I wish they were. This was my favourite part of this year's Gencon seminar. The name of the segment was "shameless market research." Infinity is the only game I've played in a while that I haven't been inclined to either tinker with or expand. Their rules and setting are just currently that good. Now, like GWs pretentious claim: Corvus Belli are definitely a miniatures company first. Amazing, and very expensive miniatures so I can see them managing to be the GW replacement some long for and achieve a level of quality that others so far have not managed with their Fantasy games. Combining background, tight rules, tournament support with pretty high-end models. I guess my only concern would be how I can continue to feed my family if they ever make this game... because could you imagine Infinity prices at mass battle scale?
I'm probably safe for a little while as this was just their number one pipe-dream, not something to come out next year. But coming out next year: My Second favourite Gencon thing (and much more realistic) is this by Fantasy Flight Games. Not preprinted. https://www.fantasyflightgames.com/en/news/2016/8/5/runewars-the-miniatures-game/
See also: https://youtu.be/TqP9HW4ySvE for a demo by beasts of war. I wasn't really interested but then my son said he liked the looks of some of the models...
Also looks like Andy is making some sort of 9th Age Human list based around Fireforge style Medievals. He may have had reinforcements from Jason, is that because he couldn't face the prospect of facing another 9th Age Orc list (his brother apparently has one.) Could be, I know they scare me. Will be keen to see what Andy does.
And I better get painting.
Thanks for reading.
