Come see what’s inside the new Infinity “Starter” box from Corvus Belli – It’s Operation Red Veil!
We got our hands on a copy of Red Veil at GenCon 2016 and I’m excited to get to finally show-off the contents of this new two-player starter for Infinity!
Hopefully this new set didn’t come as a surprise to anyone. We covered the announcement all the way back in July. But if you didn’t know this set pits Yu Jing vs Haqqislam in this new box. This box features two new re-sculpted starting forces for each faction and two new exclusive miniatures for each faction – only available in this set.
Aside from the awesome miniatures for Infinity this set has everything you need to start playing right out of the box. Just like we saw with previous releases for Operation Ice Storm and the USAriadna Box as well.
While it might not seem like much the gaming mat as well as the buildings all fit together thematically to really enhance the game. There is just something about playing on terrain that is as flashy as the setting that really makes the game come alive – even if they are card stock punch-outs. I wouldn’t be dismissive of the terrain either because it’s actually quite sturdy and will hold up your models right out of the box. However, if you’re in a gaming group I would recommend using some type of adhesive to assemble them. Groups tend to put a lot more wear-and-tear on terrain than individual gamers.
Overall, this new starter set is a fantastic offering. You get some great new models, rules to play, dice, a mat, terrain, tokens, templates…Pretty much everything you need to start playing Infinity. Corvus Belli now has 3 different starter sets covering 5 different factions so far. I wonder what’ next years boxed set will be…
