Screamin for a Reason

Been working pretty furiously on the Chthonic Demons lately. Finished the modeling (ie. bases) on two units of Screamers. Here's some pics of one unit and how I did it.

The bases were done in 5 to 7 layers of Apoxie Sculpt. There are flying stands encased in the main stalagmite on each base and tooth picks in the core of most of the smaller ones.

The stones/rock/flock stuff is actually pumice (similar to the GW paints w/ sand already mixed in). I used a mix of coarse and fine pumice gel with regular basing sands and little rocks mixed in. I applied it mostly with a toothpick, but a spatula like sculpting tool is also helpful. Afterwards, I did a watered down brushing of the fine pumice gel all over the bases. This ties the stones/debris/flock into the base, rather than just sitting on top. Hard to tell in the pics as it dries clear.

Any questions, let me know.

I'm putting the final touches on the Fury bases. I redid the basing on some of those guys and am very pleased with how they turned out. Those and other goodies to be posted soon.
