Corvus Belli have publicly announced the next wave of new miniatures coming our way next month. Following the precedent set with last month’s onslaught – there are quite a few of them so let’s have a quick look.
Ariadna are first off the rank, with a totally new re-sculpt of the previously released Caledonia Highlander Army Sectorial. Replacing the old box, this should still prove to be the best choice to start collecting this army. Inside you’ll find six new miniatures which provide the core units of any Caledonian army list.
Contents includes three Caledonian Volunteers, two of them with Rifles and one a Paramedic, providing the essential backbone. A Caledonian Mormaer with a T2 Rifle, able to provide long range cover and help clear the path for the included Wulver and 3rd Highlander Grey Rifle, both of whom are also sporting T2 Rifles. These guys are great in a close quarters fight, bringing the fury of the Highlanders to their enemies in great style.
This seasoned Bagh-Mari trooper makes a welcome addition to the PanOceania faction, allowing you to add one of these well-equipped combatants to your army. A perfect fit with the Bagh-Mari Fireteam box released previously, the addition of an HMG should allow a bit more brute force when it comes to spearheading your attacks.
The Hassassin Áyyār provides a powerful undercover agent to the Haqqislam faction. The famous lone hunter is depicted with two viral pistols, but can also be used with a Sniper Rifle or Shock Marskman rifle to bring maximum utility – unfortunately the model doesn’t feature those options. He comes with some pretty great special rules and abilities which should help him combine well with the Hassassin Bahram box set and that Sectorial army in general.
It’s great to see more two model blister packs coming our way from Corvus Belli, giving players more bang for their buck without needing to invest in a complete box set. The latest to get this treatment is the Danavas Hacker and Karkata Remote Pilot unit for ALEPH. Giving players of the faction both a competent hacker and a TAG pilot that not only helps to accomplish objectives deep in enemy territory, but also complements the existing Marut TAG quite well.
If the Hacker and Pilot weren’t enough for ALEPH players, they’ll also be receiving a new 300 point box set of their very own! As with similar packs of this nature, this set should prove the best choice to start collecting this army, providing ten amazing miniatures and the units necessary to create a competitive army list.
Focused on the unique Steel Phalanx Sectorial Army, this box contains not only models that are as striking on the battlefield as they are on the tabletop. Inside you’ll find four Myrmidons, one Myrmidon Officer, one Phoenix Veteran Myrmidon Officer, one Agema Marksmen with Multi-Sniper Rifle, one Penthesilea Amazon Warrioress on a bike, one Myrmidon with Spitfire and of course, one Ajax The Great. The set really does provide the potential to compose several variations including Fireteams, making it ideal for quick offensive response forces ready to face any situation on the battlefield.
The elusive and popular Ninjas of the Yu Jing faction will be repackaged next month, with a new blister containing two separate variants of the (in)famous unit. This is a repackaging of individual products into a single product. Included is one Ninja MULTI Sniper and one Ninja Hacker. These guys have been a pretty solid staple of many lists since the early days of Infinity and it’s good to see them getting a bit more love from Corvus Belli, making them easier to field effectively than ever before.
Nomad players will also see another repackage next month, with the previously separate Zeros now combined into a single blister pack. Players will find one Zero with a Combi Rifle and one Zero Hacker in the pack, making it easier than ever to deploy these sabotage experts on the table.
Lots of cool new stuff on the way obviously, but it’s also great to see the minor shakeups Corvus Belli are introducing to the range. These decisions should make the process of getting into Infinity a bit less daunting for new players while sparing the wallets slightly of the existing player base.
We’ll have these awesome new guys up for Pre-Order soon so keep your eye out!
