    Actually, does anyone have a resource to show the equivilants between GW / Valljo and Scale75? The one I use doesn't have Scale75.

    I'm assuming Giraldez is doing the big releases, boxes and highly anticipated models and the like. While the less demanded and single mini stuff is being handled by others. Unfortunately the next YJ release isn't till October with the Celestial Guard resculpt.i reckon Giraldez will do those, but it's a few months away. But if I were to guess I'd say they're going to continue with his method in his two books.

    Ah, now you mention it in see what you mean. It's more vibrant like the old.models. Maybe it's a different painter. I know Giraldez doesn't only do Infinity models anymore and CB have had to bring in new painters to pull up the slack.

    As wiper said. It's down to taste. The majority of GW models leave me cold, but what really drew me inti Infinity was the rules. There's no better representation of modern small arms combat. Deadline v1 came close with its supression mechanic, but since that got removed I've become bored with that system.

    You mean the dossiers? The CB dossiers always are n slightly different shades to the Giraldez paint jobs. Check the ORC trooper I posted against the blue from the paint jobs. I don't know why.

    Thanks guys! Seems watching all you guys is finally paying off. The Hospitaller is good, but its WIP is still only 13, which is standard for every other faction. Plus the Frenzy is an issue. His ARM 4 is great, but when he becomes impetuous it's always only ARM 4, which is what a stndard Medic is in cover. It shines in Military Orders when you put him ina fire team, but on its own it's a bit too much of a liability for me. If I I were making a list and needed a hardy button pusher I'd pay the extra few points for the father knight FO, or better yet Assault Hacker. It has better ARM and BTS and doesn't have frenzy. That's just me though. I have taken the Hospitaller Doc on his own before, but it's never done much for me. That's just me though. And yeah, I was checking over that site and the models which have had new sculpts in the last two months or so aren't in there yet. This is the new YJ support pack: Not bad for support models.

    A bit, yeah. It's all cracked, and the right shoulder looks cloudy. The weird part is I did the wolfen at the same time and they turned out fine. Thankeekindly. Re the yujing, most factions are the same way with doctors. PanO's model is one of the oldest there is, and it's not getting a resculpt (the YJ one was redone last month) because it's based on one of Corvus Belli's employees. At least the YJ model has WIP 13 rather than PanO standard 12. I'm kind've excited at the moment. I'm going to start a new job outside of the city centre, meaning my usual FLGS where I play now is no longer an option. However, I just found out the people who own Knigts of Deice (very good MDF scenery based in Melbourne) run a weekly gaming session at a pub not far away from where I work. They play lots of games from board games to wargames, and Infinity is one of their more popular systems. Plus you can drink beer while you play. So anyway, I'll be poppin along to taht once I'm settled in the new job.

    Sounds like you've got a solid force. The one two of the Hac Tao / Hsien is pretty damn hard hitting. One with MSV lvl two to see through camo, one with camo. The ony better ARO HI out there is the Swiss Guard missile Launcher, and onyl because it has one higher BS. Given those two are pretty expensive though, some Kaung Shi would be good as order monkeys as they'll be doing a lot of your heavy lifting through killing. The Guilang sniper isn't a bad option. The BS isn't great, but the infultartion will allow you to choose a good spot within your preferred range bands, and the camo will further help tip the dice odds in your favour, and doubly so if your target has any sort of camo as they have MSV lvl1. However, you are going to need some button pushers. The Guilang and Ninja are my go tos there, but you have several choices. The Tiger, definitely, and not just the Hacker version. The Paramedic is actually really good. Cheaper, plus you have other good hacker options, so you can spread your options for classified missions. One thing I would suggest is getting the support box with the medic and engineer. If you're going to have to expensive models propping up your force having a medic around could literally save your life. I don't have one and I can feel it.

    Infinity is pretty forgiving when it comes to lists. It's not 100% 'It's you not your list' but it's getting there. So a usable list shouldn't be an issue. Plus I'm finding Yu Jing is the most versatile army I've played with so far. I made the mistake of deciding to start it the week before the JSA split was announced. Luckiy I only wanted two models from the JSA side - the Raiden and the Shinobu, but even with those two I feel their loss without even having played with them. but still, the rest of the list is very adaptable.

    It's a celestial Guard with combination rifle. As it's got a basic rifle it can stand in for a lot of the profiles. You know about Infinity Army, wiper?
