I had the X-Box 360 plugged in and actually played it last night. These days, it's usually something that I play (too rarely) vs friends and more often play along, with my kids. I was playing a very cool remake of a PC classic: X-Com Enemy Unknown. Is is a turn based, tactical skirmish game. With a strategy overlay between missions. It would make a cool wargame, in fact it was a wargame that reminded me of it and made me want to play again - more of that in a second. Firstly, I've kept up the painting!
I've got half the box done and will have 14 more painted up to to face Jason's Fantasy Nippon army on Sunday night. Should be awesome. Just have to stay focused.
power armoured Sci-Fi guys are on my LIST.
This game is very cool. It has Space Scotsmen.
Don't know about the last one. I think it is probably one of the gribblies you try to sniper shot at extreme range, from a jetpack vantage point, in X-Com. Otherwise it will just keep running towards you, and eat you.
I really like the Infinity figs but I think Andy has the right idea in terms of getting some models together to at least try out the rules. Some old Space Marine Scouts, Terminators, giant Evil Terminator, and plastic Catachans are all in the Simple Green, stripping, as I type this.Should be enough for two forces. But I promise to at least finish my pike block first!
