Not the easiest model to paint in the set, also because I was feeling a little burned out, but here is the Mobile brigada in all its microscopic redness.
The multi-rifle with flamethrower has been especially tricky: for some reason I couldn’t get it to look like metal, and even now it’s not completely there.
Unlike for the Zero, I kept the effects somewhat understated. But the figure is done to an acceptable standard, and the sculpt is awesome enough, I hope, to qualify for Azazel’s Awesome August community painting challenge.
Here’s a picture of the complete starter box. After a few more tyranids, I’ll be taking a break from sci-fi for a while and go back to orcs and wolves.
I have finished the other two Alguaciles in the Nomads starting box.
These have been the least pleasant to paint of the whole set, but by no means unpleasant. While the woman in the centre is about the best I think I can make from these models, the other two could be improved, but for the moment I am happy to leave them like this. There are more versions of the Alguaciles with different equipment and poses and I may end up painting some more in the future.
A wip picture of this Nomad sniper, mostly because the front armour plate will be partly covered up by the rifle when the model is assembled.
I wanted him to look a little bit darker and stealthy-looking than the Alguaciles, with their red uniform, but I still mixed a little bit of red on the armour to tie the miniature to the others. You can see it better on the back, perhaps.
They surely lack the variety and sheer inventiveness of Confrontation, but as for sheer class I consider Infinity miniatures like the cyberpunk Rackham.
On the other hand, I see little possibilities of cross-overs with 40k or anything grimdark. Perhaps only in the Van Saar direction, and this particular mini could be painted as a Vindicare assassin, I guess… How do they fare here in the community?
