MayaCast Preview: Kuang Shi

KUANG SHI

Kuang Shi was the name zombies received in the South of China, those that had a soulless body. Currently, the Kuang Shi are something similar, political prisoners or recurring offenders, those who disappear in the dungeons of the Celestial Guard, those who have be subjected to deep brainwashing leaving them reduced to mere human shells that only know how to repeat Ministry of Information propaganda.

Kuang Shi Dossier 2018 Gris

The Kuang Shi have been condemned to a postponed, but useful to the system, death sentence. Judiciary specialists convert them into resolute soldiers capable of sacrificing their lives for who they used to hate the most: the Emperor. Thus, the Son of Heaven gives them the chance to become loyal subjects by giving up their lives in order to redeem their error.

After the period of “political indoctrination” and instruction, they are loaded with incendiary explosives, given a cheap Chain Rifle, and assigned a target. The explosive package they come equipped with has a remote activation device. The Celestial Guard in charge of monitoring them also carries a remote control device that allows them to detonate them whenever they want. If the soldier falls the explosives detonate automatically. If the Kuang Shi disband or retreat the detonation device activates as well.

It is easy to suppose that, generally speaking, these individuals never survive their missions. However, the death of a Kuang Shi tends to be a motive of happiness for the other Yu Jing troops because not only does it mean that there is one less traitor, but that by disappearing he will have eliminated a good number of enemies as well.

This box includes four miniatures: Two Kuang Shi with Chain Rifle, one Kuang Shi with Boarding Shotgun and one Kuang Shi with Pistol.

MayaCast Exclusive Preview: Nexus Operative

MayaCast is proud to show off this exclusive preview of the Nexus Operative of the Combined Army for Infinity the Game!

280687-0688 -Nexus Operatives (Hacker)

Nexus Operatives (Hacker)

The Nexus are one of the most valuable assets available to the Supreme Ur forces. They are true experts when it comes to operating in unpredictable environments. Recruited among the Urkherits, one of the Ur’s favorite tool-subspecies, they are tough and adaptable. They have also been improved through special training taught by the sadistic Umbra. The Nexus belong to the explorer class and have been forged for sounding out the universe – sent to the heart of darkness and the borders of eternity and trained to deal with anything they find there…

Extract from “A Cynical Glimpse of the Universe” by Cal3fex Observer, Cultural Gnomon of the Second Universal Matriarchy.

Nexus Operatives (Hacker)

For hundreds of years, the hills that descended from the Udhit Mountain were one of the prettiest, most peaceful places on that unknown planet. Generations of Urkherits enjoyed the splendor of a privileged, calm setting.  It was a prosperous farming community that always respected its gods and worshipped them according to established practices, receiving clear blessings in return. Until one day, when their gods landed on the mountain peak and demanded a tithe of their best young men to accompany them to the stars and serve them there. These young men would learn new things and discover marvelous places. Every season this happened. The ship arrived and the Urkherits offered them a tithe. Brave young men that would never see their home again because all who left to serve in the stars never returned. Even though they were scared to death, all of these young men took up the call because they knew their people depended on them to maintain the happiness and lifestyle of their community.  These fortunate heroes were envied by many people who stayed on the mountain slopes and lead peaceful lives.

Extract from the Forgotten Annals of the T’Zechi Digesters. Chemo-Memory Block annexed by the Supreme Ur Civilization (post-EI).

Nexus Operatives (Hacker)

The young Dakel would die five days later. Despite his apparently good appearance, his internal wounds had become infected and the Umbra schooling process did not consider any type of medical assistance. In fact, only three comrades in Dakel’s tithe would survive, and only two of these Urkherits would manage to graduate. This is an exceptional figure since surviving Umbra schooling was always an extraordinary feat.

MayaCast Preview: Taskmasters, Bakunin SWAST Team

Today we have for a preview of the new Taskmaster from Corvus Belli for Infinity the Game! Nomad players will be happy to know that two different weapon options will appear in the box: Red Fury and Heavy Rocket Launcher! Looks like there will also be a TinBot and two CrazyKoalas included in this box of 4 miniatures.

Praxis exists for cutting-edge experiments, for scientific anarchy. ‘Fringe technology’ means you’re delving into uncharted territory, and sometimes it goes wrong and stops working. Other times, it goes haywire and becomes an almighty problem. When that happens the Moderators are not enough to cut it, so they send the Tasksmasters to save the day.

280588-0664-TaskmastersScene2.jpg

280588-0664-TaskmastersScene3.jpg

Our home, the place we’re sworn to protect, is Bakunin. Now think for a second what that must mean. You have VaudeVille, right? Packed with weirdos with exotic implants doing designer drugs, Pupniks who lost their owner—little rascals can be quite dangerous when agitated—, Chimeras high on heck-knows-what… Sounds like a darned pain to police, doesn’t it? Shoot, that’s the easy part. The real nightmare is this place right here, Praxis. This is where you have the Black Laboratories and the real weirdos. This place exists for cutting-edge experiments, for scientific anarchy. ‘Fringe technology’ means you’re delving into uncharted territory, and sometimes it goes wrong and stops working. Other times, it goes haywire and becomes an almighty problem. When that happens, the Moderator Corps is not going to cut it, so they send us in to find the weirdness and beat the devil out of it until it stops acting up. It’s never easy, but that’s why we’re the Special Weapons and Suppressive Tactics team, we’re elite. When you’re up against freaking mad science, you have to make your own rules and improvise. And if every once in a while that means taking a bunch of Morlocks and throwing them into the fray to buy us a few minutes and some room to maneuver, so be it. It’s not going to keep me up at night, and if you folks object to that, well that’s your problem. As I said, we make the rules here. Tell us what’s the issue and we’ll take care of it, but don’t tell us how to do it, ‘cause that’s our job. And believe me; we’re darned good at it.

Sergeant 1st Class Brad Corrigan, SWAST-4. Rogue ontodroids-related incident in the Celestial Choir of the Cosmic Power module. Praxis. Bakunin.

The box of Taskmater with two weapon options, TinBot, and two CrazyKoalas releases officially on October 20, 2017. MSRP is $35.99.

Exclusive Preview: Umbra Legates with Spitfire

MayaCast is thrilled to have this exclusive preview of the Umbra Legates with Spitfire for you all to enjoy today!

The Umbra. One of the most dangerous, murderous races in the entire universal warriorhood. Mysterious martial artists from an unidentified planet, the Umbra have been the scourge of the cosmos for ages. Subjugated, dominated or seduced by the EI, they have become its field assistants, a conduit through which the Evolved Intelligence makes its wishes known. They serve as the EI’s heralds, enforcers, mediators, lieutenants, judges, executioners and right-hand men. Their political and military specialty is trouble, and the causing and suppressing thereof. Brought forth by the darkness, these cruel entities hold a fearsome power that the EI harnesses to inflict the worst punishments and lead mass destruction operations as their wrath seethes unmeasurably.

280683-0655-UmbraLegatesSpitfire

“Pray. Pray hard. Pray that your god will help you. If you don’t have a god, make one up now. No one else is coming to save you, now that the Umbra are on their way. And they’ve already chosen you as their prey, so they’re coming at you with everything they’ve got. You have no way to stop what’s going to happen.”

Excerpt from debriefing of prisoner Roob Paavan, Maakrep Unit. Forward post on the Northern Front. Norstralia. Paradiso.

280683-0655-UmbraScene1

“An enigma. A deadly mystery. We don’t even know whether they are living beings in the strict sense of the world. The factual information about them available to us amounts to nothing. All we have is hearsay, and an increasingly long list of casualties attributable to these demons.”

Second Lieutenant Katherine Cho, Psi Unit, O-12 Military Intelligence. Information assembly of the Paradiso Coordinates Command. Map Room of the frigate POS Indomitable. Paradiso far orbit.

280683-0655-UmbraScene2

The Forgotten Annals of the T’zechi Digesters contain statements from long-extinct races that called the Umbra Maat’zani, “the genocides”. The viciousness and ruthlessness of these beings is legendary. According to statements compiled by the T’zechi, the Umbra enter combat brimming with an unbridled desire to wreak destruction, never yielding or hesitating until they rise over the broken, bloodied corpses of their enemies.

Excerpt from Allied operatives and assets in the Paradiso Deployment. A critical evaluation, by analyst-scholar Saari Blaado, adviser of the Sygmaa Trihedron.

280683-0655-UmbraScene3

“Of all the psychopathic, murderous races in the known universe, the EI has chosen none other than the Umbra to bring back. Disregard the EI’s rhetoric and the propaganda of its empire. It is meaningless. Any power that resorts to employing the Umbra cannot be well-intentioned or benevolent. Nothing good can come from the works of these monsters.”

Excerpt from A Cynical Gaze upon the Universe, by Cal3fex Observer, Cultural Gnomon of the Second Transversal Matriarchy.

The Umbra Legates with Spitfire is part of the September Releases for Infinity the Game!

MayaCast Preview: Overdron Batroid

“Beyond appearances, there is always something beautiful and stunning about exceptional tools, those machines which are ideal to carry out their assigned duty. The Overdron Batroids are pieces that represent the perfect connection that comes about unintentionally between functionality and design.”

91-Ovedrone Batroid Dossier 2016 Gris

“They are immense, crude and slow compared to other Batroids. However, just a simple glance will see both the most sophisticated art lover and the most demanding gunsmith overcome with awe. No designer has bothered to soften its techno-organic shapes and no artist has balanced out the sheer volume of muscles that grow so quickly but these represent a celebration of beauty that lacks any aesthetic charm.”

91-zOvedrone Batroid 3D

“In other words, it’s functional beauty.”

92-Tinbots

“They do what they aim to do in an excellent way – the Overdrons have no purpose except to destroy and this is something they do perfectly. It’s not surprising that the Ur grew fond of these Batroids as the Overdrons respond and destroy in a most excellent way.”

Excerpt from A Cynical Gaze Upon the Universe, by Cal3fex Observer, Cultural Gnomon of the Second Transversal Matriarchy

 

This bad boy is FIERCE!

Maybe we should start a petition to get those TinBots made as plushies! Totes Adorbs!
