14554: Kragmarr Dwarf Captain

Recommended Posts

The background lighting and reflection makes it difficult to see the figure.

 

Could you try taking pictures with a backdrop? Even a sheet of plain white paper or single colour piece of fabric can do the trick.

I only have a mobile camera. It doesn't seem to capture the colors in a realistic way no matter how I do it. I also don't have any decent lightning for taking pictures. 

 

I'd appreciate advice on how to take better pictures, but a new camera is not in the budget. :P

I take my pics with my iPhone. Go check out Doug's Miniature photography 101 thread.

 

http://forum.reapermini.com/index.php?/topic/55357-miniatures-photography-101/?fromsearch=1

 

Took some advice from there. How is this in comparison?

 

I feel it is better, but the colors are still not there. At least you should be able to make out the miniature properly. His beard is brown, not yellow for instance. ANd definitely not the same color as the skin. Which at least to my eyes, it seems to be in the picture. :P

      This lil guy had been sitting on my shelf for a while. Decided to tint some metallic w blue paint for his armor. Pretty happy how it turned out. As always, feedback is welcome

      So, I just had to show off this pic.  I'm playing in a 5e Rappan Athuk campaign, and needed to make 3 characters.  I chose to model mine after the characters from the old Lost Vikings video game.  
       
      In order from left to right:
      Olaf the Stout, Life Domain Cleric.
      Baelog the Fierce, Totem Warrior Barbarian.
      Erik the Swift, Battlenaster Fighter (my main).
       
      Sorry, I just really loved this picture.

      I liked painting the dark skin of this one, as opposed to the lighter skinned dwarves I've been doing.  I enjoyed this one a lot!  It'll finish out my trio of dwarves for the current campaign I'm in.

      Meh, needed a cleric for my party.  Seemed a decent fit.

      So I needed a break from all the Bones 4 minis. And dug into the Bones 3 stash for variations sake.
      I found one of my old modules -The Village of Hommlet, and spent some time reading. Ah, The Moathouse! Brings back memories!
      And I got inspired to do the Bandits from the Bones 3 Stoneskull expansion, as they were similar in style to the ones I recently painted. And to flesh out the band, I added a couple of other Bones 3 minis that were in the same drawer, and that I thought might fit in a band of robbers.
      One quick paint job later:
       

      I want your money...and your life!
      From the "Dwarf Kings Companions" add-on set, this is the
      77574 Dwarf Royal Weaponmaster
      Sculpted by Jason Wiebe
      30mm base
       
       
       

      Just add the bones 4 ones to this lot, and there we have a goodly group of bandits.  Or a unit of irregulars / rabble or whatnot in some wargame or other.
