60mm troops recently released by BMC, formerly from the LIDO molds and back in production after decades. These are great troops and stand up even without bases.
Take pictures of Army Men by getting down low and close in to them. Make sure there is plenty of light.
Hold the camera still and give time for the auto focus to work. Take lots of photos and later you can delete the ones that don't turn out well. It's easy to crop photos and its a good way to make use of pictures that have an odd item on the edge.
Take the figures outside and post them in the dirt, on the lawn, or even on the sidewalk.
Take both group shots and individual figures. Get down very low and get in very close. Use the zoom even from a foot or two away.
It's not hard to take good photos, I manage after years of practice to take reasonable photos.
