Fledgling Infinity PanO Army Taking Shape

My Infinity PanOceania is growing. The Cutter was part of my master airbrushing class at Adepticon that we were allowed to walk away with. It’s so huge compared to the normal infantry and a ton of points. Of course, I have no idea how actually good it is in the game. We’ll find out. I also built Gaurda de Assalto blister pack. All I have left for PanO now to put together is one box of Auxilia. Not sure what to add to my list next. If you guys out there have some ideas, I would love to hear about it. So far, here’s what I have models for:

  • Father Knight from Operation Icestorm
  • Fusilier – Combi Rifle
  • Fusilier – Combi Rifle
  • Fusilier – Combi Rifle
  • Akalis – Combi Rifle, E/Mitter
  • Nisse – Multi Sniper Rifle
  • Orc Trooper – Multi Rifle
  • Guarda de Assalto – Spitfire
    • Auxbot – Light Shotgun/Zero-V Smoke Grenade Launcher
  • 2 Auxilia – Combi Rifle (Not Pictured, still building)
    • Auxbot – Heavy Flamethrower (Not Pictured, still building)
  • Cutter – Multi HMG

So, it’s growing

This episode is more then just Adepticon, but it’s a big topic! Conesy retells the sites he saw and events he participated in at this years Adepticon. There’s a lot of Warlord’s Games Bolt Action coverage in this episode as this is what the hosts have been playing a lot of lately, including a couple of tournaments with some interesting results. The hosts also do a gaming spotlight on the X-Wing tactical miniatures game by Fantasy Flight as well. It’s been a while, so just go listen!

Infinity PanOceania

So back at Gen Con I picked up Operation Icestorm, which is a two player starter for the game Infinity which is made by Corvus Belli. At Adepticon I was able to get a basic demo, basically playing out the first scenario in that starter and I have to say I really like the game and can see why so many Warhammer players have jumped to it. In this post I am going to show you a little bit of what I have been working on with the models and I am going to let you know what my top 3 things where that I really liked about the game. Expect this series of blog posts continue as I try out the game more and learn more about the game and what makes this game both fun and still complex for the veteran players.

So I started by painting up the new Infinity PanOceania models, which are all metal. They are a little fiddly I think to put together. They are not heroic scale, but a true 28mm scale which makes some of the joints really small. Coupled with filing mold lines is a bit of a pain too. I do really like painting metal models and I feel like paint always goes on metal models better which is a plus in my book. So far, I have 2 of the fusilier models painted up and close to having my third. It’s a small model count game, so it’s really nice to be able to take my time on each figure, work on the detail and highlighting, and feel like I have a really good accomplishment done when each model is completed.

How To: Repair Broken Rifle Barrels in Bolt Action

BrokenBroken rifle barrels seem to be a very common thing in Bolt Action.  I contemplated a few ways of repair but here is how I did it.  It is a pretty simple idea especially for anyone with modeling experience.  Maybe that’s why there didn’t seem to be anything out there for a tutorial or how to.  For anyone wondering though; here is a proven and relatively simple method.

Bolt Action Battle Report: US Army vs US Paras

Turn 2

I’m on winter break from school and now that the holidays are done I was able to stir up some Bolt Action back at Misty this past Thursday.  I had a 1000 point game with my US Army against Justin playing his US Paratrooper force in Maximum Attrition. (more…)


Episode 66: Merry AoS

Episode 65

The long break is over. Sorry folks about that. Between Brian’s classes and Conesy’s personal issues, we just haven’t been able to put our best foot forward this fall. I know you are all ramped up to hear more about Warhammer: Age of Sigmar.

In this episode, Brian and the Conesy cover Merry Mayhem 2015 which was a Warhammer: Age of Sigmar event. They then go over their thoughts now that Age of Sigmar has been out for about half a year as to what they thing works and makes it enjoyable and what doesn’t work so well for them.

With that, let’s roll those dice! Wisco’s for the win!!!!

Gaming Spotlight: Dungeon Lords

dungeonLordsI had an opportunity to play one of the greatest board games I get to play last night, Dungeon Lords. In the game you play the evil (or not so) Dungeon Lord to try to build your dungeon. You add tunnels, rooms, recruit monsters and set traps to try to score the most points and thwart those pesky heroes. The game is tough and to the not initiated, it can be a real struggle. Last night was my best play of the game yet, and I still ended up losing by 2 points!
