Jhokalups – Frontline Intel Report – 3

Jhokalups Frontline Intel Report – 3

This week was a holiday week for us, unfortunately the holiday in question fell on our regular game night. With it being a holiday weekend, many of our locals either had family in town our were out of town visiting family. For me it was family in town; my parents came our way for turkey day; which nixes any idea meeting someone on a different day for a “quick” game of Infinity.

It seems like I get an opportunity to write an Intel report every four games or so. I’ll look at making these a regularly scheduled thing. I like being able to take some time and reflect on my progress with the game.
with the game.

So far I have played 8 games, and have learned a lot with each one. Five of the games have been at the Recon+ size, and the other three were 300 point ITS X. I am still enjoying the game, and the challenging puzzle it presents. My biggest struggle is remembering all the options I have on my models. It will be worthwhile to develop a couple of lists and focus on those and the profiles inside. As opposed to what I have been doing, which is changing my lists for every game. I do have some favorite profiles; the Riot Grrl Spitfire, Pi-Well, and the Reverend Custodier HD+. The Spitfire on the Riot Grrl is a dominating force on the Recon+ battlefield, almost the whole field is in the +3 range band, and in that format, there are not a lot of anti heavy infantry options being brought. Pi-Well has proven himself to be an excellent quick gun fighter, and repeater, and a specialist; it seems like the little guy can do anything. Any failings that have happened while I was using him have been my fault for not knowing all his abilities. Finally the Reverend Custodier, this profile has been my Lieutenant the last few games and I am unlikely to change that. I am still learning about hacking options and solutions that having provides (my default behavior is to solve problems with more bullets). I enjoy having access to supportware, white noise, and an extra order for cybermask. These all make the Custodier an awesome choice to lead my forces.

I have been inspired by all the nice terrain options to make a table for travel and home. It’s an urban block setting, with modular buildings for apartments and shops. Eventually I would like to add garbage bins, cars, and little kiosk shops. So far I have the skeleton of three buildings done and a fourth one started. I still need to work on balconies and rooftop AC condensers. As well as paint them. Below is a picture from a recent game with the first floors.

Overall, I continue to enjoy the game. Infinity is a good strategically puzzle, and offers the challenge of list building. Over the next month I will work on expanding into 300 point lists with more than one order group. Thanks for reading, next week we will hopefully return to Frontline operation reports.
