The new pics are beautiful (if pics of orcs can be described that way?). It’s great to see your mob on display. I enjoyed your blog post, too - it’s well worth the click to take a look!

The photography is excellent- certainly doesn’t look like you took it with a phone! :o

 :o  I really like how the project is coming along.
a rather impressive output and I'm in love of the cohesive disorganization of the orcs; I'm a great fan of unifying colour scheme and you manage to have them look both collectively imposing and individually menacing. :o

Thanks chaps. Looking back I can see which units were rushed to get a game in, which is absolutely fine, but also a lesson learned. Now I've got the core completed I can probably afford to take a wee bit more care on the additional units.

The photography is excellent- certainly doesn’t look like you took it with a phone! :o

I have an elderly iPhone that auto-focuses. I've found if I get too close then it will pick out one part of one mini and blur the rest. The trick has been to move backwards until I find the sweet spot where all the minis are more-or-less in focus, then crop the photo afterwards. For example, in all the originals you would have seen the background propped up and the wall behind. Don't use the zoom. It destroys the quality of the photos. The sensor also likes to mess with the colours (as you'll see on the screen if you're moving around trying to find the focus sweet spot). Again, this is a case of tilting and repositioning the camera until it behaves itself. Hope that helps.

Great looking orcses - the colour scheme works really well for them.

Excellent thread! I’ve missed this, but really nice miniatures! I quite like the dark age fantasy look!
