|This, I think, really shows off the camo scheme quite well.|
Goodies indeed this Xmas. Not only did I get some North American Combine
miniatures and Charley's War Volume IX, both of which I knew I was
getting, I also got a surprise prezzie. I like surprises, and this one
came in the shape of an Olympus F2.8 60mm Micro 4/3rds macro lens. I
had forgotten how much better fixed focal length prime lenses are than
zooms, no matter how good the latter might be.
Here are some examples done on the fly to test out the new lens.
|Super extreme close-up and one can really see the shading and blending, and dust, doh!|
And here is the Blood Sucker on my urban terrain board, looking good, and hopefully giving a good indication of the size of this model.
The Strikedog shape is nicely broken up against the buildings.

Just got to work out what weekends I'm free in January and then I will be able to arrange for my first game of Heavy Gear Blitz.
