Warsenal Cosmica HAB Building

The Cosmica Colony is a fantastically detailed collection of modular terrain by Warsenal. The range consists of several frames with a variety of wall panels that can be swapped in and out as desired.

This building is their HAB Building, which bundles the Zeta Frame and Zeta Roof with the Airlock, Transfer Tunnel, Bunks and Observation Panel facades.

Base coated via airbrush with P3 Menoth White Base.
Highlighted via airbrush with P3 Menoth White Highlight and then with White.
Shadows via airbrush with a mic of Menoth White Base and Cryx Bane Highlight.
Shadows lined with brush with the same mix, or plain Menoth Base in the lighter areas.
Edges highlighted with brush with pure white.

Base coated via airbrush with VMC 131 Orange Brown.
Highlighted via airbrush with a mix of Orange Brown and VGC Scrofulous Brown.
Highlighted via airbrush adding VMC 013 Ice Yellow to the previous mix.
Shaded via Airbrush with VMC 137 Cavalry Brown.
Shaded with brush using a mix of Cavalry Brown and Orange Brown (pure Cavalry in the darkest areas).
Edge Highlighted with brush using Orange Brown on the darkest parts, Scrofulous Brown in the mid-range, and Scrofulous + Ice Yellow on the brightest parts.

First, using VMC German Camo Black Brown and some blister pack foam, stipple the paint sparingly around the edges and corners for the chipped and scratched paint look.
Then, using an airbrush, use straight GW Agrax Earthshade to dakren anbd dirty the white and orange sections.
To weather the black sections, airbrush a mic of VMC Orange Brown and Cavalry Brown.

Infinity - Ariadna: Kazak Scout

OK, so they are technically called "Ariadna Scouts." But they're TOTALLY Kazaks. Last one of the trio.

Infinity - Ariadna: Colonel Yevgueni Voronin, Cossack Diplomatic Corps

Colonel Veronin and his pet Antipode, leading the Kazaks toward victory.

Infinity - Ariadna: Kazak Scout

The second of three identical Scout models that go get work done for me in Infinity Tournament System missions.

The Brown used on pouches/holsters/backpacks - but mostly on the Comanche Bases from Warsenal - is painted with VMC 150 German Camo Black Brown <> P3 Bootstrap Leather, edge highlighted with VMC 103 German WWII Beige Camo and lined with a mix of the Black Brown and Black.

Infinity - Ariadna: Kazak Spetsnaz with HMG

The Kazak Spetsnaz is fun. When deployed, you place not one but TWO Camo Markers, and can often bait your opponent into wasting orders discovering the "Fake" camo marker by placing it in an aggressive, offensive position while keeping the actual Spetsnaz's marker safe from harm until it is time for him to make his attack run.

Black is the second main color of my Ariadna army. It follows my usual recipe: Black, VMC 168 Black Grey, 166 Dark Grey, 160 Neutral Grey, 155 Light Grey.

To take the balck recipe up to silver, the highlights cover more surface area, and they go all the way up to pure white.

Infinity - Ariadna: Kazak Scout with Ojotnik

The Russian infiltrating camo specialists of Ariadna, the Scouts are a versatile toolbox of equipment very useful for Infinity the Game missions. The Ojotnik is like a shorter-ranged Sniper Rifle.

Green is one of the main colors of my Ariadna forces. It begins with VMC 090 Reflective Green, adding in 079 Golden Olive for highlights, and then adding 020 Sunny Skintone for further highlights. Shadows and lining are done with 100 Black Green.
