Well after being tricked into painting something different ( I say tricked I was just waiting for an excuse) I've started working my way through some Infinity models.
And with little hesitation I settled on Aleph a faction I've always been interested in. I'll no doubt venture forth into the other factions at some point but for now I plan to work my way through my chosen faction.

For doing some painting for a friend a little while ago I received the Aleph starter set and it's TAG in payment, so from that these two were chosen for my test models.

With these two down I'm pretty pleased with the scheme looking at the rest of the range and how it'll work. I did kick myself the following morning when I looked at them and realised I'd decided to paint a force in a white colour scheme, but I'm going to stick to it and hopefully it wont drive me insane.

After that though I decided to order a couple models that I like the looks of and after talking to a friend I'll most likely use in lists when I start playing.
A Dactyl and a Chandra special ops trooper to count as a second Dactyl.
I've finished the Spec ops model which I love, While not perfect I'm pretty pleased that I was able to get the eyes and lips right, while the two test models need touching up in that regard.
Also Blue hair.

From here I plan to finish the actual Dactyl model and then the hacker (I think it is) from the starter set before I start work on the Tactbots and TAG, mainly because I've realised they're pretty much all white and I'm putting that off for a little while, so I can paint those that I know I'll enjoy painting.

Well, from my plans at the end of the last post. Nothing was completed. I do have reasons though. After looking through lists and chatting with the local Infinity guys I decided to play from the Steel Phalanx section. Which out of the current models I own meant only the Chandra Special Ops character would be being used. (As a Dactyl Doctor, it's a nice model. Plus Blue hair!).

While I say working on Steel Phalanx I saw this model and had to have it, and whether she's worth it or not, she's currently staying in my list.
So far she's annoyed a Morat linked team and then been removed.
dropped a 5 point model, then removed...
To be honest I just need to get better at the game, positioning matters.

So here she is.
