I'm considering taking the plunge and starting with Infinity since one of my FLGS is now strongly supporting it. I'm thinking of getting the Operation Red Veil starter. Is that a good place to start learning the game? Also, is it worth getting the Beyond Red Veil set as well? Are the factions from that set (Yu Jing and Haqqislam) easy to learn with and possibly competitive? I like the look of the Yu Jing model range overall, so there's that consideration as well.

If this isn't the best idea to start, I'm open to suggestions.

My armies (re-counted and updated on 1/27/19, including modeled wargear options):
Dark Angels: ~11200 | Space Marines (Blood Ravens and others): ~1300 | Space Wolves: ~3400
Inquisition: ~300 | Officio Assassinorum: ~500 | Imperial Knights: ~800 | Talons of the Emperor: ~500
Tau Empire: ~6200 | Chaos Space Marines (various legions): ~8100 | Death Guard: ~2800 | Chaos Daemons (all types): ~2100

Right behind you.

If you like Yu Jing, Red Veil's a great place to start.

However be aware that there's a large number of things that just got cut from the Yu Jing range as part of "Uprising" and the addition of the Japanese State Army as their own 'faction' now.

Red Veil+Beyond Red Veil and the Dire Foes set would be a pretty good starting point for you.

All the factions are competitive. How you play is much more important than what you play.

Yu Jing is not a difficult faction to learn. If you're learning to play Infinity then an extra step while starting (that you'll learn about later anyway) isn't a big deal.

The Starters are excellent for beggining a force. Great to split with a pal and start by using the missions in the book as a way to ease into the rules.

Demos Demos Demos and Campaigns is the best way to build the community.

If you like the minis in the Red Veil box, it is indeed worth getting. Both factions are quite playable and can make for very competitive armies. The Beyond Red Veil "booster' is a nice addition, but not mandatory. (The disclaimer here is that I have both, mostly because Haqq is my main faction. You can see the painted Yu Jing in my P&M blog. link is the image in my sig. No apologies for the shameless self-promotion. )

Remember to check the resources on the Corvus Belli site too, http://infinitythegame.com/, including the free and extremely useful army builder.

Infinity is pretty balanced. Pick a starter set that appeals to you and build from that.
