Building a base for the big boy...

So the time has come to create the base for the Eldar Reaver Titan model that I've been painting. It'd be a shame to put so much effort into painting a model and then not have at least something semi-cool to put it on. So that's what I did. Tossing around a few ideas and finally settling on a ruined building that the Titan can be stepping through.

One of the keys I've found to painting scenic bases is to try adding a bit of colour. It's easy enough to say well the building would be grey and the surrounding dirt and rubble would be grey. But go and have a look at an old building and see, that while there is usually one overriding 'colour' After years of exposure there is dirt, mold, moss, discoloration etc...This makes for a visually interesting piece. Likewise when trying to replicate old building it helps to throw a bit of colour around.

Hope you like it.
