    That looks amazing. :D

    Ps. I find mixes of slate blue, tan, and browns make for realistic rock colors.

    Very nice work!

    Could you expand on how you made your river look so good? I'd love to do something like that on my basing work.

    Thank you for posting such a detailed step-by-step process for making your basesss! And for putting the materials you used for water basing. Amazing work, you are inspiring those of us who haven't based their lizardmen yet to start working harder... :shifty:

    Thanks for the inspiration!

    Thank you guys! :) :)

    @NIGHTBRINGER
    I don't know... its just a base colour of brown (the same as outside the river) with a little tint of beep blue (Airbrush) and then Gloss Varnish.
    Then its two layers of Vallejo Still Water and that's it.

    I'm not 100% happy with the result, the Still Water shrinks too much, I need to go into the resin based water effects to give it a real realistic look to it, adding more depth and being able to see submerged stuff inside!
    But for this base (and since the big lizard that is going on top is so fat that covers the majority of the base anyway) it will stay like this...

    You can usually get raw cork from craft or pet stores.

    The detail on these bases is absolutely amazing! I love the little shrubs and flowers. I'll definitely be bookmarking this for when I (finally) paint some of my wife's Aelfs.
