    Default [pinholecam] The World of Warhammer

    I been a miniatures painter for as long as I can remember. Started with military models (esp. tanks), dabbled a bit with resin kits but disliked the many assembly touch ups needed for such expensive items (gorgeous models though). Finally I settled on wargaming, with its addictive combination of modeling, painting and gaming. Though the lack of time nowadays have meant that the painting and wargaming has stopped, I still look over the painted minis fondly.


    High Elf General on horse back
    The High Elves of Ulthuan are nearly immortal, and their Mages are among the best in the known world. Elf armies are generally small and although lightly armored their soldiers strike with inhuman dexterity and skill honed over centuries of training.

    Thanks.
    I have 40K stuff too (definitely love the fluff for 40k over fantasy), but my painting on them is

    You can get GW stuff from Comics Mart (if they are still around) or Paradigm Infinitium (PI for short; which is certainly alive and kicking). I always went to the latter.
    PI :http://www.pi.com.sg/site/index.php?
    Nice selection of off-brand boardgames (yes, not Monopoly or Risk) as well since they are the distributors.

    High Elf Mage

    Those who follow the path of High Magic, or True Magic as it is sometimes called, are amongst the most skilled mages ever to weave a spell. The mages of Ulthuan see the Winds of Magic as a whole, and can easily thwart lesser Wizards who rely on single strands of the whole.

    Thanks, bkgnd was an old photo of the Great Wall (Sima Tai IIRC). Took the photo around 8yrs ago when I went there.

    CHAOS
    From the far north come the legions of Chaos, led by mighty champions of the Dark Gods. Raised in battle, these great warriors fight for glory and the favour of their gods, seeking immortality and everlasting power.

    Exalted Champion of Chaos

    The frozen north spawns the hardiest warriors of all, and those that lead them to battle are called the Champions of Chaos. Each is a paragon of deadly ability and lethal intent. Some ascend to command entire nations but the majority dedicate themselves to becoming ruthless killers, butchering all those who cross their path. Those so favored by the dark gods are gifted with hideous mutations in the likeness of their patron, so more to deliver more death and destruction in their name.

    Chaos Sorcerer Lord

    Of all the mortal warriors across the civilisation of the world, the Lords of Chaos are feared most of all, for they are true gods amongst men. Clad in baroque armour, they tower above even other Champions of Chaos, and those brave enough to stand against them are but feeble children by comparison. A Chaos Lord's indomitable will is forged in the fires of war, his skills tempered in the crucible of battle, and his blade eternally quenched in blood.

    Thanks for the kind remarks.
    My shots pale in comparison to the many nice toy threads posted in this sub-forum and always serve as an inspiration.


    Color is straight off camera.

    PP is the usual workflow : crop >levels > curves if needed >resize > 1pt sharpen if needed.

    Bkgnd is from what I can get within reach of me in my room where I shoot. The main consideration would be that it has to match the character of the fantasy race I am doing. (Eg. Good guys on clean/bright fortifications; natural forests, etc; Bad guys on black )

    Lighting is a mish-mash of strobes, table lamp and reflectors. Still learning and playing around with them. The difficulty is to control the lights since the models are small (28mm tall).
    The High Elf ones take a well lit 'good guys' approach. Strobe w/ diffuser on top left, reflector placed rather near on the right. Bkgnd is lighted with table lamp.
    Chaos takes a darker, moodier lighting with one table lamp to the right and no reflector to get more shadows. The sorcerer had the sword and green skull on the staff lighted with strobes placed to just skim over the items only.

    Boy! I sure am running out of bkgnds and lighting ideas.

    continuing on the series....

    Daemons of Chaos
    The Daemons of Chaos are warlike fragments of divine will loosed upon the world. Blasphemous abominations drawing raw power from the Chaos Gods themselves, they are the ruination of civilization.

    Daemon Prince of Chaos

    Daemon Princes are the most deadly of all daemons. A daemon prince is a harbinger of bellowing death to an entire army of mortals, for it is destructive beyond telling, and lives only for the call to slaughter, maim and rend. It is the fury of war given form, unfettered primal rage manifest.

    Ha ha.. most of us were into more than one of the games.
    I've a lot left unpainted, but I look up to the day I have more time on my hands to paint them (in like 40yrs time when I am an old man )


    Hmm.. vortex grenades... you must be quite an old player. They stopped those since 3rd Ed.

    Very nice pics, sharp & vibrant colors.
    Your control of lightings/shadows is good too.

    Good job with the lighting with regards to the size of these miniatures. Doesn't look like there's much room to play with.
    Brand loyalty? Pffttt...| Got Flickr?
    I shoot JPEG (got a problem with that?)
