This week I finally got around to the bases. My basic method is to apply Vallajo Sandy Paste to a 2p piece, which then is painted craft shop burnt umber and dry brushed with desert brown before flocking. A handy tip for getting that extra bit of texture is to drop a tray-full of them face down on the carpet before the paste dries.

Some of you may remember that back last September I bought a Wallace and Gromet rocketship in a charity shop.
Well, inspired by another work of genius from Colonel O'Truth, I broke out the British Racing Green. A little homage to The Master...
I'm not sure if it's finished yet. In fact, I'm a little tempted to look for a '4472' decal.
Terrain targets for the coming week:-
- Hot glue fun with aquarium plants
- Finish the river
- Dry-brush some resin rocks
- Look at the half-finished buildings in the Pottering Shed
Coming tomorrow: Dr Who Wednesday with news from planet Skaro.
