    Have some touch ups on the models but I’m pretty happy with the basing so far. Feels a bit sparse though

    Tried to experiment with submerging some stuff in the water and it turned out awful. Looking for ways to clean up the back of the base and the waves over the sharks please help, the frustration is real lol.

    I am on the other hand pretty happy with my priest

    I think the sand on the beach needs a few seashells or something, at least a few dots of different color in the sand to make it look less plain.
    But nice job on those, they look nice!

    I agree. If you live fairly close to the beach, next time you're there pick up some shingle and add it to your bases. I did that with mine and it breaks up the monotony a bit better

    Thank you! Shells are a good idea. I wanted to turn the carnos base into a bit of an action scene with the sand, but I’m afraid of making it too busy with a dead body or something like that, so maybe I’ll just look into some shells. Though I do have some small pieces of driftwood.

    Oh snap I wish I had seen this before I started this adventure, those look fantastic. Go beach Dino’s! I’ve got an assorted pack of shells here so maybe I’ll get to crushing them up

    What have you used for the water effects on the bases?

    to get a more realistic wave apply with a cocktail stick and flick it into crests then when dry, drybrush the tips white.

    Your sand needs another colour, try brybrushing the edge a lighter cream/white that will help break up the sand colour. good job so far keep it up ;)

    Your magma knights look great - almost detracts from how derpy the models are!

    Well shit that does look a lot better. Water effects are a little unforgiving so hopefully I can try that out over what I have without needing to replace the models

    Some works in progress. I’m terrified to touch the wings and fuck it up as I’ll never get those proper wing colors again. Going to do some minor waves against the ruins and try to dry brush the bodies to keep the details subtle

    Trying to get these and my bastilodon conversion done this weekend for a 4K game on Thursday. Wish I had gotten another unit of these. They’re equipped as Rippers but I hate the ripper heads sooo

    Those remind me of mine, I used almost the same base colors. :)
    (I used purple on the top and blue on the botton)
