Pyrrhus of Epirus


Just completed the basing on this command stand today, and it just so happened that I also received a photography light tent in the post. No better time to try it out I guess.

Below are the first attempts. The figures are from Aventine miniatures once again.






 Comparison with roman command.
The lighting box in use, must remember to switch the lights off as they get bloody hot.

  2. The detail on the figures has come up great. I hope they lead your armies to many victories, and remember, a Pyrrhic victory is still a victory.

    I haven't seen a light tent before. Does it mean you don't need a flash?

    1. Cheers, yep I'll take any victory that comes my way.
      The light tent cost about $30 from China on E-bay including delivery. I still used a flash with these shots, still have to do some experimentation and play around a bit as my camera is pretty basic.

  3. Really nice! Love those Aventines.

    Have you downloaded Picasa? It's free, and you can edit the photos after, re-cropping, or turning up or down the lighting.

  4. Hi Simon. No not as yet re Picasa, sometime soon hopefully. I tried placing a couple of comments on your blog but I'm a bit dubious about having my full name plastered across the bloggersphere. Paranoid, maybe ...... it comes with my line of work.
    Anyway your rule set looks very interesting, I would be very interested when you finally publish.
    Cheers, Guido.

  5. Hi Guido, yes Google+ is not for the fainthearted!

    Not long now to publication of the rules, gulp.

    Re the photos, if you turn the flash off, Picasa will sort the rest out. It's a nifty bit of software.

    Best, Simon
