Welcome to Librarium Online!
I'm trying to go for a desert base, here's a picture of my warboss (still needs decal/final touches).
Do you think the Desert Yellow I based my Warboss with looks better then the Bleached Bone on the grots in the background?
I'd like a bright base, I'm using some of the sand that came with the Mega Paint Set (I got it for 50% off ;p).
Should I bother highlight/shading the base sand though that's pretty much what I want it to look like? If so, what's a good set of colors. Can I just use some diluted black ink to give some basic shading?
I like the desert yellow base better, i think you should probably paint/highlight the sand, though how you should do it is past me.
"I am the architect of fate!"
Base Desert Yellow
Basecoat Desert Yellow
Overbrush Bleached Bone
Drybrush Skull white
I might make the base Snakebite Leather, or some Desert Yellow/Snakebite Leather mix. I really really hate making base colors mixes though (it's a pain when making a big army)
Mine is, I think, similar to that one except that I painted the side of the base chaos black at the end.
Prime Chaos Black
Heavy drybrush Scorched Brown
Light Drybrush Bleach Bone (Heavier on bigger stones)
Used sand with some bigger (gravel) stones.
It looks similar it's just that I think the black side of the base makes it a bit more versatile when playing on different surfaces. Just my three cents
