Tank ran his Cephalyx Operating Theatre and I broke out Kreoss2 and the Exmplar Interdiction Force. It wasn't much of a force, with Bastions and Seneschals.

Also, finally, Zone Raiders! McBeth and Pelarel played a game and I rulebooked for quick reference. We replayed the scenario from the quick start, but with all the rules this time, on Pel's new terrain from local NZ makers, Titan Terrain. It's lovely, BTW. Modular, cleverly designed and entertainingly detailed too.

It was a good lesson in army construction, model building, as well as how a few of the rules interactions we didn't have in the quick-start missions, especially how the exposed and crossfire rules work together. We did a post-game review of sorts and picked up some of the things we chose not to do - like the asymmetric missions and AI-driven on-board enemies. I think this is going to be a really interesting game once we get really stuck into the details.
I'm keen to do a full-detail batrep of this sooner rather than later but we need to have a couple more learning games to get the rules down fully. I think I would say though that McBeth walked away with the comment "a much nicer game to play than Infinity" and I would absolutely concur with that opinion. It does make me want to pick up a few other Infinity models to complement my collection though.
A few other pics!
I've been meaning to chuck up a pic of Scotty's Imperial Fists. That yellow is amazing and the insane amount of work and skill that Scotty has put into painting them is evident.

I'll post a couple of painted minis I think. Amzaingly while I have hammered through the models over the last twelve months, I'm suddenly staring at a bunch of primed models with no real work started on them! I'm looking forward to actually getting paint on models for a change.
