Fast forward to today and as you know I began painting Infinity models for the sake of actually playing Infinity. This because of my friends sudden interest in also wanting to paint some figs and play the game. All good stuff for me! So here I am with this primed but unpainted behemoth calling out to me saying, "Kevin paint me, don't buy more figures until you paint me"! Well I caught myself saying out loud "okay, okay" only to have my wife step into my paint room and ask, "did you say something honey?", .... ahem "no dear" was my reply, you must of heard me cough or something.
So I sat down and painted this little gem based off the original paintings from Corvus Bellis. It's a plain simple paint job, not a lot depth from my brush stand point, but enough to make it a nice gaming piece I think. It was overall fun to paint, but if you look at the belt fed weapon THAT was a super pain (and poorly designed) in the butt to put together. I'm not going to allow anyone to touch it for fear of it breaking off. The belt came in two pieces and I not only had to glue these together but also to the leg feed and to the weapon, which meant I had to carefully bend and shape said belt to actually go between the two in a way they would line up. On top of that you didn't have a slot to glue the ends to but a knob instead. But in the end I did it and even got a little inspired to attempt some weathering, though I could and should have done more I was ready to be done.
So I present for your viewing pleasure my humble attempt at a Szalamandra.
Cheers and thanks for looking
