Basing Allmoge Soldiers

Here are a short un throug about how I base my minis for my Kalmar Union War project

Base Sizes:

Infantry: 3 minis on a 40x40mm plan to use 6 of them in 2 ranks for a average Hail Ceasar Unit, i.e work for Impetus to as the frontage will be 120mm.

Cavalry and Commanders: 2 mounted or 1 mounted and 2 flag bearers on a 40x50mm base.

Artillery: ...havent decided yet as I havent painted any one up... might have to use a wider base I will probably go for 60mm.

Basing:

Here are 3 minis from Perry, Claymore Castings and a Perry glued to a 40x40mm base.


I paint the whole base with a mix of cheap brown paint, PVA-glue and water...


And dip it in my Sand mix. The Sand are a mix from several manufacturer mainly Games Workshop and Zitterdes.


Here I have applyed some green Games Workshop flock using PVA-glue.


I use to paint some of the larger stones with Gray colour to get a little more contrastes in the base, this time I used a Vallejo Model Color, Medium Sea Grey #158.


Now I have added some green Foilage (Woodland Scenics) and Tufts (Army Painter) and then I soaed the whole base with Scenic Cement (Woodland Scenics) to seal it all.


Pictures of the finished base then the Scenic Cement have dryed...

  2. Looks very effective. I've not seen "Scenic Cement" before, is it a kind of varnish or sealant?
