    The Moot strikes back!

    Hi,
    I have been a long time lurker and finally decided to use the project logs to help me finish my halfling inspired army. This is my first try at this, so I'll try to attach some pictures. First up a unit of archers. If this works out Ill put more pictures up over the next few days.

    Good colors for halflings. I demand to see a halfling lord riding on a giant rooster (could be used as griffon riding knight).

    "So cute" says the Night Goblin player...

    As far as I can tell, this is one of the few warhammer armies ever made that could possibly outdo kittens in the adorability factor.

    Re: The Moot strikes back!

    Well I have got a few minutes before I leave for my niece's birthday. Here are a few pictures of all my painted archers. EmperorNorton I have around 500 of the little stunties. All of them are GW and about 150 of them are the old halfling militia models. I originally intended to use them as an Empire army, but as my collection grew I now have plans to build empire, high elf, wood elf, orc and goblin, and bretonnian list. I use the archers as detachments in my current list. doc_cthulhu when I get back Ill post some pics that should make you happy.

    500 HALFLINGS!?!?!?!?!?! you lucky beggar. I've been scouring ebay for halflings for a long time but they rarely show up, and I dont really feel like paying GW 60 bucks for 10 of em. Not that desperate yet. Anyway nice army, I cant wait to see the whole thing.

    WIN!! win win win!

    Dug out my halflings, only about 30-40 and had grand ideas for an army, but you have 500?!

    Solid painting so far, very much looking forward to seeing the full force on display.

    Re: The Moot strikes back!

    Thanks for the comments. Heres a few pics of my mounted wizard lord. I use the rules for pegasus for him. And here are some more of my infantry blocks, two units of 20 spearmen and 1 unit of 25 swordsmen. Also can anyone give me a few tips on lighting. It doesnt seem to matter what I do all my pictures seem so dark. Thanks! When I get a chance I post some pictures of my halfling artillery train (complete with hot pots and keg chuckers) and Knights of the Empty Pantry.

    Looking great!
    As to photos, try to take them outside on a cloudy day, that usually give you enough ambient light. You could also push the pics through Photoshop in postproduction; Image/Adjustments/Auto Levels usually do the trick.

    Holy cow, Batman! That's a big number to paint. And the rooster-wizard saved my day. It's excellent.

    As for the pics the easiest way to lighten them up is to download some free software like Picasa (for pc) that has easy ways to modify your pics. I'm not sure but there might even be a web site that can "clean up" your pics.

    You can also try to change the settings on you camera (ISO-number might be easiest to find - higher number basicly means more light but might add some noise/grain to your pics). There are also numerous articles about photographing your minis in the web.
