WIP: Helion Rain - Laying the foundation

Inspiration is great, but progress is better. The picture frame above needs a solid base for the minis to anchor, but it can't be too heavy. Foam isn't a very tough anchor though is it...


So, some MDF for the top layer helps...
Keep that pen handy because next we have to mark out where the terrain will go...
...and then ignore that placement when inspiration strikes...
 This is going like poop through a goose! Time to add some textures and build up details...
First I use apoxie sculpt to build up the rubble and blend it into the base...
Then the other bits and bobs....
 Ready for priming!
Well that was fun! Thanks for tagging along :)

***NOVA UPDATE***
Got the insignia done. the pics are a bit washed out so the subtle shading of the insignia isn't that clear. Oh well. Colors and pictures below...
 Onto the fatigues and cloaks, then when I weather the armour these will tie in really nicely.
