I have been doing some hobby bits for myself today. Shocking I know. A week or so ago, at the meet-up, I bought some Age of Sigmar miniatures with the intention of actually learning to play the game. I have been thinking about what I want to get out of the miniatures I bought and how I want to make them look amazing.
I went for Ioneth Deepkin – or Fish elves as I have been calling them.
I don’t like the plastic stick that holds up some of the miniatures, so I have been looking for a way around using them. Here is what I did today.
First I mixed some liquid resin and painted it over some cotton wool. I have heard of this being done before and wanted to see what it looks like.
I am not convinced how well this will actually work, but you never know without trying.
I then tried another method, which I think will work better. I cut up bits of blister plastic into triangles and glued them onto a base:
I then covered the base in gel diorama water effects stuff. I also built a wave and another base to see how they turn out:
I need to let them dry and see how they look then. I suspect I will need to put another layer on as well, but we shall see. It is a start and I am only going to learn by trying different things. Let’s hope one of them will lead to success!
