Simple, Easy basing
Posted 18 March 2012 - 05:50 PM
overall it should look something along the lines of this,
oh and also, i don't use GW paints so it make look different
To start of you will need:
-Leather brown paint(or similar)
-Sand colour paint(or similar)
-Dried mixed herbs
-Mortar and pestle(optional)
Okay, let's get started
Get your base (bit obvious, but still)
Take your leather brown (or similar) and base-coat the base
It should look like this ___
Take your sand colour paint (or similar) and, with a small amount on the brush, stipple it onto the base till it looks like this
Now is a good time to add your figure if it isn't on already.
Add glue in small patches around the figure and base
Time for the secret ingredient 0_0
Take the dried herbs and crumble them up a bit so that they are finer
(or use a mortar and pestle and grind them down even further, i find this gives better effect),
then sprinkle it on to the glued parts.
Always add more than neccessery to ensure that the patches are covered
Lightly tap off exess herb and Voila! your Simple, yet nice smelling, base is done
Here are some other models with the same base style
Other model 1
Other model 2
before any complaints come in about quality of pictures, i just want to say that i had to do this with my i-pod because my camera is out of battery
Anyway, hope this helps

I have recently noticed just how bad the pictures are on, this. I Knew they were bad before, but not by how much!
Here are some better final pics for you
The models aren't the best in the world, but this is for bases...

having not tried that myself due to lack of patience, i wouldn't know, however it sounds like a good idea
