I still can’t believe that tournament report took so long to write up. I’m going to keep this post much shorter.
My Cateran is among the first Infinity models I ever purchased, and I never intended for him to go so long without paint. I think it’s a fantastic miniature, but I always found myself leaving it as I painted other units (usually units with a lot less ‘base’ going on). I’m finally buckling down and making him happen though.
I will definitely be doing some washes and such yet, but for now I’m just happy that I’ve finally done much…
… and that i didn’t completely ruin the tartan, grin.
Did some more Ariadna assembly the last couple evenings, including a highlander cateran that arrived this evening.
I opted to use only 1 wall piece, in order to keep it on a 25mm base. The wall hangs off the base a fair bit, but I think it’s within reason. A fair compromise between the regulation 25mm base and the much more display-oriented 40mm layout.
Looks like we’ll be trying a 150pt skirmish on Sunday, so I’ve been bouncing a variety of list options around. With the arrival of my cateran and the confirmation that my Haqqislam opponent (this will be a multiplayer skirmish, but he’s likely to be 30-50% of my opposition) will be fielding a fairly elite 4-model force, I’m not going to worry about putting too few units on the board and we’ll be fielding a fairly small list myself:
mirage team 5,
the cateran t2 sniper,
a 112th emergency services doctor,
and a kazak lieutenant.
We’ll see how they do. This could be a disaster… I also finished building my t2 mormaer, and a second Caledonian volunteer, but I seem to have misplaced the photo I took of them. The mormaer is visible in the background of the alpha force image.
