Club Night – Crit to the face!

Date: 26/7/16

Game: Infinity
Opponent: Liam (Qapu Khalqi)
Mission: Highly Classified
Size: 200pts
Outcome: Victory

Jumping back into Infinity after spending some time enjoying the new Warmachine was going to be fun, and as it was a non-league game I decided to enjoy the new and improved Posthuman Proxy / Ghost: Jumper rules with my Aleph. We settled on a 200pt game as I was a little strapped for time, and this was Liam’s first game of Infinity ni a few months (and indeed his first post-HSN3 game to boot!).

I didn’t make a note of Liam’s list, but mine was:

Open in Infinity Army

Liam won the roll-off and chose first turn. I chose deployment sides and for Liam to deploy first.

This is where it went a bit funny… Everything Liam did, failed. He advanced his Haris fireteam (my right flank), and with both of us rolling straight dice aiming for 13s, my B1 HRL from the Proxy Mk4 beat out his B45 Spitfire. He made the save on the guy hit, but the blast took out another member of the Haris, dropping it to 2 members.

He advanced his Core fireteam and again my B1 HRL won the face to face (crit I think?) taking out the fireteam leader.

He advanced his infiltrating camoflage token, and my camoflage token held it’s ARO. The second skill was place D-Charge (for the classified), and as this revealed him, my Naga Killer Hacker Skullbustered him with a crit.

He shot again with the Haris fireteam, now B4 against my HRL, scored 3 hits, but only one converted to a wound. Rinsing and repeating my HRL crits and takes out the Haris fireteam leader.

By this point Liam was on full tilt, and took me up on an offer of starting over as his force was around 50% losses and his first turn was not over yet. I had mentioned to him about using Cautious Move earlier in the game as the field of view of the Proxy Mk4 was not as bad as it seemed. But I think that when I did, Liam was already feeling that the game was lost and not really trying anymore.

Result: Victory

We did not end up playing again though as I gave the game to someone else to take over so that they could play, and as mentioned earlier – I was short on time this night.
