A +10 macro filter is a little of an overkill. DOF will be extremely shallow too. A +4 or +2 will probably be more suitable.
Basic setup will be digicam mounted on a tripod. User timer/remote to trigger the shutter. Settings wise, stop down your aperture to at least f8 to achieve more DOF.

A +4 should be quite capable of achieving good magnification. What cam u using? And how small are your subjects?

The smallest subjects are, for example; figures from 25mm to 52mm in height. Close up shots are mainly of heads/torsos, for the smallest figures that would be about 4mm/10mm.
Since all are done indoors, getting enuff light has been a real pain .....

I am not sure about this ... but for those using Macro filter, do you still set the camera to Macro mode?
