Third picture seems good to use, but for the others I am not sure... (maybe the dragon, depending on how its zoomed face will render on the card).


Self-made pictures are really good for higher quality, but you might want to take a lot of care of some points to avoid having something worse compared to a googled picture.


=> choose wisely the shooting angle. Just imagine what you see on the photo inserted in an army card. For instance, photos #1 & #2 give a bad viewing angle of the figure.
=> Beware of the shadows ! You have to take the photos in a well enlightened environment, and essentially on the face of the figure you are photographing. Photo #4 looses a lot of details (and might look weird on the card) due to the shades.
=> Pay attention to the focus : you might want (or not) some parts of the figure blurry. Most of the time it's better if the whole figure is sharp (opposite of blurry = sharp, right ?). Identically, you might want (or not) to ignore some parts of the figure because you know they won't be seen in the army card (the foot for instance). But here too it's most of the time better to take care of having the whole figure in the photo, as you'll still be able to cut the useless parts during post-edition.


Bunch of useful resources (army cards,
blanks, online databases & more..!)
