Infinity Desperadoes by Corvus Belli 280179-0560

Recommended Posts

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. :)

Looking good - I like the terrain color added - maybe also try some higher up splatter? 

 

Thanks for the comment! I was considering adding more splatter but was afraid of overdoing it, definitely worth considering though. I suppose I could use an old toothbrush and kind of flick it on, that might keep it from getting too much.

Weathering and paint job is great. The cracked dried ground on the base is genius. Crackle medium?

 

Basically. Its Agrellan Earth from Citadel. Just put it on and it does the rest. Only trick was to then find a color that matched it for the "splash" effect on the bike, but the P3 Beast Hide was pretty close. If you do use it, one word of caution, the thinner you put it on, the more it will crack, but if you put it on too thin, then the base will just be brittle and flake off. I'm far from an expert at it, but it's definitely worth practicing.
