hey all, ive decided to start a chaos space marine army (yes even though i said i never would) and ive painted my first mini - took like 15 hours to do, cause they are multiple layers of thin paint. ive gotten to doing the base and ive still got to pick up dead grass and then ill paint the base rim.

however im stuck on a base rim color



help me decide whether to paint it Steel Legion Drab, Rakarth Flesh, leave it black or if you think another color is suitable go ahead and let me know


thanks

I would leave it black mate, but I just like to see a contrast on my bases, if you are set on coloring the rim, then I would agree with Mr T Hobbit

I always paint mine black. You could do both though and make one the rim for your characters (sgts) so they stand out better

Black. Looks great and chance of chipping and wear from gaming = 0%!
