Seek and ye shall find.

I managed to find the picture of the Pupniks that I mentioned yesterday.

These guys were clearly before red became my favourite colour in the scheme – not repainting them though as the green will tie them in with the rest of my force.


There’s something fishy going on.

Whilst enjoying a game of Firefly yesterday afternoon (which is amazing by the way) one of my friends asked which game was winning the painting poll, when I informed him of the current result he seemed surprised as it appears he had voted for the same game SIX times.

Now, this is clearly an oversight on my part as I wasn’t aware the stupid thing would allow people to vote more than once so, hopefully, this has now been rectified.

The poll will run for quite a while yet as there are still a number of Infinity miniatures for me left to paint – including some that aren’t from the Nomad range /em shock.

If you haven’t voted yet you can do so below or point friends and family to the link and get them to vote for you, spread the word on forums etc. I don’t mind as long as each person only votes once and I don’t have to make a decision on where this project takes me.

#miniaturemonday 03/02/14

Another week, another #miniaturemonday and another Infinity miniature painted. This time it is the Chimera from the  Überfallkommando box set. Now, I think I may have posted the rest of the boxset on twitter many moons ago but not on here to I will have a scout around and see if I can find them as well.



18 17 to go.



Voting on the poll has been fierce with, at last count, 15 votes and at present four systems are tied for the lead. Here’s the poll again if you haven’t yet voted.

When moderation fails – bring out the big guns.

Things are moving along nicely now on the painting front although I fear that things may come to a crashing halt soon as revision for exams loom on the horizon.

Today’s Infinity miniature is a Nomad Alguacile with sniper rifle. This model was a birthday gift a few moons ago from Rob N and was one of the nicest Infinity models I have ever had to build given that only her right arm needing gluing on.

That’s one more model down 19 18. If you haven’t already then please go to this post and vote for what system I should paint next.

All things in moderation Pt.3

The Moderator models from the starter set all come armed with Combi Rifles (the standard ranged weapon in Infinity) but to give them a bit of a boost if I ever decide to use a link team (this rule allows you to group certain models together to increase their effectiveness, good in this case as Moderators are shocking) so I bought a guy with a Spitfire.

This shorter ranged weapon has a nice damage output and RoF but most times can’t hit the side of a barn door.

I’m really not sure if I have mention this anywhere before but part of my colour scheme (the green and orange) was inspired by TicTac (product placement).

That is the last Moderator but my Nomad painting streak is likely to continue 20 19

All things in moderation Pt.2

Well, the weekend is out of the way and I have another Moderator to share. This is the last guy from the starter set that I had to paint so I am quite happy with that.

I have just realised though that I have forgotten to continue my funky countdown (as if you people care) so 23 22 21 20

Help wanted.

My New Years Resolution Painting Challenge (still need something snappier) is still coming along nicely but I can’t decide where to go next. My Joker gang for Batman was finished first and I am making a good dent into Infinity but wanted some suggestions for what to tackle next.

With that in mind I thought I would try a poll, which will run from now until my Infinity is fully painted, to choose my next gaming system to paint up.

I reserve the right to choose which force if it is for a system I play more than one in, this would be for Warhammer 40k, Relics, Flames of War and Warmachine. Just to give me a bit of variety.

I will promote this as much as possible during the coming weeks of Infinity painting and let you know the result when I post my last painted Infinity model. Feel free to spread the word and get the community to guide my brush.

Thanks for joining in.

All things in moderation Pt.1

In Infinity each of the factions can be played as either an overriding collective, such as Nomads or ALEPH, or as an individual group known as a sectorial.

The sectorials for the Nomads are based around the spaceships that the groups live on and the one I have chosen to play is Bakunin. This ship is a collective of religious nuts and anything goes body adaptation. The grunts on this ship are known as Moderators (this is all leading somewhere I promise).

In the Bakunin starter set you get three Moderators and I had already painted one for my demo force to use at the 4tK Gaming Open Day a few years back so I thought I would try and finish these models to get me back on track.

This Moderator has been adapted to be a Bunny girl, she has ears and even a little fluffy tail on the back of the model.

My continuation of this simple painting method is still working well and hopefully part two of this post won’t be too far behind.

NYE Resolution – Update

Another post, another mini. After the disaster of my Infinity mini count increasing I decided to carry on with this range as all my paints for the colour scheme were on my tray anyway.

Here is my Vertigo Zond, this laser guided missile launching SOB can be devastating when used properly causing cries of ‘BROKEN’ throughout the land.

Three Steps Forward

Firstly, apologies for the lack of updates. I live in accommodation at my place of work and clearly the NHS think its more important to spend money on patient care than ensuring I have a decent wifi connection. Hopefully things will get back to normal soon.

Doesn’t it always appear that just when you think you are getting somewhere you end up back where you started or worse. I have an update on my NYE Painting Resolution – this needs a snappy title so suggestions below – with some models from Corvus Belli’s Infinity range.

When we first started playing Infinity I chose ALEPH because I liked the style of the range but, as it was just after the second book had been released, there wasn’t a great deal of choice so I also ended up collecting Nomads.

These space faring travellers appealed to me on both a fluff level as well as the miniatures and I bought loads which have sat around unpainted. For todays update I present to you the Lunokhod and accompanying Crazy Koalas.

Now, although these came in one blister and the Crazy Koalas (which are the cutest mines you will ever see) are tiny models this is three of my Infinity list 22 21 20 19.

Sadly, whilst having a sort out of some boxes I found three unopened blisters containing 4 new models 19 20 21 22 23

Argh, I’m now more behind than when I started. Stupid hobby.
