Of course not.

The recreations of them however will be romanticized and fictionalized knock-offs. Every bit as fictional as a recreation of Sherlock Holmes.

I apologize, I’ve seen a bit of people dissing paint jobs recently and have apparently become touchy about it.

Homer’s account was not entirely fictional. The Trojan War did happen. Not like he wrote it, but it was based on real events and most likely real people.

There was a Trojan war. Which involved people names Achilles, Patrocles, Ajax, etc... The events Homer describes probably do not resemble what actually happened, but the people and the place existed and a war was fought there.

The people Homer wrote about are probably the only real parts of his story

Homer is the only source we have of those people existing though, unlike the war itself. We know that Troy had a large outer wall because it's been excavated, we know Troy was burnt to the ground in the Bronze Age, because of carbon debris being left over in excavations (something which matches exactly the ruins of Carthage for example) and we have supplementary evidence the Greeks fought the Trojans there (peace treaties and calls for assistance between the Trojans and the Mitanni). The war happened, sure. The people in the story? Almost 100% certain that they're all fictional. Homer wrote the Iliad over 500 years after the war happened, and him being the only source of those people existing, it's all but accepted they never existed.

I'll finish this off by saying that I'm now in my fourth and last year of a degree in the classics, majoring in Ancient Greek history, and that I've studied the Trojan War for a significant portion of that time. Not a single professor or book has made an attempt at claiming the characters of the Iliad were real people in any way, other than Heinrich Schliemann (the first excavator of Troy and Mycenae) who is universally considered a hack

Recreations are all simulated personalities created on whatever "historical" sources exist for the recreation at hand merged with what the "contemporary" (contemporary for Infinities timeline) population believes the character would look like and behave and whatever secret agenda is under the funding that allowed the recreation to happen.

So all recreations are more or less fictional, made to look and behave in the way the people of Infinity would believe they would.

A very nice looking starter box. And listed at:

That's a rather boring looking boxed set.

And not just because it isn't the Ramah Task Force.

It looks like the DaoYing just has a satchel behind her and some kind of waistcoat hanging in the front. It does create an odd silhouette but if you follow the armor plating it seems less weird looking.

Something about the armour designs just don't work for me, the daoying in particular looked way cooler in the concept art.

Actually, I think all the females suffer from too tiny waists. Their legs look too bulky in comparison - may just be armour throwing me off though

The waist of the Daoying is definitely off. The baggage on the waist is sticking out a bit, but even if we remove that the thigh is still sticking out an unnatural amount. Plus relative to the shoulders it is also out of proportion.

I think its mostly an awkward angle. The hips are kind of twisted to her right and the torso to her left and with the armor and baggage the silhouette looks off, but when I focus on the details and compare here with the other two, they look to have about the same proportions.

All females look to be inspired by kdm, big hips, small waist...though infinity ones lack big boobs...a dick or two and you have nice kdm models :p

Let's not bring any futanari into Infinity, please. It would be a Bakunin thing anyway, not an IA thing.

We should get some better photos next week.

Looks like there forum export function for the army builder is not working so well.

Interested in Seeing the 112 bike profile, but already having a Dozer and with no interest in the Kazak Doctor that's a split box purchase for me.

The new ange on the AI box is good. Really shows off the paint job Can't wait to get my mitts on them.

Also, why is Dart being a little teapot?

If I wasn't selling off all my Ariadna, I'd be picking up that box.

Everything else is just kinda blah/meh this month.

Right behind you.

So with regards to the 112 Biker:
1) Available to all Ariadna(shame they released a new crappy Kazak Doctor in the box instead of a second Dozer or a dismounted 112)
2) Supposedly doesn't replace the existing 112 profile
3) Has smoke

We already have a 112 model so no need for a dismounted version.

Disagree. If you're going to sell the Biker that's a new profile, they better come with a dismounted version.

I expect to have the usual apologists coming to tell me that it "wouldn't be practical", but I'd like to point out that we didn't need the Kazak Doctor in an all-Ariadna pack.
