You could always paint the planet onto the base. The way Pingo did with some of her bases.

 

I saw a really nice space dragon with a nebula painted on it's base, which was otherwise unadorned. Something like that, perhaps?

I am still trying to decide. All are good ideas

 

If I do use the planet, I most likely will remove part of it and have it sticking out of the base, perhaps do my best to paint the other half on the base....

If you're going to go with 3D elements, you could always work some asteroid bits into the scene (and possibly use them as a way to disguise supports for the kraken and/or UFO).

 

Whatever you do, I'm confident this is going to be AWESOME.  I am looking forward to your progress!  :D

Can I get some Fries with that Calamari??

 

You could use a backdrop with space/planets, and put the vignette with the Kraken, and the UFO in front of it, tie it together with some smaller asteroids?

part of the issue is that i do need to be able to store this, and something that grand i don't really have high hopes of keeping either in one piece, or stored anywhere. Smaller is better, i think...i'll try a smaller base and more simplistic

I need a flight stand for this guy @.@ anyone know a good place to get one? It needs to be fairly large, due to his size

 

Dragon Forge has a nice selection but he is about two months behind in orders. Then again those are orders he needs to cast and I am not sure if the delay would apply to just a flight base.

Do a google search for Litko Bases, they have all sorts of cool bases for flight stands and many different sizes. They also do custom bases, just click on "BaseMaker" at the top and fill out the form.

Such a great idea,

Kev!

      “...and I, Colonel Duke Jones, stand on the surface of Mars for all of humankind and in the spirit of exploration that’s taking our species beyond its Earthly bounds. And I’m lighting this cigar to celebrate a successful mission.”
       
      “Haha. Good speech, Duke. You're the first human in 76 years to stand on the surface of another planet. How’s it feel to be further from Earth than any other human being?”
       
      “Pretty good, Pioneer. It’s humbling and really gives a sense of perspective. The air is thin but breathable. Those terraforming guys did a great job. Hey, the camera’s working, right? This is being broadcast back to Earth?”
       
      “Yep, it's all good. There's a delay but they're getting it. Audience figures are even bigger than Kim Kardashian’s state funeral, so well done!”
       
      “How do things look from up there in orbit?”
       
      “We’re all good, just watching you and keeping an eye on your vitals.”
       
      “OK, Pioneer. I’m gonna have another puff on this cigar and—”
       
      “Duke, sorry to break in, but Jim just had an idea. The Earth is directly behind you. Could you turn around so we can get a shot of you looking back at it?”
       
      “Sure thing, Pioneer.”
       

       
      “How’s this?”
       
      “That's just perfect, Duke. Everything’s A-OK.”
       
      “Good to know, Pioneer. We're still live, right?”
       
      “We certainly are. Jim, you owe me fifty dollars.”

      This is going to be one of the most ambitious projects I've ever attempted, so I thought making a WIP thread would be a good idea.   If everything goes well, I plan to enter this beastie at ReaperCon this year, so fingers crossed!
       
      This is an idea I've had bouncing around in my head for awhile, and started gathering materials for it last year.
       
      My plan is to take this lovely critter:

       
      and rather than using the shipwreck as a base, use half of one of these:

       
      and paint the Kraken to look all spacey and such.
       
      So! To that end, I now have one of these!

       
      I'll just be using the top half for the base, though:

       
      Which means that the bottom hemisphere is available for...testing.
       

       
      Huzzah!

      From the depths of SPACE, they came!

      A menace unlike any the Solar System had yet seen! Their weapons--inexorable! Their strange mental powers--UNCANNY! 

      Bombshell's Counterblast line has a faction called the Edofleini. Can't prove anything, but I feel strongly that the designer had read David Wiesner's "June 29, 1999" at a formative age. The Edo are giant-brained cephalopods with zap guns and psionic powers, and if that doesn't tickle your fancy, perhaps a Space Squid has used an Emotive Transductor to suck all the JOY and WONDER from your heart? (They can do that, you know!)

      I couldn't resist, anyway. Tried to give them a color scheme inspired by this coconut octopus. 


      Here's the four-eyed leader of the bunch, in its magnificent robe of office.


      The gold-armored subordinate with Neural Halberd:

       
      A vicious enforcer, tentacles flailing:

       
      A four-eyed underling:

       
      And a runtish Spawnling:

       
      And here's a group shot!

       
      Keep watching the skies! Guard your brains! ARE YOUR THOUGHTS YOUR OWN, CITIZEN?

      Ever so many more pictures below if you click:

      Wish I'd taken more in-progress pics here, but when the muse strikes...

      Anyway, I got my hands on some figures from Bombshell's Counterblast, specifically the Edofleini faction. Could be described as BRAIN SQUIDS FROM SPAAAAAAACE!! (I assume you read that with the reverb turned up.)
      Decided to use the color scheme from this lovely shot of a coconut octopus:


      These were the paints used for the bodies; AP Toxic Mist plus some turquoisish Reaper sample paint was used for the suckers, and AP Greedy Gold for the jewelry and weaponry. Also used AP Kraken Skin for the leader's mini-cape. Seemed appropriate.

       
      Blue-black tentacles, eventually shading up to the rusty Astorath Red.


      A touch of color for the accessories and suckers: 

       
      Then a great amount of drybrushing in shades of orange and yellow. I wanted the siphons to be the brightest points. 


      I feel like they are close to done--should I add another coat of red wash, or use something darker?

      I like to think of this as an "all-that-can-eat-you meal", best prepared deep fried.  :-)
       

       

       
      This beastie was very challenging to paint, and all throughout I kept trying to figure out what I would do for a base.  The shipwreck is awesome, but it left the tentacles so close to the tabletop that I felt it might make play challenging, assuming we ever use it, so I figured it needed some seafloor and weeds.
