Space Hulk: Brother Claudio.

Come here for a hug, Mr. Genestealer.
With CanCon2017 out of the way, it's time to get through my backlog on my desk.

A lengthy campaign has begun!

USAriadna Goes to Cancon 2017

Its time to defend that constitution.
Having whelped this 300 point army, it was time to take it to the big leagues (for me!).

I paid for a ticket and travelled to Canberra for CanCon 2017, Australia's "Nationals" for Infinity and what looked like a tonne of other game systems out there.

By this stage I had played seven games with USA... eight if you count that battle report from 2015... but I was dead keen to enter the beauty pageant!

And if getting punished in 5 games over two days against the best in the country is what it takes to get there then by Jove that's what I'll do....

The Unknown Ranger

There's only one God, Ma'am... And I'm pretty sure he doesn't dress like that.
Limited edition GenCon2016 model- the Unknown Ranger.

I haven't even looked at his stats that deeply but he has Chain of Command and is thus a specialist!  Sadly he is only one wound (so he won't play like an Avenger) but he won't be OP!

Ariadna: Family Photo

One big happy family.
I haven't actually put up a family photo of my Ariadna... so here it is.

There are a few figures missing (getting varnished) but it looks very impressive after such humble beginnings.

One day I might even play a game of 300 points vanilla Ariadna!

Grunt- Paramedic

I'm a specialist... really.
In tidying up the list for the next tournament, I decided to paint another Grunt as a specialist.

He was a straight forward paint job- refining some of the techniques I had learned from the past dozen or so Ariadna models I've been practicing on.

Airborne Ranger- SMG

Walking on.
First post for the new year!  It's been hectic as usual but I finally got to fit in some time for hobbying.

This is the first of the backlog of models I'm churning out this year.

AAR: INFINITY: 300 Points- Qapu Khalqi vs. USAriadna: ITS2016- Firefight

Credit: LordHayabusa357- "It Gets Harder From Here On Out"
After a massive break from Infinity I have decided to get back into the gaming side of things.  I have booked my ticket for the national tournament in a few months and decided to play a bit more frequently.

I cooked up a list, turned up at a one day tournament a week ago and promptly finished last!  Not the most auspicious start but I was very happy just to roll some dice and move my painted miniatures around a table.

Having broken the seal on Infinity gaming once again I teed up another match at my FLGS and set (what I thought) was a generous time limit of 3hrs.  Tournament games have to be done and dusted in about 90-120min so I figured this was ample timing.

So with a tweaked list (thanks to the help of an experienced USAriadna player) it was time to get cracking!

Desperado- Shotgun

Bad to the bone.
This is the second Desperado that I sped paint into the tournament.

He turned out quite well despite me cutting corners on the blending and the highlights- mainly because of Minoaturo Studio awesome techniques for painting muscle and and backpacks!  I've used it for all my Ariadna miniatures and I can safely say that it is by far and away the most "pop" parts of the miniatures.

Anyways- on with the slide show.

Desperado- Heavy Pistol

Say "what" again!
Another kind of speed paint... I did rush this model to get it tournament ready.

The Second Hardcase

Speed paint.
This was a speed paint to get ready for a tournament.

This figure was done in a day.  Sadly- if you look very closely he is not nearly as good as Hardcase number 1... but he is definitely gaming quality.
