Infinity and Warmachine

Well, this is supposed to record my games as well, so I probably need to write about today's game.

Played infinity at LvlUp vs David.  YuJing vs My Aleph.  At 200pts, attempting to learn N3.

My list consisted of
  3 Devas (Lieutenant, Hacker, Spitfire)
  Naga Sniper
  3 Dakinis (HMG, 2xCombi Rifle)
  2 Thorakites (SMG, Combi Rifle)

It was a good fun game, with me winning deployment, getting everything in cover initially, with the HMG and Camo sniper covering most of the board.  I got no pictures sadly, but 1st turn was basically David running stuff forward, and exchanging fire with those 2.  The HMG eventually went down, as did the Sniper, but only after dogged had meant that she continued to shoot people even while bleeding to death!
The rest of the game was back and forth, with NWI and templates eventually helping me to win by eliminating the last model with my last order of the last turn.  I had the Devas, and a thorakite left, so it was a bit of a pyrhic victory.
I have to say, that I am liking N3.  This is probably the most fun I have had playing infinity, against another new player, where we both had a bit of a shaky understanding of the rules, but enough to play fairly independently apart from a few rules questions.  My opponent was a really good fun guy, and I look forward to more games against him.

Painting recently has been Warmachine based.  I rebased the Storm Tower that had somehow fallen apart, and worked on my Storm Strider.  The actual strider is finished now, and I just need to paint up the crew.  Of note, the legs have fallen off this thing at least 3 times.  Its probably my fault, but pinning them seemed like too much hassle, and now it is on the base, it should last.  This is the same Strider that feel out of a 2nd (3rd if you are american) floor window a while back.  The array at the back was lost in grass at this time (it was 24 hours before I realised it had fallen), but I have finally managed to get one from Privateer.

Talking of Privateer, its interesting to note that the first time I contacted them about this, I got a message asking which part was missing, and then nothing.......For months (at least 6).
The second time, I went through the missing/damaged parts service, and was very honest in how I had lost it.  They couldn't help, but gave me an alternative part of equal value to order from the online store, and instructions for letting them know I wanted something else.  I was nervous (this had the potential to net me a spare pair of Stormclad legs after all), but they came through and I quickly got the part I actually needed.  So, all I can say is well done store and replacement parts, and BOO HISS at their customer service department.

Comments and thoughts most welcome, both on the Infinity list and also the paint job.
