Cheers Warden appreciate the kind words. Trying to get back into it is always fun
So i think im close to finishing my bastiladon.. This is the 1st minature that ive ever done a basing for and it was hard to decide on what too much decoration and what wasnt enough lol...so i thought id give him a swampy theme.. Anyway ill post all the pics and please let me know if its too much or not enough cheers...
ive tried out some stuff i found at the local hobby store called AK water gel swamp green
glued down 2 large rocks for the front feet to plant on and the swamp green gel.. starts off a creamy white then goes to a darker green as it slowly dries
ive snapped a small twig from outside to make it look like the bastiladon has smashed through it and broken it down
a standing tree with rocks and moss
added some stones into the back and a larger one to the front
final product for now.. the white gel look will darken up and go green with a little time
.. just feel like it needs a little something at the front and right side.. maybe some sand or moss what do you think??
That water gel stuff looks interesting! Next time I would definitely build the base up and apply that last. I wouldn't go OTT on adding stuff to the front, you don't want to distract people from the model itself.
If I could offer any other advice it would be to paint the other additions ot the base such as the foliage and branches... At the moment they look like stuff stuck on the base, not part of the base itself.
cheers Ritual... yeah iv tried to place the green gel onto the rocks to make them look like its lapping onto the rocks.. definately looks like ive missed a few cheers.. when the green gel dries ill try and touch it up abit around the bottom where the sand at the back meets the swamp and ill paint the rocks as well..And definately paint the branches and trees to make it fit in more.. thanks for that appriciate the tip
Also love the old style paint pots, brings back memories!
This guy has some nice water effect vids
