Working on a large Infinity commission

Last month I was contacted by someone who has been gaming with his unpainted Infinity miniatures for a while, but now wanted them painted. Of course I was happy to accept this commission because small skirmish forces like his are right up my alley. By the way if you want to have something painted by me, you can get more information here, or simply get in touch: info@corvusminiatures.com.

The major part of the commission are the miniatures he is already using: Ariadna. To be honest these models weren’t that expertly assembled, so I spent quite a bit of time cleaning them and removing and re-attaching (with pinning this time!) parts where necessary. To give you an idea none of the miniatures were glued to their bases, simply stuck in the slotta base and the large scenic bases were stuck on there with sticky tape. But I don’t blame my customer for this of course, these aren’t the easiest miniatures to get started with if you are new to the hobby.

The other part are two PanOceania blisters, which will become my customer’s second force I think.

Another great thing about this commission is the fact that my customer provided me with a lot of reference material. He mailed me a zip file with lots of images, word documents, etc. Quickly I had an image in my mind of what I (and hopefully he too) wanted and got started with four of the Ariadna figures, which are all a joy to paint. Especially the wolf-guy is fun to do.

I also like the face of this sniper a lot, it’s very well sculpted!

The PanOceania figures are something completely different. The idea here is to have them look like ghosts, like they are wearing some kind of cloak armour.

Desktop update September 2017

Time flies! A couple of weeks ago I was still enjoying my summer holiday in very nice weather and today the weather is cold, stormy and the first signs of autumn are already showing. Time to catch up on what’s been happening on my painting desk since the last update!

First some Age of Sigmar updates. It’s now been two years since I started working on the starter box (on and off of course). All Stormcast Eternals are done, so since the last update I finished painting the Retriutors and Prosecutors (you might have seen the pictures on my Instagram account). Soon it will be time to rank them all up for a big photoshoot, promised.

The last twee weeks I spent time on the two Khorne models you see below. After these are done there are only 5 models left to do (including the big Khorne monster which is a sculpt I don’t really like to be honest).

When I’m on holiday I always try to take something with me I can work on. I decided upon another batch of rank & file Mordor Orcs for my LotR army. The amount of paints I need to paint these is quite limited and on top of that painting rank & file can take up some time. So with more time to spend on painting it seems to go a bit quicker :)
I also added some standard bearers and a captain (not pictured here).

Speaking of LotR the guy below arrived in the mail today. It’s a Mordor character named Kardush the Firecaller. It’s an OOP metal model, the kind which you can sometimes find on eBay for 50-60 EUR if you’re lucky. I managed to pick this one up on a local second hand site for 15 EUR or so. The only problem is that his staff is broken, but the bit is supplied together with the model and it’s a clean cut so easy to fix.

At the moment of writing an exiting commission just came in, but that’s something for a next blog post. Take care!
