Every Little War Review Part 2: Yu Jing Holo Echoes

Hello Everyone!

This is part 2 of my Review of the new Silhouettes from Every Little War ( https://everylittlewar.com/ )., and I am taking a look at the Yu Jing Holo Echoes that where sent to me!

Since my last Review they have put up their Silhouettes on their Website as well, so for everyone interested you can take a look at them right here:


The package I got didn’t include Father Sforza since he’s actually a mercenary, but after checking on their website I have seen that they now have added him to the Set as well, so if you should order the complete set, you should have him included as well. Sadly though this means that I can’t show you any personal Images of him here, since I don’t have him.

Once again let it be mentioned that Every Little War produces in and ships from America, and that all Silhouettes mentioned in my Review where created by Osman Naskali.

As you can see on their website they now also offer Silhouettes for several other factions like for example PanO, Combined Army or Aleph.

Anyways, on to the Review!

The Holo Echoes come in sets of 3 Holo Echoes per Figure, which allows you to filter out the psychological factor of “I’m sure he’s going to be the real model, because it’s just so damn beautiful”…which can be both an advantage and a disadvantages, depending on whether you do that or not ;-P


Each Silhouette can come with it’s own base, and in the case of the Holo Echoes I actually recommend using them, as they come with nice Hex Counters on the base that allow you to always know who the real one is, and who isn’t….which can be very important in tournaments and more hard fought battles.


My Kanren Bases actually came with Numbers instead of Hex Counters, but after taking a look at their website it seems they have changed that now to streamline it a bit more, and I have to say, I prefer the Hex Counters over the numbers.


In my test package one of the Silhouettes always was mirrored, looking into the opposite direction, and frankly I found that a bit odd since it actually wasn’t possible to make the model look that way, since the weapons are on fixed positions and the mirroring swapped those., but once again Every Little War has already noticed that, and I was assured by the guys that in the finished product all Holo Echoes will look in the same direction to avoid this problem.


The size of the Holo Echoes fits the original models very well, and I think they actually look great together, although I think the outlines on Sforza and the Lu Duan turned out a bit better than the Kanren…

Because the Kanren’s chest seems a bit too empty for my taste, especially since the Kanren has this nice flap over shirt on which I am sure could have looked interesting as an outline.





All in all I will say that I like the Holo Echoes a lot, and I think they are a bit more playable than the normal Camo/TO Camo Silhouettes in the Set, as you don’t have to worry about giving away the model when using Holo Echoes…unless you go for that turn 1 Holoemitter 1&2 Trickery ;-P

I think they could have improved the Kanren a bit more, and I am missing the stretched out hand pose I have seen on other Holo Echoes and the model itself (from an angle it just doesn’t look as cool, although I can see why they did it..), but they did an awesome job on the Lu Duan and Father Sforza for sure!

Since I gave the other Holo Echoes a quite high rating, and these Holo Echoes are actually even better than them, I shall give them a 9.5/10. A little bit of extra work could go into the outlines of the Silhouettes, but other than that they give you everything you could ever want from a Holo Echo Marker, and then some more (like a boatload of colours to choose from, and very flexible bundles!)

I recommend them full heartedly to every Yu Jing player that wants some nice Holo Echoes for their evil trickster units!


Every Little War Review Part 1: Introduction & Ninja Silhouettes

Hello Everyone,

Recently after posting some of my previous Reviews,  the Guys from “Every Little War”  ( https://everylittlewar.com/ ), contacted me and asked if I was interested in reviewing some of their upcomming products as well,  as they apparently liked the style of my other Reviews.

Since they agreed to my condition that I could rate the Stuff however I liked/disliked it, and I am always up for getting more potentially awesome stuff, I ended up agreeing!


They wouldn’t tell me what I was about to get exactly, so I waited patiently like a little child around christmas (so with no patience at all, and a lot of “Do you think it will be here today?” to my wife…)  for whatever was going to come my way, and after a while I finally came back from work to find this lovely box on my table: (Miniature not included, only added for scale)


After making sure that my son was fully distracted and wouldn’t come around to plunder my booty, I opened it up and found the following inside:


Which upon further inspection turned out to be:


A full Set of Yu Jing Camo/Holo Markers! (at least to my knowledge, since I don’t play Vanilla Yu Jing yet I might have missed one there?)

At the time I am writing this the Set is not available yet, but I talked to the Guys and they assured me that it will be available very soon, and that they also will have many other Silhouettes from other factions and in different colours, with the goal obviously being to have them all available in the near future.

Every Little War is a company that produces and sells their products from America, and these particular Silhouettes have been created by Osman Naskali, and you will be able to order them from this link once they are available:

So without further ado…I present to you Part 1 of my Review, all the Ninja Silhouettes that Every Little War will soon have available.



Obviously there are no Ninjas in the Yu Jing State Empire, so this whole Blog Entry is just make believe and folklore….but just in case you are interested in such archaic stories anyways, here are some closeups of said “Ninjas”…

(Please excuse some of my bad paintjobs on the older ninjas, they where one of the first Infinity Miniatures I painted ;-P)

Ninja with Tactical Bow:


(Sorry I forgot to take a white background picture of this one before I added it to the base, I got too excited!!)

Shinobu Kitsune:







Ninja Sniper:


Ninja Hacker:





Ninja: (Don’t have the Model)



Saito Togane: (Damn, no white background picture either, damn sneaky Ninjas!!)



Raiden: (Wait, what? That’s not even a ninja is it? Oh screw it…with a name like that it’s alright I guess…and no white background again! Sneaky gits!)


Apparently that Raiden also brought some friends, some of which don’t even have models yet if I am not mistaken!




So, as you can see the silhouettes come with their own bases (which actually look quite stylish I must say!) and the have the outlines of the actual figures on them, which is something that I actually thought was missing in my Review of other Silhouettes before.

After seeing these Silhouettes I think I was right in assuming that outlines like that would make the Silhouettes look even more awesome, or what do you think?

The Silhouettes themselves come very clean with a protective layer on the backside, and are easy to put together, even on scenic bases as you can see in the pictures.

Some of the outlines turned out a bit better than others (the normal Ninja one looks a bit clunky, but so does the whole model i think, while the Bow Ninja just looks stunning!)

I also found two small things that I found a bit odd, one being the Ninja Sniper, who’s Silhouette seems to be quite a bit bigger than the actual model.


The other one being that the Saito Togane Silhouette at first appeared to not have the Katana arm…IMG_20160928_184944.jpg

but that  turned out to be because of the perspective in which the Silhouette was made, and if you look very closely you can actually see the Katana and the arm.


Overall I would give these Silhouettes a 9.5/10. They could have been a 10, but the difference in outline “quality” (even though that’s very subjective), size on the Ninja Sniper and the fact that while I was writing this review I actually came up with a way to improve them even further, mean it ended up as a 9.5

Those are definitely the best Silhouettes I have seen out there so far, and I recommend them to everyone that thinks about getting Silhouettes for their Camo Units!

The only way I could see them improved, would be to change the Bases that these come with, into bases that actually show the “TO Camo” “Camo” Symbol on the base! (or something along those lines if they are not allowed to use the official symbols) That way people could instantly see the different types of Camo as well as the lovely silhouette…..but again, that’s just my personal opinion, though if anyone wants to steal my idea, feel free to do so ;-P


Customeeple Review Part 6: Yu Jing Holoechoes

Hello Everyone,

As the currently last part of my Customeeple Review I’ll be taking a short look at the Yu Jing Holoechoes I ordered for the current Models I have.

Sforza Holoechoes

Yaoxie Lu Duan Holoechoes

Kanren Holoechoes

The Holoechoes come in small plastic zip bags with a little description paper (which shows you the ocntent of the package), 2 Holoechoes and 2 fitting bases for the Echoes. (In case of the Lu Duan Echoes I got to choose which size of Bases I wanted to have)


Assembly is obviously easy, as it just consists of glueing the Echoes on the base, but since I used Resin Bases fitting to my other ISS Models for some of them, I can say that they work with most of them as well.

The size of the Holo Echoes fits the model perfectly, the only slight exception being the Lu Duan where the silhuette seems to have been taken from a slight angle, which makes it look a bit odd when standing next to each other, but is no problem in the game.

(Miniatures and Resin Bases not included and only added for scale and cool looks)

Assembled Sforza Holoechoes:


Assembled Lu Duan Holoechoes:


Assembled Kanren Holoechoes:


All together:


The Echoes are very playable and look quite good. I am a bit scared of the Sforza Echoes loosing their stretched out finger, but it definitely needed to be there otherwise they’d only look half as cool ;-P

I’ll give these sets a 9/10, I think they do what they where supposed to do almost perfectly, and I think the only way to improve them a little would be by adding a slight outline of the figure on the Echo itself, but that’s just my personal preference.

Micro Art Studio Urban Bases

Since I decided to paint my ISS Figures for Infinity on a better level than I used to paint my JSA miniatures, and having some minor success in doing so (at least I think so)…I quickly realized that standard gras or rock bases just wouldn’t cut it, and also wouldn’t fit into the fluff I currently have in mind and the game table I am currently creating.

So I went and bought some Micro Art Studio Urban Bases from my local game store (which luckily had a nice assortment of Micro Art Bases hidden in the back of the store).


I have to say I am quite impressed by the bases, and the details on them clearly show that Micro Art Studios is an official Infinity Partner, the Ariadna HMG will fit perfectly for my battles against my wifes Caledonian army, and other details like a PanO Helmet or Aleph sword give the bases a nice little touch as well.

Sadly I must say that the diversity of the bases wasn’t that great, maybe I was just extremely unlucky, but two of the 4 boxes I bought contained the exact same bases, which is a shame really, but I am sure with a slightly different painting sceme and different models on them it won’t be that much of a problem.



When it comes to painting the bases I was quite pleased as well, for the most part the paint stuck to the bases nicely and the details look great once painted, but I wished I had given the Resin bases a little scrubbing at the beginning, because once my fingers were dirty with paint (I am quite the messy painter I guess) some of the paint on the edges started to stick to my fingers and come off, forcing me to repaint a part every here and there.





All in all I would say that Micro Art Studios aren’t exactly cheap for the amount you get (mine cost 4,40 Euro per pack of 5) but they look awesome and really improve the look of your models a lot, at least I think they did so for me.

I plan on eventually basing all of my ISS Models on bases like that, and maybe later on even rebase my JSA Models to fit the theme as well.
