So I had a bit of an issue yesterday on how to sort a base out that was part of the model and I had already painted it. So I asked on my post and the mighty TIM http://theimperfectmodeller.co.uk had an interesting suggestion of carving the flag stones I was after into the base. So I gave it a go! And to be honest I’m fairly pleased with it, so thanks TIM!
Now I’ve got a couple more of these none combat units to do that I want these bases as if they are in some part of the castle, so below I’ve done a step by step guide of how I got here. But before I show that I thought I’d say why I was thinking this. The idea is a cobblestone floor (Google shows that as many floors of castle ramparts) but with a bit of snow as it’s a very cold area, also some grit as castle black is described as somewhat derelict in the books and some straw, as I think it was commonly used at these times for all sort of things and got everywhere.
