Techniques

Since this mini was done rather quickly, I performed a lot of shortcuts. I basecoated using the midtone colors. That way, I could glaze in the shadows, and then add two or three rounds of highlights. This works much quicker than highlighting from shadow color, though I feel it's less precise. It tends to look a bit sloppier, in my opinion. So, I utilized glazes - which are just more precise washes - to shade and highlight basecoats.

Basing

Personal logo Editor in Chief Bill The Editor of TMP Fezian specifically asked for a "dungeon base" on this guy. So, I set out sculpting my first base ever. It was a good experience, and I realized a lot about working with greenstuff. I used sculpting tools from a kit that Sculptor Gene Van Horne had given me. I applied a layer of greenstuff, and worked on getting it as smooth as possible. Then I started cutting segments to make it look tiled. I was very satisfied with the way it came out.

I painted the base in black, and then drybrushed different colors over it to give it some texture. I applied RMS Stone Grey, RMS Shadowed Steel, RMS Midnight Blue, and RMS Snow Shadow. I did several applications of each color until I was happy with the results.
