Making TAGs Great Again

Posted by Grantt Ennis on

One of the biggest draws of Infinity is arguably the inclusion of TAGs - tactical armour gear. Who doesn’t like giant, ass-kicking future Mecha, working their way through a cyberpunk dystopia, unloading whole barrels of ammunition at the enemy? Ariadna, that’s who. But I digress. TAGs are absolutely cool, from the mere idea of them, to the frankly stunning miniatures that Corvus Belli have produced for them. They are, without a doubt, some of the greatest centre-piece models on the tables, and I honestly want to run them in every single list I play. However, I rarely see them in competitive...

Posted by Grantt Ennis on

Grantt considers a few ideas to make Bakunin a little bit juicier in line with some of the latest changes we've seen to the other factions. Nomads for life. Everyone at Art of War Studios plays games - it’s in our blood - and one of our favourites is Infinity, by Corvus Belli. From the near future, almost anime aesthetics, to the detailed, but fast-paced rules, everything about it gets us just a little excited. If you haven’t tried it, we really do suggest you give it a go; the starter sets are a great value for money buy-in, if you’re thinking...

The Mind Behind Infinity: a Conversation with Interruptor

Posted by Chris Hobday on

One thing is for sure: the narrative that underpins the Infinity universe never stands still. The political and military machinations that provide a dramatic underscore to Corvus Belli’s tactically rich and reactive sci-fi skirmish game are always developing, and we’ve already seen old armies swallowed up and new ones produced as the story unfolds. With the new expansion book, Daedalus’ Fall, the creative minds at Corvus Belli have continued to weave new threads. Old units are getting refreshed with new abilities. Weapons and equipment innovations continue apace and new factions prepare to explode onto the battlefield. Being an Infinity player...
