Hat 8073 Russian Light Infantry - Based

Not really something new now, but I just wanted to show you what I did with this set. I was looking for a way to store all the loose figures I paint, so I decided to base them. They are not ment for wargaming but it looked nice this way.

I used MDF 4 mm from 3 x 6 cm. To cover the ground I made a mixture of woodfiller and sand. Painted with dark brown and the grass is from Games Workshop.

As you can see on the pictures I made a mistake. You can still see some of the bases, so I need to fix that a little bit. The sides of the bases are painted green as I will do for all the Napoleonic figures I will paint of that period. I've also painted four more figures.

Comments and advice for the next bunch are welcome.





The unbased figures can be seen here.

  1. Only thing I would do is lightly drybrush the base lightly, you probably have but it didn't show up in the picture!

  11. You always do nice work Peter and these look great grouped together. Doing bases is something I know very little about, but am going to have learn sooner or later.
