In the near future we will see infantry in power armor. For the Armor round I chose to paint up a Lizard Squadron from Corvus Belli's Infinity line. In addition, I also painted the Lizard Pilot.
battle armor was named "Dorthy" by my wife. After giving it a gray
primer and a quick wash of black to bring out the details, I started
with the base red paint. For some reason I started with the feet. My
wife walked up and said, "Ruby slippers! It's Dorthy!" And the name
stuck because every time I saw her she'd ask how Dorthy is coming along?
Oh well... it's not the name I would have chosen, but I present to
tubes were supposed to attach to the back, but I was already frustrated
with all the fiddly bits during the assembly and just decided I'm make
them part of the base. I used some plastic to make the bin and tossed
in the containers and the extra ammo belt. The rest of the base is made
of plastic-card and a copper wire.
Here's the pilot.
If we've learned anything from years of Japanese Animation, is that a
women in skimpy armor is very deadly in a suit of power armor. I'm
hoping she'll wreck some havoc in my next game on Infinity. I certainly
need something to counter my horrid die rolls!
These are both 28mm.
Hope you enjoy!
