Indeed lol, thank you for the heads up.

One a related note, i've found that in terms of scale from smallest to biggest it goes, Old foundry old west, Draculas America, New foundry old west.

Some new minis painted for my congregation posse (slowly getting there!)

Haven't decided on names yet, first up a chap (for when the posse is more established) armed with a repeater.

Next up the second in command with pistol and sword(work in progress).

...And finally the leader (also work in progress), tried a grey(possibly ex-confederate?) coat and skull face paint.

Now just waiting for my northstar order to come free to finish the posse!

You might want to try a darker background colour, to give the camera a better chance to get a good exposure of the photo.

I found with my light box that for quick snaps the black background worked much better than the white one. I mid coloured one would probably be best if you have it.

That makes a difference!

Can actually see the figures now, who are coming on very nicely.

Love the use of foundry darkest Africa. You have captured a very gritty tone.

Thank you, the DA range is possibly may favourite.

Some more minis, no idea but they keep coming out sideways and seemingly when I open on them on my computer they ''autocorrect'' but dont stay that way.
