Right, I've been lurking for a while, viewed the mandatory Jasevx and DeadleyHeadley threads for inspiration. I have finally plucked up the courage to show my mini's to the Warseer world.

A couple of points;

1, I use a SonyEricsson 810i as my main camera, I have 2 other digicams (5Meg Sony With broken lens and 1.5 Meg Fuji that is old and eats batteries for fun). There will be no complaints about poor photography, no appologies if the photo is poo then it is poo. Simple as that!

2, I am collecting Ultramarines, IG (Cadian infantry and an Armoured company for Apocalypse) some 'Nids and Eldar. To stop boredom I will switch between them all, I have a terrible boredom threshold! Plus I find painting one colour too often drives me mad!

3, Erm, there is no 3.

Ok some photos from my ultras,

My work space, with a batch of ultramarines on the go. I find if I sit to paint, batch painting is best for me. I get bored too easily!

Some Armour! I love tanks!

Close up of the Dread, arms off for easier painting/weapon options. And finally...[url]

My glory hole! A small box room under the stairs where I can leave my stuff out of the reach of the household ripper swarm (my 5 kids!). C&C welcome, more to follow, must keep motivated!

I hope to finally paint an army to completion, one day. I just have to keep away from the new CSM and forge bloody world!

1) a little hint about camera phones is that they work a lot better in the daylight. indoors they tend to have that grainy effect.

2) always love seeing an ultra painting log, everyone seems to have their own little take on them.

3) good luck

Cheers Titan136, I have tried some daylight shots:

Left to right: Razorback with Hbolters, Razorback with Lascannon, Rhino, converted razorback(started lift as a poor painted black/silver rhino, stripped then all the crap removed and finally given new life).

Stupidly I glued the roof of the razorbacks down, so I will have to buy more rhinos! Doh!

Landraider shots to follow!

Here is my Landraider. It started life as a 10 carboot sale buy (with a shonky Rhino in the bundle) plastered in thick silver and black paint. Some stripping, modeling knife abuse and a slap of blue here it is!

Looks like you're of to a good start, quite like the h/bolter razorback conversion
