Hi All.

I've been a bit quiet here on HF, due to a very busy workload, and not having had a camera for a few months could'nt take piccies of anything.

Finally got one last night and took a few photo's, still learning the settings on the darn thing so forgive the quality of the pics

(mainly the lighting - the flash level is adjustable and I hav'nt got that right yet)

hope you like these...

















the figures ar'nt quite finished still need painting on the giants left hand and both feet, as well as a few points on the Eldar vehicle

They both look good Roland. I think the background in the first photo is too stark if you use a sheet of coloured paper- grey or blue it will show off the light skin tones better.

I agree, normaly use royal blue, but this was more a test of the camera than anything else.

Thanks

Excellent job on both. I like the snake skin look of the walker.

Thanks for sharing

Thanks all

Yeah!! I know what you mean Ian. My own PC crashed 2 weeks ago, and using the works one is not the same. Been practising with the camera and various levels and backdrops, still seem to be having a bit of trouble with lighting though.

Finished a Griffon rider for a comm. jobbie yesterday and will post pics to-morrow morn. Hopefully with better results.

I think the fig is quite good but I'm not sure what the pics will be like... you guys can decide.

Cheers
Roland
