Bases

The bases are from Custom Meeple. After assembly I primed them black, masked off the lip of the base, and then went to town with the airbrush. My plan was to use a hexagonal stencil but I discovered that A) it was going to make things look far to busy and, more importantly, B) getting good results with stencils requires technique and patience, both of which I was in short supply of for 24 bases. In the process, I used 3 or 4 different reds on a base and discovered that, while it seems counterproductive to paint over something you’ve already painted, using multiple shades creates depth and realism.

with this knowledge, I went to town on the rest and then went back over all of them with a red/brown mixture airbrushed along one side of the lines between the tiles. I then went back in with a brush and some red lightened with Vallejo Sunny Skin for an edge highlight, again on one side of the lines. Finally, I pulled off the masking and edge highlighted the black rim and grates with grey.

I’m quite happy with the result, although some of my highlighting got a little out of control.

The base characters are done!

Finally, after cutting the bases off a year ago, I’m going to slap some paint on these guys. Finally, after cutting the bases off a year ago, I’m going to slap some paint on these guys.
