Aleph Spec Ops and a Netrod
Quick update to show a couple more minis I finished over the weekend for my growing Infinity Aleph squad.
First up we’ve got a Netrod.
These things are handy in game to bolster the order pool and also help the Posthuman consciousness to jump back and forth between proxy bodies. Apparently. Anyway at a mere 4 points they’re pretty much a shoe-in for an Aleph player.
I think I could have lightened the coloured “petal” panels and perhaps filled the holes with darker shades, but they’ll do.
Now for a more interesting mini we have the Chandra Spec Ops.
The Spec Ops miniatures were a recent addition to the game – coming in Campaign Paradiso – and are supposed to be able to skill up as a campaign series progresses. In the mini tournament/league I’m playing at the moment, we’re just having them as a fixed point cost, which is fair enough I suppose.
Anyway, the miniature itself is pretty cheesecake, a complaint often levelled at Infinity’s anime inspired sculpts. I don’t have a problem with it personally. I guess, like countless artists over the centuries, I prefer to paint the female form. You can really get your teeth into those curves, if you know what I mean. Ahem.
Pretty pleased with the Chandra. I purposefully gave her a more tanned skintone compared to the rest of the Aleph minis I’m painting, to represent a trooper who’s spent a lot of time out in the field (or had plenty of decent R&R time on some sun-soaked Paradiso atoll at least).
Now because I can’t help myself, here’s a group shot of my painted Aleph so far.
