Another 1/35 dio base
« on: October 03, 2019, 01:01:04 pm »
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.
