Painted Hunzakut with Rifle and Light Grenade Launcher

Here is my next miniature for my slowly-growing Druze Bayram Security army in Infinty. This Hunzakut with Rifle and Light Grenade Launcher is actually part of the Haqqislam faction but is co-opted into the Druze for some reason. Actually it occurred to me that Infinity is quite unusual in that the mercenary faction takes many options from ‘main’ forces rather than the other way round, for example in Warmachine. I’ve enjoyed putting the Hunzakut on the table as she’s quite annoying to deal with thanks to her stealth abilities and can deploy near to objectives. This gives me some useful board control tools and also saves having to waste precious orders walking around. Offensively the Rifle isn’t much to write home about but every now and then having the Light Grenade Launcher in the right place can make a fairly entertaining mess of an opposing fireteam (at least, until Joe realised that they don’t need to cuddle each other at the end of each order).

Like so many of Corvus Belli’s miniatures, the pose here is very sweet and evocative, while not being the standard ‘I have a gun and I’m shooting it’ approach common to many games. The colour scheme is the basic white and green to match the rest of the force. I assume that the box in her right hand is supposed to be a mine though it looks a lot like the ghost traps from Ghostbusters to me. Unless I buy any more, I have just four miniatures remaining to complete the army and I will probably do a group photo at that point.

Next on the painting table: Dire Troll Mauler.

  1. That’s a really nicely posed mini, and the skin tone works really well with that green & white! Nicely done mate 🙂

    • Thanks very much. The skin tone is quite a good fit for the white clothing – it makes it easier for someone of my meager skill to have the kind of differentiation that is visible at gaming distance.

  2. I do like the green and white, works a treat.

  3. Nice, I also like the skin tone and pose. You’re right, that box definitely looks straight out of Ghostbusters! Must be nice to be only 4 minis away from finishing up your army! 😀

    • Cheers! Of course, one is never really ‘finished’ with an army! But I’ll be happy to close the book on the Druze without buying more since appetite for playing Infinity seems to have waned again among my friends lately.
