Additional Warsenal Infinity Terrain - Walkways Complete

 Recently I went to work on some additional Infinity Warsenal terrain.  In the picture below you can see the completed Walkway.  I followed the same recipe as I did in the first piece I completed.

Really enjoying how this terrain paints up and turns out.  The airbrush is a lot of fun to use and although it's really tedious masking parts and highlighting the paint chipping, the end result is great.

Infinity Aleph Naga Hacker

The completion of this model puts me 1/2 done with the initial lot of models I need for the first army list I made.

This guy took longer than I anticipated, but I had a lot of fun with him!

I mixed up some big lots of custom tones in an old contact lens case before I started, then I used those base tones for all the purple based parts. There was a light one, and a dark one. They were mixes of gray, purple, and black tones.

Infinity Aleph Dakini Tacbot

Finished the 4th model in my Infinity crew. The Dakini Tacbot.
Once again with the same palette I used on the Devabot. I did no real variance from it for this one.

Point Hammered History - Old MtG Style 6th Ed Warhammer Spell Cards

Here's the old 6th Ed (I think) Warhammer spell cards I made, as mentioned on Point Hammered episode #141. Long before we had legitimately made (though pricey) GW sanctioned spell cards, we had to come up with our own solution.

We'll start with this real doosey. The Wild Call was a Bray Shaman only spell. That's an xray of a cell phone jammed up someone's hind end.

100% Paint Challenge - The Beginning

Over the course of 2017, I will be attempting to get my miniature collection 100% painted! Everyone knows how impossible this is, so I will surely be struck down by the gods moments before this becomes reality. I've decided to track my progress through video, to encourage (and possibly deter!) those who wish to follow in my footsteps.

Warsenal - Infinity(40k) terrain first piece

I wanted to take a minute to show off the first piece (test if you will) for the Warsenal terrain I bought.  I currently do not own any infinity models and have only played one sample game in which we used only a couple of models.  However, the terrain is really cool and I play enough 40k where I thought it could work very well.  So with that I got aggressive last weekend and knocked one piece out in a red/gray scheme.

40K Narrative Event - Creating the Planet and Moon

I had a couple requests from people to show how I turned a soccer ball into a planet for the 40k Narrative tournament I ran at Waaaghpaca.  Well, despite what people thought - it wasn't a soccer ball...

Infinity Aleph Asuras

I've been on a real roll working through the Aleph stuff. Haven't been this motivated in years! I've finished the 3rd model in my crew, the Aleph Asuras. Here's a shot of the whole crew so far.
As you can see, I kept the palette limited to the same colors I used on the other two models.

Infinity Aleph Devabot

I've finished the 2nd mini in my Aleph crew. A nice Devabot to go with the Deva Functionary I finished before. It's probably obvious I know nothing about the game based on the minis I'm selection (purely based on looks at this point).

Regardless, here it is:
I went with a similar color scheme to the Deva, but went way heavier on the creams rather than the pinks.

Orctonnian Boar

I finished up this guy today. Time to get to work on his rider (the unit Muso) if I don't get distracted with more Infinity!

AoS Khorne Bloodbound Conversion

I finished this guy a while ago. I'm really struggling to get good photos these days. These ones are the best I could get after several attempts. Hopefully I'll get that sorted before too long.

As you can see, I altered the head and shoulder pad on this fella. I don't care for the helmets overly much; while they look pretty kewl, there's way more character / personality in a face! The dreadlocks I sculpted on there with green stuff.
Part of the reason I painted this guy was to test a theory I'd been working on regarding doing armor with different colored washes. The technique was simple, basecoat with dark metallic color, wash heavily with red, then highlight with sequentially lighter shades of silver metallics. I ended up having to do more red washes in between the layers to keep things looking sufficiently red.
