Gardening World

William was convinced that the cacti had not been there when he had parked last night.

Four Great Escape Games Dead Man's Hand Cacti box in an Empress Technical.

The cacti are supplied five to a pack on 25mm diameter integral bases about twice the thickness of a Renedra 25mm plastic base. For these four, I removed the bases and glued them to Renedra ones.

The cacti were sprayed with Humbrol Matt Light Olive 86, dry brushed with Vallejo Uniform Green mixed with Vallejo Desrt Yellow.

Base colouring is Vallejo Desert Yellow, washed with Citadel Gryphonne Sepia then dry brushed Humbrol 93 acrylic with a final dry brush of Citadel Dheneb Stone.

Now all I need is some desert terrain to go with them.

In the meantime, here is a comparison shot of the large cacti on its original base and a rebased one.

I might use a 40mm Renedra base for this one.

The containers in the background are the new Ainsty ones.
