Infinity EXCLUSIVE: Steel Phalanx Support Pack

Corvus Belli has an all new set of minis for you eager BoLS readers to check out!

 

Steel Phalanx Support Pack

The Support Corps of the Assault Subsection of the SSS is composed entirely of specialists, both combat engineers and field medics. The Steel Phalanx was conceived as a purely offensive force, but the stagnation of the Paradiso conflict spread the always scarce Sophotects too thinly, forcing the SSS to create a new support unit capable of keeping up with the rest of its heroic troops.
In Greek Mythology, the supernatural beings called Dactyls (in Classical Greek: Δάκτυλοι, ‘Fingers’) were magical smiths and healers who discovered iron and metalworking. Their Phalanx counterparts are all master demolishers. Explosives are their forte and very few troops in the Sphere can boast their level of proficiency with D-Charges and plastic. They have blasted bridges and facilities and mined roads on every Paradiso front. They can repair gear and treat their fallen brothers in arms, but their ability to fulfil their objective under enemy fire is not what makes them a valuable asset to the SSS. Dactyls shine in the finesse they demonstrate in the exercise of their job, be it an emergency surgery in the middle of the battlefield or a controlled demolition. Their nimble fingers make only the most precise movements and their full attention is on the desired outcome, whether an in extremis rescue from the clutches of death or an explosion to collapse the entire building.

~These should be coming to the Online Store any time now.  
  • The models aren’t new, this is a repack. Corvus Belli is trying to make it easier for stores to carry their models by reducing the SKU count.

      Interesting. How is pricing, the same, cheaper or more expensive then their separate packs?

      • It’s hard to say. The two helper bots currently come in a pack with a Sophotech and 3 Netrods for a about 26 Euros. The two Dactyls are currently sold in separate blisters for about 10 Euros each. I haven’t seen pricing yet, but at 30 Euros, I’d call it about even. If they price it the same as other support packs, 26 Euros, it will be cheaper.

      I wouldn’t even say it’s to reduce SKU count. Putting 2 Blisters (plus 2 Models from another box set) in 1 new Box and keeping the blister available (they did that before) is rather increasing SKU count. 😉
      I’d rather say that the did that to give players the option of getting the Servant Bots for the dactyls without having to buy the other support pack.

      • It definitely benefits Steel Phalanx players who used to have to buy models they won’t use to get the bots, but Carlos said in an interview that they were repacking some minis together to reduce the number of SKUs. Infinity currently has a LOT of blisters.

        • BenTheMan

          True.
          But in this example, keeping the dactyls available in blisters would be nice.
          I for one, already have one of the dactyls and the 2 Servant Bots.
