Firewarrior painting and picture taking.

First off I am pretty happy with the results so far, but it is still taking forever, but that is probably just me. I am painting whole squads at a time and I am still on the first squad. This picture was taken after i just did the devlan mud wash on the armor and badab black wash on the cloth.

Here is another shot that is a little bit better. It is going good so far and I haven't even gotten to the detail work. It is taking a while and my ADD and painting are pretty close to being in all out war with each other, so I am taking a little break to post.

Any advice on how to get better photos? I need to figure out how to manually focus the camera, but it is my wife's and she is at a baby shower, I will ask her when she gets back, but if anyone has any other picture taking advice let me know. (camera is an olympus C-750)


  1. I am not very good at photography, but I know it helps to get a lot of natural light and have a monotone background. I try to take shots over a large poster-board that I bought at CVS.

    I really glad the painting recipe is working out for you. Now you can have a little fun and start playing with the paint to water ratio!

    I am watching your tau list posts pretty carefully to see what I can glean from them for my tau!

  2. Tomorrow is my Firewarrior troops post. Yeah thanks for the advice on painting it helped me a lot, painting is still hard, but at least now I am not frustrated with the results. The reason it has taken me so long to get painting is becasue i did not like how my models turned out, but now they are turning out really good, to the point where I actually like them a lot!

  3. I can't wait to see how they turned out. Fielding a fully painted army is a great experience.
