In this simple tutorial, we will see how to quickly create lava bases for our miniatures and wargames. In my case, I will use these lava bases for the Salamanders Space Marines chapter, from the Warhammer 40k game.
Firstly, the bases are prepared adding some cork. In addition, we can add other elements such as stones or rocks.
Using green stuff, small balls of different sizes are created and glued to the base. The objective of these small balls will be to create the bubbling lava effect.
Apply a generous layer of PVA glue all over the base. This layer will hide the texture that some bases have, as well as an ideal base to simulate lava.
They are left to dry for several hours. T he result once dry will be the following. The bases are ready to begin the painting process.
In the next tutorial, we’ll see how to paint these lava bases.
