A big thankyou to everyone who supported the project, I thought It was highly successful and I achived alot(as you can see).
Part 2 (Amoured company) now starts on page 41

Well, Here we are at another one of my projects (i never seem to get things finished). I've deiced to give the good old death korps ago since I have a long summer ahead of me, (I live in the southern hemispere) and since they cost an arm and a leg, that should encourge me to finish this time. (i know i've said that before)

So i have 2 options.

A mercahdised (sp?) force (probably the most likley)

Or a siege Force.

I plan on maybe 2 platoons of DK, commands, Heavy weapons, Rough riders and maybe some storm troops if i have the money and the time left.

So far i've got, 2 squads (firing and advancing) , Autocannons (3) and the big heavy mortar with crew with more on the way. So i guess you wanna see some pics.

Well i worked all weekend and came up with the test scheme. Based of world war 1/2 german uniform. Still Work in Progress

Looks great so far, I'm trying to make a similar Krieg force (stormtrooper/grenadier mechanized force). I like the color scheme you have on that trooper, it looks really cool.

I like the earthshaker :)

The colour scheme is pretty nice, I love the mud :)

Can't wait to see more of it.

Out of the mech and the seige, I'ld go seige (only because I've never seen one). I am slowly (on hold at the moment) making a mechanised cadian army. I love the mech :P

11-12-2006, 08:07
If you can put that much detail on all your vehicals I say go with that unless your old cadian army is a mech one. I agree with CHEAKY though, I've never seen a seige army though, that would be pretty cool but probebly not as good... Love the test model; very dirty, very lovely!

11-12-2006, 08:27
Thanks for the comments, I'm really going for the dirty weathered look. The photos don't really capture the dirtness of the model. I've added more dirt to the front. as i said the model is still WIP.

I've assembled the next models on the painting rigg but i've run out of spray.

Not such a fan of the basilisk though.

Ps. the Panzer is looking awesome but theres just a little too much slackness in the tracks, if they were that slack it would lose them as soon as it turned a corner.

Otherwise i'll have to check back later for the tankette and the brassy to be finished.

12-12-2006, 07:40
well, I've been overwelmed with support. I'de just like to say a big

THANK YOU

to all.

First the mud is just plain Polyfilla those who know me probably realise i use it alot. shape how you desire and then paint. I've layed scorch b. Bestial B. and once finished apply PVA over the top. You usually need a few layer of PVA. Then gloss varnish over the top but i don't always go to that step.

@Codstick. 33rd is sold mate. Sorry. but how do you think i've affording all this expensive resin??? I'm still gonna paint the stormtroops that went with it so when i paint them i'll show them. SOrry.

Thanks again

Hey, what colours did you use?

liamrob
12-12-2006, 08:42
I might put some mud on the bases of some of my marines. I will just use PVA cause of its glossy effect. I might also try polyfilla bit.

Keep up the hard work and i can't wait for some more pics.

Still learning
12-12-2006, 08:52
The green is lots and i mean lots of Catachan green mix and layer/highlighted with camo green. The grey is layers codex/chaos.

Might of got ppl confused. The mud on the coat is tamyia wheatherine stick. and the mud on the base is polyfilla.

wow, your colour scheme is similar to my steel legions :D

Binky
12-12-2006, 10:30
Your Krieg colour scheme is almost identical to mine, think the only thing that is different is the water bottle (mine are bare metal) would post some pics but only got a camera phone so they would just be blurs!

One squad done so far (which arrived in the first week of release) with three heavy bolter teams, another squad and a heavy flamer waiting, hopefully will get them done over Christmas ready to start buying the new releases as they appear next year!

Somewhat of a small update. I can't start painting more troops because of the lack of spray. But i've almost finished my first Panzer and made a cool skull symbol. Also i've got picks of the next 3 troops. Any 1 got ideas for the turret gun and what it should look like??

I might leave them how they are I think, not alot I can do now that they are glued in place. I don't know much about track links of the ear but it does sorta give the world wars (1 and 2) feel to the chimera.

13-12-2006, 04:09
The tank looks cool. But, all logic would dictate that the treads get pulled taunt when the tank is in motion. Now, if you put another wheel there, then the treads looping out that far would make sense.

how did you do the shell casings on the base? are they GS too?

the skull symbol is aweome, i wish i had some skill :rolleyes: i also like the stubber on the front. good job!

SC

Still learning
13-12-2006, 08:29
@schoolcormorant. The casing are so easy to do. If you have any left over GS. Just roll it into a long thin tube. Then place it aside. Wait a day and it's hard then chop to deisire- easy. As for the skull, it's a GS cast of a forgeworld skull with wings cut off and place on the sides. The subber is just a stubber in tissue paper.

Ok, go some work done on the Taklette and CHimera. they are almost finished and await the airbrush, Probably on Saturday.

As for the tanks, thinking pazer grey or green. Dunno yet?

13-12-2006, 12:24
Might sound silly, but how did you manage to get the polyfilla to stick to the bases? I've tried using it before with some FoW stuff but it just would not stick.

Troops look good, and agree with others about the track. But its your army so you can do as you please =D

Still learning
13-12-2006, 22:29
??? just place the polyfilla on the base. It sticks as normal. You may not have the right amount of water/poly ratio.

As for the tracks, i'm thinking of changing. But i don't see how i can. I might buy some superglue remover and dunck the chimera in it and that should loosen the superglue i used. ??

- Just seen the new "at ease" squad. Might get one and mix them throungh the squads.

m3ntor
13-12-2006, 22:55
I wouldn't be surprised if this is where you got the idea (I know I did) but have you seen themightytechmarine's hellhound (http://z11.invisionfree.com/Work_In_Progress/index.php?showtopic=4772) on the WIP forums? Though I suspect his tracks may still be a bit loose from what has been said.

Also, if you do unglue the tracks, would you consider attaching the drive sprocket a little lower? It may give the top part of the tracks a better angle. Though this means you'd have to use a different track section at the top.

Still learning
14-12-2006, 01:36
yeah, thats where i got the idea from. In theory it worked well. But i'm starting to think otherwise. I'll see what i end up doing. I'm going to add different version of panzer throuhout the army. Si this might just be a one off troop transport.
K well just been into the city and got myself some new spray paint and a Tamiya 1/35 german weapons set. So expect some progress soon.

Well, after see Xuchilbara's use of German Weapons, i thought thats exactly what i need to "germanise" my project. So i went out and brought the Tamiya kit: http://i66.photobucket.com/albums/h252/amacdo/Death%20Korps/IMG_3162.jpg

And started to creat. I'm not going crazy on the normal troops. I'll probably just add one or 2 new guns to them. Heres my WIP Mg36.

http://i66.photobucket.com/albums/h252/amacdo/Death%20Korps/IMG_3160.jpg

I've also started paining the next lot of troops. This is an early WIP shot and i'm much further along with them now. Should be done by tommorrow althought i have work in the morning.

http://i66.photobucket.com/albums/h252/amacdo/Death%20Korps/IMG_3169.jpg

And to the rejioce of all, i've finnaly fixed the track design. Hows this?

http://i66.photobucket.com/albums/h252/amacdo/Death%20Korps/IMG_3180.jpg

Now how to i make it loot more german??

Ritterkreuz1
15-12-2006, 08:46
perhaps you could use Schützen (you'd not be the only one out there)
and give them a really germanish camo-scheme. Maybe something else than grey. There are many tipically german color schemes, so should take a look at it on google or so.

the krieg boys themselves, along with your weapons, are german enough I think.

I'm planning on making a few nebelwerfers which I want to use as missile launchers. It's easy to make the tubes yourself and put them on the Krieg heavy bolter chassis. It should look fantastic

Still learning
15-12-2006, 09:10
i'm not incluined to do the Nebelwerfers, altought i think it would fit the theme, i've already planned on maybe putting some panzerfausts (sorry all german speakers pls correct me if i'm wrong) as the primary AT weapon.

I will however look into the camo option. I don't don't want somthing too advance.

Two thumbs on the tracks- looks much better. Tamiya makes some great stuff. 1/35 should be too big for GW's models, but, oddly enough, it doesn't look anymore out of scale than the original weapons! :eek: Looks good.

@Xuchilbara, thanks mate great idea. I'll try it.

@Vaktathi, Just made a spray stencil for an Iron Cross i plan to put on the amoured skirts on the tanks.

@hallowed_are_the_ori, I just got them at the local hobby place. Cost my $8.95 Aus. You should find them at any local store that stocks Tamiya.

@Codsticker, GW guns are way out of scale. 1/35 is perfect size if not a little too small.

@Rictus, Yes i think that track look alot better, Expect an installment tonight.

@JageR, I'm considering useing an Armageddon Bassy. I just don't think my giant siege gun fits the theme of the army. I do have a FW Krieg motar that i might proxy as a bassy but again i don't think that fits the theme. I'll just see what happens. Either way, it's not gonna cost anything because i can just see the Rhino siege gun on Ebay.


Been working this morning so not much progress. I'll try get an update tonight.

Sorry if this has been asked before, how did you make the sprocket for the tracks?

Rictus
16-12-2006, 14:12
Codsticker: GW scale isn't exactly consistent, while the models are '28mm Heroic' Scale the weapons (and hands/heads I think) are actually bigger.

Vaktathi: That is a Wiesel, a multi-purpose carrier. Though more knowledgable tank heads may be able to correct me.

17-12-2006, 00:33
True enough. Still, FW models are supposed to be more true-to-scale then GW's regular range which is why I was suprised to see the 1/35 fit so well.

17-12-2006, 12:05
I'm not too keen on the aesthetics of the Chimera's built-in lasguns either. Xuchilbara's got the right idea; firing holes! But, I must add that the turret looks like it's wearing a crown?

The troopers look really very good! I do very much like the green. Possibly better than the grey I'm doing mine with (I want more colour!). I Look forward to seeing more!

firing ports, I've always through a bunch of assault rifles just waiting to be fired is kinda silly, I never mount them on my chimeras, opting instead for the infantry inside to poke their own out :)

thats fair ennough, i should have thought about that, it's ridiculous really, i think they look like galley oars kindof.

THe opponents with focus fire on The russes and Bassy and my ST harras the enemy. although alittle short on the menpower (50 troops) it's has quite a lot of HW on tanks and not to mention you can fire the autocannons out of the chimeras. Alot of points is spent on Transports so i might not go Mech after all if i write a better list. What do you think?

I think you have 10 points spare. . .

Good plans, good plans. Couple of things, though. The autocannon from the squads cannot fire on the move. You'll need to keep still (thus limiting mobility). However, you could fire the assault weapon and the hull lasguns. Also, use of the hatch leaves you open topped, a very dangerous situation. . .

The "sentinels" should be keep in units of one, since they are easier to use in such a manner; and they also have different weapons.

Finally, turret weapons. For 50% more you can get a linked heavy bolter or an autocannon on the turrets, both of which are super awesome! Also, a pintle or two would go down well. If you had the points.

oh yeah forgot that they can't move and shoot. Well there goes that plan. I think i'll still keep the autocannons in though. Because i don't have to move all the time. I'm not that worried about opentopped as i've got 5 chimeras, 2 russes bassys and sentienls. I think shooting at the chimeras will be the least of my opponets worries at first.

I will move the sentinels into units of one. Thanks for that.

Also. i can get Autocannon turrents! where does it say that? Man chimeras with AUtocannons plus squad autocannons and heavy bolters Times 5. ouch.

Thanks alot for you comments Highmarshaldave. Appreciate it.

As for the list. I'm thinking of maybe taking out the bassy and adding more troops. I just don't really see alot of AT power in there. Especially if the opponent rocks up with AV 14 stuff. But then again. i think the sound of 3 pie plates.

The painting is looking good, i really like the mud.

On the list:
The auto cannons are FW rules, Imperial armour #1, not legal in some tournaments/games.

List looks ok, a few points/questions:
1. Power what? weapons or fists?
2. Is it a senior officer with honorifica? if so why? you'd save pts taking a Heroic senior and not bothering with the honorifica, or if you want to save 5 pts take a junior and give hime the honorifica.
3. The armoured fist squad needs a chimera.
4. The sentinels should be seperated.
5. The russes need Hvy bolter sponsons, no if buts or maybes.

Those are my thoughts.

Cheers

Sheep, I did mathematics and the points total seem to include a ML/HB chimera. . . so thats okay.

I never noticed the senior officer/honorifica thing. Junior/honorifica (cheese) or heoic senior are the ways to go.

Now that I think about it, the russes should have sponsons. If they lose the battle cannon, then you're left with a higly mobile, well protected, fire support squad!

Finally. Using I.A. 1 in friendlies should be okay. Anyone who disagrees is (in my mind) disserving of being hit over the head with the book in question.

See above, las is a waste

Should i Keep the bassy in or trade it for more troops.

Trade in for suggestions above

Should i spent the left over points on Improved comms?

Not that useful unless you play a lot of escalation, if you do take it give it to a sentinel, thay always start on table.

Is 2 stormtroops really nessesary or should i swap 1 for some RRs.?

Keep it as is.

Lack of AT, how to overcome it?

Depends on pts, you cold rush forward and hope to get lucky melta hit, keep the Hq in you deployment and snipe, using their chimera to shield your full transports, or you could trade the melta squads infiltrate to deep strike and go for the rear armour on the turn they drop.

Also consider giving the squads veteran sarges for the extra Ld.

Hope this helps.

Hmm. . . If you're looking for AT fire and what not. . . drop the Basilisk, drop one Russ. Take a Vanquisher with lascannon, and exterminator with full heavy bolters (for anti troops) and heavy bolter sponsons on the remaining Russ. However, the use of Imperial Armour is still an issue.

Also, drop the lascannon and medic from HQ. Take two meltas instead, and a second one for the platoon's comm-sec. Take a grenade launcher over the flamer (if possible) for 1st Squad, the longer ranger firepower is more useful.

Aside from that: Storm Trooper veterans are a must if you plan on getting down and dirty with the foe.

well i'm trying to balance out Models and rules. Seeing as though i've already brought the Kreig model with flamer I may as well use it. having seen the Vanquisher i might as well get one. I love the model. I'm gonna use the HQ as a snipe unit i think so hence the lasscannon, but agreed i do need more meltas.

Well you could always try the GW stuff, but I'm willing to bet it'll be cheaper elsewhere, as usual.

Loving your stuff keep it up. I've decided to try doing my mud like yours, 'coz yours is so great.

I must say that sentinel pilot's head looks a little large. Also, maybe you could try giving future autocannon (etc) gunners a shoulder strap for their rifle. It looks like he'll lose it in the mud (And it will get all icky and stuff).

Oh and BTW, what is the diameter of the HW wheels? I'm looking to [attempt to]scratch build a few.

Well thanks for the comments. The wheels at the widest part are roughly 13 milimeters and the inside circle being rougly 11. The wheels are around 1 milimeter thick. Hope that helps i'm planning to maybe cast them.

@ metor. I'de like to get any barb wire anything at all, reguardless of cost. As for the heavy weapon gunner's lasgun, I really don't think he cares, his got one frikkin huge autocannon to shoot. Man what a rush you would get firing that thing!. As for the sentinel pilot's head, I like it big, it's kinda comical.

@ss_cherubael, i've discovered a really kool tool for making mud, as soon as i get more i'll show you all, But turst me this thing is mad as..

I've dug up some old pictures for a base tutorial I was planning so this is part 1, part 2 will follow when I paint some more.

Baseing tut part 1 - the making.

Step 1
Fresh Polyfilla, just slap it on, but make sure it's thick but thick if you get me.
http://i66.photobucket.com/albums/h252/amacdo/Death%20Korps/IMG_3239.jpg

Step 2
Place any objects you want on the base, stright away, this way they are submerged quite deep.
http://i66.photobucket.com/albums/h252/amacdo/Death%20Korps/IMG_3240.jpg
Step 3.
As soon as it starts to go hard at the thinest parts. Place figures and whatnot on the base. Now this is the important part. You need to shift earth so to speek. Low and raise parts that you want to be puddles and high parts. I can explain furher if you don't understand but this picture shows it fairly well.

http://i66.photobucket.com/albums/h252/amacdo/Death%20Korps/IMG_3245.jpg
Step 5.
Wait for the polyfilla to cake on the top completly. Then go crazy with toothpicks knifes anything and make a textured ground.
http://i66.photobucket.com/albums/h252/amacdo/Death%20Korps/IMG_3248.jpg

You can make barbed wire using mosquito netting, but it got the be the type when they've glued the threads together at the crossings. Simply take a sharp knife or scissors and cut along one single thread, the thread you are cutting along will be the wire, and the crossing threads you're cutting of will be the barbs. To get the real "barbed wire" feeling to it, you gotta spin it around itself.

This would probably work even better with some sort of metal mesh, the type used in filters or as reinforcement when you plaster dents on cars etc. Shouldnt be very difficult to get hold of.

I went to GW today to get a few things, i finnaly found some barb wire so i brought that and i was going to buy a Bassy or a 2nd chimera and saw that they were $65 each? WTF? have they always been that much at GW, i don't normally go there to buy my stuff but $65. Thats pushing it.

Now onto my next point. Tank Colour scheme? i've been looking around and can't really get a scheme i like. I was going to go plain green but i'd like to do some camo. I'm in love with your camo scheme sheep but unfortunatly i don't think it fits my army.

I'm using a bastardised version of SS Autumn Oakleaf A for the camo on my tanks, You may like to use the Spring/summer version. That is if you go for camo, may not be appropriate for your DKoK.

Yeah Tnks have been getting hideously expensive, $65 is the going rate.

They used to be called "landships" so maybe battleship grey, lots of weathering & rust effects to show the toxic environment, and some bright coloured chevrons on the front, ala 2nd ed, to break it up and give some visual interest.

Those are my ideas.

Hope they helped :D

BAH!

okm i apologize for the latness of the update. I had promised a basing tut but my dad locked the polyfilla in the shed and then New years so......

anyway i have it finished, well short of. Ok here we go.

Basing Tutorial part 2 - the painting.

Materials
- Scorched Brown paint
- Bestiel Brown paint
-Bleached bone paint
-Mud Mix(c) (see below)
- PVA glue
- GW Black Spray.

We have our newly constructed polyfilla bases. Now most bases poeple tend to drybrush, this just wont work because as i've found out, polyfilla tends to flake and chip when is repeatedly brushed. So to paint them you must water down your paints, this is not really a problem when painting mud. I just tend to dump the paint on and let gravity do it's work.

Step 1.
Spray Base Black

Step 2
Water down scorched brown and dump it on. Get it every where on the base. In all the nics and grannys. Wait for it do dry and proceed.
example.

Step 3.
Water down Bestiel Brown and load it on the base. the same way as step 2.
example in this bad photo.
http://i66.photobucket.com/albums/h252/amacdo/Death%20Korps/Basing%20TUT/IMG_3391.jpg

Step 4,
Mix bestiel brown and Bleached bone and water down but not as much as the previous steps, and apply onto the base all over the place. The point of this step is to just get some colour onto the raised parts of the base.
(sorry don't have any photos of this step. i accidently deleted them)

Step 5. Scorched brown wash.
Mix water and scorched brown about 20% paint /80% water and dump it on. This is to get a darker colour to the base. It should settle into the creivies and holes that u created.

Step 6
Mud Mix. One afternoon i was pretty bored haveing not homework, so i took a tile, polyfilla and paint and developed this method. But after looking on the internet at mud (i was really bored!) i realised i needed puddles. So i started experiment with PVA glue, it works ok, so i chucked PVA glue, yellow ink, Scorched brown paint, super glue i think and Desert yellow into a paint pot and created this mud mix that when painted on just like paint puddles and makes yellowy muddy puddles. THe majority of the mix is PVA but you can add colouring to it as u please.

http://i66.photobucket.com/albums/h252/amacdo/Death%20Korps/Basing%20TUT/IMG_3405.jpg

After the scorched brown wash just get an old brush and dunk it into the mud mix and brush over your base. Gravity should puddle it into the holes. It's very important that you make holes for this to pool in. See part 1.

awesome, very nice tutorial, though one question, in step 6 you said you added superglue to the mud mix, wouldn't the superglue just hardn, it tends to with water, thats an easy way of glueing togther metal figures actuially, put glue on one side, lick the other then press together, works a charm - provided you don't make any silly mistakes :D

all looks awesome btw, look forward to thursday, can we have a group shot then?

if, you were to go with the one with the platform right on top, you'd need to do some ladders etc. either way i like them, but for the really up high one you'd need to make it look like it hardly moved, otherwise it'll look like a double decker bus.

Yeah, thats sort of what i was going for, It's siege artillery that shells the enemy before the armour attacks. I think i might just go with the normal style but it's always fun to experiment.

Could you mount the floor/weapon lower? Level with the drive wheels, perhaps? A longer barrel, and larger breach block, would give it that siege gun feel. That, and having the crew on the ground surrounded by shells. I'm thinking along the lines of modern self propelled guns like the AS90 and M109.

AS for the models, I've almost finished the green on the trenchcoats. SO that will be finished tonight along with the Greys and probably the whethering. I havn't sprayed the arms to they will be armsless until Sunday or somthing as i like to paint arms speperate.

good question. Well lets see. I've brought 2 squads, plus Autocannons (3), heavy mortar and crew, Tamiya weapons set, Pigments (still coming), Tamiya whethring master set B, light earth wethering pen. spray primer, paint then thereis the 2 tanks i've brought so far plus plasticard. so i'd say around $450 Aus so far. Expect the figure to get alot higher as i start to lavish in FW goodies such as the krieg vanquisher, mmmmm must have one.

For a 16 year old thats alot of money, but i've got myself a holiday job so i'm rolling in the dogh.

I did pay for the majority of my Death korps with the sale of my last Army so of you might remeber the Cadian 33rd armour. So it really wasn't that expensive.

+edit+

Just read in White Dwafe that conflict Melbourne is on the 15th of April, it's 750 points so i must have 750 points done by then. At a squad a month i wont finish in time, i better pick up the pace.

His left arm is from the Grenade throwing sarg from the advancing squad and the right arm is from the Heavy mortar Crew.

I bassically spent all morning mixing and matching bit and peices. Everyone ended up with 2 arms that fitted and looked natural in the end but I need to scuplt a few hands as I used some firing arms.

I spent around an hour working on my heavy mortar crew heating bending, heating, bending. I've made it look like one of the crew is elevating the gun. I'll post pics when i've done more.

Here there is going to be a swamp like thingy
http://i66.photobucket.com/albums/h252/amacdo/Death%20Korps/IMG_3691.jpg

The troop at the back is going to be hauling shells, the commander at the front is obviously directing and the middle troop is going to be working the wheel.

Comments appreciated.

Looks really good, my only critisims is that the las guns need to be at more of an angle, they couldn't stay in that position.

i actually tested the las guns to see if they stayed like that and i got them to stand like that on there own, whether they were in that position or angle i can't remember. But i'll change them

Great center piece! I was going to pass on the heavy mortar just because of all the rules lawyers I play with, but after seeing yours and LotE's, I may be sold. :)

I want to do a similar thing that you did for your basilisk drive wheels to my hell hound when i get it. It looks amazing with the tracks and wheel on the outside.
Can anybody help me by directing me to a tutorial on how to make them like that or help me directly by telling me how to do it. I would be well chuffed if anybody could? :D

Still learning
20-01-2007, 23:50
Thanks for comments everybody.

@Stagler, it's rather easy but there are a few hard parts. You take the two outside parts to the Chimera, the walls in which you place the wheels between. SHave them down to they stick together. Then place the large back wheel (drive spocket) where you want, i mounted it on 2 strips of plasticard to make it sit in line with the bottom wheels. Then places the smaller wheels (return rollers) on the bottom and you have your suspension system. You may need to heat the tracks in hot water and bend them to how you want.

ok, been awile since update, i havn't really done alot on the figures, as i'm getting into the part of the project where i'm not really motivated to do alot.

But i have painted the back packs for my next squad, them along with the bayonets were really the only thing i felt like painting.

ok, looking a Deadleys new base for his DK and some images of no- man's land on the internet. I've decided to redo all the bases of my army. I'm not really happy with just having plain wet mud and want a more dry earthy look with abit of grass and Barb wire on every base. i'll try get pics when i get a few.

Voronwe[MQ]
03-02-2007, 14:43
Good luck on the bases. Let's say that's a 52cm artillery shell (in real life - it's diameter should be about it), meaning you'd need a 52cm artillery piece. First of all you've got to find a pipe or tube which are as exact to it as it gets, then you should make the firing pipe long enough for a long distance artillery piece to bombard towns, cities, camps and the like behind enemy lines. After this, you'll need a chassis...

nah, seeing Deadley has put mine to shame. The plain wet mud is abit on the plain side of things. I'll get some pics up today to show u the new ones.

Ok just spent the last day of my school hols painting the bases of 5 troops. They turned out ok. I've also done around 70% of the next 3 troops from advancing squad so i'll get them finished soon.
sorry about the blurry photoes, i'll get better ones.

what was that last step for the mud bases? And do they need to be made of pollyfiller or will wood filler work?:confused:

Still learning
05-02-2007, 08:21
I used polyfilla again, ( I like it, you can tell!) I just did alot thicker and lumpier mix this time and poked more holes in it. I doubt wood filla will work, where ever you can get woodfiller you can get polyfilla. Trust me, I work in a hardware store.

Oh yeah I completley forgot, the last step is to just drop a bit of PVA in the holes to make them look as though they are filled with water.

i'm going to dull down the radiocative green to a sort of blended green/yellow. it's going to be a swamp with reeds. I think the base will have scattered foliage here and there with lots of puddles.

The green puddle things are actually quite realistic. If a puddle is left for long enough it will grow all sorts of small plants and stuff that will turn it green. I've seen plenty of them.

I've come so late to this thread, as usual.

This is reminding me of why I love the hobby and why I haven't done anything to do with it in so long: there's some great scope for modelling cool stuff, and at the same time such a price to pay for it...

Who knows, when the wife's a teacher maybe the second part will become a dead issue.
