If it's such a common "resting pose", where are the males doing the same thing?
Hips shifted to one side, hand placed onto the top of the barrel of the firearm, offhand resting upon their hip or doing something goofy like fingerguns.

Amirite?

This article from a week and a half ago. https://www.infinitythegame.com/blog/articles/item/448-2018-a-year-of-challenges Some "big news" on Beasts of War in early March.

Sounds like a Paradiso N3 announcement then, or later at GenCon/for GenCon.

They are bringing back the Exrah. As a Merc sectorial.

Actually, reading the rest of the article, they will release the Dire Foes 7: Hillbillies versus Bugs box (really called "Dire Foes Mission Pack 7: Candy Cloud") It appears to be a lead up to the next on-line campaign. The CA and USAriadna seem an odd dire foe set. This may be a clue about the setting shake-up.

How can this model possibly be construed as a poledancer? She's literally just standing next to her rifle. She's one of the least sexualized models in the entire range.


Because if it's not 'both feet planets to the ground, aiming down the gun sight pointed straight forward' Kanluwen thinks it's terrible and/or cheesecake.

Spoiler:

It's more because that particular model's pose has what CB considers their 'special lady' pose. Hips slightly to one side in an attempt with one hand on hip to make the model look sassy.
You can find that pose(or a variation where the hand isn't on the hip) across all the various ranges for Infinity.


Yes. thats actually how humans stand. I stand like that every day. Standing next to a vertical object with one hand on her hip does not make a woman a pole dancer.

Yes, you can find that pose being used several times in the Infinity line. Its actually an extremely naturalist pose, so its repetition makes sense.

Spoiler:

She's supposed to be some kind of "Maya Star" from what it has her labeled as, so it's probably another reporter/reality TV star like GoGo Marlene.

Remember that they've been saying for awhile they wanted to do a Nexus SpecOp/Dire Foe so this is as good of a spot as any to get one.
I'm kinda worried about the USARF one since we've gotten two males now for them(the Event exclusive one is male) and I have a sneaky feeling they're gonna give us something crappy because of it. Hopefully it's the Winter Soldier knock-off that a lot of us were badgering them for, so the Unknown Ranger can have a sniper sidekick.

I'm not trying to get your hopes up. It would certainly fit the description, "a very important surprise that will amaze you" . The remnants of the Concordant still in the Human Sphere of space form a Mercenary force for hire. Instant "non-aligned army". CB gave us the Krakot Renegades. Alein mercs are not ouot of the question anymore.

However it is probably something else. Maybe they'll announce a fantasy skirmish game? Now that would amaze me.

The Dire Foes: It'll be the USAriadna version of Uxia MacNeill. or we'll get some Scarlett Johansson as black widow shout-out. More Comic book references. Ugh.

Ehhh..."alien mercs" were never really out of the question. We had Le Muet before we had the Krakot. We had the fluff for the Exrah, etc.

I'm going to say that it will be announcing that the Antipodes are, in fact, Tohaa creations and are joining the Tohaa.
Whatever it is, it'll be tied into the BoW campaign (of course it will...) and it will probably have some silly predetermined results that make GW's worldwide campaigns look legitimate.

Uxia's Scottish and TAK.

To understate the reaction. yes.

I meant alien merc faction. And to spell it correctly too. :S

I would say antipodes were a race that the Tohaa were 'exalting' before humans arrived and interrupted. But I don't find that surprising or amazing. Too many hints about it in the books already.

Miniature poses is a topic that is important for various reasons even if I agree or disagree with opinions on them. It is always good to get perspectives and hear about bad and good ones... so I created a topic for discussion in another thread to separate it from here.

Wasn't the March announcement supposedly something "more controversial than Ko Dali" or something like that?

Bostria was claiming that it would be something as divisive/trolly as Ko Dali being moved over to the Combined Army.

But given that it's Bostria claiming it, it's best taken with a pinch of salt since his trolling is well-known.

The WarCor looks a lot like GiJoe's Scarlett. Hard to tell for sure, though considering the design overall is a bit generic.

From the sounds of it it was teased as an "in universe / lore" shakeup or event, so everyone suddenly turning into plastic seems a remote possibility.

New factions / faction changes, or a new campaign, or something like that seems more likely.

So many games, so little time.

So many models, even less time.

Screw it, Netflix and chill.

Certainly good candidates for multi-level resin bases - like streets with kerbs, or steps.
