OSS Lists & Report - 3/56 at UK Satellite

Yes, it's a blog post!

I shook off the cobwebs last weekend, having not played Infinity since the Interplanetary, and headed to Cardiff to try out some OSS for the first time. Unfortunately I was pipped to the post on objective points but I'm still super happy with the outcome. For the record, another OSS player (Vohlere) came first with great tiebreakers, but I don't know what his lists were and Corregidor arrived in second place (grrr Nomads etc.)

I didn't want to try out too many of the recent releases as I'd never played a season 10 tournament before and was pretty behind on what the new kit did. Plus I don't have many of the newer models anyway so I used the lists below.

Interplanetary 2018 Table Dump

This year's Interplanetary was bigger than ever with an incredible 140 players duking it out across 70 tables.

Many tables returned from last year, albeit in different configurations and many were completely new too. 

Again, many of the tables had table-wide scenery special rules including poor visibility (sandstorm or blizzard) or had other specific terrain rules which had to be adhered to, although there was no table-wide saturation this year. I've put a photo of the terrain rules which applied after each table if applicable. 

Below are two pictures of each table used at the event presented in numerical order. Mobile users beware!

Interplanetary Round Table 2018

Last weekend I travelled to the Interplanetary and took the chance to attend the various seminars as well as the main tournament which I'll be writing up over the next couple of weeks.

Once again we started with the 'round table' - and unlike last year at least there was a table even if it wasn't actually round - which was a mini Q&A session taking pre-selected questions from social media and ad-hoc ones from the crowd. This year there were many shorter questions and answers compared to last.

I've tried to write them up as accurately as possible, but beware that these are transcribed from brief notes so there will be embellishment and paraphrasing to help with readability and conciseness. Any inaccuracies are entirely my own, although they do admit to misleading people quite a lot...

Our hosts this year were Bostria, Gutier and Alberto.

Bring out your Lead - Friday 2018

This year I had the opportunity to play a bit of a special game, not just because it was at my first BOYL since 2014 but because I travelled up with my Dad, against whom I haven't played Warhammer in the better part of 15 years despite us both painting a significant amount of models in the interim!

Our game wasn't planned out particularly well - we did rather just throw down whatever we had, but it was a cracking day and we managed to wrap it up in a single day!

Heavy Support for the Lizardmen

Just a quick update today to show what I've been adding to my Lizardmen lately. Having finished up a couple of chunky blocks of saurus warriors, I thought it was time to turn to something a bit meatier.

A Year in the Human Sphere

The Human-Sphere wiki is officially a full year old! Can you believe it's been that long already?

I thought this might be a good opportunity to update people on how the site is doing, whether I've met my goals from one month in and what the plans for the future might be.

Coatl Got Your Tongue?

Is it a bird? Is it a plane? No, it's a .... snake?

This Coatl has been sitting in the pile for a long time as I've been unsure of what scheme I wanted to use on it. But after seeing a beautifully painted example of this mini by Andrew 'Frogg' on the Codex Slann group I knew I had to steal his idea!
