Project Lead Mountain 4th June 2016 Part 1
As part of my ongoing effort to clear out my unpainted metal which I have called "Project Lead Mountain" I am also working through my original figures and putting them on new bases.
When I first started gaming properly back in the 1980 we were very simplistic in what we considered was a suitable for us to finish off the basing of our figures.
Here is an example of this basing style, one of many adopted by people back then. It consisted of some card or plastic sheeting cut to the right size, covered in PVA glue and dipped in Railway Flocking or Static Grass. By todays standards it is very crude and visually unappealing.
So moving onto to the 21st C and the advent of Vallejo Texture Paste produced in a range of pre-mixed colours, even cheaper acrylic paints and fine gauge static grass used by railway modellers and the basing world has been turned on its head. All of my figures are generally 15mm scale.
