Wargaming Backdrops




Digitally printed backdrops to enhance your displays and game playing



What is a backdrop?

In order to create an atmosphere which is as authentic and engaging as possible, Battleboards came up with the idea of terrain backdrops. These digitally printed backdrops are placed against the back or sides of your terrain to create an artificial background. This allows for increased three-dimensionality of the terrain, and is perfect for photographing miniatures and wargames in action, removing all the unsightly distractions from your images.



The backdrops are specifically designed for miniature wargaming with a low horizon so miniatures feel and look like they are within the location of the battle. Each backdrop has been digitally mastered to a very high level of detail. The images are created using real photos and techniques normally incorporated for main stream movie scenes or digital matt paintings.

The backdrops come in a choice of materials, which can be used in different formats:

  • Heavy PVC (0.5mm) very flexible materials which allows you to easily roll it up and store it as necessary.
  • Foamex plastic: a sturdier, semi-rigid material that allows for some flexibility whilst being more robust.

How do you use a Battleboards backdrop? 

You can use a backdrops in many different ways. You can easily trim a PVC or Foamex backdrop to fit into a cabernet or display shelf. The backdrops are also designed to be fitted against a wall. Pin the backdrop to a wall with blue tack, masking tape or drawing pins and it can provide a great backdrop to any game.




Once the backdrop is in place you can take photographs of the terrain that provide a professional look and finish. This can save hours of work minimising unsightly or unwanted details that later need removing. Below are examples of what can be achieved using one of our backdrops.
