I suppose I say this every time, but your sets always amaze me with their detail and realism. The same can be said for your figures. The way you pose them gives them a believable sense of "mass," of actual, realistic physical presence, so they don't just look like plastic toys standing there, but like characters. Excellent outfits, too, rugged and ready for adventure. You pull everything together with great camera angles and lighting.

Thanks David Very Happy , as I have said before also, I spoke at length with Nick (MiskatonicNick) about figure photography. He was always so helpful and encouraging, always happy to pass on tips and tricks. I owe his friendship quite a lot, and I do miss him a greatly. I think a lot of my style comes from reading a lot of comics too, I love the different angles they use in the panels. The Childhood guys are how I always wanted them to look when I was a kid, but the clothes options now are so vast compared to back then Very Happy .

A love and appreciation of Marvel comics is definitely the how and the why of the VAM comics we like to produce. I'd bet your friend Nick was a comic guy too.

Great photos as always Dal
I , Like most of us can relate to reading comics and recreating story's with our men .
For me it wasn't marvel but commando and battle comics
I don't know where this fascination with war comes from but my mum said the other day when I was little I did her an Easter card at school and it had all little soldiers climbing over an egg lol!

Mr Rebox has recruited a new member, who will become his new right hand man, Mr Lynch.

I’m really really liking the look of Mr Lynch in his suit and the suit real works well for him.

The suit looks good. A complete suit with jacket and tie is not a costume we see very often on male action figures.

I trust the BAM team has all their accounts in order. Otherwise, things may not go well when they face... THE TAX MAN! affraid

Looks like the lads are gearing up for a serious mission.

Errr... they do see the snake, there, right? Either it's non-venomous and harmless, or the guys have great confidence in their body armor!

Cool bit of kit, you can't beat a bit of uniformity! Great set-up with the mesh fence etc too!

Thanks Steve! yeah I have to agree, as I said, I have been looking for something a little different from woodland and urban style camo, and I really like the desert camo. Thanks for the set up comment too, it was great fun too do bounce bounce
