Hi there. Mark from Weston-super-mare here. I've just joined and I don't know where any of the venues are, but I'm up for joining the league, work restrictions permitting. I play nomads, pano and combined army. What are the details of the venues that are being talked about?

Hi Mark, you'd be more than welcome to play in the league also, we're hoping you can get at least one game in every fortnight and as we don't have a particular club night you should be able to fit this around your work commitments. :)

Are we going to use only the official N3 rules and profiles with the escalation league? I see it as the tidiest option tbh. The rules in HS and CP refers to N2 and for beginners they will not be very for friendly for this reason.

The book is designed so that everything referenced in HS and P can be used with the new N3 rules. Hopefully the PDFs will be out for the new profiles by the start of the league, if not then we'll be using N2 profiles until they are as they are the legal ones.

I guess my point is that new players may struggle with that as the N3 ruleset is already pretty bulky.

It would, however, make lots of models unusable and Aleph and Tohaa completely unplayable.

Just a heads up that the N3 profiles for all units have a tentative release date of the 6th-8th. :)

I have half an eye on Infinity but haven't read any of this thread yet, what are we looking at as far as model requirements to get involved?

We'll be starting off at 120 points and going up to 150, 200, 250 and ending up at 300. 120 points can generally be made from any of the starter boxes and 150 is normally a starter box plus a blister.

Rules-wise, they are all free to download from the official website and I'll put up some download links shortly, the book just comes with loads of extra fluff. We're just waiting for all the updated unit profiles to be formally released which should be this week and the official online army builder and rules wiki should be out in the next month or so.

Ariadna are pretty sweet, I'd love to try out the updated Vet Kazaks. I take it you are picking up the 'vanilla' starter?

One copy of Icestorm 3rd edition and one copy of the 3rd edition rules have turned up at the store should anyone still be looking at joining and looking for a starting point :)

Just be aware that Icestorm does NOT contain the full rulebook. It only has a set of Quickstart rules and missions for the starter forces.

Just want to make sure there are no misconceptions. :)

cheers for the heads up, playing Ariadna I see no need to pick up icestorm anyway. I do however like to have a physical copy of a book so I can read it in bed or on the toilet XD

I completely understand that I knew about pdf and still bought printed copy, same with any other games, some I even dont play and still want to have book. I have hundreds of ebooks and pdf because I cant afford to buy house with my own library room :D, but you cant smell fresh prints on kindle.
