Zanko`s Army of the Lizard King [all photos are in the first posts]

I started my thread at CDO in 2008. But it should not end with the move to the new forum, but continue in a new environment and structure.
I will rephotograph all models and units still in my possession and arrange the thread so that in the first posts you can always see all currently finished miniatures.
I hope that I will enjoy the next years as much as I enjoyed the last 12 years on the old website.

I guess this photo box thing is going to take longer… I need black textile or alternatively matt black paper. Painting is not possible, the flash reflects too much. :skull:

Jup. Black carton paper works fine for me!

Glad to hear I’m on the right track.

Oh definitely! I found this article very helpful and basically did exactly that for taking pictures, it’s easy, quick and cheap.

Here the first photo attempt with new background. I don’t know yet if I am satisfied or if I have to change something. I will let it work on me for now.

… and ths is a 2nd attempt:

What do you think , which photo is the better one?

The chariots are (so I think) all from citadel. Must be from the Orcs & Goblins range. The “Chaos Wolves” are from Gamezone MIniatures and the Chaos Dwarves models are mainly from Citadel, only slightly modified.

More photos are included in the first collective posts! Others will follow soon! :japanese_ogre:

I wanted to show you my dice box, which Titus_Paiting painted for me - he is a member from a German forum. I think the box is just brilliant!

I do not only photograph my old units and models, I also continue with handicrafts and painting. The first Dragon Rider is finished - the Chaos Dwarf is a bit bulky for the poor dragon, but nothing will be changed for the time being. Let’s see, when all 4 dragon riders are finished, how the complete unit looks like …
