Great miniatures with great painting. I love the use of the Infinity miniature, I have a few for the same purpose.

Two more models to fit into my SW range...


Bounty Hunter and Wardroid

The Droid is from Pig Iron, the Bounty Hunter is an Infinity model with head swap. IIRC the head is a Hasslefree female human head.
cheers and keep on gaming, Agis - http://www.adpublishing.de

Great work, Agis!
How I missed the original Dooku post......
 ???

Superb reds on the original two and great use of alternative minis for the SW universe. Very imaginative.

Thanks for the heads up on the Pig Iron Droid.
I have been looking around for one or two of the classic Rogue Trader Robots, but they go for silly prices.
This fella looks close enough for my needs.
Cheers!

Looking great Agis!  :D

You know, looking at the bounty hunter and Sith, I was thinking that it'd be great to see you tackle a new Infinity army! It's been a *long* while since you did your Yu Jing force, and the models have improved a huge amount since then...  ;)

True - my Yu Jing force is badly neglected.
 :?
But to be honest I am still following Infinity closely, for me the full rulebook was basically too full (of rules) and I lost a bit of interestt as far as the rules are concerned. In addition my own rule writing kept me quite busy.
BUT - where aer today's Infinity minis better?

Very understandable! Also, the rules are more complicated now (with the addition of fireteams of various types), but the online Wiki is a very helpful resource in getting answers quickly.

Well, just compare the old/new Shaolin Monks or the old/new starter set Zanshis for example.

New models are fiddlier, but generally much better detailed, proportioned and cast.

Ah got it, but this is not a good thing for me.  :?
The "old" Infinity models were already on the "too much detail" threshold for me!

Well, I wouldn't say "more" detailed, but "better" detailed.

For example:





And also:





And whilst some of the parts are fiddlier, there is also a move towards making some things simpler/easier to assemble - for example, the fins on the back of the Hsien are now in little strips that slot in instead of the old ones which were all individual.

Anyway, I've derailed enough now, so I'll leave it there. If you get the chance to see some of the newer models in hand though, I think you'd like them! ;)

15mm Star Wars!


Revell Pocket model Gunship (prepainted and under 9,00 EURO!) that was then repainted, aged and slightly converted, Clones by CMG with Micromachine Heads.
The Critical Mass game minis I used are these:

I got the idea from here: http://gunnerswargamming.blogspot.com.au/2011/09/15mm-test-stormtrooper.html
Works like a charm.

Lovely agis. Keep meaning to commission some 15mm and 25mm non-clone heads for various projects. These look great.

I would buy a lot of "Not-Clone" heads in 15 and / or 28mm.

 :-* :-* :-* Great stuff as usual!

I would also be up for serious amounts of 15mm clone trooper heads!
FFF

Anyone know how the risk clones would do for head swaps?

The resin why some one hasn't already made some none clone heads is beyond me :D

Highlander Studios are producing, soon I hope, 15mm Stormtroopers. Still waiting on the details but should be good when it happens. :-)
