Painted Action Bases

A bit of a mini build: I finally took the time to paint up some action bases to go along with my build displays! A good action base can go a long way to complimenting pictures you take with kits. I painted 3 bases, and I’ve done enough masking I can handle for the time being. I’ve provided a step-by-step if you want to make your own painted action bases. Check it out!

Step by step guide
