Post subject:  Visual Guide to Heroics & Ros WW1/WW2

I'm putting together a sort of visual catalogue of Heroics & Ros' WW1 and WW2 stuff. It's at http://mojobob.com/wargaming/images/micros/fitzheroicsandros/fitzheroicsandros.html. I'm a big fan of H&R, but I'm continually frustrated by the inability to actually see what they've got for sale. The situation on their website is improved enormously over the old days, but there's still a huge amount missing, pictorially speaking.

Ideally I'd like to be able to have pics of the models both unpainted and painted, so that people can see what they're going to get from H&R, and what can be done with them.

It's amazingly incomplete as yet, since I've had to make a start with just the stuff I own and can photograph, but I've already had a bit of help with some Soviet stuff. The pictures are a bit of a mish-mash at the moment, but over time I'll try to rationalize them into a common size and format — that's less important to me right now than simply getting images available for viewing.

If you have any H&R models that you wouldn't mind photographing to help fill out the lists, I'd be very grateful for any help. If you're local to Christchurch, I'd be happy to come to you and photograph whatever you've got, too.

It would be very useful if you could give me the product codes along with the images, or at the least to identify the model, since I don't necessarily know enough to be able to identify every obscure vehicle at a glance to match it up to the catalogue number.

Actually I'll paint some of them in base colours tonight as the green is hard to photograph (I recently changed from France to North Africa and now regret the green).

Do you only want painted mini's or is something in a simple base coat okay for the time being ?

I want both unpainted/base-coated and fully finished models, so that people can see what they can expect to get without having flaws disguised by paint, and also they get to see what can be done with the models.

I took some test photos but I am reluctant to show them as my painting looks terrible. I'll just do some tidy up on them and also try not zooming in too much

Should have some photos (one a white background) for you soon, plus better image size and painting
