Thats a Cutter Tag for the Pan O invisible giant killer death robot for the win. A pair of Ghecko’s mini tags, an Alguacilies with an HMG and a Daktaris cat girl medic for the Nomads.

These purchases take both the Ice Storm sets up to 300 points


This is the cutter i think that baggy of bits is full of things that will be lost soon.

DC’s Continuing Adventures in Photography and Poorly Supported Technology

So i was pondering my photos issue and i suddenly had a bright (typically it turned out not to be)idea the camera on my current phone is pretty shit but the camera on my old Windows phone wasn’t that bad. The phone itself is one of the most irritating pieces of technology this particular rampant technophobe has ever encountered :.

So i took a few pics nothing great but defo getting better so how to get the pictures out of the phone and into the Blackberry Tablet. Now i tried shaking it really hard over a funnel with the spout in a hole on the side of the tablet but unbelievable as this sounds it didn’t work.

At this point I was mightily discouraged i went and smoked quite a lot of a medicinal herbal remedy known to have profound effects on short term memory(cant remember what effect but thats a problem for tomorrow)when i came incredibly close to having a bright idea so close an estate agent might describe it as bright idea adjacent.

Mobile devices have this thing to connect them together its even got a snappy name Green fang, no Red Nail, close arghh thats it blue tooth so carefull not get bitten i explored the pair of troublesome widgets for a blue tooth button almost miraculously i located both buttons there were codes and detectings going on left right and centre but then the legend and true portent of doom appeared devices not compatible.

Undetered by this temporary set back i regrouped by which i mean i smoked some more herbal remedy and had a good hard….something! whats the word where you use your brain in an attempt to come up with a solution Think thats it i had a good hard think how do you get photos off a phone.

All of a sudden a new devious plan began to form in my little mind. I had heard tell of a bucket on the interwebz where you could upload and store your pictures it had a catchy name inspiration struck again photo bucket thats it. a quick google search later and we were setting up an account heady stuff.

This was achieved with very little swearing and almost no stamping of the feet although i don’t understand how my password isn’t strong enough but we had a 1 to the end of it and thats alright. So shiny new account created we log into find a new harbinger of Doom browser not supported install one of these i followed the the links (all of them) to be met once again by arch nemesis Device not supported so thats the Photo bucket plan scuppered.

Time once again for a rethink this time i called out the big guns and asked Dr Google that wise oracle that hides in the back of pooters careful to specify windows phone i was directed to one drive so i checked it out and created an account see above for details of account creating it was very similar.

So new account created i logged in to a page of gibberish randomly pushing things that might be buttons i finally got to a screen with some english on it and was informed to upload from my device i required an app click this link duly clicked i had to create a windows live account i did this then downloaded the app at which point i had to create a new account my other one being irretrievably corrupted (sounds nasty)

but finally i was able to upload some pictures and down load them to my tablet i almost cried but managed to control it to litle more than a manly sob.

here are the results

Life Can Catch You by Surprise

Just a quick post sorry it’s been so thin on content but I have just seperated from my partner of twelve years.

That’s right She Who Must Be Obeyed no longer has to be obeyed. I’m not looking for any sympathy it was a long time coming and was very ammacible. It is very sad as a family of 12 years is no more and i worry about how its gonna effect my step son.

However we got together today and painted most of the afternoon made some headway on the Infinity Operation Ice Storm minis he seems fine but i wonder how much is a front.

I am feeling quite positive should have more hobby time so I’m gonna try and gets some mini pics up (don’t get your expectations too high I’m a mediocre painter whos badly out of practise) and I’m hoping that i can round my infinity collections out into 3 300 point armies with some judicious purchase. I’m also gonna try and do some Bat reps and then hopefully some more experienced infinity players can let us know what I’m doing wrong

USArIadnans Army pack for Infinity

firstly apologies for the lack of recent content been suffering from a lack of both inspiration and motivation also have actually been playing more having encountered a number of other gamers who have started working on my site so been a table top warrior rather than a keyboard one🙂

So Corvus Belli just put there new army pack for USariandnan’s up for pre order looks like you get most of the same things as operation Ice Storm but with a single more fleshed out army. My hope is that they do many more of these with a bit of hard wishing one for each faction as it will really help with the pimpin showed this to two fellow gamers who are now chompin at the bit to start infinity🙂 here’s a bunch of obligatory pics


Lovely sculpts mostly however I’m not keen on the posing of the far right werewolf and the motorbikes wheels look a bit small gives it more of a moped look like she’s delivering pizza rather than fighting a future war.


Looks like phenomenal value at €90 pre order should be £60 or less by the time it gets to the UK

So what do you think anyone tempted to jump into infinity who hasn’t already by this
