Infinity: Croc Man

Veteran scout squads from the brutal Paradiso front. The Regiment was founded in the wake of the Ravensbrücke Retreat debacle. After evacuating the city under the pretence of a biochemical leak, several PanOceanian divisions were deployed along the urban perimeter to stop the alien advance. Tragically, they were soon overwhelmed by superior enemy numbers. In the chaotic retreat that ensued, the remains of the decimated Polynesian Division lost contact with their Command post and decided to mount a desperately fierce last stand in the Financial District, overlooking the jungle around it. Their sacrifice made it possible to evacuate the defenceless rearguard garrison and campaign hospitals. By the time they were able to regroup, eighty per cent of the Division was KIA. The survivors formed the core of the Crocodile Men Regiment. Although the Regiment is no longer composed exclusively of ethnically Maori people, they still observe the traditions of its founders, including their distinctive tattoos and subdermal piercings. Croc Men specialize in missions involving Covert Incursion, Surveillance, Tactical Recovery, and Search and Destroy in enemy territory. Their preferred MO is to appear unexpectedly, attack viciously for a moment and then withdraw back into the shadows, giving the enemy little time to react. Croc Men are known to be ferocious enemies, the kind that is best not to aggravate… at least not if you haven’t gotten around to choosing a colour for your coffin.

Another addition to the Combined Army I'm painting on commission. Croc Man is an awesome miniature very easy to paint and with one of the best-sculpted faces I found on this scale. I had a very good time painting this guy.

Kingdom Death: Pinup Chef Female

Many Great Game Hunters would readily accept death before accepting a poor meal. Their travelling kitchens are obstinately impractical, able to produce a feast under even the harshest circumstances. Rival houses know that a surefire way to hamstring their competitors is to find a weakness in their kitchen. An extra-rich stew laying too heavy in the belly or a spoiled, gut-wrenching ingredient may be a hunter's undoing. To this end, hunters shower their chefs with riches and keep the threat of grievous harm close at hand.

Painting Kingdom Death pinups it's always something strange to me. I'm always afraid before starting because they are usually very hard and fragile miniatures who deserve very special care and I'm not always confident enough in my skills. Also, at the same time, I enjoy a lot the challenge and I usually like them a lot once done.

This time it was harder for me, don't know why but it finished not in the way I had previously in my head, not worst or better, just different. 

This time I don't know what to say about her.

Infonity: Orc with feuerbach

Only the best soldiers can aspire to join the heavy infantry units that make up the Heavy Tactical Group, better known as “Orc Troops”. The nickname, Orc, originates from the name of the company that develops their combat armour, the ORC Corp. (Omnia Research Creation Corporation). The Orc Troops have earned the reputation of being veterans that always take part in the most aggressive operations. As multi-purpose heavy infantry, Orc troops are assigned to the fronts of the most intensive battles, to establish the toughest line of resistance, and to try and break through the enemy lines.

As another complement of the infinity combined army, I'm painting as commission, this Orc is one of the funniest miniatures I painted recently. Cold tones are a priority here, also an intense blue was a requirement. 

Hope you like it.

Infinity: Helots

Its native inhabitants are a semi-intelligent species: the Helots. The economy of Varuna is centered around industrial biotech firms, factories and marine farms where the Helots are the main working resource.

Another Infinity Commission work. 3 Helots to add to the combined army I'm painting for a customer.

Infinity: HAC TAO

The name of the Hac Tao Special Intervention Unit can be translated as “Black Magic”, and refers to the camouflage and thermal emission dampener technologies of their armours. Brave, lethal and trustworthy, Hac Tao are known to tread very lightly and hit very hard. The function of this well-trained unit is usually enemy interdiction, with a focus on dealing the maximum amount of damage with their actions. Hac Tao are specifically equipped to carry out Harassment and Elimination missions, but can also provide support in broad-scope special operations, and collateral activities that include Direct Action, internal defence, and combat search and rescue operations.

Hi guys. Another Infinity Commission, a blister of HAC TAO units, a couple of armoured guys very cool to paint on from Yu Jing Army.

Hope you like them.

POISON IVI: 30mm from Batman, the miniature game

Poison Ivy (Dr. Pamela Lillian Isley is a fictional supervillain appearing in comic books published by DC Comics, commonly in Batman stories. Poison Ivy was created by Robert Kanigher and Sheldon Moldoff, and made her debut in Batman #181 (June 1966).

Poison Ivy has been portrayed as a love interest of Batman. She has teamed up on occasion with fellow villains Catwoman and Harley Quinn, with Harley being her close friend, recurring ally and sometimes romantic interest. She is a Gotham City misanthropic botanist and biochemist who is obsessed with plants, ecological extinction, and environmentalism. The character's appearance is considered iconic; she is typically drawn barefoot in a one-piece costume adorned with leaves and vines, with occasional variations to her skin tone. She uses plant toxins and mind-controlling pheromones for her criminal activities, which are usually aimed at protecting endangered species and the natural environment. She was originally characterized as a supervillain, but as of The New 52 and DC Rebirth, she has periodically been depicted as an antiheroine, often doing the wrong things for the right reasons.

From Wikipedia

I painted this miniature from Knight Models a couple of weeks ago. It's really small and proportionated, very hard to paint, but also very cool. position Ivy was always for me a great character from DC, very sexy and dangerous ;-)

The miniature is a commission work for a private collector.
