Infinity: Ariadna Mavericks 9th Motorized Recon Battallion

Recommended Posts

SKU: CVB280183

 

First time attempting to paint glass and I think it came out . . . okish. Not great, but not bad for a first effort. Need to work on the blending, but have gotten some tips to help with that. 

 

As always C&C are most welcomed as I am always looking for ways to improve on my skills since currently about the best I can hope for is table top quality (and I even occasionally succeed ;P)

Thanks for looking!

I think the glass looks pretty good!  I wouldn't even know where to begin!

 

Fantastic work!

 

Thanks, I appreciate it!

 

As for the glass, I based it off this vid: Ghool's World


I've found his videos to be really helpful. Just for reference, the "glare" in the top left is largely by painting technique, the "glare" on the right is actual glare from the light reflecting off a gloss sealant. My light source for painting purposes was coming from the opposite direction of the actual light source when I took the photo. Might have to take a look at it when I reverse the fig to see how that looks. :p

Nice piece. Is it for play or display? 

 

Play. Part of the reason why I usually aim for table top quality (as that's about my max level at this point) but slowly improving I think. Just starting with Infinity though, so plenty more down the line I hope.

I think you did a pretty good job on the windscreens; keep it up!:winkthumbs:

 

Thanks! Definitely glad I attempted it. Very slowly getting over my fear of trying new stuff. :p

Absolutely try new stuff. That's the best way to figure out a technique you've heard about... or just find your own way to do a thing. The windscreen has a cool sunset reflection effect on it by my eye, and looks pretty great. A quick thing to add to make the rest of the bike pop more, if you'd like, would be some deep shades in some recesses, when I was helping a friend with this box set I used some blue and brown ink to add a deeper green between the parts that added some nice dimensions and separation to the bike. Also, nice job on the goggle lenses!

A good Tabletop job, the sunscreen is above that.

Nice base as well!

 

Overall a good job!

You can easily be proud of it.

 

If you like to add a little more realism, apply a little of the sandcolour to the tires.

He has been riding through the desert with clean tires now, do this and it will look even better.

Also in the same boat...dirty up the exhaust pipe and the metals.

 Thanks for the suggestions! I think I definitely tend not to go far enough with my shades and highlights, and the idea of the inks is a great one! Will definitely look into to doing that!

 

Dirtying up the tires is a great idea! I had considered it initially but then wasn't sure how I was going to do the base. So going back and adding in some dirt is a great idea. May have to work on the color a bit since the base was done with one of GWs tech paints, not sure they'd work for the tires and stuff tho. 

 

But seriously, thanks for the suggestions, these are really going to help, can't wait to try them out!

      Hi everyone!  As some of you know from watching my progress over in the WIP section of the forums, I've been busily working away on Cordelia!  This super cute and characterful little mini was an absolute blast to paint, and I appreciated everyone's advice and encouragement!
       
      So, without further ado, here's my cyberpunk version of Cordelia, now to be known as Synth-ia!
       



       
      Once again, thank you so much to everyone who followed along at home!!!

      My next project, also for my current Pathfinder game. This one looks like a real fun model and am looking to improve my layering technique as there are some nice areas on him to practice that.
       
      As always, any suggestions along the way are most welcome.  Here is in his primed glory. Hoping to get a decent amount of work on the skin done today, looking forward to doing some fun stuff with the eye as well, but waiting on some supplies (read paint) to come in first.
       
      Oh and I totally forgot about doing a WIP of the base, but there ya go. At least there will be some stuff likely added at the end. :)
       

       
      Thanks for looking!

      My latest completion. Although Gunnbjorn is a warlock for the Hordes table top game, I'm actually going to be using him in my current Pathfinder game as a replacement for the upcoming big bad. As always any C&C are most welcome, especially tips for improvement. I also apologize for the photo quality, still trying to figure things out with the new camera phone -- and I wasn't particularly technologically inclined to begin with.   Also I know I should have done more with his assorted bags, but frankly, was starting to get a bit "done" with him. Perhaps I will go back later and add to them.

      Hi all!  So, I keep putting off and putting off posting with as busy as I've been lately, but I really want to get back to using the forums more.  Therefore, here's my newest project!
       
      She's just for fun with no real competitions or games planned for her, but I've loved this rather simple Infinity sculpt for quite a while and finally wanted to get some paint on her!
       
      Also, her base is made of of plasticard and window screen, if anyone is wondering.

      Hi guys,
       
      So I got a greater number of Infinity Aleph minis from a guy who doesn't find them fit to his playstyle.
       
      Anyway - I decided to create my own bases, opposite to the clean and attractive style of the Aleph minis using some kind of a long lost and ruined city.
       
      Like this:
       

       
      I also got Atalanta and her SpotBot and I think that this spotbot has quite a personality and I want to create his base accordingly.
       
      (Picture for reference)
       

       
      So I thought that it would be fitting to have some kind of robot head or so he could stare at. (Like to 2b in the picture below - but being a mechanical rabbit with sad eyes).
       

       
      So I thought about using a space marine head but I don't find it fitting to the whole setting and it would just disappear between the rubble and the debris I prepared for the base. And it wouldn't match the style of Infinity.
       
      On the other hand - I tried using a bandai mecha/gundam head and it is way too big for a 25mm base. Does anyone have an idea which could help me solve the problem?
