Infinity Aleph Force Complete (And Display Board Completion)

I'm all done with this Infinity effort. I checked my timeline, and I finished the first model for this crew on January 16, 2016. That's a solid year of effort. The only things I worked on that weren't related to Infinity this year was a bit of sculpting on an AoS project.

This post will also serve as the completion of the display board post. I have a bunch of WIP shots of the painting of it, but they're honestly not that interesting.
I'm stoked with how all this came together. It has the feel that I was going for: clean, crisp, bright, post-apocolyptic, and somehow robotically efficient.

Infinity Aleph Agêma Marksman w/ Missile Launcher

I've finished the Agêma Marksman with missile launcher. 

He took a bit longer than I'd anticipated, mostly due to all the little extra bits on him; though a good sized home remodeling project also reared its ugly head, and got in the way.
He was fun to paint. Different enough from the rest of the Aleph stuff to not be boring or repetitive.

Infinity Aleph Sophotect

Despite the boring slag through that bit of base tech she has around her feet, I've finally finished the Sophotect.

She's the penultimate Infinity model that I need completed for WAAAGH!Paca so I'm rather stoked to be starting on the last one of the lot. Let's not get ahead of ourselves here though.

Here's the Sophotect:
What a sweet model!

Infinity Army Display Board - Part One of Two

This is part one of what will be a two part post. This post covers construction, and priming. Getting the display board ready for paint. The second post will cover painting.

When I began, my goal was to have a smashed up city scene display board. I wanted something interesting to look at, and fun to build. I wanted it magnetized so the models would stick, and I wouldn't have to worry about the fragile metal models losing arms and weapons when they tumbled over. I also wanted it to be versatile, so I could perhaps use it for other games/armies if the need arose.

Here's where it all started, an oval shaped plaque that I picked up from the hardware store. I also picked up some destroyed building walls resin terrain pieces to go on it.

I laid out the terrain in several different fashions, and went with the most favorable seeming option.

I ended up with an intersection where 2 city blocks come together at an alley, with a sidewalk, and a large street section.
I traced out the rough idea of what I wanted to build on it.

Infinity Aleph Netrod #2

Not too much excitement here. Another Netrod. I couldn't bring myself to paint it identical to the first one. They're boring enough to paint as it is.
The only interesting part of this in terms of painting was the base, and the tops of the lighted flaps.

Infinity Aleph Atalanta Agêma's NCO

Well, it took about 3 weeks, but the next Infinity model is finished! She had way more detail than I thought, so therefore took longer. Plus I lot a few days playing Civilization 6, and a few days repairing her snapped off sniper rifle. So, without further adieu, here she is.
There was a zero percent chance that that sniper barrel wasn't going to break off during painting. True to form, it did so before I even finished painting the legs.
