    The Infinity Run

    Hello! Appreciate the callout. It looks like your Aleph are coming along nicely! Despite our lack of regular contact Jeremy and I are still around and check in on club activity here regularly. As far as gaming, I'm still pretty overwhelmed with school and Jeremy with work. We've worked in a few games over the past few months and are excited for all the latest news. With the Beasts of War campaign coming up, we've decided to take a little break until then and have been playing some Deep Madness instead. Still, we are hoping to make it to Rose City Raid to check it out from the sidelines and will likely make an appearance at OFCC as well. Looking forward to reconnecting and hopefully we'll be able to get back to clubhouse gaming at some point.
  2. Excited for the new book! Spec Ops looks fantastic but the style of the HI feels similar to the Taskmaster and Kriza Borac which both already remind me of CA a little too much. I don't need the army + book bundle but would be happy to throw a reasonable amount of $ at someone for Saito if anyone is going all in and wouldn't mind parting with him.

    Pax's Infinity

    I don't play CA so I can't give much advice but it's worth mentioning that the Shasvastii, a sectorial of the Combined Army and also available to the main faction, are getting a complete overhaul this year including rules and models. You might want to hold off on picking any of them up until they start previewing the new models. Of course this also means many, if not all, of the old sculpts will be discontinued. So if you do like the current Shasvastii sculpts or decide you like them better than the new ones after seeing them, you may want to look into hunting them down. And it's the Ikadrons (and Unidrons) that have G: Autotool. The Slave Drones, while certainly still useful, are just G: Servant as mentioned by @Natetehaggresar.

    Ariadna dice?

    You can find the faction dice from the Op sets on Ebay sometimes. There's currently 1 listing for 3 Ariadna dice for just over $10 shipped from Spain. Not ideal but it's an option if you can't fins someone local and you're willing to pay that much.

    Infinity RPG

    I bought into the Infinity rpg (physical core + all pdfs) and have been wanting to get back into rpging. Unfortunately I have almost no free time right now. But if someone manages to get something going I would definitely be interested depending on time and such.
  6. Hooray, the order is here! So the other week I decided to start college while working full time so I am super busy lately and not sure when I'll be able to pick my stuff up. If you could hold on to them for a bit that'd be great. Once I get adjusted to my newly packed schedule I will try to find some time to get them and shoot you a message to make arrangements. And again, if anyone that got the full bundle doesn't want or is willing to sell the Dart Aristeia! card or Coldfront Wardriver, I am interested.
  7. 1) Do people like the venue? I think the venue is fine. It's unfortunate that it is a drive for some people and is apparently spendy to stay but it's a nice middle ground between the Portland area and Seattle area Infinity groups. 2) Is the multi game system tournament event a good thing or does it detract from the Infinity Event? I think it's good for a once-a-year event for the club to showcase some of the different types of games people play there. While I haven't played Warhammer in a long time I do still love the game and love seeing other people playing and their armies. I think it's also a good opportunity for non-Infinity players to see the game in action and maybe even become interested. 3) Do you like narrative event or ITS events? Provided there is enough support I think it's good to have both. That gives different types of players an event to participate in that best fits their style of game play. 4) Is the painting requirement a barrier? This is a huge barrier for me. I would have participated this year and possibly even last year if painting wasn't required. That being said, I think it is a good requirement to have for a once-a-year multi-game event and it should be viewed as more of an incentive to paint than a barrier to play. 5) Is the price point a barrier? For me, no. 6) How many points do you want to play? 200, 300, 400? I have never played a 400 point game, nor do I really desire to. I think 200 and 300 are fine and probably best as they are with 200 points being for the narrative event and 300 points for the ITS tournament. 7) If you like a narrative event, do you want the missions to be secret and announced before play? I think the missions should either be completely announced before play or at the very least some basic ideas or themes should be noted so that people can tailor their lists to accommodate. Infinity lists do tend to be pretty flexible but it can be difficult to try to cover all bases with some factions or sectorials. 8 ) Should Ordo run Infinity events, or are Warcor like Rose City Raid enough or even preferred? I think the more Infinity events the better. If anything I'd like to see Ordo run more events! 9) What is a good weekend to run the OFCC? As others have said, there is never going to be a perfect weekend for everyone. I think the current end of August works fine. 10) How many games should we play in a two day event? 5 or 6? I think I would prefer 5 if I were to participate: 3 on the first day and 2 on the second to wind down. 11) If you did not attend, what were you barriers? Jeremy and I were able to attend this year so no barriers there. Again, the painted requirement is the main barrier for me but one that I agree with. I also wanted to give a big thanks to all and especially the event coordinators! I wish Jeremy and I had had the opportunity to hang out with you all more but we were only able to do the one day and had made plans for a meet-up there as well. And I hate bugging people while they're gaming but at least we were able to chat with raindog for awhile. Looking forward to next year! (maybe I will actually have a force painted so I can participate! ...but probably not 😐)
  8. My plan was to be able to participate this year but other things happened and I still have nothing painted. But Jeremy and I should be there on Saturday for a little while to observe, chat and cheer people on. Looking forward to seeing you all there!
  9. So, sorry to dig this up but funny you had thrown me an @ because I had actually just been thinking about looking into these now that Jeremy and I have been playing again. I'm too late for this one but am considering September (depending on whether I go to RCCC that weekend or not) and beyond. What are the standard requirements for these - Unpainted ok? Entry fee? Anything else worth mentioning?
  10. Hello! If you don't mind I would like a Dart and the Aristeia! Poster! I'd also be interested in the exclusive Dart card that only comes with the bundle if someone would be willing to part with it. I would be willing to pay someone a little for it if they would like. And this one's a long shot but if for some reason someone doesn't want the Wardriver from the Coldfront set I would be willing to buy that from them. I can Paypal you the money tonight if you want to send me your account info. Thank you!

    Riotgrrl Painting posted a live recording to facebook of the entire seminar - https://www.facebook.com/riotgrrlpainting/videos/903298376519161/ Also tons of pics taken and posted by Spud Spudlington to the WGC Infinity facebook group - https://www.facebook.com/groups/WGCInfinity/search/?query=adepticon seminar spud Lots of exciting stuff!
  12. Friend and I are really interested in this but still mulling it over. We're both a little hesitant about collecting yet another miniature game army we may not have much play time for. The sculpts feel a little off and there's always the concern of things getting stale quickly when there are only 2 factions. But Star Wars ground battles! I'd be interested in seeing how the game plays but don't think I'll be able to make it to a demo this weekend. I'm going to at least try to check out the rules and/or a Let's Play video sometime soon anyway.
  13. I would really like to do this but not sure if I can commit. I will try to show up for a few weeks but probably won't make tomorrow.

    From the video posted by Beasts of War today - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5PVE2xVxYBs The Uprising book will contain Druze, JSA, and 2 new Non-Aligned Armies: Ikari Company and Starco, Free Company of the Star. JSA, Starco, and Ikari troop types, AVA and Fireteam options can be seen in this image here - https://imgur.com/a/SMow0 posted to Reddit Troop types with SPECIAL listed under Fireteams in the image are allowed to have mixed Fireteams with other troop types specific to each. This is nothing new but is apparently going to be a pretty big thing with these new Non-Aligned Armies according to Carlos in the video. One example given in Ikari Company is a Fireteam Core with a mix of Keisotsu, Tanko and Brawlers. Another example given that is worth noting is a Fireteam consisting of Wu Ming and Clipper REMs. 2 Outrage characters available in Starco. One, possibly more, of the Yu Jing REMs available to JSA will be different from their Yu Jing listing as the Rui Shi available to Ikari Company notes "JSA version". And confirmed still 4 new Sectorials coming this year (JSA counts as the first of the 5 announced). JSA looks good but appears to have lost Asuka Kisaragi, Raiden, and Haramaki. Rumor is Asuka is now the Kuroshi Rider and that Ryuken Unit-9 and Tanko Zensenbutai are replacing Raiden and Haramaki respectively. I'm not sure how I feel about the other two new Non-Aligned Armies. They kind of seem like a pretty random lot of troop types thrown together. Each one has a core based in a particular faction or Sectorial - Starco has a lot of Corregidor while Ikari Company has a lot of JSA. Some interesting combinations to be made, I'm sure.

    Oh wow, a new book! As much as I'm excited for JSA I'm even more excited for that. Maybe now Joel has something to be excited about too. Those JSA models are nice and look like they'll fit in well with the current models. I was a little worried they might not. I like the Brawler as well though not what I was picturing. Looks like it's going to be an expensive month for me!
