About this deal

I can already tell that the Neatfi light will last me years and years from its mostly metal construction. The LEDs are rated for up to 100,000 hours of use, and will never get hot. The 3-yr warranty is a nice touch but I doubt will be needed.

Lamp for miniature painting: Neatfi XL - Miniatures of Death Lamp for miniature painting: Neatfi XL - Miniatures of Death

When painting miniatures with poor light, it will distort the colours of your miniatures. This is because it either casts a too-blue light or too-yellow tone from the bulb, giving everything a tinge of that colour. It will also have a bad CRI, meaning that it will not accurately reflect the actual colours and tones of the paint you are working with.Let us look a bit at what a good lamp for painting minis actually needs to do. 1. The colour of the white light needs to show the actual colours of the model (it should throw a white light in the Kelvin 5000 range with good CRI) Although all architect lamps are more flexible than standard lamps, some feature more swivel than others. Look for one with a wide range on the head, as well as adjustability in the arm. The lighting itself is important. Look for the number of lumens the lamp emits to see how much lighting you’ll get. The flexible swing-arm of the Neatfi lamp help keep the light stay over (or under) where I need it. Sometimes you may need to tilt the light to see the underside of a model. The lamp can do that and stay positioned while you work. The metal arm and wide shade combine to spread that diffuse light over a wide area. The most notable feature of an architect lamp is its adjustability. It has both a head and arm that swivels, letting you control not only the height but also the direction of the light. They have a lampshade that helps control the direction of the light, and the shade can vary in size. With some architect lamps, the shade is wider, while others keep it more in a circular design.

Neatfi Elite HD XL Task Lamp with Clamp, UK Plug, 1600 Lumens

The best light for painting miniatures will be light in the color range of about 5000. This produces a good natural white light that will reflect how the miniature will look in normal daylight. A CRI of 80 is normal, but not really that great. You need to get up in the 95+ range for this to be fun. 2. The light needs to decrease the amount of shadow on your miniatureAs useful as it may be to be able to adjust your lamp, if it continues to move around after you’ve positioned it, it will become a huge distraction. Your lamp should have the flexibility to be movable while also holding its position once you’ve put it in place.
