Hmm, looks like me, Rich and Monty have a competitor on our hands.

Welcome to the forums and as always, the best way to introduce yourself is to post pictures, just like you've done. :thumbup:

I really like the Challenger and the Warrior. I think I'd probably like the figures too, what I can see looks good as well, it's just a pity the shots are blurred.

Looking forward to seeing more pictures of these, that is for sure.

Hi Grimlokk,
Nice way to introduce yourself.
And an extra modern-army man!

@Suso: Your Swedish is good to read.
@Remco: See enough other languages is topics, so (when this is only once) don't be too harsh.

Wow! What a welcome! Thank you all very much!

As I said, this is the first time I post stuff in any forum.
But more importent: It's my first go at taking pictures of my minis!, but I'll hope you bare with me untill I have figured it out!

I'm going to take some more pics of the figures now, so hopefully they will turn out better!

Grimlokk out!!

Use 2 sources of light if you use artificial light, one from above and one from the front. And you can always use a photo editor to fix the pictures a little, make them brighter, more focus, enhance the colors if they are flat, etc.
