I want to do an Imperial Road theme so here is the first part of my tutorial on how to do them, next one will be about painting them.
- 3 round bike bases
- some green stuff
- a piece of sand paper
- The small Emperor Aquila bit from the brass etched pieces that come with the Warhammer 40k basing kit.
PROCEDUREWith that list of materials I prepared the green stuff and molded it over the bike bases, trying to be consistent and achieve an uniform thickness.
here you can see that I uses a bit of plastic to get an uniform finish
next I wanted to give it a rough finish instead of the smooth texture I got, so I uniformly pressed the 3 bases against the sand paper (you can use the one you like the most I had only a rough one at hand)
The following step was to partially glue the Aquila brass bit to a plastic pipe and that way I got an easy seal that I proceeded to stamp over the green stuff
from there I used the flat end of a hobby knife to do the slate separations and the sharp one to do some holes
As a final step I clean the borders with the hobby knife and let them cure. Until next time when I will try to get a good concrete color that enhance the overall work. stay tuned.
