What will the enemies be? Here's hoping for a bunch of Hormagaunt-looking swarm of Pretas/Gaki finally redone. Maybe some Shasvastii as well. It'd be an excuse to give them a resculpt and the reason they've benn hidden from us since the new book.


The Taigha Creatures from Shasvastii were mentioned.

I'm pretty sure all, or most, of the enemies are CA. Wouldn't surprise me to see some Druze though.

gamenerdz jumped the gun. New box preorder for operation Wildfire and it's probably the most expensive one with a retail price of $132 (discount price of $92.47).

Dono. No official announcements yet, probably June as normal, and there's nothing more then what I posed on the Gamenerdz page.

Got to have a lot of stuff or some really big stuff for it to be $30 more then past boxes.

It could be a TAG for each side, although $30 extra for a TAG is on the cheap side. But it would be something they haven't done before. I think its more likely that it comes with a few extra troops to make a full 300 point list. Something like a regular 2 player starter + the Beyond box. Although I was under the impression that the Beyond boxes sold really well and were a great gateway into the game for new players after the 2 player starters, so its hard to imagine they'd want to give that up. Maybe new non-paper terrain?

What armies do we think it will be? We've never seen CA in a 2 player starter, so Shas seems likely. Tohaa seem like a good fit, except they just got a big release, and it would be weird (but cool) to see two new Tohaa starters in just 6 months. Maybe one of the N3 armies? Is there any speculation? I've been ignoring Infinity for a few months.

They could be smaller TAGs to explain the cheaper price, or only one side has a TAG.

Thats true. The Sphinx is pretty small, and (if I remember right) didn't cost as much as other TAGs.

Sergeant Cadin Donn will always be at the forefront of any operation. His unhealthy thirst for adventure has earned him the well-deserved nickname of 'Firststrike' among his peers.

And in the Cateran's case, significantly adds to the price. :( It's a single model that costs the same as a two-model blister.

Probably will not be Ariadna or Aleph, since they were in the previous Operations box. I think Shas is a good bet because we have not received a lot of their models and we know they are coming soon. Invincible Army, Varuna and Spiral Corps. all have new starter sets. Maybe this one will be for Ramah Taskforce (although the basic Haqqislam starter works really well for Ramah...)?

They literally said when it dropped that the Haqqislam starter was Ramah.

Well, not sure whom we would get since all the other candidates have new starter sets. Maybe something for Foreign Company or Dashat?

Apparently, they've said no O-12 this year.

Right now, the contenders are a new NCA box(needed) vs Shasvastii--which could work since the Shasvastii have been trying to infiltrate Neoterra.

I could still see Tohaa, but I think part of that is wishful thinking.

Nope! Tohaa got Spiral Corps. Nothing is slated for them other than a range purge.

I used Mystery for a reason. They could pull a surprise with something that's not been in the fluff. Doubt it but it's a possibility. Though I do agree that a PanO starter would make most sense. Restart all the boxes, keep PanO in first of the new round, discontinue Icestorm.

Or they make a starter for one of the new mercenary companies.

The new Vallejo paint sets for Infinity. Images from facebook via the Official Forums. Images are a bit much, so spoilered
Spoiler:

Pan-O

And the LE mini, a bona fide Forward Observer

And the Ousters, er, Space Filth, er, Nomads

And the Alguacil Paramedic

No idea about the price in US$, but if reasonable, I may get the Pan-O set. It would be interesting for me to use Vallejo paints.

...but there's also the attachment on the Combi-rifle. So there's that.

B'sides, how much time and effort do you think CB is going to put into a LE Pan-O mini anyways?

Which means nothing really, since no other FO model has ever had one.

I dunno, how many Joans have there been?

The starter pack Maverick can't be a FO (no shotgun FO option) if you say that about the binoculars neither of the Marauders that sport them can be FOs, the foxtrot might be but he just has the radio that basically all other ariadna models sport on their bacpack
