My latest project is two WWII Eastern Front armies in 10 mm. I will be basing them in 3 X 3 cm. bases and while I am waiting for them to arrive I made a test with two Russian officers in 2 X 2 cm. bases.
The one on the left is simply flocked; the other on the right has sand glued, then painted, then washed and finally drybrushed.
The one on the right has three times more work that the one on the left but I think its base contrast much more with the figure than the first one.
Having in mind that officers are more colourful than Russian soldiers, what do you think? Should I go with the first or with the second flocking?
