Cygnar Warjacks (by ElDave)

From Privateer Press.com:
Possessing the most advanced magic and technology in the realm, the Kingdom of Cygnar fields a well-rounded force that battles for the good and just King Leto Raelthorne. Caught between its old enemy Khador and the newer threat of the fanatical Protectorate of Menoth, Cygnar will need every ounce of ingenuity and bravery it has to survive the coming storm.

The Ironclad and Centurion are wargaming miniatures produced by Privateer Press.

I submitted this photo to the No Quarter magazine. Hopefully it will appear in the next issue!

Plastic 52 - Week 23 (by ElDave)

Sorry everyone, but it looks like I've caught the bug that's been going around and haven't had a chance to do much blogging. I'm going to finish my tea, crawl back to bed, and pick back up on Wednesday.

Cygnaran Trenchers (by ElDave)

"It saddens me how many of those poor boys are buried out there in my kingdom, but I hate to think where we would be without their noble sacrifice."
-King Leto Raelthorne

From Warmachine: Prime
Trencher infantry fall into two categories, those who are just too hard to say quit, and those who mouthed off to someone important at the wrong time and ended up in the trenches. Trenchers, also known as "gravediggers", are the first to go to the battlefield, and often the last to leave it, if ever. It's their duty to precede even the van by a few hours, if possible, and prepare a potential battlefield for the main force. With trenches, burrow holes, and farrow spike rows, they attempt to make the conflict area favorable for their comrades.

Cygnaran Trenchers are wargaming miniatures produced by Privateer Press.

Who would have thought, in a fantasy world where wizards fight each other with giant steam-powered robots, that you would even have need of guys like this? Obviously my army thought the same way, because my Trenchers ran away at every opportunity.

As for the rain, it was fun to do, but I think there are a few things I will do differently next time. The first of which is to add a little blur to the drops, in wild defiance of the tutorial I followed!

That's how I roll.

Affix EXIF!

Nomad (by ElDave)

"Oh, it may be simple, yah, but we dogs like the Nomad. Tough, tenacious, really bears down and tears things up... heh, just like us, eh boys? Why, even the name suits our way of life!"

From Warmachine: Escalation
Before Distruption, alchemical freezing, and technological development became the deciding factor in 'jack warfare - the sword was law. In those days it was not the efficiency of an engine or the composition of the frame; it was how much wreckage a warjack could create before becoming a wreck itself. That was the era of the Nomad, but the old 'jack never did say quit, and it can still be found in service today.

The Nomad is a wargaming miniature produced by Privateer Press.

I'm not 100% happy with this one; the angle is boring and he looks too small. Looks like I'll have to go in for more reshoots.

Oh darn, I have to take more pictures.

Cave Troll (by ElDave)

I told you not to botch that Stealth Check...

Courtesy of the Monster Manual:
A Troll eats anything that moves, from grubs to humans, and is rightly feared for its ravenous appetite, feral cunning, and remarkable regenerative power.
Trolls hunt most other living creatures and are unconcerned about the size or numbers of their prey. They regenerate quickly, even after they are "slain". Their regeneration is so powerful, in fact, that trolls can regrow severed body parts. Only fire or acid can kill a troll, and trolls have a healthy fear of fire and acid for this reason.

The Cave Troll Champion is a pewter gaming miniature produced by Reaper Miniatures.

Oh great... They have an EXIF Troll:

Plastic 52 - Week 22 (4)

Plastic 52 - Week 22 (by ElDave)

This photo is my first exposure (no pun intended) to Adobe Lightroom, and... I'm still not sure about it. I can see how it would be useful, especially in a studio setting or when you are shooting a portrait setting and need to apply the same post processing to several pictures. As for one off shots like this? I'm not so sure I need it. There's nothing there I can't accomplish in Photoshop, and, to be honest, I like having the extra controls that Photoshop provides.

I don't know, maybe I'll have to play with it more. Although look how much more EXIF data it spits out! Wall of Text, ahoy!

Gears of War 1

5:28 AM by , under , ,

Gears of War (by ElDave)

Courtesy of Wikipedia:
Gears of War is a third-person shooter video game, developed by Epic Games and published by Microsoft Game Studios. It was initially released as an exclusive title for the Xbox 360 in November 2006 in North America, Australia, and most of Europe, and included a "Limited Collector's Edition" with added content and an art book titled Destroyed Beauty that detailed much of the game's back-story. Despite the initial statements of Xbox 360 exclusivity, a Microsoft Windows version of the game was developed in conjunction with People Can Fly and released a year later, featuring new content including additional campaign levels and a new multiplayer game mode; a Mac OS X version has also confirmed to be in development.

The game centers on the soldiers of Delta Squad as they fight to save the human inhabitants of the fictional planet Sera from a relentless subterranean enemy known as the Locust Horde. The player assumes the role of Marcus Fenix, a former prisoner and war-hardened soldier. The game is based on the use of cover and strategic fire for the player to advance through the scenarios; a second player can play cooperatively through the main campaign to assist. The game also features several online multiplayer game modes for up to eight players.

The Gears of War toys are produced by NECA.

I don't know if you can tell in the picture, but the water he is wading through is iced over. I had to break a hole so he could stand!

All I did in Photoshop was tweak the colors a little bit and paint all the little lights. Pretty straightforward and easy to do!
