    Not enough SWC either due to the SoF tax :(

    Still possible to do double TAG FRRM though!

    One thing I wonder is will suiciding its own troop in order to heal them be allowed on highly classified ?

    If yes that might change some things.

    PS : I think it's a good idea to have limited insertion. Soldiers of Fortune is better with this lilot. Otherwise it would be Yuan spam.

    And soldiers of fortune had to be here because ... Uprising !

    Really disappointed in this decision. Infinity lite is fine for casual games but for the biggest event in the Infinity calendar?

    I'm probably the most pro-LI player in my local area but even I can see that it shifts the game too much in the favour of certain factions. Also, some people just really don't like the format, feels it dumbs down the game and reduces the impact of player skill.

    Well I just think it is strange that the game prevent you from killing your own troop all the way (unlike malifaux for exemple) but for this singular way.

    But if it's considered fine then so be it. I don't mean to complain. Just to point out .

    PS : just to prevent mis interprétation : no offense against you IJW. You used it two years ago in a game with me and i was very ... surprised at the time. But I bear no grudge at all. It was well played actually. It's just I find it strange rule.

    Really looking forward to it! Love the decision for LI and SoF. I like LI in general, I think the worst parts of infinity tend to be spam related. LI will help games run smoothly and on time, particularly with the number of cultural and language barriers a world tournament that will be present (I'm so glad we at least get to play in English and not Spanish!). I would hate to fly all the way there for Australia just to have a negative play experience because my opponent and I didn't have enough time to negotiate the various little conflicts that arise from the fact we probably play Infinity slightly differently in different countries, and the language barrier always slows the game down anyway.

    SoF is really fun and evens the playing field between factions - now everyone has smoke, good warbands, a hacking device plus, AD, light TAGs, TO and Holo 2 and some reasonable specialists. I imagine most people are just going to run what they are familiar with anyway, but now they have the choice to branch out a little if they like.

    Mission choice are fantastic. Everything except Highly Classified are really "it's not your list, it's you" and all factions can compete equally. Personally I think Highly Classified is a questionable choice for any tournament as some factions don't have to make any list adjustments to complete it (eg my Bakunin lists) but others are forced to bring in units just for classifieds (eg Ariadne REMs whose only purpose is to be damaged to get repaired - what even is that?). Having LI for all the capture the zone missions is going to be fun and cinematic - every unit matters and the games will not be over until they're over.

    Overall I am impressed and excited :)

    @ ijw Exactly. That's why I find this highly classified mission strange in infinity ...

    But well if you have classified that implies to reach the hvt and some that implies to heal / repair it might make sense as the opponent is facing dilemma.

    Yes, but the rules say:

    • All the miniatures submitted to the contest must be original pieces or conversions of INFINITY miniatures. The organization reserves the right not to accept conversions that have a high percentage of components outside the INFINITY brand.
    More information here:

    Thanks for this info. So, the mini don't need to be stock, and we can move position of armes or weapon.

    Thanks :)

    Hi guys !! I do not know if it's the right thread, but I had some information to ask. At most I open a thread in the offtopic section. As I will come to the Interplanetary alone I wanted to ask if there are any structures (hotels, B & B, etc ..) affiliated or if someone from the place could recommend something for a good price. And maybe meet someone of the participants in the previous days since I will arrive in Vigo on 15/08. Thank you !!
