Hobby Corner

Ok, here is the other topic idea I wanted to throw out. Here is a spot to ask for hobby help or ideas. Again I'll start this off.

A few have asked how I do my snow bases. So here is the recipe......woodland scenic snow flock mixed with pva white glue to a toothpaste like consistency. Apply to the base and then immediately redip into fresh snow flock. Gives a really good result and is very simple.

I've also started off with swamp basing for my Skaven. I first glue down a small jagged piece of cork board leaving room for the "swamp water". I then take very small balls of green stuff and glue them on the "swamp water area" to look like gas bubbles. Once this is done I cover the area with white pva. Once dry I paint the swamp area with desert yellow, let dry, wash with either green or purple wash, let dry, paint with 'ardcoat varnish. Gives a great result but is a bit time consuming.

Yep! Pics!

Maybe we should have a sub forum for this. People can post questions or little step by steps?

Carson I made a coupel new sub forums, is that the kind of thingy you were after? I thought it might make it easier for people to find stuff they were looking for if we started posting suff there.
