Hey friends! Time for yet another Infinity post. This time I will introduce you to Crazy Koalas. One of the weapons available in the Nomad's arsenal is a little robot called the Crazy Koala. The Crazy Koala is a proximity weapon. It follows along with it's controller and can be anywhere within the controller's Zone of Control (ZOC). The ZOC in Infinity is 8" and does not require line-of-sight. After all, this is the future and they have electronics and all kinds of detection gear at their disposal. What a proximity weapon does is during the other player's turn it will sit in a idle state until an enemy enters their ZOC and it will charge them until it reaches base to base contact... and EXPLODE. Now that's just good fun folks!
Now as I was pondering the paint job for my Crazy Koalas I just kept thinking about the Care Bears. If you're not familiar with these cartoon characters well they are oriented towards younger children. In my sinister twisted mind I decided I'd paint my little suicide koalas as these friendly childhood characters. Why not?? I'm playing it off as it provides a few seconds of confusion for the friend/foe recognition software of my enemies. It could work...
Anyway, here they are! The Crazy... I mean... Caring Koalas!
Since the models come in pairs, I didn't want them to be duplicates so for the one below I was going to sculpt him on a different base. But the pose just screamed SURF BOARD or HOVER BOARD, you choose. Either way that's what the green stuff turned into when I was done. :)
And for this one I got the idea that it would be cool if he was running through a smoke grenade in the processing of just beginning to spread out it's smoke.
Hope you all are having a good weekend.
