This is a thread for discussing our latest WargamerAU article: a detailed look at advanced basing techniques, by Luke Yates (Disco Volante). Luke's used a Warhammer Fantasy Ogre army for his tutorial, but these tips can be used on any figure bases or terrain. If you apply the tutorial to your own figures, post some photos in the Painting and Modelling area to show off your handiwork!

You can find the full article on our front page, or via this link: Basing tutorial: Warhammer Fantasy Ogres.

What's the crushed glass like to work with? I've been tempted to try some but not sure how it goes. Any special PPE required? Mask/gloves/eye protection etc?

You know what? I give up, this is like playing chess with pidgeon. I'm going to leave while I still have enough brain cells to make the decision.

Do you seal the acrylic prior to using the oils?

Nope, it says that in there.

It's amazing mate,best find of the year for me!

I just breath slowly when using it, but yeah always wear gloves and goggles - id recommend a mask too, but it's not too different to some other hobby stuff (dangerous when you're not careful)

Hehehe.

All good mate - it's a reasonable question, I didn't seal it on purpose so that it would react a little more randomly with the basecoats. I didn't want to make it too neat and clean, I wanted a bit of ugliness. It work out well I reckon - I can't wait to do something similar on another army!

Nice article as usual mate, but honestly cannot stress enough how much you want to be using a proper mask for that glass. Silicon material in the lungs is not good for you in the least. Melt's your lungs among other things.

Hell in this hobby going up to bunnings and grabbing a decent $30 one is probably the best investment you can make given all the fine particulates we work with.

One of these days I'm going to get my hands on a potato as big as your head and hit you with it dry.gif

Wow mate, they are some fantastic bases. Great job!

Can you give us a bit more detail about the crushed glass? I.e. did you just dribble it onto PVA glue, or did you pre-mix it with the pva glue and some paint, etc?

Thanks so much mate - very greatly appreciated. Over all, it didn't take too long at all...

As for the crushed glass, you want the Secret Weapon Crushed Glass and their Realistic Water. It's NOT PVA, it's this realistic water stuff. I did some experiments with it on my FB page (see link!) to see what effects I could get, it's great stuff! I always keep a few sets spare, just in case.

Any more questions, please do let me know biggrin.gif
