Every now and then I happen across a figure which is a little bit different and inspires a basing idea for me to get my teeth into. Such was the case here with this figure by Crooked Dice. To be fare the figure isn’t that special but it took my fancy and the base is a simple affair too.
The figure conjured up a Jules Verne image in my head which in turn made me think of “Journey To The Centre Of The Earth” which led to a base a long the lines volcanic lava and hot coals. I decided not to get to carried away and kept it simple using just a few granite chippings from the garden. Milliput was used to secure the chippings and create the base which once dried was painted with yellow, orange and red blobs and allowed to dry. Citadel textured paint was then applied reasonably thickly on top and allowed to dry and crack revealing the colour below.
