Just a quick post, I squeezed in a quick play time with the airbrush to see what I could do with my over primed HoG terrain. I just messed adding various colours to see what they would come out like. Here’s the result.
Still a way to go obviously, also need to practice with my airbrush aiming skills 😉 However I did feel like I made some progress experimenting on this piece. I’m not sold on my tree colour yet. Need to keep thinking on that.

It has been a while since I last picked up an Infinity model to paint, definitely even longer since I played the game. However, an urge took hold of me and I ordered the Vallejo Shasvastii Paint Set. It helps that I’m a sucker for an exclusive miniature, but it was mostly because I wanted to try the paint scheme. That’s because I have backed the Defiance KS and I know fine well there is going to be some Shasvastii to paint. This post is about how I got on using the paint set and following the painting guide to paint the included Nox Trooper.
Working from home during the Covid lockdown is proving challenging on the hobby time. Usually I find myself working late into the night to cover the hours I’m not working when I’m looking after my lad. Fortunately this last week I’ve been off work – stay at home holidaying. So I’ve made some progress on my Solaria Warlord titan.
Back in February I posted an article about converting an Operation Icestorm sculpt ORC to have a HMG, specifically using an alternative method to the simple Aquila Guard HMG arm swap. Infinity has taken a back seat to Guild Ball at the gaming club, consequently my drive to paint Infinity models has sadly diminished. That was unto I found out what the Q3 Mayacast Masterglass theme was, and suddenly the urge to paint that HMG armed ORC Heavy Infantry model returned. Thank you Mayacast!
An Infinity Yu Jing Ninja With Tactical Bow Conversion
This was a Christmas present for my mate Steve, and this post is how I went about converting the model. Steve got me in to Infinity at the start of the year, and has a Yu Jing JSA force himself. There currently isn’t a Ninja model available armed with a Tactical Bow in the Infinity range, so I thought I’d convert one for him. Continue reading →
Well it’s the night before my first ever Infinity tournament: Northern Open 3, at Leeds. I have been frantically getting my stuff together, tokens, tape measure, dice, double checking my bag in general waiting for the last coat of matt varnish to dry on my models so they can be packed away.
I don’t expect anything much from my gaming ability, new game system, first tournament, zero list building experience, zero tournament mission experience. However I do hope I can give a good showing in the painting department with this little lot:
Sadly I never got round to even getting my last two models needed for the lists built never mind painted. But I’ll take them with me, so in between rounds I can at least get them put together. I am guessing I’ll have plenty of free time, having been slaughtered pretty quickly in each round.
Right better find out the directions for where I am going 🙂
After posting my Pathfinder Dronbot up on-line, I got a lot of positive comments about the base it is mounted on. I figured I would do a small series of articles about how I go about making the bases for my Infinity models. This is the last of a series of 3 posts talking about my Infinity base toppers.
This is my entry into the Data Sphere Forum’s Fall Painting Challenge. This quarter’s challenge was to paint a specialist of one form or another, my entry is a Panoceania Pathfinder Dronbot. This counts as Forward Observer specialist and for me makes a change form painting infantry, which my previous entries have all been.
I don’t hold out much hope of winning this quarter’s challenge as there are some outstanding painters on those forums. But I am very happy with how this model has turned out, especially given how little time I spent on it this month. Maybe I am starting to speed up in my painting 😉
