It has been a while seen I posted last time. After I finished my Grey Knight army I was enqurage to make a tutorial for my bases.

One month ago we played a local tornument, finished in the midle of the feild with my GK's. The ydid a good job out there. For that tournument I made two objective markers in the same way as the other bases.

So here comes my quick guide to Gothic style stone floor bases:

1. Take a base offcorse
2. Cut 1x1cm 0.5mm plasticard pices
3. Glue them onto the base

4. Work with a knife to get nice edges and and the right stone feeling, maybe add some sand also
Posted Image
5. Give it a basecoat and add some thick gloss varnish to give it more structure

6. A layer of codex grey

7. A bath in black inc
Posted Image
8. Dry brusch codex grey
Posted Image
9. Dry brusch ghostly grey
Posted Image
10. Dry brusch skull white
Posted Image
11. Add some static gras if you like

12. Also I add some gloss varnish to give them a nice finish but not shown here.

Enjoy

Very nice tutorial there with the stone bases, well done!

Been trying to find a way to get some nice stone/tile bases for my Sisters of Battle, and i have to admit, this method definitely looks like it has the best results.

Very nice bases!

When I saw the first pic... I didn't expect much, to be honest! But the final effect is very very nice!

Bought the stuff, made the plasticard squares. Going to attempt this in a snow like environment instead of grass!
