  1. Good call Gamma ray @Stuart1302 we're over in Sheffield if you ever make it that far and mostly play at Outpost, I know there are several reasonable sized groups in northern England dependent on how far around the M62 you are. There are guys who play at Harlequins up in Preston, there are people who play at Stockport at the northwest gaming centre/ Element games, there are the guys who used to be Leeds night owls, or still are who run northern open and there are some guys in Huddersfield, never met them but I'm assured they're coming to one of our tournaments next month (should really post that...) If you're on Facebook there are plenty of people on UK infinity the game, Infinity Northern Alliance or on our own Steel City infinity. Otherwise if you tell me where suits i can try and reach out for you.
  2. +1 for @Flipswitch answer, There are some other little tricks, the bikes will have a much harder time if you have a maakrep watching the advance routes since it can see through their smoke screen, other options may be units like the legate hacker, if you're opponent is putting down marauders his white noise zone can be used against their MSV1 to allow you to get closer, equally cyber mask is useful as USA have slightly inferior WIP on no other method of detection. they also have a decent enough phys to dodge all the irritating templates Overdrons would work well with their Plasma or rocket death loadout, their Albedo also works against the msv1 USA have scattered about. Assisted fire on unidrons or Q-drones
  3. I'd second this one, I've run a lot of tournaments for other systems and some for infinity and before now I've had to take somebody to one side and DQ them for unsporting conduct (in one case threatening to hit their opponent with a chair (in fairness the guy deserved it, still a DQ for an actual threat of physical violence)), had to ban them for a few after as well, it's never a nice situation and it reflects badly on the game they play and discourages engagement from others. I'd start with a talk to the organiser and raise your concerns, really after that it's up to them what they do with it, if they're content to let it drift away under the carpet then I'd have a word with both parties one on one. Overall in a group we try to avoid playing gotcha, tends to bring out the very worst competitive dad syndrome in everybody so generally attempting to nip this s*** in the bud before it happens by as they say in the rulebook explaining what you are attempting to do in detail, "if this guy moves to here will that guy be able to see?" "yes but a couple of mil back he wouldn't". As long as it isn't revealing your secret information you should be forthcoming with stuff. Sometimes you unfortunately do have to explain to people that just because it's a competitive game you don't have to be a d***.
  4. My usual: step 1: Daturatzi runs up a board edge and cobs smoke to an appropriate place. Step 2: Ko-dali walks into or behind the smoke. Step 3: combirifle / assault pistol fun time Step 4:
  5. And you probably don't have the points left to exceed the AVA of vanilla anyway...
  6. The forum is giving me trouble uploading so here is a link to my FB blog with a couple more pictures. So I used a duo last night playing transmission matrix against Pano last night and these two were the stars of the show, the AP HMG took down a Hexas sniper, an Aquilla HMG and a swiss guard HMG, didn't fire the T2 sniper in anger (drowning the target in AP HMG rounds was going to be more effective and there wasn't much left to shoot with T2 in reaction), but it did use its chest mines and SMG. Overall I really rate them, their loadouts are brutal even if the chassis is inferior to other factions S5.
  7. @Jandrus no good ones on me at the moment but they're going on operations this evening so I'll grab a couple then.
  8. Sorry was offline for most of the weekend, but did manage to reach this stage with my blackjacks: (joan for scale)
  9. The top of his head is level with the debil dogs shoulder, the top of the devil dogs head is level with the bottom of the sniper rifle scope, took a picture but the mobile version doesn't like it.
  10. Picked up mine last night, they are absolute beasts of models: Just need to work out how to convert the SMG to a DEP and the Sniper to a HMG for the second
  11. For my own part I'm expecting to see Vet Kaz mixed in with line kazak links, vet kazak links and a greater sprinkling of Molotoks and H:RL Speculation/wish listing One bike and his dog sounds pretty cool and would be different enough to the US:A A non-camo linkable elite MI (possibly more towards a "battle spetznas") Haris Character Dog soldier Possibly another Low-tech S5 or maybe even a Low-tech S8 Some sort of visor
  12. Tried this theory out as a "fun direct action list" during Wotan (without the Q-drone), write up is here TL:DR is that it's fun, this game went hideously wrong for me as in my insane rush to kill the intruder sniper who was basically going to massacre anything I left in a good position I managed to run my sphinx into range of a wild cat A:HD and then had to kill it myself with my Rodok link.
  13. In short CA are super fun to play: I tend to find shas are hard mode, Morats are medium-easy and Onyx and vanilla are medium-easy, this however is mostly meta, mine involves a lot of intruders, Nisse and ghostwolves which all make extremely good anti shas tech (ignoring my camo while benefiting from their own) where as nasty tricks like AD, super jump, cybermask and white noise work a charm, the later two both have more access to hyper elite or eccentric forces that make CA fun to play. On Unidrons, personally I love them and tend to take them when I can as they are slightly more versatile than a vanguard due to plasma, dogged courage and shock immunity along with their synergy with hackers. Fluff wise I also think they fit the bill, mass produced high tech bio-weapons that can keep fighting when they should be dead feels very "horrific alien invasion" Onyx feel like a precision optimised terror force to be used as a scalpel, MAF are the blunt instrument you use to get the job done.
  14. I Got a pair of Overdron when they came out, one to run with Plasma snipers and one HMC, I started off with this multi barrel affair, but wasn't too happy with it. So I made a different version (being carried by this gunteam for refit) It's now occurred to me I don't have a particularly good picture of him now (this is in fact the only one) but I'm far happier with it now than I was. Not quite happy enough however so if anybody has a better suggestion I'm for it.
