From the website:

This year CB will heat the summer with the release of its first Battle Pack!

Operation: Icestorm will be available in September and it is a totally new product in the Infinity catalogue. A box containing 14 miniatures belonging to two different armies, an introductory ruleset, scenery, dice… everything you need to start collecting Infinity or just to complete your collection!

Apart of that, Operation: Icestorm is the way to be introduced in the Infinity 3rd Edition, the largely awaited revision of this game, as it includes a full color 64 page rulebook (English/Spanish) with 5 tutorial missions to learn to play, making easy to understand the Infinity core mechanics.

In this book you will also find the background and troop profiles of all the troops of the Battle Pack, being 3 of them totally new! There is also a brief guide to the Infinity universe and advices about how to deep more on it.

Operation: Icestorm contains 2 totally new and re-sculpted Starter Packs of two different factions, PanOceania and Nomads. And it also includes 2 exclusive miniatures, one per faction, only available in this Battle Pack. A total amount of 14 highly detailed metal miniatures!

And to fulfill the game experience, the Battle Pack includes ready-to-play cardboard scenery (4 buildings and 6 containers), a game mat, 6 twenty-sided dice (3 PanOceanians and 3 Nomads), and also cardboard Markers, Templates and a measurement ruler. Everything you need to start playing!

I was born at a very young age. I plan on living forever. So far, so good.

    That looks quite appealing. It has nice production value for a bunch of cardboard.

    I pretty much had to give up mini gaming because of the kids. But now the oldest is old enough to start getting into it and this is coming out right in time…

  • Repeter

    elril, are you the same good fellow who drove out to Milwaukee to demo Infinity for me? If so, I am still playing and think this little set looks nice to demo with. If not…well, I still think this set looks like a nice demo package. πŸ˜‰

    NOOOO!!

    All the money and time I wasted buying plastic and plaster terrain sets, painting them…all to be upstaged by such nicer looking (even if a bit blocky) scenery direct from HQ. New players to the game sure are lucky!

    This is really what Mantic should have done with deadzone. I was so disappointed with their terrain kit, both in form and function.

    I’m so scited (as my 3 year old says…still trying to teach her the “ex” part)!!!

    They don’t say it in this press release, but the larger cardboard buildings are designed to slide over the minis boxes for Infinity to give them extra stability. Kind of a nice touch.

    Anyone see where they list how big that game mat is?

    • Hi Repeter, mat is exactly a DinA1, that is 84x59cm aprox. Cargo lanes on borders are 10cm and download areas another 10… so you can use them as reference for 10 and 20 cm deploy lines.

      Boards cand be put toghether to form a 1×2 (84x120cm) gaming surface or 2×2 (168x120cm) gaming surface. Which is great πŸ™‚

      The idea is to have a smaller boart to be up to the missions and list size for the battle box.

      I hope that helps πŸ™‚
