At last I've started the Thracian Army for my Peloponnesian Wars campaign. All the command bases are 60mm frontage by 80mm deep to give me a chance to add a bit of character to the base.
|Thracian general 'out on a jolly'.|
Visual guide to basing Thracian command vignette:
|sandless pollyfilla smoothed onto the base.|
|Slate shards superglued on, the standing figure has been pinned to the slate. A hole was drilled through the slate.|
|sawdust and 2 grades of small rocks are PVA glued on.|
|Slate is very easy to work with and very easy to drill.|
|I thought about having the warrior in the green cloak stand on top of the rock, but half way up seems to have a more subtle effect.|
|sawdust added to the top of the rock. This will be painted a grass colour.|
|figures manufactured by Wargames Foundry|
|and painted by me at email@example.com|
|Not sure about the Thracian Army standard colour, I might repaint it red, black & white.|
|Glue dried ready for the next stage: Painting the base.|
Finally testors dullcote matt varnish was sprayed over the whole vignette.
|The slate was repainted in part in enamels where necessary|
Oh and of course I've added grass tufts and a few flowering weeds which I produce, available through firstname.lastname@example.org
Anyhow, Cheers for now, Peter.
