Basing the Chaos Lord
I found an old IKEA table leg, and sawed off a piece of that. This would make a nice starting point for the display. I added some plaster and such, and then fiddled a bit with bits and pieces. I found I had these miniature bricks somewhere, and decided to use them. That stuff is fun!
By using Warhammmer Fantasy movement tray plating, I created a stone tiled floor. I used another part to cut out the base circle in the centre, which is easier that trying to savage the bit you cut out of the main floor.
I added some wire, tubes and such, and then the brick wall in the back corner. On to painting. Remembering: make sure to paint the highlights towards the model, so the outer rims of the base are more dark than the centre. Also, I did not want to go off balance with the color scheme. I notied that the main colors in the Lord were grey/black, reds (obviously), browns (bones) and blues. I decided upon the red, browns and greys for main use. This way I could let the blue cloak on the lord really stick out, while tying the rest of the piece together.
Still need to do a lot. Paint the muddy groud below the deck, add some water effects, and ofcourse put a nice pattern on the floor (still deciding what). Got any ideas?
Oh and ofcourse I finished the final bits on the Lord, like the sword, the plasma gun, and this piece here of which I am pretty proud of that the red-and-bone came off so beautifully. I am thouroughly enjoying myself!
Hey, and please, don't hesitate to leave a comment. I just passed 50 followers this week (it may not seem a lot, but I'm pretty proud of it already) and I am sometimes anxious to hear from you guys. Do you have questions? Do you want me to show something specific? Or make a tutorial? Just tell me! Or just say hi :)
