I have been looking to make some blood spatter bases for my zombie games (and others) for a while now. Other bloggers have done it before and I'm envious at the neat little way it tallies zombie kills and adds another layer to the gaming experience. I made some a couple of years ago out of mdf and some filler, but I really like the clear bases that others have used. So while I was on Warbases the other day looking for unit bases for my Ancients armies, I happened to pick up 40 clear acrylic bases really cheaply.
Now I'm not going to insult you guys on how I put "base plus Tamiya Clear Red" together in a tutorial but I will show you how I made the "Guts" part of the title. "Borrowed" mostly from a very talented lady who calls herself the Crafting Muse. I poured hotglue onto baking paper to make blobs, then rather than painting them red I gave them a more realistic purple, blue, red with black clots colouring.
I then mounted them on the clear bases (I did six in total)
When covered by the Tamiya Clear Red it looks really good!
and on the board they look like......
let me know what you think?
