Hi all, just returned home from the UK. I took a shit tonne of photo's so I've decided to break them down into a few posts. Prepare yourself for the laziest series of blog posts ever.....photo dump time :)
|Stick with miniatures guys, |
tank production ain't your thing.
I then made a B-line for the museum. Here's what I saw:
Next up was John Blanches' iconic diorama. I took quite a few pics of this, mainly trying to concentrate on areas that you don't get to see. Looking for modelling cheats, corners cut and hidden minis.
|This guys was sporting a lance.|
|The paint was pealing off of this guys horn.....the one on his helmet :P|
|Wrong mini version :(|
|Even their old copy of RT was falling apart ;)|
|No were as good as the illustration I'm afraid.|
Ok, so overall I think the museum is worth a visit. But be warned though, most of the stuff is fairly new. What you see here, taken with my crappy phone camera, comprises the entirety of the "Old" stuff. The lighting is pretty woeful for photography too, I overheard another guy wandering around the exhibits commenting on the quality of "real estate lighting". There are a lot of reflections and different light sources that conspire to ruin your photos. You may have observed that most of my shots were taken from above, that was to try to avoid the reflections. But it's not too dear, and there is enough to take you zooming back to your youth....whichever time period in GW history that may be. So weighing up the pros & cons, I'd still go again knowing what I know now.
First day complete. Next up Shadow Wars at Warhammer World :)
