1: Our Warlord Games plastic Roman Legionary has been painted and is ready for basing. Paint on PVA glue with a brush.

2: Take your flat-nosed Hobby Pliers and pluck up a lump of tuft and attach it to the wet PVA glue.

3: Dip your base into the flock – in this case Battlefields Grass Green flock (of course, you can use any combination of flocks or battleground basing). After a few minutes you can touch up the side of the base with Army Painter Warpaints Brown.

4: The three different Tufts available at the moment; Jungle Tuft, Highland Tuft and Swamp Tuft.

5: To help you decide what Tuft colour is best for your army check them out on the bases of our noble Roman legionaries. Indeed, mixing the Tuft in a regiment can add an even more realistic effect. Note that Winter Tufts will be released in January 2011.
