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.
