well I've been considering rebasing my craftworld eldar, so here is a first crack at a base for the forgeworld Avatar of Khaine. I think they need some sort of texture though...

I might tinker around with all the symbols sitting on top of like a Copple stone or something, kind of like the silver tower bases.. hmmm...

Left has a raised Khaine symbol, with everything else is groove, the one on the right is everything grooved out.


still waiting for the price of 3d printers to drop a bit, but why not form a queue while I'm waiting lol.

Those are absolutely amazing. I do prefer the fully recessed image. I imagine those being painted up as stone or concrete with a magma glow coming up from the runes. That's a stellar concept mage.

Cool concept, Mage! I agree with DoW's preference for the recessed base. You could do some bright furnace scheme with that ;D.

These are beautiful designs.  I like both, but my preference would also be for the fully recessed version.  I look forward to seeing how you decide to use these moving forward.

well more tinkering keeping with the craftworld theme, thought I'd give a 25mm base a shot, thought a walk way might look something like this.

The 2nd ed drawing of the dire Avenger has a walk way with ovals, but looked a little plain, not sure about the wood grain effect.



well with any luck the US black Friday sales might see one of the entry level resin printers go on sale :)

The designs look great; if you want to add some variation without to the stonework without adding woodgrain you could use some gloss/satin varnish to make certain parts look more polished than others.

That's some absolute graphic design shenanigans, and I think it's going to pay off by dividends toward the end ;D. Keep up the great work.
