HMG Alguacil

Well I wanted to finish this one a couple of weeks ago, but somewhere on the way I got lost and found myself stuck on Azeroth. At least I could motivate me to give her some love and finish the paintjob. Yeah, I've might had better results on other miniatures, but for s miniature meant to be played with it still looks quite good.

I decided to give her pink hair to make it easier for me to locate her on the battlefield. It's the same "trick" I used on my hacker and I know that I'm somewhat playing into my opponents hands, but that's fine. I love the Infinity range, but even for me playing this game for 2 years now, it still often is hard to tell apart enemy models. More so when they're painted really similar or even unpainted. As I want to avoid misunderstandings for my opponent I'd like to make it easy for them to distinguish my Nomads. Giving them different hair colours is a easy way to obtain that without losing the great look coming from a consistent colour scheme. I hope that worked out well on her and my whole Alguacil group.

Another thing I was curious about, was to see my old HMG model side by side with the new one. It's interesting to see the progress my painting style went through the last years and it keeps changing as time goes by. Summoned up I like the new version way better. The new model is amazing compared to the older one and I like the brighter, luscious yellow of the armour tiles. On the other hand the way I like the way the old HMG looks like seeing it beside the new one. Maybe I should make it a bit darker, or what do you think?

Dwarf lord from Russian Alternative

I small commission work I did recently. Nothing special, but still I like it. The miniature itself was very detailed. I think I'll buy one of those someday too. I hope the costumer likes this little fellow.
