"Game Over, Man!" Part II

 All done but the varnish.....

So, part of me is a little scared that these new models will be "game over" for me. I haven't actually had the pleasure of facing D-Man's Morat army yet. I'm a little scared I'm contributing to my own demise by painting these figures up for him.

But hey, at least I won't be killed by a mass of unpainted primer.  Read on for more pics and my paint list...

"Game Over, Man!"

I've been watching a lot of Kris Belleau's tutorials both on his on YouTube channel and on the MiniWargaming site. Because he ofter uses Warhammer 40K models to show the various techniques, I got wondering if there was much difference between those models and what I'd been painting. When I mentioned maybe painting some Tyranids for someone locally, my former partner-in-pod casting, D-Man, handed me his newest Combined Army models and suggested color schemes.

Here's a teaser of what I did with them and a hint regarding the title of this post:

Crushing Defeat part II

So, if you haven't read part I of my crushing defeat at the hands of the Heroes' Beacon regulars, you might want to jump over here first.

I thought I'd start out by sharing the army list I used for my first two games. It's a decent JSA team, but there are some definite holes that could be filled.

Quick Update - July 15th, 2014

A combination of power outages at home and craziness at work due to the aftermath of Hurricane Arthur has put me a little behind schedule. I do have some updates nearly ready to post, though, so you should see a little more progress on a hobby project or two by the end of the week.

Also, the official Infinity forums have announced that they will be closing, and in October everything will be lost. I'll be migrating some of my threads there over to Data Sphere, who are partnering with Corbus Belli to pick up where they are leaving off. That will take a little time, of course. In the process you may find some of those older subjects find their way here as well.

 Either way, you'll hear from me soon.....

Crushing Defeat

So, D-Man (of Definitive Geek) and I travelled about an hour and a half to a neighbouring city not too long ago. We were thrilled that Heroe’s Beacon was hosting an Infinity event.

I’ll be honest… while I really enjoy playing with my local group of friends, this was the first time I’d gotten the chance to be a part of a scheduled event with an organizer and judge, prizes, etc., etc. In summary, I had a blast, but I also learned a lot.

An Ongoing Project

So next I’ll show off an army that has been literally years in the making.
