Infinity is a game with 28mm high metal miniatures that simulates combat and special operations in a science fiction environment with Manga aesthetics. Infinity miniatures are characterized by the high quality and detail of their modeling, the dynamism of their postures and their futuristic aesthetic.

I lucked out during a visit to a local chain bookstore "Half Price Books" and found a copy each of the Second edition rules and the "THE HUMAN SPHERE - Expansion Rulebook " both oddly enough at $19.99(US) each... roughly half price!

Image

Slightly earlier I had found a set of the first edition rules for $9.99(US)..... I prefer the cover art on this book.

Infinity.... the game...
My brother is going to GenCon to demo Infinity the game this week. The designers from Corvus Belli will be attending.... a pretty big deal! I'm intrigued that my brother will be taking these Spaniards out to various places to eat, such as Bob Evans and Mexican places......

We played a demo Wednesday night, at the cross-town game store which is still a fairly new place to me. my son and my neighbor ran through the demos while I gave critiques..... My brother knows the game very well, but could use a little showmanship.... He got better as the evening wore on, so he'll do fine.

The miniatures are individually pricey, but few are really needed for a great game, there is a need for good terrain though.....

I've been adding to my collection via ebay and have all but completed my previous miniatures; I have merely basing to consider. I play the Nomads faction.

An excellent video demo series is available on YouTube:

the Company's site is listed below... plenty of free downloadable stuff, including the rules can be found.....

Not my thing as I like to read or watch a show or movie about space, but I do see the attraction people could have with this, I expect Em to have a full set by X-MAS I bet.

Cheers, no idea how I missed this thread when you first put it up???

I've never really explained the factions or background to the game.... I have copied the text from the website.... the language is a little awkward, even a little quaint.... :)

The game borrows from history and Japanese Anime/Manga...

PanOceania
PanOceania is the #1 Great Power of the Human Sphere. It owns the greatest number of planets, has the richest economy and possesses the most advanced technology.

Pragmatic and generous, PanOceania is a melting-pot of cultures, heir to the best democratic and welfare traditions of the West. Proud of itself and somewhat domineering it can claim to have the most technically sophisticated society and army in the Sphere and likes to brag about it.
Image

Yu Jing The other great power, the eternal rival always conspiring and intriguing to bring down its adversary is Yu Jing (Pronounced Yu Ching), the Asiatic giant.
Image

The entire Far East is united beneath the banner of what was once China but which has now formed a single, though varied, oriental culture. Product of great industrial and technological development and a forceful, thriving economy, Yu Jing is determined to achieve the dominant position which it aspires to.


Ariadna
Ariadna is made up of the descendents of the first human colonizing ship that disappeared into a worm-hole and was given up for lost.

Isolated on a remote and hostile planet, the Ariadnes – Cossacks, Americans, Scots and Frenchmen – have evolved into a hard and technologically less advanced race, which has just made contact with the Human Sphere and is trying to carve out a niche for itself without falling under the control of the other powers.
Image

Haqqislam
Haqqislam, the New Islam, is a smaller power which possesses a single star-system only, Bourak.

Separating itself from fundamentalism, Haqqislam bases its culture on an Islam which is humanist, philosophical and in continuous contact with nature. Biosanitary Science and Earthformation are the two major strengths of Haqqislam, which includes the best schools of medicine and planetology in the Human Sphere.
Image

Nomads
The Nomads consist of three enormous ships whose inhabitants, discontented with a society controlled by huge macroeconomic blocks and by A.I., have separated themselves from it and roam through space, trading from system to system.

Tunguska is dedicated to the traffic and storage of information. Corregidor offers skilled labour at a good price, while Bakunin trades in all that is exotic and illegal in whatever area, from fashion to nano-engineering.
Image

Combined Army
And while Humanity devours itself, a new threat, perhaps the most terrible of all, has managed to form a bridgehead in the heart of the Human Sphere.

A Combined Army of alien races, united beneath the dominance of an Evolved Intelligence, an ancient but supreme artificial intellect with hegemonic aspirations with respect to any race that crosses its path.
Image

ALEPH
ALEPH is the unique Artificial Intelligence controlling the data networks and technological systems of the entire Human Sphere.

ALEPH is humanity’s great ally, and without it, intergalactic socio-political and economical systems would fall apart almost instantly.
Image

Mercenaries
Mercenary Companies and “corporate warriors” provide logistic, tactical and lethal support to anyone ready to pay their fees, from a state army to O-12 or the energy industry.

In this situation, the professional soldier is a merchandise that is rented or sold, serving inside a country, in the colonies or forward commercial missions, working for mega-corporations, family mafias, transport enterprises, security companies, information trafficking ventures and much more.

Wow....cool system! I've heard of it, and of course Corvus Belli, but never looked in-depth at the series. The flavor looks a cross between Blade Runner and DUST. Manga is not my thing, but the chicks are HOT!

Hey...wuz up with the Bro? Is he in the industry?
