Also a great toxic base:
Accessories: Snakes, twigs, a few bones, rocks
Accessories: Pretty much everything that isn't hot, duh.
Here are some of my Beach bases. The photos aren't great so when I get the chance I'll post some more that better show of the bases and the effects.
(Not the best example but better than nothing)
That's a nice one. Is it a resin base? I'd be curious as to know how that wavey sand could be replicated.
I have no clue. Found it by googling desert base I think.
If you got clay pretty wet then put something hard and flat in it and pulled it away you'd get something close... I'll experiment when I'm not lazy and let you know.
Load the base with a lot of pva then apply a very fine sand then just push the glue with your finger, reapply sand where you have touched.
Intriguing. Sounds like it will be difficult to get such uniform waves, but it is worth a go!!!
If anyone has any examples of painted flagstones kicking around, I would be interested. Working on mine currently and they're not coming out how I want just yet...
I dunno, colours don't feel right. I've tried painting the odd one a different colour to break it up but I'm just not feeling it. Might paint it all back to grey and start again. Think I'm too far down this weird rabbit hole to fix it.
This was before I spotted in some colours... Thinking I will take it back to here, maybe a touch darker, and make the rubble a bit more sandy coloured.
Maybe do one or two blocks lighter and the gaps darker, use the rubble to add colour, I like the colour of that.
I'll give it a go tonight, though I have a whole lot of Griffon to paint.
I feel lighter now all my stuff is on ebay, I have kept around 40 unpainted models and all my lizards everything else is going, I had shit loads of models!!!!!!!
But I now feel better about just painting and converting no pressure.
Added some links to the first page. But not all of them yet.
