I thought i'd show you how i made my 'light box';
It's very simple and rudimentary, made up of some paper or plasticard, a box, bluetack and, of course, the figures and a camera.
Put some bluetack on the box.
And stick. Easy.
And these are the photos they take. Here are the first of the militia retinue, three archers and one with a crossbow.
The right hand man obviously forgot his jacket, and the only thing that ties him with the group is the red diamond on his jacket.
Pavise stuck on. I only did a very simple design on the facing. They're only militia after all!
All finished, except bases, but they can wait.
I've also been experimenting with bigger hills in my games after a post on someone's blog and a message on the Toofatlardies yahoo group. So i placed two Perry boxes under the carpet, and the hills rose high.
