Infinity N3: Diving in, all hail the Hyperpower
So…heeeeeyyyyy, it’s been a while right? Well, um, we have lives (not that I do anything with mine, but I’m sure everyone else does stuff with theirs). One doesn’t feel like blogging and probably needs to make a page on the book of faces/twitter or whatever to frequently hobby at the community.
Anyway here’s a quick post re: Infinity, the game as someone is getting in on some Pan-O action just as soon as I finish my exam this Friday and obtain the rules (or print out a copy at officeworks or similar). While I do have the nomads from 2013-14, I don’t want to kick off N3 with minis I had during my really horribad anxiety days. Starting fresh with a different faction is the way to go, according to the brain.
Why do I want to start up infinity? To be quite honest I’ve been channeling GiTS for a while and having an alternative from steampunk/fantasy would be a welcome change. Don’t get me wrong, I love Malifaux as it’s an awesome system with neat minis (and wave 4 is gonna drop soon) but I don’t want to play it all the time. With the advent of Wave 9 in X-wing coming out with ARC-170’s, my little bro will be all over that game, so the future is bright in that regard. Back to Infinity, reiterating that I’m a fan of Ghost in the Shell and do love Sci-fi in general so as an alternative game, it should scratch the itch.
So far, I’ve gotten the vanilla Pan-o set, with the slick new metals along with…
Finally, after about three years I bit the bullet and bought one of them. It’s a badger TC908 aspire or something- was on sale with 53% off so I bought that shit right there, as normally a decent compressor runs around $250. Once my exam is done, I’ll be whipping it out and spraying things and that came out wrong, didn’t it? Anyhow, it’ll probably be another three years before I get a light box and another three before I get a magnifying lamp.
What I want to do though with Pan-O is run the NeoTerra Capitaline sectorial list as the Neoterra Bolts look sweet as all hell and I get to use the Squalo in either vanilla Pan-O or in the NTC sectorial. I have a thing about mechs carrying grenade launchers. Squalo is on the way with bases, as I want to pin using the base tabs a go.
The plan thus far is to learn the basics/ins and outs of infinity with the vanilla set, then acquire the NTC starter, the bolts pack and the Hexa w/ sniper rifle. Might even get the Dire foes pack with Fusileer Bipandra in that, as she’s a decent medic, according to the Date Sphere. Plus sectorials = link teams, again according to the Data Sphere.
This time around I’ve found a bunch of communities nearby that play infinity (which I swear were not there back in 2013-4) so I’ll try to get games happening soon. Am keen as a bean to get some sci-fi happening.
Stay tuned to moar updates. Possibly. Maybe. No promises, ok?
