Raging Heroes Vestals: Making some bases.

Time to get back into some Raging Heroes!  These are some really wonderful miniatures.  Fine sculpts, high quality casts.  Nearly all of these are one piece casts!

In this case, we have some fantasy Vestals.  I am going to break up this group in half and paint them in 2 different flesh tones.  Some will be typical Drow colors, and the rest as GW Dark elves.

The one thing that will remain the same is the base.  I want to do some lava bases, and I began by sculpting some Apoxy sculpt bases.  I started with my usual tin foil to save clay and make them lighter.

Just as I did with the much larger 80 mm inserts, I wrapped the Apoxy sculpt around the tin foil.

Once it had set up for a little, I brought out the sculpting tools.

One by one, I created my rock textures on each base...

The group begins to take shape...

And now for some shots of the completed bases

I love the variety in the poses.

Can't wait to see some paint on these gals!!

Hey look... and early anniversary card from Mom & Dad.  And Babo.


  1. Very nice- I'm loving all the posts about how you're basing stuff. I've learned some good stuff from you and will be having a go myself very soon :)

    1. Thanks! I hope that basing is as much fun for you as it is for me. There are many times that I look forward to making and painting than the base, and the miniature is just there as an excuse :-) Not all minis are that great...
