Great idea for the neutral cloth to photograph them - quite envious of the kor'vattra haha.
The scary thing is that if it hadn't been for the demise of the Specialist Games in 2013 it would have been even larger...
The general system I've used for model photographs is white for most things and black for Battlefleet Gothic. The idea is that the black flying stands will blend in with a black backdrop to enhance the illusion that the ships are in flight. I also managed to get some very good visual effects entirely by accident when I discovered that putting the light at a certain distance and angle can make a black backdrop look like it's being illuminated with a red solar glow (which you can see in some of the Merchant pictures).
I use a white background for the ordinance pieces though, because my camera has a hard time focusing on them otherwise.

- Starting with both capital Ships.
- I will also be making ATT's sister "farsight" station.
- Amazing thread, and great work!
Also ordered mag 17, thanks for the tip.
One of the best kinds of comments there is - when someone says they're inspired by something I've done I know I'm doing a good job. If you're referring to the two Merchant variants I wrote about, then be sure to follow the link to my blog where you can find experimental rules for them.
I look forward to seeing what the Enclave ATT looks like...
