Discover it with the “Fleeting Alliance” mission and play this new scenario with its true protagonists!

 Mission accomplished! Or almost. All that’s left now is to evacuate your team from the ship and leave no trace of your presence there. If you can’t get them all out, at least make sure no one who can be interrogated is left behind.
 Now go do what needs doing: turn on the emergency generator to activate the evacuation system so it can’t be deactivated from the ship’s command bridge. Then, get hold of the evacuation console and the Marine Engineering Officer on duty, to keep them from aborting the operation. Doesn’t sound too hard. Unsurprisingly though, there’s bad news and worse news. The bad: for a summit like the one you just sabotaged, even a civilian cruise ship like the SS Stella Solaris has been fitted with armed securibots. The worse: the rival team probably has the same escape plan as you.  You weren’t able to locate the second pass key for the Evacuation System, so chances are they have it. Without it, there is no way out. You need two pass keys to activate the system, and they can only be entered by authorized personnel. Check your comlog: even if you take the key from them, there isn’t time to forge a second authorization. Come to think of it, your enemies are in the same predicament as you, aren’t they? That means you can convince them to strike a truce of some kind until the evacuation system is up and running, and then…then bullets can fly.

Duel of Faiths! Boosted by the highest ideals, the Hassassin Yasbir and Brother Konstantinos fight for the life of the CEO of MagnaObra. Must she pay for the crimes of this corporation, or will she be protected? Who will prevail?
The private shuttle of an influential executive has been shot down during its climb towards low orbit around planet Paradiso. The executive, however, managed to survive the attack by evacuating the shuttle inside a Crash Coffin that has landed in an uninhabited region of the planet. A rescue unit has been dispatched to the projected landing area in order to facilitate an immediate extraction of the executive and safeguard her and the data she was transporting. To that effect, it is imperative that the Distress Beacon in the Crash Coffin be activated, so it can lead the extraction vehicle to the exact landing spot. Be advised, we are not out of the woods yet. Whoever downed the shuttle will surely try to finish the job, even if they have to do it by hand.

And there, in such a hostile environment, is where the Hatail Aelis Keesan and the perfidious Corax Hasht will resolve all their issues with blood and fire!

Releasing the virus when you noticed a rival team in the facilities looked like the perfect diversion tactic to get the hell out of there in the confusion. Well, turns out your opponents are just as tough as you, and a viral outbreak isn’t going to discourage them. And you didn’t consider that these scientific facilities always have some heroic technician or other pleb ready to risk their life to save the day. So now you have to activate the Decontamination Chambers for the system to let you out, and some of your men are infected with the virus you released. You still have to take control of the main Console before the job is done, in addition to keeping an eye on the lab’s HAZMAT Specialist to keep her from messing with your plan. And don’t forget about the hostiles lurking around…
This mission was not particularly hard, but your decisions took it all the way to Shitstorm Level. Now you’ll have to play it by ear if you want to find some sort of way out of this. Above all, stay frosty.

Dire Foes Mission Pack 7: Candy Cloud

Background

We all know that Infinity is a sci-fi and special operations wargame, but the Dire Foe Mission Packs provide a different game experience!

At the epicenter of every risky mission there is a civilian that kick-starts the confrontation of two irreconcilable enemies, intertwining both character's stories.

Do you want to know the main characters of the latest Dire Foes mission? Keep reading!

You will delve in a dangerous haze of intrigue at the hand of the tough Grunt "Rosie" Munroe (don't let her sweet name fool you or you'll pay), the merciless Nexus-7 Kerr-Nau (Does the Combined Army have a heart?) and Maya's sensadrama super star, Candy Double (the most daring investigator from your favorite channel).

Hope your life insurance payments are up to date!

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.

REF: 280025-0773


Susan Harlow, the coordinator at the NGO Freedom International, has become a real nuisance for the Druze Society’s operations in the refugee reception centers in the shrine-city of Vedi. In a situation like the one at hand, the options such an organization can consider are limited, and every last one of them points in the same direction: Susan Harlow must be taken off the board so the game may continue unimpeded.
The way forward was quite clear for Arslan, the security chief of the Druze Bayram Security. On the first occasion that the NGO coordinator spent a night at the Radha Reception Center, he and his men had to act. The plan would have three objectives: to capture her and get her out of the camp alive in order to interrogate her, to pick up the agent charged with her surveillance and monitoring, and to eliminate the StarCo security detail. Besides, who knows? Hopefully, Knauf would be part of the StarCo team, and Arslan would finally be able to settle an old score that same night.

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.

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.

Published March 20, 2020


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.
