Welcome to Infinity-Engine

Hi, my name is Richard Helliwell and Infinity-Engine is my company to sell my designs and creations to you, I hope you like what you see on the site. I thought I'd mention a little about my background and why I'm creating these models. I've spent most of my working life in the creative industries, nine years working at Games Workshop, half of that time in the studio and the last seven years I've worked in the VFX industry, working on big films such as Harry Potter, Pirates of the Caribbean and the X-Men films amongst many others. I've always made models and now is my chance to create models from both classic Sci-Fi and my own imagination and share them with you. I've started with a couple of models that grabbed my attention as a child and have shapes that somehow hook into the mind and don't let go, at long last I've been able to bring these great models to life and I really hope you love them too. The models can be put on display, but I also hope some people find them handy for Roleplaying games or Wargaming, what ever you do with the models, I hope you enjoy the designs and look out for more in the future.

Shelf Bracket

Infinity-Engine's first 3D printed product. I've designed a shelf bracket for the IKEA DETOLF glass cabinet, so you can add extra shelves, great for displaying your army and collectibles. These are brackets of my own design for adding extra shelves to the IKEA DETOLF display case. These are the brackets only, it is easier for you to get the shelf's locally, glass ones should be about £10 each at a glazer, or you can cut up a sheet of 4mm Perspex from a DIY store. The brackets are 3D printed in white ABS plastic, the correct nuts and screws are included. I've spent a lot of time and dozens of versions to perfect this design, they are easy to install and provide a nice neat, flat bracket for shelves to sit on. The brackets are in two designs, one for the right and one for the left of a shelf. If like me you need a cabinet to display models and war game armies there is nothing cheaper than the IKEA DETOLF, but it only comes with three shelves, plus the bottom of the cabinet. You really need more shelves, I find the perfect balance is three more shelves that divide each shelf space in half and one shelf full height for big monsters and terrain. This kit includes 12 brackets, six right and six left, with all the nuts and bolts you need, this is enough for three shelves. If you require a different number of brackets, message me and I'll work out something for you.

Radioactive Waste Pit tutorial

Radioactive_waste_tutorial

These barrels consist of six different designs, two are relatively intact, the other four are in a state of collapse and sinking into the ground. The state of the barrels is great for more dramatic story telling. The example Radioactive Pit has thirteen barrels and a couple of them are miscasts, but you could easily do this terrain with a couple of packs of my barrels. The Terminators are just for show, you can see them hesitating to cross. I've made a tutorial out of how I made the radioactive Pit, feel free to download it here; Radioactive Waste Pit tutorial PDF

The Iron Mole

This design is inspired by the story 'At the Earths Core', by Edgar Rice Burroughs. I remember seeing the film based on this story when I was a kid and the mole machine really stuck in my head, even if the rest of the effects are pretty wobbly. I've had great fun building this, it's going to be awesome fun to paint. Although highly detailed, it's a simple construction of just the Mole and the base. Supplied unpainted in two parts.

The Cavorite Sphere

SP002

The Cavorite Sphere

'The First Men in the Moon' is another great story from H.G. Wells and a memorable film with Lionel Jeffries as the scientist Mr Cavor, inventor of the gravity deifying liquid Cavorite. I just loved the space craft in the story, 'The Cavorite Sphere', as soon as I decided to start this business building models, it had to be one of the first things I made. The model is a little more complex than the Iron Mole, the sphere comes in two halves, there are thirty two bumpers that need gluing on and a hatch that can be glued in the open or closed position, two valve wheels for the hatch finish the model. The whole model sits on a moonscape base.

Cthulhu Statue

Cthulhu Statue

Beneath the waves, in ancient Rlyeh he sleeps till the stars are right. This statue of great Cthulhu is a little over four and a half inches high, it's in three pieces, a stone column base, Cthulhu and a pair of wings. The model can be painted anyway you like, as a statue or in some monstrous fleshy tones, see the Necronomicon for exact colours, (at the expense of your sanity!!!). Would be great as a collector piece or maybe a marker in a RPG.

Steampunk Airship

SP003

£12

Steampunk Airship

This Airship inspired by Jules Verne's story 'Master of the World', would be a great marker for an RPG or as a collectors piece, (many more pieces on the way). The model comes in seven parts and is easy to assemble, and great fun to paint.

R'lyeh Monolith

CT002

rlyeh_monolith

£4

Rlyeh Monolith

This is just the start of a full set of scenery for the city of Cthulhu and the other denizens of Rlyeh. It's a simple one piece model, just over two inches in hight, but a start to something bigger or a nice marker for board games and RPG's.
