Along with the recent FoW Wehrmacht figures I have also been steadily working through the various characters for Empire of the Dead.
I have managed to get three done so far, The Reaper Deathlight, The Gallows Hag, and Cedric Hyde, as pictured below.
These are quite large figures and are shown mounted on 40mm bases.
I have tried photographing them in two styles; my regular approach; a slightly pitched down angle over green felt base cloth, and against a curved paper background, from a more direct angle. Interesting how the different effects come out. Note lighting was identical (fluorescent strip lights).
With the bigger bases I was able to play about with more basing materials than I usually do.
The Reaper Deathlight was quite tricky to get the best angle for the pose, so I ended up doing three shots, just so you can see the pose of the figure to best effect.
A group shot with a 28mm Prussian, just to give you an idea of scale of these larger character models.
The alternate photography style:
Cedric Hyde, offspring of Mr Hyde and a lady of the night...
Gallows Hag, a spooky spirit who will ensnare you in her rope.
Reaper Deathlight, coming to claim your mortal soul!
I enjoyed a couple of games of EotD over the weekend with good mate Roly. My poor vampire faction fared poorly and against the Gentlemen, rolled daylight in both games; first a simple Fracas, the second a search for the Artifact. Both great fun games played over a rural village setting, thanks to my selection of medieval style thatched and tilled roofed buildings. I'll try and take some in game pictures next time.
