Having changed my technique for snow basing I wanted to go back and re-base my previous models. It’s going to be a long process and I won’t be doing it all at once. However, I do want to re-base the models that I plan to enter into the painting competition for the Standish Standoff this Saturday.
This base is for my Maulerfiend/Forgefiend. The model magnetizes to the base so it was an easy base to work on for playing with the new snow technique I’m using. The other thing I’m experimenting with is the Blood for the Blood God technical paint. This base has so much open area that I thought adding in some bloody areas would work well. So far I’m impressed with how realistic it looks.
I also added on a few ice patches that weren’t there before. I’ll do a tutorial for that soon. In hindsight I should have done it when doing this base…
For comparison, here’s a before and after to show the base changes.
It’s hard to pick up but the snow is fluffier in the new method and also whiter. I think the addition of the ice patches and blood really finishes it.
You think it’s an improvement?
