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... :devil:

Gotta be ready for any situation. 
Looks good! You did a good job on him!

I can’t say anything about color, my my Terran alliance fleet is painted Arctic blue and red.

They apparently don't care if the enemy sees them coming, either. :) 

 

Nice work. Hope they play as well as they look.

Many thanks! 

 

I think the biggest thing (other than not caring much for the studio paint job, at least replicating) is while I could go with typical desert dwelling kind of colours, I really wanted them to pop.  I also like oranges and reds, so it felt more natural for my force to go that direction. 

 

Apparently it's also a subconscious nod to red vs blue, since my force's dominant colour is red, and Rune's is blue/purple... :lol:

Indeed!  I think part of it for me was challenging myself to paint an army that stands out but still looks good... And isn't my usual "winds up being dark despite saying for sure this time, I'll have it brighter" ^_^

 

We will see how my luck goes, they can pack a good punch but because of such heavy infantry tend to me in the top three of  most people's "needs to go down" lists.  Which can be good at the same time, if they wind up burning a bunch of orders to dislodge him...

      So, a little over a year ago I got my paws on a decent amount of MDF terrain, specifically with the goal of using it to build up a nice Infinity board.  After narrowing it down, I wound up ordering some things from Warsenal as well as Global Evil Corp.  Warsenal was because I loved the look of their Cosmica Line, and Global Evil Corp because I absolutely love kerf cuts and the fact they utilized such to have ROUNDED CORNERS on buildings.  Oh yeah, and the sliding windows and doors gimmick was a pretty big draw too.
       
      Last month my goal was to get it all primed, because I was tired of the raw MDF, plus I wanted to use it as inspiration to keep moving on my Infinity miniatures...  This month I'm going to see what can be
       

      ^Let's just say there's a semi-reasonable amount of terrain involved....
       

      ^An okay amount for a diverse, two level 15 point (Code One) or 150 point (N4) field, although I could use a few more options...
       

      But definitely not much in the way of full on variety for a full on 30 point (Code One) or 300 point (N4) 4x4' table.
       


      ^Before I forget, this is what attaches on to that cube frame.  Looks so much nicer built up, even if I uh, haven't built the last panel yet due to lack of space on the desk.
       
      ~
      Anyways, they've been raw MDF for far too long in my opinion, so let's get things staged over by the airbrush....

      ^Mr Hobby Mr.Almighty clips are rather handy....
       

      ^And primed.  Yup, classic black primer with a white "zenithal" (for lack of better words) across things.
       


      ^After a few hours, we now have this.  Okay, stage is set, but it feels like something is missing....
       

      ^Aha, looking a lot better.  Initially I was going to try and go crazy on the colours for the exterior, but hubby and I just like the basic light kinda blue colour we've got going, so onwards to accents...
      (Colours used: Mission Models Blue, with a small amount of black added in, as well as a reasonable amount of white - goal was for a bit of a greyish blue, and while I didn't quite get it how I wanted, eh, close enough and we like it)
       


      ^Decided to show the roof progress a little more in depth here, partially because I remember @Kangaroorex inquiring about the opacity of those Wicked Colours Opaque colours.  The Dioxazine Purple I think was five drops of colour with two drops of Vallejo Thinner Medium, and on the right I had a moderately wet hybrid brush that was dipped into paint, and then traced along.  Not sure what happened on the right side, but somehow I managed to go almost all the way around without running out of paint, but I also wasn't able to repeat it, although it was only a few inches before it started becoming see through.  I'll still try to remember to do an actual test over white paper with print at some point.
       

      ^Now, as for those roofs...  Sure, I could mask things, or even create a airbrush template, and I might still, but at the same time...  The basic blocks have been laid down, with Wicked Opaque Pthalo Blue on the inner triangle like bits, Wicked Opaque Pyrrole Orange on the inner thin line, and Wicked Opaque Dioxazine Purple on the outer line.
       
      What's the current plan?  Well, naturally I'm going to get the basic colours laid down on the rest of the items, but I'm going to test out Pthalo Blue on a roof section to see what thoughts are.  Originally, the two lines that go around each building were going to be orange, but after a quick though they're going to be purple.  Warsenal stuff will see more oranges and reds, as well as purples to them, at least that's the current main plan ^_^;;;

      Finished my first mini this year, and oddly enough it was a speedpaint, taking just over an hour...





       
      On the flipside, some of those colours work together really, REALLY well, like Sunrise Orange and Heart Throb Paint.

      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.
