I was drifting off to sleep the other night thinking about my recently constructed unit of Slaanesh Chaos Warriors and I wondered how could I make the bases a little more interesting? It struck me that why do I need to have all of the warriors at the same height? Could I not raise the ranks so that the rear is slightly higher than the front (someone is going to tell me that there is a rule regarding this aren't they)?
So last night after work I began working a piece of foam to use as a base for my unit.
Once I had my columns I began cutting into the foam. The first cut formed a taper from front to back thus ensuring the rear row would be higher than the front. I then cut the foam at different angles to try and replicate the form of slated rock. Once I achieved the desired effect I cut the columns into five even pieces (see below):
Next I need to decide where the unit filler(s) need to be positioned so that I can attempt to combine the squares where required?
More to come,
