Review: Basing Workshop, Augsburg

By Massive Voodoo

Hello ladies and gentlemen,

I really forgot to post and review this one.
A truely wonderful Basing Workshop in english language I held back in the end of 2018.
I got no idea how this just slipped through and no one reminded me 😀

Well, here we go …
My basing class is something special. Everyone who took part can tell it. It deeply explains insight into harmony, using the golden ratio in big and small aspects and so far was focused on the topic “After the Apocalypse, Nature strikes back”.

Just look at this …
a student’s project work in progress from this workshop:

and it connects with this …



Crazy, eh?
It just feels right, balanced and amazing.
There are rules for such things that you can include in your base too. It is such a wonderful topic to teach hands on and I can only recommend this seminar to you if you want to improve your basing skills. Here is a short overview:

Instructor: Roman Lappat

In this MV class Roman takes you deeper into basing. No gaming bases. What makes a good display base? Learn more about composition rules you can put to use while basing, learn different focused material aspects on the subject: “After the postapocalypse, nature returns”.

You can find an in depth describtion via my curriculum:

After these two the topic of the seminar will change and I will never teach
“After the postapocalypse, nature returns” again. The workshop will still see the same frame of content, but the material and theme will be different.

Well, back to this splendid weekend we enjoyed together last year.

I want to thank this cool bunch of students who really made this weekend special. Travelling from all over Europe (Swiss, Czech Republic, Ireland, Denmark, Germany) to be part of this seminar makes me only say: Thank you so much!

And the results for one weekend were so different and so specially beautiful:

Even some did not believe
in all my explanations or at least were kind of sceptical. At least it looks on this photo 😀

Quickly, the skepticism turned into focused joy:

Of course,
learning to build such bases is not only sitting down and working on them, glueing material together and calling it a base. A lot of wisdom in this seminar, comes from my teachings about perspective, balance, golden ratio and harmony of elements. It goes deep. So deep that that I can not write it all here for you, but I can show you the fun part of the seminar that sums up the theory:

Real life basing!

Humans!
… but why?

In between it was always time to sit down in front of well prepared theory lessons!

🙂

Thanks to Josua and Jakob for
sending over some of their photos for this review!

What are these humans doing?

More theory …

Our basing cave. The Massive Voodoo Studio!

It has been such a joy to see everyone’s individual project grow – here are some WIPs:

Everybody busy working …

With a little gorilla help!

Sometimes we even moved from the workspaces, mainly to grab some food. It was a cold winter’s weekend …

Well, this has been a really interesting idea and execution!

Primed bases on Sunday morning, time for painting …

Glueing a tiny beam of a sea cat’s urin …
one of the strangest things I did in my whole life!

Is he really doing this?

In depth explanations, if need be … it was cold!

RESULTS
It is really magnificant what my students can create in this 2,5 days. Just look at these bases and I bet you can feel them:

Overview

Yeah, well …

Thank you gentlemen for an awesome weekend.
Thank you for your patience for this review!

Keep on happy basing!
Roman
