Bag the MiG Hex Bases


I spent a quiet, de-stressing afternoon yesterday assembling and undercoating a set of bases for the Bag the MiG project, using the tried and tested combination of 40mm panel pins, 30mm x 3mm laser cut mdf hexagons and 7mm dice frames. The fun bit is cutting off the tips of the panel pins with a Dremel, which is very satisfying in a slightly pyrotechnical direction, although the resulting smell of burning metal is less appealing.

The bases got an undercoat of Halfords grey primer but, being quite fibrous, this needed sanding down and re-spraying before I could think about a top coat. I was thinking of finding a nice sky blue car aerosol shade to spray paint the bases over the grey basecoat, but I think I'll use the usual approach and brush on a couple of layers of Vallejo 70844 Deep Sky Blue, which I've used on my other scratch built hex bases.
