Ruins as a photographic backdrop

I was thinking about just using a pre-printed piece of paper as the background behind the windows so I can swap it out depending on which Mini I'm taking pics of.

Thoughts?

Sorry for the delayed response. It was a poor backdrop and difficult to store. I broke my #1 rule of terrain making: Design it to be stored when not in use. 

I'd use  a solid wall, no top exposed edge or trees behind it. Windows were a bad idea. The color should be more of warm medium gray or probably better yet, sand stone. The images I took of miniatures were simply not improved by using  the backdrop.

So, sadly, I harvested the tree for the next project and trashed it.

The "Daylight" bulb I normally use is a little blue, at least in the camera. I switched to secondary source and fiddled with a lot of settings on the camera, but I'll probably just go back to Picture mode.

I added the brick lines suggested by Pendrake. A good catch. I'd already base-coated it a bit, so maybe I'll need to add emphasis with paint.

That came out very well in deed
