Exhibit & Tutorial: It’s crushing time! Czas coś zgnieść!

Night Goblins Shaman & Warboos Foot of Gork base
While preparing for Hussar 2017 I got an idea for a very funny base for my Night Goblins (Moonclan Grots) Shaman, Warboss and a certain headless unfortunate – Foot of Gork! Below you will also find a short tutorial for making this base and if you’re curious how I made bases for those night goblins you can find a separate tutorial here.
It’s crushing time! =)

Przygotowując się na Hussara 2017 wpadłem na pomysł zabawnej podstawki dla mojego Szamana i Duża Szef Nocnych Goblinów (Moonclan Grots) oraz pewnego bezgłowego nieszczęśnika – Stopa Gorka! Na końcu posta znajdziecie również krótki poradnik robienia tej podstawki, a jeśli chcecie wiedzieć jak zrobiłem podstawki samym  goblinom to zapraszam tutaj.
Czas coś zgnieść! =)

Tutorial / Poradnik
Paint a base dark brown and draw a foot like on the photo below. Pomaluj podstawkę ciemnym brązowym, a następnie narysuj na niej stopę, jak na zdjęciu poniżej.

Night Goblins Foot of Gork base tutorial

The effect can be very different depending on what you want your foot to look like. I used the cracle effect on the inside of the foot (after using the cracle effect I let it dry and then painted it with a thin coat of lighter brown – the cracles will appear in the direction of your brush strokes). To finish the base you only need to glue sand and grass around the foot and between toes.

Końcowy efekt może być dowolny, zaś ja wykorzystałem efekt spękania na wnętrzu stopy (po nałożeniu i wyschnięciu efektu spękania należy go pomalować cienką warstwą jaśniejszej farby – spękania pojawią się zgodnie z ruchami pędzla). By dokończyć podstawkę wystarczy przykleić wokół stopy i między palcami piasek oraz trawkę.
