The kelp seashore basing I started last week has turned out quite nicely; I began with a base coat in a dull earthen brown, inked in dark brown. When that dried, I highlighted the raised surfaces and edges in a light tan, and gave the fronds a glaze of green ink to finish. The rocks were finished in a light tone to duplicate the weathered surfaces found on the storm-wracked shores of the grey northern seas...

I'm quite happy with that, so I'll carry the basing scheme over to the remaining seven figs in the unit. I'm working my way towards completion, slowly but surely! Here are the three figures which are closest to their finished state.
|YEAARRGGGHHH!! Stubbed my bloody toe!!!|

A few finishing touches yet to be done, but I think that they'll turn out OK (fingers crossed!).
Don't forget that the Analogue Hobbies Painting Challenge kicks off on 5 December; the blogosphere's finest brushmeisters, figlimners, modeltintists and pigmentophorists will be competing for the approbation of their fellows by painting up a storm over the following three months.
C&G's own Millsy has thrown his hat into the ring, and we are in no doubt that he will acquit himself honourably, so stay tuned!
