i used to be the guy who sits there staring at other peoples models and thinking i could never do that sort of thing but when i actually sat down and gave it a try, i found that its not actually that hard to make something a little different. bases are great for this because no matter how good your model looks he needs to be standing on something. so i decided to make a few and see how it goes ...




#1 is just your average GW base with a couple of pebbles and painted to look like water

#2 is just sand and PVA painter snot green then gone over with goblin green (with a couple of rocks painted in there)

#3 is a small piece of plasticard and an old table-tennis net painted mithril silver (i also cut a small grove to look like the joining of 2 sheets of metal and some tiny dents around the edges to look like rivets)

#4 is another simple one, its just a normal base with tooth-pick tips glued around the edges and a SM helmet on it painted just black with a chaos symbol under the helmet

#5 is just like #3 but with an extra "level" i just put another piece of plasticard under the first and under half the netting and cut a tooth-pick down the middle for cables

these each took about 30 seconds each to do and they are just a little something to help "complement" your model and make it look a little different to all those others out there.

ps: please excuse the pics, couldn't get camera to focus properly

hope this helps some of the new people who are coming into the wonderful world of warhammer

heya stugg, so nice and concise. I might suggest taking individual pictures(clearer) and putting links to each of them on the 1 through 5, so people interested can click and take a better look. The picture is a bit blurry, it looks like you tried to get too close. If you have a reasonable camera you could back up a bit take the picture and use your photo editor to make it bigger.

Hope this helps.

Hey Stugg... as you said. Despite these being simple they are effective to complement a model on the table... rep for you! ;Y

ya i don't know what happened with the camera, i took them from quite a way away from them, the width of that pic is about 1/3 of the whole shot i took but it just wouldn't focus. i was probable shaking a bit or something. but this is just a simple tutorial to help some people who might be a bit stuck so you kinda get the picture (lol get it :p i made a pun)

Are you making use of a "macro" feature on the camera? (its usually signified by a flower symbol)
(BTW, as an aside, please capitalize your "I" when referring to yourself, grammar and punctuation doesn't need to be PERFECT but he goes a LONG way in helping people who don't know the english language well to understand it easier if there is a standard.) Thanks
