How to build the bases for my tyranids

I finally managed to write down the recipe for my bases. Most of the colors i use are Vallejo colors. The washes used are from games workshop.  The pigments are from Secret weapon miniatures.

At the beginning i normally apply the base color for the rock and the sand. Next i spray the sandy areas. After that i apply the washes to sand and rocks. The last painting steps are dry brushing  the rocks and the sand. Last is applying the pigments and the vegetation

Color list:

  • Dwarf skin
  • Heavy Siena
  • Abbadon Black
  • Cadmium skin
  • Pale flesh
  • Bonewhite
  • Ivory White
  • Dead white
  • Charadon granite
  • Heavy Bluegrey
  • Grey green
  • Flat earth
  • Yellow oliv

Wolf Guard reinforcements

Today i can show you my two newest additions to my wolf guards. With them the wolf guard is now 10 men strong including arjac rockfist. Reaching ten men strong makes it possible to fit two cyclone missile launchers ( from Anvil Industries) on my terminators.  The bases were made with the same process as all of my bases. So nothing new there. So theres only to wish you fun with the pictures !

Heute kann ich euch zwei Neuzugänge für die Wolfsgarde vorstellen. Damit ist die Wolfsgarde auf eine größe von 10 Mann, inklusive Arjac Felsenfaust, angewachsen. Dies ermöglicht es mir auch, die zwei abgebildeten Cyclone Launcher von Anvil Industries zu verwenden. Die Bases sind nach dem vor ein paar Wochen vorgestellten Verfahren angefertigt worden. Dann bleibt mir noch euch viel Spaß mit den Bildern zu wünschen !
