  1. Infinity RP? Oh sweet I'll need to tell my rp buddies about this.
  2. My Anyat and Starter Box should be in by the end of the week
  3. Alright, will do. Should I use the nuln oil wash or make my own? I tried stupidly hard with the models, and used that lighting technique you told me about, but to a much lesser degree than the ones on your models. And I'm glad you liked the backstory, because it wasn't meant to be super serious ALSO, how do you suggest I do Kornak's face? I'm not great with small details, so I was thinking about just putting a small dot of wash on it to let it sink into all the crevices.
  4. I'm really excited to see you paint up the JSA because they're one of my favorite looking sectorials, right behind Morat Aggression Forces and USAriadna
  5. YETI MOUNTAIN FORCES Greetings! I figured this can be the place where I'll be posting up my Morat Yeti models as I paint them up, as well as some fluff and army lists that I'll be making. Now first off, my lists may seem a bit off to you guys at first, but that's because I'm doing pure Morats Yetis, cause Yeti Pride! There is a great deal of stupidity in the backstory because I like to enjoy myself in these games, so be warned. Also, keep in mind that I'm not a great painter. BACKSTORY Well, like most civilians wonder, are Yetis real? The answer may surprise you, because they are indeed. For you see, they were part of a Morat expedition force from nearly one thousand years prior that had been off scouring the Human Sphere for a worthy opponent. Upon finding the planet known as Earth, they made to land, but something went wrong! They had flown straight into the heart of a blizzard, and lost complete sight of everything! Due to that, they crashed down into the Rocky Mountains of Canada, with their ship in pieces and not a single way to communicate with others of their civilization! So, they did the one thing the could, and made the best of their environment. Digging into the mountains, they created an advanced civilization of Morats that eventually adapted to the environment, turning shades of grey and white to camouflage with the snowy surroundings! Then, late into the 21st century, they began to finally get the technology that they needed to take to the stars once more! However, as they were crafting their first several starships, their caves and homes began to collapse due to global warming! You see, the Morats, named Yetis by the locals, believed that global warming was a myth, like most! But they were wrong! -cue dramatic music- Only a few hundred Yetis managed to escape the downfall of their tragic race, but they did so within one of the starships! And they say that, to this very day, the Yetis are rebuilding within their starship, awaiting for the day that they are finally powerful enough to end the humans that were responsible for global warming. Stay frosty, my friends. ~ Commander Wampa of the Yeti Mountain Forces MODELS Commander Wampa (Kornak) His face needs a bit of work, so I'll work on that, and yes, I painted his pants like armor because it makes more sense to me. Also - I greenstuffed the fur coat(scarf?) onto him, so I hope you guys like that. Supreme Yeti Guard (Suryats) Rocket Launcher First painted model since my days of 40k! Multi-Rifle I painted this guy like his hand was cut off cause I couldn't connect it to the weapon.... So yeah, if you'd like to donate a robotic hand he'd love you. Combi Rifle Not much to say on this guy other than that I think he's my favorite of the dudes I've painted. FINAL NOTE I hope you guys like the models and the story, for I'm loving every second of this. All updates on this army will be posted up on this main-page rather than in separate posts cause I think that'll be easier than scrolling through all the comments to find them. So yeah, please leave a comment and let me know on how I could improve, but leave comments on Kornak Wampa's face out of this, I'll fix that sometime tonight or tomorrow and will try to take more pics on him
  6. Beautiful model! I'm starting the Morat Aggression Force as well and I think I'll use the idea of having the sun shine like that. I've never done multiple layers on a model so I think I can do decent, although I'll be impressed if I can do even half as well as you. How many layers of different paints did you use for the transitioning? I plan to do 5, but it looks like you did quite a few more.
  7. I'd like to pledge a Suryat from the Morat Aggression Forces. It's not in yet, so I can't take a before pic, but once I have it here, assembled, and primed I'll take one.
  8. Alright, thanks for all the help you guys, I'll make sure to check out those lines of brushes and pick between them, and it's nice to know I won't need an airbrush. I plan to take well around 4 or 5 hours on the first model (if not longer) so I don't mess it up, I'm really excited for it.
  9. Alright, so my Morats are on their way and I have a question - are there some good non-airbrush painting tutorials? I'm an alright painter, but I'd like to do these models as well as I can so I'll probably put several hours into each dude (at least) so I'm wondering how I can do them nicely without airbrushes. Also, if there aren't any tutorials you guys know of, what would you recommend? The paint scheme idea is to paint their fur whitish blue with their skin greyish (cause ya know, Yeti Mountain Forces and all) and do the under-armor black/grey (open to other color ideas though!) with dark-blue armor-plates and a light-blue right or left shoulder pad (haven't decided which yet, but probably right) Also, apologies if this is the wrong forum-page to post this topic in. If it is then please move it to the correct forum-page ^^
  10. Hmm, alright, thanks for the help! I could get hungries and the like if they're pretty essential for tournaments/competitive play, but for now my friends and I are just getting Infinity started up in our town, so it'll be pretty much a for-fun game until we learn more.
  11. At first I was gonna do Haqqislam, but the models of the Morat Aggression Forces make me too happy to not play them, so I've decided to play them, for better or worse. Anyways, I'll be starting by buying the MAT Starting pack and will use that at 150 point games to familiarize myself with the game. Any suggestions on what I should buy for my team first? I'd like to try to do a pure Morat list, which means I probably won't run Oznat that often after I start building the force. (I'm fine with using some of the mechs, or whatever they're called in this game) I'm thinking that I'll pick up a Kornak to use as my LT and maybe a box of Suryats, which would allow me to run a Kornak, a Sogarat, a link team of 3 Suryats and Raktorak, and some Morats. Opinions on if that's a good idea?
  12. That's a great idea ._. Thanks for all the help, and that actually has me thinking of getting cardboard and using the bumpy sides of it to glue on for texture
  13. Will check them out, thanks! Also, Fatpacks are a little over 4 inches tall, roughly 7 1/2 inches long, and about 3 inches wide, being made of solid cardboard, with one of the 2 pieces of the fatpack-box being completely black. What all do you guys recommend getting when going into Haqqislam?
  14. Hmm, alright. Also, another question - if not fragile, then what would you say the elites are that require you to be somewhat close-up but not in CC? Also, ANOTHER quick question - Gonna start up some custom terrain again with stuff around the house and was wondering how MTG Fat-pack boxes would work. My father buys a ton of fatpacks (he's a big mtg fan) so he has dozens of boxes he's told me I can have before.
  15. Well here's the thing with the communities - I'm 2 hours from Springfield and 3 hours from Chicago (I live in Danville), so the closest Infinity place is Champaign (Roughly 40 minute drive) which I know may not seem terrible to some of you, but our old FLGS was a walk away, which is why I'd like to get a community started here. Are there any suggestions for that, anyways? That sounds interesting Forbino, as it sounds like from the description that you'll be making units dedicated to certain tasks with that kind of faction, correct? Haqqislam is definitely a maybe-faction for me, and Tohaa still greatly interests me. The only reason Combined Army is still in the toss up is because of the amazing Yeti Forces I could build By the way, if you need a description of how I tend to play, here it is - Fast and shooty. I like coming in and dealing with threats as soon as possible, while making it efficient as possible. In other words, I like playing the Glass Cannon type factions, although I'd play differently if it enabled me to do Haqqislam or Tohaa
