Tunguska Interventors (Infinity)

In my last post I mentioned that I got to try Infinity, by Corvus Belli for the first time.  It was just a small introductory game with 3 figures per side.  Just enough to get a taste for the game.  I enjoyed the game, but seeing the figures reminded me just how much I had always been impressed with this range of miniatures.

So I got home and went rummaging through my lead pile.  I remembered that I had purchased a box of their figures on a whim earlier this year.  I have a favorite game store here in town, but it's about a 45 minute drive for me.  So on the rare occasions I make the trip I always plan on purchasing something (just to rationalize that drive!).  Anyway, I was looking through stuff in the store and saw robot pandas!  I didn't have a lot of knowledge about the game of Infinity, which faction was which, or even what was needed to play.  I just wanted to paint some robot pandas because I thought they looked fun.

So there in my lead pile was the box of Tunguska Interventors of the Nomads faction.  They are computer hackers, as I understand it now, that specialize in electronic warfare.  But most importantly they have fast pandas.  No idea what they do, but I plan to find out.

Anyway, here they are... and what looks like my start into the world of Infinity.


This picture was taken by my wife.  I think she did a damn good job.  I'd hire her to take all my pictures, but I apparently can't afford it.  Oh well...

After this back to the little Dwarves... although... there may be something else creeping into the lead pile.  This remains to be seen... muahahaha.

  3. Brilliant! The pandas are great, and who wouldn't want some robot pandas in their lead pile? I love how these little diversions take on a life of their own. I started a table top gaming club at my school this term and one of the pupils brought in Bushido, great fun, small factions and I now have a starter set winging its way to me! The photograph is amazing too!

    1. Thank you Michael. Yes indeed, one moment I just want to paint Pandas and now I find myself diving into a new game with a new friend. I look forward to seeing your Bushido figures take paint. My wife takes a lot of photos of her orchids and violets and so has developed an eye for photography.
