    they are my favorite standard in the game(usually bring 2)! fun tactics: hold it back to triagulate fire something annoying. sometimes ill move it up to get shot, bring it back later in the game when people forget about it and triagulate fire something thats really dug down(like a TO model in suppressive or a sniper) also, sat lock is hilarious... i mean i only ever do it if i bring an EVO but its pretty awesome!

    The Infinity Run

    there is a hacker naga, but its from the old starter. pretty boring model though tbh and they should have just updated it in the new starter... oh well, beating a dead horse there lol. that new asura though and bow girl has me droolin for vedic

    The Infinity Run

    yup one of my fave models! also, why on earth CB decided to resculpt a naga sniper(which is already an amazing model... actually possibly my fave next to the dasyu hacker) instead of doing the boarding shotgun minelayer just blows my mind... as thats the profile i used in almost every game haha.

    been a while! Forgot to say i did stop by the club! got to play some card games with Jay and Seth and maaaannnn it was fun haha. life update: got a new job at the company i work with and finally get to go back into the research field. Pretty pumped as i now finally get to go back to a real life day job making real life money as well as a bonus. Also... ba-dump... emily is pregnant and due in january so @Raindog can proceed with his future reading skills lol. infinity wise: had a bit of a falling out lately just due to lack of games. basically most of my games have been tournament games and my interest was fading due to not being able to get opponents even on a monthly basis. now with occupation change i should be able to make it work until baby comes and then back to square one lol. I've still been playing onyx. won an ITS with them but also took them to a large tournament in St Louis and did a lot better than i thought i would. Got to play against some really good players including Tom from mayacast and the guy who won twinfinity last year! Vedic or whatever they are calling them is going to bring me back.. been waiting literally years for it so I'm quite excited to bring them out to the Iowa Incident this fall for kinda a last hurray before a long break again lol. Hope all is well with you guys! Nate

    so two weeks til I return! My infinity life has kinda slowed down a bit since 'paca. Play about once every other week at this point. Still playing onyx but picked up ISS and morats(traded my steel phalanx) recently so those suckers will be 'sometime in the future when I paint them'. Still sticking with onyx, but have tested ISS a little(they are disgusting). Have had a lot of success with my 8x8 onyx list which has been fine tuned to be an 8x9 list thanks to kerr nau replacing HD+ legate haha. Tournament wise I'm going to one in St Louis this summer and meandering about going to Colorado for a brewery 5 game ITS because... brewery ITS lol. Sad that twinfinity was cancelled as that was going to be the one I wanted to go to... and no way in hell am I paying hotels for GenCon so kinda bummed about lack of playing, but eh tis life. Hope all is well with everyone~!

    lol there were just as many infinity folk there as aos and 40k had about double to either group with a 10+person wait list so it made ZERO sense to me at first... got the reasoning and its basically 'space'. Joe Rogers will run a separate infinity event now later this year(he runs superb narratives!) in wisconsin. Not sure(nor care) what 40k will do but their numbers are pretty big. I will admit: local who came up with me played High Elves and really really wants to play AoS, which we talked about trying it out and maybe doing a one day of it next year but now they are stand alones so thats a big NOPE for me lol. KoW is unfortunately just non-existent in my area so my models pretty much continue to collect dust lol. I have heard AoS is pretty decently size in midwest though. But walking past tables i think someone just had like 3 lord of changes and i almost burst out laughing....

    alright guys got some news along with updates! So went to the OFCC of the midwest(basically) called waaaaaagggghhhpaca in wisconsin! Always wanted to go to it when i played whfb, finally got to go this year but obviously playing infinity. Sadly will be the last time as infinity is being removed and its becoming an AoS only event(they are even booting 40kers...). so 3 single days 3 game tournaments. two of them narratives and one an ITS. I just brought onyx cause its 'paca so F it. First day was a yuan yuan narrative where you had to do weird objectives that were very pirate-y. It was LI 250 points and you had to bring at LEAST one yuan yuan. Your yuan yuan could get boosted stats too through objectives! So it was pretty fantastic! I played a rodok list as I wouldnt be playing one for the ITS so wanted to play them that day. Had a legate HD+, samaritan spitfire Lt and ikadron chumps to fill out with the yuan yuan. Finished second on objectives and really had a good time! ITS was probably my least favorite and not because of the guys but because the missions just really really suck for onyx compared to most things. Also my dice were trash game 2. Played the list i posted before with unidrons and then had another unidron variation with fraacta, noct ML and a Qdrone for stupid power pack aka death to link teams and those that dont have much forward deployment/infiltration lol. of course i played like arguably the best player there in that mission playing MO(he was reallllly good with them) and my dice were abysmal. still really enjoyed getting to play him! Then played a JSA player that is one of the best in minnesota who had 4 ninjas and saito lol. I somehow beat him still not sure exactly how except 'i rolled 5 dice on 11s and crit a lot' lol. Finished 6th which i was super happy about considering the missions and 2 of the 3 players i played were top 10 midwest players. Last one was my favorite. You made 150 point lists for a narrative. So you played modified versions of firefight, supremacy and annihilation. Obviously one group(ariadna...). So it was a team event where your Lt could duo with your teammates Lt. How teammates were selected was 4 people were put on a table. You all do a ftf wip roll and figure out order 1-4. The choices were partner, initiative or deployment(obviously last person gets nothing). Then it goes in order for selecting per usual. There were objectives as a team and then individual objectives to beat out your teammate. At beginning you all get 1 of 4 cards for your duo powers. Theres +3 BS as a duo, +1B as a duo, veteran and something else i forget. After the game the loser of the loser team gets nothing, winner of loser team gets to select another of the 4 duo cards, loser of winner team gets to select either a 4 duo card OR rolls on booty chart, winner winner gets to choose between metachemistry, booty or 4 duo cards. So that happened at the end of each game. There are limitations as its 150 points so no TAGs and no link teams beyond a single 3 member team. I took a samaritan spitfire Lt for kicks as i just wanted to eat things and took a unidron link with ML and two FOs. Then E drone and 2 ikadrons and 2 imetrons lol. It was surprisingly very effective! I ended up taking first but most importantly my samaritan became a badass and did badass things. he got an hmg, +3 phys and d-charges. along with being +3 bs in duo link. It was pretty funny. so that means he throws his mono thingy on 19s and dodges on 19s lol. killed Tarik with it which was first time using it ever lol. Also got to eat a kuang shi and boy that felt good cause screw kuang shi hahaha. Got a painted highlander from Joe Rogers who runs these fun narratives(he came up with the one that we did in iowa last year). I remember his beautiful painted whfb armies so its awesome to get a model painted by him. Last but not least: booked flights for Portland in April 10-17th. Plan on stopping by the club on the 15th(if its open) and emily will do things with her friends as I hang with you guys! I wont have models with me probably but will be good just to hang with you guys for that entire afternoon if possible!

    LVO Goodness

    yea... personally im fine because vedic and shas being released within this year would give me trouble concentrating on one or the other lol.
  10. Don't Panic

    Why do you pick your armies?

    mostly when we were all picking armies to start i wanted to make sure we had diversity and noone had picked aleph which was honestly my favorite appealing one anyways so i went with it lol. after first army though i wanted to pick 'distinctly different things' that would challenge me and as per usual wanted to play low rep'd things so my next two choices were shock army and shas. currently playing onyx and this one was the first choice that i really did mostly due to appeal as the models are gorgeous! also each one i chose plays really really different yet has some overlaps(nagas in shock, shas has a lot of overlap with my favorite aleph models in nagas/dasyu with shrouded/malignos, noctifers/malignos in onyx). my next choice will be a low tech army someday. im leaning towards haqq as its underrepresented locally.

    Rose City Raid Tickets

    yea emily and i were just looking at flight things for pdx. flights were just too expensive right now so we were waiting for them to go down... We'll probably just come whenever this year and try to make it next year unless things open up! And Adam, I agree about not expanding. 32 people(16 tables) is a lot for one person to handle unless you can get additional TO/assistance it's not a great idea to go higher than that. Hope you guys have a blast. Who would have thought brewery+gaming would sell out fast .

    i thought id share some funny stuffs/updates on gaming. while y'all were rampaging, meanwhile in iowa we were doing some pretty silly stuff in the surprisingly not terrible weather(although today its back to usual cold as balls december...). I've been running 'beerfinity' in my basement since august about once every month but took a 2 month break for iowa incident. My basement is huge and bare which wife has allowed me FOR THE TIME BEING lol to take over since we are sparse on furniture and are just beginning remodeling(just put in an order for hardwood floors today... looking so forward to the swearing of putting that together!). But yea so I have room for probably 5 4x4s downstairs but 4 has cut it so far and ive been borrowing terrain from flgs along with my own to fill it out. Have had decent turnouts generally with 6-8 people. Sad though because for some reason no one drinks my beer besides myself which makes me miss you guys as i know you'd drink it lol. I have mead on tap now too and its surprisingly delicious! Annnnyways back to topic: I decided to put fire under people's feet and make them uncomfortable. One struggle ive had with iowan meta is they really like to 'basic b***h' infinity and that drives me nutts lol. they didnt even play interiors until i forced it down their throats... so I had everyone bring 2 lists and models for each. threw them in a hat and everyone had to play someone else's list. I thought this would be a good learning experience and many people got to play against their own lists so it kind of taught you things about how others play things AND how to play against your list(along with learning new armies especially). THEN because im a bag of d**ks, I made everyone play with terrain rules. Only affect partial parts of the board but i didnt realize how many sweet building rules there were so i put those in(one is white noise and low vis lol). Everyone surprisingly really liked the terrain rules and learning how to deal with it. Also convinced someone to try an army he played lol. So win-win. Update on gaming: still playing onyx. For iowa incident I played aleph cause i was missing marut and i sucked at onyx at the time so i didnt want to let my state down as it was a dire states lol. Went 4-1. One loss was a toughy, but so well played by my opponent. I thought i had the game won but underestimated kitty bot cautious move abilities... boy thats annoying lol. finished 6th though so not bad out of 50ish people. Really enjoying onyx now. especially with the additional models recently(bit and kiss mesh so well). ive figured out a 'main list' which is an 8x8 list which i dont usually use spammy lists but it plays very well and is well rounded! I go back and forth on my second and third list. Ones a sphinx list with unidrons and the other is 'jump around' with rodoks samaritan and a xeodrone. i think i like the jump list more just because its more fun and less dependent on one model... here's the 8x8 list if interested: Onyx Contact Force ────────────────────────────────────────────────── GROUP 18 ÍMETRON . (0 | 4) ÍMETRON . (0 | 4) Bit Hacker (UPGRADE: Expel) Submachine Gun + Pitcher, Deployable Repeater + KISS! / Pistol, Knife. (0.5 | 19) KISS! Adhesive Launcher / Electric Pulse.

    oh wow i didnt update since may?! ha guess ill give a small rundown of things in between then: Twinfinity was fun. Nick pasch beat me by making like 5ish armor saves on the last order with an interventor running to an objective. that was a gut punch(although drooling over his models made up for it)! then my other loss was to greg strom in highly classified and nate did nate things at highly classified(failing a hilarious amount of wip rolls). finished like 20ish or something. then played in a small tournament that i was lucky enough to win with shas. then last tournament i took onyx which i had played like 1 game total before and got curb stomped like i should but learned the fast way and enjoyed it! Currently im painting up my onyx and green/yellow scheme. onyx reminds me a bit of learning how to play shock army. just really unforgiving compared to say shas or aleph. ill be playing my 'actual' aleph lists for the first time since leaving oregon at incident as im feeling lazy lol. thats the marut list and the other 10-5 list but now with danavas instead of thamyris cause im in love... hope all is well and miss ya guys! im trying to see if i can make adam's tournament next year but no promises yet.... have to see how life things go for a few months!

Unfortunately for me my matchup was about as horrible as it could be hahahaha. A very awesome guy which for some reason I'm terrible and have forgotten his name but he was from omaha. Verry good player and super laid back. great person to play and man was this game tough. he had a szalamandra hrmc, intruder hmg, 2 interventors, doc, engineer... chearleaders or something that just didnt come into play. so yea if you dont know anything about shas: we rely on on our camo and really suck against things with high armor and good hacking especially when you bring a sphinx. so yea, really uphill climbing. i really relied on my speculo this game more than usual. i placed him right next to his TAG and with a shotgun site on his engineer beside it. my opponent had a lot of games against shas as well as his buddy plays them a lot(he was there and ended up placing top 3 i think?). he got first turn. spent first few orders getting his TAG far away from the speculo haha. then tried man orders to discover the speculo but with -9 mods he just couldnt get it. so he pushed his sally up and went into suppressive. i really wish i had a hacker in this list tbh... because i tried shooting the sally down but my guns just couldnt do it. i refused the reveal my sphinx until 2nd round and just couldnt punch sally even with about 20 shots on it. i did manage to go on a carnage with speculo killing a bunch of chearleaders, his doc and his engineer while nearly getting his intruder. he killed 2 of my shrouded and had a grip on the midzone. but i finally managed to knock the sally down and then ran sphinxy up killing the intruder and then running up to the middle objective ftw. second game was against Don again... oh boy this game. seriously poor guy had some absolute crap luck against me. he was rocking radna again this time. had scarface and his engineer(NEED TO GET THOSE MODELS), spetz hmg, vet kazak, uxia, molotok unknown ranger, line kazak, van zant... 2 things i dont recall. so quad control. he won and went first, i took deployment. his first order he spends on pushing uxia into my zone on top of a building next to my shrouded and fails to discover. then pushes vet kazak up and does discover a shrouded but fails to kill it after an order or 2 somehow. as his known ranger comes up i reveal speculo to catch his doc in the blast. down goes doc but also speculo *shrugs*. he then pushed scarface up. I ARO with malignos AHD but fail to get it. he finishes his last order and finally does get the shrouded. My first order I crit total control scarface. annnnd then kill his engineer, line kazak, uxia, spetz and unknown ranger........ with his own TAG even though it was only bs12 it just had so many people to shoot in the back it was just stupid. his second turn he had 3 orders. brings on van zant. gets a shrouded i think. then i kill van zant with noctifier spitfire in my turn. push guys up. just controlled areas at this point and grinded it out. last game was against Adam again. this time it was a firefight. i did not want to fight vanilla yu jing in a shootout haha. he also had sun tze sniper, guijia, oniwaban, shinobu, engineer. peons. he won roll and went first. i had to take on 11 orders somehow. i brought the spread list as i felt more comfortable with it than sphinxy. this game was a lot different than our last one. no more nate stupid luck it was adams turn haha. guijia runs up. i ARO total control and get it as he does it uncontested to flame down the malignos. my turn i put 3 monomines next to the guijia lol. then push noctifier spitfire up next to sunny z and splash down some suppression. he does a brilliant move and gets all the mines by discover shooting with his oniwaban shotgun and got them all in one blast! drats lol. so guijia bounces around again and starts tearing up my shrouded. sunny z decides to dance with noctifer and was at -12 but crit me on a 2...... sigh i was due for one lol. both my malignos were gone along with my spitfire which is a ton of points so i was on the back of the wall. enter a hero: aswang spitfire. kills guijia after pretty much all my orders. shinobu runs up to a building to go after a shrouded but gets caught by a mine so my luck swings wildly back! i then know that i probably have to kill the oniwaban to get the W. I had 5 orders to do it. aswang takes shots, he makes armor saves fails guts and gets to a position that cause me to waste a full order moving. then i shoot him again, he makes armor. then shoot him on my final order, get one hit and he fails it. so yup won on the last order of the game! ended up winning the second day overall. good times and man i love playing shas as they are so fun to play. hope all is well and good luck in Wotan erybody!
