Albert’s minis

Albert used to really be into painting miniature war game figures. In our current quest to declutter our house, he is now selling them on eBay. I took some pictures of them yesterday. He really did an amazing job painting!


These minis are only like 3 inches tall. But you would never know it looking at the detail that he hand-painted these things. I usually make my vertical images smaller, but I made them large this time so you can see how detailed they are. I wish I had put a penny in so you can see the scale. Well, I guess you can see the dust on the base. Oops. I forgot to clean them. (I guess I shouldn’t have said that because if you didn’t know, you’d think the base was supposed to be like that!)



This picture turned out more blurry than I really wanted. This was because: 1) I am not too sure where my tripod is any more, 2) we had no direct light in the house to get more light on the figure and 3) I was already at 3200 ISO and noise was going to be a major issue (so I couldn’t increase ISO to make the aperture smaller, therefore making more of the flying horse in focus). So in short, I was just being a lazy photographer.

Oops again. Got into photographer lingo there. Please ignore.

The point is supposed to be that Albert is an amazing painter!

    These are amazing. I guess he definitely inherited that Chinese-miniature-painting gene (think of grains of rice and tiny glass bottles)!

    I admire Albert’s patience and care in painting these miniatures.That’s quite an accomplishment.

    That is CRAZY precision-painting … my hand cramps up just thinking about how he did that! Outstanding job on the shots too … love the focus points and the resulting blur areas … very nice!
