Build a Revenant Titan - Part 7
With the Revenant Titan now joined, and the engines in place, it was finally time to put it on a base. It had taken a long time to find one that I was happy with... the initial ones I looked at were too big and there were many that were too small. I settled on an oval base "liberated" from a china figurine of my mum's. The figurine had suffered an unfortunate incident (and no, it wasn't a "convenient accident"... except that it was, after all, very convenient in deed!)
Being oval means the base is not huge, so reduces "wasted space". This means that I don't need to worry about adding extra interest to it, keeping the focus on the Titan itself. More importantly, the base has a nice thickness and edge detail to it too, plus felt on the underside which would help avoid slipping!
The hole for the foot pin went in at the right angle and whilst I would have perhaps liked to insert more pins I didn't want to ruin anything... besides, I can't stand visible pins (you'll note the Forge World Titans have this)... so, I don't plan to add more pins unless it turns out the Revenant can't stand without visible pins!!!
