This past weekend I finished up the last few models for two Infinity ITS tournaments I am playing in at Adepticon. I have only played a total of two games of Infinity since an ITS event last November so I am worried about being rusty. Fortunately the first tournament is a manageable 200 point Spec Ops format so the model count is lower. The bigger tournament is on Friday with 400 point lists. The last Michigan GT tournament was at 400 points so at least I won't be going in completely unprepared.
I am playing vanilla ALEPH for both events. I found that I can get cheaper specialists for objective scoring this way. Specifically, I can bring various combinations of Post-Humans proxies which got a nice boost after the release of the Human Sphere book.

While I am not playing the Sectorial army I am still using a couple of Myrmidons in my vanilla list. The chain rifle Myrmidon has been great throwing smoke grenades to combine with models that have Multi-spectral visors to restrict enemy AROs. The Myrmidon officer is the only ALEPH model with Chain of Command which is helpful for reducing the penalty for loss of Lieutenant. Much like the Post Humans, it is nice to have the WYSIWYG versions of these models painted up now.
|Spotbot and Atalanta|
After much consideration I decided to NOT bring one of my favorite models, Penthesilea (aka Penny). She is one of my favorite models that I have painted but I have never gotten her to survive long enough to get into close combat. Adepticon probably has better LoS blocking terrain that I am used to but I decided to switch out Penny for her super sniper sister Atalanta. The points are about equal for both of them so I am interested to see how this works out.
I have all the models painted and ready to go on the display board I made for the MIGT. I hope to have some pics from the events and do a wrap up after Adepticon. Thanks for reading!
