Anyone try this yet? Based off the skirmishers game setting.

I've always liked the Infinity figs, but I look to cross-use figs in many games whenever possible, and at the cost they charge 32mm is just too big for universal use in 28mm games. I love the various MDF and acrylic-accented terrain I've found online geared towards Infinity.

We played out first game of Starfinder, and though its OK, that group does not play but once a month or so if that. So I am looking to maybe branch into Infinity RPG & mini game to get double-use of the figures and terrain potential.

As far as I know, this has been at R&D over the last two years. Possibly there is a beta or electronic download.

Drive Thru RPG has free quickstart download, I just wanted to know if anyone else has played and what their thoughts are.

I have the free beta but haven't tried it yet, but the place to ask is over on the infinity forum where there are already a couple of threads about the game in progress.

The Infinity figures work fine with 28mm figs. I use them alongside Copplestone, GW, Pulp Figures and Reaper among others without notice.

I use the infinity figures with GW stuff too. No problems.

The price isn't bad, especially considering the quality of the miniatures you are getting.

I haven't tried the RPG and probably won't. I don't really have a group to game with at present but might have one soon. I doubt we would play that though as I'm not super excited about the Infinity fluff.

They started shipping the physicals to the KS backers a few weeks back.

The miniatures game began as a home-brewed rpg by the guys at CB. Several of the named characters in the miniatures game were player characters of those same CB people.

I've not played it, but the mechanics didn't grab me from what I've seen of them – and Eclipse Phase provided the same crunch in an easier to find package (that wasn't KS).

It should be noted that the rpg is a licence by Modiphius, and the original miniatures game it is based on is Corvus Belli.
