    I always thought that the old Magistrates were superior than the new ones. Their "in motion" stances look so much better then the current static ones.

    Thank you! I'm really pleased with how my painting has come along across the last two or three models, especially with the edge highlighting and I feel I am getting a lot braver with doing quite big contrasts too.

    And yes, I very deliberately made the choice to buy the old magisters rather than the new, the only one that I dislike is the one from the MO starter box as it feels very blockey, and doesn't have the natural feel of some of the others. I suspect the new Magisters will be a joy to paint (much like the new Hospitaliers), but the only model I am sold on really is the missile launcher.

    Guys guys guys.

    My online order of Third Offensive just shipped from Goblin Gaming. It should, hopefully arrive tomorrow! I know it won't contain the new profiles, but I am still excited!

    very jealous, hopefully we'll see the army update next Monday
    It sucks that a holiday I don't even like will probably end up delaying my local store from shipping my Varuna starter

    Would you mind giving an impression of the fluff (particularly for the loss of ASA and, if it's not too much trouble, the various YJ stuff)? You don't need to quote anything, or post pics. Just an overall impression as to how much sense it makes.

    I haven't even ordered the book yet, after getting burned on Uprising.

    I can try! I have been playing for less than a year though, so all the fluff is relatively new to me... But then I haven't been burnt...

    Thanks!

    Just a "yeah, this makes sense, this bit didn't" level of discussion is good enough for me.

    The last month, two of the spanish infinity podcasts gave some insights of the lore:

    The first one has an awesome 3 hour interview with Gutier Lusquiños (the man behind the infinity lore fyi). It was kind of spoiler free but they hinted the main plot points

    https://www.ivoox.com/29554614

    Later, another podcast dropped some spoilers of the outcome of the Third Offensive narrative and gave us information about VIRD and MO new link compositions.

    https://www.spreaker.com/user/10784969/o-c-1x6-tercera-ofensiva

    So if anyone understands spanish and want to know more about the fluff, I highly recommend to listen both

    Would you mind giving us a small summary of the new fireteam options? I don't speak spanish at all sadly.

    Guess the only bad part is the Teutons.

    I can't really figure out what to do with them. The only thing I can come up with is a DoTanko-style mixed link of 2x Teutons and 3x Magisters:

    Why not all magisters and 1 Teuton? Maybe Teutons get some bump, and become useful. Until then, it's a pretty cheap HI link. Which doesn't do much :)

    That spitfire should be 1.5 SWC maximum. I don't understand why the Santiago is 1.5 and the Teuton has to be 2.

    Other than that, the profile with EXP weapon and berserker sounds good to be part of a fireteam with Santiago Knights and Magister Knights. At least for the fun of destroying thins in close combat.

    Why not something like this :

    The Teuton FT is our cheap HI link option. You can support it with a Tikbalang if needed and still have room for support.

    The thing is that the new Santiago Spitfire looks much better and useful. It's 6 points more, but you get 360 visor, D-charges, E/M grenades, nanopulser and he is a specialist. Also you're saving 0,5 SWC.

    I'm really hoping they also get some rework and new models some day soon.

    Because the swc cost of any heavy weapon in a HI is by default 2 SWC. Santiago get a discount, but that's something special. You can't intend to have swc discounts everywhere, for the sake of balance.

    Being able to drop Konstantinos into (nearly) any Knights Fireteam is certainly an interesting option.

    Just how good the other Order Sergeants might be in that role will depend on the option changes they get.

    There are a few odd exceptions, though. Father-Knight and Tanko MLs, Joan, Daofei and Neema Lt's. Not counting Ariadna.

    Still, As it is there's absolutely no reason for Teutons to get SWC discount out of thin air. After rework - we'll see.

    Anyone hoping for a OS TO FO sculpt after the rework?
