Terrain Quick Reference Cards for Infinity

Posted on September 20th, 2016 under , , , , . Posted by

Infinity has really interesting terrain rules, but they’re an added layer of complexity over an already complex game so they often get ignored. The “default” terrain for Infinity is urban, generally, and doesn’t use any of the terrain rules. That’s a pity, because skills like Multiterrain and other movement skills only earn their keep and … Continue reading Terrain Quick Reference Cards for Infinity

The Workbench This Weekend, 18 Sept 2016

Posted on September 18th, 2016 under , , , , . Posted by

I’ve been back to painting Infinity figures recently, after being distracted by some scenery for a bit. Over on the Official Infinity Forums there’s been a Painting Pledge/Support Group thread every month for a while now. I tend to be a bit of a scattershot distracted painter, so pledging a few figures to get properly … Continue reading The Workbench This Weekend, 18 Sept 2016

I’ve been spending some more time on YouTube recently, rummaging around the wargaming-related channels. I don’t have the time or the patience for the long rambling unedited vlog-format stuff, but there’s some good, properly edited, to-the-point stuff out there. Two channels I particularly like are Kujo Painting, who did the great “How To Paint Tartan” … Continue reading Links of Interest, 15 September 2016

Late Summer Painting

Posted on September 12th, 2016 under , , , . Posted by

Spent the weekend off on what might be our last camping trip of the season and I’ve been busy doing lots of other non-wargaming things, as one tends to when the weather is good, but I’m still getting some painting done. I’ve just finished a couple of figures for my Haqqislam forces for Infinity, but … Continue reading Late Summer Painting

Crashed Shuttle, Part One

Posted on August 28th, 2016 under , , , , , , . Posted by

Doing a bit of cleaning up in my boxes of wargaming supplies I rediscovered a shuttle I built at least ten years ago. It was nominally for 15mm science fiction gaming, but was built without visible windows or any other really obvious scale indicators, and it’s big enough to look like a small craft in … Continue reading Crashed Shuttle, Part One

Yet Another Hill

Posted on August 25th, 2016 under , , , , , . Posted by

I mentioned in the last post that I’ve been working on a third large hill, with a roughly 12″x15″ footprint, that being the maximum interior size of a banker’s box. This one is a more complex outline than the previous two and was a fair bit more work to assemble, as I wound up using … Continue reading Yet Another Hill

A Pair of Hills, Part Two

Posted on August 23rd, 2016 under , , , . Posted by

I’ve finished the first two hills I started a while back, and built a third large hill to finish up the set for now. After the first coat of glue/sand/paint “goop” dried I added a second layer to a few areas of both hills, just to smooth out a few seams and such. I mentioned … Continue reading A Pair of Hills, Part Two

A Pair of Hills

Posted on August 1st, 2016 under , , , , , . Posted by

Still quiet around here this summer, but wargaming has been taking place, as has figure painting, and finally, just for a change, a bit of scenery building! I broke out my stockpile of half-inch insulation board last week and spent and couple of hours with a razor knife, hot glue gun, and the styrofoam. I … Continue reading A Pair of Hills
