ITS 2014: Cliff Notes Edition

The 2014 Infinity Tournament System season (try saying that quickly ten times) introduced some new missions and tweaked some of the missions from the previous season.

To focus players' minds at the Spring Challenge last month I did a set of summary slides which were shown before each round. I've now added ones for the missions we didn't play at the event.

Lifeblood was one of the new scenarios for the 2014 season. It has slightly stricter army list restrictions than the other missions as you not only need some Specialist troops but also troopers with specific ammo types to destroy the crate objectives after they've been searched.

2014 Infinity Summer Challenge - Campaign Weekend

This Challenge Series event is made up of a single two-day campaign tournament.

 

Saturday & Sunday Daytime - 400pt Campaign Tournament

The current plan is to play four games across the two days, allowing plenty of time for people to write new lists between each round as they gain XP to spend on army upgrades and Spec Ops.

 

Saturday Evening - Fun Stuff

Open gaming including board games, Infinihulk etc.

Infinity Play/Results Sheet (Updated for ITS 2014)

Micro Art Studio Infinity Tech-Coffin x 2

Company: Micro Art Studio

Retail Price: 
£5.99

Part of Micro Art Studio's extensive range of Infinity items, this blister contains two resin 'crash coffins', one-person re-entry vehicles. Specifically designed for some of the missions in Campaign: paradiso it's also useful as a general objective marker.

 

 

Looks & Styling

Representing a landed and opened pod, the crash coffin has a fairly high-tech feel. Detailing is crisp. The design has the two control panels clearly in easy reach of the set, my one (minor) gripe with the aesthetics of the design would be the three-part seat belt being neatly closed after the occupant has crashed down into a gravity well and scrambled out.

Bandua Wargames CTB Crates x 2

Company: Bandua Wargames

Retail Price: 
12€

Bandua produce a wide range of laser-cut MDF terrain including an Infinity-specific range. The CTB crates are from their general SF range.

 

Looks & Styling

The CTB crates are relatively plain in style however the etched surface detail and the slitted areas work well together.

 

Parts, Fit & Construction

Each crate comes as a sheet of MDF containing four sides, the top and bottom.

2014 Epic Winter Warmer

This Saturday I headed ninety miles up the road to Vanguard Wargaming in Bristol, for the Epic UK Winter Warmer. This is a slightly laid-back tournament with no restrictions on army lists so all sorts of experimental stuff can turn up.

Due to misjudging the length of the drive I arrived about 15m late so it was pretty much straight into the first round against Ben's Black Legion Chaos Marines.

 

Round One

   

Generally excellent scenery. This game was really an uphill struggle all the way, which turned out to be expected as I'd got paired against the winner of most of the previous Winter Warmer events. It eventually went 3-0 to Ben at the end of turn 3 but would presumably have been 5-0 if I hadn't managed to rally the remaining Plaguereaper, both Plaguehounds and a fourth formation, I think one of the Death Guard Retinues.

Death Guard Winter Warmer Progress

This Saturday I headed ninety miles up the road to Vanguard Wargaming in Bristol, for the Epic UK Winter Warmer. As always, a deadline is wonderful for getting painting done and I was prompted to make another Defiler and to get more paint on the existing models.

 

Defiler Seven

I started off with a couple of ideas based on Plaguebearer torsos on top of machines but ended up with no torso at all on the final model.
