Marauders WIP

Here's the progress on my first unit for my new warhammer army. I'm a bit of a novice when it comes to warhammer so this new army is going to be my way of learning the rules. I figured because there is so much choice in the warriors of chaos army book, I could always revisit the army list at a later date and make it good.

Anyway, I hate the marauder models so I'm jazzing them up. I want them to pop like the picture in the army book. If people can recommend any parts to use the make them stand out a bit more that would be good. Fur cloaks and better heads are a priority (I'm on a budget though so be sparing).

Light box experimentation

Ok all,

I have spent the last 30mins or so having another go with the light box. This time using a fairly detailed mini that I have previously photographed. The previous photos were horrible. All the subtle highlights were bleached out and the model was left looking cartoon like.

This time I hoped to find the best way to photograph the model in as much a natural state as possible. Unfortunately the camera is not great and the lights I am using dont appear to be up to scratch either. I think I will need to replace the bulbs with high watt natural white light bulbs instead as the photos are obviously yellowish in shade.

Below are the results. They follow in order from 2 lights with flash, through to just one light with no flash. The pics have not been improved using any fancy digital imaging software. As I said I want to get the most natural photo possible.

Light box construction

Ok, The ftw collaborative post recently concerning photography was a big help for me because I have never been able to take a good photo of my minis. The lighting is always bad, they are blurry and often I have to take loads just to get a few good ones.

So built a light box similar to the ones listed on the post. Here it is:
I had a quick go with it using an old model. The results are not great yet. Ill have a longer experiment later i think. Also I think the camera is just not up to the task, its quite old now so maybe a new one is in order.
Any way here are the results:
