Infantry Miniature Question

9 posts in this topic

I thought that I would try to fill out a few holes in my CAV collection, and start by picking up a couple of packs of infantry. But, it looks like the names have changed yet again and I cant find the packs that I made a note of in the past!

 

Caan anyone tell me the new names for....

 

- regular infantry with heavy weapons

- regular infantry with heavy mortars

- infantry grenadiers

- assualt grenadiers with heavy weapons

- heavy infantry with light mortars

 

These used to come in packs of three, but now a few are only available as single sprue.... are these 1/3 of the previous packs? Want to pick up some bits so I can finish off my forces before the entire system, scale and packs are all changed again!

 

Thanks.

Go to the CAV:(ugh)SO section of the store as they are all there. Regular Infantry is now Light Infantry and Heavy Infantry is now PA Infantry.

Ah, thanks. Its the 'regular = light' and 'heavy = PA' that I was missing.

Can I also check that the Nomads are still sold as a pair for the $8?

 

EDIT - Also, a load are noted as 'no longer used in CAV' and/or are being 'rescaled for CAV:SO'. Does this mean that they will be disappearing from the store and no longer be available?

 

EDIT2 - Does this then mean that the 'regular infantry with heavy mortars' are now 'light infantry with medium mortars'?

 

EDIT3 - So, what the hell are Grenadiers now, then? This is crazy.

-- OK..lets answer your questions one at a time...

 

The nomads are still 2 for 7.99 under the robot supply depot and cast in the P65 metal. There are no models that wont be used in CAV any more. Some are being rescaled or resculpted but their old versions remain available under the robot supply depot and will continue to do so.

 

Regular infantry is light infantry going forward. Light infantry have no armor other than their helmets for the most part. So regular infantry with heavy mortars are now light infantry with heavy mortars. I dont see that pack being listed right now so I will get with kit to see where it is.

 

Going forward heavy infantry is infantry wearing non-powered armor. PA infantry is powered armor infantry. The new rules make no distinction for grenadiers so they are no longer listed.

 

Best

Thanks. One more question.... What are the infantry pack that were listed as Grenadiers now listed as? I bought two packs of these and I would like to grab another couple to expand the formation, but I am not sure what those miniatures are currently listed as.

Ooohhhh. Thanks. So...

 

Infantry Grenadiers = PA Infantry (24536)

Assault Grenadiers with Heavy Weapons = PA Infantry Panzerfaust (24535)

 

Sorry for being a pain, but I am in the UK and so I need to get this right.

If you could update me when/if Light Infantry with Heavy Mortars are available, that would be great. Thanks.
