Another successful hobbying weekend! With Pics!

Despite my being out of town for a almost a week, I had what I would call a successful hobby weekend!  Well it was pretty much a successful Sunday…but still!

Let’s take a look-see at what hit the table this weekend!

[Infinity] Initial thoughts on Tohaa & Completed Army Pics!

I went with Tohaa as my first (and quite possibly only) Infinity force. Aesthetically, they hit all the right buttons. I haven’t come across a model I don’t like yet, which is a rarity as even though I love my Menoth, there are still models I don’t really care for in that regard (same goes for every faction in WM/H actually). So A+ there.

Tohaa Army
Aw yiss.

Playstyle-wise, so far the Tohaa seem a bit horde-ish to me as many lists I build have more than 10 models (conversely, the Haqqislam list I was initially going with was just 8 models if I remember correctly). You can make lists with less by using more Symbiote Armor (again awesome) troops or taking heavier weapon loadouts however.

[Infinity] Red vs Blue

Red & Blue Tohaa Sakaels WIPs
Red & Blue (the eternal struggle) Tohaa Sakaels WIPs

By the time you read this, I will have already made my choice. But hey, I’ll share anyway!

I’m typing up my initial impressions of Infinity currently, so look for that in the next week or so, along with a slew of new content as motivation has taken me once more (I hope).

In the meantime, I got back to painting my Tohaa because, well, it’s only 13 models at the moment (with plans for a couple additions soon as they are released) so it shouldn’t be a big deal to get a fully painted force ready.

Here are a pair of Sakeals (a unit I love so far). The red is what I was originally planning for my Tohaa, as a take on a flesh-and-bone scheme.  Over the weekend, I was bit by the desire to paint (finally), so I got to work on this new version.  I’m really liking the blue now because of how it stands out more and is quite different from the stock studio scheme.

My current goal is to have around 75% (so 9 models) of my Tohaa painted for by return back to gaming in about 2-ish weeks.

The Amazing Lemon Creme Puff Trolls!

I wanted to take a break today from showcasing my Journeyman project in order to showcase another local player’s.

It is my honor to present to you:  The Lemon Créme Puff Trolls!

My good friend Zac has taken a break from his Swans in order to focus on Trolls (and like me take a foray into the Hordes side of the house).  No lie, his trolls are probably in my Top 10 favorite paint schemes, and they look even better in person.

The Pyre Troll is my favorite.  Enjoy the Gallery!

[Tutorial] How to re-color miniatures or do test schemes in Photoshop (and GIMP)

[EDIT: He also just added instructions for GIMP!]

Picking color schemes can be one of the most daunting aspects of painting miniatures.  Many of us don’t want to sink in the time only to have to redo everything if we don’t like it.  If only there was a way to preview paint schemes quickly and easily (and en masse) before ever putting paint brush to model…

Over at Level 12 Paladin, he’s put together a great guide for accomplishing just that in Photoshop.
