Infinity: Crusader Brethren

Good evening Guys,

Time for the normal weekly update, as ever it is another Infinity themed one.

I have been plodding along with my first crusader brethren, this one is armed with a HMG I also have one armed with a combi rifle in my painting queue. Bar a few finishing touches he is pretty much done:

I have really enjoyed painting this guy, think he is my current favourite of all the models I have painted so far for the game.

Here is a sneak peek of my next model, a WiP Trauma- Doc:

and the rest of the current painting queue:

Entirely Infinity stuff again......

I have a meet up with Rictus and Nife rapidly approaching where we will actually be playing 40k, I have a few planned additions to my Tau mainly repainting an Ethereal and fire warrior squad that I stripped an age ago.

I keep getting them out to paint and literally managing 5 or 10 minutes on them before getting bored and going back to whatever infinity or deadzone model I am currently working on. Mean while Rictus is blazing away on his Daemons, the speed of his painting has begun to scare me haha.

I have said it before but I will say it again I seem to have lost all interest in GW stuff, it barely motivates me to actually want to convert or sculpt anymore, something which used to be a huge part of the GW side of my hobby time.

Times change I guess, seems boardgames and skirmish games have become more my thing


  1. I am in the same boat, large scale game like GW do no do it for me, small simpler skirmish games, ones offs, character driven and board games only get my attention.

    1. tbh even Forgeworld stuff doesn't do it for me anymore.

      I might have to check out some of the knight models range that you have been working on especially now as they have done Dr Doom. Just need them to do Sinestro too and I shall be happy :P

    2. I has Doom will be putting him on the blog soon :D

  2. Great work Si, good to see you still at it :)

    Know how you feel about GW/larger games. Always found skirmish and boardgames alot more fun, plus when it comes to painting and converting you can spend more time making something special and would stand out, rather than getting lost in an army.

    Keep it up man.


    1. Jesus its the kiwi!!!
