Crude But Effective?

During a break from painting the other day I thought that I would use the time productively, so I knocked up this "photo box". It is half of an old shoebox, some white card, a piece of grass matting, paints, kitchen foil and a piece of obligatory quack tape.

A desk light over the top and one at the front eliminates the shadows, below are some pics of figures from a current commission taken using it.
Front Rank Figurines Late 17th century Danish Guard Grenadiers and the colonel.


Next weeks game will be over at GHQ, a game set in Blandings after the German invasion of Britain I believe. Then Thursday it is off up to Scotland for a few days taking in Carronade, hurrah!
