Understanding O-12

Introduction to the Human Sphere’s Tactical Police Branch

The Human Sphere, can be a chaotic place. To maintain order and enforce justice across the stars, a powerful governing body was established: the O-12. Evolving from the familiar United Nations of Earth’s past, the O-12 holds far greater autonomy.

Acting as the arbiter, judge, and jury of interstellar disputes, the O-12 fulfills a critical role. It safeguards weaker nations from exploitation and prevents the strong from abusing their power. 

To uphold these principles, the O-12 is equipped with a dedicated tactical police branch – Bureau Aegis – a force known for its elite operatives and unwavering commitment to justice. Furthermore, the O-12 exerts control over all international systems deemed essential for the smooth operation of the Human Sphere. 

In essence, the O-12 stands as a beacon of stability amidst the interstellar squabbles, ensuring the Human Sphere can continue to thrive.

Sectorials of the Infinity O-12 faction

O-12 - Starmada

Starmada: This sectorial focuses on advanced technology and space operations. While further details are secret, it’s likely to feature units heavily reliant on starships, orbital drops, and cutting-edge weaponry.

O-12 - Torchlight Brigade

Torchlight Brigade: This well-established sectorial comprises elite veterans handpicked from across the O-12. They specialize in operating in remote locations, with Striders for recon, versatile Silverstar Rovers for diverse tasks, and Nimrod and Hellblazer operatives for focused firepower.

Building Your First Team

The Torchlight Brigade, a clandestine unit formed from O-12’s elite, stands ready to illuminate the darkest corners of the Human Sphere. These veterans, honed in Bureau Aegis and Bureau Noir, answer the call when new planets beckon or remote settlements cry out for justice.

This action pack delivers the core of your Torchlight Brigade army with 9 miniatures:

  • A pathfinder Strider infiltrates enemy lines.

  • A sharpshooting Nimrod takes down foes from afar.

  • Yellowjackets, Hellblazers (both SMG and Shotgun), and versatile Silverstar Rovers (HMG, MULTI Rifle, and Paramedic) provide a balanced force.

  • Leading the charge is the Silverstar Prime, a powerhouse wielding a devastating HMG.

Crafted from a mix of metal and high-quality plastic, this pack is the perfect springboard for your adventures with the Corvus Belli Infinity!

I aimed for a High (level 2). However metal miniatures require extra attention, so I pushed the quality level a bit higher. The color scheme is a more intense version of the box-art. The client wanted a vibrant look, so I really cranked up the contrast and used even bolder colors. To keep things interesting with large areas of one color, I used a variety of shades within that same hue.

Winning with O-12

Strategies for Victory

The O-12 are humanity’s elite enforcers, renowned for their exceptional training in Bureau Aegis and advanced equipment. This translates into a strategic approach that emphasizes control and tactical maneuvering.

Here’s how to leverage Infinity O-12’s strengths to dominate the battlefield:

Utilize High Control: O-12’s strength lies in their ability to manipulate the flow of the game. Focus on deploying units with Infiltration and Camouflage skills to gain early map presence and disrupt your opponent’s plans. This dominance in troop positioning allows you to dictate engagements and claim strategic objectives.

Leverage Advanced Deployment: With access to skills like Forward Deployment and Airborne Insertion, O-12 can strategically place key units behind enemy lines or in critical locations. Use this to your advantage to launch surprise attacks, secure vital objectives, or cut off enemy reinforcements.

Deny Your Opponent: Remember, tempo is key in Infinity. By controlling the battlefield through smart deployment, infiltration, and objective denial, you can severely limit your opponent’s options. Force them to react to your maneuvers, disrupting their strategy and ultimately leading to their downfall.

By mastering these core principles, you can transform your Infinity O-12 force into a well-oiled machine of law and order, ensuring victory across the battlefields of the Human Sphere.
