On an Express Elevator to Hell!!


Hey guys!

For anyone who has thought of wanting to try out Infinity, or just play some games, a friend and I are running a special Introductory Event at Total Wargamer on Saturday October 20th - full details below!




This event is designed as an easy introduction for anyone who wants to give the game a try! Or, perhaps someone who has collected some of the miniature range but not taken that step of having those miniatures duke it out on the tabletop!

The games will be taking place all afternoon on a specially constructed-for-Infinity City-Scape, featuring some of the latest range of Micro Arts and Sarissa terrain products.

Miniatures will be supplied for the games, with players able to choose from 5 different factions (Aleph, Haqqislam, Nomads, Yu Jing and the Pan Oceania Knightly Order). But, please feel free to bring your own if you already have a collection!
See the Infinity Website for more details about the game, and miniature range: http://www.infinitythegame.com/infinity/en/

We will be running introductory games designed for people who have not played before, and also some 'fun' games later in the afternoon.

The event is being sponsored by Corvus Belli, who will be supporting the event with the promise of goodies for anyone coming along and taking part!





The event will take place in the wonderful Total Wargamer store, near Evesham. Full details about the store here including directions:

http://www.totalwargamer.co.uk/total-wargamer-shop-evesham.html

The store is a real Aladdin's cave, with a wide range of different wargaming and miniature products, and now a recently expanded playing area!
Some photos below:





So we hope this will be a chance for anyone local (or not so local!) to have a fun day out! Also, to help build a focal point for Infinity players who live in the vicinity of the South West, and hopefully act as a precursor for future events!

A drive through the scenic Cotswolds, a fun introduction to one of the most fresh and vibrant games on the market, and a visit to a shop that would be worth a trip by itself! We hope we can make the event a worthwhile day out and welcome anyone who would like to come along.

Any questions or comments about the event please leave a comment below! And, I hope to be able to meet any Dakka-forum users who are able to attend on the day!


Thanks, Graham*

On an Express Elevator to Hell!!

Regarding the event, just a few things to clear up regarding this event and another event, called the 'Infinity Autumn Challenge', in Exeter!

I was contacted by IJW, a user both on this forum and the official infinity one (who has done a lot to promote Infinity throughout the UK, with various events) and it seems that I've managed to organise this event for the same weekend as his own, taking place in Exeter! Doh!

However, it's important to note that the scope of our events is very different.
The 'Infinity Begins' event, posted above, is aimed at beginners of the game, or those who want to try it for the first time. Of course we will welcome anyone who knows what they are doing, and simply would like a game on the terrain at the event, but at the risk of shooting myself in the foot (with a Combi-rifle, no less!) if you are experienced and want a more in depth - event driven weekend (that is far more inclusive) you will be better off going to IJW's event, The Infinity Autumn Challenge in Exeter.

Full details are here, and there is also a thread in the Infinity section of the subforum on the subject: http://wargamingtrader.com/infinity/autumn-challenge-2012

So, just to make it clear, our event at Total Wargamer is focused on the beginner/newbie, perhaps also the inexperienced player, who just wants to give the game a try for a few hours on the Saturday afternoon. Everything is supplied to play, so you only need to bring yourself! (Although, please feel free to bring your own collection if you would like to use it). It's going to be some casual, fun games in a great playing environment.

Hope that clears things up! But, please post here or send me a PM if there are any more queries/questions!

Thanks, Graham

On an Express Elevator to Hell!!

Just a quick post as I have had a couple of posts/PM's asking me, just to confirm that this event has no entrance fee.

You just need to bring yourself, your own minis if you want to, and the capacity to hold back the tears as your trooper gets riddled by machine gun fire, or not laugh manically as your cyber-samurai detonates an enemy with his explosive samurai sword!

Another event poster, this time with some girl armed with a machine gun and riding a future Honda...

Hey guys, final bump for this thread as the event is tomorrow starting at 12 noon !

I should re-iterate at this point that the event is being supported by Corvus Belli, who have sent a rather generous box of stuff to be given out to anyone taking part !

So as a final advertisement, one more poster - this time with a rather mean looking Haqqislam Soldier, who will hopefully be machine-gunning people tomorrow afternoon!





For anyone who can make it, hope to see you soon !

And it's not too late for any questions or comments - please post below or send me a PM!

Thanks, Graham
