As far as I remember, that is an adventurer from the Warhammer Quest board game, a pirate or thief... or a young noble.

@ Doc J: Thank you. Yes, these are the bearmen. Unfortunately, I am still looking for Beorg and his musician, but I have the standard bearer and some more barbarians in store.

@ Steveb: Ouch... how come? I upload my pics via photobucket, as it was once recommended when I decided to join warhammer-empire.com. Sorry, but I have no answer to that. Maybe times have changed and so have ways of uploading pics. Maybe it's firefox, maybe it's tough luck, maybe it's even Nuffle...

Some more Sigmarines. This time: Retributors

I love the background/back-drops for your Estalians, are you using a calendar of scenic places? and how did you solve the glare problem if you had it.  good paint jobs on everything.  steveb

Love your minis and how you photograph them. Going back to the Bearmen, I've got a spare musician and Beorn.

Thx for your comments again.

@Steveb: Those backgrounds are taken from the internet and simply printed out on photopaper. There glare problem is indeed there as one can see in the lower left hand corner of the jungle Estalian picture. I am not much of a photographer, so most of the time I keep on experimenting with lighting and changing the angle of the camera until I am satisfied with the result. Cheers to digital photography.

@Shadespyre: I have recently purchased a musician. Beorg sounds interesting. What is your location? Maybe we can work something out.

Wonderful to see so many Mordheim warbands  :::cheers:::

Excellent work,  I really enjoy the use of the backgrounds to present the miniatures.

Hauptmann, thanks for answering, I must try that soon, I was also thinking of using indirect lighting like through a semi-transparent paper, or a reflection screen, but your way sounds easier, and definitely looks good.  steveb
