CCLXX. St. Christopher, the Cynocephalus Mummy

This boxed saint is inspired by Eastern Orthodox representations of St. Christopher with the head of a dog. 


In other news, I've upgraded my camera. The trusty Olympus 'idiot' that served me for many years is now retired and replaced by a Canon EOS 250D. I'm still getting used to the wealth of options this thing has. It's so, so, so nice to be able to take higher quality photos.

    1. Thank you! It's definitely somewhere at the top so far for me too.

  2. Super evocative miniature photography, what lens are you using? Fantastic how a better camera can highlight your painting skills.

    1. Cheers! A poor camera can hide a lot of bad things about a paintjob, but it also hides a lot of the good. It was high time to make this step.

      The lens is Canon EF-S 18-55mm f/4-5.6 IS STM. Since I'm not ready to cash out on multiple lenses just yet, I wanted the one I buy to be versatile.

    2. Thank you, good to know a standard zoom can capture miniature detail so well. Looking forward to seeing more of your work captured with the new setup.
      And another question if I may, what is the cobblestone surface underlying the current campaign's table? It has too much depth to be a printed neoprene mat. It really suits the rest of the terrain.

    3. It's a plastic gaming board I bought second hand and have no clue of the manufacturer. There is no brand on either the boards or the packaging. It consists of 2'x2' plastic modules which can be clipped together from underneath.
