    I’ve been working on a small gaming mat (2x2ft) and backdrop. The mat was made from caulk over a painters drop cloth and covered with different shades of flock.

    The Backdrop was a bit of blue cardboard and painted with a piece of sponge and an airbrush. Its the first time I have attempted something like this so I’m very happy with how it came out as I wasn’t sure if I could create a reasonably realistic looking backdrop. If I did another one I’d probably make the hills and trees a little taller.

    You can read some more about it on my blog here

    That works quite well, you can really develop some neat shots.

    Yes I really wanted it for creating game reports and other pictures. It should be much easier editing photos using a backdrop, so I think it will save me a fair bit of time.

    Seems to me the real attraction of the micro-scales is really the terrain, anyway. That last photo proves the point!
