Many of you may remember my first attempt at panting a marble base. Well, I recently picked up a FW GK Dreadnaught body, and started working on a base to match.
I started with the blue marble base, and decided it needed something more. So, I started experimenting again, and ended up with a sandstone/granite look on the aquila. However, I'm not convinced that it is the best it could be, and may replace it with a "brushed metallic" version.
Thoughts and opinions welcomed.
i think it looks awsome and i was just wondering is it just painted on the base or is it painted on a material glued to the base? ........... example - like painted on plastic card .

It is painted directly onto the base. I used the point of a hobby knife to create the lines, and went from there.
That looks great, it would be cool to see a full army like that.
Maybe it could be cleaned up around the lines, but it doesnt really matter.
Might just be the angle its taken from
I really like these, the base looks great and unusual. However, I agree about the eagle. The current colour doesn't seem to suit, perhaps trying it a more grey marble effect? Otherwise, gold never fails with these things. -__^
Part of the reason the lines look "unclean" is the reflection of the light from the gloss overcoat. I may try to put some flat over the lines, to dull them out.
I had considered grey marble, but having a Grey Knight Dreadnought might be too much grey/silver. Gold on the other hand, I had not considered... good call, KU.
spacemarine, go to *this link* for more info on how I did it. The only difference this time was using a sponge to add the shadow grey over the blue, and reapplying the bleached bone over the brown. Previously, I had stippled paint with a stiff brush.
