The tale so far - Pictures of the armies

To mark the launch of WFB8, a few of us are starting new armies, starting at 750 points and then growing in 250 point blocks.

The tale so far - Pictures of the armies

Post by daniel_cave00 » Mon Aug 09, 2010 9:21 am

This is a placeholder thread for the pictures of the armies on our regular meetings. I will be keeping a log of who attends, whether they pass or fail the painting challenge and all importantly the pictures :)

I will keep this thread locked for the time being (if I can figure out how the hell to do that) as there is nothing really to discuss.

So in the battle between man and camera it would appear that the camera was being relatively uncooperative! Quite a few of the shots have too sharp a focus (stupid wildlife settings the lady has on there) and some parts of peoples army are out of focus.

Still I will put what I have up on the forum tonight when I have resized etc. That and I will bloody well learn the camera for the 14th September.

10th August

Challenges completed - 8 (Me, Paul, Les, Phil, Simon, Dave, Martin, Rich D)
Challenge not met - 1 (Poi)

Fantastic outcome guys, I did not believe we would even get a 50% success rate so well done guys. Poor Poi picking the largest army though every model has paint on it which is still a good achievement.

So onto the armies, in the order in which I took photos for the sake of simplicity.

Rich Day and the Ogre Kingdom

Phil and his Empire

Image
Image
Image
Image
Image

Martin and his High Elves

Image
Image

Les and his gobbos

Image
Image
Image
Image
Image
Image

Dave and his Chaos Warrors

Image
Image

Mine! Vampire Counts

Image
Image
Image
Image

Paul and his gobbos

Image
Image
Image

Simon and his Bret... ummm Tomb Kings

Image
Image
Image

Rodgers Rats!

Image
Image

Well done again guys!

Next month (14th September) we are up to 1000 points. I look forward to more progress shots throughout the month and some more excellent army pictures (I will promise to get decent shots of everyones army this tim, some of the ones I had were just unusable which is why some armies have more shots than others).

OK so as you should all know by now tomorrow is the next painting milestone. I have organised a photographer for the evening (the lady indoors) so if people can set up their army on a table as soon as they get in I can register you whilst the photo is taken.

I will start drawing lots at about 7:20, which should leave more than enough time for people to get there and register whilst leaving enough time to get the game done.

If I can persuade her, there might even be a couple of mid game battle shots as well. So make sure you dont turn up with food down you or your mishap will likely be published here and people will get to laugh for weeks/months/years at your misfortune :)

Yeah last week was very much a write off and this one isnt looking too great either. Between visiting parents and work I have not yet found the time to do all the necessary photo manipulations and uploading. I have barely been able to sit at my home pc for more than 30 mintues at one time since last Sunday!

Still they should be up for Sunday, thats the best I can offer at the moment though.
