Taking the plunge...

Starting my journey into the epic waters of Infinity this week!

Its been a long time since I have been interested enough in a new game to put money into it, so looking forward to great things =)

Of course I HAVE to play as the bad guys... its tradition!

Here is my first group shot, some sneaky Shasvastii!

Painted on the weekend in about 2 hours (after a fun couple of rounds of Xwing - not a bad beer and pretzels game) It really reminds me of modelling and painting Rackham's mini's - lots of very intricate parts and loads of swearing and cursing until the pieces decide to stick together!

All I can say is that if you want to model Infinity miniatures Hot Stuff is your best friend!

That's all I have for the game ATM, I might drag out some more Rogue Trader stuff for a quick brush up? Looking forward to having a go with the rules soon - have to find a willing opponent =)

A bit of brushwork =)

A few little projects finished...

I think these were from the 'Harlequin' range? Bought centuries ago to be Mordhiem hirelings - they might get their chance soon!
The guy on the left got a 5 min cloak to hide his ridiculous mohawk and general lack of interesting-ness. I still cant picture how he hopes to use the thing he's holding as a weapon. At least he now has some 'Fist of the North Star' wanderer credibility...

The other two were pretty much OOP - except the female fighter got er, enhanced characteristics and longer hair.

Cause that's how I roll.

I never got to get into Confrontation or Ragnarok from the sadly missed original Rackham Games Company (so much beautiful - I cant even)
I did however manage to pick up Hybrid, something I am very much looking forward to playing next year (finished minis pending!)
These two beautiful boys were bought for me by a good friend in anticipation of conflicts that never happened many, many years ago.
I dont know what it is about painting Rackham minis, they scare the shit out of me until I resolve to do it - then once you get started they almost paint themselves!
Well, you know what I mean.

Finishing off a fantasy laden week of painting is this delicate flower. I chucked her on a 25mm base to bring her up to scale with the other minis she will be traveling with, which is annoying as now I cant read the stamp on the base of her, um, base. I think she is an old Ral Partha?
Anyway I seem to remember she cost me the total sum of a buck from a box sale somewhere in my cobwebbed past - then proceeded to languish in a game box full of Chaotic nastiness (still to be painted...) for the better part of a decade.
Now with Humbrol kirtle and auburn hair she awaits adventure!

And yes before you ask, that IS a Messerschmitt BF110 C4 in the background.
