Not much to this one, as the title states I recently received some reinforcements for Infinity. My buddy Jeff recently headed out to GenCon, had a blast of course, and in addition to getting himself the Pan-O Military Orders box he snagged me a free copy of the starter rules...much better than the printout I've been using!
One of the back pages of the starter rules had a sheet of counters. Unlike the color printer ones last time, these were printed on the nice, glossy-slick paper that the whole rulebook is printed on. Like last time however, with barely any effort, I cut them out and glued them down to spare slottabases effectively doubling my overall counter count and giving me some badly needed thermo-optic camo markers.
Finally comes the real meat and potatoes to the reinforcements segment; more models for my Combined Army. Nothing too outside of the box, not knowing the game well enough I could've pondered troop choices 'til the cows came home. I just went with what the main site suggested to add to flesh out the starter box to a full three hundred points. I figured just adding three models got me to 'regular' sized games? Sign me up. It also helped that two of the three suggested figs were already on my 'must have because they look too cool' list.
Up first would be the jetpack-equipped and heavily armed/armored Rasyat. The ultra sneaky crouched Noctifer was next; lots of stealth and decent firepower, not to mention a great sculpt put him on my must-have list. Rounding out the trio is the shape-shifting Speculo Killer, maybe not my third choice, but she (it?) works out points-wise and has some kind of neat (weird?) egg laying capability.
As with my last Infinity post, I snuck in Ray's Ariadna at the end. This time is no different as I am sneaking in one of Andy's troopers too. Jeff was on a snagging frenzy at GenCon and picked up this alternate sculpt variant of one of Pan-O's basic line troops, the Fusiliers. If you haven't seen Andy's Fusiliers so far you need to check them out here.
That's about all I have for now, until next time!
