Welcome to a review of some of the exciting and shiny things that AoWS are criting out at the moment.
Today I am going to be looking at some of their Infinity products.
Super bag of goodies….
Price – £1.99
First up some of the mine tokens available, these are nice and simple with the token plus upright section. You will not lose the token in this yellow 🙂
The connection is snug and should stay that way for a long time, without the need for glue.
The skull I love and the work with the laser is amazing 🙂
Finally the wording comes up really well with a lick of paint. Altogether a great little set. There are other mines available (website is an Aladdin’s Cave of goodies)
Price – £7.99
Now for the really exciting bit the new batch of infinity tokens, that are slightly smaller than the usual ones. Which I think is really helpful as they take up less real estate on the boards and so are less intrusive.
So this core set is literally a mixed-bag of colourful plastic.
A boy do we get a healthy amount of stuff, although for those doing tournaments or lots of 300pt games a few more tokens maybe needed. However this is a great starting point for those starting the game.
10 Regular Order tokens
Nice tokens that match the colour of orders we see for regular ones
1 Lt. and 4 Command order tokens
I love the command tokens something very different which is right for these in the game 🙂
3 Retreat tokens
I love the flag for this one, such a shame they couldn’t do white plastic for them..
3 Prone Tokens
I would have liked a couple more of these just in case I choose to hide all my army, not necessary I would like to think but perhaps 2 more maybe?
2 Irregular and 2 Impetuous Order tokens
This is probably a reasonable number of these tokens as it is going to be hard to have a catch-all number with some many possibilities in Infinity.
Extras – 3 Unconscious, 2 Wound, 2 Suppressing Fire, 1 Spearhead tokens
With how quickly my models die I would like to see some more unconscious tokens in the set, but that is my only issue.
The quality is top-notch (with only really some of the tinee tiny lines not being cut perfect) and for the price you are going to struggle to find a better deal.
Now these are the newer tokens which are smaller than what people may be used, so will come down to personal choice but I for one like that the smaller ones take up less room on the board and as such are as distracting (on flip-side you may forget about them, but with my memory they could be frisbee side and I would still forget).
As mentioned the core set is great for those getting into Infinity or transitioning from the starter set cardboard tokens. But for those ITS lovers you are probably going to need extras of the key tokens like orders and if like me unconscious. Handy they do offer booster packs for various tokens so you can pick and choose what you need 🙂
Overall, great tokens to have..
