Yaogat Panzerfausts: Bonus Edition

Does anybody even lift?
Despite being incredibly scrawny compared to the latest releases of the Morat Aggression Force, Yaogat Infantry hold a special place in my heart.  Maybe it's something to do with the way panzerfausts blew apart the first TAG I came up against or that MSV2 renders ALEPH's ODD useless.  Either way, in high points games I find them indispensible.

My only problem is that having bought one box on Yaogats meant I only had 2 sets of panzerfausts.  And the added problem of one obvious Lieutenant choice despite being such value for points (and SWC!).

Solution?  Impulse buy another box of Yaogats!

AAR: INFINITY: 300 points: MAF vs. NCA: ITS2014- Frontline

This game actually preceded the NCA vs. ALEPH game.

It started on a really good note.  As we were getting terrain ready, a little blue model fell out of one of the buildings and into my hand.  On closer inspection it was Bipandra!  The model who'd been missing from my mate's collection for over a month.  A very happy Neoterran force welcomed her back.  Angus would be relegated to Fusilier duty and Bipandra would return to the gaming table.

For my own force, I had spent a recent weekend rebasing my TAG and the old Sogarat.  It was a painful ordeal.  The models fell to bits.  Paint was chipped off.  Superglue fumes encrusted the paintwork in white frost.  It was an exercise in frustration.  Why rebase models that never get used?!

Because one day... one day... they'll get their time in the sun.

And the Raicho's time has come!

AAR: Infinity: 300 Points: ALEPH vs. Neoterran Capitaline Army: ITS2014- Supply Run

Battle ready!
I was lucky enough to be able to observe and report on a batrep from my gaming group between two fantastically painted armies at another FLGS.

I won't blather on too much- on with the reporting!

Tournament: Total Reaction 3: "The Return of the Combined Army"

Fun times ahead!
This is a departure from my usual blogposts in that it has my first Infinity tournament experience!

It was 250 points (two lists) but no Spec-Ops on ITS2014 variants.

It was held in Melbourne, Australia at the LaTrobe University campus.  It was superbly run and fantastically furnished with terrain (which if I'm not mistaken was generously trucked in and set up by many individuals donating their time and gear!)

Special thanks to the tournament organisers: Christian, Asher and Damien.  I was very impressed with how well it was organised, run and concluded (hilarious awards included!).

Raktorak: Scipio

Did I dun goofed?  Hold me Misc.
This was a bit of a impulse buy at the FLGS.  It's a Raktorak- a Sergeant Major- who currently doesn't get a lot (if any) play time.  Hopefully the rules will improve for him as he is an exceptional looking model!

I was in a mad rush to complete him as he will stand in as 'Kornak Gazarot' for an upcoming tournament.

Edit: Photobucket is not working well today- thumbnails OK- links not working.  Sorry!
