Last week, I gave the small crop of Tunguska units a try as a sectorial, presuming a few things like Fireteam: Core on the Grenzers, and AVA2 (at least, hopefully!) Transductors, with my opponent’s permission. Here’s the result of that game and my thoughts on “Tunguska” as-is.
I was watching this battle by Guerrilla Miniature Games of Tohaa vs Military Orders. And I saw comments like this:
No. This battle is not your crystalline example of Tohaa Balance™. But it was a very good example of some very bad plays. Follow along in this smartass article as I go through Ash and Owen’s battle play-by-play and give my commentary.
My thoughts on Infinity’s factions after 12 months of Human Sphere. Because I am rating factions on a scale of 1 to 5, I don’t see how it’s meaningful unless at least 1 faction gets a 1 artichoke rating, and another gets a 5 artichokes rating. This rating considers factional context, and model availability and obsolescence. On a strict rate of balance, nothing would get lower than a 2 or 3. With that said:
There are currently a couple new discussions on the forum now mulling over our possible future new TAG or pheroware hacker. We have seen Corahtar L1, Pheroware, and the native Pheroware skill on the Kaauri, but as of yet, we have not seen Corahtar L2 to give us the whole package. Now, I am as curious as the next artichoke to see what our new “phacker” will be, but it occurred to me tonight that the next platform to receive it might coincide with the allusions of new Heavy Infantry from the Ectros fluff.
The Taqeul has raised a lot of eyebrows with Tohaa players. It has a few fans, but overall, it is regarded as a sub-par unit. On the whole, I wouldn’t disagree with the assessment that it is a sub-par choice, but I still want to share my thoughts―since it looks like Corvus Belli has Tohaa models at the very bottom of all its priorities. Taqeuls in May?
The resources that exist that allow you to build armies in Infinity are Points, Special Weapons Cost, “SWC”; and Availability, “AVA”. However, given the types of options and restrictions that exist in Infinity, I think there may be room in the future for a fourth army resource. This is a pure game theory article, as I consider what might be if, down the road in Infinity, Corvus Belli introduced something like “CRC”, Command Resource Cost.
I wrote the following to throw in the black hole of ideas that is the Access Guide to the Human Sphere, but received a 500 internal error in trying to post. So it’s posting here. More “real” content to post later this week.
