I’ve done my back in moving classrooms and so my progress has been somewhat slowed. I have three separate projects on the go that I am chipping away at in the short periods I can sit at the table and I should have them finished over the next couple of days.

Imperial Discipline Blog: How to Create a Kessel Spice Mines Base

I liked Solo.

I’ve already looked at one similar base in my Icy Ilum article where I used crackle paint to make a frozen lake effect. There have been plenty of really great crackle paint bases in the Facebook group already, too!
