I've been puttering around with infinity for several years now and whenever they first announced a third edition I was a bit nervous having come from 40K and knowing what that can mean. I have to say that the way corvus belli has handled the transition to N3 by comparison has been very positive. I purchased operation ice storm when it came out with the pre-order exclusive figure and was quite pleased with it. I purchased red Veil because I play Haqqislam and figured that I could sell what I didn't want from this.
Just like ice storm everything about this set is high quality. However, unlike ice storm, the exclusive figure is much more useful. Rather than being limited to being basically an overglorified token the exclusive in this one is actually a useful figure to any faction because it's a mercenary. Now I did not get the Le figure with this because I did not pre-order it unfortunately so I cannot comment on it. However, the models included are extremely nice resculpts. The Ghulam Infantry are incredibly well done. They could be used outside of infinity in any near future scifi or possibly even modern Black Ops type game as well. Aside from the big Power Armor guy pretty much all of the included Haqqislam could easily be near future or modern figures depending on tech but you could probably call most of that something from a Tom Clancy novel LOL.
If you're looking to start Infiniti or play either of the factions in this set definitely pick it up.
Infinity is a game with a steep learning curve, and this boxed set is the to smooth it out a bit. It contains all you need to get started, and that includes two family equally matched play sets and an abbreviated rule book. Once you have mastered this, you'll have figured out if you want to get deeper into the game and can start delving deeper into the rules and adding new pieces. Here's a hint, you will want to.
great set to get you started. quick delivery from GN too!
Great starter for anyone looking to start with a friend or to expand a collection. Minis are very well cast with only minimal mold lines and clean up. Rulebook is sturdy and eases players into new concepts. I do wish they delved further into advanced rules such as hacking but establishes the foundation for more rules. Great buy and even better price here at GameNerdz!
This is a great set for beginners looking to start Infinity. This comes with everything you need. Models, rules, terrain and even dice.
The title says it all - this starter pack is a great introduction for players new to Infinity. I would argue that it has even greater potential for expansion over Operation Icestorm, but both packs are a great buy!
