I painted up a couple of random Nomads & Mercenaries to fill out some options.
Lupe Balboa, obviously.
I needed a second Missile Launcher and Sniper Rifle so I have better options when linking Alguaciles. Also, a fifth Jaguar when running Corregidor.
Khal Drogo to be my third Yuan Yuan (first non-Fat Yuan Yuan)
This is my Raoul Spector conversion: mostly a Bashi Bazouk, with a few bits from a Hellcat to make it feel more like a Nomad. He’ll also fill in as a Yuan Yuan if it ever makes sense for me to run four Yuan Yuans.
A Krakot Renegade. These guys seem really useful, so it’s good I’ve got one painted up.
I also painted up a Xenotech I’m pretty happy with, but he’s got to be held back for the Mayacast thing.
I’ve been working on stuff, just not photographing it. Had to pull the lightbox yesterday out to demo how to use it, so I got the chance to photograph a couple of the things I’ve done in the last few weeks that came out pretty well.
McMurrough came out pretty well. In retrospect, I wish I’d pushed the kilt farther (it wasn’t challenging at all). The sword isn’t what I’d like it to be, but it was a learning experience. I’m sick of the half-assed treatment I give weapons in Infinity, and this is a step in the right direction.
I’m painting Dark Age, I guess. I’m actually pretty happy with how these came out, even though I’m frustrated by the low-quality of the metal in the metal figures and improved material but drastically worse casts of the plastic versions that came in the starter.
I painted up a few more minis while waiting for some terrain to show up in the mail.
Between that terrain being delivered and a last couple of weeks to see if I can get anything together for Historicon, this’ll probably be the last painting post I make for a bit. (Which is a shame, ’cause I’d just started getting some momentum back up here.)
Bandits are rad. They just are. I don’t know why I think 90’s urban camo is the dumbest thing but also the coolest thing, but I do, so I was happy to have an excuse to use it on the Bandit figures.
I’m still struggling with non-Caucasian skin. This came out… okay, but not the way I imagined it would. Carlota’s a Tomcat and Tomcats are great; I only got her because I really needed a second Zondcat.
Two Midnight Sun Analysts: the one on the left is the standard one, and the one on the right is the Infinity RPG variant. In space, you can have purple muttonchops. =
