The photo above is the Brown and green contingent of the unit. For this box i have gone with the troop look with the addition of a skin tone highlight and also i shall be basing them which is something i do if the customer asks but is not included in the price usually.
I wanted their bases to be a bit special as i believe the Troop look really looks best when you use a nice base, this is often the reason i ask my clients for "based" photos of the miniatures i have worked on for them. I believe that the base really brings everything together.
(also they a nice stark contrast to the grey bases which makes them really pop on the bases of the miniatures and brings out the brownish yellow of the straps on the miniatures all the while highlighting the miniatures military importance against a more soft and beautiful symbolic imagery)
I used just a tiny nail scissor cut snip of the flowers and tweezed them onto some silflor tufts with super glue gently. The result was lovely. not amazing but pretty cool! I am getting progressively better at this technique as can be seen in the following photos. I find the trick is just o be selective and TAKE YOUR TIME! As with most things in this job!
