Think you're improving, Barzam, if you compare that to the first few you posted in this thread. Great stuff

Thanks for the praise. I know I've improved considerably since I started painting last year. I'm think I'm slowly getting better though. Last night I finished up the Domaru Butai and the Tiger Soldier. The Tiger Soldier was my first attempt and basing using cork. It could've turned out better, but I think it was a decent first try. My touchups after the dipping didn't turn out as nice as I'd like them to and I'll have to redo the OSL. I'll probably try to clean them up some more tonight and hopefully I'll get around to posting some pics. Still no sign of those bases I ordered though.

EDIT- After reading up on the fluff for the Ahl Fassed, I'd kind of like to field more than just one of them. How would I go about doing that though since there's only that one model, and she's tiny. Who would be the best base to model a male Ahl Fassed? A Janissary maybe?


Automatically Appended Next Post:
Well, I'd planned to finish the cleanup on my two Yu Jing figures. That didn't happen. The reason being that I got my order from Underground Lasers. That was really fast since I just placed the order a few days ago. So, rather than finish the cleanup, I spent a good chunk of my evening building my containers and food stalls. A problem did occur though, one of the wall sections on one of the food stalls was the wrong one. So, unfortnately one of the sides has to go in backwards. I'm probably going to email them about it, but I'm also thinking I could just cut up some plasticard that looks like corrugated metal sheeting that I've got and just cover that side of the stall with it. Maybe make it all rusty and dinged up. The rest of the evening was spent building one o the new Gundam Build Fighters booster kits. Oh, I also got some of my bases I'd ordered. Just one more batch of them left to receive. Now when I get back home, I can get back to work on my figures. I'll probably work on the Kaplans next.

Anyway, here's a few pictures.


There's my Tiger Soldier post dip. I've done some cleanup, but I think I need to do a bit more. She doesn't look as nice as she did prior to the dip. I'll definitely have to redo the OSL on both figures when I get home. You can also see my attempt and using cork to look like busted asphalt. It doesn't look that good, but I'm sure the next time I try it, it'll look better.


There's both figures together. The Domaru is looking okay, but there's some white on his thighs I really need to clean up as well as on his torso. The OSL needs redoing also. You can see I also added a little Japanese flag to his shoulder plate.


Here you can really see the meat vendor stalls. They're pretty neat. The signs on the roofs can be removed as well. That sign is the same type Underground Lasers includes as a freebie as well. It's also the same type I got when I ordered my Tiger Soldier from them. I'll probably give the one that came in this order to Highlord Tamburlaine.

And Highlord Tamburlaine will happily accept it.

It will probably get overrun by a lizardman horde for such vulgar and blatant genocide and racism, but what else do you expect from dirty mammals?

Shame I don't really have any good sci fi lizard models.

Hey Barzam. Looking good

Can you please send me a PM with the issue (pictures would be great) with the BBQ stands? as far as I can tell our files are fine so it might be an issue with shooting an instruction video.

Hey cool, I didn't know you were a user on here. Thanks again for that promo sign in the order with the Tiger soldier. If you hadn't had that in there, I wouldn't have made my order for the stalls and the containers. You've got a PM with a link to the photo, too.

Hey all, I figure I'll post an update. I started working on 2 of my Zhanshis ladt night as well as my Kaplan sniper and my Shag-ji. I really like the Shang-JI, but man did I ever have to fight to get his stupid fins to glue in. The glue just WOULD NOT set, so the gins kept drooping down.
I also just received the Djanbazan and Janissarie I'd ordered. Their sculpts look way better in person, but there was a problem with my Djanbazan. I'd ordered the Combi Rifle one and while I got the right torso, they had the wrong arms in there. Instead of the rifle arms, the'd put the HMG arms in and those are totally incompatible. It looks like I'll have to contact CB. I hope there won't be any issue because it looks like the little colored missing parts slip is not in the package.

Just getting down some basecoats.



I've also re-sent my complaint to CB about the mispacked Djanbazan. The Guide for missing pieces that's stickied up at the top of this thread isn't correct. This thread was linked to me by CB.
http://infinitythegame.com/forum/index.php?/topic/18901-missing-pieces-complaint-codes-tutorial/
Maybe this one should be added to that thread?
I went ahead and attached the pic of the DJanbazan in question. For some reason the blue slip with the complaint code for the arms wasn't present in the package, just the white one.

Right behind you.

They recently updated their "missing pieces" policy, so the old one is out of date.
The blue slips are fairly new as well I think, so you might not have had them if the blister was an older one that just was sitting on a shelf or in a warehouse somewhere.

Okay, I've got a lovely little update here on my Zhanshis, but no update on my mispacked Djanbazan. I sent the email in the requested format with photos, but I haven't heard anything back. Hopefully I'll hear back soon.

I've finished base coating two of the Zhanshis now. They're ready for dipping, which hopefully I'll get around to on Wednesday. Oh, and I know they don't have any eyes painted yet. I'll be doing that after I've dipped and touched them up. Their armor will also be white to match the Tiger Soldier and the Domaru. I just based it in grey because cleaning up white can be a pain in the ass. I unfortunately was unable to work on my Kaplan Sniper, Janissarie, the third Zhanshi, nor the Shang Ji due to it raining today and I won't be able to work on them tomorrow for the same reasons. Can't spray paint in the rain, unfortunately.

Anyway, photos.



I also have some scenery stuff sitting around on my family room's coffee table that I like to mess with. So, I set this up.


And I guess this is why they're always running.

Okay, I've got another figure ready for the dip. This certainly isn't as detailed a paintjob as CB gave theirs, nor is it especially original or unique, but I think it works well enough. Plus it looks distinct from my Ahl Fassed.

I give you, my Janissarie

When you've got them all running like that, it looks pretty cool.

You know I'm not a big fan of the poses, but they do look pretty impressive when you've got the clump of them all posed together.

Did you ever get around to painting up your meat markets?

No, I haven't gotten around to any of my scenery yet, unfortunately. I will get to it, but I want to get through my boxes of figures first. Meat Stalls will be the first I paint up though, I promise you that. I'm just not sure what colors to paint them.

I did work on another figure tonight though.

My second Kaplan, the sniper is all painted up and ready for dipping. I'll be doing that Halloween night. The Janissary and Zhanshis got dipped tonight. I'll finish them up this weekend.

Well, it figures that I forgot to bring the Kaplan with me last night. Oh well, I'll wait to dip him until I've got some more figures anyway. Also, I finally heard back from Corvus Belli today about my Djanbazan parts. They finally reviewed my request and they said they're going to ship the parts to me and that I should receive a notice when they do. Hurray.

Woot, sounds like they've a decent customer service program (seems like most of the big mini/wargaming companies seem to, at least those I've run into).

I'll admit, I really like their designs. At first I didn't at all, but they've since grown on me quite a bit. I'm almost tempted to try making a QK team. I'm really hoping I'll wind up with some Druze for the holidays. Otherwise I'll just have to buy them myself.

It's okay. They got right back to me when I sent my initial request following the now out of date method listed in this forum, but it took them nearly a full week to get back to me when I followed the correct method. I was actually going to write back to them to make sure they even got the request. Well, at least they did finally get back to me. Now we get to see whose replacement bits I've requested get here first: CB's or GW's? (I had bought a Tau Devilfish for my Enforcers, but it was missing a drone sprue)

*sigh* I got nothing done Infinity-wise this weekend. About all I did was prime some MDF stuff and work on repainting a gunship for Deadzone. I was bad though and I just ordered the OOP Hellcat with HMG off ebay. I'm going to convert it into a sniper rifle. Or, at least I'll try to do that. I have this odd temptation to purchase all of the Hellcat figures. Next on my list of things to do after I complete my Yu-Jing, Kaplan, and Ahl Fassed, I'm going to begin collecting Hellcats.

Well, it's been about a week since CB told me they would let me know when they ship the parts. Nothing's arrived either. Well, I've been taking a bit of a break from Infinity this week. Call of Duty certainly ate up a big chunk of my painting time, too. But, it sounds like my Hellcat may have arrived, so I may be working on that this week. I just have to really decide if I want to go with teal markings for her, or orange?

Okay, as it turns out, I can both play COD and paint. I finally got around to priming and base coating my Shang Ji.



I'll admit, that's nothing all that special, but I don't want him to be, either. I wanted a fairly plain color scheme here and I think I've got that. I also wanted his palette a bit darker than the Domaru's. I'm not sure if I'll actually wind up lightening his plates after dipping him. Thoughts?

I know I said I really liked the Veteran Kazak, and I do. But, this figure is without a doubt my absolute favorite figure in the line. There's just something about this design that I love.

He looks good paired up with Mantic's Enforcers, too.

He looks pretty awesome, yes, and your enforcers are also quite nice. So excited to be getting some of those in a month or so (and I'm not seeing this "knee problem" people persist in bringing up either).

He really makes them look like genetically engineer hulks, awesome

I'll admit, it was a fairly shallow excuse to post pictures of my completed Enforcers. But, I do think he looks good with them.

Here's the focus of tonight's work.

I just did some basic preliminary work on them. Cleaned them up, pinned them to the bases and began attaching limbs. Their rifle arms will be left off until I've got the base coats all done.

So how many factions are you at now?

I think at this point I don't really need to bother buying anything- you'll probably pick it up at some point or another as it is!

I like the Shang Ji. Does go well with your Enforcers. I don't think I'd seen those Enforcers yet, especially not in person.

Maybe we can get a few games in around Thanksgiving, especially if the Missus ends up visiting her parents.

At this point? I believe I have at least one figure from every faction except Tohaa. I like some of their stuff, but at the moment they just don't interest me. My eventual hope is to have a playable force for every faction. Ha, that's going to cost me.

I have absolutely no problem trying to play a few games around Thanksgiving. By then the last of my Zhanshis should be done, so we can at the very least try some practice games using just line infantry.

Oh, and I have a painted shot of those two blobs of metal from the previous pic.

So, there's my first Imperial Services figure. As you can see, I gave him orange shoulder pads. Hopefully he'll look better once I've finished him up this weekend.

I think the bright popping colors help with Infinity and the whole anime vibe it gives off.

If the figures were just a little bit larger I might be convinced to take the plunge. I'm just not a fan of really little pieces.
