#DreadTober - Dark Angels - Ravenwing Attack Bikes, bikes and Primaris Chaplain - All your base - BIG BUILD TO DONE!

Afternoon #WarHamFam and #WarhammerCommunity it's still the third of DreadTober and  my Ravenwing need Red Planet BASE! I know my Death Guard are all tar based but there is still some Ferron Proxima red stone. My Armies on Parade board would have benefitted forms some transitional pieces with tar on the red but time escapes me.

These had been quite a daunting prospect - plain 70mm MDF bases needing to look similar to my various debris strewn biker bases.

One lesson I learned after putting my sand mix on the base on the right below was to add some tile adhesive grout to the flat areas on the one on the left and one above. Just a mound to break up the flatness that made it painfully obvious it was an MDF base. The two bits of rusty debris [made from a broken up plastic dryer ball] helped disguise the flatness to the right one in the end. I also tried really hard with Dirty Down Rust on those two pieces of debris, following Peachy's advice. I gave the pot such a shake, holding it up to the light so I could see no unmixed paint at the bottom - laid it onto a Vallejo Game Effects Dry Rust base and then heated with a hobby heat gun - still no rust! I'll get there eventually, silver base next time. This was weathering powder and Vallejo Model Wash again.

Primaris Chaplain base too.

And the lone biker.

I also did the bases for my Adeptus Titanicus Cerastus Lancer, a Tyranid Zoanthrope and most of the other 5 bike bases. However, they have a lot more debris and detailing on that I couldn't find the time to tackle before AoP. So, for now I just get a Great Big Big Build BASE RUSTY Stamp of Approval.
