I wanted to make something up quick so I grabbed a tele homer and went to work.
Use an old cheap brush and dab it on the base. It's pretty simple just move it around till you like the look.
Next I painted it a darker grey.Then washed it with black to get the nooks and cranny's. Next I dry brush with a mid then light grey.
But if you want them to go further you can add some more and skip buying some resin bases.
An added bonus is its sticky nature. You can glue items on to make the base look that much cool. Just take some old extra bits or cut some new ones and add them to the base..
You can also add some plastic card + bits + texture paint to make it go even farther..

The First LAS guy I went with the kneeling legs and wanted to make him have a little something extra. I took an arm and sword from one of the old SW kits and chopped it so it looks like he's resting his hand on it while waiting for a tank to get into range. Normally the left hand is attached to the LAS so I chopped that off and used the brace I had cut from the RZB, I need to GS it and straighten the back of the brace.
I'm a Rocket Man..
Have a Great Weekend All,..

When the new Prism Kit came out I picked up two of them. I don't really know why I did but I wanted a Night Spinner and figured I should have a new Prism I suppose. I magnetized both of them so they can be either or and when I'm just running this guy I'll throw both of the Prism barrels on there to look more menicing haha.. The Prism has red front panels and the Spinner has purple. I mentioned this in an older post but here you can see it better. Still deceiding on the Falcon color.
They very rarely see any action these days. In a competative list they aren't worth the Heavy Slot nor the Points (though the spinner is pretty cheap). The higher BS is completely wasted on the Prism's Blast Weapon in my opinion and I'm not going to take two of them to be fully useful. The Spinner is a fun tank and I do like to use it in fun builds because it's annoying haha.. Slowing down an army and watching it kill itself is AWESOME!
And the Spinner ..

“We are the Emperor’s Red Right Arm, we are his truth, his vengeance.”Last night I finished up the Dusk Wolf Speeder I have been working on. Now that I had the icons on it I needed to finish up the final details. I freehanded the number on it and then blended it and the icons in. I touched up the metals and added some more rust like looks. I needed to finish the guys inside and some of the cockpit. I added some details to the bottom of the speeder but wasn't going to go overboard, it's mainly going to be flying upright hopefully. 8) .. The next speeder I will be painting the interior and guys before putting it together. But, this was just the test for the rest of the vehicles. I'm almost done the Diemos as well and then it's time to move onto the Razorbacks and Land Raider. Not to mention all the guys, I'm going through bits and picking them out .. I was hoping to get a few together last night but had to do some table cleaning .. it wa getting out of hand. 8)
