I still want to finish up the Operation Red Veil final mission but I got an opportunity to throw down a full 300 point game this weekend and put together a quick report. Due to time constraints and my inexperience with the rules, we only got to play one full round but it was enough to see the game in more detail.

Gen Con events went live this weekend and things went pretty smooth on my end. It is usually a frustrating time as their site crumbles under the weight of thousands of gamers furiously refresh their screens trying to get events. Either the events I prefer these days aren’t popular or I got in early in the queue but there wasn’t really anything that sold out for me. Well except for my hosted events.
But I can’t count that as a bad thing.
After pushing through some of the base painting of Fat Yuan Yuan, I got back in the rhythm and was able finish his “attack” sculpt up. The sculpt really started to come together at the end when I started working on the wash and shading. I didn’t much to highlight things and the brush was a bit sloppier than I would have liked but he’s done and that is the most important part.
Since my friend and I are nearing the end of our Operation: Red Veil experience with Infinity, it was time to start looking at where to go next in Infinity. I already knew the first place I wanted to look was the model that single-handedly got me into the game, the Su Jian Immediate Action unit, “kitty” model.
I’m behind on my reports as I just finished up Mission 4 from Infinity’s Red Veil set but I was able to upload Mission 3. This time, we add some fun new rules with figures that have camouflage and jump capability. The objective is the same: kill ’em all so we kind of know what to expect.
After my color scheme was finalized, I got to work painting up the first few models and made some good progress. It took some time settling on a color to match what I produced on the screen but I got something that was close enough using Army Painter’s Lava Orange with a healthy does of GW’s Agrax Earthshade wash.
With my first intro game of Infinity under my belt, it was time to start painting up some minis but I really struggled to figure out my army colors. I’m playing Yu Jing but yellow just isn’t my color. Nothing wrong with it but it’s not a color I want to paint with all the time or play with. Red is usually my goto but Infinity has a major faction, the Nomads, that studio paint typically red. And my friend already has his Nomads red and I don’t want to confuse things.
Lucky for me, Corvus Belli released concept art of the figures in an easy illustrated style that I can quickly mess with in Photoshop to see what I like.
