Baugi's Basing Basics for Beginners

Recommended Posts

None at all!  I've done a couple and they're standing up quite nicely.

 

Edit:  I mean, YMMV, and I certainly wouldn't want to endorse an idea that might ruin your stamps, but it does seem to work.

Wrong post wrong thread, not sure what happened there. Will edit for next update.

Aw, thanks Ub3r!

 

Next up, some simple weathered flagstones for a quintet of the big Tre orcs! Apologies to those that don't have Happy Seppuku stamps, but I wanted to do these fairly quickly.

 

First, I did the hot glue thing (see earlier in this thread) and primed black!

Next, quick "dampbrush" of cold stone grey, stone grey, and the new HD concrete grey for a little edge highlighting. Bit of brown liner in the cracks.

Next, moss! Or mildew! Or something! I haven't decided!

Grass growing between the stones is always a favorite with moi...AND you need some of my mushrooms or some of your own.

They do look SPLENDID though. Now the suspense as to what you put on them can build...I love cliff hangers.

I do love your mushrooms, Malefactus, but mushrooms always sort of say "whimsical" to me, and these orcs are far from whimsical.  Grass, moss, ... skulls? Yes.

OMG hot glue Seppuku. That's some of the best news I've heard, ever. Thanks so much for that. I use the Happy Seppuku stamps on putty over cork for one of my Warmahordes armies, and GS is real expensive and Milliput doesn't stick well to cork. This will solve problems!

 

 

 

 

Also, "Hot Glue Seppuku" is the name of my Kyary Pamyu Pamyu coverband.

So I reprised the foam moss strategy using a few small dots of cyanoacrylate, foam, and a clip:

Result was decent. AP dark and green tones, and a drybrush of P3 ordic olive.

Final product shots tomorrow! Probably!

These are more or less done, except for cleaning up the edges with some black. Nothing too revolutionary here, but they set the scene, and they look decent. Just need to finish up the rest of these orcs, and I can show you what I'm doing with my goblins!

So I am obviously the worst, and I apologize. I didn't document the process here.

 

Basically, bones goblins, a ring of greenstuff, and a new reaper base.

Place ring of greenstuff around perimeter of base, squish goblin down, poke stone shapes into GS with sculpting tool to match goblin integrated bases.

I am not getting how you are applying the foam there as moss (with the clip? what?) Next time you do one if you can show a few more in process I would appreciate it. Thanks and keep it coming!
