Thanks GF! It's where I shot all the other Wraith bar a couple due to winter which is why they were in the photobooth etc.. but now the weather is better for figures outside, no for me as I like the cool climate and rain! I'm a miserable bastard!
You are welcome! Well, the location works very well for this sort of thing, even though it is hard to imagine this guy frolicking in the summertime sun. It does give it a sort of timeless archaic look. And I thought your were attracted to Wales because of its heatwaves and droughts!
Actually if you wanted cold and rainy, I've heard that there are other parts of Great Britain that are more known for that... but I will not name them out of politeness.
Well people won't even talk to you in most of those places, the Welsh are pretty open and friendly on the whole, being Irish here helps a lot, there's a very long running three way bond between three of the four countries making up the British Isles against the fourth country...see if you can guess which ones! LOL.
I came to see the new pics as soon as I got the notification, and boy, what a substantial difference that made. They're super crisp and clear I could see all the texture and the weathering on the armor pieces and the weapons. Seeing them more clearly, I can really appreciate the emblems/etchings on the on the shoulders, abdomen section, forearm guards, and around the knees more. This is such a beautiful piece, and it was such a pleasure to enjoy it in HD.
Thanks again for suggesting the idea of bigger pics!

Believe it or not, that's my Sony Xperia M5 phone's camera using the 'Open Camera' app without a tripod and me shaking and wobbling all over the place! It has 21.16MP at 5312x3008 in 4:3 and 16.07MP in 167:94!.

Thank you so much RS!

Curiosity question, who is the other armored guy...? I wanna see him tooooo
LOL, cheers blackpool! The other figure will be posted in a new thread, possibly today, I didn't want to flood the board with my threads all at once.

Thank you dadrab! A Southern Gentleman lost for words? That's a first! You guys usually can turn a simple boring word into a wonderful phrase or sentence! One of the many reasons I've always loved the South, that along with bikes, guns and incredible beards! I lived around Daytona for a few years as a Harley mechanic and all my friends were bikers, rednecks and basically nuts!
It's hard to believe that, until completed, he existed completely in your head! I have this stuff in my head, I just can't get it out of there, it gets lost inbetween my head and my hands.
Thanks Roger! Get an X-ray, you might find it all somewhere!
