Nomad Spektr with Combi Rifle

Here's another Infinity figure from Corvus Belli.  This is another troop for my Nomads army.

The Spektrs are master of infiltration, having some of the best camouflage systems in the game.  In the actual game they basically start invisible on the board until you start moving them.  I have had some pretty good success with this one in the few games that I have played so far.  They're not so great in a stand up fight, but their ability to come out of nowhere and be a real pest for a turn can be very valuable.

When I was thinking about paint schemes I considered some camouflage patterns, but really I would assume this is all done electronically with light-bending software et cetera.  So I kept my base red color that I'm using for all my Nomad troops, and then using some gray tones to keep his appearance a little muted.  As for the weapons, I've been treating them all as if they were made of ceramics.  So I went for black on this guy's weapons and highlighted with a dark blue.

Hope you all are enjoying your weekend!  Thanks for stopping by.
