Aloth_Corfiser Posted September 15, 2020 Share Posted September 15, 2020 (edited) Hello Pointy Aelves It is an exciting time of new Threads and new Minis - so I wanted to create a Topic were we could collect our Pictures and general advice about Bases, Terrain, Gaming Tables or Display Boards. The whole Idea started while I was looking for an optimal Tree-Height for AoS. My 2 Trees were bought in a local Hobby Store shortly before it got closed forever and because I thought that they looked cool. They are ca. 15cm in height, a little small maybe - but good stand ins for Trees which are not that bulky. My humble submission are 2 Trees and my little contingent of Vanari, that are painted as of yet. With the Lumineth I really discovered basing as kind of a Passion and I would like some feedback as I think, sometimes I might have "overdone" the Bases a little. 😄 I will tone it down a little with the Flowers. The trees are on 40mm Bases because I got some spare ones - but maybe I will integrate the Trees into a larger Terrain piece in some distant Future. For the Procedure: I apllied a little Layer of Stirland Mud, when it had dried I drybrushed it with Mournfang Brown (but not always) Then I went crazy with Spices: After Army Painter Basing Glue on the Mud Area I just sprinkled on some dried Basil and driedTarragon. I bought grass-flock but was unhappy with it because the Green was really intense and it got everywhere. So I guess the Spice Idea was at first a bit of a makeshift thingy. But after I glued on Tufts (GW Middenland Tufts and Warlord Games Moorland tufts) and Flowers (Gamers Grass) I started to really like them. (Plus they smell quite nice now 🙃) I envision a lightly forested area and maybe I will try and go for a "fey -mythical Forest feel" - the Lumineth advancing out of the Woods. (Because Phalanxes in the Woodlands is a baad Idea hehe) So if you are working on some Terrain or Bases or have Questions about Materials feel free to share it here please.
