Well, we’ve gone through all the cool stuff―what’s left to scrape through?
Oh yeah! Here’s the review for the most exciting Tohaa unit.
In writing some hopefully helpful advice to a fairly new Tohaa player, I realized an oddity in many players’ common strategy. In Infinity the Game’s current official scenarios, many players have a vestigial organ from the previous edition…
Forward Observers became ubiquitous in Corvus Belli’s Infinity Tournament System. Winning games required seizing objectives, which required specialists, which required a grip of orders, which a standard 10-man group couldn’t do effectively.
Since a specialist was a specialist was a specialist, and the Forward Observer was the cheapest specialist, in most games the “strategy” was (a) find your faction’s cheapest and fastest and smartest Forward Observers, and (b) bring as many of them as possible.
But the current edition is a bit different.
I played a couple games up at Mox again yesterday, and wanted to jot down some thoughts as these games were a “first” for me in a few areas. The first first, is that this is the premier game for me with a fully painted army. This post is a rather stream-of-consciousness blather, so if you like run-on Infinity discussion, this is for you!
