Default Basing

DaisyDuke: Thank you. I appreciate the feedback!

Basing. My most favourite part because I can unleash my imagination onto the base and don't have to be so precise about it.
So white parts are from Hirst Arts moulds.
Because road blocks are higher I needed to even up the terrain for which I used rest of the milliput but it wasn't enough so I used my almost endless reserve of kneadatite.
It might look ugly now but I think it will be nice when finished.



As basing material I will be using black tea (Earl Grey) It is simple and yet so fantastic! And some static grass.

A good alternative is filler from your local diy shop. Get the mix yourself stuff, you can then control how stiff the mix is. And it will give you some texture. Hope it helps.

Yes, I know about cheaper/better alternatives. I was just lazy to go and buy something..

But tea as a basing material works! I used glaze (mixture of glue/water 50/50) to harden it and it is quite paintable, now.

Default Mannfred is coming! Mannfred is coming!

Where Empire people must be terrified by these news I am very much anticipating his return! Unfortunately, I am still waiting for old model to come (need it for conversion) and there is possibility I won't make it for the game release.

I have already whole conversion planned in my mind. What is left to decide is head. I wanted to go with "mortarch" head but since I will have 3 of them I am still thinking what is the closest to the game.

From cinematic trailer "mortarch" head would be more fitting but in-game Mannfred is more like vampire lord head from zombie dragon. What do you think ? Should I go artwork style or rather game style ?



Also I finished the dragon and it is awesome! But I won't show you until Mannfred is sitting atop him

Base is primed and ready for paint. I will get some Bretonnian knights today so hopefully there will be some spare lances, swords or shields for base.



And got the basing kit for grass and tufts

Default Base

What do you think guys. It's my first time using static grass and tufts.

I don't have any bodies, skeletons or extra weapons to put on base so I will leave it like that. Abandoned graveyard



I used swamp tufts and field grass which is greener. Should I darken the grass to match the tufts and whole base ? Possible result is on small base below. I tried to drybrush it a bit with brown.
