Now this is something very different from the last week's worth of posts!
This is, however, a huge part of every army that I create... the bases. It sets the theme in such a powerful way. The more elaborate you go with your bases, the more intricate story that you weave. Obviously, this set has a pretty specific theme!
These bases were created with backed sculpey clay which was carved, along with Green stuff and Apoxy sculpt. Some more painted images:
These WIP shots give you an idea of how they were done...
Basing can be a lot of fun, and not just a necessary evil :-) They can be a lots of fun to paint just by themselves! This set of bases was designed to be quite interchangeable, so that various pieces could be used in combination, or all by themselves.
