Totally addicted to BASE

Ok, had a play about with the snow/street base for the heavy but still don't like it.

I also made up three infantry bases too.

I quite like the bases plain and may leave the snow off all together, what do you folks think?

Until next time....

  1. I like it without snow.
    Something else you could do is put some gloss varnish on the base, to simulate melted snow.

  2. I think they look great both with and without snow, but I also think the snow rather critically ties the bases and models together. Otherwise they kinda look like poor chumps who got stuck with the supplies of winter camo uniforms during a hot summer in the city. "Oops, Administratum mixup... sorry, guys."

  3. I like the snow as well. I absolutely love the stone curbs, it's brilliant how a little 3-d texture can make a base stand out. I just found your blog and am an instant subscriber!

  4. thanks folks,

    I need to make a final decision today as i want to make moulds for casting tonight.

    I am torn between the urban bases above and doing slate "islands" in snow - so the figs will stand on the slate and the base will be covered in snow with the odd stump and folliage poking through.

    if i had the money, i could mag the bases and do both! ;o) then i could swap the army according to the table i play on!! that would be sweet! but would cost a bit more than i can afford atm, have a commission or 2 coming up soon so maybe.

    Anyway enough rambling and back to work!

    Thanks again,
