Thanks Number1

We did quiet a fair bit today, Jess did all the work on her base today.

Here are the two bases with the washes applied

Image

I dried brushed some highlights onto my base...

Image

...and first time for Jess doing dry brushing

Image

Some grass scatter was applied to the bases, here's mine

Image

and here's Jess's

Image

Sisal rope was used to make longer toughs of grass

My base

Image

Jess's base

Image

Here are the painted tanks, both waiting to have their decor transfers applied and also yet to be weathered.

Jess's tank

The bases and tanks are almost finished.

Thanks Mark and Caper

The decor went on using micro set and sol

This was Jess' first time applying decor and she apprehensive in applying them. Actually she enjoyed applying them.

You might notice that over the last few days, my photos are very clear and sharp :) No I don't have a new camera, I've recently been shown how to take good close up shots using my camera. I'm also got a pop up lighting/photo studio coming which will also help take better close up shots.

The Tanks have been weathered, also both the tanks and base have some pigment powders applied. The black paint on the base sides were also tidied up.
