I got the Renedra plastic bases in the post today, which was a nice surprise as I only ordered them a couple of days ago. As you can see, I've had a go at mocking up a Brigade Models ONESS Apollo hover tank on a standard 20mm x 30mm base, to see how it looks.
I think it looks pretty good, so I'll be cracking on with this mini-project in the next couple of weeks.
The advantage of having hover tanks is that I don't have to worry about bedding them into the bases, as you would do with conventional tracked or wheeled AFV's. This leaves me free to texture and paint the bases, whilst painting the armour seperately using a quick undercoat, stipple, drybrush and wash approach.
Not only that but the bases are a nice matt light brown colour, so that any unpainted bits can be easily blended in to the overall effect. Result!
