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.

  1. So very jealous of your beautiful beautiful minis. These looks STUNNING.
    May I ask what your colour recipe for shading the white on these guys is?


    • Cheers 🙂

      For the white (eg on the Posthuman’s thigh) I was really aiming at a cool purple-grey tone. So paints I used were Vallejo Model Colour white, VMC Sea Grey (I think), VMC Royal Purple, and then a spot of black mixed in for the deepest shade. The grey helps to keep the light purple from becoming pink/lilac.
