(April 2016!) Due to assorted forum glitches this thread was locked for some time, plus I'd not been painting many Infinity models so this thread didn't get updated. That's about to change... I did get some models painted in the intervening two years which I'll come back to later, but first some new stuff. Ages back in the thread I was converting a Szalamandra to have a rotary cannon and a better ammo feed, and finally painted it a couple of months ago using my new (and very cheap) airbrush. First up was rebasing it on to one of Antenociti's 55mm bases. This was undercoated with Vallejo white and grey primer, basecoated with Vallejo Air Bright Bronze and then given a dark brown wash. A day later when this was fully dry, I masked out the flat areas to do the yellow stripes. It was then grimed up a bit by airbrushing Vallejo black dip over the middle and around where the feet were going to go, plus painting some on along the edges of the yellow and in the indentations in the yellow areas. The areas under the feet were then scraped back so that the feet would be glued to resin instead of to paint. The indentations in the brass-etch LoF compass bar were painted with a green-yellow wash. The Szalamandra was separately undercoated black and given a small amount of shading with the airbrush. Note that the pin on the top was added recently, and happens to measure 67mm from the ground for easy eyeballing of the S7 Silhouette. The rest of it is brushwork, using quite a bit of parallel lines of paler grey, inspired by Angel's book. At this stage the model was largely done apart from picking the head out and adding some OSL lighting. As it was about to be used in a tournament i decided to varnish it as-is and come back to the rest later. Unfortunately I started off with Vallejo Satin Varnish which turned out to be very matt and completely destroyed the subtle contrasts of the greys. Fortunately going over it immediately with Gloss salvaged it! So the Szalamandra is now done apart from the head, lights and doing a Tunguska pennant on the computer to go on the banner pole. Yay painting!
