‘Lasciate ogni speranza voi ch’entrate’ or How to lose friends and alienate people.
So, I recently sold my Crucible Guard army because they were just not doing it for me anymore. While the army was still ok power-wise, their focus on shooting and the dominance of Syvestro as the best option in the faction made them wear out their welcome very soon. I hope their new owner is having more fun playing them than I had the last few times I ran them.
But that left me with a bit of spare cash to burn and having played against quite a few Infernals lists to prepare for the VTC, I was intrigued and also curious about whether there were people who already wanted to sell their Infernals after less than a year. Fortunately, or unfortunately, it took about an hour for someone on the German forum to reply to my ad in the marketplace subforum and all of a sudden I owned one of everything in the faction for less than I got for the Crucible Guard. A few additions later and here I was with a ton of unpainted resin and pewter.
So while I was wracking my brain on how to paint them up quickly as I had been invited to a Longest Night event three weeks later and as it would wrap up the story of the Grymkin and Infernals conflict, having an Infernal army would make sense, I noticed that a) I only had white primer left and b) I had never used contrast paints to paint an entire army and I had some purple contrast paints staring right at me. Huzzah! And here is what I managed to paint since then.
I am really happy with the results, as the army looks good on the table without taking ages to finish.
