But first, an interlude on macro-photography: Macro photography is extremely time consuming and, at times, difficult. There are very good reasons why many people just can't be bothered. In the far future once I've figured out my lighting situation (note to self: buy/construct light box), then I'll probably do more of it. But for today's show and tell, I went with good old fashioned regular flash photography and let Picassa sort it out.

The initial army list can be found here. Having done some playtesting I know that a third unit of Fire Dragons is in order and due to the re-release of the Fire Prism and my own interests, some Falcons will show up as well.
As far as the actual painting goes, its a bit weird for me. I went well out of my way to keep the paint scheme simple and easy to replicate. The goal was to get an army painted in a shorter amount of time (relatively speaking). Lots of line highlighting, no advanced techniques and a more cartooney vibe to the whole thing. Its been an interesting ride so far. Initially I was worried that the whole thing wouldn't be as rewarding as the various 'masterpeices" I chase after. The thrill of the challenge and all that. But now that I'm 3 vipers and 3 prisms away from being done, a nearly complete army has become totally worth the compromises.
Anywho, comment away. We all know that I love answering questions about my projects
