Although... what you described would make a cool scratch-built Ork vehicle.

It might've been 20 years ago, now it's virtually indistinguishable in tone to Warmachine. Any sense of irony or black humor is lost to time as GW unironically fluffs Imperium up as the good guys.

Military Orders blog post with fluff and concept art is up on the CB page.

Concept of the Knight of the Holy CRAPulchre!



For those in the know, is the deal with the free Inquisitor specific only to ordering direct from CB or is that available through any retailer (whether FLGS or online)?

It's a thing through at least to local suppliers, and most of the previous launch deals were. Look around?

Also interestingly, the artwork has the basic PanO HMG instead of the gatling. Last minute change, or the sculptor grabbed the wrong gun's cad file when sculping?

Battle-tested Knight Castellan Pilot





The Sepulchrist Knights abandoned the battlefield as though they had just left a military parade. Proud in their head-to-toe blue armor and their dark robes billowing in the wind, they climbed into an aerotransport while the Yu Jing army watched them depart with a mix of admiration, respect, and relief.

Mat Ward walked so Corvus Belli could run.

So they're the Ultramarines of Infinity? Makes sense given the colors...

The Knights of the Holy Sepulchre have holofields. They were absolutely faking it.

Is this the go-to website for Infinity fluff? I'm trying to find out some of the differences between the new units/models.

How long does it take generally for a model that premieres in one of these big army/action packs to be available individually?

Now? Never pretty much. You might get an alt weapon option sculpt in a separate blister or unit box.

Like a lot of model firms they've a constant battle today between providing customers with high diversity whilst keeping the bloat of their ranges stocking options low.

So you see more and more using these more expensive all in one packs rather than blisters.

In part its driven by stores having less space per game because the market has far more on the go. Another is that distributors are also less willing to stock more and more diversity of models so its easier to get them to stock fewer bigger boxes which then get passed onto the retailers.


The last thing you want is a huge sku with no stores stocking enough of the range to make it work and distributors only stocking the newest and leaving huge amounts of your game inaccessible (easily) to your customers.




Many of those who have resisted the change are often simply used to selling direct to their customers.

I understand. I was just asking as I saw that the bigger figs from ARF starter like the bikers and various Antipodes/Dogfaces got separate releases (that was the last release I followed closely). I'm on the cusp of picking up the Military Orders set and want two Sepulchre Knights but not doubles of everything else so figured I'd ask if there was a baseline to expect.

Right behind you.

The bikers and Devil Dogs were not the same as the retail release.

Thanks. I didn't catch the different weapon on the Devil Dog in the separate pack. It is indeed a different loadout. I suppose they'll likely do the same with the Sepulchre Knight as well I suppose by putting out the other weapon loadout.

Probably. I can't recall the last time they split up one of the army collection boxes into blisters, so if you want to start the panoceania space marines, i'd seriously consider the preorder pack they had in march.

Thanks. Also, I prefer PrimarO but I'll also accept Panostartes.

Raptors are amazing, Tankhunter lady is very good, Tohaa bioconstructs are neat. Shona is meh, but I didn't like the LE model either, it's just a boring design.

Is it normal in the background for aliens like the longarms to be included in the human faction lists?

There’s been the odd alien mercenary in human lists, and there’s an NA2 mercenary company (Spiral Corps) which are humans and Tohaa together.

As for TAG Raid, I'm a bit surprised (but probably shouldn't be) that they're designing new mining specific TAGs for the game instead of just bits to add to existing ones so as not to bloat the lines further.

I think they mentioned Tohaa for these so I guess that fits as well. Cool looking mini regardless.

These are Chaksa, which are a Tohaa unit, and the Longarms came out with Spiral Corps (they’re a unit there and in Tohaa). By all accounts, they’re a pretty poor unit game-wise, so hopefully they’re getting an updated profile, or they’ll probably just not be used in another 4 sectorials...

I'm a bit baffled at the industrial focus of Tag Raid, I thought that tags were expensive, specialized military machines, designed to replace MBTs due to their ease of transport and deployment, so a mining company would go for much cheaper, less complex caterpillar drill...but I guess it's just a side game, so it hardly matters. Not interested at all.

The teutonic knights and Wild Bill were pretty neat tho, and I'm glad to see the Shang Ji back, I remember when they were the New and Improved Invincible 2.0

Military TAGs are expensive, specialized units intended not to replace tanks, but to give a heavy weapons platform suitable for the low level, mostly urban, conflicts the forces engage in, tactical military grade gear, specialized low noise modifications, armour strong enouph but light enouph ectr ectr make them expensive, "gears" in general are useful in environments a conventional vehicle would not fit but a larger human frame would be useful, such civilian grade gears exist and their existence in Dawn is already mentioned.

Strapping a gun on it is hardly an innovation.
