Hey very cool, working on my Mini's right now. Question though: did you do for the gravel effect for the bases? I always want to base my mini's but I can't ever get them to look how I want them. Thanks!

Great work. Really consistent colour coding and professional looking bases.

For the bases I used a stone coloured gravel. I drybrushed it light stone colour and then put a dark wash over it. It was fairly minimal effort.

You could use sand, but you would have to paint it then...

Something like this from Army Painter would look good and is so dark you probably dont need to wash it:



This the Army Painter Black Battleground basing

Ah, fantastic. Thank you. I don't really like using sand as it seems to get everywhere and doesn't stick to the base the best IMO.

Use wood glue and dont water it down. Then gloss varnish once you have drybrushed it lighter. It will be bomb proof

did you varnish Ornstein and Smough, looks like they lost their shine.

to overcome this I generally do one or two coats of a sealer then a varnish when I want to maintain the metallic shine.

On my blog you can see a photo of O&S taken with flash to show they are still a bright gold. They are not shiny and I did not want them to be.

They have been treated the same way as all the other models; a coat of gloss varnish painted on and then a spray of matt varnish.

I could have left them gloss, yes, but they would (imo) look out of place with the other models. I rarely leave a model with gloss; I dont find the light displacement that results pleasing to look at. Personal taste.

WOW! That's probably the best set I've seen so far! Pretty close to the video game too! I would love to paint mine, but I shake like a crackhead and would ruin mine. \[T]/

Thank you for the compliment!

I intended to stay fairly true to the video game but made some adjustments to the scheme where I thought it looked better on a model (for example, the brown cloaks of the Silver Knights looked fairly boring in paint).

I am a huge fan of the video game and mostly backed this project to paint the models.
