Getting people into Infinity, and other games + we have a comic store in town!

I have been very remiss in getting activity about the club posted so rather than waffle on I will let the heading an pictures do the talking. Games from January at both the clubs usual venue and a ripper new comic shop in town known as Kapow Collectibles. I wish the owners great success and see that they now run board games on a Wednesday night and MTG (Magic.....) on Friday nights. I was also really pleased that they gave us, as a club, a bit of a run using the premises to host a mini introduction to Infinity. Most of the players ended up being club regulars but two new people turned up just for the day. Was a lot of fun.
Brendan's board is getting better all the time.

My Iguana protecting the Chimera and Pupniks, that I am still not sure how to use.

X-Wing, gotta play this more .....

40K yep up and running again

My Spectre is about to see a hot flash of flame that will snuff him out.

End of January I was able to introduce two players to Infinity, they loved it and we had time for two games, one game each for a win.

Imperial Guard

Tau and Space marines boo hiss

Wings of Glory made a usual appearance.

A Seraph heading towards table top standard  I am looking forward to seeing our club member finish this but  I am sure I will be on the receiving end of it.

Introducing Infinity At Kapow Collectibles.

10 people all up and a couple of Magic the Gathering players mooching in the corner. We could not convince them to turn to the dark side and play with toy soldiers.

Lad on the left had heard of 40K but did not really play much.

On a small table we only played at 150-165 points enough for 2-3 games in an afternoon.

You really have to get down low to see if you can see the enemy in this game.

Most of the terrain was from the cardboard sets that are purposed built for infinity. The addition of one or two other bits and bobs fleshed the tables out.

Infinity is great for stretching the imagination

I actually got to play this one.

Brendan's big board as a display piece that was finally used in the last game of the day.

Note the Kapow Logo.....clever chap is out Brendan

One of my favourite minis in the game, the one in the center is a hard core human sized android smack out of movies like I Robot, in the game it is armed to the teeth has good armour and the equivalent of two wounds. What is not to like.

I hope to see more of Infinity at the Club but I sill miss playing WWII. We just don't have the interest. I think I need to sort out some solo rules or at least a system to use the rules I have in a solo capacity. So much money spent on WWII toys and they gather dust.
