INTERPLANETARY:

What is the Interplanetary?

The Interplanetary is the most prominent event for Infinity.

A place to enjoy the hobby and the passion for miniatures with other people. You can participate in an international grand tournament and prove your leadership skills; you can spend a good time and enjoy with the brushes on our fast painting contest or join this year on our first WarCrow, the big Infinity painting contest.

You can meet Corvus Belli staff, join roundtable conferences, and assist to informative talks or simply geek out with other wargame fans.

If you want we can teach you top lay Infinity, discover new ways of using your minis (like Deathmatch), or even discover the techniques of Ángel Giráldez himself. This is the place to enjoy every aspect of the hobby.

In a nutshell the Interplanetary is three days filled with activities for the players and the non-players; but the people that you will find is what really turn this event into a perfect weekend.
