Basing tutorial: Quick and easy

Yesterday was a flurry of activity. After attending a tournament at the Chimera, which I was happy to have won :) I went home and scrubbed the Inquisitor Coteaz I had sitting in some simple green. Here's a little quickie on creating a simple base for your characters.

First I started simple with a small piece of cork glued to a base.

Second I placed Coteaz on a square of tiled plasticard and traced the footprint of the model.

I then clipped away at the edges to create a more grim and dark feel. In the far future, everything is broken.

Lastly, fill in the blanks. Some dried soil, super glue, and a couple skulls form secret weapon. 

:(see top picture):

I finished the golden man around midnight but lacked the steam to photograph him. Once the sun goes down tonight I'll snap some pictures. 


  1. Nice work. "In the far future, everything is broken" made me laugh.

  2. Hah, sometimes I can't hold back :) Thanks for checking it out Ron.
