This post is about the Combined Army Rasyat Figure. This is the first mini that I painted from this particular faction. To be honest I was a little intimidated. It is larger and more complex than the other minis I've previously done from Infinity.
I guess that it took me about 15 hours over a 15 day period to paint it. I did decide to change the paint scheme in the middle so that definitely added a little more time.
I really like the pose of this mini. It is very dynamic and fluid and it gives a good sense of the mini in motion. I also really like the sculpt - it is very well done even though it was made about four years back in the mid-release date of this range. However, I think it stands up to newer sculpts very well.
I have to admit I did have some issues with the color scheme. I was originally going for the studio color scheme and I was almost finished but the colors did not sit with me very well. I decided to change the overall scheme a little. In the studio colors the mini's pants were green and the chest armor was brown. I don't know what it was but I just did not like that color combo. So I changed the chest armor to blue and the pants to brown and I think it works quite well.
Again I used Vallejo Model Colors.
Here are some of the examples of the colors that I used:
Some of the metal armor and knife I used this formula:
Base: Prussian Blue + Field Blue + Hull Red
Highlight 1: Field Blue
Highlight 2: Dark Sand
Highlight 3 White
Shadow: Prussian Blue + Black
For the hair I used:
Base: Prussian Blue + Violet
Highlight 1: Royal Purple
Highlight 2: White
Shadow: Dark Prussian Blue
Again, the biggest issue I had with this mini was the intimidation factor. When looking at the Combined Army as a whole it is very complex, detailed, and very, very different from all the other Infinity factions. So sometimes it's easy to feel a little overwhelmed by it all. I would have to say the same about this mini as well. But by just sticking to it and following through, once finished the results can be pretty fantastic and quite stunning.
So here are some pics of the process and the finished mini. I hope you like:
