Infinity - PanOcean Military Order - Knights of the Round meets the A-Team

     PanOceania has the future Catholic church as one of it's sectorial (theme) groups. I wanted to build a list that had as many different knights as possible. This is like a holy version of the A-Team.

     In a Military Orders list, you can select one group of knights that you can field multiples of and then 2 Confere (non-selected) single knights. You can also work in Magister Knights, but that gets crazy points wise. You can also pick special characters like Joan of Arc or Gabrielle de Fersen to fit in more flavor.

Here is my current 250 list

Army Infinity v.3.0. -

     I haven't played the army yet (I am rocking a strict, paint before play clause, now), but it is fluffed to be a Order of Mercy group that goes behind enemy lines to save civilians or prisoners. I want to use Fusiliers over the Military Order grunts because I view Fusiliers as more expendable. This group is set out to attack aganist my buddy's, JMock, Combined Army. Fusiliers also let me switch between Vanilla PanOceania and Military Orders more easily.

Infinity plays from 150 to 300 points. I would suggest demoing it with 3 line troops (Fusiliers) and 1 heavy infantry unit (Any knight).

Knight Hospitaller (My favorite)

Knight of Santiago

Teutonic Knight

CrocMan (can't be used in a Military Order sectorial) is an awesome Maori doing a Haka. He also rocks TO camo, which is why I painted his lower half Predator-esque.

Fusiliers are chumps, but I have a weakness for berets. I wanted to have red ones, too, like the UNIT operatives in Dr. Who.

The bases are MicroArt Studios - Ruined Factory. I feared that they may add too much height, but my guys are still not as tall as JMock's Combined Army!
