  1. To my mind, such as it is, The Base is a key element in the making of a successful miniature creation. The base provides a place & time for the miniature at the least. A really good base provides a story telling setting for the miniature...the story telling is what I try for. Without the base, the miniature is a lifeless thing. Without the miniature, the base is an alien landscape. I LOVE making bases...I'll bet you figured that out all by yourself. Sometimes the creation of a base will precede the miniature by years. When I finished The Three Trees & The Zombie R.O.U.S., I spotted a base that I had started & left in its early development quite some time ago. I was watching a Haunted Forest Base how-to on YouTube & now I needed to work on that forlorn base. So this is where it stood on Sunday: Monday the build was just about done by evening. The sand was glued down, the face done up in Kneadatite (green stuff), rocks in plumber's epoxy putty, the branches & roots got a teased out hot glue coating, & the bark in DAD (air dry clay): Today I did my white over black base coat...base base coat...on everything except the DAS: Tomorrow the DAS will get a spray of workable fixative & then the white & black treatment. I might figure out what mini(s) will go the thingy in the interim...or not. Until then...
