Death Korps Bases For The NOVA Open
I've made so much progress on the Death Korps, that it is time to work on some bases. I see this army as complementing my Sons of Horus force. That means I have to produce what feels like an unlimited number of cracked cement bases. Now I don't like retracing old ground, so I made enough bases to provide me with extras for a while.
The cement like plaster is Hydrolcal, which has been broken into chunks and glued to normal GW bases. After the slightly diluted(water) wood glue has set, I'll probably carve in some bullet holes, and other details into the surfaces. Painting these is a snap. Base coat them black, and using an airbrush, paint them from dark to light grey at the edges. After that a quick run of Steel Legion Drab around the dirt looking areas finishes it up. Wash the bases with weathering powder, SWM Green Earth, and then go back and paint the edges of the bases black.
That seemed like such a quick and easy process until I realized I had about a 100 bases to paint. Too bad I can't do this while on the treadmill.
