Ok I've been a horrible army painter, always getting sidetracked and never doing what I should be.
This is my first diorama, which came about when I found that I had one extra Marine that I didn't need......and some random Eldar stuff from a bits bag I bought. Together with a new camera and new problems (yellowing! #@$^#) they combine to form Voltron! defender of......I mean Sgt. Enthos Fin- Xeno hunter
The story is an Eldar Warrior (suppose Dark Eldar) gets the jump on Sgt. Fin, only to find that he's made of tougher stuff then the Xeno vermin could handle. After discarding his ruined helmet, Fin defeats the Eldar in single combat and holds the beaten warrior over the cliff to make sure he understands his fate.
tell me what you think and i'll try to figure out how to fix this yellowing the camera does to me.
Lookin' good. I especially like the Sergeant's face and the armour highlighting.
I learned the "yellow light" lesson the hard way, but fixed it thanks to advice from other LO members here. Get a "daylight" light bulb. They are cheap, and go by various names in your local home improvement megastore, but basically any light bulb that bills itself as providing "outdoorsy" light. Really, it's just an ordinary light bulb made with a coating that offers a bluish "tint" to mimic sunlight's blue hue but with none of the damaging rays.
The yellow you see in your pictures is coming from your indoor light bulbs, which do not have this hue, made by people who believe a softer light is better to read/see by for the long term at night.
Thus, it looks yellow, especially through the dispassionate, undiscerning eye of your camera lens. Buy a "daylight" bulb and use it when you take your pictures instead. The difference is remarkable. If you can, get more than one lamp with these bulbs in it. Cuts down on shadows.
Man that sergeant is looking good... Very well done!
Is he pinned on the base or glued? And a suggestion if I may. I would like to see more towards the basing... also for the photo try to improve it through Photoshop! :yes:
Thanks to all the people showing faith in me
I sometimes feel that everyone will leave me and they will be on their own...
he's glued on the cliff with superglue. The rock itself is sculpey clay that was beaten off of real rocks to give it it's texture and then cooked for close to 2 hours to turn in brown, after a light grey drybrushing it looks like a real rock
add a blue color layer at about30-40% in pshop to get rid of the tungsten, takes 5seconds.
i really like this dio, nice work.
i think to have it really shine tho, the dar should be holding the marines hands trying to wrestle free, the eldar is a little stiff.
all in all tho, superb!
Looks pretty sweet. I do have a slight comment and if it's not true... then I guess I need my eyes checked.
The bolter barrel isn't drilled. I know it's a minor detail, but that's the first thing that caught my eye.
But besides that I do like the model and the painting, although just like turinevo pointed out, the Eldar seems a bit stiff.
yeah i noticed the Eldar was a little static after finishing the the thing and realizing i should have reposed the legs.
If that hadn't been the only model I had i would have tried cutting them...but if I messed up then the game was over.
and yes the bolter is not drilled, shame on me it was an afterthought job, it's at an odd angle to drill now but maybe a little black circle will help.
