The original position colors were as follows:
I always follow these guidelines when I paint my base rings, but the color is not really important as long as you can tell the miniatures apart.
I often get asked how I paint the base rings on my Blood Bowl miniatures. Up until now I have always done them in freehand, but in the future I will be doing them in the following way.
|Score the base|
Start by scoring the base with a sharp knife. The knife should be resting on the table allowing you to slowly turn the base around creating an even score in the base. When done flip the base around and repeat.
Take care not to cut yourself when trying this.
At this point you will want to glue your miniature to the base.
When the miniature has been fixed to the base you can go ahead and prime the whole thing white (Or whatever color you prefer).
|Base ring color|
Paint the positional color. You don't have to be neat at this step.
|Paint the border|
Paint the borders in your preferred color. I use black as it contrasts well with everything. The scores should guide your brush leaving you with a perfect colored stripe with sharp borders.
I can tell you that this procedure is a hell of a lot easier to pull off than if you try to make the stripes in freehand and for me it is definitely the way to go looking forward.
Hope this is helpful.
