Here is the next , more feral , Grot :
Hope you like him. I think I have a better depth of field now.
I got myself a new camera, the Sony Alpha 7.
I know that you can get a newer model but this one was quite cheap for the value you get. I took the first pictures with it yesterday, using a spacer ring for macro pictures. Here are the pictures of “Squigloover” my gretchin herder:
The pictures were taken without a flash and only with the normal lighting of my hobby room no lightbox or additional lighting was necessary. The lens I used was a 50mm fixed focal lens by Sony and a macro spacer ring. I think the pictures are quite nice, at least much better the the ones taken with my iPhone ( all the other pictures on this blog). What do you think?
I finished building the stage yesterday. Here are pictures of the changes and additions I did:
I added a sign on top of the speakers. This will display the name of the band in ork glyphs then I added cabling for the speakers , the guitars and the microphone of the singer.
Here you see the cabling on the singer figure.
Then I added bolts, rivets and nuts to the stage:
And thats what the stage with band looks like at the moment:
I will post pictures of the base coated model in a few days. Then there will be a hiatus as we are not supposed to show pictures of the painted models before the contest is finished.
Now, after finishing the Leman Russ, the building of the ork parts of the rolling stage starts. Here are pictures of the beginning of the stage:
The mast will carry the sound system eventually, or at least part of it. as you can see there are 4 spaces for the members of the Band left free. Here are pictures of a test fit of the original miniatures the singer ( Eardrumsplitta) , guitarist and the Bass man. The drummer has to be done from scratch.
Here is a picture of the beginning of the drummer:
And the beginning of the sound system:
Complete with equalizer. Next will be the fitting of the sound system and the proper build of the drummer
I made a little video which shows the tank in all its splendor :
