Along the way I'll also mention how I photographed things as I am supposed to be writing about photography.
All shots with the trusty Nikon D5100, using the 18-55mm lens. I tried using the M setting ( I need to find my manual to find out what that means) but ended up falling back on A (Aperture Priority). Set to f16, I used a 10sec timed shutter (misplaced my remote) and ended up using the Incandescent White Balance and an EV of +1.0 or zero as the white metal objects were washing out. The background was from a pack of 22" x 28" Poster board bought at Staples. The other side is a lighter blue. The lighting was my same desk lamp setup, but this time no other lights in the room on and dusk outside. The lighting seemed a tad harder than I would like.
|Marauder Giant, Azhag the Slaughterer and a Lead Belcher|
|Not the right wheels and no scythes.|
|4th Edition I think. Solid, if basic paint job.|
|A little oops in shipping.|
|I knew this is what he looked like.|
|Where the sword should be and a gap that needs filling.|
|Other side where the barrel should be.|
So I guess the lesson is, don't give up. Don't pay more than you're willing to pay. Do a little homework to make sure that you know exactly what you're getting and what it is worth to you.
Also anybody have any tips for breaking the Marauder Giant of his base. I'd like to see if can get his feet to hang off less.
