Are you looking for a fast and easy way to paint a stone base?
The base of a miniature adds a huge amount of atmosphere to a model. Stone or cracked rocky terrain is a common motif in a lot of fantasy miniatures, e.g., Warhammer Age of Sigmar, and other tabletop hobby games.
A base paint job is the final step in any miniature painting. The great thing about painting realistic stone areas doesn’t have to be difficult or slow. In fact, only a little bit of skill and patience is all you need.
In this article, I show you my basic workflow for painting a stone base that looks great for tabletop paint jobs. It’s also a great foundation for other special effects where you want to make your model stand out from it’s environment.
As a bonus, I also show you how I painted the object source lighting (OSL) special effect on this model stone base.
