Infinity: Riot Grrls

It has been a while since I've posted any models. In fact, I've painted a ton of 15mm WW2 stuff, but haven't got around to documenting it. Maybe I'll do that some other time.  In order to take a break from military camo colors, I dipped into my modest Infinity collection to paint some Riot Grrls for my Nomads.

I love the attitude of these models. I wanted them just because there's a model chucking the finger. I've never seen anything like it, though I'm sure there has got to be other stuff like it out there. Anyway, I painted them to match my Nomads color scheme.

They were certainly fun to paint, and I expect they'll be fun to play. I'm not really sure of their game function, to be honest. I think I'll end up with a lot of Infinity models just because I like their looks rather than their contribution to an army list.

I'll say these models were fiddly to assemble. Each of the girls with their visors down had four antennae to attach to their helmets. I did the right thing and filled those holes with putty. Fuck that shit. There's no reason for that torture. Additionally they have some butt armor that looked difficult to add to the model. Again... FTS... I puttied those holes as well. After that the models went together a lot easier.

All Infinity models are really delicate, at least the ones I have. The girl chucking the finger fell apart three times. The model joins are really well done, so re-gluing her was a breeze. I'll just have to use my telekinetic powers to mover her on the table. Otherwise, I think the air pressure of my approaching fingers will cause the model to fall apart if I try to physically move her.

So, more words than pictures this time. I'll get around to documenting my 15mm stuff, as there's lots of it.  Not sure what's up next, but I've got plenty of projects in the pipeline. I'll have to choose one and get going on it.

Nice work Jerry and a nice photo of the figs as well. I like it! See the rules I was talking about the other night would be perfect for these figures!

Thanks Tim! I'm for any rules that let me own cool figures!
