Default be part of my army Mk 2

ive been painting very slowly lately - buckets of revision, and coursework.

the names on these bases are:

Drogonimcam (grenade launcher)
Thunder (the secong g with a =][= on the shoulder
Tylamon
Pollo
and pieter

and the grenadiers:



can anyone give me tip on how to take proper pictures? these make the paint job look really crap!

Nice models, like the desert scheme (I for one am kinda of tired of catachan green, if you know what I mean). As for the pictures, I take them far away and then crop and resize them. Also try to use daylight when possible. One question though, why is one of your IG's name "chicken"?

So, do I still get to be represented by a rough rider?

indeed. You answered one of my questions in the newsletter, therefore you get to be a rough rider.

That's me :P
For a few years it was a nickname (not meant as an insult - I was in Italy and and Italian with no English at all figured it was the closest to Paul (Paulo being pronounced differently to cut a long story short)

The scheme is very good and they are well painted. ABout taking better photos there are some guides in hobby...
I think otherwise there should be some on CMON.

I hope I get to be in the army. I did post :-\

Anyways, back on topic. I LOVE the desert scheme. A lot different and unique from the regular green (bleh).
However, I think you should add some color to the outside of the base's. The black kinda draws the eyes to the, and ruins the affect. I think you should paint it a nice light brown, to match the top of the bases.

As to taking pictures, try to have a strong white light, and maybe put a blank card (prefferably a light grey shade), to take away all the distractions from behind.
