Tip for basing your toy soldiers

Sometimes speed is essential in both painting and basing.
A while ago I managed to create a method that speeds up the process somewhat, and gives me ok look compared to my previous PVA glue + sand type basing.
This is also applicable to terrain making where you need to cover large surfaces fast.

Blood Bowl Troll ready

At last. After yesterday's SAGA tournament, I started painting this "beauty". With it, I tried a couple of new things.

BB troll update, assembly and basecoating done.

So, I got the troll's head glued to the body. After that, I did some cleaning up with sandpaper and liquid greenstuff, and primed the whole thing white.
I then washed it with slightly thinned agrax earthshade to bring out possible cracks and holes in the surface, and used a bit more liquid greenstuff.
I also realized that I hadn't done any measurements of if it fits to 25mm base or being prone in the field yet.. Luckily it does.
It has been now painted blue, and I can hopefully get working on painting it this sunday.

Sculpting a BB troll (WIP)

I'm starting to build a orc team to Blood Bowl, so I of course need a troll to go with it. As the rest of the team will most likely be converted from GW products, I looked GW trolls as well first. They were expensive and not very troll like in my humble opinion. So, I thought to give sculpting a try for the first time..
