Infinity is an awesome game. I love how dynamic it is and the minis are brilliant. I hate how overwhelming it is for new players, which stems from:Having many, many, special rules and equipment choices despite the elegance of the core rules.There are no bad unit choices, so it's hard to narrow things down.Starter boxes contain a good mix of units but these are not necessarily beginner friendly - Haqq box I am looking at you!When I started I bought as much Haqq as I could, mainly through bulk sales on FaceBook, and a few new pieces that I wanted because they were cool or because people on the internet recommended them. Looking at my 7-800 points of unpainted Haqq and still having things I want, I can't help thinking that - especially as a casual player - I should have taken a different approach...Coming to Infinity - as any faction - I would recommend prioritising a usable and easy-to-learn 150pt force for playing Recon or Recon+ games. Recon is a great format requiring minimal startup investment,
Jay from Lords of War is back with his Aleph Sectorial the OS.SSS to take on the Tartary Army Korps in Frostbyte! Snowpants have been forgotten and the heaters need to be activated for the forces to survive.
Yesterday I took my two eldest to Ambush which is run annually by my FLGS at our local showground. I wasn't sure what to expect, and how long they'd want to stay...After a look round the stalls we enjoyed an introductory game of Blood Bowl run by the local gaming club Wolds Wargamers. Both of them had so much fun they wanted to buy a copy straight away! It was a close and very swingy game, ending in victory for my daughter from the jaws of defeat.Both wanted to have a go at painting so we grabbed a free mini each and spent an hour or so in the painting area while the painting competition was being judged. Suffice to say we didn't produce anything that could compete!We all got talking about all sorts of games - we didn't even get to play any of the boardgames which I thought they would make a beeline for - and my son even wanted to have a quick game of Infinity when we got home, so all in all a positive experience.Is this a shameless plug? Maybe … but it was a great event, all very friendly,
This is the second blog post devoted to the Infinity! Quite recently I had the pleasure of painting Yu Jing Sectorial Starter Pack. These are six beautifully sculpted models enriched with Micro Art Studio resin bases. It took me quite a long time to paint, mainly because of the amount of small details that need attention. Additionally, I experimented a bit with the gold color, using different metallic paints from Green Stuff World. If I had a bit more time and local community, I would have started playing this game myself Commission painting services – firstname.lastname@example.org OR message on Facebook

I'm painting up some Infinity minis so my FLGS can run demo games. I'm even making resources too, because I love this game so darn much. It's a hard slog, so I'm posting progress here to try and motivate myself as I'm a super slow painter.I've got 12 minis to do as I'm doing 2 Demo Packs to get 6 minis a side and writing up some basic rules - wish me luck!
