After so long working on your most fantastic paint job ever, you put a base on it only to discover that something is not quite right?
Have you though about it? What it could be?
To illustrate my point I will use unfinished models but they will suffice. First the non matching bases one black and the other white.
The models look good and many hobbyists will stop at that point (well I know the face on the first one needs a bit of work but that is for another post) but after some extra work here they are:
Now the models themselves haven’t changed but they look better on the second round, why? it is simple the base is an extension of your model, so the colors you chose for it become part of it. When you get that point you will understand that you can also apply the advice given by SandWyrm on his color theory series to choose the colors for your base to get a more unified and better looking model.
I know the article is short but the idea is to give you food for though so you can start reviewing your basing strategy and in turn get better results with your mimis.
