MayaCast Infinity Preview: Caledonian Mormaer

Today we have for you one of the upcoming May Releases for Infinity the Game – The Caledonian Mormaer with AP HMG!

” Dileas Gu Bas ” (Loyal until Death). Gaelic motto of the First Regiment of Caledonian Mormaers.

In a society like the Caledonians, in which Teseum is the base of clan power, the ostentatious display of this neomaterial is a symbol of both political and military power. For that reason, the Mormaers are the elite of the Caledonian Army. Their armors contain an amount of such incredibly pure Teseum that it offers a protection superior to most of the body armor of the Sphere. The production cost for one of these suits of armor is so high that very few in Ariadna can afford to have it. And the same is true of their weapons, whose ammunition is worth a king’s ransom. It could be said that the Mormaers’ identity is based on Teseum. Because of this, the regimental name, an old noble Scottish title equivalent to Duke, derives from the fact that they are the distinguished elite of the Caledonian troops. Nothing is more prestigious for a clan than to be able to equip and to enlist one of its best men in the Mormaers. Because, in order to enlist in this regiment, the clan is obligated to contribute all of the necessary equipment, weapons, ammunition and supplies for each recruit. This implies a considerable investment in Teseum. For that reason, only the best soldiers of each clan are selected to become Mormaers, many of whom are the most prestigious members of the clan. This is the main reason why the regiment is formed of so many members of the clan elite, and why there are so many family and political ties among them, where few are called by their military rank, being more accustomed to the names “Sire” or “Cousin”. This is why it is said that the Mormaers are the aristocracy of the Caledonian Army. Nevertheless, In spite of being in a line of regiment always deployed when necessary to face exceptional conditions and situations requiring “Victory or Death”, their combat discipline and the quality of their equipment are so extraordinary that their casualty levels are very low, so that their elite identity always remains virtually intact. As complicated as the scenario may be, the Mormaers always impose their own terms, from the beginning to the end of the battle, where the vast superiority of their firepower gives them the first word, and also the last.

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.

280399-0702_KuangShi1

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.

280399-0702_KuangShi2

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.

280399-0702 Kuang Shi

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

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.

280588-0664-TaskmastersScene4.jpg

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!
