    Hi!

    I have ben in this hobby for a long time now. Will try a log of my building/painting for infinity here...

    The Shasvastii starter was my second infinity "army", but I almost never played them. Around the time for TAGline (ITS 8) I started up them again, feeling enthusiastic. Painted up the sphinx, got some other models partly painted but when datatrackers arrived in ITS 9 it killed my enthusiasm...

    But now my enthusiasm has been rekindled and I'm returning to my old mistress :-)

    I really want to magnetize my minis nowadays so sadly the old bases aren't usable anymore. New bases also gives me some space to write unit names (ex: JAYTH SMG or CALIBAN SF) as there is going to be a lot of proxying and really old models.

    I like the old models for their weirdness and inhuman looks and am a bit afraid the new models will be "humans with rubber masks" so I'm stocking up on old models, even has managed to get my slimy fingers on 4 of the old tentacle remotes :-D.

    My old starter

    I've been building and playing, but no additional painting yet. With completely new basing I'm really thinking about new painting scheme, something fast with wood stain as middle step...

    4 games, 3 victories and 1 draw so far

    Right now my plan is to build this list, then batch paint it.
    So I have to rebase a malignos FO, a slave drone, an Ikadron and build a noctifer ML.
    Then it's painting time. And I do have another list waiting for second wave...

    I also cleaned up this guy in acetone and rebased him. So now all minis are prepared for priming :-D

    Im liking your SMG design. The big suppressor on the end makes it almost look a little like an uzi.

    Got some primer on 8-) 20190512_183823.jpg
    @Dedled Thanks! I tried a more advanced version first, but this is easy and quite obvious. So I'm pleased :-)
