I need to paint tons of weapon platforms for our Imperial guard team tournament!

So here's the bases.

First I casted half oil drums and steel legions gunners.

Then I made sandbags out of greens stuff. You can see I used an apron and a dictionary to flatten long rolls of green stuff and to add texture to the sand bags. Then I used an exacto knife dipped in bees wax to add the groove down the side of the sand bag. Another tips is if you wear rubber gloves you can avoid finger prints in the molds when cutting, chapping and stackin the sand bags.

I also weathered the oil drums by using the foam from a blister and boltgun metal paint and dappling the cans. Finally, white glue and GW sand is used for gravel.

Next step will be do sponge on Minwax floor wax color black tudor for a hard layer that protects and shades the bases.

And for the bases I used the really cheap hard board ones from Gale force nine that you can buy in Chinese food containers :P

Where did you get that apron?
Fast, like kittens with jetpacks.

It's a bad day for Joe guardsmen when the only available cover is gasoline tanks.
