On an Express Elevator to Hell!!

Do you know mate I haven't added her to the list yet.. I think it's possibly an e-mauler? (purely on the basis that it looks like a maul! Really I have no idea... ) She did have some weird grenade type thing with her which I guess was either the repeater or e-mauler, but I didn't particularly like the look of it on the model so took it off.

Finished painting up another mini! This time a Kaplan Tactical Services. Again I bought this not really knowing what it can do in the game, but just purely because I thought it looked so cool. As it turns out though he is pretty handy (armed with a Spitfire in this case), and can also be attached to Haqqislam - so a double bonus!

I tried to paint him in such a way that he could be attached to the Haqqislam (so used green), but also wanted to try a less brilliant shade, so went for a lot more muted green, greys and browns. Hopefully he looks a bit more realistic as a future soldier, although I have to say the shades of green didn't come out particularly well with the photo.



Hopefully at some point a boxset will be released of these guys, allowing me to make a squad (and giving me access to their Adhesive grenade launcher!)

Any C&C very welcome!

You did capture a 'realistic future soldier' look - well done!

I love the Kaplans. My Haqqislam army is technically a bunch of Turks anyway, so damn right I'm going to be running as many of them as I can!

They're cool models and I'm looking forward to more sculpts of them... in the meantime I might steal some guys from MERCS to round out a full Kaplan team.

He looks great. Muted colors, no nonsense, and tough... exactly what you want them to be!

No critique, only something that caught my eye, in the pics it looks like that red stripe on the ground doesn't continue under his foot. MAybe it's just the blue highlight of the sole that looks like the ground.

While I'm not a fan of the model itself, the Kaplan guy is painted really well. This thread is also reminding me to get off my ass and finish up my Haqqislam.

@ Loki - Do eet... with pictures.

What kind of Spitfire is that? Its not a traditional Haqqislam version. It looks more like the Spitfires carried by ALEPH troops actually.

Thanks a lot for the comments guys!

@Baiyuan - thanks mate, that is now rectified (painted the red a little more under his boot)

Just a small update, a Ragik I painted up for the Infinity event I went to a few weeks ago. Again he was painted in a real rush, but I hope he just about manages to fit in with the rest of the Haqqislam in the force (they've been painted now over the course of a year or more so are starting to look a bit disparate).



This guy has been horrendously effective in every game I have used him in (except for a 1st one against Aleph, where he was 'iced' by an EVO repeater, and landed directly in front of an Aleph TAG in my opponent's turn - no prizes for guessing how that one ended!).

Next up, I'm getting tired of painting green, so some more Nomads!

Slick! I like how green the guys are, and he has a great pose and all. He's one of my favorite Hassassin models, even though I almost never end up using Ragiks. Maybe I should give them a try, it seems like Drop Infantry can really ruin someone's day. I like the white, and how the wings have a nice fade to them, but the gun could use a tad more attention, it just looks like you hit it with a drybrush, screamed GUN! and said complete. It's what you use to murder with! Take some pride in your weapon! Otherwise it's top notch mate!

Hahaha thanks mate really laughed at your comment about the gun! Yes it's completely true sadly, I should definitely give some more attention to it. Possibly too many years painting bolters in that manner!

Really cool, was chatting to the guy from Beasts of War at the Campaign Paradiso event a few weeks ago, and saw that he was snapping some shots of everyone's minis during the games. Anyway just found out that some of my Haqqislam had pictures of them posted on the website as part of their feature on it! http://www.beastsofwar.com/infinity/infinity-campaign-paradiso-tabletop-nation-event-part-1/


During this game, 'Snake Pliskkin' suffered from not being in cover. Actually my force suffered generally from being against one of those armies that has 32" guns shoot 34", x-ray bullets that go through cover, units which can reverse time and take back dice rolls that happened 3 rolls ago (with units seemingly coming back alive), and a complete lack of gaming etiquette to create a quite unpleasant atmosphere! I'm sure you get the picture - However rightly or wrongly I've reached the point now (is it an age thing?) where I just let such things slide over me. Terrain was rather poor against an unpainted army (that's it for the moans, really! ) - play as quickly as possible, smile and nod, concede at the first possible moment, move on to the next game...


Again terrain was poor, both of the people in this tower got critted! But my opponent was a great laugh, with a really nicely painted army and I thoroughly enjoyed the game despite many of my guys dying in a hail of bullets. What wargaming is all about and a reminder of why I play these games.

Some of the terrain set-up, which looked amazing! Made me really want to make my own Paradiso board...



Have to say though the best part of the day was definitely getting to meet the game's creators, and here about some of the development process. Carlos, one of the main writers of the book, has an extremely dry sense of humour and was just so enthusiastic about the new book and Infinity. The chap next to him (who you will have to identify from the back of his head! And I believe was named Juan(?) and had also come to the event from Spain) was also a good laugh and monitored us during the game, helping to clear up rules queries and things like that.



Finally, I asked Carlos if he could sign my rule book - I thought he had said to me 'who do you want it signed for?' so for a joke I said 'Saladin'. However, what he was actually asking was who would I like him to draw in the book! So, I got this done on the inside of my Infinity rulebook which is really cool (he drew it in a couple of minutes!), and a really nice souvenir from the event!



Overall the event was great fun and thoroughly enjoyable, and has also cemented my opinion that Infinity is going to continue to go from strength to strength. The amount of effort that has been put into it, the range of models, the rules, if there was any justice in the world at all (I think I really need some sense of perspective here - first world troubles and all that! ) it would be the premier game on the market right now and the gaming halls of the world would be resounding to the sounds of D20's hitting the table. Perhaps one day, we can only hope!

That sounds amazing. Glad you had fun other than the 'lolrulz' situation. I have to say, that Paradisio board looks awesome, but holy crap firelanes. There is a ton of open space on that board. My Lasiq would run out of ammo.

You have a good looking army chief, its good to see it getting some cred!

Thanks a lot for the comments guys, means a lot!

Chemical Cutthroat, yes mate I believe that is exactly what happened in the games - the highway looked awesome, but it was a massive boon to whoever had that side of the field. TBH the game playing was the weakest part of the event for me (I mean, you can play games any time, on better terrain) but it was so awesome to meet the game creators and hear about the new book first hand.

Real quickie of one of the other models I had to get finished for the event, a total reaction Kameel remote. Went for the combi rifles just because they looked better, although with the rules of the evo-repeater model I might get one of those painted up as well.



Next up a Nomad pic, and hopefully a WIP of the new board I've just started making!

How difficult was it to build? Because I'm planning on grabbing the pair, but if they need pinning, I'll have to put it off more.

They're easy as hell man.

The only problem I had was the backpacks not lining up right. Everything else is wicked easy. Pin the centerbit for added stability if you want.

Yes Loki they aren't the easiest model in the world to build, but you don't need to pin. It's not that heavy, and the centre of the model's weight is over the middle and its legs which means it would actually hold itself up under its own weight - a dab or 2 of thick super glue and it's not going to budge.

Cheers Chemical Cutthroat, yes I will probably get the other one painted up as an evo at some point (possibly in secret, so I can surprise my opponent in a game and 'ice' his AD trooper )

For the visor thing at the front I went from brown up through a citadel foundation yellow, and finally a highlight of golden yellow.

Finally I have a group shot of my Haqqislam, taken by IJW at the Paradiso event and very kindly of him posted over on the official forums:



Not sure yet what to do with this force - I'm up to 300pts now (with an Odalisque and Spec Ops to paint), but think I might turn my attention onto some Nomads for the time being. Also, I recently bought a TAG that needs to be painted..

On an Express Elevator to Hell!!

Another update, this time something a little bit different! A 'ram man' Uberfallkommando.



Rather than just use a standard colour scheme I thought I would try something a bit different! These guys are fighting on the TV (Maya?) networks etc so I thought it would make sense for them to have sponsorship! I used some of the smallest decals I have in the form of a Tamiya motorbike kit. In the future Brembo have branched out into sports wear, and possibly BBS are doing some kind of gene-splicing?

The colour scheme itself I borrowed from a real-life source, the MotoGP Camel Yamaha team from some years ago, which I thought would be a nice contrast to the grey fur of the ram.



I've got some ideas for other 'teams' for the fox-man and cat-man. Have to say though these models are awesome, and really liking the Nomad stuff I have done so far! Some of it is a little bit cheesy, but it has a character all of its own.

Any C&C very welcome!

Those decals are so damn sharp I thought you photoshopped them actually. I like the idea, but being a car guy and looking at it is rather disorienting.
