So last night I just wasn't in the mood for painting so after giving our new house site a check as I do a couple of times a week to see how the build slowly progresses I decided that I'd do some basing and work out a final scheme that I can carry out across my whole army.
The unit bases come from battle kiwi and were custom sized for me. Oliver the owner of Battle kiwi is quick to respond to messages of Facebook and email and the pricing is excellent. If you are looking for movement trays, bases or tokens or some scenery check out Battle kiwi. Www.battlekiwi.com.
Now into the unit trays. I assembled the tray with a bit of superglue (I was too impatient to wait for PVA to dry. Have it a spray of black paint and then applied my base goop as I've come to call it. As soon as that was dry I applied my static grass mixture.
My bases were done the same way but after the static grass went down I applied some Army Painter lowland tufts and some flower tufts to make it look like my Romans are walking through some ancient grassy paddocks. I like how they have turned out and think the whole army done the same way should look pretty good on the table. The plan for the rest of the weeks painting is to do up 6 more exactly the same to cover all the units I've currently painted as well as trying to finish off a couple more Italian units.
