This is a test to see if I have solved the issues with posting images from Dropbox.

I love the old skaven models and bought them long before I considered gaming with them. I never really liked WFB (first edition) and prefer to go my own way. So I am building/modding a small army of Space Rats. The premise is that they are the ultimate scavengers/mechanics so their weapons and armour has been picked up from their dead foes. I have a Titan I haven't started on yet and am looking around for an APC. I also have a warbike in progress but no pictures yet.

The paint jobs are at various stages with no one finished yet.

So here is the first squad mostly painted.

This is the second squad. Paint job not nearly as complete.

And this is a mechanic I built to go with a tractor shed/junk yard I am working on. I still have to fix his leg. Painting is not quite finished.

Ha, I love that mechanic. That aside, the pictures are quite dark, you might want to add another indirect light source near your models, can't really see the colors well in such dark images.

EDIT: The issue might also be with the white balance settings of your camera, what do you take the pictures with?

Yes, the second pictures were taken without the "snow" setting so they come out darker. Unfortunately, the colour shifts when the 'snow' setting is used. The pictures looked better when in the preview. We will be redoing them when I finish the unit.
