I recently received my Customeeple camo silhouettes for both my Combined Army and Nomads. Infinity is a very visual game, with amazingly well sculpted models fighting over fantastic terrain. I feel that these Customeeple camo silhouettes further improve the already high visual look of the game and without costing a lot!

The camo silhouettes are less than a pound each (even cheaper if you buy the set of 5), so really affordable. The postage from Spain was also very reasonable. The silhouettes are high quality acrylics and perfectly match the troop outline that they are taken from. The colors are vibrant and as you can see in the image below really make your camo markers “pop” on the table.

I painted the bases of my silhouettes the same way as the army they represented. I used super glue to fix the silhouettes onto the bases. Be carful when you are doing this as the super glue could “mist” the silhouettes. I was very careful and so had no issues, but In hindsight I think PVA glue may have been safer and just as good. I also painted a number and type of camo (i.e. CH or TO) onto the base, although I have not had to refer to that during a game so may remove this.

Prior to this using  Customeeple camo silhouette, I had used camo tokens. Whilst these do a perfectly  fine job, they don’t capture the cinematic feel of a model using camouflage stalking it’s prey (I am think of Predator here!). They also do not capture the height of the marker, which is considered to be that of a standard line trooper.  Customeeple camo silhouettes solve both of these problems! Representing the height of the model in particular is really helpful as you avoid simple mistakes, like not putting the marker out of line of sight or into cover.

The makers are also a nice visual reference, rather than a numerical reference. For example I found it easy to remember that my Seed Solider silhouette concealed an Aswang, rather than write down and remember that camo marker 4 concealed an Aswang. Perhaps I am just a visual person but I found this a great aid to keeping track of what camo maker concealed which models, which can get confusing when you could have 10 running around! 

I would strongly recommend these camo silhouettes to any Infinity player. In particular  those that play Shasvastii or Ariadna, who often have a lot of camo, would really benefit from using these camo silhouettes. You will get to see something that represents your army on the table, rather than just camo marker “blips”.

If there is anything that I think could be improved on, it would be a clear distinction between normal (CH) and TO camo. Personally I have used the silhouettes that represent TO models as TO camo i.e. use the Notifier marker for a Malignos. As Customeeple do status markers that go beside bases, perhaps they could do a marker that states what type of camo the silhouette represents?

Overall the camo silhouettes are a great gaming aid, that I am extremely glad I brought!
