Because of the style of the Infinity universe, I’m pushing myself to be a bit more bold and varied with my colour choices. It’s coming along nicely, but I can’t help but feel I overworked the face and hair, and neither are as smooth as I would have liked anymore. Oh well, live and learn!
Because the face is so small on this miniature, and surrounded by other details, I wanted to start there. The physical difference in scale between Infinity miniatures, and the Warhammer miniatures I’m used to is quite astounding! I’m really struggling at times, and I’ve had to use magnifiers a few times already. It’s a lovely change of pace though – I can’t wait to work on it some more!
My first Infinity miniatures, ready to paint. I’ve had the Yu Jing chap for quite a while, as it came with an Angel Giraldez painting guide a few years back (I’ve also got Jean d’Arc somewhere…), but I picked up Oktavia Grímsdóttir recently as I just liked the model.
I’ve also picked up the N4 rulebook and the Code One starter set. Infinity has interested me for ages, but I’e never got around to scratching that itch until recently. I’m excited to dive in!
I’m genuinely quite surprised how quickly I managed to get through this set of miniatures. It might only be a small number, but they’re to a reasonable standard and include a character and centrepiece model. I had expected to be working on these right until the end of the month. I’m very tempted to keep going with the Ultramarines after this!
It’s a fairly simple paint scheme, but it’s grown on me as time has gone on. I say these are finished, but they do still need a final coating of matte varnish to reduce the shine from the earlier stages.
The blue armour is done, transfers have been applied, and details have been blocked in with black to create separation. Still quite a bit to do yet!
Getting a head start on this hobby project that’s due to be finished in March. The last 6 weeks have been insanely busy, so even with starting early I might be hard pressed to get finished off things don’t ease up soon!
Hopefully starting the year as I mean to go on, with a bunch of hobby progress. The characters were Christmas gifts, but the rest was part of what was intended to be a “Lockdown Army” project… that didn’t really pan out that way.
