Mini Deviations

I got a little sidetracked from my Infinity progress the past few weeks.  Work has started to pick up and after taking a short but very needed 'stay-cation' I now have a lot of catching up to do.  I might have to start working on weekends soon unfortunately.
I've been playing Batman: Arkham Asylum on the PS3 on and off for the past couple months.  During the vacation, I aimed to finish it.  Four straight hours and I was done.  I didn't think I was that close to finishing the game.  I was a little disappointed with the ending.  Without spoiling anything it wasn't what I expected, maybe even underwhelming.  I'll leave it at that.  Overall though a really great game and I can't wait to start the sequel, Arkham City.
As you know I've been slowly making a Koborlas (Lupines) army for Warlord.  Very low priority, jumping on it when I feel like it.  I was browsing the video game websites when I saw the image of Amaterasu from the Okami PS2 game.  I suddenly thought "Yes, Ameratsu would be a great looking spirit wolf for my Koborlas army!".
Okami WIP
Still not done.  I'm having trouble adding the tribal markings around the eyes and body.  I may be using the wrong brush size.  I'll try again soon.

I haven't neglected my Infinity either.  I've been playing a few games at the LGS and losing all, if not, most of the games.  Mainly due to my newbiness... and maybe a little bit of plain stupidity.  Okay maybe a lot of stupidity than I care to admit.  Learning the tactics of the game will come with experience- that's fine.  What I need to remember and seem to forget all the time are the freaking loadouts for each of my guys.  For example, I always use my Vet. Kazak's T2 rifle but I always forget that they are also equipped with light flamethrowers.  In fact, all Vet. Kazak loadouts are equipped with flamethrowers.  I also seem to forget that some of the guys I use also have smoke grenades.  Key stuff to remember when you are trying to avoid getting shot at.

Adepticon 2012 is less than a month away and I was hoping to get my army completely painted, at the very least tabletop ready.  Here's what I have currently...

Stuff that has paint
Stuff that needs paint
I still have a couple box sets that need assembling.  Not sure I'll make it in time.  Suck!

This weekend John, the dude who is setting up the Infinity tourney @ Adepticon will be showing off the terrain at the LGS and will be looking for feedback so I'll be checking that out.  Curious to see how it looks!  Hoping others will stop by and maybe play a game or 2 on the terrain.  :)
