    Work in progress of my Operation Icestorm project that includes Corvus Belli's Infinity Operation Icestorm and Beyond Icestorm starter sets, Top Down Terrain's Horizon Core display board, Black Sheep Industries' Cold Front terrain table, Micro Art Studio's Icestorm Play Mat, Warsenal's Camo and S2/5 Silhouettes, and some custom tokens I've made using Rockin Bead's Cabochons and toadchild's token creator. Progress has been slow, but it’s turning out fairly well. These are my first infinity minis and this is my first infinity project (have been painting minis for last ~2 1/2yrs).

    I will update this thread as I finish more of the project. Current self-appointed deadline is summer 2018. I'm doing this in my spare time, so it's been a while in the making.

    Please feel free to ask any questions or give any comments, criticisms, or advice.

    A picture of the drawer on the bottom of the stage. This was before I started doing custom tokens.

    Better Pictures of the stage. I have a few more details to pick out on the stage, but it is 98% done.

    More Close Ups of the stage:

    and with the Fusiliers:

    Close ups of 99% done Fusiliers. I have everything but their iris/pupils done, and am setting them to the side for now until I figure out how I want to accomplish finishing the eyes.

    Group Shot on the Display Board:

    Fusiliers were painted using these paints, and slightly modified Angel Giraldez recipes. Painted using Winsor & Newton Series 7 size 1, 0, and 000 brushes and Harder & Steenbeck Infinity CR Plus for base/highlighting of blue&red / Badger Patriot 105 Airbrush for priming.

    Obligatory Palette pic. I use a porcelain palette, that most of the times has an icepack underneath. This causes a slight condensation and cool temperatures, that allow the paint to stay wet for hours. I tend to prefer this method over a wet palette (which I also have) because it lets me play with much more extreme dilutions, washes, and glazes. This photo is after a 6 hour session of painting, and as you can see the wells are still fairly wet.

    And here are some of the custom tokens I am working on.

    The pictures below show how the double sided Regular Order/Unconscious tokens look. I will be converting more of the tokens to double sided tokens for convenience.

    That's all for now, more updates coming soon...

    Again, please feel free to ask any questions or give any comments, criticisms, or advice.

    That is awesome the setup and love the way that you combined the box into the setup. The display board is amazing as well even with the models that your working on makes them look good. Excellent work!

    Thanks everyone, it motivates me knowing people like what I’m doing. This month I’m trying to get the Alguaciles done. (Figured I would do them in the order they show up in missions) Expect updates ~monthly at the least.
