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.

Caveat: I am a basing Fan/fanatic; as such my comments should be taken cum grano salis.

OUTSTANDING! Even without a miniature the base tells a story. The water effect is quite nice; the slight clouding adds to the piece. It is BEAUTIFULLY painted...I LOVE the rat. VERY WELL DONE!

Thank you, I certainly take your comments “cum grano salis” :o)

Looks fantastic to me. What did you use to contain the resin until it cured?

 

Thank you. I used pieces of a blister-pack. Attached with narrow   pieces of double-sided tape at the (black) bottom edge, and sealed with silicone. The Vallejo still water do not stick much to a smooth surface, so it can be peeled of like a sticker.
