John here with another update on my Dire Avengers Shrine: The Sable Helm. Now if you haven't read the earlier post go see read it HERE. So today's update is all about the bases and showing off the colour scheme on a model. So lets get started.
For this project I started off with 15 fleshly stripped, 25mm bases. Basically the ones that came with the models. I also had a sheet of cork tiling, broken into roughly stone shapes. PVA glue and some brown paint. The corking, pva glue and paint all came from a dollar store (costing less than $5) and I have enough supplies now for my entire army.
As far as basing goes it's pretty straight forward:
1. Pick pieces of cork for the bases.
2. Stick them on the base with PVA glue.
3. Once dried, paint them brown.
4. Finished....for now.
There are the basic bases. All I need to do is finish them and stick the Dire Avengers on. As you may of noticed some are designed with a gap in the middle. These were purely built for the 2nd edition metal Avengers. The idea being I can use the tabs for extra support! I feel they work well. Just need to put some filler in to smooth them out.
