  1. i also have a 200 pt ITS thingie oncoming in for new players, just finishing painting the 300 box and a few other things i managed to grab... however, my Rasail box is still incoming...... so i though i'd go with something like this: Tohaa ────────────────────────────────────────────────── 10 3 IGAO Combi Rifle, Nanopulser, Stun Grenades / Pistol, DA CC Weapon. (0 | 27) GAO-RAEL Combi Rifle, Adhesive Launcher / Pistol, CCW. (0 | 28) KAMAEL (Forward Observer) Combi Rifle / Pistol, Knife. (0 | 13) MAKAUL Heavy Flamethrower, Eclipse Grenades / Pistol, Viral CCW. (0 | 13) SAKIEL Lieutenant Viral Combi Rifle, Nimbus Plus Grenades / Pistol, Knife. (0 | 24) KUMOTAIL Combi Rifle, D-Charges / Pistol, Knife. (0 | 22) MAKAUL Heavy Flamethrower, Eclipse Grenades / Pistol, Viral CCW. (0 | 13) KAELTAR (Chain of Command) Combi Rifle, Flash Pulse + 2 SymbioMates / Pistol, Electric Pulse. (0.5 | 26) KAMAEL Paramedic (Medikit) Combi Rifle / Pistol, Knife. (0 | 14) MAKAUL Combi Rifle, Eclipse Grenades / Pistol, Viral CCW. (0 | 20) 0.5 SWC | 200 Points Open in Infinity Army was thinking i could forgo the makaul with the combi and go with the viral ccw for a gao-rael spitfire.... please let me know (the other options i picked up are the gao-tarsos hmg, kosuil with shotgun, and also have Aelis..) as always, thanks in advance.. -Rom
  2. need to put some surf boards on the bases thanks for the extra pictures Dasaan, that box is the next on the to-buy list. gotta lend you my dice, they will totally monkey with your numbers. my Chaksas i've painted as groot kin... if the Tohaa got the plants parts the Chaksas can have the trunk bits... would add a pic but the browns tend to meld into a silloette shot pretty much every time... need a proper light box...
  3. personally i'd rather pay the few points more for the extra resilience. and leave everything as is... in the last 6 months or so of games with both my Tohaa and my Nomads, i have not ever succeed the dodge out of fire templates.... (my dice roll mostly average until in a situation when it matters, then they get repugnant and just do the opposite...)
  4. Damn Perseus, that is pretty sweet. been looking into doing the magnet thing pretty hard and like the $30 tool box option...
  5. should have mentioned what i'm doing now: I'm using a (work boot) shoe box (14" x 14") that I've cut out pick and pluck trays to is pretty getto but was functional for most of my minigames in the past... everything in one box... but with all the delicate parts on these minis i might have to not go homemade on this one... i was thinking that i'd need some type of hardshell, think one of the local stores actually has KR in stock...i'll have to check em out... if there is any other favorites or recommendations i'd appreciate the heads up. thanks again guys, -Rom
  6. Hello again, yet another noobish question, how to you transport your figs? any good case options? just finished assembling the 300 pt box and a few extras and have never seen so many fiddly bits that I can see getting snapped off or broken in record time.. (Hell, I had a couple of the helmet horns break when assembling that I might be able to call battle damage, but don't want a whole force of bits ) Thanks again, Rom
  7. Bakunin works, I've been collecting them for a while now. Just don't have their tag, but have a lunkhod, tsyklons, meteor, and Salyut zonds... (Don't have the basic zond box) Have the old Bakunin box, couple rev healers, custodier with shotgun, kusanagi, taskmaster, Zoe and Pi, Avicenna, moderator sniper, support box. Sin eater with HMG. Morlocks box. Had the riot grrls on the 'to buy' list and wasn't sure on the morias... Never used prowlers yet (morias either for that matter) and know I want to get a couple more zeros.... and yup as tonight helped prove my deployment is where I will need the most help, it was pretty sad really. My haqq buddy had Maggie on the table and still had a total of 13 orders... I was at 38% of my list at the start of my turn, yup loss of Lt as well... Lol. The weight of dice and massive order pools really lets him Rambo, even though he did have to spend 6 orders to take care of the iguana & its pilot... ( tonight I was running vanilla with my iguana, kusanagi as Lt, zero, spektr, intruder HMG, Zoe and Pi, tsyklon with feurbach, and aguacil with missile launcher..). Thought I had enough to cover but the board had a couple high pieces of terrain on either side of centre and even my prone minis were fully seen... Sorry didn't have the sense of mind to snap a pic of the board.... We played seize the antennas. Game ended after my first tun due to store closure... Got to get him to work on having a prepped list....:) was still fun, had some amazing saves but ap explosive ammo sucks.... So does the shock ammo from an HMG.... Maggie is a beast...
  8. hi all, wondering if you can help a relatively new player, it may be that i'm just lousy with tactics or not using the right mindset/models..... have to take the dice out of it and just deal with what they roll my regular opponent is playing Haqq and i'm having issues dealing with the weird stuff he is able to pull out of his lists... - the assassin character who starts as a token in my deployment area... basically gets to jump into my backfield and ganks half my list.... started adding a 360 vision remote to deter him from that setup but he still pulls it out and added a little buddy who wasn't as good. (though my taskmaster Lt. kicked the main assassin's tail last time, dice rolls got him....) - finding the little jammer dudes are a pain.... and their smoke grenade buddies. - no matter the points level usually out numbered 2 to one... any advice vs the horde.... or the bike rush always a pretty good game with him, he is trying to show what the Haqq can do, but i don't know all the general counters i could bring yet.... he does have a maggie and i have plenty of hackers & things to help give it a bad day... (usually we're running 200 pt games, but when he brings maggie i'm sure he will want to play 300) second army to deal with is the camo spam that is Ariadna (Kazak) forces...mainly see these in the local tourny scene, hope its just a phase but consistently getting handed the courtesy list of 8 or so models in a 300 point game i get to see those 8 and 12 - 15 camo markers... pretty sure a couple of those are mines... but only a couple. out of the three times i've faced those armies i seem to always run into the hmg dude pinning down half my forces (or a couple of them) and a wave of wolf things chewing up the flanks. granted i'm still sure its the way i deploy but they tend to move faster than i can to get to the positions... but i'm still learning that side as well. any guidelines on a all comers style list building for any of the 3 Nomad lists? (for gaming nights we usually have a couple go to lists and figure out what mission to go for after we set up the tables)... got a good few models to choose from now, in time i can get another box or two to help balance things... still having a blast almost every time i get to play, just want to up my game a bit. thanks, -Rom
  9. Nomads are my first army, they gave the opportunity to get the tohaa by chance. And now they will be my bait army to help get folks into the game once I have my tohaa to a proper painted standard.
  10. yup that's for me, thanks this would have slipped under the radar otherwise..... compiled and added to my word .doc....
  11. lol guess we just have to wait till there is another book..... and thanks, grabbed the colouring pages from mayacast... been obsessing over google images for a while now... i'll try the colouring pages and see what i can make of 'em -Rom
  12. sorry for the necromancy on the thread, but i think it still ties in.... i hope made a few purchases to add to the starter box and just assembled my first three minis.. (the support pack) but now i've hit another hedge/wall.... how the heck to paint 'em... still liking the green symbiote (thinking a light green with dark green wash) with a bone colour armour plate but i got no clue on the fleshtones of an alien race & "hair" colours (was thinking of a pull toward the purple or light violet of the colour wheel) sorry the colour theory always throws me into a bit of a spin... usually ill go for a walk and shoot a few pictures of ads or plants to give an idea of what flows better but, middle of winter and massive headcold has kept me indoors for the last week.... and another thing floating around in my fevered brainpan, i know they get a lot of flac, on the artichoke thing but are they plant based? and what of the chaksa servant race... (probably wayyy overthinking it, .. but i like stepping forward with a clearer picture... helps avoid the hobby rage moments & these metal minis might ding the drywall)
  13. Wow, inspired. Wanted to paint up my Avicenna to match my force' but won't be able to pull off the transparency, but white should do fine. ive been having fun with the red fury Lt, ramboing him about as my opponents chase after kusanagi's link team. thanks for posting your force
  14. I got into a bad funk a few times....(had 4 armies for 40k and fantasy, plus painting armies for friends.... I stopped painting for a year mid commission, still hate space wolves) what helped the first time was the wife getting me an airbrush, I always wanted to learn how to use one, but always shied away due to the cost. Found it helps loads getting the priming, base coats and the start of some highlights going. (The cheety shade/highlight method saved loads of time) The latest time.... Well I got into infinity, the not having to get 40 - 60 figs done is a real help. Found I could take the time to enjoy painting one fig again. Lately I've been trying to learn new techniques, play with extenders and different mediums to get different effects to show through. If you need to, find a mini you would like to paint or you think will be difficult to paint. You will get to stretch the skills and all else fails, the jar of simple green fixes all mistakes...
  15. nice, thanks for the clarification.... i've got lots to learn
