Miniature wargames enthusiasts will be extremely pleased to learn that the popular board game Infinity will be getting a new line of products. The Spanish board game studio behind the game, Corvus Belli, has been steadily showcasing the new Infinity products, which are scheduled for release on May 31.

Infinity players will be able to expand their collections with new gorgeous miniatures and bases, form new strategies with the upcoming skill operatives, and take their tabletop experience to the next level. To further improve gameplay, Corvus Belli has also released unpainted scenic bases with Line of Fire markings, which come in three different sizes – 25mm, 40mm, and 55 mm.

Let’s start with my personal favorite faction, the Daturazi Witch Soldiers from the Combined Army, more specifically their Morat Aggression Forces division. These warriors are absolutely brutal, fighting their foes to the bitter end. Each warrior has mind/comlog integration, combining mental discipline and martial arts designed to take full advantage of the comlog.

This system gives the Daturazi Witch Soldiers lightning-fast reflexes and computer-like response times. Their box will include four miniatures: a Daturazi with Chain Rifle, a Daturazi with Boarding Shotgun, a Daturazi with Combi Rifle, and a Daturazi with DA CCW.

Two New Booster Packs for the ALEPH and Haqqislam  Factions

Continuing on, the ALEPH Booster Pack Beta will contain three miniatures for ALEPH: One Machaon, Myrmidon Doctor-Officer with Combi Rifle, one Acmon with Combi Rifle, and one Makhai with Missile Launcher. For those unfamiliar with the lore, ALEPH is an extremely advanced AI that oversees the data network of the Human Sphere and most major international technological systems. Humanity has become entirely dependent on it, and without it, human civilization is sure to crumble. This product will provide players looking to expand their ALEPH collections with excellent options and variety.

The second booster Booster Pack revealed will be for the Haqqislam faction – followers of a new branch of Islam based on the doctrine of the Search for Knowledge of the caliphates of old, where science and progression were held in the highest regard. The Haqqislam Booster Pack Beta will also include three miniatures: one Asawira with Spitfire, one Hortlak Janissary with Submachine Gun, and one Al Fasid with Heavy Rocket Launcher. Much like the ALEPH Booster Pack Beta, this product offers a solid roster expansion.

Small Blister Packs – Big Value

Next up are the Húláng Shocktroopers blister, from Yu Jing’s Invincible Army. Much like the warriors of old, they prefer using their swords rather than their submachine guns, getting close and personal with Yu Jing’s many enemies. The Húláng Shocktroopers never fight alone, however, as they can only count on additional support from the CrazyKoalas killer robots. The blister contains one Húláng Shocktrooper with Submachine Gun and two CrazyKoalas.

And finally, we have the Meteor Zond (Boarding Shotgun) blister, which includes a single Meteor Zond model. With its special Combat Jump Special Skill, it can be deployed in the midst of the enemy ranks for great “shock and awe” value, which will additionally allow you to expand your hacking area with its Repeater with virtually no risk. The Zond (which is what the Russians called Unidentified Flying Objects) is usable by the Nomads, the Jurisdictional Command of Bakunin, and the Jurisdictional Command of Tunguska.

A self-proclaimed warrior-poet, Krasen is a man of many hobbies – ranging from combat sports training, LARPing, to writing poetry. One of those many hobbies happens to be board games. Be it with a fist, pen, sword or keyboard – he aims to be just, merciless and effective.
