"You look so cute in your different colored hats"

Did some conversion work on my PanOceania minis. All the male Fusiliers wear berets, so I thought the females should wear hats as well. I have always been a fan of garrison caps on girls.

This was the first time I used ProCreate putty. It has some really nice properties, but looks so dull in conversion photos compared to Green Stuff.

Oh, btw AA, try a little spellcheck. There's no such thing as Bertonians. Until now:

How did you spend your Summer Vacation?

I've been planning a paint scheme for my Infinity PanOceania forces. I've settled on a Mass Effect inspired theme of white armor with bold red accents and glowing techy-bits. Of course that meant another run through of Mass Effect 2. This time as an Infiltrator, with the sniper rifle and active camo, just more inspiration. If only clear polyester resin weren't so brittle...
The Infinity miniatures are a strange beast. They have very finely sculpted detail, but the production quality is not so great. Out of the 11 I have built so far 2 were short shots, 5 had that pewter tumor where the mold has started to shred and one had multiple pieces that did not match up. They are beautiful miniatures, but they take alot of work to get them there. I would not recommend getting into this game unless you can get the miniatures at a deep discount, as the quality of the miniatures does not justify the high cost.
In other miniature news, Our (not so) FPlGS has restocked its Warmachine racks and I was able to get most of what I need for my All Tricornes All the Time Cygnar Army.
Pretty much all I need is a Squire (which I forgot to look for) and then I won't have to say, "Magic Bullet, Magic Bullet, I'm out of Magic Bullets."

Infinity and last game night!

I'm just going to transpose the battle rep I wrote on TGN you can find the original here http://talk.tabletopgamingnews.com/index.php?topic=759.0

here's what the roasters looked like:

CB's Yu jing

Shang Ji Lt.
Celestial Guard Hacker
Tiger Soldier w/ HMG
Husong REM - Total Reaction HMG
Keisotsu Butai w/ combi rifle x 2

A^2's Haqq

Hassassin Lasiqs: Viral Sniper Rifle
Hassassin Fiday: Rifle, Light Shotgun, AP Mines
Daylami: Panzerfaust
Daylami: Rifle
Hassassin Muyib (LINK): Minelayer Rifle, Light Shotgun, D.E.P., Viral Mines
Hassassin Ragik: Lieutenant

So I (A^2) won the roll off for sides and chose the side with the 3 story building for sniping, but made him set stuff out first.

I than won the roll to go first :D

My first turn saw a Daylami with Rifle bust out of camo and waste a Husong REM, only after the Daylami with the panzerfaust managed to miss the same remote and subsequently get gunned down! It also saw my Lasiqs fail to kill a tiger solider with two orders! My last two orders were spent on the fiday moving up and stabbing a Keisotsu Butai through the heart! so we are both down two guys at this point since both my Daylami's are now pushing up the daisies thanks to ARO's.

on CB's first turn he dropped in his drop trooper, and gunned down my poor Lasiqs. He then did some maneuvering which included bringing up his Tiger soilder to try and get a bead on my Fiday and moving the hacker (who is in the same building as my fiday) further away from the action.

My second turn. thanks to Religious Troops, everyone is fine and gets to move! The Ragik use's his Lieutenant move to come up behind the drop trooper and blast his head off with a well placed shotgun burst. The fiday activated and tosses a smoke grenade to cover his assault of the hacker from the Tiger. Once he gets into CC the hacker evaporates and the rest of CB's troops have had enough!

It sounded like Sky and MP had a good game of Warmachine! Hope to see more of you Sky, especially if you are going to be kicking Mario's butt all the time!
