Knight Of Santiago WIP Shot

So Ive been painting for a few knights now the new infinity figures - I had a disaster with the 1st figure when I accidentally sprayed white primer instead of Flat Matt sealer.

Infinity Review (sort of)

So Saturday I got the chance to play 2 games of infinity with my new PanOceania Military Orders Sectorial.

My first game was against Noakes and his Yu Ying - this was an intro game so he went lightly on me.  He had also given me feedback on the list I had built so we played open lists.

The game ended in me winning but i think by luck more than anything - what i did take from it was really how elegant the game system is.   In principle at all times both players are actively involved in the game- unlike 40k where there are periods where you will sit and watch you opponent just move models and roll dice.

Comon Forgeworld Really?

So today I got my Tartaros Pattern Terminator armor and Asteron Moloc models- to be honest I was excited, looking forward to the models and the conversions i have planned, but that will have to wait.

Musing on Infinity

Well the last few days Ive been reading up and talking to people about the game Infinity- even going so far as buy some models and I'm contemplating playing a game this Saturday.

It's not that 40k is no longer grabbing me, I love the game and love playing my grey knights and space wolves. Its more the grind of finding players who dont complain about the power level of grey knights - the seeming lack of tournaments right and well Ive finished in principle painting my Grey Knight army so I'm looking for a new painting and gaming  challenge.

Grey Knights, Infinity and Hampton Games Club

So its been a while again,

Trying to be consistent and posting allot when your back to doing this on your own can be a little hard with a heap of commitments.

If you under a rock you would not be aware but Realm of Legends closed down- which was a huge shock. Totally unexpected and in allot of ways hurt my regular gaming a little.

The loss of a supplier of all those extra 3rd party parts hurts but I'm sure one the online retailers will pick up the slack.

That forced me to start to look for other places to play and in the end I found Hampton Games club.

A great bunch of people with a really great set up, reminds of of WSWA from a few years back and the great bonus only about 15 min away from me.  So Ive been down two weeks now and I'm starting to get into Infinity-  seen it played a few times, really like the sculpts so I'm going to go out tomorrow and pick up a starter pack.

So.... about all those posts I promised !

So earlier this year I started with full of promise to post on a regular basis, then stuff happened....... namely work,  or the more precisely work screwing me over, thankfully most of that is now passed, one hopes that it all settled down down and I can get back to working on this blog a little more consistently.

That aside I have been working on the upgrade to the grey knights as well continuing to play the buggers and practice with them.
