Latest shots. Started basing the regiments. 5 companies, four 'hat'  and one grenadier. All pikes now done and deployable. By accident, this unit, Kirkes Regiment, actually represents a quarter of the number really at Sedgemoor in 1685. I have read the debates and comments re basing and understand them, but to me, this number of painted troops all deployed together looks good. Particularly when the bases will all be done. I am looking forwards to finally seeing an army gathered together although I suspect they will have a rather large frontage!!!

One of the companies has two flags: this  is the colonel with the first company.

Yep, they look great, especially the one with the basing done and better lighting.

Cheers guys. It is the difficulties of taking photos on a smart phone. Move far enough away to see all the units and the flash doesn't work so well!

Hi Urban,
Some really knowledgeable people on this form have told me that you can get pretty good results with smartphones. I have an iPhone and on occasion will get a really good shot but often can't reproduce the shot. I did buy a cheap tripod and that helps a bit (although too lazy to set it up most of the time).

There are camera also apps that will add more fine control (but you are still left with one set of optics) but not enough to get significantly better results. Lots of light seems the single most important thing.

When of figure it out - tell me how you did it! Smiley

Here is the original discussion thread which contains much good information:

Number 1 tip - don't use flash.  You will either flood the figures with light, or non will reach them.
You are much better off getting lots of real light in. A piece of white card or paper in front of the figures will help a lot with getting light on to the front of them.

I find I get great results with my iPhone 6S - much better than earlier models. All smart phones are not equal, when it comes to cameras - some are much better than others. Try taking some close up photos outside in good light - can be of anything - the bricks in an old wall are good, as they tend to have lots of detail. Take the photo, then zoom in on it to see if the photo is crisp, this will give you a good idea if your camera has any chance of taking decent photos of small things.

Latest update. Progress has been slow recently. Seventeen hours at a burnt out block of flats and two twelve hour night shifts has cramped my style a little in the last week, I am afraid! Now the second regiment is done, so here is the whole of my army such as it is. Dumbartons, four 'hat' companies and 1 grenadier company, Kirkes same, plus cavalry and dragoons. Basing far from complete. Next I will probably look at Trelawney's Regiment, or maybe the artillery. Looking forwards to the Guards Regiments - no matchlocks!

Splendid work - the large pike blocks look really effective.
