Now with bases!
DaBoyz GT , I still have a long way to go so I need to get serious about the painting grind. I also volunteered to provide 6 tables worth of terrain this year so I need a week or so at the end to whip that up. The good news is I hope to get a hobby/terrain article or two out of the process.
This week has already been a busy one with me, finishing 3 new models and basing 10.
Several readers have inquired about the washers I use under my bases.
I decided to use BATTLE READY FIGS for my bases. My concept for the army is (keep an open mind here) ISWAT which is an Inquisitorial Special Weapons and Tactics team (yes, you can lol) on assignment to police a hive city and cleanse it of heretic cults, mutants, and minor daemon incursions. As such, I wanted a base theme reminiscent of Necromunda. I decided to go with TECH BASES .
I painted them gold with a heavy black wash, dry brushed them with gold and a mix of gold/white, then stippled them with a mix of brown/red to add the look of rust. Once the models were on the base, I dry brushed some orange and yellow to add to the OSL effect from the force weapons. Here are the individual models on the new bases.
So that's the news for this week. I need to finish about 4 models per week so that will be consuming most of my free time. I also need to help play test the GT missions for revision so that means very little tyranid content for the next two months. I apologize to all my hardcore nid fans, but I know many of you understand that after focusing on one army for over a year, it's nice to have a side project.
