Thank you. Basing is, in fact, a little difficult to do if you've little experience and "know how". However, it's not so hard if you can grasp the basic techniques...which is easily done by trial and error. The kits I offer through my webstore provide enough material to decorate most any fanatsy themed base. Easy to use, easy to create wonderful looking bases. I even provide 3 bases in the kits so you can practice on them (or use them). I've been told by many customers that the kits are perfect for all skill levels; novice, advanced and master. I can't argue logic, seeing how I only use my own product to decorate my bases. Proof is in the pudding...so-to-speak.

Here is an example of what I mean by "grasping the basic techniques" and applying them to the decorative process...



I was shooting for a brilliant and colorfull fantasy scene and I think I captured it in this base. Note: The base only took about 30 minutes to prep, build, paint and decorate. If I were just starting out, it would probably have taken me well over an hour...trial and error is the best skill asset we have available. I use it all the time. Let me clarify here that I am, by no means, a master of all things base-related. I have had over 15 years of experience using trial and error though...so naturally I've become better and better over the years. It also helps so much that I have access to my own kits that provide everything I need to produce bases such as the ones I've posted here.:wink:

mate they're wicked thanks for adding my ideas
Thanks. What ideas did I add?

I have plans to do tutorials for all seasons, including winter/snow.

I do, but they are mostly sculpted from scratch and not easily constructed. I don't have any recent pictures of any though. I may have to dig around and see if I can find some.

i love your 'little pond' on one of the bases! but yeah, do you do any temple bases or industrial?
Thanks! I like the water that's included in the basing kits, you can add inks to it for coloring effects. Amazing stuff. I do have plans to make industrial "basing inserts". The basing inserts would be made from black resin.

how do you stick the modle on f hes metal ?
Drill a hole in each foot that is going to be touching the base. If the shape of the miniature allows it, drill a hole 5mm deep, 3mm minimum. The important thing here is that you drill the hole 90 degrees up from where the base will be situated. This makes sure that once the pin is fitted it will be vertical and give the best fit.

Place a pin in the drill hole(s) to check that the pin(s) is at the right angle and to determine the length needed. Make sure the pin is long enough to fit into both the miniature and the base. If your not sure then its always best to start with a longer length than you need and cut off excess later. If using more than one pin (one in each foot) then make sure that the pins are the same length.

Glue the pin(s) into the drill holes of the miniature and allow to dry.
Now we need to determine where to drill the hole(s) into the base. Place a small blob of paint onto the end of each pin then carefully place your miniature over the area of the base you want it attached to. Gently press down on that area with your pins to leave paint mark. This is where you need to drill.

Drill through the base using your paint marks as a guideline. Dry run the fit to make sure everything sits well. Apply glue to both area’s and fix together.
