Learning From Your Mistakes, Epic Edition

So, last night I played a game of Epic Armageddon, and lost 2-0.

This was partly down to a bit of rules confusion and some bad dice, but mostly down to bad tactical decisions...



This was a 2k game between my EpicUK Death Guard (the brand new update with Rhinos!) against Ronan's (new club member) EpicUK Ulthwe Eldar.

Epic Death Guard - Objectives & Nurglings

Following on from yesterday's blog post, I've been basing up a proxied 'Plague Zombie Infestation' and working on some objective markers.

The models for the zombies infestation are a mix of Space Marine-era Nurgling piles, some early Eighties Citadel C29 Creepy Crawlies range scorpions and some leech/centipede models from an unknown manufacturer - picked up at a games convention at some point. After trying out how they would look on 20mm ply discs I decided to go for 25mm discs instead as it would make the lips of the built-in bases easier to hide.


Epic Death Guard - Contagion Engine Conversions

It's been a while since I played Epic regularly but Epic Armageddon is seeing a bit of a revival at the club, so I've dug out the remnants of my semi-painted Nurgle forces.

To go with the painted Death Guard stands so first new addition will be a formation of Contagion Engines for some long-range firepower. Inspired by mageboltrat's excellent Bombard conversions that appear in the Epic UK army list PDF I decided to do my own conversions rather than tracking down some of the old metal catapult models.

Salute 2013 Photo-Blog

So this weekend involved the annual trek to London for Salute on Saturday, the biggest dedicated wargaming show in the UK, and possibly Europe.

Rather than shoving all the images into one post, this year I've set up a bunch of sub-galleries and will include only the picks here.


Antenociti's Workshop

Jed from AW is working on a new table suitable for Infinity, with a strong jungle/woodland theme. He says it's about 60% done so I'm curious about how it's going to look when it's done!

2013 Spring Challenge Results

The results for the 2013 Spring Challenge. The total number of tournament points from each round was the main criteria with victory points as the tie-breaker. We also kept track of crits suffered by each player.


Having recently been inspired by this thread on the Datasphere forums, I went trawling eBay for cheap model trees and ended up ordering £20 of stuff from the Far East.

First up are the cherry trees in blossom. Technically they're a bit small for 28mm scenery but clumped together in some planters they should look fine and add some much needed colour to my urban layouts. Note that everything's still a bit compressed from being posted...


Stocking Infinity - Part 2

As of this weekend we now have the whole line of Infinity blisters and box sets up on the web store, although we're already out of stock of about twenty items again...

If you're looking for something specific then http://store.wargamingtrader.com/infinity/search is your best starting point, as you can search by combinations of faction, unit type and Sectorial.

Stocking Infinity! (Updated 1st March)

Big news - we've stocked a very small part of the Infinity range for some time now but we're now going to be continuously stocking the entire range of Infinity blisters and boxes alongside our existing Micro Art Studio stock and of course our large range of secondhand GW items.

Yesterday we received a massive box of shiny goodies from the distributor which takes us up to around 95% coverage as there two dozen items out of stock. Which gives you some idea of the size of the range! Stocking all 400 items has been quite an investment for us and you can be sure I'll be pushing the stock as much as possible...

Paradiso 203: Anatomy of a Pounding

Last night I got curbstomped in an Infinity game. This isn't a particularly common occurance for me so some post-game analysis was required...

This wasn't part of our club's Paradiso campaign as the next round of campaign matches are next week.
