    Man, I’m sure I’m not alone, when I say that I wish I could hang out with you while you work, just so I could try to absorb some of your awesomeness!

    This thing looks amazing!

    @DaBeebs pretty sure that would be an underwhelming experience for you! Best tip I can give is...and you’ve probably heard it from a million people but thin paint is the key. So thin that you question it. I remember being told about the milk consistency and not being able to understand how that worked. Over an airbrush basecoat though that milk consistency is perfect and mixed purely with glaze medium gives you the opportunity the adjust the density of colour endlessly.

    Hairster, so awesome to see more and more of this purple monster revealed
    And thanks for reminding all of us once again to have patience... I get frustrated when I thin my paint so much and then it looks like it has no effect

    Now that is a root with personality! Reminds me of that caterpillar from Alice in Wonderland somehow.

    Are you using real moss in there? What is that stuff?

    Dayum hairster...... that base is sensational!!! I really love it. Your basing work is always incredible, but this bad boy really takes the cake. Bloody fantastic.

    Root was dug up from a dead plant in my garden and cut down to fit, bedded it in.
    added a layer of AK muddy ground in and around it.
    Mounted up the slate with glue and milliput.
    Stained the rout with mix of Vallejo inks (green, dark green) and AP strong tone
    Added more mossy depth with AK slimy grime dark and light enamels
    Mossy bits are 2mm moss pads from gamer grass stuffed into the cracks and gaps - often cut these up into smaller bits
    Theres some random leafy vine stuff that comes on a fibre web made by 4ground - lush hues leaf foliage
    Then paper plants by Model Scene/Greenline

    The Base is as beautiful as the mini, this will be an epic display for sure.

    And I thought I don't throw out much

    The base looks awesome, can't wait to see the purple monster on top of it.

    That is a smashing base! Great idea to hoard stuff you pull up from the garden!
