What a difference, a base makes. 25 little millimetres.

Greetings, fellow humans! This week, I have mostly been re-basing ALL of my 40k Orks (as threatened earlier in the year). Whatever git thought that would be a good idea deserves a smack in the teef!

I spent the majority of my weekend scraping old sand off their bases, then adding new sand, painting/drybrushing them and finally re-painting the rims a classy black. I ran out of PVA and Zandri Dust at one point, so I had to venture out for supplies too. In total, I did this for nearly 200 models – including over a dozen Dreads and Flyers. It would have been over 300, had I not sold a load of old Orks last year (to make way for new ones, obviously).

I thought it’d be good to get a comparison pic, so the first models that I re-based were the ones in my initial post from the start of last year. As with my re-based Goffs, I think that they look much better now. The lighter base colour is much more consistent than the old mix of Vomit Brown/Steel Legion Drab rims with unpainted Citadel Sand (which was a variety of colours).

I’ll take a few photos before I put everything away too, so over the coming weeks I’ll share some army pics/shots of my newly re-based Evil Sunz, Deathskulls and Bad Moons.

Next week, I’ll hopefully get back to my Gobbos…

    1. Cheers! I’m glad I’m not the only one who prefers it. I’m certainly not going to change it back again!
