Infinity Dakini

 The Tactical Remotes of the Special Situations Section were designed to cover a wide range of combat functions, constituting the main core of ALEPH’s intervention forces. Though the decision to use remote semi-autonomous units as the basic elements of a combat force is somewhat surprising, it is supported by ALEPH’s access to advanced state-of-the-art technologies.

This technological capacity guarantees the Tactbot’s combat programming makes their prowess equal to any human soldier in the Sphere. Their speed, stealth systems and tactical software qualify them for the highest level assaults as well as for the most specialized anti-terrorist operations. In addition, they can lead to defensive combat actions and security operations, both civil and military. The adaptability of Tactbots is a valuable resource to the S.S.S. but it is their fearless robotic nature that makes them an efficient and unstoppable force. This is why the combat remote soldiers of ALEPH were named after the Dakinis, the powerful and fierce servants of the goddess Kali.

I recently painted this mini as a batch for a private customer. This colour scheme is hard to push as it's basically white monochrome with some blue brake parts, so I decided this time to add a slightly purple reflect from one side to add a bit of warm contrast.

Tabletop quality.

Infinity Andromeda

 Andromeda (in Classical Greek: Άνδρομέδα / Androméda, which means “she who rules men”) was, in Greek mythology, an Aethiopian princess, daughter of King Cepheus. Made a victim by the excessive pride of her mother, the queen Cassiopeia, Andromeda would be chained naked to a rock as a sacrifice to the sea monster Cetus. Rescued by the hero Perseus, she would become his wife and rule by his side.

Notes from Thamyris the Aoidos to the SSS Information Service: “Andromeda, the spy who loved and almost destroyed me! As a member of ALEPH’s and the Steel Phalanx’s secret service, she is always taking risks because she knows she can live and die several times over, meaning she’ll never say no to any mission proposed to her. She loves diamonds because she knows they’re forever, but no matter how many you have you’ll never be able to buy her because not even the Human Sphere would be enough for her. Loyal to the bone, she would even commit betrayal if it would help her accomplish her mission, always confidential and highly classified. But none of this will matter once you see her, because Andromeda is a vision of beauty to die for and for whom you can‘t help but fall at her feet in worship.”

The Sophists are the Intelligence agents of the Steel Phalanx. Although in the beginning, the Phalanx relied on the Operations Sub-section, as time went by it began to gain greater relevance due to the escalating conflict against the IE; circumstances had changed. Once it started gaining a more global presence in the Paradiso theatre of operations, it became necessary to create a specific Intelligence group capable of working together with the Assault Sub-section’s operatives and their special characteristics. Andromeda is the best of the Sophists, or maybe she is just one of the best because the truth is that we don’t really know them all that well due to their duties as spies and secret agents. Just like the rest of the Homeridae, Andromeda has a splendid body, but the first thing that stands out is her eyes, mysterious and captivating, the eyes of an angel - or of a demon. Because Andromeda can be either one depending on what she considers to be convenient for accomplishing her mission. This woman thinks things through, has a clever and calculating mind, and superior tenacity similar to the most resistant Museum. She is a spy so you should never trust her. Lying is for Andromeda just as natural as breathing. And if she seems to be fragile and helpless, pay careful attention to that briefcase she carries everywhere with her. That is Cetus, her loyal, portable monster, her ace in the hole, an advantage that will tear your throat out before you are able to ask her what is going on.

I recently painted this mini as a batch for a private customer. A great mini a bit hard to build with the big mechanic dog. I tried this time to add a bit warmer colour with some purple reflect that I expect to look amazing in the table matt when playing.

Interview at Figure Mentors Magazine (issue 18)

Hi guys.

A couple of weeks ago Figure Mentors released their Fantasy Magazine Issue 18 and, for the first time during past years, I'm inside a magazine again. I do not participate so often writing articles or being interviewed, I'm not a mediatic person, but sometimes I accept to do it and honestly, it was a pleasure to chat with Jay.

Figure mentors wrote a 10 pages interview where we talk a bit about minis, live, future... everything in the usual ambience we can have around a bear or a cup of tea :-D I really recommend you to read it (and for sure, all other articles, that are excellent as always).

Right down here you can see the cover of the magazine and a couple of random pages from the interview just to taste it ;-)

A month with no news.

 Hi guys. It has been an entire month without any post.

I'm fine, I'm alive xD. Just took a break, I extended a bit my Xmas holidays and been a bit hurt by the dentist (2 screws, I thought it was less, but...).

Obviously, 2020 was not the best year for anyone (well maybe yeah if you are a speculator or so...), neither for me. I couldn't accomplish my year's objectives of being more communicative on my networks. Also, Pandemic and having a child at home without school doesn't help, but soooo many people had this issue like me. At least I could train at home so I achieved to hit my goal of doing Crossfit 100 days (in fact, 151 days, 56 more than last year!). Sports are very important to keep healthy!

My purposes for 2021 (seeing how it's going) are kept alive and working. I started my first commissions of this year and hope to become faster as days pass and I can recover my routines.

Let's see if we can have some events this year, I really miss you and a lot of friends I can's see as often as previously.

And you? did you accomplish any of your year's goals?
