For some time, Sydney has had an annual wargaming convention held out in the Shire called MOAB, or the “Mother of All Battles”. And for the first time I actually went to it!

The main floor, you've got shops, demo tables and gaming tables!

MOAB has been on my radar for a little over a year now, and each year it runs there are multiple tournaments, including historicals, 40K, Warhammer and Infinity! Since a large number of the S.I.T.H mob were heading out to compete I thought I would pop by and check out the tournament in support of our club.

Downstairs we had one of the...5...tournament rooms, here with Infinity!!!

Zoran, a nice guy, was the TO and had 5 really nice tables set up, 4 being with their club terrain and one being donated for the day by “Make My Model” and “Adpaint” (also run by two good friends of mine), and holy crap did the tables look good!

This table!!! by Make My Model and Adpaint!

One thing I noticed was how open they were, which is rather funny considering the club has issues with my more Euro style tables!

I also snapped a few pictures of some demo games being run.

Deadzone...wish I had learnt how to play!!!

Relic Knights

All Quiet on the Martian front...10mm WWI sci fi wargaming

Deadman's Hand...I did notice recently I had a bit of a western bug bitting...

I managed to snap up a few items too; a Yu Jing, ISS and Mercs velcro badges and a Relic Knights Pacer because I thought it would go well with my Last Saga Mercs.



Infinity Terrain for the FLGS 5

The end of the Spartan Scenics?!

Hahahaha all the MDF terrain!!!

We finally, and this time as a club, got together and built the rest of the Spartan Scenics terrain from the core kit, as you can see from the pictures above! The most interesting add on are these two funny room structures.

A very unusual shape
What’s strange about it, much like the large room, is this strange angled part that I didn’t realise what was for until we built it. It also can have the acrylic computer screen in it, but we’ve left that out for painting.

OMG it allows a straight corridor, hex room and these funny rooms to fit in nicely together!

However putting the roofs on I’ve realised the folly of my ways by gluing every third railing in place for the hex roofs; derp!

That aside I build a sample structure of what the whole unit looks like together to try and maximise space taken up…

…so that’s about a 4 foot across, so not bad! Only issue is that we need to get some extra doors for it.

...so I got more of those doors and bulkheads…



JSA Keisotsu Hacker Conversion

As I mentioned previously, the JSA Keisotsu profile has some load outs that lack models, predominantly which are the specalists; the forward observer, paramedic and hacker. I’ve built the first two in that list, and with N3 making hacking a viable option for JSA, and important for TAG and HI protection, I decided to make one! Also the Keisotsu profile is the only one with the hacking device, giving that protection to HI, TAGs, REMs and counters to AD troops and guided munitions.

The goal was to make something similar to the Zhanshi hacker, as they are both Yu Jing military, and to also make the specialist visibly unique compared to the other Keisotsus.

So visor, spike thingy on back...hmmm

So I started off with the female Keisotsu and the Yu Jing Zhanshi Gong Cheng (Mech-engineer)…

A popular sculpt I've noticed due to similarites with the Major from GiTS
 Using a Jeweller’s saw I cut off their heads…
And this got real morbid real quickly
I filled the neck and gun down due to issues with removing the head…

I stuck said head on with a bit of an angle and stuck a spare antenna bit off the Yaokong remotes box to represent the hacking device.

 And BAM hacker!!!

And now she needs some paint!!!
