Maulerfiend Re-Based

Snow Re-Basing

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’ve got a tutorial for ice effects if you’re interested.

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?

Are you using the crushed glass technique?

Looks great. I’m going to copy this technique for some Hordes figs. Thanks for sharing.


Need more photos! It’s hard to see the difference with just one. I think mixing in some darker reds for the blood might also add some realism to the base. That way you have some fresh splatter, and some older goops


Looks great! Did you pick up the snow flock locally or order it online?

The gore technical looks convincing on the snow.
