After the recent poll on whether to use a flash when photographing miniatures returned a fairly mixed response I have decided to return to photo taking without the flash. Most people said they would use it on occasion when necessary, but those who voted no, outweighed those that said yes. I am happy with the advice.
Below are some recent paints of what I am dubbing, Noble Indostani Cavalry. They are actually Foundry Mounted Sikh Nobles, but are close enough. They were actually pretty good to paint and with a good part of them being chain, relatively easy. They do require a bit of planning with their coloring, but should allow me to go even more garish in the future. The rightmost guy has parts of his plate painted green, which makes for a nice change to the all metal look. I have about 20 or so more of these guys to do, half of whom have lances. They are painted with Army Painter and the pics were taken without a flash. (Click the images to enlarge)
