I know some guys would be too modest to draw attention to something like this, and some folk (like PDH) are just going to be used to it by now, but I am quite excited to see my figures up on the big screen, and considering I’ve been worried for the past few months that they would not look particularly good I am quite pleased with the photos. And I am quite amazed that they all made the cut and that there are nine pages of Blanchitsu all about Tsengir and co. I think my first issue of White Dwarf was somewhere around 140 (let’s pretend that Warhammer Visions is the same as White Dwarf) but I never expected to get a single miniature on those hallowed pages.
I think the photography hides some of the cruder aspects of the models and shows off my favourite bits like the freehand on the Arbite’s shield, and the black background looks much better than the white I usually use. I don’t think the macro-servitor looks great in closeups, although the OSL looks quite nice against the black and I bet that’s the first time an Epic scale Warlord Titan chainfist has been featured in a GW publication for a while. I do feel like the macro servitor in particular could use a bit of a revamp in places, and probably Tsengir himself a bit too, particularly the skin. I think my painting ability has improved quite a bit since I did those models. And the servitor imp got a whole page to himself – I converted and painted him in a couple of hours but I quite like the little guy now.
