So, while I love the look of solid resin bases, Im not going to pump out 3-4$ a base for my 40+ model Raven Guard, let alone my 100+ model Ork army... (only my sergeants and veterans deserve such treatment)
So, I got my basing down rock solid in my opinion, and people seem to love it. So, as I promised to begin my "how to" tutorials on painting my RG, I will begin with basing. So what products did I use?
I begin with GaleForce Nine basing material. For about $12, youll have enough materials to base 10+ armies... Get the Basing Grit: Fine Grit, Static Grass: Green, and Flock Blend: Dark Conifer. I found these three make a great base and contrast as seen above. Split the materials with your friends, youll have more than you can use with just 1 container of each.
Then apply some good old flavorful Elmers Glue. DO NOT spend $118 on games workshop PV glue or whatever they call it.
I actually apply the glue with an old fine paint brush which I copped the bristles down about 2/3rds.
Stick the model over the basing container, and grab a handful or fine rock base and sprinkle it over the glue. Apply liberally and let dry. Next step is to do the SAME THING, but with the green grass, leaving some rock exposed for layering. Finally, after letting the grass dry down, glob some glue down and apply the dark conifer flocking. This will look like a small patch of weeds or grass that again adds another layer... Give this a try, I think you'll get a lot of complements as I have on how great the bases look (and for about 5 cents each... really).
