    Hello forumites!

    I've decided to create a little thread for myself here – just to keep track of anything I paint and where my current armies are at.

    To kick things off in a totally unrelated manner: Here is something I worked on over the holiday break as a breather from infinity, although still pretty closely related!

    I ordered a Lightbox, hopefully it will get here soon and I can begin to take actual pictures. But in the mean time here are some pictures of a Father knight I painted some time ago, I hope to expand my military orders over the spring

    drop some C&C or just enjoy some amateur work. I hope to update this pretty regularly!

    @MikeTheScrivener This is very good for so called amateur work. You currently paint at a better level than me & I consider myself an amateur.

    Thanks! Some of the other work I see on here really blow me out of the water. It's both discouraging and encouraging at the same time!

    Same here but it seems that has not deterred us from continuing painting.

    Got in a little tonight – trying to finish everything I own for Varuna before more comes out. I think I'll start on some MO after these guys are done

    I went for kind of a reverse scheme on the cloak/under armor. Kind of like the inverse of my Kamau, who I have yet to post here but will find time to.

    @MikeTheScrivener Your Cobras are ready to strike the enemy where it hurts and they'll look good doing it.

    That is an excellent plan, it's how I managed to get most of my early Infinity collection painted!


    I like making reversible cloaks, two different patterns on the inside and outside.

    Thanks for the kind words guys!

    I've been kind of slow – been playing a lot of video games lately and usually take a little break after a tournament to cool off. But I finished the other Zulu and got started on Joan V2. I think I'm going to try and get aggressive at finishing the knights. I'm excited to bring some big boys to the next event.

    @MikeTheScrivener Looking forward to seeing Joan 2.0 finished.
    What does she look like before you put her together? Which parts are separate and how does her front torso look because I can't find any picture of that section of the model.

    The back cape, the raised leg, the two arms and her crown/hair are all separate. Her front torso has tabard on if I recall correctly, so the boob plate and armor are covered. I can confirm tonight when I sit back down to get a little more done on her

    That would be great thanks. So just to confirm, back cape + raised leg (separated from the rest of the body/model) + both arms + head/hair? Is the Spitfire separate from the arms as well?

    all that sounds right – the spitfire is connected at the trigger hand and you have to line up the supporting hand with the other arm. Her chest is half covered by a tabard ala Hospitaller. It isn't very wide so there is some side boob-plate action going on.

    got a little more done tonight:

    I'm looking forward to the weekend when I can just sit down and really put some work into it

    @MikeTheScrivener Thank you.
    I think she is looking great so far and will be a nice addition with your PanO force.

    Thanks guys! I was able to finish her this weekend, along with a game. I ran her as a duo with the Santiago KHD in supplies. She kicked some serious ass, killing a muyib, going frenzy, and killing 3 more muyibs.

    I wanted to give her ore of a "goth" look compared to normal blonde Joan, hopefully my Lightbox should be here any day now and I can get some decent shots of her face.
    I'm currently debating on spending ~40 dollars on metal dice that are color scheme appropriate to really complete my army

    @MikeTheScrivener Glad to see that your lightbox came in the mail. Hope it last you for many, many years to come. Same goes for those dice.

    I've been gone a super long time, I know. I haven't painted too much recently. A recent tournament got me back into the swing of things with some VIRD on the table. I finished this croc man and the Echo Bravo I just got in the mail is up next
