Reverend Moira aka what is wrong with Infinity models?

Another Infinity models is ready. This time – rather controversial miniature. Reverend Moira. Corvus Belli miniatures are kept in certain aesthetics. Some people like to see them as opposition or alternative to Games Workshop models. Well, in many ways I agree with that opinion – Infinity with all graphical concept refer to good old and very popular manga style. When you visit Corvus Belli web page or take a look inside any of books – you’ll get the idea. The future offered in Infinity is somewhat different than dark grim 41st Millennium of Warhammer. Infinity’s is rather plastic and clean. Full of  pretty girls and handsome boys. It looks little bit like pop video – where everything is so clean and shiny. Even war on distant planets;). Please, don’t get me wrong – I love Infinity miniatures. For me they are the best for making break from any of GW models. Infinity are different, but great to paint. Demanding, but rewarding. My Nomads Bakunin faction is slowly growing – many minis left to paint, and …

Infinity: More Moderators.

Another batch of miniatures ready. Recently I’ve adjusted the way how I paint them. So far I have been painting one model at the time, but recently I’ve decided to change the tactics. I paint at least three models simultaneously. This is efficient way of painting, but I need to be settled down for at lest few days. Setting up my painting station and juggling between minis for one day…hmmm…no can do…too lazy for that:). …but when I was staying on Panglao Island, I have been able to set up my workplace for a little bit longer (10 days near to lovely Alona Beach – charming place!) and I could work on three minis at the same time without the hassle. Advantages. First of all I do not get bored so easily. Diversity is the key. If I fell like painting faces, I paint face, but in actual moment I want to paint the base or, let’s say, pants, I do so. I can jump from one model to another, whenever I want to. The …

Zero.

Hello again. Another model is finished. Actually I’m (surprise, surprise:) little bit ahead of my schedule. The model I’m about to present now – Zero for Nomads Bakunin Sectorial Army  (Infinity The Game)… and beside that, I’m on the pretty decent run right now – one more mini is ready for presentation – Pandora, my second Master for Neverborn, Malfaux. All I need is to make some proper photo session. Tomorrow, most probably. …but today I have Zero. The thing is, for the last month I was sooooo occupied with Blood Angles for Warhammer 40000. Well, as painting the Space Marines was kind of rewarding job, I must admit, all those guys look almost the same! Various poses, few details making the difference – but generally, it’s all about red, red and red one more time… no, wait… plus black bolter;). Definitely I needed the break from Adeptus Astartes. Hope The inquisition will not mind… And what’s better for a break from Wh40k than painting a model for Infinity.  Infinity minis are in some kind …

Pink Moderator gal. Bakunin Nomads. Infinity The Game

…and another miniature painted. I left Bali behind me – right now I’m on Koh Chang in Thailand and my next travelling painting station’s product is Moderator Girl from Nomads Bakunin, Infinity The Game (with combi rifle and lollipop…ekh…marker). Below I give you my thoughts about the miniature and describe a bit how exactly I paint it and what paints I used. Like I mentioned the last time – I brought many girls miniatures with me to Asia. Especially my Infinity selection includes plenty of girls to paint – this exact Moderator, Reverend Custodier, Reverend Moira, Zero… quite few…Infinity offers plenty of great detailed, fragile women models to paint – these are so entirely different than the minis I used to paint most of the time – Games Workshop offers bulky, big, even huuuge models. Even Sisters of Battle or Daemonettes of Slaanesh have bigger bodies than this skinny girl… When I started to paint Infinity models, I needed to made the transition in my head – painting GW is relatively easy, even detailed minis. …

Infinity The Game. Prowler from Nomads, Bakunin

Along with my growing Malifaux Neverborn faction I’m trying to paint some base starting army for Infinity the Game – Nomads Bakunin Jurisdictional Command. As I already have enough models to play some tutorial basic game of Malifaux, when it comes to Infinity still I lack at least 6. And, well to be completely honest, I need a miracle to paint all six in exact two weeks. Almost impossible. 21th October I’m off to Australia and I’ll be away for around 6 months wandering around Australia, Indonesia, Malaysia, Thailand and other countries. …and that’s sucks a little. I was looking forward the game of Infinity. I heard so many positive opinions about this game. It’s complicity and dynamisms, unique rules and fast games. I mean, I could play the game with unpainted minis, but I made my inner resolution – no games with unpainted models. I was mentioning about this few time before – this is important for me. Painted miniatures make the game way more cooler and it gives me more fun. I don’t …

Progress on my Infinity Bakunin army – Moderator Gal

As I promised to myself – my work on Infinity The Game project continues. I made an agreement with my friend Jarek – that we will play Infinity at least one time before I leave Poland. Mine Bakunin Nomads against his Aleph. Jarek is perfect opponent for me –  both of us are absolutely beginners. Maybe he has some more experience, he played few tutorial games – but still he is learning the games, its rules and strategies, so he will be at my reach and the game will be smooth and I’ll handle the events during the game on the tabletop. The best to learn and still get fun from it. So, Jarek, here I come! I think the very first game will be for 200 points. It’s little bit less than usual game of Infinity (300 points), but it will be just fine for the rookie like me. Still enough models to get familiar with schematics of the game and have jolly entertaining game. Maybe even more than one in the same evening. …

Infinity The Game – Bakunin – Moderator with Spitfire

Busy days behind me. I painted a lot… Every day, every evening I was sitting down for few hours at my workbench and painted. Until I was so tired, I could handle the brush any more… This is strange… it’s supposed to be a hobby. Fun. And it should bring me joy. Instead of that – after few hours of constant painting, I felt relief… Oh, Gosh – finally over. I can go to sleep… 😉 Sounds like whining…well.. maybe a bit…but when I the miniature is finished, I feel that excitement again and I’m proud I reached the goal. And of course I’m proud of myself… and then another evening starts and I repeat the process… My latest model is Moderator form Infinity The Game – Nomads Bakunin Jurisdictional Command. Generally in next few weeks I have a plan to concentrate my painting efforts mostly on Infinity (with some breaks for Malifaux). I recently have bought  Infinity Rulebook and after quick study I must say the game system is pretty wicked. First of all, …
