Hi, I've been a longtime reader on the Dakka Dakka forums, but this will be my first time to share some of my work with the community. I'd thought I'd get y'all's opinions on what I've been working on for the year and a half or so that I've been playing the game.

First things first, I apologize for the underwhelming quality of the photos, camera phones just aren't what they're cracked up to be... :S
Thanks, and comments/criticism are welcome!

First, here's a forest I made.

Here's my favorite piece of terrain, a Lizardman pyramid.

Here's my super scary Altar of Khorne.

This is a ruined building I made for 40K, but I guess it could work in Fantasy too.

Thanks for sharing. There has certainly been a massive leap in your painting ability since your berserker! I think that you can get better quality pictures by taking photos from further away... camera phones are not really meant for focusing on things up close, so try at a distance of at least 1 metre / 3 feet and see if that is any better (though models will obviously look smaller in the pictures, they will at least be more in focus)

Check out our new, fully plastic tabletop wargame - Maelstrom's Edge, made by Dakka!

Yeah, I think you may be right. In the camera phone they looked okay up close, but now on the computer they are really out of focus. I'll try to take some new pics at a distance like you suggested, or try and scrounge up my digital camera I have lying around somewhere...

Very nice, you have a good start going there. The chaos lord on the dragon is so awesome.

Alright, I found my digital camera, so yall can take a look at some slightly better pics

I'll go ahead and repost pics of a lot of the same models, and hopefully they won't cause eyes to bleed this time

Here's my first unit of Clanrats, the first rank is done.

Wow- you've come a long ways! Archaon and the Skaven chief look particularly good.

Infinity: Way, way better than 40K and more affordable to boot!

Thanks for the feedback, guys!

I've been bitten a bit by the painting bug lately, so I thought I'd post a model I got finished just earlier today.

It's a ratling gun, something a bit more interesting than painting countless rank-and-file Clanrats

Nice Clanrats, I envy people with the balls to paint clanrats nicely. I struggle with that task. Do you play with these models? Your selection seems to be rather mishmash with 40k and Fantasy stuff mixed together.

Kepp it up!

Well, I play with all the WFB Chaos and Skaven I posted. But not together, of course.

I decided to throw in some 40K to just kinda' show where I've came from in painting terms. I played 40K for a bit less than a year, and then I switched over to WFB a little over a year ago.

The Chaos lord on the dragon is intense. I love it.

Here's some better pics of my Clanrats and Bloodletters, and a better pic of the front of my Grey Seer. That photo came out horrible.

And I also thought to include a couple other pieces of terrain I made.
