We're huge fans of the Infinity wargame by Corvus Belli, and the official paint range for the miniatures is produced by Acrylicos Vallejo. Along with the huge range of paints they have available, they also have a range of 6 Infinity Paint Sets, for the different factions. These paint sets come with 8 core colors for that faction and an exclusive Infinity miniature. In this article, we'll look at each set, detailing what's inside and discussing some of the key colors.

To look at the paints, we spray undercoated the 6 exclusive Acrylicos Vallejo Infinity miniatures with grey, to make the colors stand out. Each set comes with a guide written by the incredible professional painter, Angel Giraldez and that advises you what color to undercoat to start with to get the best out of the colors. Any miniatures shown in this article aren't painted completely, and any colors have been painted with a single coat of a specific color. They are shown here to give an indication of the colors.

Acrylicos Vallejo Infinity Paint Sets 0-12.

O-12

O-12 is an international representational and governing body, evolved from the UN, but with greater autonomy, capacity and decision-making power. Endowed with a tactical police branch, Bureau Aegis, O-12 is the arbiter, judge, and jury of the Human Sphere.

The Acrylicos Vallejo O-12 Paint Set contains:

  • Black
  • Dark Prussian Blue
  • Flat Blue
  • Sky Blue
  • Blue Green
  • English Uniform
  • Japan Uniform WWII
  • Ice Yellow
  • An exclusive Kappa Unit Miniature (Medikit)

The O-12 uniform is predominately blue, so the Paint Seet comes with 3 blues, starting with the Dark Prussian Blue, and lightening through Flat and then Sky Blue. Acrylicos Vallejo's Blue Green is used for the technical shimmer on the forearms of the Kappa Unit, and is one of my favorite paints, giving a very stark stand-out color, especially against the other blues. The gold trim effect is built up from English Uniform and Japan Uniform WWII, with highlights of Ice Yellow to give it the shading effect.

 
 
Acrylicos Vallejo Infinity Paint Sets Nomads.

Nomads

Three gargantuan spaceships endlessly traverse the Sphere, doing what others cannot or will not do, sticking it to ‘the Man’ and contesting ordinary definitions of normalcy and acceptability.

The Acrylicos Vallejo Nomads Paint Set contains:

  • Black
  • Sea Grey
  • Hull Red
  • Burnt Red
  • Flat Red
  • Orange Fire
  • Sunny Skin Tone
  • Ivory
  • An exclusive Alguacil Miniature (Medikit)

The Noman uniform is almost entirely red, so this paint set is dedicated to achieving different shades of red. The base is applied with Hull Red so that Burnt Red and Flat Red accentuate the differences between the two on the color-scheme. Orange Fire, Ivory, and Sunny Skin Tone are here to provide the highlights against the dark reds, and really make the recesses and edges of the armor stand out.

Acrylicos Vallejo Infinity Paint Sets Haqqislam.

Haqqislam

From the Arabic Haqq Islam, New or True Islam. Religious doctrine derived from Islamism, and its associated Neomuslim culture. A modern interpretation of the set of dogmas and precepts of the Quran that permeates the everyday lives of its followers. Founded by Farhad Khadivar in the late 21st century, the Haqqislamic movement proposed a philosophical and theological revisionism of the classical Islam, in order to adapt it to the society of its time. Haqqislam proclaims Humanism, the Search for Knowledge, and a set of Metaphysical axioms influenced by Sufi scholars, as the foundations of its doctrine, while simultaneously rejecting religious hierarchies and Sunnah, ‘tradition’, as dogma. Their doctrine is profoundly concerned with political and social issues, and the culture built around it has rekindled the scientific and artistic heirloom of the golden age of Islam.

The Acrylicos Vallejo Haqqislam Paint Set contains:

  • Black
  • Uniform Green
  • Luftwaffe Cam. Green
  • Heavy Brown
  • Flat Earth
  • Sunny Skin Tone
  • Dark Sand
  • Flat Yellow
  • An exclusive Ghulam Infantry miniature

The Haqqislam color scheme is very desert-centric, and so the paint set includes some incredible colors to really make the shades stand out. The Uniform Green is a really bright green that looks incredible with a Dark Sand highlight and really pops against the greens and creams of the rest of the uniform.

Acrylicos Vallejo Infinity Paint Sets Yu Jing.

Yu Jing

PanOceania’s challenger, its perpetual opponent, the other great power, is Yu Jing (pronounced you cheeng), the Asian giant. The whole of the Far East, united under the banner of what once was China, has produced an integrated, but heterogeneous, oriental culture. Equipped with a blooming industrial sector, state-of-the-art technology and astounding economic growth, Yu Jing is ready and willing to demand the dominant position to which it feels entitled.

The Acrylicos Vallejo Yu Jing Paint Set contains:

  • Black
  • White
  • Heavy Black Green
  • Periscopes
  • Cavalry Brown
  • Orange Brown
  • Scrofulous Brown
  • Ice Yellow
  • An exclusive Zhanshi Forward Observer

The Yu Jing armor is a stark yellow against green clothing, and this set and painting guide gives some incredible mixtures to build up the colors. The Heavy Black Green and Ice Yellow really pop against each other, and when using the guide and highlighting up with gradually lightening colors in the highlighted areas, really stand out on the Zhanshi Forward Observer in the armor edges and folds of the clothing.

 
Acrylicos Vallejo Infinity Paint Sets Panoceania.

PanOceania

PanOceania is the leading nation in terms of influence, the Number One, the top of the pyramid of power. Thanks to its strong, healthy economy it can boast the best example of a welfare society, and even a leisure society, in the Sphere. Pioneering space exploration and the development of the ALEPH AI, PanOceania was able to harness its technology to gain an edge over other powers. It sees itself as a model for others to follow, and is willing to fight anyone who would threaten its station. In order to maintain its status, the Hyperpower uses the full extent of its influence in international policymaking, safe in the knowledge that it is backed by an army furnished with the most advanced and destructive technology in the Human Sphere.

The PanOceania armor is blue and white, and to get the armor shimmer, a mixture of Dark Prussian Blue, Blue Green, and White is used in gradually lightening layers. The Flat Earth and Chocolate Brown provide the different colors for the outside and inside of the trousers.

Acrylicos Vallejo Infinity Paint Sets Shasvastii.

Shasvastii

The Shasvastii are the Combined Army’s hounds, explorers and trackers. The Shasvastii army works to a criterion of lightness and mobility, disdaining super-heavy combat units. The specialty of this treacherous race is to cause panic, distrust and paranoia, winning wars thanks to fear and stealth.

  • Ivory

The Shasvastii armor is mostly black, and the guide has a fantastic step-by-step guide to creating incredible-looking black armor with highlights.  The rest of the paints are used on the pale alien skin and red armor on the arms.

 
Acrylicos Vallejo Infinity Paint Sets Exclusive Miniatures.

The Acrylicos Vallejo Infinity Paint Sets are the perfect place to start painting Infinity miniatures. The guides by Angel Giraldez are extremely detailed, with very helpful step by step instructions and pictures, and while you might not be able to paint to their standard, the process will help you achieve great results. The exclusive miniatures are a great added bonus, but the paints themselves are the real stars. They mix well for highlighting, and provide some very standout colors by themselves. The Blue Green, used on the O-12 Kappa Unit's forarms, and Ice yellow from the Yu Jing Zhanshi Forward Observer's armor really pop.
