Hey folks! I have a set of this particular Reaper miniature coming to use as the figure for the Sky/Earth Non Metallic Metal video. I am using some Urban Mammoth figures for the Golds, brass and Bronze video.
I did this one years ago, and it was always one of my favorites for SE-NMM. It had the most open, unhindered surfaces, with several different types of angles. The sword is just perfect for what I need to do, and there were many other good spots for that 'horizon line'.
All these factors were way more important than they were for the standard NMM video, where reflections are not the issue. I will also be scanning some images from my Medieval Armor book that has actual photographs of actual humans wearing actual shiny armor in actual scenes. :-) These will be shown in the video (with credits to the author & publisher, etc.) as reference material.
Speaking of Reaper minis, there should be a big box of those arriving either tomorrow or Friday! It was at least 10-12 videos worth of minis.
