Painting Tute 2 OSL

I am working on my second remote and thought I would explain as to how I paint the coloured lighting on my miniatures. When there is a element on a miniature that is supposed to illuminate light, we want to emphasis that light source with contrasts of shadow and highlights in the areas where the light would fall or beam too.

Paradiso Mission101 Battle Report

With the new book release we thought it would be the perfect time for our first battle report. So to this end we again drafted Yoshi in (mostly so we could shamelessly get pictures of his pretty minis and club's terrain), for a quick play through of the first mission. The Game was played between Josh(yoshi) using his Pan O, and Simon using Josh's Japanese Sectorial and the write up was done by Andrew  English Lewis. So a massive thanks to all those guys! - Noakes

Forward Observer Episode 6

 Episode 6 ! In this episode we talk about the new release models for October, including the fantastic new box set for Aleph, the amazing new crusader brethren and the surprise stand out (crazy good value wise) the batroid! We then talk tactics - Hacking and give an in depth review on all the tomfoolery and shenanigans you can get up to on the table when you decide to give hacking a go. Then in our new segment "back to basics" we go over close combat, an often overlooked and sometimes confusing aspect of the game. Finally in our faction focus we review Combined Army, and give a 200 point starter list, and a 300 point list that has all the tricks!

Guest Painting Tutorial - 1 Shading

   So painting is a pretty massive part of this hobby everyone would agree, but you cant really talk shop in regards to painting on a podcast. It just doesn't work without the visual aspect for obvious reasons (other podcasts have tried and failed however). But because we didn't want to ignore what is a pretty fundamental aspect of Infinity we decided to put painting articles up here independent from the podcast episodes themselves. Secondly, because any tips we could give would be mediocre at best we drafted in one of Australia's best painters Yoshi to do the guest articles.  
   You can find his work over at So go check it out! (incidentally he's also the guy who painted the Achilles for our competition prize, so you should all get onto that as well)

Episode 5 ! In this episode we talk about the new rules release in preparation for the Paradiso campaign book, more specifically some funny uses for jammers and  how amazing the new E-Marats are! Then we go in depth on Airborne Deployment in all its flavours in our tactics focus. In our faction highlight we finally talk about the best faction there is (in Noakes' opinion) Yu Jing. And finally we announce a contest that can score you a painted (not by us, by someone who can paint!) Achilles! just in time for the new Greek sectorial!.
