Just a quick pre-work post on those orcs I've just gotten.
I based them yesterday in the usual style:
- cleaned, filed, and prepped them.
- mounted shields w/epoxy.
- embedded them in an inverted slotted base with Kneadtite.
- filled in the open spaces with Golden Gel Medium Coarse Pumice Gel.
Now they're drying. Later today, if the heat keeps up and the humidity keeps low, they'll get black primered. They should be fully painted by the end of the week and in the box for Felltower deployment in no time.
I really should do a step-by-step demo of how I do the cup bases like this. It's simple but people keep asking, and text alone isn't cutting it.
