They are smaller than the more recent GW plastic dwarfs, but not so much so that they look out of place. I will try to add a comparison picture, but I don't like the new plastics so I will have to track something down to compare them too.

Wish I could see these better.

 

Your photos would be four times better if you were able to crop away half of the surrounding background. All of these posted images waste most of their pixels on solid black or grey background...

 

If you have not already got software that does that, one word:

 

IrfanView.

Could you post a picture that you took that uses the app you mention? I'm not really sure what you mean by the "extra pixels."  When you zoom in on a painted mini that is the size of a bottle cap with anything less than a top-grade camera I find the pictures look much, much worse.  Thanks for the input, though, I'm always looking to improve my photography.

The extra pixels are all of the dots in the picture that are not part of the dwarf.

 

I will have a go with your picture of the axe dwarf. He will serve as a test subject. I am currently blessed with a tiny device and on a full-size screen this might make no difference.

 

Cropping and zooming are completely different. I agree with everything you said next:

I would not suggest any changes to lighting, zoom factor, focal distance. Keep all that the same. Edited by TGP

      Hi chums!
       
      This is the latest Kickstarter project, expanding our fantasy range this time, and bringing light to the ones we have that might not have been noticed. Along with some super cool female minis, we have some brand new scenics too, and a whole bunch of add on bundles.
      I'll post more on the lead up, but for now if you're interested, could you click the "notify me" on the pre launch page and it will help the algorithms, and you know algorithms are the new gods!

      Right on the heels of their last shipped campaign, Midlam Miniatures is back. After several years of halflings, the gnomes are back!

      Also available in different pledge combos, two of the older campaigns:
       
      I already own this one from 2018 (Common - Garden Gnomes):

      Venomous Flowers by PrintYourMonsters.  These are 3d resin prints.  Of course, they might also be only harmless spring flowers on some sci-fi world. 
       

       
      The smallest one is a bit over 1" across, the largest is taller than a humanoid figure.  Overall I've been very happy with the Plants and Rocks files.

      Taking a hiatus on the Mocking Beast.
      Trying to gain some victory in numbers on my Bonesium Horde.  I have completed the beetle swarms, spider swarms, and skeletons without WIP. 
       
      I’m going to do the goblins now.  I plan two batches: one yellow/ochre, and the other tangerine.  Some nice “non-Greenskins.”
       

       
      Several of these required boiling.  Some are still leaning.  The spears are straighter.  One of these was the beneficiary of a weapon swap.  I had given Danar, Male Assassin 77030 his shield for a spiked shield.  In return, we have a dual wielding goblin!

      The finished version of the mini WiP I was sharing earlier today.
       
      I tried to use washes and played with basing this time around.
       
      Any suggestions would be great as I don't feel as proud for this one as I did the Dark Chronicler Astrid I did back on May.
