Looks as though she's tripped over that unfortunately placed bit of debris, no surprise though! I bet those hee...

No, no I won't go there!

Nice mini, disappointing posture and posing which I find is a trend with a lot of CB's stuff. The paint work, as always is a sight to behold though!

Here's to another 100 pages of fun Infinity discussion! combat heels and all

Well, CB Miniatures are meant to be more over the top since they're rooted with manga.

I get more annoyed when they don't put clothing where it really should be... most of the time at least

This is a great piece though. May consider getting it to add to my new Nomad starter when it comes out. Also, three cheers for grav stabilised heels!

Another one to puzzle over the placement of the LoF marking on the base I see!

Not a fan of the pose. It is one of those "in the middle of doing something, or possibly tripping" poses that doesn't seem to have a clear line of action and just makes the composition feel a bit muddled. Over the top and dynamic posing is one thing, but the pose should have a clear purpose or line of action it is following. But when you experiment they can't all be winner.

Luckily not something I really need to pick up, so I can safely give it a pass.

Kinda like Ashcroft, but not enough to go out of my way to get a model I have no use for on the table.

When should we expect to see painted OSs?

Hmmm... the formal suit and plunging neckline feels a bit odd. I dunno. It just feels off to me. Though it's interesting to see civilian vlothes that aren't tattered robes or something.

The Civie clothes are what sells that concept for me. I still want male with one of the Brief Case guns.

Lol really? Its the far future, do you honestly think looking like a supermodel won´t be super cheap and widely accessible? Hell, it might be a s simple as a supplement they add to the local water supply! And just like that health issues become nearly non existent.

Beyond that, sexualized models are the norm for infinity. There´s a tragic lack of beer bellies on the male models wouldn´t you say?

Not for lack of effort on the part of Infinity players. Ask about the Fat Yuan-Yuan sometime. Infinity is not really the far future; it's about 200 years forward from now. And Absolutionist was being sarcastic, BTW.

Zatanna? Only that character has tails on its coat.

Looks like an AD lower half and a pole dancer upper half. That is what I see as odd. The unit has a so-so profile, and now a mini to match. The tactical rock could be safely and easily removed. The mini could make a decent proxy, if nothing else.

I cannot not see that little fiber just above the elbow of the left arm. It's the with scenery photo.

Where is that model from? Was it an event exclusive or an ITS prize?

I like Miranda. Her outfit reminds of Fiona from Tales from the Borderlands. Though a sexed up version of it

Honestly that is a pretty ugly model, even on a technical point its pretty ugly compared to what they usually do. The pose is weird, the face looks like a mid quality N2 model. Honestly, Infinity has dropped the ball and kicked it to the other team. All this emphasis on goofy looking sexy models....however I have been able to focus on my HH army so silver lining and all.

The CSU is the bonus preorder/first run model from Icestorm.

Today's sniper shot:

Could this be something from Haqqislam? Or by chance the Blackjack? That green colour scheme fits to both Haqqislam and Ariadna, I think.

It's not a Blackjack. We still haven't seen the dossier for the Blackjack.

The green is CA green. Look at the layering of the armour, it matches Shasvastii gear.

Was reminded from the official forums that the Raicho Pilot is a dual set, with a Shasvastii Sphinx pilot as well.


This is the release list for January and February.

Is that a shas operator?
Sphinx is remote presence.

Or actually a pilot?
I.E. They're going to make it a manned tag & therefore we can eventually expect a new mini?

The current sphinx has the worst pose ever & its too bad cuz it's a cool sculpt.

Is that a natural 21?
