On an Express Elevator to Hell!!

Thanks a lot for the comments guys! Actually hk1x1, just painting up some civilian workers now with little Wayland Yutani logos on their uniforms

Just going to advertise this here!



Hey guys!

Just to announce an event that myself and a friend are running at the Total Wargamer store, near Evesham (UK) on Saturday 18th May.

Some details about the event:


Infinity Event - The Moebius Incident.
A Campaign event with chilling narrative, come play on specially constructed Cityscape and Mercenary Outpost boards. Beginner or veteran, all welcome!

Force Size: Both 150pt and 300pt lists if possible, or just 150pts. Forces also provided and available for use on the day if necessary.

The Games: A series of narrative games with a competitive edge, based on missions specially adapted for this event.
The event starts at 12pm, with games lasting approximately 1 hour - 80 minutes.
Starting times are around 12pm for game 1, and 2pm for game 2 (with the possibility of a 3rd depending on demand!)

Exciting missions to play with a chilling (really!) narrative running through the event; come and find out what the Moebius Incident is, and if you can survive it!

Terrain includes a specially constructed cityscape made especially for Infinity, and a mercenary base with games played across both boards.


The Place
Total Wargamer, near Evesham: http://www.totalwargamer.co.uk/blog/?page_id=111
As I've said before, this place is a real little Aladdin's Cave, with a wide selection of miniature games - well worth the trip to see regardless of anything else!

The Games
Check out the bottom of this post on the Infinity forums for pictures of our previous event - and the terrain collection has grown somewhat since then!

And and all welcome at this event and any questions please add a post below, or send me a PM!

Cheers man, think Infinity offers so many opportunities for creative modelling and building - there are just so many kits available right now that are suitable, but the whole universe is still open-ended enough that you can still use your own imagination with stuff!

OK guys a massive update! Sadly the event I was advertising above was cancelled due to ill health (hopefully to be re-scheduled soon), but that has given me a chance to get some stuff finished off and also photos of everything! So, without further ado..

With regards to rules, all of the following use the 'Civilian' special rules from the Human Sphere rulebook, with special rules as noted

Civilians of Acontencimento (a snapshot of the various denizens of Nueva Catalunya)

Office Workers


Waiting for the bus, on the way to an important meeting, these guys are so busy they probably wouldn't notice a Morat TAG if it walked past them!

Miniatures: 'Office Workers' from Antenociti's Workshop, vending machines by Ainsty Castings.
Weapons: Clip-board
Special Rules: none

Walter 4-series Service Dwoid


"Would sir like help with that bag? Or would sir like diwections? Yes, of course this wobot can dwokk off, if that is what sir wishes.. "

Miniature: Walter the wobot (2000AD range), Mongoose Publishing
Weapons: Electric Pulse
Special Rules: CH: Mimetism

Group W Security


Minimum wage, long day ahead of them, lots of coffee to drink.. no task is too easy for the Group-W Security Services (2 for 1 offer, limited time only - W-Group cannot be held responsible for any security failures or damage caused by W-Group employees).

Miniature: Security Guards, from Heresy Miniatures
Weapons: Pistol, cup of joe
Special Rules: None

Not an Alien Life Form


An AI-enabled children's toy? A gene-spliced house servant? Even an alien visiting town to go shopping? Who knows, but one thing for sure is that this guy knows he is cool, and is walking the walk through down-town

Miniature: 'Alf', by Four A miniatures
Weapons: Stogie
Special Rules: CH: Mimetism

Ulala, special reporter for Channel 5


Even the Morats can't help themselves! Everyone dances along to Ulala's mobile disco!

Miniature: Special edition 'reporter', by Corvus Belli
Weapons: Pink hair
Special Rules: None

News Reporters


Real news reporters! Want to get the latest scoop on the streets of the city, whatever that might be..

Miniature: (I have no idea! Bought these from a convention, please let me know if you can identify these models!)
Weapons: None
Special Rules: Must stay within 6" of each other.


And finally a group shot (hopefully some more miniatures on the way!)


I'm currently writing some special rules to have these guys walking the city board during games - picture something like Grand Theft Auto, where these guys are just going about their daily lives (until a thermo-optic camoflauged ninja appears next to them!)

The rules will include
- rules for the reactions of the civilians when confronted with an action (ARO) - do they run away? jump on the ground? Stand there staring, or in rare instances even attack the soldiers?!
- a GTA style 'star' system. These guys see the fight taking place, and might well phone the police! This can escalate from a police patrol car (which will almost certainly end up as flaming wreckage), to an armoured SWAT-team equivalent and even air support (with the Infinity equivalent of a police chopper!) Suddenly the mission for both teams becomes a great deal harder, so perhaps it will be better to hide from the civilians, or even kill them silently?

Anyway will post the rules in the Infinity section of the board when done, in the meantime C&C on the above is very welcome!

They are Copplestone. Mark Copplestone has done at least three iterations of these models from his Grenadier days (CC are the current generations of them).
He also worked for GW in the 80s and was responsible for the original look of the Commissar models.

I'm OVER 50 (and so far over everyone's BS, too).

ALF needs special rules for any chance encounters with cat-girls.

I wonder how the WGF zombie survivor kits would come together as near-future civilians?

Haha!

OK, after far too long finally got some more photos to post. These were mega-speed painted, trying to get everything finished the night before an Infinity event I was helping to run (hence the complete lack of detail on the bases)

Granny, miniature from Hasslefree miniatures. In a 'zombie apocalypse' game we played, we placed this miniature in the park area of the city, next to a bench. Neither zombie or human player noticed her which was pretty funny, the GM had agreed a 1-1 move if she did have to run for it



Fat man with belly-wheel. Miniature is from Mongoose (fans of Judge Dredd will be instantly familiar with the concept of a belly-wheel). In the game we used him as a civilian with 'no wound incapacitation'. Amazingly he staved off many zombies and escaped to the evacuation vehicle. The mini actually came packaged with two right arms, which was a bit of a pain, but an Imperial Guard Cadian plastic arm and some green-stuff later and hopefully it's not too noticeable!



'Boy in goat suit' officially, think it's meant to be 'Goat Boy' of Bill Hicks fame. Obviously the sculptor from Hasslefree is a fan!

Excellent additions. I think Granny could be a really good character to base games around. Make up some cool rules and scenarios for her and get stuck in.

Cheers mate, yes took some photos during a battle report recently (with Qapu Khalqi mercs extracting civilians during a nano-strain outbreak), and Granny and others feature. Will make sure I post a full report at some point!

Latest update, sorry it has been a while!

This Onobiwan belongs to a mate who had expressed a desire to paint it himself; however, he left the miniature in my house and is half way around the world now,so, his own fault


A photo of my Qapu Khalqi mercenary faction, 'the Black Cats'. I really will try and get some better photos!


Got the final photos of the QK on their way, along with little bit of fan faction and a battle report. Any C&C welcome!

Thanks mate! I did try and write 'The sun' on it, but my talent wouldn't allow

Am really hoping Antenociti will release their drop-ships soon, so these mercs can have a transport like the one from the movie Elysium..

Arise, thread! Arise!!!

Far too long since I posted anything in here, but I've finally got round to taking pics of my Qapu Khalqi force. I'll be posting pics over the next couple of weeks of the members that make up the force, as well as some background on them. This will also culminate in a special narrative AAR, which will be posted in the Infinity section of the board hopefully in the next few weeks.

Known as 'القطط السوداء' or 'The Black Cats', this band of mercenaries operate from the 3rd moon of Acontencimento, a forest moon known as Hermoso Bosque. From this secret military base they utilise advanced tracking and communications systems to monitor the large amount of incoming civilian and industrial traffic to Acontencimento, as well as probes that monitor the mostly automated mining crafts working the outer rim of the system. Should insurgent or pirate forces strike the Black Cats will be one of the rapid reaction forces called upon by the Acontencimento prefecture. Their high price is deemed appropriate by those who want a force for which completion of the mission target is paramount and complete discretion guaranteed.

Unit Commander - Kareem Boulos كريم بولس
Wearing a pressure suit this trooper, nominated as Alpha for the Black Cat interdiction unit, is equipped ready to be deployed in locations as varied as the surface of the planet or during breaching actions in zero g and even limited exposure to vacuum. His visor features an advanced HUD which provides a command & control interface for real-time direction to the rest of the unit and overlaying strategy information, provided by the myriad of drones and other surveillance equipment released into the area prior to deployment.



In these images the trooper is equipped in a camo scheme designed for the forest moon of their military base. This will differ depending on the environment that the force will be deployed in.



The trooper is equipped with a combi-rifle and sidearm as well as mono-edged combat knife. A ballistic impact vest and armour provides limited protection against small arms fire and fragmentation debris. In this example the unit Alpha is carrying supplies, indicating that he is operating for an extended period, most likely for a training exercise within the forests surrounding their base.



C&C very welcome, the next miniatures will be along in the next day or so.

I really like these guys, but since you wrote that background information: Why didn't you go for a forest base?

The camo suit should accompany the mission, but this seems forest camo (from their military base) for an urban zone? I really don't mind myself, it's just something that came up when reading the background.

Thanks Soulcow, yes you are absolutely right! Makes no sense to have a concrete base if he is meant to be walking through forest..

(I've changed it now).

Next up:

Black Cats KTS Trooper - Hakim Iz-al-deen / الحكيم عز الدين
The shipping lanes monitored by the Black Cats are a key route for exports and the pharmaceutical industries operating from Acontencimento. As one of the key objectives of Beyhan Resources Sti is to ensure the safe shipment of these goods a number of Kaplan Tactical Services units (the security arm of BRS) operate within the Black Cats mercenary group.

Pictured here is a KTS trooper equipped in forest camo-pattern uniform. Hermetically sealed the suit offers protection against atmosphere variations, such as extremes of pressure and temperature, and even chemical and biological weapons. Such equipment is vital considering the various environments in which the mercenary group may be deployed.




This trooper is armed with a standard issue combi-rifle. He also carries a 'Bllitzen', a non-leathal electromagnetic weapon used to disable high-technology threats.



Any more C&C very welcome, hopefully some more to post over the next few days.
