Bandits On Your Tail

A RETURN TO INFINITY WITH A PAIR OF BANDITS FOR THE NOMAD NATION
After many months away and with some spare time while waiting for the Dropfleet Commander Kickstarter, I bashed out a pair of Bandits for the Jurisdictional Command of Corregidor. Infiltrating, Camouflaged troopers with a variety of weapons and skillsets, I always considered them to be an interesting addition to the Sectorial. I've run them a few times, with a mixture of results, and feel they need a bit of practise to really get the hang of. Nonetheless, now I have a pair of them painted and am looking forward to running them with the proper models!

I chose a pink scheme for the blade as it matches other swords in my collection, and matches nicely with the colours of the scheme without contrasting hugely like a blue or green might. The camouflage jackets were painted a simple green/brown, as I did not want to get bogged down with a complex scheme. I'm not going to lie, these were quick and simple paintjobs intended to get the models done in a couple of hours.

Hackers work together to bring down the enemy firewalls

The pair once more. I think the Bandit with Boarding Shotgun is my clear favourite, though the Hacker has a lot of nice parts. Painting-wise I feel the male is stronger, and his blade looks better in these photos. In real life the Hacker does look a lot better, believe me!
I'm not the biggest fan of these models, but they were enjoyable to paint and I really enjoy the slightly larger scale of new Infinity models



Thanks for reading,

George
