Hi all, So I've put my orruk army on bases which use milliputty and a greenstuffworld roller. I love the look but I typically finding several models per game fall off their base. My current method is simply supergluing them. Does anyone have a more successful technique to secure the models to their bases?
In something slightly different from the usual doom and gloom which we find ourselves under recently I have just finished painting, and magnetising, my Maw-Krusha. I am going to magnetise it to the base in order to make it easier to transport, using some really powerful magnets. However despite this I'm not sure how I actually want to do the base. My standard basing technique is super simple. A coat of Stirland Battlemire to add some textures and underlying colour followed by a layer of Valhallen Blizzard which doesn't cover all of the "Mud". This gives the effect of a snow ontop of muddy ground to compliment the paint scheme I use for my army. Upon completing my Maw-Krusha I'm reasonably happy with the colour graduation and final product however it is very white/blue. I'm worried that if I just do a snow base it will cause the model to just look like a blue white blob and detract from it. As a result I want to create a base which contrasts with the Maw-Krusha in order to emphasis the model and, through the colour clash, really highlight the model. I am however having the Issue that I've never really done proper basing before. Prior to the Ironjawz I was a child/teenager when I last painted and my bases were brown paint. Though I have put more effort into the Waaagh! I have yet to do anything which wouldn't be considered simplistic. So I'm left with no real idea how to achieve the effect I want and have struggle to find any guides on the internet. Problem is, as I said above, I have no Idea how to achieve this. So I turn to you guys in order to find tips, assists and ways in which I can achieve this. Either through modelling the base or even colour schemes to achieve the vibrant summer look. This can be as simple as how to put the raised bits on either side to more specific things such as what scenery would look good on the base. I'll work out how to include the magnets, that's no problem. It's just I've put in the region of 60+ hours into painting him and the last thing I want is a ****** base to let him down. Thanks in advance to anyone who can help.
