Back to my sci-fi civilians obsession, the other day I inadvertenly stumbled on a couple of blisters that totally caught my attention. Pure eye candy. They belong to the Infinity ranges, which I had never paid too much attention before, to be honest. But I saw these and it was love at first sight.
I've painted one of them, it's this one:
|Sweet, wonderful sculpt|
One of the main things my civilian mob lacks is women. Finding suitable unarmed female civilians is quite a challenge. There are a number of nice female adventurers (some others way too sexist for what I'm looking for, but that's a totally different topic). Though I had always seen Infinity females into this latter category, I found this one rather adaptable to my board. Besides, it had another virtue, which is the Far Eastern approach. Most gaming companies being settled in Western countries and oriented towards Western public, the miniature hobby tends to be critically ethnic-centred.
Well, I don't know if what I'm saying makes any sense, I'm mixing sexism an ethnicity into minis world. Two topics for a broader debate, I'm afraid. The point is that I fancied a not-European female mini, and this is what I got out of this one:
|Keiko Sunshade. Ehm, I'm still working on the name|
|On a second thought, yes, this could be considered sexist|
I dared to display a traditional-like image on the sunshade:
|Why didn't I think of Dragon Ball when painting this? Dammit!|
Well, this is it for today. This has been my first Infinity mini and I must say I'm delighted, boh design and sculpt are top notch. I don't even know what's this in gaming terms, but for my purposes I think it makes a nice upper class fancy lady. I have another Infinity lady, but I still have to paint her. Hopefully coming soon!
