    Finally finished painting my Fusiliers. These guys are basic line infantry, but they’re used in almost any PanO list you take.

    These are indeed very beautiful. Kudos and thanks for sharing!

    How is Infinity? I’ve heard good things and think their minis are very nice, but haven’t had a chance to try the game.

    That said, I should probably just head over to the video section and watch th Infinity battle reports. πŸ˜›

    You won’t get a very good idea of the game from our battle report Uthoroc, we got lots of rules wrong!

    It has an admittedly steep learning curve for anything more than just the most basic rules, but I love it.

    Basic rules can be summed up as.

    1. Move a guy
    2. Opponent sees if any of his guys can see that guy move.
    3. If they can, they declare a reaction to that guy, usually shoot.
    4. The guy you moved Shoots back, or moves, or dodges.

    That’s the common composition of a single “order” in Infinity. Each model in your army provides one order to spend on your turn. So, 10 guys = 10 orders. You can spend the 10 orders all on one guy, or split them up however you like.

    Check out this excellent video series for a more thorough introduction.

    LOL, Peter. I actually debated making a similar comment. πŸ™‚ It’s been a while since I watched your first report for Infinity, and I remember there being some talk about the rules. I should go back and watch that again for fun. πŸ™‚

    OK. Just watched them again. Damn, that was fun. πŸ™‚

    You guys did an understandably poor job when you take the rules into account, but it was still a fun watch. So many needless deaths! LOL

    Infinity’s rule book is certainly more valuable as a “rules reference,” once you already know how to play the game, than it is for teaching you how to play.

    As much as I enjoy the game, that aspect really does still need work.

    My advice, start with the videos I linked or learn from a friend. πŸ™‚

    Another good video.

    Side note. I’ll be playing against Carlos (Corvus Belli Spanish guy in the video) at an upcoming tournament. I’m pretty excited. πŸ™‚
