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 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

      The Al Fasid, also known as "The Corrupted", are HaqqIslam's heavy troopers that will get the job done no matter the cost.  Their methods aren't always the prettiest, and they're never the stealthiest, and they have their own tricks they bring with them to the table.  They don't care about glory, and are solely chosen for their solid record of getting the job done.  Some enjoy it, some are in it for the solid paycheque, and others do it because the only thing theyy know what to do is fight.  Today I have the HMG version, who also conveniently carries a grenade launcher that can shoot either regular grenades to keep enemy heads down, or smoke grenades to provide additional cover.  Oh, they also pack anti-personnel mines with them too...
       


       
      Since the "tactical rock" under his right foot kind of looked rather strikingly like the backpack for a Yu Jing (even though I'm not having any luck finding models to confirm this), I decided to try and test out my planned colour scheme for them.  That's right, I'll be going with a dark raver / cyberpunk burnt neon pink for their general colour, because why not - I'm going with hot orange for my Haqq...

      Being that this is the figure that was the biggest reason why I picked up the Hassassin Bahram Sectorial Starter Pack (say that three times fast ), I was suspecting he'd wind up on my painting desk sooner or later...  I just didn't realize he'd have the honour of being the first finished this year, as well as my first finished Infinity miniature!
       

       
      At some point in the near future I'll acquire some S2 holoprojector tokens for him, as actual 3D representations are nice.  Not sure where from, but I like my current Art of War Studios things, so probably theirs.
       
      Oh, and for those who might be curious, that's a Global Evil Corp UniPod with two StairPods (well, one pack) in the first three pics, fourth one is a DuoPod with a StairPod alongside it.  Sadly no magnets yet for the terrain, but they're on the way, and will get here at some point
