Moving and combing a thread from the old forum. For a very long time (around two years) I couldn't decide how I want to paint my Yu jing force. In the beginning I wanted jade coloured force but the other schemes grew on me as well and I had a problem choosing one. Long story short, thanks top Infinity army painter and motivation from @Section9 I decided to finally paint some models and to pick a sinister, mainly black scheme. Jade coloured test model. Pondering about my army scheme I did some head swaps and conversions, mainly I fixed CB screw-ups (like sticking out swords or sliding miniatures with HRL). In the end used Gujia pilot as a test model for a new scheme. Last year I had this goal to paint at least one model per month but somehow I wasn't able to make it work (I did a lot of terrains though). Still this year I decided it's a high time to get my models painted. I used to be a part of the warseer community and there was a certain member who had a curious painting motivating method. I borrowed it and proposed it to my local infinity community in a fashion. So basically, there are 12 moths and each month you have to paint at least single declared miniature. If any of the participants fail to fulfil this goal, he has to buy one miniature blister to a random member (his choice) of the motivation group. Still, the goal is to have at least 12 painted miniatures at the end of the year, not to buy other people new miniatures ;) My january miniature - WIP Hsien. Still a lot of work. Personally I'm not a fan of strong contrasts but since I went for a dark scheme I want my minis to be visible on the table. I'll probably dull it a bit with washes and pigments in the end. Also I think I'll go for a jade cloak instead of a brown one.
