So I used my 16% off Maelstrom voucher (which I can no longer use to get GW products) to get my first Infinity models! I went with a Yu Jing Japanese Sectorial Army starter pack – in the end, the cyberpunk samurai won me over. Capn Stoogey has joined me (thanks for not leaving me out in the cold mate!) and ordered the Aleph starter pack, so I’m really looking forward to painting the models and trying out the game.
I’ve already got some ideas in mind for paint schemes. I’d like to try a traditional Japanese lacquer effect on the armour, so I’m thinking flat layers of colour with no highlights, coated with high gloss varnish. I’m still undecided whether to go with traditional colourful samurai clothing or dark blues, whites and blacks so they look like a modern kendo class.
