USAriadna: Grunt

Digging in on the Cadian Gate.
USAriadna!  I apologise for the rubbish photo as the camera on the iPhone is finding it hard to focus in on the model.

As I was painting this guy up- trying out different techniques- I was struck by how similar he looked to the Cadians of the Imperial Guard.  Which is just as well.  Because I've always had a soft spot for Imperial Guard....

But enough reminiscing- would you like a delivery of Freedom?

INFINITY AAR: 200pts- Ariadna vs. Panoceania: Frontline ITS2015

Spetsnaz... (credit: CoD4).
It has been too long since there's been a game of Infinity on this blog.  On this occasion I was lucky enough to host a game for two of my gaming buddies- one of whom has been steadily building an Ariadnan force.  With many weeks of ceaseless painting- it was time to see the force in action!

Ariadna seems to be the faction to beat (in some scenarios anyway) and I was very interested to see the match up.

I pulled up a chair, charged the camera and broke out the popcorn- it was time to be entertained...

Malignos with Combi-Rifle

Combi-rifle could be a sniper rifle
This guy came with the original Combined Army starter set from when I started Infinity a few years ago.  He has sat in his packaging forlornly watching a procession of figures get painted but now his time has come.

His right hand and weapon looks 'frosted'- and that is from excessive Testors Dullcote.  That's what happens so use it sparingly!

Yaogat Panzerfausts: Crassus 2.0 and Octavian 2.0

I hate batch painting but sometimes it just has to be done.

Today I finished off varnishing two Yaogats with MSV2 and panzerfausts.  My solution to everything camo and armoured.

They've been a real pain in the neck to finish (just a motivation thing- the figures are actually fine) but I'm glad I've only got another 5 new version Yaogats to go.  *sigh*
