Still Lost In Infinity

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! 😀

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!

Lost in Infinity

I recently had a case of shiny object syndrome. It’s a condition that myself and many other hobbyists suffer from. The evidence lies in the multitude of unfinished projects I have going on at once.  My most recent distraction is Infinity the Game. It’s a science fiction style game with an anime feel. The models are fantastic and the game seems to be pretty fun.

So I’ve decided to collect the Haqqislam faction. Here’s a little blurb from the website:

“Haqqislam, the New Islam, is a smaller power which possesses a single star-system only, Bourak. Separating itself from fundamentalism, Haqqislam bases its culture on an Islam which is humanist, philosophical and in continuous contact with nature. Biosanitary Science and Earthformation are the two major strengths of Haqqislam, which includes the best schools of medicine and planetology in the Human Sphere.”

This Gulam infantry member is my second prototype for color palette, the first was pretty, meh. The color scheme inspired by Boba Fett. I’m really digging it and am looking forward to finishing up some more stuff from this line. Aside from this I’m also working on Super Dungeon Explore, Hordes: Minions, and a vinyl toy that a friend made. Ugh, so many models so little time. Monty, out!
