Guest Painting Tutorial - 1 Shading

   So painting is a pretty massive part of this hobby everyone would agree, but you cant really talk shop in regards to painting on a podcast. It just doesn't work without the visual aspect for obvious reasons (other podcasts have tried and failed however). But because we didn't want to ignore what is a pretty fundamental aspect of Infinity we decided to put painting articles up here independent from the podcast episodes themselves. Secondly, because any tips we could give would be mediocre at best we drafted in one of Australia's best painters Yoshi to do the guest articles.  
   You can find his work over at So go check it out! (incidentally he's also the guy who painted the Achilles for our competition prize, so you should all get onto that as well)

Hey guys and gals,

   An exclusive leak for you all from the wonderful guys at Corvus and your favourite Infinity podcast in the Southern Hemisphere!
   This is a preview of the logo for one of the battle-fronts on Paradiso for the Pan Oceania regiments. Just to specify, this is not a troop logo, but a logo for the whole front. And for those of you not in the Infinity Australia Facebook group, this logo is taken from the logo for our FB group. Awesome work Corvus, you guys rock!

The logo design based on the Australian Infinity Group

The Pan - O combat groups present on Paradiso for the duration of the campaign
    Exciting stuff! and not long now until the book hits! so hopefully we'll be able to bring you some more interesting insights in the mean time.

   And don't forget, a painted achilles is up for grabs, just like us on facebook and submit a logo design for our podcast!
