Hey - I painted these a year or two ago, and I just rediscovered I had pictures of them. They were a quick 2-3 hours in the even job for a friend of mine, but they were kinda cute. It is just a tabletop job, but he adores them - which makes me happy. I'd love to get my hands on another set to see how much my painting (d)evolved. :poke:

Yes - it is really simple, if I can borrow a camera from someone, I'll make a quick tutorial.


Essentially I base the miniatures on thin plywood (.8 mm). Actually, I think these might be the bases from warmaster, so they are plastic and a bit thicker.


I then add some sand with white glue. Once this is try, I give it another coat with really thinned down white glue (the consistancy of milk - you can also buy a bottle of it from woodland scenics if you are wicked lazy like I am). What this will do is lock the sand into place so it doesn't peal up when you are playing with it. Then I spray primed the whole model black, which made the sand black.


I painted the figure, and then I drybrushed the sand with GW's scorched brown, Graveyard Earth and Kommando Khaki. For the bigger chunks, I gvae them a light dusting of ivory to make the rocks "pop" and then aded static grass. (Put down a blot of glue, take a pinch of static grass and dab it into the glue)


It is a really super simple and quick process which makes a decent enough looking base.
