Paint the base blue/green etc for the base, and then use a two part epoxy resin like what is used for bar tops. If you want waves, let it dry for a little bit, and then tease up waves w/ a paintbrush w/ a little thinned white paint on it..
what usually works for me is this recipe - 2 parts PVA glue 2 parts gloss varnish (I use the stuff you would varnish, say, a bench with, rather than the one that Games Workshop makes) 1 part distilled water (it is important to use distilled water because you don't get the minerals from the tap into the water effects). This is thin enough so it will apply ...
Sealing a model means applying a coat of a transparent and durable protective layer after painting. Normally this is a clear varnish. After leaving your painted model to thoroughly dry, you brush or spray it on. This helps prevent chipping and flaking of your paint job during subsequent transportation and gaming. You have a basic choice of gloss or matte ...
I can't answer the specific question on drill bit types. I've don plenty of magnatizing, but haven't analyzed the tools I've used in that great of depth. I've used Dremel's precision drill bit set in my 7.2 Volt rotary tool. I've never had too big a problem with the convex bottom of the hole they create. If you match the drill bit size close enough to ...
This is not from me, but I approve it :) Skaven pros - They have access to vast arrays of troops/troop types, and can get them in vast quantities. The leadership rules they come with over-ride what would be a fatal weakness and combined with the new re-roll of all leadership tests allowed by the BSB and the generals leadership in a 24" diameter bubble ...
At Bell of Lost Souls, this article about water bases looks really awesome. Might be what you are searching for?
The easiest way (and often the best looking) is to use Water Effects. Woodland Scenics makes it: link as does Games Workshop itself. You create the terrain piece, and paint the areas that will eventually be under the effect with an appropriate color (often, blue is not appropriate for small pools of water...try brown or dark green) and the you simply pour in ...
Paint a surface blue, and then use Cling-Wrap, slightly crinkled in a regular pattern, glued over the top. Very fast/cheap, but there are more quality methods available.
