They went with a pledge manager service Gamefound after all that noise about building one, probably realized whatever they were building from scratch wouldn't be ready in a realistic timeframe. Got my pledge manager email, not going to log into it till I get home tonight. I'll PROBABLY just pay for shipping, i don't think there's anything I need to add that I didn't already include in my original pledge.

No manual. Ah, los vaivenes de la vida...

Shipping is $21.42 for me, which is a little less than I expected. However, the single shipping option for just the collector's level is for 2nd wave/November 2020. Hmmm. We'll see.

Substituting enemies in a mission

Hello again, dear backers,

As you know, the Pledge Manager opened its gates on February 18. An e-mail with a link to your Gamefound account has been sent to those of you who participated in the Kickstarter.

Please check your spam box if you didn’t receive it, and if you still haven’t found it, contact us and we’ll send you the link. Send an e-mail to contact@corvusbelli.com and we’ll help you.

In today’s update, we’ll show you how to substitute enemies in a mission.

Let’s do this!

Mission 1

We’re substituting Units from the Basic Box to make a multi-faction force. Shasvastii infiltration has reached unprecedented levels, and their agents have fabricated incriminating evidence against our Heroes - branding them as traitors. As a direct result of these actions, they are now being hunted down by the armies of the Human Sphere.

According to the Mission Instructions, the Aligned Units are these:

1 [Card]Nox Spec-Ops
1 [Card]Nox Leader
1 [Card]Nox Hacker
1 [Card]Cadmus
1 [Card]Gwailo
1 [Card] Naish Sheskiin
Let’s now check each Unit’s type in the substitution table:

Light Infantry

1 [Card]Nox Spec-Ops, 1 [Card]Nox Leader, 1 [Card]Nox Hacker

Medium Infantry

1 [Card]Cadmus

Heavy Infantry

1 [Card]Gwailo

Boss A

1 [Card] Naish Sheskiin

We can replace any of the Nox Units for another Light Infantry type: In this case, we’ll substitute 1 [Card]Nox Spec-Ops for 1 [Card]Dakini from Aleph.

Since we don’t have any more Light Infantry Units in Aleph, we’ll substitute the rest with Units from another faction: We’ll substitute 1 [Card]Nox Hacker for 1 [Card]Khawarijs from Haqqislam and 1 [Card]Nox Leader for 1 [Card]Kappa from O-12.

As for Medium Infantry Units, we’ll substitute 1 [Card]Cadmus for 1 [Card]Kamau Hacker from PanOceania.

For Heavy Infantry we’ll substitute 1 [Card]Gwailo for 1 [Card]Gamma from O-12.

And lastly, we’ll substitute 1 [Card]Naish Sheskiin for a Boss A: 1[Card]Shatki, Yadu Officer.

Note: “Boss A” And “Top A” are the same.

We hope this information proves useful.

Thank you for reading and supporting us! We will keep you posted throughout this crucial time for the campaign.

Until the next update!

Last day of the Pledge Manager!

Hello, our beloved backers!

Today, March 18th, is the last day that the Pledge Manager will remain open. However, there are still many backers who have not closed your order yet. That is why we decided that we are going close the Pledge Manager only for new contributions starting tomorrow, and, the backers who have not yet been able to close the order will have until April 1st to do so through Gamefound.

If for any reason, after April 1st there are still some of you who have not closed their order at Gamefound, it will only be possible to close it via email directly with us. In these cases, it won’t be possible to add any items to the order and the shipping costs will have to be made in a single payment (at the end of the year).

We ask for your cooperation. It would be really helpful if all the orders were closed as soon as possible. This way we will be able start production as quickly and accurately as possible, helping us to achieve the expected transit times.

On the other hand, we should use this opportunity to inform you that since last Monday, the pre-order of our new Infinity product: Operation Kaldstrom has been active. A new 2-player battle pack that includes everything needed for two players as an introduction to the Infinity Universe. In addition to this, the new battle box is the starting point of Infinity CodeOne, a simplified version of Infinity with the same dynamism and spirit. If you have supported Infinity Defiance and have never played Infinity before, this is the best time to dive into the Human Sphere. Be sure not to miss it!

Thanks everyone for your support!

They really should be showing much, much more of what the new Code One rules are, and N4, if they really want people who are new or returning to buy into this pre-order.

The current Infinity audience likely already has a lot of these miniatures. Anyone who left Infinity previously is looking to see if the writing has improved, and anyone new will want to know exactly what they're getting into to make them play despite having so many other games available.

Yes, agreed!

"More" would be better here, and now, too.

Pre-Orders are open for...a while longer though, right?

Thanks and...sorry!

I thought I was posting in the 'main' Infinity thread, not the Defiance thread.

I locked my Defiance order in a few days ago - I'm a rule follower!

So, I placed my order back on 3/2/2020, have been watching for the 18th of March, and now it is the 30th, what do you mean close the order? I thought it was all set and waiting for shipping? I await the Megalodron

Closing/locking your order just means you paid for everything you wanted - including shipping.

Shipping is going to be in either one wave or two waves - depending on what you paid for.

From their Kickstarter FAQ:

Users may choose a single shipping or two shippings.

If you choose a two-wave shipping (wave 1 and wave 2) we will send your stuff in two parts, so you will have your game earlier. .

In wave 1, the Core, Collector’s, and Deluxe will be sent, but not the expansion or the add-ons. Excepting cardsleeves and the Scenery Pack. Wave 1 will be shipped in July 2020.

In wave 2, the expansion and the rest of the add-ons will be shipped. It will be shipped in fall 2020.

In short, if you choose the Platinum pledge you may receive the Core, Collector's & Deluxe contents first and the expansion and addons later, or all at the same time in wave 2. Of course, receiving everything together saves you money in shipping costs.

If you choose a single shipping we will send everything in wave 2.


Not sure where the Megalodron fits in that schedule though - sorry!

Theoretically and hopefully wave 1, if nothing goes (more) wrong with the ongoing pandemic.

Just amended my shipping address, and locked it in, I ordered just the Megalodron.

And hoping all at Corvus Belli and their families are doing well during this trying time.

Alternative enemies of the Core box

Hello dear backers!

How are you? We hope that you are all healthy and respecting the measures imposed by governments to stop the spread of Covid-19. At CB, we are all well. Part of our team is working remotely from their homes and we keep working hard on our projects, including of course, Infinity Defiance.

Today, we wanted to show you some Core enemy cards. You know that the Shasvastii, along with the Nox, Cadmus and company, are the basic enemies in the game - but you also know that there are alternative enemies, such as Morats and Onyx. We bring you a couple of enemies from each of these two groups so you can see how scary they are:








As you can see, they are fearsome enemies that are going to turn the Defiance mission into a very complicated journey. For example, the Oznat has a passive ability that allows the ever annoying Gakis and Pretas to return to the game board at no cost at the end of the round. You will have to deal with it as soon as possible!

If you think the Oznat seems dangerous, what do you think of the Umbra Samaritan? Those 12 health points together with his ability to heal himself when he inflicts wounds will make him truly fearsome. You will have to devise a good strategy and improve your characters in order to defeat the enemies of the Human Sphere!

These are the alternative enemies inside the Morat and OnyxReinforcement Pack . If you had no interest in these packs (or you already have the miniatures), don't worry, because both the profile cards and their tokens are included in the Core.

Lastly, the deadline to close your pledges at Gamefound ended on April 1st. If you have any problems or queries, or you could not finish your order, be sure to write us to contact@corvusbelli.com

See you in the next update!

The stock on solo modes certainly increased dramatically this month.... I'm super tempted to pick up the MonPoc coop expansion now.

News! At long last, the unboxing of the core, collector and scenery pack. This is the wave 1 stuff. No mention of the Agnes mini. Maybe it is wave 2?
Also, Dead Fusiliers.




Everything looks good.

Not at all, the whole thing was KS exclusive. They do not even plan to release the miniatures as separate products for Infinity.
This was a one time chance I'm afraid.
