    Hallå Anders!

    Provade med blixt utan något särskilt bra resultat. Det här är egentligen samma bild men inte lika nerförminskad? Bättre eller sämre?

    Haha Steve!

    Janne,

    Jo det ar ju battre, man kan se skillnaden mellan skagget och skinnet. Fotot ar fortfarande ganska sa morkt. Kanske ta ett par bords lampor och satt en pa var sida trekarts fran fram sidan och satt dom nara figuren sa den blir 'floodad'? Det ar ju mest att prova sig fram och se vad som fungerar.

    Janne ,
    Looks very good although the pics could be clearer to let us all see more of the work you have done , I like the base work especially the shield and axes ..nice idea , my only thought would be to lower it slightly so as not to interfere with the great basework .

    Anders ...you took the words right out of my mouth !!!!!!

    Janne,
    What i can see from the Dark picture's is that you have done some amazing painting and basework.
    Probaly you can take some more closeups and lighter pictures.

    Great composition. It's always a challenge to tel a 'story' with a single figure. You've nailed it well done.

    Nice figure Janne, could you post some close-ups to show more details? The setting is perfect, I like the chest (is that commercial?) and the dark stones, the whole display looks very good!

    Thanks

    Thanks for all the nice comments, Figureteers!

    Lesson learned. Post bigger and brighter pictures. :eek:

    Nap:
    The sign comes with the kit. And I agree that it would be better not blocking the scene but I was somehow limited to the bases I had at home so it is kind of a compromize.

    Stefano:
    Let me know if you are in the Stockholm region. Im not much for a fisherman myself but I can buy you a beer and show some interesting sights if your interested in vikings.

    Derek:
    Thanks, I always try to think what the subject is coming from and where he is at the moment portrayed. This one I pictured as a Hirdman in service of some russian nobleman going through the loot in a fortification after the battle.

    Tommi:
    Im looking forward to see your rendition of this figure.

    Denes:
    Everything comes with the figure except the ground and the wall. I will try to get some bigger pictures up in a short while.

    Cheers

    Ok, Janne when I am in Stockholm I let you know .. I am very interested in viking and in that period.. i have a degree in History with a thesis historic-archaeological on Lombards ( Lombards have a lot similarity with vikings , they anciently came from Sweden and when they invaded and established in northern Italy they were still pagans , they also had the odin warriors bersekers as the vikings..). I often think when i am in Sweden to take a look to the Uppsala graves sites of the Vendel period..so if you show me some interesting sites i will be very glad... and thank you also for the beer:D:D

    cheers Stefano
