  1. Man, thanks for all that work!
  2. I was reading through some of these Burning Light scenarios yesterday and I was struck by how “bare” most of the skirmish areas are. I’m going to put in some more terrain elements, but kudos to you for running it straight-up. With you having played though the initial scenarios I would like your thoughts on the matter. Seems to me to be a shoot & sprint fest. How’s the feedback from the kiddos?
  3. Nice write up! Looking forward to seeing your darkroot!
  4. Watched the GMG vid last night, very pumped. Looking forward to destroying my kids lol!!!!
  5. The translation issues are a big driver to revise the Infinity core book. About 80 to 90 percent of the FAQ on the Wiki is from the core. As far as the models go there is a very liberal proxie policy for models that have not been manufactured, even in official tournament play. The models I really wanted I've just converted. Hey Hymn, if you want to come by and get in a demo we play about once a month over in Plano. :D
  6. Have you looked at Infinity by Corvus Belli? It's my fave! Right now I'm fighting off Matic's Deadzone impules, I really like the Reb faction.
  7. No problem, it can be the defacto Infinity thread There is already one, it just hasn't seen any action in a while lol! http://www.reapermini.com/forum/index.php?/topic/17351-infinity-sci-fu-manga-game/
  8. I don't take a TAG until 250 points just because you need other quality troops to share the load if said TAG gets smoked. If you need to you can proxy, most people are fine with that if you're just starting out.
  9. If I'm demoing that's fine. Usually during games or events going over the point levels is not tolerated. It's a rarity to hit the max, I'm usually lacking anywhere from 8 to 3 points, depends if the army has acess to warband troops or not. If you've already read through the rules and you feel like you got the gist, go ahead and make a 200 point list as well. I've found that after people have gotten their feet wet they are ready to go up to the next level, so play a starter @ 150 but have a contingency to play your next one at 200. :D
  10. I try to get there around 11, and I'll be there till 5-ish. There are people that will stay later too. Painted, unpainted, it's all good! Make a 150 point list and you'll be good to go.
  11. Sorry Lars! Yeah, we're playing at Madness in Plano. We're getting together on the 9th of March. I'm going to be the designated demo guy and we already have 2 to 3 new guys coming. I'll supply the minis (Yu Jing) if you want to give it a go! We just had a tourney and we had 13 people show! Heady days man!
  12. Do you live in DFW? There is a bunch of us playing in Plano if you want to come see!
  13. Hey Stubbdog, thank you sooooooo much for taking time out and talking about your great table!!!!
  14. @ the Sonic Table Carhop - Hey Mike, there was a guy just here wanting to buy a hamburger. Sonic Mike - Oh yeah? What did he look like? Carhop - He was a big guy, with a beard, wearing a black shirt.
  15. For any of the DFW locals that would like to check out how the game plays there is a group playing Mondays at Area 51 in Grapevine from about 7-ish to 11-ish.
  16. If you really want critical, then I don't like the blue eyebrows, darker would probably look better. The fantasy style base is working against the sci-fi theme too. Otherwise, looks nice. Really like the gems and the purple/turquoise combo. Don't give up on gaming, Infinity is a blast.
  17. Although some (not all) are scantily clad, I would suggest Infinity minis.
  18. Zig Memory System glue, you can find it in the scrapbook section at Hobby Lobby. I use it for all my World Works builds, great stuff. Works like super glue for paper.
  19. Pretty much what everybody has said except I add carrots & celery too along with the onion, you pretty much make your own vegetable stock as it cooks. I also like to take a jalapeno, cut it in half and deseed it. Adds a nice flavor without being too hot so the kids will still eat them. Years ago I was watching Martha Stewart with the wife (yeah, I know right) and she suggested to add the salt last because it causes the beans to get hard/rubbery. We’ve done it that way ever since, seems to be solid advice.
  20. Thanks for the feedback! I wish I could have gotten a Khan, it’s one of my faves (I was one of those weirdo BT Locust lovers.) Same with the regular infantry, especially some motor teams, I figured they would be good deployed out of the apcs. I guess with the whole redux on CAV that explains why they had nada up at the Asylum when I went up there about a month ago. That’s a big reason why I was throwing all the stuff together that I’ve had languishing on the pile, I figured that it might be one of the last times I would be able to get a game in, so good news all around. I wonder if they might do some of the open market stuff (ie vehicles & infantry) in unpainted plastic? A nerd can dream can’t he!? If it doesn’t rain everybody is getting a blast of Afrika Mustard tonight! Desert theme baby! Edit: Look! It didn't rain!!!! I should be able to knock out the Cavs & the vehicles (hopefully) this weekend. Thanks for lookin'!
  21. Progress!!!!! Everything is based and primed! No painting on Mother's day and the wind has been blowing incessantly for the past few days, but I ran out today and put down some prime. Hopefully tomorrow will yield fruit with the base color spray. Stampy-stamp-stamp! Look! Lots-o-grunts! To be continued...
  22. I’m getting ready for Reaper Con and so I figured I would do a little wip log! I would also like to ask for a little advice. This is everything I have cobbled together, but I do have 6 more stands of grenadiers left to assemble. Group shot 5 Cavs 2 “junk yard dogs” I picked up on the cheap, any use-as advice would be greatly appreciated. Grunts & Hedgehogs Let’s say it together now… Badger, badger, badger, badger… I’m a total noob at Cav and I was unable to find the Cav starter, so I don’t have the full rules yet. Is this a viable force? How many points are in a “typical” game? I’d hate to paint everything only to be able to play with half! Any comments and advice would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!
  23. Yeah, One Monk ftw! If you dig around in the forum he has tons of resources and advice too.
  24. I'm going to be there on Saturday, so if you don't mind playing, teaching, and/or mopping the floor with a complete noob I'm game! I'll bring terrain too!
  25. Yeah, I agree, Simple Green does seem to weaken super glue, especially with long soak times (around a week.)
