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!

      So, a little over a year ago I got my paws on a decent amount of MDF terrain, specifically with the goal of using it to build up a nice Infinity board.  After narrowing it down, I wound up ordering some things from Warsenal as well as Global Evil Corp.  Warsenal was because I loved the look of their Cosmica Line, and Global Evil Corp because I absolutely love kerf cuts and the fact they utilized such to have ROUNDED CORNERS on buildings.  Oh yeah, and the sliding windows and doors gimmick was a pretty big draw too.
       
      Last month my goal was to get it all primed, because I was tired of the raw MDF, plus I wanted to use it as inspiration to keep moving on my Infinity miniatures...  This month I'm going to see what can be
       

      ^Let's just say there's a semi-reasonable amount of terrain involved....
       

      ^An okay amount for a diverse, two level 15 point (Code One) or 150 point (N4) field, although I could use a few more options...
       

      But definitely not much in the way of full on variety for a full on 30 point (Code One) or 300 point (N4) 4x4' table.
       


      ^Before I forget, this is what attaches on to that cube frame.  Looks so much nicer built up, even if I uh, haven't built the last panel yet due to lack of space on the desk.
       
      ~
      Anyways, they've been raw MDF for far too long in my opinion, so let's get things staged over by the airbrush....

      ^Mr Hobby Mr.Almighty clips are rather handy....
       

      ^And primed.  Yup, classic black primer with a white "zenithal" (for lack of better words) across things.
       


      ^After a few hours, we now have this.  Okay, stage is set, but it feels like something is missing....
       

      ^Aha, looking a lot better.  Initially I was going to try and go crazy on the colours for the exterior, but hubby and I just like the basic light kinda blue colour we've got going, so onwards to accents...
      (Colours used: Mission Models Blue, with a small amount of black added in, as well as a reasonable amount of white - goal was for a bit of a greyish blue, and while I didn't quite get it how I wanted, eh, close enough and we like it)
       


      ^Decided to show the roof progress a little more in depth here, partially because I remember @Kangaroorex inquiring about the opacity of those Wicked Colours Opaque colours.  The Dioxazine Purple I think was five drops of colour with two drops of Vallejo Thinner Medium, and on the right I had a moderately wet hybrid brush that was dipped into paint, and then traced along.  Not sure what happened on the right side, but somehow I managed to go almost all the way around without running out of paint, but I also wasn't able to repeat it, although it was only a few inches before it started becoming see through.  I'll still try to remember to do an actual test over white paper with print at some point.
       

      ^Now, as for those roofs...  Sure, I could mask things, or even create a airbrush template, and I might still, but at the same time...  The basic blocks have been laid down, with Wicked Opaque Pthalo Blue on the inner triangle like bits, Wicked Opaque Pyrrole Orange on the inner thin line, and Wicked Opaque Dioxazine Purple on the outer line.
       
      What's the current plan?  Well, naturally I'm going to get the basic colours laid down on the rest of the items, but I'm going to test out Pthalo Blue on a roof section to see what thoughts are.  Originally, the two lines that go around each building were going to be orange, but after a quick though they're going to be purple.  Warsenal stuff will see more oranges and reds, as well as purples to them, at least that's the current main plan ^_^;;;

      I found this guy sitting unassembled in a box while I was cleaning. So I built and painted him even though I stopped playing infinity years ago.

      So, a little while ago I had these two lovely packages come in because I wanted to give the new "rules condensed" version of Infinity a go, and sadly neither the HaqqIslam I use or the Ariadna hubby uses for N3 are in Code One, so....  Well, as one might expect, we wound up picking up a new starter box, because of various reasons.  Anyways, Yu Jing was always my second choice for an army, and Rune liked the new look for the PanOceania figures, so that made life moderately easier....
       
      Keen eyed observers will notice that Rune's PanO aren't getting as many units.  Well, yeah, there's a partial reason for that - I had a basic idea already of what I wanted with my Yu Jing for N3, specifically that of being able to field the Invincible Army sectorial at some point due to my LOVE of their heavy infantry, and since pretty much all of the models I was looking at are usable in Code One that pretty much sealed the deal for me right then and there...  Obviously more will be added in for Rune's side as he plays the game more, and figures out what kind of units he would like (and likes the look of).
       

      ^So a few days ago this is where things were at, after the use of a pair of GreenStuffWorld rollers, specifically Runes (for, uh, Rune's PanO), and Small Cobblestones (for my Yu Jing), and after several hours of assembly over three nights if I remember correctly, here's where things were...
       

      ^And phase one of basing complete.  Vallejo terrain goop, I love you.
       
      Okay, I'll admit, I wound up covering up more details than I had originally planned, but such is life - some of the original elements are still there, which is good enough in my opinion, at least for now.  I'll still get the basic idea across, although with some of them it's more going to be easter eggs in the bases, but such is life.
       

      ^And a blurry shot of how things look at the moment, with phase 2 of the basing.  Essentially, I wound up using that mix of four different types of ballast that I'd created a decade and a half ago (I mixed up a LOT of it o_O) to help even out the transitions, as well as any garish spots where the terrain paste didn't quite solidify how I was thinking it was going to...  And also as a bit of an element to tie both factions together, since they're both technically fighting over Svarlheim, or however it's spelt 
       
      Yeah, I know it's yet another WIP thread for me, but my Infinity focus shifted from N3 to Code One for the moment due to smaller table size, and newer, more streamlined rules.  That and a desire to give these minis a shot, and to hopefully see about painting them faster than my usual pace
