I finally found some time to base up those old fantasy figures I have been dabbling with lately.
The two Dwarf bases were done the traditional way, painting PVA inbetween the figures than dipping the base in sand. Painted with Foundry's sand a, b and c from their paint range.
The Goblins, due to their crowded base were just dipped in static grass after the PVA treatment. Grass tufts and stones were then added to bring a bit of further detail to the base. This is the way I normally work, just by using the static grass with extra colours of static grass added for contrast. Silflor grass tufts are excellent for adding character. I'm not really one for spending too long on my bases and always tend to take the quickest option. The sandy Dwarf bases are my exception because the figures took a little longer to paint. I am just a lazy baser I have come to realize to my shame.
