Guess what just arrived from Poland!
I have no experience with basing. None. Zilch. Nada. I don't know why it doesn't appeal to me (honestly, I think it just intimidates me), but I'm told the best way to get started is to, well, get started! That being said, I finally gave in and bought some Micro Art Studio bases that I've been coveting for months. I really appreciate the fine detail in these! I can't wait to start using these for my gaming miniatures.
While I intend on creating my own display bases in the future, I think this is a great place to begin. I'll start by pinning miniatures to the pre-cast bases that I'll paint, and in time, graduate to crafting my own bases. This weekend I bought some Milliput, Loctite glue, and a mini pin vise:
That reminds me, I need to go collect some twigs & bark from outside. Soon I'll source some faux-grass tufts for texture. I think that'll be a great start-- when I'm ready, I'll have a great stock of things to choose from! I've made big improvements in my painting, now I need to dive into basing. Ripping off the bandaid...
