most of you have read my giant space marine article, so i just have to say that i finally went to that games workshop, and saw the space marine inside. apparently the employees called him bob. yhea. next time i go ill take a pic. basically he was blue and had some markings that looked like paw prints from a wolf , and some yellow. when i was there i made a wish list, and they even let me paint a free mini, witch is what i attached. i was shown the proper drybrushing method, and also got to use the new washes grandma gave me some money to spend, witch i bought a small pack of eldar guardians ( the small box) , the small box of space marines , the small box of chaos sm, and blood red paint. while i was there i realized that my rhino was 2x the size of the real thing, but i dont care because i dont play. the guy laughed at me when i told him i used kitchen shears to cut my models off the sprue . i also got to see a poster of the new ork battlewagon that comes out soon. i had a pretty good time hanging out at games workshop, i hope you enjoy the pics of my space marine.

there is a tuttorial on the forum , but what i do is get a well lit room ( i was in my kitchen with boxed lighting) . if i use flash the model will reflect the light , so i use no flash. i also select macro mode, then press the button to take the pic half way so macro mode can focus , then press down all the way and your pic is taken.

Awesome Photos! They are clear and not blurry and perfectly focused. Teach everyone else on this site (including me) how to take good pictures.
