#5 Gold Dragon

Spice up your miniature bases with some battlefield rocks.
No longer are they just walking through dense brush and forestry… but you can use battlefield rocks to make rocky outcoves, broken steps, riverbeds, mountainous crags, hunting trails, or even semi-constructed roads.
Miniature bases need more than just plants to make it look nice - And for futuristic settings like Warhammer painting bases in Battlefield Rocks is an excellent way to give off an harsh alien environment.
And if you’re painting mini acrylic painting for a D&D or roleplyaing miniature game, then these rocks would make an excellent base for a monstrous miniature or wild character.
Every painter knows they need different brushes for different techniques.
This unique brush is a base coat brush, just the right size that’s uniquely designed to basecoat perfectly.
Use a basecoat brush to apply the bottom coat of paint without it being time consuming (not a fine detail brush) or pooling large pools of paint (fat brush).
Every miniature needs a base.
Without a base, they look… well… bland.
Don’t let your newly painted miniatures look bland.
Warhammer 40k painting apprentices need more flock for their army.
New painters will need a flock box to really make their miniatures feel immersive, and this woodland tuft box can be applied to any base with ease.
Perfect for whole armies or even singular minis.
