Here’s a little story all about how, I made a snow covered flying base for the Lil’ Mek, but alas did not become the prince of a town called Bel Aire. Good lord, that was silly. This was a really fun base to make, and I got to try out a couple different techniques I was itching to try. You might notice as the photos progress that I covered a lot of detail with snow. I forgot that Curtis’ army is all based in a winter wonderland, mainly because his wife lets him use the dining table as long as his terrain can double as Santa’s Village.
So you can see here, first I chose the basic layout, and then put down some “concrete sidewalk” in the form of thin sheet cork.
Then I used a few different greys and a light blue-grey and did some drybrushing.
Next I added some nice wet mud, and started the patina on the brass light pole. I really didn’t like the patina at this point, and took to Twitter and someone gave me the idea to add a green wash…
Hope you guys enjoyed it! Until next time, I remain The Big Mek.
