This month is onceagain dedicated to Dystopian Wars, but with a slight twist. Instead of painting up more models, I want to embellish them a bit by working on the bases of the flyers.
I know clear bases are practical and that they can be used with any terrain, but I like my models to standout and giving them themed or well made bases is a step in that direction.
The first type of base I want to make is a normal water base. You might remember the Callimachus or the Deadalus models I painted up a while back. So to begin, I start by undercoating them black. I find this step to be crucial, especially if you want to stimulate deep sea.
The next step is to choose a nice deep blue and start dabbing the paint on the base. I would use an old flat brush for this. Before the paint dries, start adding greens, yellows and white, depending on how deep you want the sea to look. Mix it in thoroughly until you get even blends.
Hawk Games, you can always buy more bases and attach the flyers to clear bases during land warfare. That is what I do anyway.
Until then farewell and good health.
