Scenery Redux - Barriers & Vehicles

Having been insanely busy recently I've not had much time for scenery or painting models - however the upcoming Autumn Challenge at the end of the month has prompted me to get some new scenery done!

Having received a big order from Antenociti recently, I started with the acrylic Police barriers.

2015 Infinity Winter Challenge - N3 Is Go!

The 2015 Winter Challenge - Welcome to N3 Third Edition!

The first UK Third Edition event! Following on from the Autumn Challenge 'preparation for N3' event we will get to play with all the new rules! This will be a fun weekend to introduce new and old players to the rules, with tutorials, a seminars and demo games on Saturday followed by a tournament day on Sunday.

This will be a day geared towards new players and people who want to learn more about the game and background. On top of the usual demo games, advice sessions and scenarios there will be a seminar on third edition.

Saturday Painting Competition

There will be a painting comepition for 1-3 models on a linked theme. Judging will be by a select panel. All decisions by the judging panel will be final.

 

Sunday - Tournament Day

N3 is go! This is currently planned as a 150pt doubles tournament but depending on numbers and when we get the ITS2015 missions it might be split into two seaparate tournaments for newer players and veterans.

2014 Infinity Autumn Challenge - Intro Weekender

The Autumn Challenge will be a 'preparation for N3 Third Edition' weekend with demo games, tutorials, fun scenarios and more on Saturday, followed by a doubles tournament on Sunday pairing newer players with more experienced players.

 

Saturday - Intro/Training

This will be a day geared towards new players and people who want to learn more about the game and background. Details are still to be confirmed but events will include intro games, tactics and list-building advice. There will also be plenty of tables and scenarios set up for open gaming.

All attendees on Saturday will get a goody bag.

 

Saturday Painting Competition

Class 1 - Single Figure. Any Infinity model that normally comes on a 25mm base. Also includes Sappers.

Class 2 - Large Figure. Any Infinity model that normally comes on a base larger than 25mm, for example Ajax, TAGs, Bikes, most Remotes.

Class 3 - Group. Between three and five Infinity models on a theme.

Models can only be entered into one class and must be painted by the entrant. Judging will be by a select panel. All decisions by the judging panel will be final.

 

Sunday - Tournament Day

This will be a '2.5 edition' doubles event with pairings decided on the day. This will not be an official Infinity Tournament System event.

The current plan is to use these rules from third edition:

  • Weapon Range Bands
  • Loss of Lieutenant makes everyone Irregular for a turn.
  • Using the Lieutenant's Order automatically reveals the Lieutenant.
  • Combat Camo is replaced by Surprise Shot.
  • Slhouettes for Line of Fire.

The overall winners will be decided by objective points from the games, but prizes will be awarded based on in-game achievments for silly kills etc.

 

MAS Alien Objective, Death Guard Status Sheet

I've not had much time for painting Epic models recently but thanks to a bout of insomnia managed to paint up one of Micro Art Studio's alien objectives (available online here, hint hint ;-) ).

Having previously noted it's scale-less nature I'd based it to match my Epic Death Guard force on a ply base with Vallejo Sandy Paste for texture.

To give very vibrant colours but plenty of depth in tone and variation of colour I started with a white undercoat over grey and worked down from the palest areas with multiple layers of washes, glazes and thinned paint. This let me add lots of different colours while working down into the shadows, making it a very satisfying model to work on. The pink areas then got a little bit of edge highlighting at the end. Overall I used something like twenty different paints/glazes/inks on this!

Here it is with a Nomad Moderator.

Cherry Trees, Planters & Pipes

In preparation for the local Legionary convention at the weekend I managed to get some scatter terrain done.

ITS 2014 Scenario Crib Sheets

ITS 2014: Cliff Notes Edition

The 2014 Infinity Tournament System season (try saying that quickly ten times) introduced some new missions and tweaked some of the missions from the previous season.

To focus players' minds at the Spring Challenge last month I did a set of summary slides which were shown before each round. I've now added ones for the missions we didn't play at the event.

Lifeblood was one of the new scenarios for the 2014 season. It has slightly stricter army list restrictions than the other missions as you not only need some Specialist troops but also troopers with specific ammo types to destroy the crate objectives after they've been searched.

2014 Infinity Summer Challenge - Campaign Weekend

This Challenge Series event is made up of two one-day tournaments.

There will be three games across Saturday and Saturday evening, allowing plenty of time for people to write new lists between each round as they gain XP to spend on army upgrades and Spec Ops.

Saturday missions:

  • Emergency Transmission
  • Antenna Field
  • Bacon Race

There will also be spare gaming tables set up on Saturday for free casual gaming, anyone welcome!

 

Sunday - 300pt 'Classic' Tournament

  • Quadrant Control
