Ordo Fanaticus Presents the OFCC Infinity Events

32 posts in this topic

Ladies and Gentlemen,

 

The Ordo Fanaticus Club Challenge is fast approaching! This year the event will OFCC will be held from Friday,  July 28th to Sunday, July 30th at the Hilton located at 301 W 6th Street in downtown Vancouver, Washington. The Club Challenge will feature two Infinity Events.

 

The first event is Friday’s Face Punch I.T.S. There will a traditional, 300 point, three game ITS featuring Frontline, Transmission Matrix, and Decapitation. All models must be painted to a three color minimum. 

 

The second and grand event, is the Infinity Team Challenge.  Each team will consist of three players. The players will be able to use a single, 200 point, limited insertion list. A single 4 point Spec Op is needed with each list. All models need to be painted to a three color minimum. 

 

The Team Challenge is a narrative event.  Scoring will be based on sportsmanship, painting, achievements, and theme. The event is going to be different this year a little different this year. 

 

First, since this is team event, we are encouraging and rewarding team banners, team shirts, and team army displays. Anything that displays your unity will have merit. Bring team patches, dice, smoke templates ……. Don’t let us limit you. Surprise us.

 

Second, each team is required to bring a table and not just any table. Bring your best painted table. Show off your hobby glory. Not only is there an award for best table from the overall event, but points will be awarded on the quality, theme, and enginuity. Like last year, we want to intrigue and amazing the gamers from other systems with our terrain. 

 

Infinity is a cooperative game system. We want everybody to have a great time and will be awarding points for sportsmanship with each game. We are playing with toy soldiers. Let’s have fun!  

 

Since this is a narrative event, we value achievements over wins and loses. Each player will be given a list of goals. There are over thirty. You can only score them once. It is impossible to reach them all. Try your best to complete them all during your five games.

 

Finally, this is a narrative event. The customized scenarios will be revealed each round. To make things more interesting, as long as your Spec-Op stays alive, he can gain boons off the booty chart. If he dies, he restarts without his gained goods.

 

And now for Story: Operation Raindog

 

<<Dispatch: Intelligence Briefing: Priority Infinity. 

 

A viral outbreak was detected on the tech-ship, the G. Spencer. Infected personnel became homicidal, highly infectious, and at this point, untreatable. 

 

To prevent spreading the virus, the ship was purged. 

 

Naval Intelligence has tracked the source of the infection to  a supply shipment from the OFCC Medical Research Facility on Paradiso. All attempts to make contact with facility have failed. 

Your mission is to go the research facility, determine the source of the infection, and locate, and if possible, debrief the project leader, Dr. Eric S. Weber.

 

Eliminate all threats. Consider all subjects hostile. Kill on site. 

 

>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>

 

 

So you may ask what are achievements?

Well, I will give an example from the Rampage. Of course, these are not the ones that will be used for the Narrative Event, but they are a good example of what they could be......

Each Check is Worth One Point. 

Check off each only once during the entire Rampage. 

Have your opponent -Initial the Check!

im in a position where basically i have to say im not going to make it this year...  'sigh' This sucks!  I did post it on Iowa Infinity fb page.  I just have too many expenses(house...) to fly, not enough PTO now as i burned through too much being sick for a week along with a week long fishing trip my dad snuck in this year(haven't been able to go the past 3 years).   Also, I could possibly snake it in if those cases werent such, but it would take a lot of 'points' as this is the third year in a row it is on either my wife's bday or our anniversary lol.  Whoever does the dates please not july 19th or 28th next year *fingers crossed*.  I will make a vow to save for it for the next year and try to persuade a team to come with me to the PNW for a vacay.  I miss PDX sooooo much....

Thank you!

 

 

Now dream of teams and lists you can take!

200 points is intentional. George and I have a plan. First, it is easy to finish most games at 200 points. Second, making a limited insertion list at 200 points is hard. It favors no faction and forces choices.

 

That is why we did two events. The individual, bring what you like Face Punch, ITS and the team event.

 

Thank you for asking!

I don't know what I'm doing with ALEPH, but I'd still say the format favors some factions  :wink: .

You're over SWC, that list is non-compliant.  200 with Aleph is doable:

MY CHEATING!

 

Yeah, I was just showing that 200 pts doesn't fix certain imbalances that exist in the format. I'm sure my actual list would look a lot more like a flaming pile of garbage than anything functional.

There will be Ordo Infinity Patches for sale at the event this year. :biggrin:

Hey Eric,

Is it even remotely possible to purchase one and have it shipped to me?  If not no biggie but I'd looove to somehow get one.  My poor Ordo sticker finally lost its stick-ness to my alpha bag last week :'( .  Luckily the one on the kegerator still is there haha.

Totally haven't been paying attention. Asked Kyle about a Pride of Rodina shout out. Will hear from him tomorrow, he'll probably be on board (since he's flying all the way from Missouri just to come play with us!)
