Infinity League Round 1 Starts 19th January!

Postby Vyper » Fri Jan 16, 2015 11:44 am

Hi all, it seems we've got a good number of people who roughly know what they are doing now so it's time to get started.

Please could you use this thread to report games, choose pairings, ask questions, put up reports/pics etc. for everything to do with Round 1.

All Round 1 rules and missions can be found in the League rules thread and you have two weeks to play the two missions.

I'm leaving pairings up to yourselves to decide but I would encourage people to not play against the same opponent too often. If after the first couple of rounds we aren't having a decent mix of pairings then I'll impose some kind of rule. :)

I'm happy to take play anybody in the first round and I'll be down at the Duke on Thursday to play, advise and help with rules. I'm also happy to come down to the Duke on other nights to help out. My copy of the rules and my markers are being held at the Duke at the moment and people should feel free to use them, just please take care of them.

So, anybody care to play me at Mission 1 or 2 this Thursday?

Round 1 Matches.
Me vs Radegast - Mission 01 - Monday
Me vs Monk - Mission 02 - Thursday

I might be able to fit in an infinity game after Necromunda with you on Monday Vyper. Will remember my 120pts of Nomads this time.

Great, we'll see how we get on time-wise. Hopefully you'll smash me quickly at Necromunda!

On a happy note, I've got a print out of all the profiles bookmarked and bound for easy reference. :D

Also, few rules notes regarding stuff that came up on Thursday.

Measuring Grenade ranges - p20. "To determine what is the distance between two objects or scenery items, players must measure a straight line between them."
I incorrectly thought that you'd measure the parabolic arc of the grenade. It seems however that you just measure a straight line.

Liam, in our game I incorrectly added in the Cover Bonus to my ARM value when saving against the Light Flamethrower (not that it mattered!). Template weapons NEVER give armour/BTS bonuses for cover. This was a complete derp on my part!

The Berserk skill can be combined with the bonuses from Martial Arts. Berserk also includes the Assault skill which allows you to double-move and smack someone on the same turn. This is all on page 100-101. I'll make sure to have a more careful read through as Close Combat was completely overhauled from last edition.

Cool,

I've worked out 120pts and 1.5SWC of Nomads, I hope you don't mind but my Alguaciles will be being used as proxys for Moderators.

Just out of curiosity, who is using starter sets for their initial forces?

I don't mind at all. There should be a few people down on Monday to play games. We'll work something out.

Regarding the starter sets, I'm not going to have the Haqqislam starter set fully painted yet so will likely use what I have. My 120 points is looking like:

12 - Ghulam Lt.
12 - Ghulam Rifle
17 - Ghulam Missile Launcher
19 - Ghulam Doctor + Nasmat Remote
31 - Djanbazan Sniper
27 - Khwarij

Comes to 118/2

Celestial Guard
Celestial Guard
Celestial Guard

Domaru
Authorised Bounty Hunter

Yeah hope it's all sorted out soon mate.

As for tonight I'll hopefully make a better showing with my own nomads than I did with the Haqislam I borrowed off vyper last week.

Gonna try

Had my mission 02 game against Adrian today, managed to sneak in a victory based on points killed/retained. My Ghulams did sterling work, although his Vet Kazak was far too tough for me to crack. Even my Missile Launcher was too scared to attempt it!

Killing Dog Soldiers 101.
Step 1. Lure them out with disposable units (e.g. a servant bot)
Step 2. Suppressive Fire.
Step 3. ???
Step 4. Profit!

I played my Mission 01 against Radegast, earning 0 Objective Points to his 10.
Mission 02 was against AlWeeks, at a more reasonable 3 Objective Points to his 1.

See you in a fortnight, if I don't pop round for some friendlies before then.
