Mortarion, Step by Step; Week 8

My plan was to finish Mortarion this week, but It was impossible. One of the hardest miniatures I ever painted is fighting back against my efforts so I'll need some more days to finish, but It's almost done!

Let's see the steps done this week:

Infinity: Naga

Naga is the colour scheme test for a new Army We're painting for Infinity, The game: Aleph.

Customer does request some extra blue colour to add to the classic white colours, so First, we painted one single miniature to fit the scheme and get some approval. Naga was the chosen one.

"The conditions on Paradiso require troops with special training and abilities, able to adapt to this savage planetary ecosystem. The duty of the Nagas in the Special Situations Section is to launch offensive operations independently or in tandem with regular forces, striking into the enemy-held territory by ground, water or air.

Since their creation, they have performed numerous raids with great success thanks to their first class stealth, night combat and terrain navigation techniques. They also work as a special exploration unit, using advanced cartographic devices to acquire better environmental knowledge than that of native inhabitants. Nagas are also prepared to run Direct Action and early enemy contact operations. They use non-conventional warfare techniques in all of its forms, both guerrilla and anti-guerrilla warfare, Evasion and Escape, sabotage, counter-terrorism, and their speciality, jungle combat. Since the opening of the Paradiso front, they have built up an incredible reputation in high-risk operations against the Combined Army. Trained on Acontecimento and forged in Paradiso’s emerald jungle, Nagas perfectly identify themselves with the reptilian Hindu mythical beings they are named for. Their greatest virtue is the element of surprise, displaying a disconcerting genius to always appear where a hole in the enemy’s defence exists. Their extraordinary capacity for rapid strike actions in any type of hostile territory makes them unique, not only for the Section but also for those who fight at their side."

What do you think about these changes?

Infinity: Libertos ABH

We are starting a new army for Infinity, The game! but, you should imagine which one ;-)

To introduce it, the first miniature is not a clue, or maybe it is? Libertos, Freedom Fighter, is an Authorised Bounty Hunter so he can fit in any Army that pays enough, but he chooses to fight for us!!

This incredible miniature was pained at our studio in the headquarters of Hydra Studio and it's the beginning of a complete commissioned army for a private Infinity's costumer.

We hope you like it!

Infinity Haqqislam Maghariba Guard

Maybe you can remember a Christmas pic with this big guy :-)

The Maghariba Guard is the cream of the crop of the Haqqislamite army. This celebrated armoured regiment produces the units that form the personal guard of the Hachib, Haqqislam’s Prime Minister. TAG technology is very expensive and, even though the Maghariba Guard Regiment is not the only one equipped with these single-man armoured combat vehicles, it is the most prestigious. Due to its prestigious nature, the Maghariba Guard has been able to gather the funds to replace its old Artefaktech XPR-1 units, manufactured under license in Bourak with the codename Bokböceği (Turkish for “Beetle”).

The more advanced XPR-5 Akrep (“Scorpion”) has been retrofitted to improve its close combat capabilities and includes a cutting-edge anti-ballistic defence system. Due to the scarcity of available units, High Command prefers not to risk them needlessly; Haqqislamite strategy books do not include massive armoured charges. Instead, the Maghariba Guard acts as a heavy anvil against which the Ghulam Infantry crushes the enemy. This does not mean that Maghariba pilots are chosen for their cautiousness. In fact, they tend to be very cunning, using their inferior numbers as an advantage and clearing away enemies with an intelligent and precise display of their increased mobility and firepower.

It's a commission I did some time ago, but I couldn't handle to post before. Maghariba is a very big piece, cast completely in white metal, so it was very heavy and hard to handle. One of the hardest points of this piece was to pin it. It must support shipping and we all know our favourite postman is not used to take care with mini's packages O:-)

But on the other hand, it's a beautiful model and once painted is something everyone would want to have in their showcase.
