All out of the blue, a guy popped up on the local wargaming forum and asked if there were Infinity about. Coincidentally, just the week before, Ben had prodded me to not forget we also play Infinity. After all, we've been hitting the Armada pretty solidly recently. One thing led to another and there is now a Chch Infinity Facebook group. To join, I had to register for Facebook. What with having 140+ Goblins to wade through for the 10 year old, I thought I'd never get round to painting some models to join the fun. Then the pro-painter decided to do the horrible Mantic Goblins for me and so I got to paint cool Corvus Belli Infinity models instead. I've decided to do my guys up as PanOceania Military orders. Yes space Knights. I was initially attracted to Infinity just as a source of power-armoured sci-fi models. I gave 'Vanilla' a go but they are a tool box list. A toolbox of fantastic specialised hi-tec tools. My level of gaming understanding is to just line up the T-34s/Roman Legionaries and Attack! So I've decided to go one of the specialised sub-armies. Who knows why there are Catholic Knights in the future. Lets just roll with it, paint them red like Soviets/Legionaries, and have some fun.
As an aside, if you are in Christchurch, or sometimes come here, or another SI centre we could conceivably go to for an event, go to the above Facebook link. We'd love to hear from you. This really is a great game and has a lot more depth than a lot of what I am otherwise playing. A lot more depth, as in I am going to need this slow-grow format too, just to ease myself back into the different rules. If you haven't had a look at the game but like Sci-Fi and skirmish.... the rules are completely free here. Fair warning, though, its not an expensive game to get into but I can't seem to stop buying more and more boxsets of 2-4 models. So, you know: "the first hit is free."
Thanks for reading.
