I usually have multiple projects on the go... Ill post what im working on here.

Today i decided to make some hired swords for my chaos dwarf warband. Im using battle for skull pass night gobbos as informers/hobgoblins so i thought i'd continue this with the hired swords.

From the left "Seenit" my 'Goblin Lantern Bearer'. "Wantzit" my 'Begger" ( with a crutch (club) and human skull begging bowl) and "Nikdit" my 'thief'

Sorry about the photo but our camera is crap... time to upgrade me thinks

Nice conversions Smile Simple, yet effective.

And to be honest, there's no need to update the camera, it looks like that pics got the problem with the depth of field - The autofocus looks to have picked up on the sculpting tool in the background more than the models.

What I've found helps is to have a plan sheet of card/paper under & behind the minis so that when your frame the figures, the only hing in the picture is the sheet, and the miniatures - That kind of forces the autofocus to pick the miniatures to focus on, rather than miscellaneous background objects.

As a Goblin Guy myself, I'd say your starting group looks EXCELLENT...nice modifications & cool names. NICE START! What a Face

As ghostbear said, the camera looks fine; it's just not focused on the Goblins...lovely snap shot of the sculpting tool GF9?). The background sheet would help; and if you raise the minis to the level of the camera, focusing on the actual subject would be easier. clown

where are the engines walls from? is it the necromunda pack? It looks like a good start, archaic and mechanical suits the black dwarfs fine
Fun looking bunch of hired swords. Is there anything goblins can't do?

The Engine is impressively large...the barbed wire is a nice touch. It's one of those projects that leave the final appearance to the viewer's imagination...with moi this can be dangerous. I'm looking forward to the progress photos with bated breath...keep up the GOOD WORK! thumbsup
