Painting Our Jungle Bases

Jungle Bases

Which colours you use or from which company they are really does not matter, just use the ones you find the best, the technique is always the same.

Same goes for the brushes, we just used these sizes and wanted to add the information for completeness, if you prefer to use different sizes go ahead.

The “primary” colours are the colours you will need to paint the actual base the way we did. The “secondary” colours are the colours you can use to paint the different objects or details we have added to the bases.

  3. 3.Add some more LB to the mix and dry brush the complete base using the size 1 dry brush.
  4. 4.Now use pure LB and dry brush the complete base using the size 1 dry brush.
  5. 5.Add a little BW to the LB and dry brush the complete base using the size 1 dry brush.
  6. 6.Add more BW to the mix and dry brush only the edges and higher surfaces using the size 1 dry brush.
  7. 7.Again add a little more BW to the mix and only dry brush the outer edges and highest points using the size 6 dry brush.
  8. 8.Use some SW and with the size 1 brush paint over the earth and roots (as you have already dry brushed the roots and earth patches in a light colour it will shine though the wash)
  9. 9.Now using B paint bring some depth back into all the cracks and around the roots using the size 1 brush If the y re too light..
  10. 10.Paint the lizard and any foliage in DG using the size 1 brush.
  11. 11.Time for the finishing touches. Add a little GY to the DG and dry brush the lizard and any foliage. Outline any detail with a thinned down black line. Paint the base sides black or any other desired colour.

Best is to paint all bases in sets of 5 at a time which will speed things up.

Add some leaves and flock and you will be ready to game.
