Display base for my Dreadnought....
Hi guys, well I've completed the display base for my newly painted Venerable Dreadnought and I'm really happy with how it turned out.
Its the first time I attempted something like this and hopefully it will stand me in good stead when I up size to something larger like a tile maybe.
Anyhow guys here's a few pics with brief explanations as to how I built it, as always click pics for enlargement.
I then cut out a slightly smaller piece of plastic card and glued it to the base with PVA.
I stuck various bits of interest to the base, half a Rhino door (the other half's on the Dread base), a piece of resin I kept from a FW model and a skeleton.
I added sand and small rocks stuck down with PVA.
The martian trees were made by twisting a couple of paperclips together to the required shape then I rolled out a few green stuff sausages and squeezed them around the wire and pricked them with a tooth pick for texture.
After it had set I rolled out tinner strings of green stuff and wrapped it round each branch to add further interest.
I used a length of tape to force a curve while it dried.
Just like the icon's on my other Scythes models I made my own water slide transfer for the plaque, I'm happy with how it turned out.
