Infinity - Ariadna
This Infinity Ariadna Dog-Warriors box set contains two (2) Ariadna Dog-Warriors and two (2) Dog Face miniatures. All miniatures are supplied unassembled and unpainted.
You can think of Dog-Warriors as the mongrel cross-breed of an Ariadnan savage (picture a Forty-Fiver or an Irmandinho), an Antipode and a TAG. The River Tribe raids were the first time Antipodes bit pregnant women without killing them. When those children were born, they turned out to be human-Antipode hybrids. It was later discovered that Antipodes carry something in their saliva, some kind of retrovirus that injects its DNA into the embryo’s cells to make it more like the attacker. It was called the ‘cuckoo virus’, and apparently it was brought about by natural selection as a way to spread the genetic payload of the stronger, more aggressive populations. When it infects a human embryo, it causes mutations, resulting in human-looking people, but bigger, hairier and with some Antipode features. And of course people would find a derisive name for them, in this case Dogfaces, which they have since reclaimed. Just make sure never to piss them off, because that’s what triggers their most bizarre and alien trait.
Ariadna is made up of the descendants of the first human colonizing ship that disappeared into a worm-hole and was given up for lost. Isolated on a remote and hostile planet, the Ariadnes – Cossacks, Americans, Scots and Frenchmen – have evolved into a hard and technologically less advanced race, which has just made contact with the Human Sphere and is trying to carve out a niche for itself without falling under the control of the other powers.
