Not very tall chaos warband

The villages along the edges of the chaos wastes have been cursed by many a threat, but none as confusing as the predations of the "Not very tall warband" . (get the impression I can't come up with a decent name?). A spate of cunningly perpetrated burglaries and murders using access and methods no normal man or beastman could negotiate. These are the work of the "Not very tall wardband".

So my completed , for the moment, warband led by a height, or rather lack of it, obsessed chaos sorcerer is shown below. The concept is that some animals have been corrupted by chaos to take human form rather than the beastman where the opposite happens. This gives them some of the abilities of their animal form but human intelligence. I'll probably expand them at some point, I've got a potential terrier sized chaos hound figure, perhaps something like a troll or ogre equivalent - what would that be, all suggestions welcome?

Thanks for the feedback

Pygmy - They are mainly Bob Olley's Druids Children now in Splintered Lights woodland warriors range.

Zhu - I try to take my photos in natural light as I tend to get too many shadows with a lighting set up. I'll see about checking out some tutorials to improve.

Re: Not very tall chaos warband

The problem is not with the lighting as such it is how your camera determines the exposure. Because there is a lot of white in the pictures for the background the camera registers the scene as being very bright so reduces the exposure on the shutter to compensate for it thus making the miniatures darker (you can see the white comes out kind of grey) Your camera should have some mechanism for over exposing a picture (eg AV+). Experiment with jacking that up a few steps.

If it can't do that use a grey card for the background or get up some kind of backdrop. This will be less clean looking but give your camera a better reference for the exposure.
