Alguacil with Missile Launcher

More Infinity stuff today.  Still trying to get my basic 300 point army ready for some local gaming. The Infinity scene around here in the Dallas-Fort Worth area is really active so I'm really looking forward to getting more games played here in the future.  I hate to play with unpainted miniatures, so I've just decided to make Infinity the focus for the time being until I get these all painted.

So here's a little background on the Nomads (the faction I picked).     Infinity is set 175 years into the future. In that time humanity has achieved planetary colonization and long distance space travel.  The Nomads are a coalition of three massive ships that travel from planet to planet offering goods and services.  Each specializes in certain skills and services that they offer to interested buyers.

Tunguska - information trafficking and storage.
Corregidor - skilled labor at competitive prices
Bakunin - exotic goods from fashion to nano-engineering (legality is optional)

For now, my basic troops will be the Corregidor Alguaciles.  In regards to points they are really cheap and they come with a nice selection of weaponry.   So first up... I picked up a support weapon in the form of a missile launcher.  In the few games I've played so far I have ran into quite a few enemies that were either robots or in heavy armor.  So this guy is a pretty cheap option and handy to have around for helping with some of those heavier hitters on the table.

  3. Your color and detail on the Algua's face has earned you a free wknd trip to Uxee for their annual giant catfish "Catch and Fry Party." You'll find your ticket on Memorial Day morning under the pint whiskey bottle next to your coffee cup. Enjoy the red-eye transporter trip, Rocky.

    1. Wow! This is great Jay! My painting generally just earns me questioning looks and barely stifled laughter. I feel like things are changing in the right direction all of a sudden!

    1. Thank you! I must admit that some of the Infinity models can be rather frustrating to assemble though!

    2. 😁 Tell me about it.
      It's one of the reasons I decided to sell my stuff.
