Cordelia (Infinity)

Recommended Posts

That is a gorgeous sculpt, and suddenly I'm feeling about mayyyyybe picking one up too since she'd fit right in with my Catachans quite possibly... 

 

Lovely base too, doubly so on the creative use of things.  Window screen for a mesh floor is awesome!

Sigh.

 

Everything Infinity miniature I see just makes me want to buy heavily into the game, even though my chances of playing are...slim.

 

Seeing you paint them, Kuro, does not help my resolve.

 

Beautiful work so far, I'm looking forward to more!

I don't know why, but on the crack by her right foot, I kinda saw a "branch" and then I started to think "man.....that would be cool if there was a graffiti'ed rose there and the crack was perfectly dissecting it". A juxtapositon of man (urban) vs nature.....

Great start! The green is lovely and the base is awesome! I am going to have to remember the screen idea.

Thanks a bunch, everyone!  ::):  Unfortunately, I have come down with a bit of a cold, so my progress may be a bit sporadic until I recover...

Thanks, WhiteWulfe and Sanael!  I thought I should warn you, though, that Cordelia is (sadly) not available by herself.  She only comes in the combo pack of her and her brother (Scarface and Cordelia) which is usually only available for $40+!

 

As far as the game goes, one of my brothers got in to it with me for a while, and we had some fun with the system.  That being said, however, the system quickly lost us when we figured out how much it demands "broken" or "overpowered" builds to be competitive.  My strategy was smoke and night vision, and (if it went correctly) my squad would be invisibly killing my opponents the whole match.  That was not fun either to play or play against.

It does kind of look like a branch or stem, doesn't it?  I want to start shifting the whole mini to more of a cyberpunk theme, though, so I'm not sure whether I'll attempt any graffiti.

Kuro added some new vids to his youtube channel, too, including one for the danger striping on the base here.

 

Great job, Kuro!  Thanks for new vids!  

 

And thank you!  Hopefully some of the new vids are useful!  ::):

Okay, so apparently my cold is not going to be as mean to me as I feared, and I got some major work done today!

I really, really liked using the Gold Skin triad for her face!  Those colors behave so much better than my old Rosy Skin triad standbys!

I love that hair!!

 

I agree about the Golden Triad vs the Rosy Triad. The Golden one is super pleasant to use, and expands well with the Bronzed and Fair Triads, and some of the Steampunk set from S75. The Rosy one I toss wee bits in as blush on some stuff, but it also is slightly more grainy (or at least my bottles are). 

 

Having a cold sucks. I've been putting off my nice stuff due to that too. Heal up fast, mkay?

      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!!!

      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?
