Photos from the Winter Challenge!

There has been photos from last weekends tournament posted on the Wargaming Trader. Below are some images of my Nomads and my mates Haqq and Pan-O force.  In my opinion playing with two painted armies on a great table is what war gaming is really about, so  I am really glad we all went to the effort to get our models painted!

You can view all of the images from the whole weekend here. A full review of the weekend and ITS in general is coming soon, but I defiantly want to thank Ian for putting this event on and the great prize support (even for just turning up we got a goody bag!). It was an amazing day of gaming and was great to meet up with other people who are enthusiastic about Infinity!

Check out my mates review of the Infinity Winter Challenge tournament that I attended last weekend. I will try and write up my own review on how my Nomads faired soon!

Well, Monday’s here which means it’s back to work and all the fun of the weekend is behind us. Also, we’re back from the Winter Challenge, held down in Exeter, and while we (“we” being myself, Adam and Darren) could only make it for one of the two days, we all had a great time.

Before I get into the meat of this post I’d like to extend our thanks to Ian, The Wargaming Trader, for his superb organisational skills for the day we were present. Also, thanks to Corvus Belli for not only giving us the game we all love, but also for providing a wonderful tournament system for events such as these, and the support they’ve shown by sending Ian various goodies for the prize pool. Finally, some thanks to Antenociti’s Workshop and Micro Art Studio for the prizes they supplied – plenty of Antenociti’s new line…

More Nomad Photos!

I have managed to take a few more photos of my Nomads. I can’t say I am a natural photographer (or good at Photoshop to make up for this fact!), but I hope they look all right!

Below is a photo of the first two Morlocks that I have painted (they come in a box of four). These models really remind me of the X-Men, without just ripping them off. It’s more like a nice nod to the mutant heroes. The cloak of the lady Morlock actually has a diamond pattern on it, but it’s tricky to photo! Also the lady Morlock is my best attempt at painting human(ish) skin. I normally paint alien models, so I have managed to avoid painting human skin for many years. Unfortunately this means I really don’t know howto paint human skin well. Anyway I went for a more purple skin tone, which I think works well with Nomads as they seem to like changing the pigment colour of their skin! Least that’s my excuse and that’s what I am sticking too!:)

Two Morlocks for my Nomads

The Moran are the work horse of my Nomads, providing Crazy Koalas, repeaters and specialist (if you go for forward observers anyway). I have painted on a dimond patterns on most of my Nomads and this is very obvious here! The pattern takes ages to do, but I am happy with the final result. The Koala also has a dimond on his eye (just out of the photo shoot), just to keep in theme!

Moran Maasai Hunter, with his cuddly friend!

I updated the Reverend Custodier photo with a run through Photoshop (I really need to get a professional like Leeman on this!). Hopfully it show the model off a bit more like it is in real life!

Reverend Custodier

Ok it’s not new news, but as I was following the Dire Foe sets I thought I would finish with a review of the Nomad model, Lupe Balboa. I think that the model is very finely sculpted, with both a great face and fine detail throughout, however it is in an interesting fencing stance. Initially I was not sure abut the fencing stance, until I saw the side/rear image. Now I am convinced that this will truly be a great model. Basically the straight on photo does not do this model justice, as it’s hard to make out her pose and exactly what she is doing with that sword! All I can say is that now, I am really looking forward to getting this model!
