I went with Tohaa as my first (and quite possibly only) Infinity force. Aesthetically, they hit all the right buttons. I haven’t come across a model I don’t like yet, which is a rarity as even though I love my Menoth, there are still models I don’t really care for in that regard (same goes for every faction in WM/H actually). So A+ there.
Playstyle-wise, so far the Tohaa seem a bit horde-ish to me as many lists I build have more than 10 models (conversely, the Haqqislam list I was initially going with was just 8 models if I remember correctly). You can make lists with less by using more Symbiote Armor (again awesome) troops or taking heavier weapon loadouts however.
By the time you read this, I will have already made my choice. But hey, I’ll share anyway!
I’m typing up my initial impressions of Infinity currently, so look for that in the next week or so, along with a slew of new content as motivation has taken me once more (I hope).
In the meantime, I got back to painting my Tohaa because, well, it’s only 13 models at the moment (with plans for a couple additions soon as they are released) so it shouldn’t be a big deal to get a fully painted force ready.
Here are a pair of Sakeals (a unit I love so far). The red is what I was originally planning for my Tohaa, as a take on a flesh-and-bone scheme. Over the weekend, I was bit by the desire to paint (finally), so I got to work on this new version. I’m really liking the blue now because of how it stands out more and is quite different from the stock studio scheme.
My current goal is to have around 75% (so 9 models) of my Tohaa painted for by return back to gaming in about 2-ish weeks.
