New Foot and Horse - start to muster

Currently I'm painting the Parliamentarian command group.

For the next regiment of horse I wanted something a little different; I decided to convert some Irregular Miniatures figs using Sash & Sabre heads (which can be bought separately); I wanted them to have swords in various poses; so these have been added by using the swords from Prince August cast figures. So far I have only finished two ...

The officers for the next foot regiment are ready for painting; the officers with spontoon and the ensign are converted pikemen [for these I used Sash & Sabre heads on Irregular Miniatures bodies].

Looks like things are progressing nicely over here in Tidders-land. What type of camera are you using to take photos? I'm looking around for one and for me the prime reason for getting it is to take pictures of figures. Your shots are nice and clear.

I use a Canon Powershot A710IS. The main reason I chose it was that it was a decent size for my big hands and chunky fingers to use, not like some of the 'matchbox' size ones on the market; it also has a fitting to put it on a tripod.

I sometimes have problems with the autofocus, but it's usually me moving slightly when holding the camera. I should use a tripod which I've got but I'm too lazy to set it up.

Hope you find a camera that suits you
