Irnandinhos with Chain Rifles

Superior scavenger.
Booty level 1, scavenger, engineer, smoke grenades and 8 points.  What's there not to like?

Strelok K-9 Unit

Sensor and follow up with a Trench Hammer 
To complete the Strelok mini I had, I painted up his off sider- the K-9 Unit.

Dog Warrior- Dog Form

I'm not a fan of the concept but the in game utility of this model is undeniable- particularly in light of the new changes to Total Immunity.  

In it's second game it landed amongst a link team and spread chain rifle love around- taking out 3 link members and knocking down a sniper nearby.  Admittedly on the very good end of the probability curve but a threat that can't be ignored.

Strelok: T2 Marksman Rifle

Killing Snorks from afar.
I've been sick. 

So it's catch up time!  I present the latest Bolt Action-esque paint job with a Palmenmuster jacket.

Strelok: Submachine Gun

Eichenlaubmuster camouflage.
I've had this Bolt Action itch for a while now.  I do also have a huge lead pile to get through.

So I decided to try out some Bolt Action paint schemes on my Ariadna miniatures to freshen me up a bit from the pain that is trying to paint multicam.

Beyond Coldfront: Vassily Plushenko

You!  You should be painting!
I wasn't that enamored of the model... but now he's painted- I'm very happy with him.

I've gone with the usual darker, grimier camouflage style rather than the shiny NMM on the studio scheme.

Operation Coldfront: Ratnik

Stormshield not included...
Oh my goodness... it's been a long time since the last update.

I have spent the last few months painting terrain for a second Infinity table for a recent satellite tournament.  I had a stack of Warsenal terrain that needed doing - especially since it had sat in shrink wrap for 4 years! 

In any case- with the terrain (mostly) done- it was time to get back on track with TAK.

Beyond Coldfront: Frontovik Engineer

When is all this going end?
This guy was a grind to paint!  So many details!

But... persevered and finished him off.

Operation Coldfront: Tankhunter AP Rifle

Shooting at aeroplanes.
I wanted to speed paint this model... sadly, it had too many details that needed attention!

Veteran Kazak- AP HMG

5 Burst is Best Burst.
I was motoring along Operation Coldfront when it occurred to me that I needed a burst 5 AP HMG in any TAK link I was going to put down on the table.

Hence I got this guy done.

Operation Coldfront: Veteran Kazak AP Rifle

Chasing those Stalkers out of the Zone.
I wasn't that much of a fan of the model until I put some paint on it... now I love it.

I also made an effort to use saturated colours and thus accentuate the contrasts on the armour.  it really helps make the model 'pop' on the table top.

Operation Coldfront: Line Kazak- Rifle 3

Yeah, she mad now.
I'm steadily motoring my way through Operation Coldfront and experimenting with a multicam recipe I found online.  

I haven't got it down pat as yet... maybe after a few dozen models.

Operation Coldfront: Line Kazak- Rifle 2

On guard in The Zone
With a few hiatuses for gaming,  I'm steadily plugging my way through the Ariadnan half of the Coldfront box.

I'm very happy with the sculpts and they have been a pleasure to paint.

Operation Coldfront: Line Kazak- Rifle 1

Left handers seem to shoot better than right handers.
As I make my slow way through the lead pile of Coldfront, I'm trying to speed up my painting techniques.

First rule... not everything gets edge highlights!

Scout- Boarding Shotgun

Something to keep those Bloodsuckers at bay.
The Scout from Operation Coldfront finished in preparation for the post- Satellite cool down.

Strategos Series: MOAB2018- USAriadna ITSX

Credit: Jason Heuser

BLUF: 4th out of 16- sabotaged myself by not reading mission scoring.  One minor victory should have been a major and one minor victory WAS a major but not recorded as such (read how the bloody missions score before submitting forms!!) and my one loss could have been mitigated. 

My poor mission comprehension cost myself a podium spot.

Never again!

Oyoroi Pilot

I'm still mad at you... I'm not mad!
I painted this model as a Secret Santa gift for a member of my gaming club.
