Today's post will be adding some more light infantry to my Nomads force for Infinity. These 3 alguaciles are equipped with Combi Rifles which is basically an assault rifle. I have 1 more figure to paint [about 85% done actually] and I'll have completed painting the starter box. :) Once again my wife was kind enough to help me with the picture taking.
The Nomad spaceship Corregidor was originally a prison ship financially backed by a conglomeration of South American countries. Prisoners were kept in cryogenic sleep and the ship was manned by a standard crew and police force. As funding slowly faded the ship became independent and joined the ships Tunguska and Bakunin to form the Nomad Nation. The Corregidor's specialty is skilled labor at an affordable price. The Alguaciles ("Sheriffs") not only help to maintain order on the ship but also are often outsourced to third parties in need of their services.
For these three I wanted to give them a darker skin color to match the South American heritage. I really had no intention of naming them, but the female quickly became Carmen. My wife and I recently took my Mom to see Bizet's Carmen, and this figure's sultry pose and feisty looking attitude reminded me of the opera's main character.
Next up is Escamillo. In the opera Carmen, Escamillo is a toreador ("bull fighter"). He sings one of the most recognized tunes in Carmen. Seriously, Google "toreador" and listen to the song. It will be stuck in your head for weeks!
And then finally we have Don Jose. No, just kidding. We'll leave out this character because I don't want to worry about him shooting Carmen at the end of the battle. So we'll end with the opera characters and name this dude Rogerio! Why? He's a friend of the blog and has a really cool name so why not steal it! Hope you don't mind buddy!
I should be posting another figure later this week. Just have some more highlights to do.
Hope you all have a good week!
