Hammurabi70 – was that asking me how I did the 6mm stuff? If so read below, if not ignore it and sorry for butting in!
For these I based 3 figures on each 30×30 MDF square. Used PVA and sand for the texture and to hide the edges of the bases a little. The sand I had sieved to make sure it was as fine as possible. A very basic dark brown base coat and then lightened twice to drybrush highlights, the second being mostly white but enough brown to discolour it slightly. The grass is 1mm static grass (from Serious Play on Ebay) and I used two different colours, one after the other to create some differences in tone.

Thanks; very useful. I am never very happy with my 6mm basing so I always want to know how people have done good looking basing!02/06/2020 at 15:16 #13741902/06/2020 at 15:22 #137420Gillies SimParticipant

Thank you! The method is pretty simple but I think gives a decent finish.
Nice Cave Mike!

For what it’s worth, Baccus sell finer sand and shorter static grass more suitable for 6mm figures. I agree with Gillies; finer material and grass looks better with smaller scale figures, but I’m too lazy to actually sift my sand! (And I suspect my wife might have words with me about the grit in her flour sifter)

Thanks very much Thomaston, I appreciate it – I’m not normally any good at doing stuff like that, I was really pleased how it turned out.
