The inaugural Midwest Massacre Was held this past weekend in Mt. Prospect IL, at Games Plus, and as mentioned last week, your very own Miniature Tim was one of the event sponsors!
I was also one of the players! The Gateway Region was well represented, even if a couple of team members weren't exactly from the St. Louis Area.
So what went on? How did the event go? How went the luck of the dice?!?!

Infinity is one of the most terrain-intensive games out there right now. Each table can vary in density, height and available cover so that no two tables are really ever alike. Personally I find this not only refreshing, but also a very real part of the tactics of each game as well. You could play the exact same mission on 3 different tables, and you would play the mission 3 different ways!
John and the Chicago crew have assembled a truly awe-inspiring amount of quality terrain for Infinity, and the tables at the Midwest Massacre showcase it!

No, you didn't read that wrong. I've decided to broaden my horizons in the tabletop, RPG and board game gaming industry and begin marketing myself. This is the first step in my journey to get my name and skills out to a larger audience, beyond just showing personal hobby work. I want to start slow and not get in over my head. After all I still have a full time job and a family, neither of which I want to, nor can, neglect.
So what am I sponsoring, and how?

…though to be honest, it should be more along the lines of a sound born of frustration, want to revert to bad habits and lack of immediate gratification…
Maybe I'll just stick with "When You're in it for the Long Haul".
Hey, I said I was going to be honest, right?

One of the most anticipated upcoming releases is the U.S. Sectorial for Ariadna (USAr). I wouldn't doubt that once released, we could potentially run entire tournaments where a restriction is in place that you have to use the USAr Sectorial and be perfectly fine. It really is that looked forward to across the hobby base for Infinity.
True to form leading up to GenCon, Corvus Belli is teasing images once again. One of the latest actually having "Independence Day" on it, so perhaps it will be revealed on July 4th, with a GenCon release? Who knows. What we do know is that the community is hungry for this and our cries are being answered.
What I'd like to do now is dive into the latest teaser image and see what may be included in the initial roll-out for this faction.

A long time ago, in a galaxy far, far away…
Well okay, maybe not that long ago, but it certainly feels like it! Games Day 2006, to be exact. This was my first ever official tournament, and I wanted to really push the envelope. It took me about 6 months, but I ended up creating a Black Templar force that I christened the "Penitent Crusade".
This was my first real foray into converting and sculpting, and I dove in head-first.
