More fun with bases!

Here's a few bases that I was working on for the Raging Heroes Kurgonavas.  I wanted to experiment with an old watercolor technique... one where you try to use the chemical content of the paint itself to create interesting effects.

The idea is to put down a layer of transparent glaze, and then toss in some opaque calthan brown.  These things don't want to mix naurally, so they 'resist' each other, almost like two magnets with the wrong polarity.  You can get some interesting swirls and strange patterns as a result.

I did this on a few other bases as well...

I let that dry...

...and did the rest of the normal work.
