So, as ever I’ve somewhat neglected my blog in favour of Facebook so some of what I’ve got to show here may have already been seen. Anyway, I’ll kick off with the last job that I finished during the past week, some more Infinity stuff. A handful of Nomads and a couple of civilians
A squad of Hellcats.
The shoulder insignia are over painted decals. I originally left it at
just the Nomad emblem on the left shoulder but it seemed like there was
something missing. I decided to scan the Hellcat emblem on the blister
card and add that to the other shoulder and did the job. I always over
paint my home made decals as they aren’t the best resolution and the
colours just aren’t bold enough.
Next is an Intruder (clearly a sniper) and a
Reverend Custodier… no idea when it comes to Infinity so it’s just a
cool model to me.
Finally there are two civilians. Love the
corporate type with her hidden briefcase SMG. Gogo Marlene appears to be
a singer. The client wasn’t too sure about the yellow clothing of the
studio paint job but when I came to paint the model I couldn’t get the
yellow out of my mind. I didn’t want to use red or blue as that might
tie in too closely with one of the factions I’d done. So I stuck with
the yellow but decided to go for pink hair to really play up the J-Pop
style of the model.
I also started work on my next job which is a
few pulp items. More evil Nazi types to go with a set that I painted
some time ago (and had completely forgotten I’d done!). They’re Bob
Murch sculpts and have been a real joy to do, especially after the more
labour intensive Infinity pieces. The Red Skull is by another sculptor
but I’m not entirely sure who. Just two more of these black clad fellas
to do and then onto a Knight Models Captain America and an old school
