Progress rolls on slowly with my Sigmarines, managed an hour tonight and did a little test work with the basing as well. My friend went to our local GW and picked up the cracked earth paints they have. I have had Martian Ironearth (i believe its called) since it came out but never used it properly. He sent me a picture of his bases and it reminded me of a lava base turorial I seen on Youtube a while back.
My little experiment pre Ironearth application. I am leaving the colours to dry and will paint it tomorrow morning before work. Hopefully it will come out looking ok and then I can look at replicating cracked ice and the like.
