    Nice, I always love your basework. How did you accomplish these bases?

    thanks scott :)
    it was grey pumice by vallejo (the medium grade stuff) with pale sand (vallejo) mixed in.

    then a wash of an slightly brown orange, follwed by charred brown (very similar to scorched brown)
    finished with a dry brush of ivory.

    the grass is siflor with a cobra brown wash (similar to snakebite)
    then a dry brush of khaki, followed by a very light dry brush of ivory.

    hope that helps.

    THREADJACK!

    What do you guys use to glue your silfor onto the bases? I pickep up some Zap-a-goo but it leaves a really crappy looking sheen, superglue doesn\'t work, white/PVA glue takes to long and doesn\'t work unless the surface is very level. I give up!

    @scott, you don\'t need to glue siflor mate, it has a sticky adhesive already on it, just pluck off the shhet with tweezrs and push into place. ( iw ould laugh but i used to use super glue to put it in place :redface: )

    Hmm, I am usually putting mine on heavily textured sand covered bases and I get NO adhesion from mine. Still, I\'ll give it another go! TY

    Ah man, they\'re awesome! In the UK I think Antenocetti\'s workshop is the place to get it. I got no linky tech for you, as my distributor is from the states.

    Really top notch product Starchaser. Maker sure you buy the longest stuff available (6mm tufts I think) as the other stuff is fine at 15mm and so but not worth the extra cost vs. traditional static grass at 28mm IMO.

    Post some mini\'s dude!

    edit- Damn your quick Chris!

    that company is shite.
    they cut the pieces smaller so as to make more profit and package them badly so that they get crushed in the post.

    that\'s why loads of us pestered jed (antenocitie) until he started to stock them.

    Great stuff.
    Nice colours and atmosphere to these paintjobs. A really nice and inspireing alternative to all the Fantasy and SF stuff we usually paint. I too really love the bases.

    Thanks for sharing.

    For rank and file guys they are terrific. The bases look great as well.
