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.

Infinity Aleph Deva

Here's my Deva Functionary. The first Infinity model that I've actually finished. I took me a while to get decent pics, as the lighting in my new place is pretty meh. Anyways, here goes:
I tried to stick to traditional Aleph colors of purples, grays, and blacks.

Age of Sigmar Basing of Orconnians - Scenic Bases for All!

I'm making the move to Age of Sigmar, and have been playing around with rebasing ideas. I really didn't want to rip the old bases off, as I'd spent a ton of time on them. Wayne over at the TC War Room in Traverse City Michigan came up with a genius idea. He also generously sent me a free batch of cavalry conversion bases.

Here's what he came up with. Laser cut wood drop in bases!

As you can see, they're a perfect fit!

Do it yourself Saga dice!

With the collapse of Warhammer, I've been having fun with other systems. Messing around with papercraft for Infinity has gotten me intrigued in other aspects of hobby craft not directly related to the miniatures themselves.

This post will explain all the material involved and show you how to put these sumbitches together!

Shadowed Angels - sweet new ride

Quick update of some of the painting I was able to accomplish during my Paint Escalation League as well as a little history on how they've performed so far.

I painted a Rhino a Razorback and a Venerable Dreadnought.  I was waiting to do this blog post since I want to do some battle damage, and some dirt on the tanks, but after a month I realized that other models will be taking priority so wanted to show the efforts I have made.  IF I manage to go back and add the details that I want to I will change up the pictures here.

Burnt Wood: A love story involving Warsenal terrain

The hobby bug has bitten me in a massive way.  I've fallen head over heels in love with Infinity from Corvus Belli.  In addition to lovely models, lots of terrain is required to play this game.  There are quite a few various manufacturers of MDF Laser cut / etched terrain out there.  I recently attended Gencon and saw a bunch of the Warsenal terrain painted in person which quickly led to me purchasing a few pieces.

The Finished Piece!

SkullBros Escalation Month 2 Updates (pt1)

Hey folks,

The catch-up continues--on to Month 2. At this point, shit's all over the place, so keeping SkullBros and Non-SkullBros separate seems silly. Plus, I'm just that lazy.

Shadowed Angels - Tactical Squad and Deathwing Squad

The Shadowed Angels

"The light that was shadowed then
Was seen to be our chapter,
Everything about us that might wish to be examined,
Then put away for a certain length of time, until
The whole is to be reviewed, and determined to be 
Pure once again."
