To Infinity, And Beyond…………………………

While browsing Facebook the other day one of the trading groups that I am in, had someone selling the Infinity Operation: Icestorm starter set. Now I have been eyeing this up for some time now, mainly down to the fact that I like the Anime look of the models. The person selling it wanted £50.00 or a trade for some 40k Space Marines (got loads of them still on their sprues!) In the end we went with the trade, I’ve sent the marines this morning and they have sent Operation: Icestorm this afternoon. Now I know that the starter set contains the basic rules (unlike 40k which contains most of the rules) but it never hurts to pick up the full rulebook.

Now It turned up a little while ago along with 3 models and a set of Holo ads, all of which I ordered from Element Games. Now they do offer a super fast service, if its in stock and ordered by 3pm then it will be dispatched that day. I place my order at 2.40pm and it was picked, packed and shipped before 5pm.

Now I only ordered 2 models and so was surprised to see a 3rd model in the form of the limited edition Authorized Bounty Hunter, which was given away free with pre-orders of the book. The 2 models that I ordered were PanOceania Fusilier Sniper and the Nomad Alguaciles Sniper so I can expand the models in the starter set!

The other thing that I ordered was a set of Holo Ads made by Micro Art Studios. You get a A4 size piece of 3mm MDF laser etched (and cut) and 3 perspex graphic panels.

As you can see from the 2 pictures the MDF parts have details etched on to them and look like they will go together well. Their is however the burnt smell from where the laser has cut the MDF. The graphic panels have nice crisp images on them. All 3 have a protective film on one side but nothing on the graphic side, and the larger one of the three has some scratches on it where it has slid in the packet. The one in the bottom right of the picture has had the film removed which makes the print more vivid in colour. I have never worked with laser cut MDF before and hopefully the “burnt” smell will fade. I like the look of the Micro Arts line for Infinity and will proberly end up buying some more of it in a few weeks time.

Hopefully I will also be able to use the Deadzone terrain that I have got!

    The burnt smell should definitely fade. It hits the hardest right after you open any packaging, but it fades quickly

    You’ll be fine with Deadzone terrain provided you make lots of solid chunks that block Line of Site. The rule book suggests nine pieces of ‘Large terrain’ (at least 8×8 and 3-4″ tall) and six ‘Small’ pieces (at least 4×4, 3-4″ tall) with plentiful scatter between them. You also want LoS blocked between deployment zones (12″ on a 4×4′ table) and some type of asymmetrical placement where choosing deployment zone does matter.

    Good luck! It’s a fun game!
