Published February 23, 2018


Candy Double, the celeb Maya star and famous investigator, has discovered a Combined Army plan to alter the Dark Mist technology spread on planet Dawn, turning the visual interference clouds into a mortal weapon to everyone who gets near them. An emergency team has been sent to the Onyx Force clandestine processing facilities in Novyy Cimmeria to find out how to disconnect this corrupting technology. It is of vital importance to complete the sequencing analysis to obtain the necessary data that will allow to nullify these lethal clouds. But it is also very important to stop Candy Double, the Maya star that must not reveal to the rest of the Human Sphere the extent of the EI plans on Dawn, to avoid panic from spreading through the population.

Dire Foes Mission Pack 8: Nocturne

Background

“Night Operations have a bad vibe. It’s better not to draw attention to them.”

At least, that’s what the Private Military Companies slang says., That’s also where the eighth edition Dire Foes draws its title.

This background mission revolves around the events of the Third Offensive. After the Combined Army attacked Paradiso, the Shrine-city of Vedi has gone from being a tourist complex to become the main refugee reception center. NGOs expand their influence wherever civilians are in danger. Unfortunately, it seems that not only humanitarian aid is arriving at Vedi, but also the birth of an emerging black market.

Susan Harlow is the NGO Freedom International Coordinator, which aims to put an end to this situation. That’s the main reason the fearsome criminal association Druze Bayram Security will try to get her out of the way - no matter the cost.

However, Susan is protected at all costs by StarCo, the Free Company of the Star - owner of NGOs so powerful as Freedom International or Children Protection.

Knauf and Arslan will compete in the middle of this conflict to achieve completely opposite goals and relive the old bitter resentment arisen during the events of Infinity: Outrage.

Published May 17, 2019


Dire Foes missions come back with its 8th edition including the main character from the Outrage comic. This box contains three miniatures - Knauf, Outlaw Sniper, the Security Chief Arslan, leader of the Druze Bayram Security, and an NGO Volunteer.

This Mission Pack is the perfect way to immerse yourself in the Infinity Universe, playing with miniatures from different factions in order to complete the story-based mission: Nocturne.

If you love to just collect miniatures, you can’t miss the Outrage miniatures box - but if you prefer competitive play, here is a good list of Infinity profiles to play alongside your Dire Foes miniatures: Brawlers set, Druze Shock Team, Anaconda Mercenary Tag, and Corregidor Alguaciles.

Dire Foes Mission Pack 9: Datacash

Background

No one likes having competition, and Tunguska likes it less than most. This is evidenced by their relative lack of business rivals in the whole of the Human Sphere. So when a group of entrepreneurs tries to establish a small data haven in a old, stranded freighter orbiting a gas giant in Human Edge, expect Tunguska to react—especially if this data haven is a direct competitor of the Novyy Bangkok branch of the Bank of Tunguska. This is one of those situations the Nomad mothership takes personally, which means that Dragnet has its sights set on both this datacrypt’s databanker and its master server. But of course when this business venture is actually a covert parallel-financing operation of the Hexahedron, real trouble is certain, because it won't be a private security detachment that responds to the intrusion alert, but an immediate reaction unit from the Varuna Snake Eaters or maybe from some Neoterran elite corps. So, that's how Jelena Kovac, a police inspector breaking international laws, and Richard Quinn, a professional executioner forced to protect someone, crossed paths.

Published January 1, 2020


To keep their primacy in the data banking business, Tunguska must sweep aside any competitor, even if that competitor is a covert parallel-financing operation of the Hexahedron. But PanOceania knows about the fight for primacy, and the Fusilier Indigo Richard Quinn is going to show it to DI Jelena Kovač and her Dragnet team.

Dire Foes Mission Pack Alpha: Retaliation

Background

The StateEmpire’s memory is as good as its willingness to forgive is absent. Hence, it didn’t waste the slightest opportunity to take revenge after PanOceania supported the Japanese insurgents during the Uprising. So, when Yănjīng, its intelligence service, learned that the PanOceanian corporation Minescorp was going to conduct field tests for an innovative and revolutionary new technology to find Nessium, a highly valuable neomaterial, Yu Jing saw this as an opportunity to take its rightful revenge. Swiftly and efficiently, a covert-ops team from the White Banner Army, Yu Jing’s planetary force on Svalarheima, launched an assault on the Minescorp facilities and seized a sample of this technology. Although the objective was not completely achieved, as they failed to destroy this technology’s research data to leave Minescorp with nothing, this strike was seen as a direct attack on PanOceanian sovereignty. So, the wheel of rancor kept turning.

The visit of a Yu Jing ambassador to Odinheim, the planetary capital of Svalarheima, opened a window of opportunity for WinterFor, the PanOceanian planetary force, to capture a high-value target. Even though Odinheim is supposed to be a neutral city, it is in fact surrounded by WinterFor forces and located in the heart of the PanOceanian territory, and hence no one considers it as such. For this reason, a capture and extraction operation in Odinheim would not be diplomatically acceptable. However, Tongue-twister—the codename for the Communications Analysis Office of the PanOceanian intelligence service that engages in cryptanalysis—intercepted a series of messages concerning the ambassador’s itinerary. This diplomat had scheduled a visit to the Lándòng facilities, an apparently insignificant environmental research center located beyond the Boundary Territories in the empty plains of Huangdi’s hinterland. It’s a place impossible to reach without being discovered—impossible unless you have on your team a tracker and Troll-Hunter like Gunnar Lundmark, who can infiltrate and exfiltrate a hunting party along routes unknown to the Yu Jing mapping service itself. Of course, this is easier said than done. This mysterious ambassador has recruited as his personal bodyguard Imperial Agent Adil Mehmut, an extraordinary operative with a special interest in keeping the diplomat safe. Who knows? Perhaps Gunnar’s hammer has found an anvil it’s incapable of breaking.

PanOceania knows that a power does not maintain its supremacy by allowing any attack against it to go unpunished. Following the events in Kaldstrøm, a representative of the Yu Jing diplomatic corps who is visiting Huangdi will be the target of a team led by Troll-hunter Gunnar Lundmark. Of course, with Imperial Agent Adil Mehmut of the Special Division as the diplomat’s bodyguard, the task will not be easy.

With this box you can not only expand your collection of Infinity CodeOne miniatures, but you will get new options for your army—giving them personality with these two heroes—and also a neutral model to play missions and scenarios.

Dire Foes Mission Pack Beta: Void Tango

Background

While trying to protect the interests of her fellow prospectors, a space miner is caught in the crossfire between a Shasvastii raiding force and an O-12 Bureau Aegis team that believed it was just going to take down a corporate scheme. Tunnel-crumbler sargosh wants to capture her to find out how much she knows and who else she’s told, while casanova cannot help but act like she’s a damsel in distress — even if she’s no damsel at all!

Published October 23, 2020


What could possibly have kept Casanova, that handsome devil, away from parties at embassies and dragged him to a dump like Hlökk Station, a mining facility in the Brísingamen Asteroid Belt? What seemed like a no-brainer mission for O-12, investigating Minescorp's dirty laundry, has turned out to be a Shasvastii covert operation. And Sargosh, the Jayth Tunnel-Crumbler, will not let Casanova thwart it, not even if some prospector gets in the way, no matter how pretty she is

This box includes 3 miniatures: the NOC Operative Casanova, Sargosh, Tunnel-crumbler of the Jayth Cutthroats, and a Prospector, a freelance space miner.

With this box you can not only expand your collection of Infinity CodeOne miniatures, but you will get new options for your army—giving them personality with these two heroes—and also a neutral model to use in missions and scenarios.
