The Hungries: Gakis and Pretas box (OOP Apr2022)
Infinity - Combined Army
This Infinity Combined Army The Hungries Gakis and Pretas blister pack contains two (2) Combined Army The Hungries Gakis and two (2) Combined Army The Hungries Preta miniatures. All miniatures are supplied unassembled and unpainted.
The Hungries are combat light operatives that belong to a bastard race found by the EI on some forgotten planet. The difference between Gakis and Pretas is in the presence of the male, a symbiant parasite hosted at the base of the skull. This male-symbiant, in order to feed itself, disrupts the body biochemistry of the female-host - the Gaki - accelerating neuronal connections and giving her a greater intelligence. The resulting being is a Preta that, even though it will not be completely rational, will have an improved learning capacity and a greater ability to manipulate objects.
While Humanity devours itself a new threat, perhaps the most terrible of all, has managed to form a bridgehead in the heart of the Human Sphere. A Combined Army of alien races, united beneath the dominance of an Evolved Intelligence, an ancient but supreme artificial intellect with hegemonic aspirations with respect to any race that crosses its path. A small expeditionary force, equipped with technology superior to that possessed by humans, that has managed to withstand everything the Sphere has thrown against it, and appears to be awaiting reinforcements.
