  3. Hello All, and welcome to my paint blog. This will be mainly a photo dump of my progress to painting all of my Infinity stuff to date. With the models being as detailed as they are, I'm planning to take my time and push my limits on what I can do as a painter, and as a hobbyist to a degree. My main focus will be on JSA and SAA, with a another faction I'm thinking of dipping my feet into, to round out a triad of factions I want to play as. Without further a ado, let's see some pics! Enjoy! Comments and criticisms are always welcomed, and if you have any questions or perhaps tips, feel free to drop them here. I'll be more than happy to read and reply to them when I can Let's start with the first mini I painted for Infinity, an Oniwaban. Initially started out based on the box art colour scheme, this was a time that my painting skills were...sloppy. A couple of years later, I've stripped it and repainted to what you see. Limited my colour choices to dark greys, blacks and reds, and it came out really good, while showcasing how much I've grown as a painter. FYI, base is from Micro Art Studios. I'll be focusing my efforts into the same palette for rest of my JSA, but seeing resculpts of older boxes is making me hesitant to continuing with what I have (The Keisotsus are so short!) Any news on which resculpts JSA is getting, and when? Next, Read more of the fluff of Infinity (I went shiny syndrome first and foremost, so reading the rules was a later thing that happened) and noticed that my dream of a Filipino aligned faction came in the form of the SAA. Loved the Tikabalang, stoked about Toni (pre-squatting), and loved the whole jungle/guerilla warfare theme. So grabbed their box (which was luckily of the new sculpts) and went to town...slowly Here's what I have currently for SAA: Planning to paint a 150 pt. list for a demo I'll be having soon with a buddy that just started. So it'll be a proper romp through some Infinity for the both of us. But before I see myself finishing my first 150, I'll have to figure out my first model. Wanted to be the special snowflake again with this one, but the longer I stared at the official schemes and the concept artwork shown on Gencon 2015, I was sold on the Blues and Greens. So here's a Regular in progress, with me trying out NMM's for the first time: Love how the blues turned out, and it strengthened my confidence for the rest of the faction. Will be finishing this guy soon enough. So that's it for now, hope you liked what you've seen.

  5. Hi folks, I took a quick stroll through the forum and couldn't find a maintained list of podcasts and blogs dedicated to all things Infinity. By dedicated I mean 75-100% of content is Infinity related. I've listened to Chain Attack, a Warmachine and Hordes podcast for over a year now and I'd love to listen to something along the same lines for Infinity. I'm sure there are some great podcasts and blogs out there. Please post the name and url of the blogs and podcasts you listen to or read, along with a comment about why you like them, or an interesting fact about the people who put them together.

  6. I've been using MediKits more and more recently, especially in Fireteams. After a few troublesome games I realised that I just didn't have a good handle on how effective MediKits actually were when used at range and my expectations were simply not matching my experiences in game. Not only that but I had a sneaking suspicion that I should have been voluntarily forfeiting the Burst bonus sometimes , but I wasn't sure exactly when. So I decided to run the numbers and write up my findings. I hope now that some of you will find this interesting too! If you think anything looks amiss or could be explained better then please let me know. http://www.lead-rising.com/2016/10/of-math-and-medikits.html TLDR: Very approximately, MediKits are effective about 29% of the time when used at range with fairly common combinations of BS/PH. In practice you should always try getting into base-to-base contact where possible. Doing so negates a big percentage of the times where nothing would otherwise happen. As a rule of thumb, if your effective BS is 13 or better than you should fire at Burst 1 instead of Burst 2 if you want the greatest chance of healing in a single order.. Given infinite orders, you are better off shooting a PH14+ model with a Burst 2 MediKit than using it in base-to-base combat.
  7. I've been gushing about the Mercenary War Correspondent profiles over on the forums and I keep being asked why. So I decided to write about them. http://www.lead-rising.com/2015/06/the-humbler-war-correspondant.html Have you tried using them in your games? If so then let me know how it's gone, if not then why not?
  8. Hey guys check out how I got on in my first ever games of infinity and how it's causing me to tweak my ariadna list
  9. I took the plunge. After marveling at the detailed miniatures produced by Corvus Belli for over a year, I finally decided to get into the game. With the help of a few local Warcors from Warsaw I started the arduous process of familiarizing myself with the rules, which are complex, but because of this complexity give the player a plethora of opportunities which is deeply rewarding. However, as a long time hobbyist it was the choice of army which preoccupied me most. I wanted a force that would be distinctive, challenging and fun to paint. Most of all, I just had to love the models. I naturally gravitated toward the more alien and unusual factions, since cool aliens are one of the fundamental reasons to play miniatures wargames and settled on Tohaa, as they're background seems more interesting and ambiguous to me than CAs. I ended up immediately purchasing a small group of models which I quickly assembled, based and primed: The big question before me is how I'm going to paint them. After having looked at Tom Schadle's army I contemplated a non-standard paint scheme, but after giving it some extra thought, I think I might just try to increase the contrasts on the Corvus Belli scheme, and add some blue to the black. A blue and orange scheme, with some white and grey elements should be quite sharp. Additionally those are the colors of my alma mater I also have to wait for my LGS to stock up on the starter box and a few other models before I can really get into playing the game.
  10. A very helpful person inadvertently informed me that most people have signatures hidden. So it looks like I'm going to need to trot out the newest greatest thing to happen to the Infinity game. I've stared a blog with Penemue and Endalyon. Penemue as the go-to guy of Ariadna, Endalyon as the most influential battle report in the history of the game. We'll be covering the two best games currently in production: Infinity and Batman. Our goal is to talk about various tactics, strategy and other silliness. Our assumption is that you've read the rules and are looking for more than definitions but applications of your models' skills and abilities. http://critskillpeople.blogspot.ca/ Oh yeah, it updates every day. And now a picture of a cat.
  11. Hello Infinity players! I just thought I would drop by and introduce myself. My name is Mike and I live in Gen Con central....Indianapolis. I've lurked on the boards for a while now but I am finally moving forward with Infinity. I played a demo game at Origins 2013 and then picked up the rules and a few starter boxes. Unfortunately, my gaming group plays board games and nobody paints. Although I wanted to play, I just lost some steam trying to get it off the ground. I am back to give it go though. I've started a blog to track my progress making terrain and painting figures. I hope put my battle reports on there as well. Stop by and check it out if you are interested in that sort of thing. http://indygamerinfinity.blogspot.com/
  12. hello there in this post I will be posting all the Infinity miniatures I paint. To start this post I put my last work. This is a commission work for a spannish distributor I do with Angel Giraldez. this client has various armyes and we usually paint the new minis for him every two or three months. this time is a batch of Panoc and some aleph, they are mostly painted by me and retouched by my master Angel Giraldez . the aleph:

  14. Hi infinity! Recently, I've been very excited about the game which is infinity. I've been a lurker on these forms and I've proxied a few infinity games. I've really enjoyed the system. Now,I've begun to (slowly) start collecting a small metros force. So far, I've obtained the mirage-5 strike team, and begun painting Durok. Now, I'm not the best painter around, so I thought it would be good to start a blog and maybe get some feedback so my finished infinity force really shines! This project is really from day 1, so you will be able to see every step of the project along the way. Some of you may have seen me at DakkaDakka . The threads really get buried so quickly there, I thought I'd have better luck here. Constructive criticism is always welcome, and encouragement is appreciated. 2-11-2013
  15. Hi all Just to let you know that I have a new Blog running at sixdsix.co.uk. Only one Infinity related item on there so far, but I have more ready and waiting to be posted up in the next few weeks. Enjoy the new year Jarec
