Default Chaos Undivided tactical team

Hi,

Whilst working on my terminator project i took a short break focusing a bit on photography - with the help of one of my friends we took this picture which to date i think is the best mini pic in my collection.

The photo was taken with a tripod and shutter speed close to 1/2 sec F18 i think - no manipulation in photoshop except cutting it apart to show some of the team members better. We used 2 20w halogen lights 10 -15 cm from the minis.

Remember to adjust the white balance to match the specific lights you use.



It was quite fun break from the painting, comments are welcome.

Looks really slick. Some of the best Night Lords I've seen. They look like Night Lords anyway, thankfully no funny hats with wings ;D

Anyway for a slight improvement on the pics, try to have the lamps in between the camera and the models, and not directly over top of them. You want the shadows behind the models, not underneath or in front of them if possible.

Anyway, what varnish do you use on those guys? Looks really nice and matte, which is something I have a hard time finding in any sprays anymore. GW Purity Seal is semigloss now

Thanks - but if I'm not mistaken nightlords are dark blue with gold/copper banding. To tell the truth i actually despise the goldish metallic as they build up to thick in order to give coverage - using boltgun is much more forgiving.

You are right about the light though - wish i had thought about it then I have still to take some pictures on another squad like this, but these guys are the out of production metal chaos marines, yes i have quite many out of production minis in my collection...

I used testors dullcote - very nice gives perfect dull every time, but comes in a small can and it's pretty expensive - first a couple of layers with GW's then a layer or two with dullcote, but beware - it wears quickly so be carefull about your minis after this treatment.

When are you available to come over and take pics of my stuff? ;D

That's how I wanted my White Talons to look.

10-15cm sounds awfully close for a couple of Halogen lights. The plastic minis didn't start to melt at all did they?

They look awsome. It just shows what good photos can do for your minis.
