Infinity: Joan of Arc

Recommended Posts

This is another that I hope to get done by the end of the month but I am not sure if I will be able to as it will be the first time that I have done NMM for a competition. While I play Infinity, PanOceania is not one of the factions I use so I got Joan specifically for use as a display piece. The color scheme was an easy choice but I am doing a variant on the normal one. She usually is painted with blue armor, red cloth, and blonde hair. I decided to mix it up and will be going with white armor, blue cloth, and red hair.

 

Here she is primed:

The base was the hardest decision as I have not done many Sci-Fi bases and at first I was not sure what I wanted to do. Then I remembered Massive Voodoo's Insta-Bases that Secret Weapon produces and my mind latched on to one of the industrial ruin ones.

Been working on her armor and base. It has been going better and quicker than I thought and I am feeling more confident I can get the armor done to my satisfaction by Saturday. Though the armor is leaning more towards a ceramic/enamel type armor than metallic but I am liking the look. Any feedback would be appreciated.

I cannot believe I did it. I set myself the goal to finish her armor today as I knew that it would take the most time and the other stuff can be done fairly quickly. Well I finished it! Now hopefully I can finish everything else tomorrow. Luckily I am only working half a day so that gives me a few more hours.

 

Any feedback would be appreciated.

This is the limited edition mini that came with Angel girardez' Masterclass book, right?

 

Great start. I'll be following it in the hope of picking up a few tips before I release mine from its blistery prison.

Yes, she is that one. Not sure how helpful this will be as I will be painting fairly quickly and hopefully finishing today. If you have any questions about something I did, feel free to ask.

Armor is done except for the lights and "buttons". Base is mostly done as well and I have started the cloth. Left to do is the sword and other "metallic" areas, her skin, and her hair.

Nice free hand symbol you have there.

 

Liking your paint scheme here as well.

 

I think this is easily the best of the three Joan sculpts.

Thanks, I kept flip flopping between doing the tradition cross and the PanO symbol and decided to go with the symbol as I felt it fit better. Yeah, it is an ambitious color scheme and I am happy with how it turned out. I did not know there are three sculpt, thought there were only two. I agree though, this is the best, the others seem awkward to me.

First NMM sword done and I am ok with it. More irritated about the engraving as it was not very well defined but I tried my best and it does look better in person.

Nice, but...

 

This is 'machine fabricated' armor. I would have used(or tried to use) masking tape here and there to get perfectly straight edges where there are gaps between panels.

Do you mean the areas that are black lined? For those I just painted the gaps that are part of the sculpt.

Yeah, the dark-coloured areas. Mostly the narrow stripes on her feet. 

They're kind of like the panel gaps on cars, really. Elfed difficult to get right and way too visible if they're not 100% correct. 

 

I once made the 'Robotica' model over on Thingiverse, and if there's one thing I would have done differently if I had thought about it, it would have been the gaps.

Don't ask how long it took to paint it...

      Every now and then I've seen people start up a WIP thread that's more or less along the lines of "clean the shelf of (blank)".  For me, it's of hopes and dreams, of projects started, but not quite realized, finished, or...  Even painted.  This isn't necessarily going to be one of those more serious minivember, one mini a day, or even a burn towards the finish line to actually "complete" the one a week RPChallenge, uh, challenge.  That and while I'd love to do minivember or even 99 minis in 99 days both of those seem a tad too... Intense for me.  Especially with how often I get distracted from such with playing computer games, longer days at work, or even starting to have a social life!  (Yeah, some of the Infinity gamers in town are starting to slowly coax me into coming out to play and do things, it's kind of nice!)
       
      To meet my own goal this year of beating 2018's count, I'd need another "14 points".  Coincidentally, that's fairly close to the mark of 18 for October through December, so I figure why not!  ...I guess I am going for the RPChallenge bit after all, but I'm going to give a whirl at a full twenty, because I like that number more than 14 or 18! 
       
      In short, my goal is to try and clear some of the assembled and primed backlog I have, and focus on mainly getting those painted up and FINISHED.  Naturally I'm not going to lock out the prospect of adding in a few more minis to the table (I am more than likely going to be building up a tournament HaqqIslam force for February 2020, which will require more units to be acquired, assembled, and painted), but as for some of the things that come to mind for being taken care of...
      Getting Wyrmgear's mods sculpted - I really would like to see him at least standing up at the end of the year Additional work on my Rainbow Dragon Challenge Ebonwrath - he's taking up a decent amount of space on my desk, plus, hey, DRAGON! Infinity Red Veil, and Beyond Red Veil boxed set - at least the HaqqIslam portion, anyways, although I'd like to at least get the Yu Jing assembled and based too Various CAVs in various states Other, smaller dragons! (Pathfinder Red Dragon, Temple Dragon, and I think I have a Narthrax hiding around somewhere too) minotaurs, gnolls, and some Skaven character/heroes A few minis that have become "paint catchers" for when I mix up too much  
      There's probably more, but still.  I'm not going to keep a full on tally of things, but either way, I'm hoping to work on, and finish, at least 14 "points" worth of minis, but 18 "points" would be awesome... Or even more.  Apparently, as of this post, there are ten weeks and four days until the end of 2019.
       
      What am I mostly aiming for by doing this thread?  Well, by having a WIP I'm regularly updating, I'm hoping to not only get more work done close to every day on miniatures (even if it's just twenty minutes), but also get back into the habit of sitting down and hobbying every day.  I really do like how relaxed I am when doing it, and it helps me cool and calm down too.  That and, oh yeah, I already mentioned the habit thing.
       
      Anyways, I did mention something else in the beginning of all of this about something silly, well...  Let's put it this way....

      ^I was okay with some of them trying to teach others how to "roll over" and "play dead", even if it meant my Switch is a little harder to get to....
      I was even okay with some of them guarding one of my spare graphics cards, and the Mission Models iridescent and pearl paints...

      ^Yup, even didn't really mind them taking over a shelf in my cube shelf (there are more minis hiding in the ice cream pail, they're in there due to having been washed) - Actually, this helped kickstart me being able to paint again, since ALL of those were on my desk before tidying up...
       
      But once you try and hold my benching rig hostage....  Or you try to do dark rituals around my turntables...  Oh no, this needs to be stopped.  if I let them continuing running amok, they'll try and take over the entire living room!  (there were additional pics, but it kind of felt like things were dragging on).
       

      ^So...  Here's how my desk looked last time I tidied it up.  It looks a little different, and somewhat messier now, but that's because I have a few projects on the go that I was working on before this post.  Not all of the minis in that picture are mine (the Pathfinder Red Dragon belongs to hubby, for example) but still.  There's a decent amount of stuff on the table, to say the least.
       

      ^So here's where I left off two days ago - I apparently didn't take a picture of yesterday's table, but there were two more Haqq minis done, and I suspect that's also simply because we played Division 2 for like two hours yesterday, then I worked on minis, then I went to bed rather tired...
       

      ^And how things are looking so far today.  All seven minis from the Operation: Red Veil started set are now assembled (although they'll be an eighth one added in eventually due to having been sent a double by accident - Corvus was quick and prompt when replying on their mispack line... Err, email), and bases for the three miniatures from Beyond Operation: Red Veil are drying, so they'll be assembled tomorrow.  The reason why the seventh guy doesn't have anything extra on his base yet is quite simply because I'd assembled him tonight.  I'm not quite sure what kind of colours I'll be going with on my Haqq, but I strongly suspect they won't really be all that traditional, or at least studio paint jobs.  Totally lost on what colours I'll be going with for the Oathsworn Minotaur as well, but I'll worry about that when I get to that front - today's focus was assembly and basing.

      So finally got around to finishing up a project now that I am fully moved into the new home and work is settling down a bit. This is the first of two Desperadoes that come in the box. One cool thing about the Infinity line (imho) is that the two bikers are completely different, even the bikes are different. Just nice from a variety standpoint. These guys are described as bikers first, soldiers second, so I decided that even though he is technically military, that he would have a little bit of bling on his bike. This guy is my usual table-top quality as that's really about as good as it gets for me at this stage, but I am always looking for any comments, critiques, suggestions, etc. There are parts in a lot of my projects now where I feel the improvement and others that still show me my newbieness. The leather on the hat, coat and gloves was done using the Oiled Leather triad. I'm not a huge fan of the Burnt Orange for the highlight, but even though I had issues with the blending (a notable issue I have in general) I think it kinda/sorta worked here for the items. It just makes them look a bit rougher, which I think is ok, at least from a table top standpoint.
       
      Finally, based on a suggestion from my last bike that I did, I added some of the terrain color to some of the lower parts of the bike to show that he's been riding through the cracked earth desert for a while, etc. Please let me know your thoughts on this as this was kind of a blind experiment for me. Too much? Too little? Should I have simply glazed it on instead? As I said, I'm always looking for suggestions as I very, very slowly improve. :)
       

       

       

       

       
      As always, thanks for any and all comments, suggestions, critiques, etc.!

      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!!!
    • By Kuro Cleanbrush
      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?
