Decided it was time to take a few photos of old 40k stuff. I think the last 40k miniatures i bought were a box of Kroot in 2001 so most of these will probably be older.

Warfare on a desert planet
My setting is Torq XLII, a desert mining world where many squats fled to after their homeworlds were invaded by tyranids. Around the same time a badly damaged eldar craftworld carried out a "controlled" crash landing on the planet stranding the survivors. Although the eldar and squats often trade peacefully with each other, the arrogance of the eldar and the squats pride and their ability to hold a grudge often leads to conflict.
Also on the planet is a small Kroot colony and a few imperial guard units such as the Ratlings in the first photos here below.

These photos are my first attempts to work with Photoshop (Photoshop Elements 11). Up to now i have only edited size and lighting on my photos with Photoscape, a free internet software download. My other photos are on a couple of threads on the fantasy board or here - http://steamflunky.deviantart.com/gallery/

Love stuff like this.  I wish Lead Adventure would put together a yearly album of the best paintjobs and best photos like this and sell it...what a great coffee table book it would make.

Thanks all.
Nice weather at last here in NW germany today so i will try to take a few photos outside where i can get some REAL fire and smoke into the pics. No idea if that will make the photos better but i remember as a kid how much fun it was to burn and blow up old model tanks and buildings Cheesy and i dont think i have changed much.
If i know me, i will probably have no eyebrows left by this evening  Laugh
