Some people have asked me about my miniature’s bases, I have prepared a little tutorial abut it.

We start from a plastic sheet I suppose that plasticard would be the ideal material, I use the sheet that protect packages of virgin x-rays sheets, in most hospitals they throw them to the rubbish

With a coin and cd´s marker we drew circumferences in the plastic.


Posted Image

We trimmed the circumferences with scissors

Posted Image

We used those circumferences, cutting bits and sticking them to the bases we give them volume and we created different panel effects.

Posted Image

With cut pliers we cut pins to create the sorter ones, we are going to use those sorter pins as rivets.

Posted Image

We dril the holes where rivets will be placed .

Posted Image

We place the rivets, fixing them to base back with cyanoacrylate

Posted Image

Posted Image

We created different details for the bases in this case I have used cylindrical plastic rod both to create bolter shells like cables that cross some bases, all these details are glued to base with cyanoacrylate . We use a file to scratch a little the surface of the bases to give a slightly irregular aspect to them.

Posted Image

We print bases with black spray..

Posted Image

We paint the base with a dark metalic color, gun metal bolter for example .

Posted Image

With a piece of foam and a little color bronze, dark brown and shining steel we stained the metallic surface, unloading most of painting on a paper.

Posted Image

We paint de base´s details.

Posted Image

We mix orange brown and water for applying a rush mark to each rivet.

Posted Image

Devlan mud wash to all the base. It gives uniformity and oldy look.

Posted Image

We hightlight rivet´s heads and base edge

WOW! The Royal Family posts on the B&C!!!!!

Sorry, that was the royal 'we' wasn't it? :D

Anyway, seriously though, nice work. They come out with a very grimy gothic feel, I like it a lot. Other than clipping the pins (which is a good idea) it wouldn't take to long to churn out quite a few of these I guess. :)

If at first you don't succeed, then deep-striking is not for you.

Mind if we put this in the Librarium, Filantropolo?

EDIT: Excuse my eyesight, it's already there... :)

Really nice tutorial! Too bad many of us won't ever get the chance to play on a surface representing the looks of the bases :/
It's mostly itadel mat for me T_T
