Infinity O-12 High Commissioner
One cool thing that Corvus Belli have been doing lately is adding non-combatant miniatures to their Infinity range and also providing scenarios and missions to use them in, such as those found in the Dire Foes boxed sets and also Campaign Paradiso.
I like my games to be narrative and objective-based so the idea of playing kidnap, rescue or escort missions with civilian models really appeals, and that’s what we had in the last Paradiso mission I played against John the other night (Mission 203). Results-wise it was a 5-0 washout with John’s PanO successfully disabling a comms antenna so I couldn’t track his dropship and then managing to evacuate a scientist from said dropship, although the game didn’t play out quite so one-sided.
Anyway, we needed a mini to represent the scientist in game so I opted to use the new O-12 High Commissioner miniature and give him a white coat to make him look a little bit scientific.
Quite pleased with him considering he was a relatively quick paintjob and it was useful practice painting whites, which can be fairly tricky.
In case anyone is interested in a recipe, here I used:
Vallejo Model Colour VMC White
VMC Medium Grey (actually a light khaki kind of colour)
VMC Flat Brown mixed into the grey for darkest shadows
This gave a fairly warm white colour overall compared to the purple-greys I’ve been using on my Aleph.
