Back from the Torny! Bagged Best Army :)


Sorry for the delay not posting this earlier I was waiting for the pics to come out...

Anyway had a great day in Leeds. The boards and terrain were amazing. I can safely say there wasn't one single board I would have wanted to avoid. The event was set up by the Northern Alliance (based in the UK, Leeds) but feel free to join the facebook group to talk about Infinity, even if your not based locally! Friendly bunch and a busy group!

Infinity Northern Alliance

Back to the torny, I bagged 3 wins and a loss, not bad for me. I should have worked harder to gain more objective points to place higher than mid table, but to be honest I had 3 really enjoyable games. The last game was against Morats, but I white washed them with my Anathematic and really the game didnt have any tense moments really. The other three games were great, PanO up first and I thought I was doing reasonable well until I got my core army flamed by an airdropper... just couldn't kill it with any ARO's. The next army i was against Combined and my Charontid hacker had a hacker stand off against an Anathematic. I was a touch lucky in that my Sapper knocked 2 wounds off him when he came out of camo... that probably won me my game to be honest. The third game was against Aleph and my Sapper was having another field day through a fire lane, he just couldn't miss! My Charontid hacker loving the -3 to claim objectives with the high WIP. My opponent had a ton of orders soaked up trying to claim the bloomin things!

Painting, I managed to bag best army! Really pleased and the prize were some sable Rosmery Co brushes and the ITS winners pack with sniper bounty hunter (just started painting her, will have her done next week!). I have to say, the guys made up a really cool party bag for everyone that included an awesome paint rack, cheers!

Anyway pics of the day. Guess who I am in the pics! (unless you know me, that would be pointless!)

My army...

This was a really spiffing Haq force... lovely blending (photo not quite showing it...)

Prize haul!

Some scenery highlights!

Guess me...

I'm on here as well somewhere..

A big thanks for the event guys! My good friend Chris Jarrett is setting up a torny at the end of January at our LGC Hulls Angels headed by our group Hulls Infinity... looking forward to that.

My future Infinity plans include... back to board building I have a FAT mat that should be arriving next week (used in this bat rep..) cant wait, going to build a 6x4 board to lay it on. Will give me the option to play 40k being 6x4 if that ever comes up again!

Also its Pan O next. I'm going to give this force my full painting attention, no rushing! hopefully will use that at Chris's torny end of Jan...

Again thank for looking - more updates soon!

FINISHED!!! Now I can have my life back....

Tournament Painting - Update 2! I'm getting tired now!


First up I apologise for the quality of photos I'm showing you.. Taken on my ipad in crappy light... I have been cramming my paint jobs in the last week... I haven't even got a pic of everything... Put it this way, I painted this weekend alone an Anathematics, Charontid, Skiavoros and an Anyat! I was up until 1am this morning finishing that... woke up this morning an remembered I choose blue for her hair colour!

The Torny is in Leeds on Saturday and has been set up by the Northern Alliance, based in Leeds (Leeds Battle Bunker). Nice group of lads should be a good day, I'll take plenty of pics. I'm looking forward to it, but I haven't tested my list. Its completely different to my Morats lists, which actually can only be a good thing! I can only do as bad... Alot of scope for improvement. Maybe I can squeak an army nomination, you never know!

I haven't completed the bases yet.. I'll do some more and better pics when that is done...

Noctifier and Spitfire... I went with the green blue as I thought it looked camo, but suited the Infinity style imo.. pretty pleased with this and all the Shasvastii I have done... I didn't love the models so much, but in the flesh they are really good. I think when you take a pic of some Infinity stuff you loose the fact its really teeny and small...

Anathematic (with this stuff its not as dark in the flesh... Ipad camera not picking up the detail...)

Skiavoros (blood and gore to be done after varnish, also I added more detail to the helmet)

Charontid (looks very dark in the mid area, but its actually red, his pose is casting a shadow my ipad cant deal with!!)

My Anyat (Miss blue hair!!)

Tonight will see me paint up the amazing Ko Dali model... tired, but am looking forward to this model, it looks ace

Back to it :(

I haven't pictured everything I have done... I reckon I'm going well though... 

Q Drone
Mid Tech
Seed soldier
Shrouded combi
Malgnos sniper
Ko Dali

2x Imetron

Even when done I have to base everything.... gah this is taking forever!!

Thanks for looking...

Tournament Painting - Update 1!


Well I had a slow start to my emergency painting sessions... The thing is I have started off with the background guys, the ones that are harder to motivate yourself to paint... so I was up until 12.30 last night finishing off Dr Worm and his servants, I'm pretty pleased with him actually... I think I'm going to shift to the Shasvastii tonight - break it up as it were. Then the back end of the week I can start doing the business end models! I actually like it when you have a bit of pressure on!! Bring it!

I have adopted the new scheme seen on this preview of the new Combined Army set... its very flipping cool esp with that Sith type guy at the front and the evil Tohaa Air drop guy. I also love those trooper model they are like small Anathematics!!

Actually looking at that i need to incorporate more red in my next models...

And I got the big guys glued...

Update again soon... Thanks for looking!

Sorry for the lack of Infinity pics or painted minis... but that is about to change! I have a tourny in Leeds (set up by the Northern Alliance) in TWO WEEKS.

I will aim to update everyday as motivation with newly painted stuff.

My List! (snivels...)

Q Drone
Mid Tech
Seed soldiers x2
Shrouded combi
Malgnos sniper
Ko Dali

Finger Disengaged!

Thanks for looking!!
