I made a couple of mistakes but they worked better than what I was trying to do.

So I’ve cracked out the next mini.  Is it just me, or does he look a little bit like @dignity ??

 

White undercoat

Pants – AP Troglodyte blue for the panelling AP ash grey with 1:1 water mix for shading

Boots – AP necromancer cloak, with Fow black wash, then heavy FOW brown wash fro wear & dirt on the boots ( may need another coat)

Shirt – AP combat fatigues with FoW brown wash 1:1 water mix for shading.

Combat Vest – AP banshee brown with heavy FoW brown wash, then AP werewolf fur dry brush & AP Banshee brown highlight in a couple of spots.

Helmet – AP troglodyte blue with a wash of FoW black wash, FoW brown wash & water 1:1:1 mix to dirty it up for wear & tear.

Press panels on kit – FoW white with FoW black wash & water 1:3 light wash.

I might attempt to finish a ID card on the left arm….. not sure yet.

I am NEVER going to attempt to paint the OTT symbol again (badly done on the R/shoulder) it was a pain…….. I thought it might be easy after painting 30 yellow/black lightning bolts on my Norts……..  yeah right!

So new project.

 

As stated this will be an on-going sci-fi mini listing as I go.

I will state that, NO, I haven’t done the bases yet. This is because 1) I’m crap at basing, 2) I am uncertain if I want them in a)clear bases, b) the sci-fi mdf bases (from miniature scenery that I have quite a few of) or c) a generic sci-fi base covering….. I kinda want something that will easily blend in with H.I.N.T., H.I.N.T. BABH, Core Space, and maybe Infinity ( still haven’t decided if I want to play this one, but I do like a lot of the mini’s)

 

The First few posts will be the infinity minis that I have before I start to tackle the H.I.N.T mini’s

 

Any basing suggestions would be most welcome!

1st up are 2 x Infinity mini’s
