Default Soul Drinkers - Army Painting Challenge 2012

Here's my Plog for the 2012 Army Painting Challenge. There'll normally be a link to the related blog post for each post - because that's how I roll - where there'll be more pictures, information etc. Anyway, that's enough text for now: onto the WIP pictures:

I'll be putting links to each finished unit here, or the latest WIP for that unit, so that I can keep the thread more organised.

March Finished:


April Finished:


May Finished:



Also, I have an Imperial Fists (and Hive Fleet Kraken) plog here for those interested.

Are these Night Lords? Because they seem to like hanging out in the dark. Lol

More light so that I may view your minis, please!

The purple appears smooth and tidy so far, so an excellent beginning.

Whilst DK has an unfortunate tendency toward humour, some brighter lit pictures would be great so the detail is clearer.

I will follow this project. And I know what a problem cameras can be so I hope it will turn out better in the future.

I agree with Dave's sentiments on the purple, but some better lit photos would be nice.

Thanks for the kind comments - I have nearly finished painting these Marines (I think) so will try and get some more pictures (hopefully with better lighting) up soon. Lighting has always been an issue, as it's either too bright (especially in Summer) or too dark (especially in Winter), which isn't helped by the current grey skies. Although I will try and get finished pictures at the weekend, as there is normally sunlight at some point during the day, WIP pictures will normally be worse, as the lighting won't be as great.

I'm also going to be working on some houserules, which I will post in my blog

I've never understood why people use sunlight for photography. Get two or three lamps, point them at your minis, take a picture.

They look pretty nice though. Purple is a fun color to work with.
