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'

Alrighty!  So, I'm on the tail-end of my cold now and feeling up to some more painting!   The exposure is all off on my camera for these pics, so things are washed-out, but you can see that

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

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.....

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!  ::):

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?

      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. 
       




      And a shot of him next to my old skiavoros

      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

      Hubby doesn't like painting the smaller figures, which is fine by me, but we both would like his force for Infinity to be painted, aaaand I just so happen to want to paint the Ratnik.  That's right, I spent $100 CAD on a boxed set where half the minis will be staying on a shelf for a while, and the other half are there to accompany the one mini I really wanted to paint.  Okay, there's also the fact there's an Ariadna starter in there, but still :P
       

      So first and foremost, we have the minis from Coldfront + Beyond Coldfront assemble and based, which some would say is always a good start.  I'm not going to argue with them 
       

      Mission Models primer!  I think it was something like 16 parts Grey Primer to 4 parts Black Primer, with four or five drops of thinner - I was aiming for slightly darker than grey, but not too too dark.  Just enough to give some basic details.
       

      Bleached Linen drybrushed on to help bring out the details, then I think it was Citadel's Drakenhof Nightshade, uh, shade...  Then Void Blue for the obviously blue bits.
       

      Then the Ratnik got a mix of Void Blue and Dragon Black on some of the armour panels and weaponry, followed by a healthy dose of Secret Weapon's Hard Body Black Wash.  Okay, looks like this fox overdid it a bit, as some things show rather black, but I'll live.  It at least gives me a basic idea of where I am, and where I'm going, which is arguably the most important to me
       

      Here's a closer look at the Scout (on the left) and Veteran Kazak.  They've received a bit of that Void Blue / Dragon Black mix in crevices if I remember correctly....
       
       
       
      Oh yeah, there's also a bit more in the queue for him too...

      ^USAriadna starter box (for now he's said he'll paint the antipodes (werewolves), but if he asks me to paint them, I'll paint them
       

      ^Support pack (112 Medic... ON A BIKE!), Line Kazaks (additional weaponry for the "basic" troopers), Scout with AP Sniper, Blackjacks with Sniper (big shooty thing!), and a Hardcase Frontiersmen with a Tactical Bow.
       
      Initial focus is going to be on the Coldfront minis, and getting things sorted out so we both have a starter set of miniatures we can game with
