My Infinity Minis

Postby Darkeldar » Wed Jun 05, 2013 10:19 pm

In addition to finishing the two model kits, I also finished 23 Infinity miniatures, with plenty more to go.

Is it possible that you have far too many..... I may have to escalate......

Thanks for the complement, I'm nowhere near prize-winning with my skill, but I do try to go beyond the old GW tournament requirement of 3 colours and a wash.

And Frizzen, there ARE Infinity players I've met, that have larger collections than mine.

Oooooooh.....very cool! Great collection!!!! Are the bases solid molded with terrain or do you apply terrain basing and paint?

They're just regular plastic slotta bases. And I'm trying to figure out what the fascination is, or why I get questions regarding the flocking I use. I'm so cheap that I've been using a tub of 30 year-old model railroading flock, that I inherited from my wife's first husband. I've enough remaining to probably cover a couple dozen more bases.

Well, to be honest....the bases look nice and clean. Yes, some mini-artists do amazing things with flocking and painting, use of sand and model bits, etc. But to me, it's harder to make a simple base medium look great, than it is to have complex bases where screw-ups are quite literally camouflaged! There. Your answer. Now you can get busy using up the rest of that 30-year old flock! :lol:

Where are you from? as I might be able to direct you to a local group. Drop me a PM. Also if you are attending GenCon, I can give you a demo.

Well I'm a playa, not an artist, so my painting's to look decent on the table. And I just found out that CB isn't using regular slotta bases, anymore. Last week I saw someone working on the Chaksa set at the FLGS, and the slots are now filled. I'd have to find something to fill the slot prior to applying the flocking, but now I only need to cut the width of slot needed.

And the best glue I found for simple flocking is Mod Podge, it comes in the right consistency to brush onto the base, and not slip off while dredging in my flocking tub. If I brush over the rim of the base, I can just wipe it off after dredging. Once dry it shouldn't shrink or come loose from the base.

I'll have a few more pictures shortly.
