Hi everyone, it is with great pleasure that I present you today my latest project. I just completed the display base for the eleven Fox Critters I painted at the beginning of the year. I used Woodland Scenics ready-made fall colors trees and Bachmann Scene Scapes spruce trees as well as various undergrowth foliage, turf, natural stones, sand and realistic water effect. The base itself is made of wood, masonite hardboard and putty. I made the benches and the tente frame with real branches. For more details see the Fox Critter Rogue Camp Diorama WIP.
The camp fire, the two chest and all the Fox models are magnetised to the base and can easily be removed. Every Fox are from Dark Sword Miniatures and were sculpted by Dave Summers.
Your comments are very welcome.
Startet on this base for a Vermin Tyrant from Avatars of War. It Started out as a test piece for a later project with water effect.
But halfway through I found out about the Water Base Competition from Massive Voodoo, and thought 'Why Not'.
So I finished the base, and send in pictures.
It is my first time using water effects. I chose to use the Vallejo Still Water. Partly because I thought the two-part resin types seemed quite difficult to work with, and this was not supposed to be very deep; aroun 5-10mm. And partly because that was what the local shop had.
The water did not turn out that well, there came quite a few 'waves' around the edges and close to the rocks and things. I'm not sure if that would have been better with two-part-resin.
I did circa 5-6 pours of the Vallejo Still Water to reach this depth.
The painting part I'm very pleased with, not least the marble effect on the white tiles. It is a bit more visible in real life than on these photos.
(It will problably still look rather noob-ish in the competition, but what the heck.. there is also random prices -haha).
Edit: I should notice that the big rat is an old Ral Partha, the heads on spikes are from Avatars of War (came with the mini), and the two main tiles is from Scibor. The rest is homemade from putty, kitty litter and a piece of bark.
I was tasked with painting up a little ceramic puppy statue- but I couldnâ€™t help but think it looked like Barong. Especially the way he is portrayed in the Persona games.
So, thatâ€™s the direction I took him in. The basing is all my construction (it is based on images of Balinese bridges).
Anyway, here he is:
