Review: Swift Brush Studios

I won the $50 GC from the Baltimore Brawl and decided to use it to get my Cutter painted.  I love to paint but figured PanO was just going to be for my Step-Brother to use.  I dropped it off about a month ago and last weekend he sent me photos of the completed product.



This is the highest level he offers and I think he did a bang up job and looks very close to the pic he sent as a sample for the colors.

My problem now is I have to paint the rest of the guys to look like him.  Todd actually asked if I was going to have him paint the rest.  I told him I have thought about it and will consider it as I put everything together for this army.

UPDATE: Here is the link to the studio.

Infinity: 300 (non-ITS) at Titan Games


Titan is having their second event for Infinity this time is a 300 point non-ITS event.  Mission scenarios are Annihilation,  Supremacy and The Armory.  I brought two fun lists for the event since it's not an ITS event and the missions are pretty straight forward.  There are a lot of new people playing at Titan so I thought hard about what lists I was going to play.

I took two lists (I think these are close since I don't have my iPad with me):
List 1 (Used in Annihilation and The Armory)
AVATAR Lieutenant 3.5 137
IMETRON 0 4
IMETRON 0 4
MORAT Hacker 0.5 22
MORAT FO 0 15
FRAACTA Hacker 0.5 35
MED-TECH OBSIDON MEDCHANOID 0 23
SLAVE DRONE 0 3
SPECULO KILLER BS 1 34
IKADRON 0 9
 IKADRON 0 9
 Gaki 0 4

List 2 - (I think this was it)

CHARONTID Lieutenant 0 78
UMBRA LEGATE Hacker 0.5 43
UNIDRON Sniper 1.5 24
MED-TECH OBSIDON MEDCHANOID 0 23
FRAACTA Hacker 0.5 35
UNIDRON FO 0 15
SLAVE DRONE 0 3
IMETRON 0 4
IMETRON 0 4
NOCTIFER ML 1.5 32
Q-DRONE Plasma 1 25
DATURAZI Chain 0 14

Round 1 - Annihilation versus Nomads - Win 10-0
I go first and keep the Avatar and Killer in reserve.  One Imetron goes off the board and he shot the Gaki.  First order is to move the Killer into CC with the Gecko while saving a flamer shot and another order to actually have him fail his save.  Avatar moves up and loses ODD to a flamer but make a friend.  I proceed to make lots of friends.

Round 2- Supremacy versus Ariadna - Loss 0-10
I lose WIP roll but my opponent chooses deployment and takes the more advantageous position.  I go first.  Charontid moves up and reveals two markers and takes a flamer to the face.  I fail my saves with a 1, 1, 5.  The game would play out with me failing almost all saves.

Round 3 - The Armory versus PanO NeoTerra- Win 8-2
I lose initiative and my opponent chooses first turn.  I pick the side and let him deploy first.  He lines up his link team and I put my Killer there.  She ARO's his first move and doesn't kill a single model and fails all three saves.  He uses a specialist to open the doors and lines up three of his 5 man team in front of the door closest to me.  Avatar takes out his missile launcher and then proceeds to sepsitorize the tree in a line.  They kill one of the link team members and Avatar kills the other.  The game basically had me controlling the center easily in rounds 1 and 2.  Round three I had to run a Ikadron into the room.
