As many of you already know, I am working on tons of miniatures all at once, creating a vast assembly line that has figures in all stages of completion.
I am constantly prepping, priming, and basing new miniatures.
This is something I do virtually every day.
Hearing so many times about how painters get bored or burned out, I constantly suggest that they vary tasks. Instead of painting 100 blue space marines each day for a year, it is a much better idea to tackle other tasks to 'take a break'.
I really enjoy basing, so that's about as close as I get to taking some time out of the work day to have fun.
Now that my basing has such a tremendous variety of types and styles, this can be very entertaining!
If you recall the blog post from a few weeks ago about building around the broccoli bases, that's what I did with these Reaper Miniatures.
These were very simple Happy Seppuku cobblestone moulds used for a couple of Wild West Exodus minis.
These bark and branch bases are for some Warrior Nation and Outlaw figures.
As usual, some form of Vallejo sand paste is used as a 'binder', and for additional textures.
I had fun using some new large gravel on these Dark Sword bases.
Same goes for a few more Reaper figures.
Blasted concrete bases are a favorite sci-fi base design for me.
These pirate theme bases are for some Privateer Press figures.
I love this simple board design, since it also works very well for Wild West theme figures!
