Carved it even more lol. Now its on the base also did some more "damage" on the top to make it look rougher, now im just washing it with black paint, second coat coming. Also made the bubbles with green stuff. Also pva glue and Varnish were put over all the black flat surface areas. Also i should note that i spray painted the gak out of it with cheap grey spray paint ( to try and keep the fragile foam nice and firm ). Then coated it in varnish. It's still wet at the moment from the first wash out of about 3, except some of the side areas.

EDIT - THATS JUST CHEAP 2 DOLLER ORANGE PAINT THAT COMES IN A HUGE BOTTLE YOU SEE IN THE BACKGROUND, DONT PANIC!!!.

IM a bit freaked out about how im going to do the lava, its been occupying mind for a few days and i cant figure out how to do it, but i have an idea now and hopefully it works....


Edit - That marine in the picture is just inspecting progress to make sure every thing looks great. I told him to feth off a long time ago, but he doesn't want to hear it.

fethed base up, had to scrap all varnish and pva glue and green stuff off and then peel the rock off because for some reason the lava i was painting started sepereating and acting all wierd and making the dry pva glue wet again causing a big mess, so had to start that part again, at least now i can do bubbles right...Now i just have to wait like 2 days for it to dry.......

Why has it taken me so long to get to this point?


Because it took like 3 days to dry and ran out of red paint, and i almost decided to throw this one away beause even after the 3 days or so of drying, after me paitning the first few layers of paint it started tearing again and making the pva glue wet again, so honestly to get to this point where i am now has been a real pain in the ass. Also was not happy with the high lighting i did on the rock and also think i stuffed the bubbles up so all this has taken heaps of time. Never paint over PVA GLUE in my opinion people...


Almost finished, just going to add smoe brighter yellows, then clean up base and see how it looks.

Ok, so this is how i wanted the base to look or closer to how i wanted it when i posted this model for the painting competition on DAKKA. Also these pictures dont have a very bright camera flash ruining it making it look how it would never look in real life. So this is what i would have preferred to enter the competition with but its too late.
So this is completely finished now im very proud of it.


Thank you all 200% for all your awesomeness you hold within your selves Dakka users.

Some better pictures showing more angels i just took of GUO on the new base, with the heldrakes. You can also see the two completely different types of lava i have done. I never gloss varnished the heldrakes lava, but i think i might do that so it brightens up. Also i have blended the red on the drakes spines more since i last had posted them on my other blog.

I am re doing and removing all trim / ware on tanks, and instead of just very thin lines on the edges using the very edge of brush, i have done fatter lines that i directly brush on with the tip of brush and am going around every thing with it not just sharp edges. Here is just a small picture showing the 1 tank i have almost finished doing this method with. So its metallic steel trim over a black tank.

You know, if there's one thing I've learnt from being in the Army, it's never ignore a pooh-pooh. I knew a Major who got pooh-poohed, made the mistake of ignoring the pooh-pooh. He pooh-poohed it! Fatal error! 'Cause it turned out all along that the soldier who pooh-poohed him had been pooh-poohing a lot of other officers who pooh-poohed their pooh-poohs. In the end, we had to disband the regiment.
