Dossier Preview: Tohaa Sukeul Commandos

Today we have the intimidating, terrifying, and awesome Dossier for the Sukeul Commandos!

93-ZSukeulCommandosDossier

“They say old soldiers never die. Well, the Sukeul Commandos are formed by nothing but dead soldiers. Every one of its members is a veteran operative, a fatality of a past conflict whose skills were too precious for the Trident’s High Command to lose. The have all been recovered for their combat experience, and the only way to wring out every ounce of it is to keep deploying them. Each of their number has their own tactical specializations, so they get their pick of the crop when it comes to combat gear and armament. As highly trusted agents, they are responsible for the most dangerous Direct Action operations of all, those that fall under the designation Contact and Death, usually too classified to mention. Judging by their past performance, these veterans rarely fail to deliver violence and destruction where it is needed most. Their record sheets are brimming with extraordinary actions and massive body counts, but the details are known only to a select few with the appropriate clearance. On the battlefield, Sukeul Commandos never relax their trigger fingers, firing at will but maintaining startling levels of precision. They laugh in the face of heavily armed assault troops and TAGs alike. They will make an example out of any proud soldier stupid enough to stand in their way. They know every trick in the book and every shortcut to mission cleared. Sukeul never fail. They are the best of the best and anyone in their sights is about to learn their lesson for good. They leverage the experience gained in past operations and former lives to push a little further every time. They are the dead that always come back, and they always come back with a win. This is a superb unit whose members are self-sacrificing but sordid. They have acquired a taste for blood that guarantees conclusive results mission after mission, gunfight after gunfight.”

Tohaa – Kaauri Sentinels

Check out this amazing Dossier we have received for the brand new Tohaa troop profile – the Kaauri Sentinel!

z83-Kaauri Sentinels Dossier 2016 Gris

These little (S1) guys are very cool looking – and that Tohaa SMG design is Legit!

Kaauri

Perhaps the greatest menace to the Tohaa Trident in its protracted war has been the fear and paranoia instilled by the Shasvastii operatives. These underhanded aliens can, through the judicious use of stealth and impersonation, sap the morale of entire units with a single strike, a single assassination. To counteract this insidious threat, the Trident entrusted its Sudiel Section with designing a stopgap solution: an artificial sentry whose watchful eyes would spot any and all intruders. The engineers of the 77 worked tirelessly to improve upon a parasitic life form called Kaaras, a viciously territorial creature that, by tapping into its host’s central nervous system, heightens its senses to detect imminent threats. Specialists from the Sudiel Section subjected this semi-sentient parasite to a process of neural reprogramming, guiding its development into a sort of accelerated, truncated version of Exaltation. Through this process, the species’ intelligence thresholds and submissive tendencies were enhanced, molding it into an obedient but fierce guardian. Once reprogrammed, Kaaras are mounted on mid-range biosynthetic bodies bristling with sensors. When the Kaaras attaches itself to the host’s nervous network, the resulting creature is known as a Kaauri Sentinel. Although their intelligence falls short of true sentience, Kaauri are loyal and deeply devoted to their protective mission. They will readily die to defend their Tohaa masters, and in truth they cannot even contemplate the alternative. It is simply written into their brains.

MayaCast Preview: Clausewitz Uhlans

Today, MayaCast is proud to share with you the long-awaited and much anticipated Clausewitz Uhlan!

“Acta non Verba”
(Action, not Words)

-Motto of the Uhlan Regiment

96d- Uhlan Dossier 2015 Gris

96f- Uhlan3D

“The Uhlan Regiment originating from the Clausewitz citadel in Aquila (Neoterra) is the most famous anti-tank Armored Cavalry unit in PanOceania. As TAG destroyers, its primary function is to provide anti-tank support during combat operations. The pilots of this regiment receive specific training based on hunting and stalking hostile TAGs and armored vehicles. Their operational doctrine encourages movement and the establishment of favorable positions from which to block off an enemy offensive. Its function is so specific that they are not meant to participate in assaults or frontal offensives, as is the case with Squalo series TAGs. On the contrary, an Uhlan is a lightweight, highly mobile unit that only needs to maneuver until it reaches a position of tactical domination where it will camouflage itself to ambush an enemy TAG. These machines move in the middle of smoke and the heat of battle as silently and fluidly as the shadow of a large predator. Thanks to the expertise of their pilots and to their advanced concealment devices, the Uhlans become invisible hunters and stealthy assassins.”

-Human Sphere N3

We think the render looks FANTASTIC, and cannot wait to get this amazing model! Let us know what you think in the comments below, and be sure to tune in later today for Episode 77 of MayaCast!

MayaCast Exclusive Preview: PanOceania Nisse Hacker

This just in from our friends at Corvus Belli: An exclusive preview of the new Nisse Hacker miniature for Infinity: The Game!

Svalarheima Nisses
Nisses are mythological creatures traditionally believed to protect Scandinavian farms. Friendly-looking but superhumanly strong, they are depicted as quick to anger and easily offended. PanOceanian Nisses are a battle-hardened Tactical Assault Group from Svalarheima, created for Protective and Forward Team operations. They might not look quite as friendly as their fantasy namesakes, but their temper and strength are spot-on.
 
Nisses receive special training to be able to operate in icy environments, as befits the extremely harsh climate of their home planet, Svalarheima. Cold environments, such as ice deserts, tundra and mountaintops, can seep the energy from the best of soldiers and extinguish his will to fight. Even worse, intense cold can make otherwise capable combatants become careless and error-prone in an adverse environment where mistakes cost life and limb. Nisses, however, are callous veterans and remain unaffected by the cold. In fact, they know how to make the best of an icy terrain to become even more deadly. When the storm breaks there are no volunteers to go inside and locate the enemy, but Nisses are not afraid of the storm; they are the storm.

Avicenna Renders

Check out these renders of the Avicenna resculpt from our friends at Corvus Belli!

Definitely an improvement, wouldn’t you say? We think she looks great.

Domaru Butai

You’ve seen the blurry iPhone images of projector screens snapped surreptitiously in the dark during seminars – But now feast your eyes on these beautiful 3D renders of the brand new Domaru Butai boxed set for Infinity: The Game!

Sadly, they will not be released this month as anticipated. Instead, Yu Jing players will receive the all-new Guijia sculpt! The Domaru won’t be far behind, though, and will appear in the following month’s release schedule.

Infinity RPG PanOceania Miniature

The Infinity RPG Kickstarter by Modiphius is going strong, and today MayaCast has an exclusive preview of the PanOceania-themed miniature. This version of the miniature is available exclusively to Kickstarter backers. We think Angel did an amazing job on this one!

There are only ten days left in the Kickstarter, and stretch goals are being smashed open with alacrity! Make sure you get in on this awesome deal before it’s too late! Pledge Here!
