As a follow up to my Legion of Orangeblight post, I've put together a quick step by step tutorial of how I made the bases. I like to imagine someone asked me how I did it.
I also want to remind anyone out there who might be interested that I am giving away some painted Genestealers as a little compo on my previous blog post - not many people seem keen so a very good chance you'll get one if you follow the instructions.
So, snowy bases.
Step 1: Select your bases. These are 40mm round recessed bases for Hordes figures, but this works for most bases.
Step 4: Positioning some cork. This is a 2-3mm thick piece from a tile. Different thicknesses work, depending on the look you are after and what you can find (I'm struggling to find a supply). The cork will stick really firmly to the PVA.
Step 10: Sand base coat. I'm using GW mournfang brown here.
Step 11: Dry brush sand. Using a small dry brush I've coated this sand in GW Averland Sunset.
Step 17: Was tidy up the paint on the bases but I quickly found out that the baking soda sucks paint to it from some distance away so this is not the place to do this. Tidy the bases at step 13.
Well that's it, hope this is useful and don't forget, free Genestealers!
