Hi Guys

 

I have only just discovered these wonderful figures and managed to get hold of my first three from series 2. I am in the UK where these are near impossible to buy. I have ordered some more via amazon so hope to paint them up and let you see the results.

Many thanks.

Using a Canon G12, placing the figures against a white backdrop, shoot the pictures using natural light, f8 aperture on a tripod. Then tint the background with a grey to white fade in photoshop.

Nice. Are the three figures shot together in the same photograph or is the image a composite made in PS?

All figures placed in position and shot together, makes a quicker job of it.

Thanks Deano, I have many hundreds of Painted miniatures but have only recently discovered these types. I will soon be painting up some more slugs, and would love to get hold of some of the OMFG figs, however as you may know they're not easy to obtain here in the UK.
