Another 1/35 dio base
« on: October 04, 2019, 04:02:20 AM »
Took a break from the cherry blossom dio base. I started yet another base but not sure what is going on this one just yet. This is the Alliance Model Works Small European Ruin base.

I already have a few different bases with cobblestones on them so decided to do this one a little different.  I dabbed on some Vallejo mud over the cobblestones and while still wet, I dabbed on some MiG sand pigment so the pigment sticks to the mud and dries the sand color. I did a little section by section so the mud didn't dry too quickly for the sand pigment to stick.








Here is the dio base completed. I really hate doing the rubble, so many different things to paint. Even though the rubble was covered in a layer of sand and dirt pigments, you still see the different colors of the rubble so a lot of painstakingly detail painting is required.

Meng 1/35 ZU-23-2 AA gun added. The gun still needs painting. I also added some grass patches. Sort of going to be a Syrian regime scene, it might not be 100% accurate but I am known for that hahaha! I will also add some Russian advisor figures and a Syrian government alliance figure but not sure which ones just yet.

Finally finished this dio base. The figures are supposed to be DEVGRU. The two on the left were finished a couple weeks ago but the third one on the right was just finished today.

Very nice! Your pigmented Vallejo mud effect is excellent  :smiley:

Also good to see that SEAL Team Six is practicing social distancing and wearing face masks  ;D

Thank you! Yes, they are wearing PPE masks and practicing social distancing. Not quite 6 feet apart though.

1.5m in Australia, so they're doing fine by us! ;)

Fantastic base, Ramba! The figures are great, too! Really very well done! :icon_alabanza: :icon_alabanza:

Thank you! The camo decals make getting the figures done so much easier. I have a lot of 1/35 figures in the stash begging to get done and hope I have enough camo decals to do them all. I need more dio bases to pose the figures on. I will have to have to scratch build some.
