Khador #2: The bases

A while back, when I ordered my desert bases for my Skorne, I also ordered forest bases. It saved me on transport costs and I had possible use for them with Ret or Circle, so why not.

When I decided to start a Khador force, I contemplated my options for bases and I just couldn’t find ice or winter bases I liked. Then I realized I could just add snow to the forest bases and it all made sense.

I applied a coating of GW castellan green with the airbrush on the entire base, then I painted the tree stumps and branches using GW Dryad Bark and P3 Rucksack Tan for the interior. The entire surface was then washed with GW Agrax Earthshade.

I then coated the areas who would end up covered in snow with Vallejo Dead White.

I had a few boxes of the GW snow flock sitting around. I first tried applying it like normal flock (watered down pva glue and add flock on top) but that didn’t turn out right at all.

I then found a vid on youtube showing how to mix pva glue, water and the flock on a palette before applying it to the base. This way you can add a thicker paste to the base, which is far better to work with and instantly shows better results.

I looked at the dried result this morning and I did add another layers of snow using the same method. I hope I can add the jacks to their bases tonight.
