Forward Observer Episode 3

 Episode 3 is out ! A week early no less! so that between us and the American Infinity Podcast you'll have a Podcast every week!

  This episode we take a brief look at the weapons sprue's that come with the Spec Ops figures. We then Focus on the new faction the Tohaa, take a look at their background, their miniatures and their playstyle. Then in our new tactics section we focus on snipers, how to use them and how to counter them.
   Then in the second half of the episode we get in resident terrain guru Colin to give us some tips and tricks on making terrain and hopefully saving some cash in the process. We use his latest project, an amazing Haqqislam table (pictured below) as our main example, so check out the pictures!  Finally we focus on Haqqislam in our faction focus, and talk about how to build a starter list to 200 points, then we take a look at a 300 point list that incorporates a lot of the Haqq strengths.

Forward Observer Episode 2

Episode 2 ! In this episode we discuss the August releases. We also discuss in some depth the Fan made mission systems of TAOS and YAMS, and how they can make your games much more tactical and enjoyable, as well as forcing you to change your list selection to a much more balanced list. Then in our faction review we discuss Ariadna! how to build from the starter box to 200 and 250 point sizes, and finally we discuss a 300 point list that takes all the strengths of the vanilla Ariadna and rolls them into 1 superagressive-cammo-superjumpy-autocannoning list of doom!

Forward Observer hits iTunes. (or how we made itunes our bitch)

Because we care, Forward Observer can now be found on iTunes. Now it's even easier to listen to your favourite infinity podcast while on the run, on your dull commute, maybe go wild and listen to it while playing a game.

Don't think that it's a replacement for this blog though. It will still be constantly updated, each episode will have show notes, links, and other non-aural information. Click these links if you missed episode zero or one's notes (they're also the posts RIGHT before this one...).

And that's not even getting into the non-podcast-y stuff that's on the horizon.

Remember you can contact us with any questions, feedback, suggestions, and the like that you have. We really appreciate it.

Last but not least, shoutout to Pete who has helped with the behind the scenes sorcerery.

Forward Obsever Episode 1

Woo! episode 1 ! In this episode we discuss the July infinity releases, and how overpowered I feel a certain one will be, we also discuss a couple of rules people always forget or get wrong. Then we go into an in depth faction review on the Nomads, where to look if you're just starting out, how to build and expand the force and finally how to build a Nomad list that will instantly lose you friends and make sure you never get a game again (unless you're Paul and still can't win a game).

The Intro to Infinity and us Episode

Well guys! It's finally here, the first Australian infinity podcast! This is our intro episode where we ramble on (and on) about who you're listening to and how we got into infinity. More importantly we also talk (in length ) about all the basics of the infinity background and gameplay, and what makes this the best game out there!
