Infinity: knights #3

Evening Guys,

This update is a day later than normal so my apologies.

This update sees my return to infinity after a break to work on deadzone. I'm Plodding away slowly on my PanO stuff. Below are some WiPs:

First up my near finished magister knight, he just needs a bit more tidying up and a base making:

Next up is one of the models I've picked up as part of my plans to expand the PanO force in Operation Icestorm. The force will be the generic PanO list to give me more variety than my more specialized Military Order force.

So we have a sneaky Hexas with a sniper rifle, love the sculpt. She is still rather WiP:

Thats it for now, a rather short update. I will be back over the weekend with a bit of scatter terrain and a few more WiP Infinity bits.

Entering the Deadzone

Afternoon guys and girls,

A normal weekly update for you here. This time some pictures of my much threatened WiP Deadzone strike forces.

I've had a starter set of Enforcers and various other deadzone bits such as Terrain and a gaming mat knocking around for a while now. After having a few games with Nife and Rictus at our last meet up and the game itself going down well I figured it was time to pull my finger out and get some painting done.

Here are all the Enforcers that have got paint on them so far. There are only 4 more that need painting plus 2 sentry guns. Most of the below guys still need tidying up and finishing touches on them:

2 Regular Enforcers and a Sniper

Assault Enforcers - Used red to show their speciality


I have gone for more basic paint jobs than on my infinity stuff so no mixing of colours and other more time consuming methods. I have however been weathering them with sponge.

Next up is a WiP Mercenary Asterian Character, Nastanza:

Speaking of Asterians after the success of our games I took the plunge and ordered the Sky Shadow Infiltration force bundle from Mantic. This gave me an entire Asterian starter force plus a box of Asterian specialists, the new expansion book, wave 2 cards and a pre release character for a rather good price.

I have yet to build the specialists but have managed to get the starter box built:

I do rather like these guys, very much remind me of star wars battle droids or the Geth from Mass Effect. Fluff wise they are all drones controlled from afar well apart from the commander who takes to the field in person.

Rather looking forward to getting some paint on them.

In my final nerdy moment of the week I stumbled upon some trinkets for about 30p each:

Me being a bit of a green lantern nerd I picked up the rings of my favourite corps as a laugh :P

Thinking of Comics, my normal partner in crime in comic book related stuff(he did get me started on them again after all) Mr Feral has started up a little blog where he reviews some go check it out if you like the odd superhero Sharky Reads Comics

Pre-emptive dungeon crawling

Afternoon guys and girls,

Something resembling normality is beginning to settle now in the real world so I've had some time to do a little hobbying.

Given my focus on painting and terrain of late(some stuff will appear in a future update) I have decided to do a little sculpting as a change of pace. It is also a change of setting with me moving to fantasy from my normal sci fi main stay.

Recently after some nagging from Nife I pledged for Mantics latest; kickstarter Dungeon Saga. It is the sort of little self contained fantasy game I have been after for a while as I've long had the itch to make a few fantasy things but without being tied directly to GWs universe.

Now its still over a year until I will actually have the game however mantic are putting the rules for using some of their Kings of War models in the game. After having a look through their undead list I hit upon the idea of Making a Revenant king and his entourage of Revenants, a female Necromance/sorceress, Wraith and eventually a Vampire and Liche.

So off I trotted to Mantics website and ordered a load of 25mm bases(same size and dungeon saga will be) a box of skeleton warriors and a few other bits(including an Asterian Deadzone faction more on them soon)

I also ordered a pack of warmachine models to use for conversion fodder.

So Enough Rambling, here is the heavily WiP Female Necromancer/Sorceress

She is based on a Cryx Witch Coven model from Warmachine. It scales in nicely with the mantic stuff and I rather liked the pose and armour. I have removed the original head and had a crack at sculpting my own for it. So far I'm pretty pleased with her

Next up is the Revenant king:

This guy is converted from stock Mantic Skeletons with GS and plasticard bits. I still need to sort out his arms but plan to have him with a 2 handed sword.

These have beena nice change to work on, I plan to have a selection of expanded enemies made in time for the release of Dungeaon saga next year so these will be rather sporadic updates over the next 12 months.

Thats it for now guys, I'll be back with a possible update mid week
