Can't drown a witch

Post by Ross » Fri Aug 03, 2012 9:50 pm

Snapped this model from Little Wars this year for something like $3. A beautiful piece from Reaper (and yet I haven't been able to find it on their site :( ), I'd intended to paint just a little but ended up following through <ahem>

Not to be prideful or cockey or anything, but photo's don't actually do it justice to the naked eye... either that or my eyesight is delightfully slipping away :D

Wow, that is nice work and the sculpt is a ripper.

Problem with Reaper is they have so many figures to wade through, haven't seen this one either.
I mostly use Reaper paints and flick through the site quite often. No postage if you buy $50 worth of goodies which I don't have any difficulty doing.

How are you setting up for your photo's, can you switch it over to manual operation?

Thanks PP.

I'm setting the camera for Macro, no flash, and 10 second timer. I post a light above the model and in front too.
There's something about this camera I haven't been able to get the hang of. In crap light, good light, moodlight, Israelite, with my old camera I could take the sweetest pics, but this new one (cheap piece of monkey crap) I just can't get it right.

I'm definitely going to search for this figure next time I visit the Reaper shop, you've sold me on it.
