First Array

So here's one of my New Year resolutions done already - to photograph my Burgundian army, as they currently are, en masse for the first time. I'd intended to do this for some time, but the holidays have given me the spare time and I've borrowed my daughter's Canon camera, as its better than mine. I also used the space provided by my wife's primary school hall, as the photo of the set-up below shows.


I'm happy with most of these - all of them have made a previous appearance on this blog over the last few years as they've been completed. I purchased a pair of value portable studio lights from Amazon which I think are essential to throw sufficient light for photos of model figures en masse - however don't look too carefully at some, as my makeshift sky is  not covering all the corners (sadly no Photoshop to tart them up). 

I'll let the pictures do the talking for now...














Toodle pip and Happy New Year!

  6. I wasn't expecting this, Mr. Chick you are really spoiling us! These are great, seeing it all come together has been a joy. I find when I array in this manner that I notice what needs to be done, I guess it's just some light cavalry in this case? Excellent post. Would be good to test these in Battle

  7. Ace! The massive size as well as all the little details, great work! Might nick the idea of the tumbling horse ;-)
    So, do you want to keep on going the Burgundian direction or will you concentrate on some of the enemies of Charles next?
