I now have a nice fixed point of reference for taking pics. I rest the camera on my desk to take it. Lighting tends to be my biggest issue. Probably because I end up taking my pics @ 2am, and I havent figured out how to over-ride the camrea and have the flash kick on even if the camera thinks there is enough light.

And I still have 3 more packages incoming. 2 Trades, and a Chapterhouse package.

I need Green Stuff, more paint, and some weathering pigments, and I should be good to go indefinately after all that comes in.... or once the Maxmini SteamPunk weapons are released.

Light box time? I made one the other week, which only took me about 10 minutes and $5 to make. Just take a cardboard box, cut off the top and one side, tape tin foil on the whole of the inside and put a paper backdrop on it and you're done. So easy and effective!

I like your huge swords too. haha

Hey again Wolfshadow , this thread has certainly progressed a lot since i first commented , your picture quality is looking a lot better and the models are looking pretty good to me. I like the effect you have done on Libby's power weapon looking pretty effective.

Keep up the good work and i think you mentioned plastic grey knights somewhere a while a go , could this be true ( Fingers crossed)

Your army is looking good and I like all the Tech your adding to your marines. I can't wait until my Red Corsairs Destroys your chapter and takes that Tech off their bones. Huron could use more bionics.
BTW whats the name of your Master of the Forge? I have a Dreadnought sarcophagus for his broken body that needs a name.

Little friendly advice for the Ebon Guard. Stay clear of the Maelstrom, and you Chapter will strive.

...
At first I had a hard time with taking photos. Few pointers: Light, lots of light. If you can, use a piece of paper to set your white balance. Tripods and timers. At least make sure you use the timer feature. That way you dont have to hold it and the camera doesn't move when taking the photo. If it's a dark model use a light background, vise versa. Lastly and one of the most important steps: Editing Software. I use Photoshop but there are other really great free editing programs out there. All I do is crop, Auto levels, Auto colour, Auto contrast. Save, done.

That being said can we see a group photo of you army together. I'm not sure I can wait to see it in person.

My MOTF doesnt have a name yet.... or a model. I've pretty much decided that he's going to be converted. I dont like the Techmarine torso I got all that much. It's too busy... to many dangling cables that dont seem to have an actual use....

Although from the brief preview, I may have to pick up the new IA book... hopefully people will let me use the rules for the SOM chapter master.

@ Strofoam04. The Scarborough Town Centre GW doesnt care what time you come in to game anymore. they have 40K nights etc, but you can come in at random times and game as well now.

Maybe you can De-chaos a iron warriors warsmith or something like that for your MOTF. IIRC it does not have that many wires and where that is lacking maybe look into getting some guitar string of the thicker variety to Create your own wires. I had done something similar to make a Space marine captain, so i could attach a bolt pistol to his PF arm and gave me the free hand for an auspex, but unfortunately that mini is half a world away from me so i cannot get any pictures for it.

SternGuard Combi-Melta (AKA SternGuard # 6) 4 more, 2 with Combi-Weapons to finish a full squad, or possibly 4 with Combi-Meltas so I can have 3 in each Combat Squad. The other combi-meltas will have to be converted somehow. Looking at possibly getting some of the Chapterhouse Melta or flamer bitz for that.

I got some paint for Xmas. So between the colors and washes that I got, it should be enough to 'finish'the guys I have. Amazing the difference what 4 colors of paint and washes can make.

Hey man been looking at this thread of yours, i gotta say that your modelling is amazing, im not really one to talk about painting as im kinda av, but i would suggest some highlights on ur squaddies to lighten em up a bit, the whole thing just looks a bit dark, but again im not one to talk and thats just my opinion, great work tho

I'm not partcularly good at edge highlighting, and I tend to f*** it up when I try, so for the moment I've held off on that. I'd prefer to be a bit more subtle and darken things down with washes rather than lighten them up with highligting. I may do some zenithal rather than edge highlighting at a later point, once my skill is up to it.

Things will also get weathered with weathering powders once I get some, and decide on a basing scheme.

Much of my limitations are supply based at the moment, as I'm getting back into the hobby on a VERY limited budget basis, with most of my purchases coming from trades. Model wise out of pocket cash purchases have been limited to my initial purchase of glue, several colors of paint and a can of spray primer. I really need some better brushes, some weathering pigments and some more colors of paint, especially blue shades for power weapons, and some more metallics for general use.

So... small, boring picless update.

Things have been quiet on the modelling front, as I just built a new computer. So thats been taking my time up a bit.

Buuuuutttt.

Prezmas just released his wonderful 'SteamPunk' weapons set, so I ordered a couple. And my ChapterHouse shoulder pads order came in the mail. So I have lots of 'hand' covered shoulder pads. Oh, and a friend of mine said that he was going to order me some of the larger shoulder pads from CH for my termies.

I had been unaware that you had started a blog wolf (I get in the habit of not looking for new ones, just the ones im subbed in already). Love the use of kit bashes, my favorite thing to do, especially with some of the bits you got, like the rippers. Havent seen the steampunk weapons, I'll have to check em out.

Thanks. Kitbashes are what most of what my conversions will be.

Although I'm looking for a local supply of GS at an affordable price so I can at least attempt to do some major conversions. I have some rather (for my skill level anyway) ambitious plans for my MOTF/Chapter Master.
