This stage is followed by a first matt acrylic varnish. this seals the paints, enhances metallics and undercuts and gives a good key on the shields for the decals. The decals are then applied and a final varnish applied. So now ready for basing.
Which brings us to the penultimate stage of basing and thats where I'm at now. Once the glue is quite dry I'll apply the lava sand and flock to get the base look I use on my models.
Maybe I'll make a final post showing the basing process..
