Making Dust Clouds
For BattleCry I decided that I needed a dust cloud for each vehicle in my force, which was 31. I hate odd numbers so I went with 32!
|Step 1: The dog was so kind as to rip open his dog bed, so I had plenty of stuffing kicking around! Just needed to tear out some whispy-looking bits.|
|Step 2: I prepared 32 medium bases by covering the top in PVA glue and sprinkling sand over the top. Letting that dry overnight, I was ready to go.|
|Step 3: After the glue had cried, I used my trusty hot glue gun to put a massive blob of glue in the middle. Don't bother with trying to glue it down with PVA as it doesnt stick to the stuffing really well.|
|Step 4: Fix the whispy stuffing bit onto the base so that it simulates movement. Don't worry if you've got a squirrely looking one as you can trim it with scissors later..|
|Steps 5-36: Rinse & Repeat|
That was it! And, best of all, they worked a treat!
