A bit of Marble again...

As I get into more of the Sisters, I require bases!  So, I painted the other 8 bases for the rest of the squad.

As you can see, they are designed to match the bases you have seen in the color test figures.

For those not familiar with this process, it is baked Sculpey sheets that have been carved and placed on top of cork.

There are many posts on that topic here in the Basing Section... with a few step by step articles.

These really are my favorite bases.  I enjoy the more three dimensional bases that have bitz, corpses, skulls and so on, but I love painting marble!

Still two more squads worth of bases to paint!  Stay tuned!

Another Music Man

We got trouble... starts with 'T' and ends with 'E' and that spells trouble.

For the poor saps on the wrong end of 100000 flashlights!  Hah.

Sorry for the odd pictures here.  The battery ran out on the regular camera, and none could be found, so I had to use the phone.  It does some odd things.

Anyway, here's a regular piper from the Highland Moss Guard set.  I believe I put a Voxcaster in every unit, even though the most likely deployment will be Big Blob.

However, there may be certain missions where secondary of tertiary points might require splitting the Blob into constituent parts to cover more terrain pieces or objectives.  It's another reason I tossed in a few Chimeras.  At least a few of the squads could get to an area quickly if needed.
