I’ve done a lot of research on the Internet on basing, paint, modeling, etc. Here are some links to some great resources on these subjects:
- Tom’s Boring Mordheim Blog has lots of great tips and tricks for painting, as he is an amazing painter and artist.
- Games Workshop tutorial on Painting Models.
- Brushthralls’ Old Basing tutorial. (They have a new modeling tutorials here.)
- (I also got lots of ideas from Tom’s Boring Mordheim Forum and Witchhunter.net.)
My new Mordheim Warbands have officially been started.
Currently, Skaven is my favorite warband, so I decided to start the learning curve with some Orc Models I got from a Warhammer Box Set I got off of ebay. I have too many of each of these models, so if I end up destroying them, I’ll survive. This way I can perfect my basing/painting styles before starting into my Skaven warband.
With that said, I based these models with a layer of PVA glue and a layer of sand. I added a rock or a wooden plank to each base before putting the layer of sand (so they look like they are stuck in the sand.
I removed the two models from their frames and used a razor blade to smooth out the seams. I glued on their heads and glued them to their bases with a helping of rubber cement (for plastic models).
Then, after a base coat of black paint:
Now I need to come up with a good color scheme. I think I’m going to use Orange as a warpaint color.
