    Hello All,

    I've been looking for a long time now for a new miniatures game to get excited about after souring over the narrative direction of a certain other grimdark wargame. For me it is always the models that come first, followed by great fluff to bring those figures to life. Sadly given my recent sentiments I hadn't touched a paint brush in over a year.

    That said, the JSA starter set is just fantastic and came out right when I was looking and longing for a new gaming hobby to sink my teeth into. The new JSA are just beautiful sculpts with homages to many beloved animes of mine (GITS being number 1). Indeed the quality of most of the current JSA minis are truly some of the best miniatures in the world, in my opinion.

    Those wonderfully talented people at Corvus Belli have finally put together a faction that speaks to my aesthetic tastes and I have dived whole heartedly into this hobby, feverishly painting the JSA starter set over the last month or so. Thus I'd like to share my first foray into Infinity and the JSA with you, the Infinity Community.

    Cheers,

    archangeleong

    That's all for now folks!

    Just waiting for Domaru to be restocked in Australia and I'll be hard at work again...

    ... love to see some Ninja resculpts...

    ... Just great to have a hobby to daydream about again.

    See you around the Sphere!

    Well infinity fluff is also moving in the wrong "souring" direction especially for people who collected yuying in the past. but oh well good painting I especially like the O yoroi pilot. Super clean!

    Whilst I feel your pain, I'm more optimistic however about the YuJing situation. Firstly, I think JSA deserves its own identity as it seems a very distinct force aesthetically and thematically. Secondly, given the popularity of YuJing, I would hazard a guess and say that there will be some interesting upgrades coming in the near future that will quote nicely fill the gaps that the absence of JSA has created. In short the fluff change is an opportunity for some new goodies to come. :-)

    For those interested here are some Domaru Butai WIP pics.

    20+ hours work, but felt like I'd got into the Infinity groove after getting this one done.

    Outstanding and very clean paintjob. Is that the colour scheme from the guard of the Japanese Emperor in the Uprising fluff ?
    I am also very admirative of your freehand skills, I always have trouble painting numbers by freehand, wonder what kind of brush you use to perform that?
