82983122This. Boring as fuck.
>>82982552Probably in one or two years
Anyone working on anything here? I'm testing to see if this makes a decent Tankhunter ML. Backpack looks like a bitch to make it fit, but I want to get those spare missiles on there.
>>82982303Could actually be Exrah, that would be cool
>>82983699>Tankhunter MLWhat for?
>>82984030Cause I thought it would look neat.
>>82982685>Postironic shitposting is boring as fuck.I read that as "positronic shitposting" and wondered for a good long moment what you meant. I need another coffee.
>>82984338I read the same thing first time around. I thought it was some ALEPH reference.
>>82984338You are not alone
>>82984338Enough Asimov for you today Anon! Go to bed already and no reading secretly under your blanket this time.
>>82983699I saw a guy who resin printed the arm and weapon. Looked pretty neat.
>>82986138But if I keep on reading, tomorrow is postponed and i dont have to wake up to go to my soul-crushing office job
>>82983095When was the last of the one-piece models, anyway? I think it's pretty recent, I'm sure one of the newish S1 bots was one-piece.
>>82982335>ExrahHas there been a single picture of an Exrah since the N2-era model photos and Caskuda wallpaper?
>>82990128not so long ago... wardriver from coldfront?
>>82986729I took it off a Line Kazak. I'll probably sacrifice that whole box to the god of conversions and pick-up another LineKaz box later on.I imagine the ML is probably more useful in a core link, but I just love the TH chicks with the heavy weapons.
Does Infinity have a faction that is like the downtrodden masses, making do with what they've got? Like Minmatar from EvE?
>>82971213Might take them as Probots for my OSS. Not gonna buy those janky tricycles, even if their design is pretty special.
>>82992056Fluff wise probably Corregidor, gameplaywise something from Ariadna or Haqislam. But I don’t know those factions well enough for a recommendation.
>>82992056as >>82992111 said Ariadna is probably the closest. They are the lowest tech faction and all other factions are all always trying to steal their macguffin metal. Japan is also this in a way with their war against Space China.Haqq is lower tech in some ways, but also has a huge amount of sway due to controlling the macguffin material that controls resurrection technology. So I wouldn't say they are downtrodden.
>>82991927>but I just love the TH chicks with the heavy weapons.Yeah it's a nice aesthetic
>>82992056Nomads imo, they are all about rebellion against authority and repurposing equipment and weapons
>>82992056Yes, but who are the Amarr of Infinity? Faith and Sovereignty over all else, but also a little slave labor never hurt any empire.
>>82994580I'd say either YJ or PanO
>>82992056CJC is space labour politics
>>82995074PanO feels like it can be the dystopian capitalist side of the Caldari or the religious Amarr with Military Orders.
>>82995228Oh yeah PanO is definitely Caldari
>>82996723fun concept, absolute dogshit model. I did like the wings tho, i wish we could go back to including the acetate sheets with models.
>>82996723Plastic wings a shit, that's why CB only photoshopped them onto the front image and didn't even bother with doing so on the in-play photo on the back.
>>82990128Not sure about peripheral models, but it's been along while since even the basic LI came in 1 piece.
>>82996783>photoshoppedCb was full of shit even back then, huh?
It's not a bad model, fits the theme of insects well, and is in line with most models that came out -back then-, and chock full of small detail. Of course, compared to today's models, it's pretty bad, but so is most of the N1-N2 range.
>>82957814mass morat feminisation when
>>82997914Who says you don't already have female morats?
>>82967215>>82968405I am really bad at finding that sort of obscure stuff. Can you give a hint on how to find one? So far managed to find only the WMPOWERSTORE whatever, and there are only 3 tags there, neither of which are of a great interest to me to be honest.
>>82997875>Of course, compared to today's models, it's pretty bad, but so is most of the N1-N2 rangeShut your whore mouth!
>>82997875It aged pretty well tbdesu
>>83000706>>83000354Damn right. When you compare having to manually sculpt a model by hand, and what you can achieve using digital sculpting, the end result is night and day. Machine precision is a thousand times better than human hands.Suck it.
>>83000766No, you dumdum. While you could digitally model microscopic details, those A) aren't reproduced by the printing and casting processesB) are smaller than the customers want or need.You can make good models by hand or by CAD, the things where CAD beats hand sculpts and why they're preferred by manufacturers today are speed, flexibility and consistency.
>>82996723Rules would be fine, Nomad players whine like bitches though.
>>82967663>>82967990>>82968349Why do you do this CB are not GW they dont deserve this.
>>82996723I think its just a trashy paint job with bad colour choices.
>>83002055cause anon is a Good Guy, if he can't have it exactly his way, it's everyone elses' fault and he will punish them! Even if it's something as silly as buying recasts toy soldiers.
>>82997875It does have a major design flaw with the torso-abdomen joint. The joining piece is too small for the hole, so you can tilt the torso to either side, but you can only actually assemble the model with it tilted to the left so it can clear the right knee.I also refuse to believe anybody actually fielded this thing on the 40mm base it comes with, since the hand barely fits on a 55mm one and even CB look to have used a 60mm base on the shop one.
>>82996723The Void Op is the best of the Exrah models.

>>83008493Agreed, but I dig the color-scheme. I also would like to note it is pretty obvious when you look at minis that were painted a decade ago compared to the hobby at large today.

>>83008463Base extenders were a wild time
>>83012525Rules are fine if you actually played. I've done half a dozen tournaments with 8+ people in past year, and no faction or play style has dominated. Way better than the GW, asoiaf, mcp or legion events I attended in the same time frame. Note that the last 2 are so fucked I sold all my shit.Sculpts are equivalent, some better, some worse. They have always paid homage to characters, and it often makes sense in universe.Materials is a tough one, but the only Plas I got (rem) wasn't any worse than metals. It definitely wasn't perfect though.Kickstarter was the only way they can sell those games, no retailer would stock a $100+ game from a no name company.Fuck off with your no game meme complaints.
>>83014393Ah whataboutism, argument #1 in all infinity generals. Back to discord, shilloid.
>>83014622Just played a tournament yesterday. Ariadna won. Go play some actual games loser.
>>82944975That or force cb to consider it a "misspack" and they gotta send you the missing model.
>>82940724snubs looking cute here
Man I don't know. I got into Infinity because of the models true, but it's like, there's supposedly all of huge, and awesome lore that is behind a paywall since the rules themselves are free.Awesome, so not only is the game super good, the models are wonderful, and the rules are free? Holy shit I gotta get the books and read what the lore is all about!The lore is fucking boring. The world building is fucking boring. The writing and prose is mediocre at best. The small semi interesting bits of the world, like how Hollow Men are child brains in a tank controlling remote bodies as if they're playing a game, forever stuck in a simulation world.. are lost in a huge muck of boring.Huge disappointment. The best way I can describe it is, if 40k is primarily about the lore to sell stupid grossly overpowered shit to people who devour the said lore, and the world building is so nice it's instantly recognizable... Then Corvus Belli's Infinity setting is made by a bunch of tourneyfags who have only experience in making game systems and sculpting models.. as writers, as story tellers, as marketers, they fail. There is nothing instantly recognizable or exciting about Infinity, even though there are some amazing sci fi concepts to be explored from the tech to the factions to the wars, but no, they somehow made it all sound and feel boring.
>>83018229There's always the guy who will explain to you what 40k is by telling you about the fact that it's happening 10k years after the Horus Heresy, oh wait so the Horus Heresy is when the Primarch, oh wait so a Primarch is the spawn of the God Emperor, oh wait so the God Emperor of Mankind is.. and so on, and so on, and so on. Cause like it or not it's interesting, different. Or maybe it was interesting and different at some point.There is nothing like that with Infinity. No one discusses the intricacies of how Avicenna used to be a famous and powerful arabic philosopher and a genius of medicine who was kidnapped, tortured, detached from ALEPH, brainwashed and turned into a woman just as a 'fuck you' to ALEPH and is now a liberated agent on the run doing mercenary work.No one will tell you this because no one cares. As with the rest of the lore.
>>83018229Honestly sounds like you were looking for a reason to criticize Infinity. Because none of that has a basis in what's going on. What's wrong, anon?
>>83018229>Then Corvus Belli's Infinity setting is made by a bunch of tourneyfagsIt was literally made lore-first from their RPG characters and settings.
>>83014622When you choose to play a game, you are choosing from an array of options. Making a comparison is not the same thing as whataboutism, but nice try dropping buzzwords you don't understand.
>>83019787Now now, ESL-kun has hard enough time writing words period. Some day they may even make sense. The hospital staff is working hard to cure him.
>>82972568What's a good REM body I can splice in if I want to go full MOO?
>>83021159I'd say Copperbots, they are still in metal though
>>83021487Oh yeah, copperbots look perfect. Thanks Anon!
>>83008267Morat sculpts are great though? All they need is a new zerat.
>>83023943Yes but when I posted here saying I was going to buy morat models an anon would inevitably post his theory about how morats were going to get revamped soon and then I'd get confused and decide not to buy anyI like the vanguards but others look a bit weird
>>83023982Wait for an official announcement, even if they are going OOP you'll have a few months to buy them first
>>83024065Why would I want to buy them?
I almost have all of the mainline available Morat models in the range... I just need the special-weapons Morat Vanguards box and the Rodok Missile Launcher, but they're out of stock at my usual spots. I really hope we get a revamp down the line.
>>83024074You said you posted here saying you were going to buy them? >>83023982
>>83024145This kills the troll.
>>83024074WIP in the negatives
>>83008548Hey, I will have you know my painting looks almost the same as it did back in the day!
>>83018229>but it's like, there's supposedly all of huge, and awesome loreTurns out news can be overstated or even wrong.
>>83023943>All they need is a new zerat.And new Hungries.
>>83030864Hungries are wonderful, albeit a little difficult to assemble.
>>830327051st edition hungries were even better
>>82972568>>82971213Every new design for siocast is just missing that corvus belli signature level of detail. These are just rubbery duplo figures. Fuck. The siocast machines cant make better stuff and instead of raising prices they compromise on the only thing that set cb apart. I would meme and troll but this just makes me sad
>>83030864New hungries would be great, didn't mention them because they aren't morats.
>>83035246They are some of the most creative rems cb has done you doofus
>>83035246But those are metal not plastic
>>83035246Both of those are in metal
You niggas are autistic as fuck but I also genuinely hope that the siocast thing is a temporary hiccup and CB eventually abandons the idea and goes back to metal exclusive.I mean shit if I can buy tin cans of beans for a dollar a can, the way they've been hyping up the price increases makes me think I need to collect these cans smelt them and sell them off cause clearly they should be going for ten dollars a piece in metal alone.
>>83037704>if I can buy tin cans of beansYou can't. You can buy aluminium or steel cans that have a thin layer of tin or other materials plated onto them.
>>83024766Access to finer materials and techniques has surely improved your hobby, Mr.
>>83035704>>83037308>literal liesBased shills.
>>83039474>>83040132No wait, the copperbots are metal, the fuzzbots are plastic. My bad, got confused
>>82940724Happy Wolf Moon, gang. Posed all of the models I've assembled since the start of the year outside for a photo shoot. Looking forward to painting my Ariadna forces, for sure. Pictured is CODE ONE - INFINITY: OPERATION CRIMSON STONE + USARIADNA BOX SET
>>83040526Kino, what color scheme?
>>83040590I'm honestly going to try to experiment with something close to the KosmoSoldat, just change the blue out for orange and I want to see if I can get some really satisfying weathered whites to pull it off. I'm going to try to make Ashley Wood blush.Now, I've never worked with chip material before, but I might give it a try on a Rokot soon.
>>83018229Infinity lore is a hodgepodge of various sci fi tropes. Good stuff is in character stories. Unfortunately for now we just have two manga, so characters like Scarface or Raoul Spector aren't explored beyond their blurbs. I hope at one point CB makes the authors do existing characters rather than letting them invent new ones (Betrayal was a step in the direction).
One more shadow and light test shot before I drift off to sleep. Taking pictures at night is tricky but very rewarding.
>>83040906___ ____ ____
>>83037704I don't mind if they switch to plastic, but they should switch to actual plastic in that case.
>>83040882>Betrayal was a step in the directionStop posting here, Gutier. Betrayal was uprising tier garbage and infinity characters are literally ripoffs or shitty selfinserts. They are the worst part of lore right now (not a high bar, I know).
>>83040882Would love to see a manga or book featuring Scarface and Cordelia.
Thoughts on pop-up terrain? Is it okay to mix it with the other stuff or should I make the whole board constant throughout?
>>83041146I like when terrain has a theme, I don't care if it's prepainted or not and what material it's made of, as long as it doesn't slide around the table or fall apart under TAGs.
>>83040882Can't wait for the novels
>>83041231Ah, yes Tom Clancy-inspired tripe, can't wait.
>>83040882Infinity is a fun setting (if not original, it never attempted to be), but its characters have worse characterization than dragon ball side characters.
>>83041307The author of the first one is a British guy, so it could help you improve your English skills ESL-anon
>>83040958I hate plastic, resin, even floppy resin, is way nicer to work with. Just wear a mask (you should anyway, metal shavings can be inhaled too)
>>83041327>British guySo, (((techno-thriller))) with quipping pajeets, can't fucking wait.
>>83041512Seba, get back to work kurwa.
>>83041533Still salty about slavs dropping N4 en masse, eh?
>>83041385Absolutely not, resin is the worst, it's just so unforgiving.
>>83041622This month there were 4 official tournaments in Poland alone
>>83041668The Polish WarCors got out of the dogbox over their "official rules"?
>>83041314That's why they need the novels. CB's own 2kool4skool edgy style is horrible.
>>83041889Wasn't the whole thing basically one guy?
>>83041960And literally who britbong author is somehow better?
>>83042851Well, the bar is pretty low at this point. And Outrage was good.
>>83041314Do you mean this fluffwise or gameplay wise?
> yet another army bites the dust> plasticsMan, it feels good to have my three completed army. Only thing I need now is to properly format the profiles for VA Spiral Corp and Tohaa and I can forget about the company.
>>83043719> VA Spiral CorpHuh?
>>83043758CA I fat fingered that one.
>>83041087Betrayal was fun, though not as good as outrage.
>>83043939Betrayal best script.Outrage best Art.
>>83044058Why didn't they get the same artist for the second spanga?
>>83044058>Betrayal best script.Riiight
>>83043939>>83044058Why tell lies?
>>83048162Weird reason, desu.
>>83044058Another anon described Betrayal as a better story told more shittily and I tend to agree with that. The base components are great, but it's paced weirdly and relies way to much on random chance.As is Betrayal mostly lives off Adil being a more interesting and nuanced protagonist compared to Outrage's very stock (but fun) characters.
>>83050448Ever wonder what could have been of that first comic project from years back had been finished and released? The one starring rogue asura and O-Yoroi pilot?
>>83040956kek cheeky bastard>>83043939>>83044058Outrage best Manga, Emily best girl
>>83051391There is not enough Emily in the World
>>83040906>>83040814>>83040526Very cool my dude. That color scheme sounds nice, and I think I've seen examples in-universe before. I believe they're on nomads though.
>>82982347A full Exrah army would be a glass cannon nightmare if they actually keep the Exrah special rule. Everybody is 1W and no Unconscious state vs the vast majority of damage types. At least you wouldn't have to worry about bringing Doctors for anything other than objectives.>>83006968Void Ops would be pretty decent now that their visors can both work at the same time.
I hope Eternity won't be classical/tolkenian fantasy as a genre. I'm hoping for something like Torchlight but maybe it could be too similar to Warmachine
>>83055333Eternity is the time it'll take them to get something done
>>83045258He probably got too popular and got more expensive. Or too preoccupied with his own Greek myth comics and Tezuka tributes.
>>83055333You will get the moba capeshit and you WILL defend it.
>>83055333that's exactly what i expect and want. Corvus version of Old World. Elves (in diferent flavours, high, wood, dark), dwarfs, humans...
>>83044058Outrage is what every Infinity player plays.Betrayal is Yu Jing Fetish.
>>83056568Betrayal shits on yujing, just like rpg books.
>>83055333I hope it’s not steampunk. And that the models are more slender like „reslistic“ fantasy and not those blocky, oversized models that we can see in some Sigma or Conquest factions. That really turns me off.
>>83056598>Betrayal shits on yujing, just like rpg books.
>>83056632Is prostitution legal in Poland?
>>83057162Yes, but pimping isn't.
>>83057902It ain't easy
>>83057107I should really read Betrayals, these snippets look fun
