  1. As a 'paint snob', who refuses to paint against fully painted armies, I would like to throw my 2 cents in. Everyone is entitled to enjoy the hobby the way they want. If one's priorities are work/family/other things, then they can play with card tokens for all I care. For me though, one of the most important parts of the hobby is immersion and I absolutely need to play with fully painted army against a fully painted army on a fully painted, good looking table. Am I a snob? Maybe, but as long as I find others, who share my view and play against them, I do not really consider myself as hurting the hobby or stigmatizing anyone.
  2. Thanks a lot for your input, Graviton. I can see that I have managed to cock up both of the lists. The first one should not have included a hacker (I probably uploaded the wrong version of it) and the second one was supposed to have Morat-Morat-Anyat haris, but I did not notice that Anyat does not form haris weapon teams with Vanguard :((( Anyhow, I will definitely try to give Witch Soldiers and Rodoks a go, but I would like to firstly focus on using the models I have already bought. I currently own: 7 Vanguard (painted) 5 Yaogats (painted) HMG Suryat (painted) 2 Sogarats (painted) Raicho + pilot (painted) 2 Oznats 4 Gakis Raktorak (painted) Kornak (painted) Anyat (painted) 1 Daturazi 2 Ikadrons (painted) 2 Drones To be honest, I am not sure if Morats are for me. I went with the 'whicherver models you like the most' approach. I think that currently MAF has the best looking, most coherent and most up to date range out of all the sectorials. The majority of the models are new with just some odd ones still needing a resculpt. I am not sure if they will fit my playstyle well. I do like a challenge. At the very least, I will end up with a bunch of cool looking models. As for the specialists, I thought the first list had 4 and the second one 3 (one of them being, as you pointed Dr Worm)? I do understand that Infinity is about objectives (coming from Malifaux, I would not expect anything else from a decent tt game). So what do you recon is the optimal number of specialists? Should I try to include 4 in every 300 point list? So, so far I learned, when building a list, I should focus on: - a strong core fireteam, which will do most of the lifting by either securing objectives or occupying my opponent so that the other specialists can take care of that - at least 3 specialists - some form of smoke generation - long range fire support - trying to include Dr Worm Taking the above into consideration, I have redone the first list: Revised list ────────────────────────────────────────────────── GROUP 110 YAOGAT (Fireteam: Haris) Combi Rifle + Panzerfaust / Pistol, CCW. (0.5 | 30) YAOGAT Spitfire / Pistol, CCW. (1.5 | 32) YAOGAT Boarding Shotgun, Grenades / Pistol, CCW. (0 | 27) ANYAT K1 Combi Rifle, Chain-colt, Smoke Grenades, E/M Grenades / Pistol, Knife. (0 | 25) MORAT HMG / Pistol, Knife. (1 | 22) MORAT Paramedic (MediKit) Combi Rifle / Pistol, Knife. (0 | 16) MORAT Hacker (EI Hacking Device) Combi Rifle / Pistol, Knife. (0.5 | 22) MORAT Combi Rifle / Pistol, Knife. (0 | 14) KORNAK Lieutenant Mk12, Light Flamethrower / Pistol, DA CCW. (0 | 41) RAKTORAK Vulkan Shotgun / Pistol, Knife. (0 | 22) GROUP 23 1 MED-TECH OBSIDON MEDCHANOID Combi Rifle, D-Charges / Pistol, Knife. (0 | 23) SLAVE DRONE Electric Pulse. (0 | 3) DĀTURAZI Chain Rifle, Grenades, Smoke Grenades / Pistol, AP CCW. (0 | 14) IKADRON (Baggage, Repeater) 2 Light Flamethrowers, Flash Pulse / Pistol, Electric Pulse. (0 | 9) 3.5 SWC | 300 Points Open in Infinity Army Yaogats form a Haris, Vanguard forms a core with Anyat. Lots of specialists, two solid links, Dr Worm and some (albeit just a little) smoke. With Raktorak and Kornak in the list, I have a strong urge to include a Suryat and run the three of them together. This would however mean, losing one of the Yaogats and part of group 2, which would if I understand correctly, hinder them useless. I would greatly appreciate more feedback. Thanks, Gru6y
  3. Hi all, So I have played a couple of times through the Red Veil missions and decided I like the game enough to invest time and money into the gorgeous models from CB. I decided on MAF as I love the new miniatures and abundance of fireteams to choose from. I bought some models and started to paint them and now I decided to tackle the army builder and see what can be put together with my current collection. I have assembled two lists. One based entirely on my painted models, the other one is based on stuff I own, but did not necessarily paint yet. I like the second one more, but wanted to put together something I would be able to play with immediately (I do not play with unpainted models). Please, bear with me, as I do not know all the rules (for example have no idea about hacking yet, hence no hackers) and I am not sure if the lists make sense gameplay wise. What I have painted ────────────────────────────────────────────────── GROUP 110 YAOGAT Boarding Shotgun, Grenades / Pistol, CCW. (0 | 27) YAOGAT MULTI Sniper Rifle / Pistol, CCW.

I find it really challenging to fit in all the stuff I want and maintain a reasonable order pool. - I do not like Vanguard load outs. I would happily exchange the HMG for a Spitfire to allow for a more short ranged punch. I will probably need to branch out to Rodoks for my go to specialist team. They seem much more versatile and all around better and more 'in your face' than Vanguard, which I think suits the MAF theme better. - I do not like the design decision to force cheerleader models into the game. I understand that this is an issue with game design and not MAS in specific. It also is a topic for a longer discussion, which with my very limited experience with Infinity, I am not sure I am entitled to start at this point. Anyway, please let me know what you think about the lists and what are your suggestions for lists / models that will not intimidate with complicated rules and will ease me into Infinity.
  4. I like what you did to her eyes. I think it adds a lot to the sneakyness of the model. On the other hand, all of the stealth and cover ops training will not help when you FLASH EVERYONE WITH THAT CLEAVAGE.
  5. Love the colour on your Iguana. Show us more!
  6. I think that additional lighting on an Infinity table is an awesome feature and something I would love to dig into: This table proves that even in reasonably bright environment, additional lights on TT add loads of character. Unfortunately, I am completely hopeless when it comes to electricity and from what I was able to gather from interwebz, you do need at least basic knowledge to build custom LED or EL setups.
  7. What a great thread! Very inspiring. Please, continue the awesome tutorials!
  8. I hate tactical rocks as they rarely mesh with Infinity-style bases. The model itself is nice, liking the cocky pose.
  9. More awesome stuff! I love the limited colour pallete, you're using. Also, digging your whites on the Crane, which have a very smooth / semi-translucenty / polymeric vibe to them reminescent of robots' 'skin' in I, Robot.
  10. I second that question! The Lo Pan's Noodle Hut is hard to pass, but $130 + VAT and custom charges is a bit steep for us EUers.
  11. Your models are stunning and pretty much spotless even in these high-res zoomed in photos. That is probably the best testimony to your craft. I especially dig the hazmat! I also enjoyed your painting vids, though I would like to see an improvement on the camera angle / lightning / zoom, as it is a bit hard to make out all the intricacies of what you are trying to show. Keep up your awesome work!
