slow going with the Shai-Hulud. Not much time for minis these last couple of weeks.
and struggling with the base for the Shai-Hulud. And then – inspiration. A dune.
so a rough dune done in green stuff. A CD was used as the base of the base, as I did not have anything better handy.
Big mistake. CDs are made of akrylic (I think), a hard and brittle plastic. And really horrible to cut. Ages of scoring followed by —the scissors.
Do not try to cut a CD with scissors if you want a clean cut. Agonizing breakagesn and flying shards ensued. Should have used a saw of some kind. Oh well.
Also, green stuff really is too expensive to be used for large base-filling such as this. One uses what is at hand and regrets it later.
It is all to be covered in fine sand anyways.
