I just need to take some good group shots of my finished 9 orc warband, which may have to wait until the weekend as it's so dark so early.. :cry:

In light of this I'm holding entries for the prize draw open until I'm done, it woudl be unfair to kepp those runnign afew days late out when I can't even finish myself.

I'll make another summary of the various entries inthe past week and a half in due course. Now to decide what I have too much of and can safely give away.


Sorry Erny, but the rules clearly stipulate that the cut off date for submissions was at the end of the month. Better luck next year buddy :lol:

Oh OK Optimus I guess your right. So as I didn't get finnished and Optimus says I can't extend the dead line I'll have to withdraw my side of the bargin, namely giving away some miniatures.

You can all blame Optimus... :D


Nah I can't do that to you, particularly as I spent last night rooting through my garage, this year I'm going to give the winner a choice of prize too.

I'd also like to donate my Orky underwear to the winner...

What makes them Orky you say? Well they haven't been washed since the RT days and I'm pretty sure fungus is growing on them.. plus there red speedos :)

Here's a simple trick to help with your photography Golgfag. Don't use the cameras flash....ever :) It kills all colour and makes a whole lot of unsightly reflections. Also, don't take photos under fluorescent or incandescent lighting either.

Just use natural light if you can, but not blindingly bright. If you can't take pic's in the daytime because of it not being a free commodity :roll: then use a "daylight globe" in your lamp instead, or use a LED lamp.

Oh, and remember, whichever daylight method you use make sure that your camera is switched to daylight mode in the "white balance settings".

I think if you try it out you'll be pleasantly surprised with the results :D

Not the best time of year to attempt this but I'll give it a try at the weekend, thanks for the advice.

Here are all the Orcs I painted for Orctober, they actually make up a warband which I rolled up using Erny's generator. At some point I'll game with them against a Realm of Chaos warband:

I'm too lazy to check to see if I've already said it, but that banner and those shields are absolutely amazing!
