    I like what we can see of it so far, the freehand is impressive, but you've gotta up the contrast somehow. If not with a desk lamp or something during the photo session, then at least afterward digitally. I use Picasa, it's got some pretty simple fixes and it's free!

    Looking forward to more. What's the plan for the base?

    Thanks for the photo tip, probably end up buying a premade Woodland base from Microarts Studio. The stuff I'm posting in this thread is from about 15-20yrs ago but I've started digging through stuff as I moved house and am sorting through boxes in the hopes of rejuvenating them. Lots n lots more to come!

    Really nice to see some well painted Bretonians, after they, uh, disappeared.

    Really enjoying the plog nitromors, the Green Knight looks really good.

    As somebody said earlier, it would be really great if you could brighten the photos a bit.

    Nice start! Lighting is basically the most important part of taking photos. Natural light is best but the flashlight app on a phone can work in a pinch

    Okay, I give up. How'd you get the green ka-niggit to stick to the rock?

    Grit, determination, patience, brass rod and a large pile of drill bits! The rock is slate as it's easier to drill than most.

    Base has been rather damaged around the edges during transport unfortunately
