@Willen, it'sactually  something I picked up on the Infinity forums. They make nice cover as well as occasionally blocking line of sight to prone figures (which can be a good tactical move at times/)

 

@A Dent, As long as you have some mates with a bit of patience, it'll be fun once you get the hang of it. We went through a bit of a trial and error process, because of the notion of reacting to a model's ORDER as opposed to reacting to its ACTION. (The headaches that argument brought... it was almost what you expect from 40k.)

"You call that 'painted?'"   "Way to roll a one, loser!"   "What's the matter, baby stuck in rough terrain?"   "The player isn't your real dad."

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.

keep your eyes pealed for the the CAV kickstarter this summer!  

Except one thing... it's not Igo-Ugo, or anything like that. It's bassically always yyour turn, even when it's not.

 

Let's say I'm playing Dave. On Dave's turn, he can spend orders to have his models do stuff. Even though it's NOT my turn, my models still get to act, although in a limited capacity. Say Dave wants to shoot my Domaru. Good call on his part; that thing gets anywhere near his models, they're getting sliced, diced, and jullienned.  He sends guy A to shoot my Domaru. Now my options are basically to try and shoot back- not a Domaru's strength- or Dodge. So I dodge and win the contested roll. This allows me to move 2". So guy A tries it again, and Domy dodges again, successfully, and moves another 2". Dave decides that guy A is a schmuck, so he does a combined order with guys B and C. Domy decides to Dodge against both their shots and wins, allowing him to move another 2". So my Domaru ha moved 6" across the board- on my opponent's turn. At this point, all Dave can do is send his hacker out to try and hack the Domaru's armor, 'cause the Domaru will soon be in cover, and be able to cut down an alleyway and come around the flank where he can inflict maximum carnage with very good odds.So he moves hs hacker up and tries to hack, at which point all I can do is have the Domaru declare a shot if the hacker is within LoS and hope it's in range. 

 

It's a slightly different game from 40k or WMH. A bit like Warlord in the sense that you get to shoot or melee people who are shooting or meleeing you, but far more fluid and dynamic. Someone moves into LoS, you get to react, even if they were simply planning to sneeze in a better spot. (I'm getting goofy there, but you get the idea.) And sometimes, you don't even need LoS, you just need to be within 8" of them (hacking... argh!)

 

It's complicated, but it opens up so many strategic opportunities within every order, active or reactive, that it makes the game truly shine.

      Story
      After the estate of one Fomo Barrowblight (who many moons ago, and with heavily laden bags, had said he was just off for a morning walk, never to return) was sold at auction, there came to light a strange scroll that appeared to be a map of the final resting place of a lost tribe of halflings.  These cousins lived down in the scorching Southlands, amidst endless dunes that had buried whole cities and civilisations.
      The newly elected (and so still very enthusiastic) Halfling Town Council had organised an expedition to make contact with their fellow halflings, with the aim of swapping some stories and recipes, and who knows, perhaps even coming back with some interesting new cakes.
      And, after many great perils and travails, the expedition found itself in a mysterious location known as 'The Valley of the Things'.  Here, recipes in strange hieroglyphs were marked on tomb walls,  guarded jealously by High Priests and long mummified pastry chefs.  
      The expedition takes time to assuage the fears of the High Priests that they are here to steal the sacred recipes and make formal diplomatic relations.  But Fomo Barrowblight and another mysterious figure seem intent on stealing the recipe to the sacred pie and have already gleaned some of the ingredients...
      To the Mummy's Tomb!
      Introducing a series of  Eight Fantasy Miniatures in 28mm scale from a halfling expedition to the burial grounds of their cousins, in the desert southlands. 
        Halfling Town Council Five
      The latest elected Halfling Town Council, has been responsible for launching the expedition to the distant Southlands, as always, it is made up of eight different townsfolk from all walks of life.
       
       
       
      I've already pledged for the whole set, why haven't you?

      A huge 2 for 1 KS!  
      (You get BOTH Humans and Halflings in one project! )
      Bloody Peasants! by Midlam Miniatures — Kickstarter
       
      Story
      "Oh no!  It's an armed agrarian uprising!"
      Toiling in the fields for their feudal overlords, the peasants are equally quick to turn their tools to defending their lands from monstrous invaders or, when pressed to the limit, revolting and overturning cruel and greedy landowners.
      Bloody Peasants!
      A selection of human and halfling farmers in 28mm scale miniatures for all of your fantasy games.
      You can choose from humans, halflings or both!
      The Humans
      A familiar sight in the villages surrounding Midlam.
      The Halflings
      A smaller folk, doing the same jobs as the longshanks.
       
       
       
      It's a Midlam project, so you know what that means;
      Maybe a stretch goal, very possibly an early fulfillment, and absolutely no nonsense.

      Finished a couple more gang members for Warlord Games Judge Dredd game.  Painted with reaper and Vallejo.  In theory they'll get used for demos so I didn't want to burn a lot f time on the bases.  These were some of their first figures in their new resin.  It's kind of like Bones I as far as material goes.  Also think they some of their early  ones in 3d modelling as the "engraving" is almost too light.  makes it hard to pick out details and you've got to be careful not to apply too heavy a coat or you'll fill in lines pretty easily.
