Geeky Hobbies: Little Space Dudes 7 (Mercenaries from Infinity)

This Friday’s Geeky Hobby posting is mercenaries for Infinity.

Being mercs, the paint schemes are basically whatever colors I felt like playing with at the time.
image

Kaplans, because I wanted to experiment with dirty white armor. The light box pic came out kind of washed out on these guys because the whites actually turned out really good (and white is tough to paint)
image

That’s the fun thing about mercs, whatever colors I feel like at that moment, with no need to tie into an overall theme.
image

Orange is another color that gives me a challenge.
image

Some high value targets. The guy with his hands behind his back was Pat Tracy’s character from Writer Nerd Game Night.
image

This is Scarface and Cordelia. I’m really pleased with how they turned out.
image

I had a lot of fun shading the bright greens.

That freehand star came out a little crooked, but keep in mind that on this screen it is about 10x bigger than in real life.
image

This big fella is the Anaconda, and that’s the pilot. For whatever reason I wanted to mess with what were basically Easter egg colors. And then I rolled it in the mud and shot him a bunch.
image

I wanted smoke, dust, mud splotches, and wear and tear. Overall I’m pretty pleased.

Check out the bullet spall on the neck armor.

Why haven't I gotten my patch yet? It's been 2 weeks!

The guy with his hands behind his back reminds me of a faction leader in Fallout 4.

I haven’t painted since the lead figure days. How much trimming and stuff do you need to do on the modern figures before painting? I see you do a lot of work on your bases. Do you do that yourself or share some with your kids?

Damn, Larry, the grey, white, and aqua one looks incredible.

Is it supposed to be a power armor or a mecha type unit? Not knowing the game and if there are non-human races, the scale has me a little confused.

Also are these figs from the game you are doing the game-based stories for?

Awesome attention to detail, Larry! It really is evident even on the bases. Love what you do and do what you love. Good motto for everyone (especially geeks!).

Those are pretty sweet. Stop making me want to get back into tabletop gaming; I can’t afford it!

Meanwhile, Social Justice is starting a push to label it white male terrorism:
