Battle Report: Infinity – Bakunin Nomads vs CA Morats (200 points)

Last month was crazy busy for me. Work, family, partying at weekends…you know usual stuff… and because of that, I had absolutely minimum time that to spend to give some love to the blog. Shame on me, I’m aware of that. …from now on – I say – enough! I have plenty of collected material to write, and I need to catch up with all this stuff. And it’s actually cool, because I really miss that:). Today I have for you tiny battle report from my Infinity game I played few weeks ago in Warsaw’s wargaming Gentlemen’s Club. It was my second game of Infinty- so it’s full of my simple rookie mistakes. And my opponent – Zippy Lapdos was unmerciful tutor, he ground me like a road roller. I don’t complain though. I was prepared for that – the idea was to be beaten, but learn the rules and tricks will help me in next games. So, big thanks to Zippy for patience while playing with me. I also would like to apologize for …

Infinity! Here I come! aka my first game

Finally! I made it! After all this years, I finished my Infinity Bakunin Nomads and I was ready and willing to play. But first things first, I needed a tutorial. The game I will got familiar with the game. Well, reading the rules, watching Youtube battle reports is not enough. Real life game was a necessity. Thanks to me, Corvus Belli, company behind Infinity, is organising so called ‘WarCors’ program. I tell you, this is awesome. WarCors are players who put extra effort to the hobby. They watch over their local community. They organize tournaments, other events, or… this is most interesting for me… make demonstration games. A year ago, when I had first look crush on Infinity, I was watching tutorial game between Pat, the local WarCor in Warsaw and my friend Jarek of Wargamer Hobby Store. And I thought, I might need the tutor like Pat to get more familiar with the game. In about two months or so. Pat, motivated with WarCor’s duty, was willing to help whenever I want to. Of …

The Eater of Sins.

Busy, but exciting month behind me. Few games, few miniatures done (just waiting to be photographed and presented here), and then I’ve realised that I still have one more (the very last) model, that I’ve painted in Thailand, back in early days of March 2016 (or even in February). I’m referring to Sin-Eater Observant for Nomads, Infinity, one of the last models I plan to paint to support my Nomads, Bakunin force. At least for some time. My other projects require my unwavering attention. (disclaimer: Infinity players do not read that!;). Blood Angles is number one priority right now. …but let’s stick to Sin-Eater Observant for now. Next week, I’ll finally get my first tutorial game of Infinity. Found the guy willing to spare few hours for me and teach the mechanics in actual gameplay. I was prepering myself for some time now. Reading rules and watching tutorials and battle reports, but there’s nothing like the living tutor to show you what Infinity is all about. So, next week, Wednesday or Thursday, I go to …

Reverend Custodier of Infinity

Settled for a while now. It’s been a month already since I got back from Asia and it’s starting to be some king of fading memory. It’s always like that – sitting in Poland, hidden in my room with the cup of tea in my hand. Watching the rain outside, and talking to myself: what the hell am I doing here? Cold, wet and grey. My everlasting Polish impression. I miss bright colours and sunny hot days. Remind me, why exactly I returned here? Oh, wait I remember – one of the main reasons I’m here again is that I’m miniatures freak. I can’t be apart from them for too long or I go crazy (friends and family are also here:). So, Poland again. …but I have few more stuff I painted in Thailand. Like this Reverend Custodier model for Nomads, Infinity. Painted her some time ago in my last days on Koh Chang, but so far I had no opportunity to shoot proper photos and write a few things about her. It’s my second …

Bakunin Sniper

Ok. Back to Infinity. Actually few weeks ago, when I was still in Thailand, I painted three Infinity Nomads miniatures. So, be aware this is no recent miniature. One of the three – it was this Moderator Multi Sniper. The Sniper of Nomads Jurisdictional Bakunin Force is kind of not usual model, when you think about usual Infinity sculpts. My first impression is always like – dynamic poses, sculpted fragile, with so many elements so difficult to pin, glue and assemble. And this guy? Crouched, hidden behind the cover. Easy to get it together, easy to paint and easy to transport (unlike many other miniatures from Corvus Belli!). I bet it looks cool  on the battlefield. Deploying this guy on the rooftop of the tallest building, watching for all area, controlling every enemy move. Very cinematic. The only problem is that he’s nothing like this Hollywood sniper bad-asses with crazy awesome shooting skills. He’s just simple mediocre Moderator. He will not take total control over entire battlefield. Too bad. About painting job. I went to …

Reverend Moira aka what is wrong with Infinity models?

Another Infinity models is ready. This time – rather controversial miniature. Reverend Moira. Corvus Belli miniatures are kept in certain aesthetics. Some people like to see them as opposition or alternative to Games Workshop models. Well, in many ways I agree with that opinion – Infinity with all graphical concept refer to good old and very popular manga style. When you visit Corvus Belli web page or take a look inside any of books – you’ll get the idea. The future offered in Infinity is somewhat different than dark grim 41st Millennium of Warhammer. Infinity’s is rather plastic and clean. Full of  pretty girls and handsome boys. It looks little bit like pop video – where everything is so clean and shiny. Even war on distant planets;). Please, don’t get me wrong – I love Infinity miniatures. For me they are the best for making break from any of GW models. Infinity are different, but great to paint. Demanding, but rewarding. My Nomads Bakunin faction is slowly growing – many minis left to paint, and …

Infinity: More Moderators.

Another batch of miniatures ready. Recently I’ve adjusted the way how I paint them. So far I have been painting one model at the time, but recently I’ve decided to change the tactics. I paint at least three models simultaneously. This is efficient way of painting, but I need to be settled down for at lest few days. Setting up my painting station and juggling between minis for one day…hmmm…no can do…too lazy for that:). …but when I was staying on Panglao Island, I have been able to set up my workplace for a little bit longer (10 days near to lovely Alona Beach – charming place!) and I could work on three minis at the same time without the hassle. Advantages. First of all I do not get bored so easily. Diversity is the key. If I fell like painting faces, I paint face, but in actual moment I want to paint the base or, let’s say, pants, I do so. I can jump from one model to another, whenever I want to. The …
