Summer has come and gone, we had the hay cut and we have a whole lot of goat filling our freezer.
Beth has engaged in her 'summer' wargaming projects. First she painted up some Gamesworkshop 'Age of Sigmar' dwarves to use as a 'squat' gang in our Necromunda games.
Her second plan for the summer was to build a robot army. Beth has accumulated a whole stack of Infinity remotes and a box of Warhammer40K Tau pathfinders to act as their operators.
All the remotes and Tau are assembled but the painting will have to wait until another time, Beth's back at work and already has one overseas trip to Japan under her belt.
All these Infinity remotes finally pushed me over the edge. Yes I'm a fan of Appleseed, Ghost In The Shell, etc and it's safe to say Infinity's aesthetic has been heavily influenced by anime and manga titles such as these. So now I've finally acquired some Infinity miniatures for myself. Actually I started by buying some of the scenery associated with Infinity and as you might guess it's a slippery slope. A couple of game mats and MDF terrain packs and it's "Hey why don't I get that starter set, and oh, those are nice rules books". Beth's happy because her 'squats' get to crawl all over the terrain once it's assembled.
I've started with the Operation: Red Veil pack, the card buildings are assembled and have already been put to use in games of Necromunda. The miniatures are assembled and undercoated and ready to paint. The local store is running a small tournament in March, so if I'm not busy ....... why not? I'm more than happy to provide a target for some young hyperactive youth.
