Hooray! More Infinity models completed. I’ve gone full bore with collecting these Haqqislam models. I just hope the gameplay is as enjoyable as the painting. Worst case scenario, I have a bunch of good looking Boba Fett inspired minis that look nice in my case. 😛

This is the very first model I bought for Infinity about two years ago and I finally painted him last week. I’m really happy with the way he came out. I mean look at this dude. Kick ass gun, cool futuristic armor, mysterious cloak? All the essential elements a sci-fi, bad ass assassin needs. The only thing I need to add is some dust at the bottom of his cloak. I’m practicing on some test models first before applying the effect to this guy.
Corvus Belli (the makers of Infinity the Game) keeps knocking them outta the park. I can’t say much else about this miniature that the picture doesn’t show. It’s just so bad ass! I was really intimidated to paint this, so I thought it’d be perfect to test out my fancy new Optivisor. The goggles helped to keep my work a lot neater, thus cutting back on touch ups in the end. Overall, I’m pleased with the blends and am especially happy with the color layout. Woot!
Here’s a shot of my Haqqislam force so far. I’ve got about 10 more minis waiting to be worked on but this should be enough to get me playing with my homies. So there you have it kiddies. So many models, so little time, so get painting. 😉
Say hello to Baby Hell, created by L’amour Supreme. A friend of mine gave me this creepy, little guy a few months ago and I’ve been itching to paint it since. I’ve always wanted to dabble in the vinyl toy medium but never found anything that inspired me. I’m thinking of doing it up in a Halloween color palette (greens, purples, and oranges) like my Super Dungeon Explore stuff. I’ll keep y’all posted with more pics as it moves along.

Baby Hell, Primed
My wife gave me a new toy for my birthday. Behold, I am the King of Geeks! I saw a review for this on Tabletop Gaming News a couple of weeks ago and was intrigued. My lighting situation at home is pretty lame and I thought this would help. I was right. Sure I look like a dork, but I’ve never been able to paint a model so easily. At first I thought the depth of field would make me dizzy, but it’s actually very easy to get used to. The strap is a bit difficult to adjust and is either too loose or too tight, but that’s just on my head (your noggin’s experience may vary). Other than that, it’s super lightweight and a great investment for any painter. You can buy the OptiVisor here and the LED attachment here.
Hello ya’ll! I’ve been slacking off on my weekly post schedule but a very cool surprise has reinvigorated me. The fellas at the Infinity O-12 podcast mentioned me and my blog on their listener email segment. Thanks again to Tom and Kip for the kind words. If you’re already into Infinity the Game or perhaps curious, you need to check out their podcast. So without further delay, here’s some more of my Haqqislam, Boba Fett themed list.
Haqqislam Remote, Rafiq – 360 view
“Baptized with names that come from the Arabic tradition, the Remotes are an option of economic and functional reinforcement for the Haqqislamite army.” -Infinity the Game
So this is my first attempt at doing a 360 animated view of a model. It was a pretty simple process (thanks to Photoshop and my lovely wife for teaching me how). I’m really digging the look and will definitely continue to use this format for high detailed models. I also tried out something new for the base. By using wood putty and a round sculpting tool I created a sand effect. The rocky outcropping that the Remote is standing on is made from made from a piece of cedar wood. You can buy a big bag of this stuff from a pet shop for super cheap and it’ll last you for a very long time. A litlle bit of dry-brushing and tada, it’s planet Tatooine! 😀
Haqqislam Gulam, Front
Haqqislam Gulam, Back
Here’s we have another Gulam infantry member. Same Boba-style coloer scheme as the first female Gulam I completed two weeks ago. Of course, I had to give him a head of blueish white hair. You’ll probably notice that I’m obsessed with white haired models; every army that I paint has at least one silver haired character. In this case I think it’s a nice break from the mostly warm color palette. Hooray for balance! 😀
I’ve got a bunch of Haqqislam models assembled, primed up and ready to get painted, plus a slew of other projects lined up for the future. Thanks again to the guys over at Infinity O-12. Until my next post, stay connected!
