[Guide] Basing Overview

Post#1 » Jan 20 2014 10:37

Hello ATT

I found this old guide on how to do certain GW bases a while back after deleting files I didn't need anymore. It is doesn't seem to be on the GW website anymore and seems to be about 7 years old so I guess it should be put up on here for everyone to use.

I have also converted the paints to the new citadel ones.

Can I make a request? Would I be possible to show both new and old paints? 95% of my paints are old ones, I could probably work it out myself, but if others are in the same position it would be great to have a comparison. Plus some of the old colours are not represented in the new sets, scorpion green for example my wife uses a lot and there isn't a close enough match.

Awesome work though, thanks for your contribution!

Thanks for fielding that request Creaky, a lot of folks still do have the older paints; look forward to the addition when you have time. :)

I have a day off tommorow and will be able to format this up, do you want it as it is but with old paints? Or do you want it to be a seperate entry?
