Event Report: Tabletop Nation Campaign Paradiso (part 2)

Continuing on from part one...

 

Mission Three - Central Seizure

 

Overview - divided forces are approaching a ruined alien spacecraft from different directions. The table was divided into quarters, with the winner of the initiative roll-off having his two forces deploy in random quarters. The other player then took the other two quarters. Each player's forces had to be split into two Combat Groups, each with at least 140 points in it.

The objectives were to get into the spaceship, shut down a security system that did nasty things to people inside the ship, put down beacons in the ship, stabilise some systems inside the ship and check out some consoles outside the ship. All of these required either Hackers or Engineers (but could be done remotely) except placing the beacons which could be done by any 'Specialist'. For what counts as a Specialist see the Prisoner 09 mission or the New Rules PDF for more details, but the Forward Observer models listed below count for this.

Event Report: Tabletop Nation Campaign Paradiso (part 1)

So, this weekend a bunch of us from the Exeter and Reading areas headed over to Hockley on the far side of London for an event put on by Corvus Belli and Tabletop Nation. This was the UK introductory event for the new Campaign: Paradiso missions and campaign book for Infinity.

All we really knew in advance is that we would be playing the first 'chapter' of missions from the book and that they would have very different requirements from previous Infinity games we'd played and that Baggage Remotes would be really important. In preparation I loaded up as many of my painted Nomads as possible and (shock! horror!) got a few new ones assembled and base coloured including an ALEPH Probot for baggage as I haven't yet got the Nomad Salyuts.

Anyway, on with some photos!

Autumn Challenge Campaign Weekend Results

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

AT-AT Monorail Part 2, OceanBlue Apartments, Dalek Deconstruction

Some more progress on the AT-AT Monorail project.

The next step after getting the basic structure done was to add some detailing. This was going to take the form of an access ladder made by gluing strips of plasticard but instead I decided to go in the other direction and make them less accessible and went with a barbed wire anti-climbing defence. Plus the top part of the knee joint where the brass tubes are attached was closed off with some plasticard.

A full weekend of campaign/team gaming based on the new Campaign: Paradiso book.


AT-AT Monorail WIP

If you're a certain age, you'll have fond (or possibly envious) memories of the Seventies and Eighties Kenner Star Wars toys. I know I was envious of a friend who had the monstrously-large AT-AT. Fast-forward a few decades and AT-ATs and parts of AT-ATs come up pretty regularly on eBay - and every so often seeing some interesting bits for a good price coincides with having some hobby cash...

So back in April I spotted a set of four AT-AT legs going for the princely sum of 99p plus £4.49 postage and put in a bid on the off-chance, thinking that they'd make great support columns for some kind of raised railway. Enter the AT-AT Monorail!

First off, in 28mm scale, these things are HUGE. OK, the Nomad Moderator (minus her arms) is skinny, but she's dwarfed. On the right you can see the original concept, have the lower leg upright with the thigh at an angle and add some kind of strut (in red) that the rail could be supported by and have the train (in green) hanging off that. What would form the rail itself I had no idea.
