So after posting pictures of my Necron bases, I received a few requests as￼king me how it was done. It’s a really quick and easy method which should let you churn out bases fast. So without further ado, here’s how you do it.
First up, you need the following:
- Your base
- Wood pieces (I got these at a nursery cheaply. Just have to be sure to dry them out so rot doesn’t set in.)
- Black primer
- Grey and white paints
- 3D fabric paints (I’m using fluorescent green and fluorescent yellow)
- White Glue
That’s pretty much all you need.
Step 1: Select your wood piece and cut/break off pieces till your satisfied with the shape and then glue it to your base.
Step 2: Prime everything in black.
Step 3: Heavy drybrush the wood with your choice of grey. I’m using GW Mechanicus Standard Grey here.
Step 4: Now for the magic. Apply the green fabric paint around the base for your toxic waste. While it is still wet, squeeze some of the yellow in a few places to give it the appearance of other chemicals mixed in. Apply the paints thickly because they shrink when they dry. Leave the bases alone for a few hours to let the fabric paints fully dry.
Step 5: For the final step, just lightly drybrush white over the rocks and toxic wastes.
And that’s it. Your bases are done.
