Title: "dead Snake" Movement Trays
Tonberry - May 13, 2012 10:30 AM (GMT)
I've had an idea to paint piles of bones/chariot wreckage/broken necropolis knights directly onto the space on the movement tray where the model stands.... so when you remove the model you can see a "dead"... (re-dead?) Tomb Kings model, super fluffy for resurrecting dead troops!
Not only will it look cool, I think it will be an awesome reminder for people that even though that model is dead right now... it'll be undead again very shortly :D
Before I start I've love your thoughts on this!

I think it's a great idea for modeling purposes. I say go for it!

That sounds great! Looking forward to seeing the results!

That's a really cool idea, Tonberry. It might be easier for you (and save a load of time) if you made one and printed out a few pictures of it for your other movement trays though.
In any event, I'd love to see how these turn out. :)

Yeah my freehand skills are terrible so I'm thinking of making something and printing it on nice glossy paper and protecting it with something. Laminate maybe? But not so shiny. Then I can just print them off as I need it, or even put it up here for y'all.

Interesting concept. Lets see it :)

You could use Fablon. :)
For those who don't know, it's basically a kind of sticky backed plastic film and usually comes with a printed marble or wood design (used for decorating old work surfaces to give them a new look etc), but you can also get transparent stuff too.
I've seen rolls of it in Wilkinsons if you have those down your neck of the woods, but you should be able to get in pretty much any DIY type place.
