Started my Borderlands inspired board!

Hi

I finally started to build up my Borderlands themed board! I didn't think it was going to be quite as time consuming as it has been so far. This is the progress so far....

The materials:


Building the first structure, i want sniper positions, but so they are limited to certain lanes of fire:


So far: (the corrugated card is xmas stuff that was on offer... everything will be painted!!)



Unfortunately I had to put it on the back burner as I need to get cracking with the paints as my first ITS tourny is coming up in September and Im really struggling with Morats so I need to paint loads of stuff while I test lists out and hopefully find a winningish formula. I know when the new rules come out in a few months my guys will be getting some good boosts so im not going to whinge (to much) for now. Kind of lost the confidence in the game its now reflecting in my tactics where im hiding stuff to much and not setting of enough automatic reactions... but I love the minis and the setting, and the game! - its just grating on me a bit at the mo...

BUT, more fun wise Im making a senario! A borderlands campaign pack. I will be basing missions from the game, but making it fit with Infinity fluff etc... Its going to be fun looking for models to represent the wildlife and characters... referred to as civvies in this system... see i think these will make great Bullymogs...!



Oh here are some pics of me playing badly!!





Thanks for looking guys!!

I made myself an Infinity backlog!

Hi

This isn't supposed to happen in a skirmish game, but a combination of Corvus Belli releasing awesome models and the Morats lacking a few tricks in 2nd ed I have bought a lot of models. I want these clear for my long over due infinity board, and the release of Icestorm where i will be making a Pan Oceania force. I have have seem some of the updates in 3rd and they look great, but i will wait until The Beasts of War release a full 3rd es bat rep on Friday before I make comment. I think this edition is going to tidy up a lot of things and (fingers crossed) make Close Combat more viable! My Morats strengths would be blown wide open if that were the case!

This is my shame for all to see!



With a few more to add! :( Damn Corvus Belli and the HMG Suryat model - to cool not to get!!!
This is defo the last purchase for Combined Army!


I will certainly be adding some painted updates soon!!

Thanks for looking!!

I'M SO EXCITED, AND I JUST CAN HIDE IT!!!!! - Infinity the Game!

Hi

I really don't know where to start with this post! So much is happening in the world of Infinity at the moment... in fact please play this while reading this post...





Before I start on the good stuff, I have managed to get these Morat Vanguard painted up! I have stripped my original three from the starter so I can get them to match (I painted them not know where the scheme was going!!). Pretty pleased overall, I love these models, the colours are working and I'm getting through my backlog... well kind of, I'll come back to that!!



I'm currently working on these guys, should be done by the weekend.. stripped with Fairy Power spray!


Now the good stuff.. You may or may not have heard, but Corvus Belli are bringing out a brand spanking new starter set with freaking awesome metal minis (The current metals being brought out are miles better than resin, so nice to paint and handle). The factions are Nomad and PanO, two of the best looking armies that both fit in a Manga/video game aesthetic. I'm halving the box with my good friend Chris who is taking the Nomads and I the PanO. Looking forward to seeing the models and the gaming mat mainly. Just cant wait!! 
Plus its going to be the new 3rd ed rules, which again I cant wait for.. the rule set is currently in a revised state from the original brought out in 2006. You can tell in some areas the game needs some polish and this should do that!


That is not all, we are pre-ordering and getting the spec ed minis!!!



The Pan0 one is of Tabitha Lyons who will be cosplaying at Gen Con dressed up as the Neoterra Bolt! Awesome...

This is the costume underway...


And if all this wasn't enough, we just got some new previews!!! Get ready for some Nerdgasms!
The new Morat Vulkan Shotgun Raktorak


More Eye candy... New Antipods... human half breeds.... yeah... awesome...


Oh yeah, and if that's not enough... I'm off to my first Infinity tourny in September... Its the Northern Alliance and they are holding a one day event in Leeds... Canneee wait! 

My only issue is I'm still struggling with my Morats... I have some new tricks ups my sleeve, but i might try and switch to a Vanilla list and include this fella... which I do currently own!



Plus I'm hoping to start on my Borderlands gaming board soon as well!!


Oh and I got out on my bike!

This is to much...

Until next time... Thanks for looking!!

Im painting like I have never painted before!

Hi

Its true I'm properly knocking stuff out at the moment. Taking the odd shortcut, but am overall pleased with the end result that (imo) gives a good gaming standard that I'm pleased to look at, but also happy to use in a game without pooing my pants every time I have to manoeuvre the models! I need to start blogging in the odd bat rep as well because I am actively gaming at the moment!

The Northern Infinity Alliance are holding a tourney in Leeds in September. I am going to be attending that and am really looking forward to it! Cant wait to dip my toe in the tourney scene again. My leg is starting to feel better also, so I'm going to get back on my bike and train so I can ride with my biking club as well, so things are starting to look up in that department!!

My Hungries... (these are very cheap fast moving models, that frankly, are one of my favourite units to use in game. They can do so much!!)



Next up are the Daturazi, these are super aggressive models that when in a link team move up the board under the cover of smoke grenades... I love them as much as the Hungries...!



I have some Morat Vanguard to paint up, along with two Raznat air drop guys. Then its onto the TAGs and Remotes... After that I have a Shivastii starter set. When that is complete I'm going to build a board... yup, gonna build terrain! My fave part of the hobby!

Thanks for looking!
