quick tut on my basing style.

take a normal base.
ben's basing style P1000222

cover with pva glue, be rather generous
ben's basing style P1000223

cut up old spurs, balsa wood anything! even old broken bases works fine
ben's basing style P1000224

place them randomly onto ur base and dont worry if the glue gets a bit
messy
ben's basing style P1000225

for the next part u will need some form of sand.
ben's basing style P1000226
modeling sand will work fine but i personal prefer the random ruff look of
normal garden sand. (i recently put sand over my lawn and there is a nice
patch were it was dumped up the back) dirt and sticks add effect!

place model in sand
ben's basing style P1000227

gently sprinkle over it so its almost berried in sand, then blow away excess
sand and dirt, do not tap sand off as glue has not set and the whole lot is
likely to fall off or move in away u dont want.
ben's basing style P1000247


also gently wipe ur finger around edge to get rid of any unwanted dirt sand
and glue.
ben's basing style P1000249

spray ur bases black as a base coat after pva glue has dryed
ben's basing style P1000252

once dryed ur ready to start dry brushing
ben's basing style P1000256

i use P3 paints as well as citadel so the names vary, i start with greycoat
grey (very dark grey) followed by troll blod highlight
(Kommando Khaki Paint)
ben's basing style P1000258

finaly under belly blue as a last highlight (Space Wolves Grey Paint)
ben's basing style P1000259

then to clean up i paint the edges black
ben's basing style P1000260

and there u have my awesome looking mordheim bases
