With my catalog of painting faces through Infinity models, I found I had another face to paint up before jumping into a lot of helmeted heavy infantry. I decided it might be fun to show the successive stages of how I was painting faces now, using the LazyPainter technique.

I’ve been painting Infinity for about 18 months now and I recently ran across an interesting site on some new techniques. The LazyPainter has a nice quick guide on painting the skin tones with face painting. I recently adopted the technique and I’m liking the results as I work out my own kinks. I thought I’d explore the results a little to see where I’ve come from and where I’m going.
With Tentfinity being successful over the past month+, I decided to make the set up a bit easier by making a new 4′ x 4′ board. Previously, I’ve been relying on a double set of 4×4 sheetrock panels but they are annoyingly heavy to move. The panels are also fragile without good support, susceptible to moisture if it starts to rain with wind picking up, and I tend to get dirty carting them around.
With Infinity N4 hitting the tent table regularly, I decided to make a little player aid. Infinity line of fire is your “from the model’s perspective” style game but like several miniatures games, they don’t want to penalize players for having odd models. All minis have an assumed volume based on their base size so that the company and the player can model their figures any way they want.
90 consecutive days of painting was the eventual milestone I reached last Friday when I set out to see how long I could keep up a painting streak. I reached a point on Saturday where I had the choice of pushing onward or relaxing into a less regimented approach to my hobby work. The temptation to “chill” was too great and I decided to end the great ride.
