Great stuff. I wish I could sculpt figures like that!

Thanks Djdood I just wish my pictures would come out better.

If anyone has suggestions I am using a Canon Powershot S410 digital elf.

Hi malleman, try taking photos without the flash in good, natural light. That would take the "shine" off which distorts the colour of your painting slightly.

Your figures still look good but I know what you mean about photography changing the appearance!

Another thing to try:

With my camera, if I set-it to the "macro" setting and attempt to take photos close-up - they always blur.
The only way to get good close-ups is to use a tripod and the cameras built-in shutter timer. Anything else and the uncontrollable, small movements of your hands will cause blurring.

Hey guys, thanks for the tips! I will try them next time I take pictures.

I was reading the company web log for today on the bbs site and this is what I saw!

1. Somebody asked about new monster minis. We are sending the space boar and death probe to casting now. Reaper has good dragons and Iron Crown has a sun snake.

Talk about cool!

Malleman - I picked up a Death Probe and 3 of the Space Boars while at Origins. Good job on those. I hope to have them painted in a week or so and will post pics.

Scoutdad,

I am sure you realize this, but the tusk on the space boar were made to where you could curve them up.

Sounds like you got the herd. Did you buy a momma, poppa, and a baby space boar? Laughing

Now your Lyrans have something to eat Twisted Evil !

Also, please hurry up and paint, because I can't wait to see pics of your finished monitor! Glad to see you had a fun and safe trip.

I bought so many new ones, that I haven't looked that closely at it, but if that is the case, they will be bent up prior to painting.

Now to decide what colors to paint them...

That Space Boar should go quite nicely with the Pre-ISC Five Race ships, when Module Y2 is released!

Gary:
Steve had the Y2 counter sheet on display at Origins... you are going to LOVE it!.

The ISC Y2 ship designs are based off of existing miniatures (for Silent Death, I think?) and the counter art is simply the image of those ships reduced and overlayed onto the racial colors.

They are quite possibly the best looking counters ever produced for a SFU product. And since it's SFB - those are only the 1/2-inch counters. There are no mega-hex counters. I can only imagine what those would look like.
