Much better ethereal pics






My first ever webcam pic (I now know how to use it). It's my Tau bladeswift cadre, spent days on em, and kept going back to improve em till they looked perfect.

Fuzzy pics and it's kind of hard to pick out the detail. The models look pretty good personally. I like the converted Fire Warrior.

They seem to be good but webcams give bad pictures your really need a digital camera.

The pictures are bad, and, honestly, the models don't look that great either. You need to spend some more time with your models IMO since they seem rather rushed. From what I can see, the paints are thick. To solve this all you need is patience and water - water down your paints a little bit (I do about 25% water 75% paint usually) and then be patient and apply 2-3 layers. It really helps smoothen the paint and bolden the colors.
Also, there are parts that are just plain sloppy and the paint goes on to other sections of the model. All this takes is time, go over your minis when you're done and clean up all of the sloppy edges.
They don't seem to be highlighted or shaded either. Use a thin black pen, toothpick, or small brush to "blackline" the armor - painting black in the cracks between the armor. Also, use a brighter color over the edges to simulate light hitting the armor.

You're off to a good start, but they need some work. Just be patient and try your best and I'm sure they'll come out great if you take my advice.
Good luck!

yea, spend some time on them. Get a painting lesson at your GW, they are usually happy to supply a model and spend some time helping you out.

And you should get a camera that actually makes the pictures visible... :

1. The nearest GW is about 2 and a half hrs away, and my parents will NOT drive me there.

2. You have made the machine spirit within my camera cry.
