I decided, while waiting for my infinity order to arrive, that a skirmish game would be the ideal opportunity to try out some resin bases. So I picked some up, and today I re-based my Ariadna demo squad.
The bases are from dark art miniatures (one of the ‘urban’ sets), and the units are 2x line kazaks a veteran kazak, and a chasseur. So. A step by step…
I tried a little trick here that I saw on another blog this morning, dabbing the pins certainly helped. About halfway through I realised that I should really shift/bend the pins so that they’re perpendicular to the model’s ‘ground ‘.
The next three definitely slid in much more easily.
Tricky bits? As I mentioned straightening the pins makes them slide into the base more easily, it also increases the blob of paint’s accuracy. I also occasionally found myself wishing for heroic scale models, because some of these had some really tiny feet.
Well, I’m falling asleep, so I’m gonna crash now. Overall, a great experience, and I’m happy with the results.
