Just finished a 28mm Sci-Fi figure – a Nomad Spectr Hacker from Corvus Belli. It’s from their Infinity game, but it can be used in a lot of different games including the 5150 titles from Two Hour Wargames.
I’ve been slowly changing the way I paint miniatures. I used to prime only black or gray, but now I use Zenithal highlighting as the primer step. This type of preparation makes adding shadows & highlights much easier.
I’ve not changed brands of paints, I still use paints from Reaper & Vallejo. The inks I’ve always liked to use are the FW Artist Acrylic inks from Daler Rowney. They are available both in transparent & opaque colors. I buy mine from Michaels, but you can also get them on Amazon.
The biggest struggle I have with Corvus Belli Infinity figures is many of them have small parts that practically impossible to pin, so I have to rely on the strength of the glue’s bond to keep the figure together.
I continue to base my Science Fiction figures on clear bases from Litko. This is because of the multitude of mats available to play on. I know it is purely a personal preference, but it is distracting to me to have a figure moving about the corridors of a space ship with a small garden around his or her feet.
As always, comments are very welcome.
I leave you with one last picture. I usually do not include photos where the flash on the camera went off. This one is when I tried to take a shot at tabletop level.
