Those RPG characters look solid. Great for Proxies.

Right behind you.

That SpecOps is decidedly "Meh". She got billed as a sniper+heavy pistol by CB themselves, but man did that not pan out apparently.

Agents is, as I figured, a way to squeak out some new SpecOps. PanO's an Order Sergeant, Nomad seems to be a Moderator, the Ariadnan one seems to be a Kazak, and the YJ one looks to be just super generic.

Glad to finally see the Mukhtar. I'm not a particular fan of the pose though; not saying there's anything wrong with it, just not to my tastes.

I thought I was seeing another Raoul Spector mini. Not the Mukhtar sculpt I wanted.

The other minis are varying degrees of nice, but nothing for me this month... except shipping for Defiance, IIRC, will be due.

Clearly that's the Orange Hood, Red Hood's lesser-known sidekick/spin-off character. DC's real big on that sort of thing.

That option is included in a bevy of alternate arms. I wish there were pictures since I'm probably going to use her as a sniper chasseur.

Carlos wouldn't go all the way to the BeastsofWar studio just for an Aristeia release. I bet they have something big coming up soon.

Code One and the new Pan-O v. Yu Jing battle box are to be released at the end of March, in time for Adepticon. This according to Belén Moreno in a podcast ( in Spanish.) Does that qualify as big? Koni promises new videos at the satellite tounaments ( I suspect the LVO is one of them) starting this week-end.

So any news on N4? I fell out of the game due to my time continually shrinking.

brief summery of video:

2020 Preview:

Operation Kaldstrom -- new battlepack (pano, yujin). Code one starter. Released at Adepticon. Two new armies for each faction introduced.

Starting at Adepticon is when infinity will split into 2 games. Code one and N4 which will be released at Gencon.

No Sectorials in Code One (not unexpected).

Code One is important not just for getting new players but retail, having a core set of products for them to stock (this has been talked about before).

ITS season will start right after N4's release in August.

Upcoming releases:

Shasvastii Nox Troops Box -- specops ill be in this box (already painted and should be released soon).

Shasvastii is the current best selling army at filming.

Namurr Active Responce for Haqq -- painted and releasing soon

Q&A section:

N4 has new Crit rules that will be affected by trooper profile

Can Zhanshi be one point cheaper? -- Yujin Number one

On faction balance -- Yes newer armies seam better but there are 37 armies and that's hard to balance all the time. Also don't confuse popularity with army efficiency as they've learned people choose armies not just based off of how well they play. They have an ITS chart showing army wins vs losses and all hover around mid to upper 40% win vs loss. With the largest spread 10% between Shock Army (worst) and Rahamada task force (best win rate). There was a lot to this. Probably be best to go and listen to yourself as it's hard to summarize on one viewing (which is all I have time for) and what I wrote might not be the best summery of what Carlos said. About halfway into the video.

3 More Armies in 2020. 2 of those will be in the new Battle Box. The 3rd one is at end of year.

No Plan for an Australian Sectorial army.

Are Merc options missing Tag or heavy hitters going to get one anytime soon? Can't say. Wait till N4.

Will there by a CB fantasy game? Right now we're working on N4 and there's no current project being worked on. Once N4 and Defiance are done maybe but still probably years away.

We know Pan0 is a mistake -- Pan0 is such a mistake that it has 4 armies and getting another one this year so Neoterra is going away. They can't go above 50 skus (I'm not sure in what this is reference too probably per faction).

Will units disappear in N4 -- Yes. The timeline is advancing and some units will go away.

What's the goal for Hacking N4 -- Simpler and more effective. Less devices, programs and so on.

What's the Mini with the N4 preorder -- They haven't decided. Most likely Merc that will work with any army.

New TAGs in 2020. Some will be resculpts like the Cutter. O-12 is getting one too.

Few things I didn't write down but noting really that important.

Thanks for the summary!

Looking forward to N4 and hopefully some level of 'streamlining' (if not 'simplification'), especially when it comes to hacking.

Hopefully TAGs become more useful in N4.

And hopefully the Al-Medinat Sectorial finally sees the light of day in 2020 too (?) !

Yes, I was making a perhaps too subtle joke there...

I was excited by the prospect of the Al-Medinat Sectorial, and disappointed by the reality of the Ramah Task Force!

Q&A summery:

Carlos is looking forward more for Adepticon and Code One then N4 as it's closer and the start of a new beginning.

Will Links be powerful in N4? Yes, they're important.

No rules/mechanics from Defiance/Ariestia! in N4 despite rumors. Those games aren't Infinity, they aren't going to radically change the game much. N2 -> N3 is a larger change then N3->N4.

N4 Changes scope question -- N4 is a streamlining of N3 and removing redundancy and volume of rules that aren't needed.

Question about releasing all weapon options in boxes and general release cleanup -- Now products will be marked as especial so hopefully they'll be more in stock. As always about the weapon options they don't sell sprues they sell figures. If they moved the plastic they could but it doesn't work for them in Metal.

Question about Bakunin getting HI and some other stuff -- No. As the figure in question is just trying to mirror how other factions play and that's not what Bakunin is about. They don't deserve TO HI units.

N4 Timeline jump -- yes (as in the other video). The last 3 books were working towards the new N4 timeline as they were moving it forward as well.

Question on improvement to ITS site -- They're focusing on N4 release. Maybe at some point.

What is Carlos wishlist for N4 -- To streamline and allow more people to play. And to get rid of superfluous rules that are the same except for one small part. Rules names are changing too. Like now there's Dodge +3 so people know it is. (I believe this was two different questions I combined into one summery)

What is your favorite tag? -- The Salamander.

Question about MI in N4 -- MI will be a different thing in N4 so they don't have to be "patched" to play.

Top selling stuff -- They're filtering the charts to try and give more accurate results as more recent stuff will obviously sell better, same with battle boxes.
1) CSU (shotgun)
2) Dakini Tacbots
3) Ikadron Batroids
4) Tunguska Jurisdictional Commando
5) Dronbot Remotes (REM) (oldest SKU still in production that Carlos can think of)
6) Invincibles Terra-cotta
7) Zulu-Cobra (jammer)
8) Varuna Immediate Reaction Division
9) Rebots
10) Dragon Lady.

Are Tohaa an endangered species now? -- Yes. They're blocked off from home.

N4 will be the whole game. No splitting into Human Sphere N4 and such. This isn't a remake it's a sequel.

N4 isn't going to really reduce the weapon chart. The focus is on skills and rules. (nothing about ammo).

Another excellent summary and so, another 'thank you'!

Lots of stuff about N4 -- does anyone have a quick and dirty summary of what we can expect from Code One? Simplified ruleset, fewer armies, fewer special rules and exceptions, otherwise pretty much as per standard Infinity? 'Cos if so that could very well be my jam.
