A base for the Raider...

Unlike every other army I have done, this one is pretty unique in more ways than one.  It hit me about a week ago that none of my other armies had transports that needed bases!

Normally, I can base my infantry in any method I choose, and just paint the transports.

Instead, all these skimmers have their own bases, and I figured that I should at least try to make them match the infantry that they are carrying somewhat.

Here, you can see that I tried to make the base for the Raider as similar to the Grotesques as possible.

There are a few Grotesques with this kind of base, so I think it should be pretty neat!

I am looking forward to the group shots of the Grotesques with the Raider!!

If possible, I am trying to get one Grotesque painted which will look like it is jumping off the Raider.  This will really let everyone know exactly what unit is on board :-)  It will be magnetized, so that he can join the rest of the unit if I have the points to include him in future games.


  1. I just stumbled upon your blog.
    Very nice indeed, lovely freehand and a really nice dirty weathering you don't see to often.

    1. Many thanks for the kind words, and for checking out the blog! Lots of stuff to peruse...
