Geeky Hobbies: Little Space Dudes 3 (Nomads from Infinity)

The third Infinity army I’ve painted is a little different than the others. See, this is the army my 11 year old son uses for the war game. He likes to paint but he’s still learning, and he knows it, only he wanted a good looking army, but he didn’t want to just have Dad paint them for him.

So on most of these he picked the schemes and did the base coats by himself. Then I came through and did clean up, shading, and detail work.

Some of mine, specifically because I needed the characters for the RPG I’m running. Zach is into Ninja Hacker Space Nuns.

Some examples of me trying to paint the Nomad symbol freehand.

More of mine for the RPG. The middle figure is from the Aleph line, but painted as a Nomad because that’s Tony’s engineer PC from the current game.

These my son helped me with. He decided that whenever possible his were going to be super hero themed. So the dude with the corn rows actually has an M over his eye like Bishop, the girl looks like Harley Quinn, and… some dude.

More from me and my son. He tells me the middle dude with the white head was for Hush (Batman villain)

More from me and my son, we’ve got Slade, Ironman, Deadpool, and Bullseye.

But an Ironman suit isn’t enough… Oh no, we need Hulk Buster and Warmachine for the big guys.

Then this is one I did, mostly so I could play with red shading on my air brush. The blue high lights on the hoses pop pretty good.

So apparently Jake Sullivan is going to put Hillary Clinton behind bars.

Is there anything this hero can’t do?

Well done Larry.

Damn! Larry these are really great. The freehand symbols are really nice. How long does it take you to paint a mini? You seem super prolific at it!

That nomad symbol reminds me of the Uchiha symbol from Naruto. Perhaps I’m senile.

Don’t be too pleased. It’s only because Wendell has been sneaking illegal manatee “refugees” in from his own universe…

On a distantly related note, anti-Puppy Camestros Felaption has started making Sad Puppy Lego minifigs, including one of Larry:

I’ve been known to post a YouTube clip of the “Playing With Your Dolls Again” scene from Spaceballs to mock various progs, puppy-kickers, etc., but I didn’t expect someone to actually make dolls of his enemies.
