Infinity O-12 High Commissioner

Posted on August 26th, 2014 under , . Posted by

One cool thing that Corvus Belli have been doing lately is adding non-combatant miniatures to their Infinity range and also providing scenarios and missions to use them in, such as those found in the Dire Foes boxed sets and also Campaign Paradiso. I like my games to be narrative and objective-based so the idea of […]

Infinity Haqqislam Odalisque

Posted on August 25th, 2014 under , , . Posted by

If there’s one thing Infinity gives you it’s tongue-twisters like that in the blog title! So, next up in my brief return to Haqqislam is the one miniature I used unpainted in my recent game with James: the Odalisque with Spitfire. In game she was unusually ineffective as she got pinned down behind an ODD-screened […]

Infinity Open Weekend, 27/28 September

Posted on August 18th, 2014 under , , . Posted by

Just thought I’d spread the word for an Infinity Open Weekend event that’s happening at the end of September here in the UK. It’s a two day event happening at the Tabletop Nation venue just north of London and features the folks from Corvus Belli showcasing Operation Icestorm, running seminars, demo/participation games, a painting competition, […]

Infinity August Previews – Aleph and Haqq

Posted on August 8th, 2014 under , , , . Posted by

Something a little different today as I’m going to be taking a quick look at a couple of preview images coming out of Corvus Belli for Infinity factions I play. First up, we have the Ghulam Infantry specialist box set, for Haqqislam: Ghulam are the bog standard cheerleader troop choice for Haqqislam and now we’ve […]

Panzer IV for Bolt Action

Posted on August 6th, 2014 under , , . Posted by

Although I’m very much into Infinity at the moment, I’ve also been getting a lot of enjoyment out of playing Bolt Action, by Warlord Games. It’s a fairly simple 28mm WW2 ruleset but we’ve found it to be a lot of fun to play – pitching my German Heer against Tom’s US Airborne, or (other) […]

Back to Haqq

Posted on August 5th, 2014 under , , , . Posted by

I had a game of Infinity at the weekend with my old friend James. It was James who actually introduced me to the game way back in the early days of the game as he had been looking to scratch a sci-fi miniatures game itch – settling on this new game (I guess this was […]

The Infinity Icestorm Approaches

Posted on July 30th, 2014 under , , , , . Posted by

The latest hoo-hah on the Infinity circuit concerns the impending release of the Infinity starter set – Operation Icestorm – and the simultaneous introduction of the 3rd edition ruleset. I’m pretty excited by the Icestorm set and have been suitably wowed by the box contents. Enough so that I’m publicly admitting failure in my 2014 […]

Infinity Batrep – Paradiso Mission 201

Posted on July 29th, 2014 under , , . Posted by

Oops. I just realised I had not posted the battle report from my last Infinity Campaign Paradiso mission, despite writing it some weeks ago, and I’ve got the next game booked in this week. So without further ado I present my summary of Campaign Paradiso mission 201. This mission followed on from 103 and had […]

More Terragnosis Sniper WIP

Posted on July 29th, 2014 under , , . Posted by

Quick little update to show some more progress on the sniper miniature, from Terragnosis. I didn’t quite get as much done on her as I wanted to over the weekend, but I’m pleased with how she’s coming along. As you can see, I’ve got a load of the basing done and I think it looks […]

Smell the Sulphur

Posted on July 22nd, 2014 under , , . Posted by

I’ve not really been painting much lately, possibly due to the London heat (it gets particularly stuffy in our flat). That said, I did get the brushes out this weekend to get some enjoyable painting time on a post apocalyptic sniper badass lady from Terragnosis. I really am a sucker for the post apocalyptic genre […]

Diomedes in Nine Pieces

Posted on June 9th, 2014 under , , , . Posted by

As I mentioned in my previous post, I consider Infinity to be something of a flawed masterpiece of a tabletop skirmish game. The rules are over-complicated and full of ambiguity and special cases, with more being added with every expansion. Yet the game, if you’ve got the right opponent and you’re both prepared to come […]

Paradiso Missions 101-103

Posted on June 4th, 2014 under , , , , . Posted by

Can’t believe we’re almost half-way through 2014 and I’ve barely played any tabletop games at all. However, I have been slowly working my way through the Infinity Paradiso Campaign with regular opponent JPS – pitching my vanilla Aleph against his Panoceanian Knightly Orders. John and I seem to have the same outlook when it comes […]

Seiji Bushido Commission

Posted on June 2nd, 2014 under , , , , . Posted by

Gone quiet again on the blog, really must rectify that. Anyway, in the meantime, here’s a little commission piece I did for GCT Studios: Seiji, a Temple of Ro-Kan warrior monk chap. I’ve been really enjoying doing the little flowers on the bases for these Bushido minis. Basically it involves laying down some static grass […]

First Place Sci-Fi Unit at Salute 2014

Posted on April 13th, 2014 under , , , , . Posted by

Well I’m ecstatically happy to report that my Infinity Aleph squad took first place in the Salute painting competition sci-fi unit category! Here you can see them on the base plinth I constructed out of plasticard to help tie them all together. I thought it would just be a bit more interesting than having them […]
