So, I am currently on a mission to have a 5,000 point playable at 3,200 points army of each race in 6th Edition. I am not picky on models, so metal, plastic, finecast, new, old, whatever is game for inclusion. So this will be random, with many armies. I like to base entire armies at once when I do them, so I will be getting on that soon-ish.

I got my first wood elves model in this week. Got it almost finished.

Painted my High Elf standard Bearer, my first time freehand painting a banner.

Chaos Tzeentch chariot. I'm completely lost on what to base them with. I like to do each army with different colours and basing materials.

Bretonnians, the army is finished, just need to sit down and grass them up.

Zacharias, I have since added his familiar.

thanks, hopefully I can figure out what I want to do for the bases. I haven't figured out what I want to do yet.

This is amazing, such a crazy collection of miniatures! That's a hell of an ambitious project, so keep it at it :) That Bretonnian army looks particularly gorgeous, with those green bases and old armybooks!

Have to get some batteries for my lightbox this week, but I touched up this Bloodthirster that I picked up half complete this week. There wasn't a lot of highlighting or detail done, just the base colours.

Beautiful work, I’m envious that you get so much done xD

Regarding your indecisiveness with the bases, I had the same issue and so just did a bunch of test bases.

I had a pretty clear idea of something that contrasted nicely with my armies color schemes. For undead, I paint them blue so I went for orange/yellow basing (autumn forest). For orcs & goblins, they’re all green with some black clothing so I went for orange/brown (Durotar-style wasteland).

If you want them all the same then maybe a brown base and dots of dead grass or scorched grass would work.

I have been debating a cracked lava floor for the chaos, just haven't figured out how to go about it without taking forever or breaking the bank lol. A second option I have been thinking about is ashes of a burnt forest and just coating the ground with snow flocking and adding some burnt tree trunks to the bases.
