Infinity: Hassassin Ayyar

Recommended Posts

Good job, he looks dangerous!

I like how the weapon has a realistic colour, military guns are usually black, you covered that well.

Looks great! The reddish orange really stands out and I love the dust effects on the edge of the cloak.

They can be rather dangerous, doubly so that they're able to conceal their presence on the table.  Here's a quick breakdown on a few abilities they have:

  • Holoprojection level 2: In english, this lets them conceal themselves as another light infantry unit (level 1's ability), as three Ayyar (level 2's ability, two are holographic decoys), or at the shenanigan level of three infantry of the same type (say, as three basic line troopers).  The third option has extra rules, but if you're deploying first it can provide for some interesting shenanigans (the gig is up partially at the start of your first turn, where one of the three models must get a "holo-projection" marker placed next to it)
  • Shock Marksman Rifle: this is a decent medium ranged weapon, getting a +3 bonus in the 8-24" range band, and the shock ammo will take most light infantry off the board if wounded
  • Dual Viral Pistols: the close range weapon they carry (they're +3 to hit from 0-8") has a nasty side-effect to it - for every wound they make, two rolls must be taken (so if both pistols hit, that's four rolls).  Viral ammo also has that lovely insta-kill against a lot of light infantry

In short, from what I've read, they tend to kill whatever they aim their rifle at, but they're also a rather risky play: if they're revealed on the opponent's team, they tend to be lit up.  If it's your active turn, they tend to be played rather aggressively in order to capitalize on their unique abilities, and then hidden around a corner where they can't be seen, in order to reset their holoprojector (if out of enemy range, they can bring two holoprojections into play at the end of the active turn).

 

In most instances, swearing tends to be a reaction to them being revealed, as they're usually rather effective at being murder machines.

 

The rifle is done in Midnight Black, oddly enough, with a drybrush of Void Blue on top I think.  Figuring out a colour for the weapon was one of the hardest things to work out, since I wanted something that would be different than the cloak, separate itself from the armour, but also have that relatively realistic look to it, so I'm glad in the end it came out looking like such ^_^

Many thanks!  I'm glad that it came out well!  I'd originally gone in too heavily with the wash for such, and tried to hastily clean up some of the excess, so I'm rather happy that the slight splotchyness that came about because of such helps with the effect ^_^

Nice job painting up an awesome figure. Really like the way you painted his armor. Man, I love Infinity models. They're poses are so dynamic.

Your paint job is to good. I must confiscate your brushes to protect the feelz of all the fumblefingers out there (like me). ::D:

Believe it or not, most of the work I do on my miniatures is done with Winsor and Newton Scepter II Golds, typically of the 101 (round) and 606 line (flat) lines.  Like any synthetic (or hybrid) brush, they can and will hook over time, but since they still hold a point when doing such I wind up turning any brush that does such into a crevice or tight area brush, so they're still used regularly. 

 

Come to think of it, I get my dry brushes from Dollarama, I think in $2 packs, possible $2.50 for a few (four or five). 

 

My Winsor and Newton Series 7 usually only sees use for smaller details, because I find that the size 0 doesn't quite hold as much paint as I'd like, which is why I'm looking at getting some larger brushes in that line... I do like the Series 7, but I've slowly been gaining a preference for larger brushes for most of my work, and will probably be moving over to have size 1 and 2 as my main brushes. 

 

Many thanks for the compliment, but I'm definitely keeping my brushes.. Although I have been known to take up the finger painting RPChallenge on occasion, as it's a fun challenge to do! ^_^

 

Additional playful response to brush confiscation: I have even more in the mail headed my way, odd as such may sound (I'm slowly working up to three sets - one for priming and terrain, one for my detail stuff, and one for larger scale miniatures... Coincidentally, each set being at its own desk...)

      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...

      Please see the main post here for rules, questions and general chatter, while using this thread to keep a list of links to your show-offs or show-off related comments in a single post: A reminder to please adhere to miniatures posting guidelines as usual.

      All the information you need should be here.

      As a change of pace from the Hard Mode Challenge, this round will have a Skill Challenge.

      May and June 2019 Challenge

      Your challenge is: 9!

      Bonus Challenge: The First!
      "Mayday!" is an international distress signal used in verbal communication in ships and aircraft.  Your first bonus challenge, should you choose to accept it, is to paint a miniature in some distress.  This could be a diorama, an adventurer falling into a trap, villian whose weapon just broke, or anything else your mind can conjure.

      Bonus Challenge: The Second!
      The Solstices: June marks the beginning of Summer in the Northern Hemisphere and Winter in the Southern Hemisphere.  Paint a miniature or a pair of miniatures showcasing this duality.

      Skill Challenge: OSL
      Try your hand at painting a miniature using OSL or Object-Source Lighting.  If you feel like this is something that is already in your wheelhouse, work on your technical skills in another area.  Practice NMM, TMM, wet-blending, sculpting, or anything else you've been meaning to try.

      As always, the game is made up and the points don't matter!

      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
