    It’s all been a bit Cold-Warry on my blog just lately, so thought I’d stick up some recently-painted Wellingtonics by way of an antidote…

    Very nice. Would you care to share your basing method and materials please?

    Less enthusiasm, please. This is Britain.

    Cheers!  Nothing too complicated – artist’s mounting board (‘Dalerboard’ is the brand), painted in watered-down PVA and then dipped in play-pit sand or fine dune sand.  Then painted in Humbrol Enamel 29 Dark Earth and dry-brushed in Humbrol 94 Sand.  Lastly a ‘patchy’ paint with more watered-down PVA and a dip in Woodland Scenics ‘Blended Turf’ flock.  I also stick magnetic vinyl to the underside of the base.

    Thanks for that.  Have never tried flock, but I have used PVA on mounting board, though with the unfortunate result of the PVA bending the board up at both ends like a banana when used on larger bases.  I’ve moved on to MDF now.

    Perhaps it’s the brand, but I moved to mounting board because it didn’t bend (much) when soaked in PVA.  I also find that the magnetic vinyl under the base eliminates the slight bending of larger bases, when you leave them to dry on a tin-lid.  I’ve used mounting board for over 25 years now without a problem.
