Many years ago I bought some of West End Game's 25mm Star Wars miniatures, from their Star Wars Miniatures Battles game. When I did, I painted up the Emperor and his Royal Guards first. It was my first real experiment with painting highlights and with inking (the red on the Royal Guards). The basing style is vintage 1990s Goblin Green with yellow/white highlights. I based the figures on coins - nickles in the case of the miniatures below.
These models provided a good opportunity to test out different camera options and lighting, and below are photos using three different lighting methods for the same basic picture angle and composition.
