A big part of trying to get into Infinity for me is picking out what faction I want to choose. There are a few which appeal to me, but deciding is tough, since I have decided I am really only going to do one faction for this game. This will help me avoid the 'universe burnout' that has plagued me so much in my 40k projects.
The pictures above are Miyamoto Musashi, a recreated historical figure who is now a rogue reality show contestant, and Yuan Yuan Mercenaries, your basic scum-and-villainy types who engage in plunder, slavery, and space piracy. The concept of a dishonored Sword Saint down on his luck and falling in with some grubby space pirates is just too good in my opinion.
