New picture frame

Now that there are only three older NVA soldiers left before I start on the Crisis19 ones, I thought it would be a good idea to change my photo setup. Until now i took the pictures on my gaming table . The lighting wasn’t perfect there so I decided to make a small framework for my painting/modeling desk as light there is no problem. So I took two pieces of extruded polystyrene and glued them together with my hot glue gun.

You get something like this then. I glued sand and grid down like I would do on a piece for my gaming table and started painting it with my usual ground colors.

Then I painted the backdrop a light blue color and used a second even lighter tone of blue to simulate light clouds.

So when used correctly you get a picture like this:

Now you can use different scatter terrain pieces to change the layout as you like. Here are pictures of another NVA soldier using the plain photo frame I described above:

I think you get much better pictures like that . What do you think?

Next will be the last 3 NVA soldiers from the first badge of Vietnam war figures I purchased. After that i will start on the miniatures I bought at Crisis 19.
