Back again with the last installment of this article run on basing for Dystopian War flyers. Today I want to talk about a quick and easy way to make arctic water effects.
In the spirit of the other posts, I wanted to find an inexpensive way to build an arctic basic. After a lot of brainstorming and experimentation, I found a way to do it in a convincing manner.
The first thing you need in any arctic sea is icebergs. An economic way of achieving this, in scale, is to tear out some pieces of sponge and soak them in diluted PVA glue and stick them to your bases.
Vallejo's Water Effects. This will help to smooth out the texture of the sponge into a more icy structure. When you are happy with the texture - paint the iceberg white. This will help bring out any defects and you will see if you need to work more on it.
A small tip - if you are feeling adventurous, you can try adding some clear blue paint in minute quantities to the Vallejo Water Effects in order to create blue ice or simply a bluish reflection. Always do some tests first before applying to your bases first.
Until then farewell and good health.
