I guess this is bit of a cobbled together post. I was a bit snowed under in the run up to this weekend with real life business and a lot of hobby time was taken up by organising a podcast, which hopefully will be recording soon and I guess should get it’s own blog post as well. Anywho, I attended the Infinity weekend a Wayland this weekend which included seminars by Carlos and a tournament. Both of which were great and you can check out the podcast for more details on the seminars. https://www.facebook.com/TotallyCrit

Carlos was there in the morning setting up the tables for the tournament. Here are some photos of the tables.

I didn’t spend too much time making up a list. I signed up for the seminars and the tournament was added later so was definitely second fiddle so to speak. But here they are:

The thought process was based around whether I would find open or dense tables. After a lot of conversation about this subject I felt like this was the way to go for list building. So the first had bikes and Spitfires for close range and the other had HMGs and Infiltration to avoid or use range. This didn’t really work as the second list basically had one flank when I used it and really lacked mobility. The first list won both the games I played with it.

Game 1 Supplies vs Nomads 8-0

This went much better than imagined but was almost a total wash out. he set up quite aggressively with a lot of camo markers. I had first turn and figured out quickly that there were a few mines so set about making a dent in them. I think the 200 point size put me out of sorts and after my first turn he was nearly in retreat and I had no objectives. From this start things went bad for him and smelling blood I went for the throat and tried to retreat him off and grab an objective, he started turn three in LoL and Retreat.

Game 2 Frontline vs CA 1-8

This game was another schooling by Robin. If anyone doesn’t know him he’s one awesome player. It was close until his last turn, as it was our previous meeting, and I hope I give him a headache but the end result is a whitewash. I think my decision making was bad from the start as I used the second list and after actually playing with it realised it was bad with basically one flank and a Domaru on the other. The other place I went wrong is last turn when I tried to get the middle band and deny him the closest. My reasoning was we were currently 1st and 2nd so I needed to nedy him OPs. But it backfired and I finished 4th overall. I should have just gone for the middle, but then the result could have still been the same.

Game 3 Annihilation vs YJ 5-1

I set up last round against a club mate and we went at it. I used the first list and went in close around some buildings and managed to Spec Shot and take out an Aragoto and Guilang. The fighting was intense but I ambushed his Impetuous and dug out the troops he had on roofs before his Hisen decimated my link team. Luckily most of the damage had been done and I took the W.

Overall happy with that as again I was using my JSA, an army I am not too familiar with and again my only loss was to Robin. Yet again three good games vs three great guys and an enjoyable day. One thing to take away wad Classifieds. I always bang on about it for list building as even in Annihilation you need Specialists due to 2 point Classifieds, but I didn’t take my own medicine and that also cost me.

The main event was the seminars by Carlos though. Which was great stuff. I wont go into details as they will be floating around already. You can check out some images here https://www.facebook.com/TotallyCrit. There was a few thing revealed about N3 along with some dossiers that I hadn’t seen and some that I had. The second day had a lot of artwork and this did pique my interest to buy the art book as there was some great images of backdrops and such.

I’d like to thank Carlos, Tabletop Nation and the local Warcor Paul for a great weekend.
