I need a basing guide which is easy to do because I'm new to this hobby. I would like it if the guide had pictures of it also. thanks in advance
Here are two links to simple urban bases:
GW Online : Warhammer 40,000 : Cityfight : Urban Basing
Don't have any others on hand as I only do CoD stuff now for whatever reason
Someone asked this question a few months ago and I responded with this:
First, spread some white glue across the base (I have used a pop sickle stick and an old paintbrush, so whatever you have lying around is fine). Try not to get the glue on the feet of the model, but it isn't a huge deal if you do.
Second, dip the whole base in a tub of sand. Pull it out and shake the extra back into the tub. If you have sand on places you don't want, get it off now before the glue dries and makes it really hard. Let this dry for a while.
Third, paint. Normally you haven't painted the model yet so the sand gets a black basecoat with the model. Since you have painted the model already, paint the sand black. Give it a heavy drybrush of Scorched Brown, a medium drybrush of Graveyard Earth, and a light drybrush of Bleached Bone. Make sure to be neat around the feet and legs of the model or you will have to go back and touch it up.
Fourth, add static grass. Put some glue dabs on the base and then dip the base in a tub of static grass. Shake the extra grass off. Some people say you should blow on the grass to make it stand up but I have never found that to work. Let this dry.
Finally, paint the edge of the base with Graveyard Earth.
This sounds like a lot of work, but the hardest part is painting the sand black; everything else is easy and very much worth the effort. The bases are going to look like anything on the GW website.
The guy I suggested that to seemed to like it, so hopefully you will too.
It really depends on what you want to do with your bases. depending on where they are eg. on an ice planet or in a city.
You really need to be more specific.
WIP tau project coming soon.
There's also this one-
GW Online : Warhammer 40,000 : Space Marines : Basing Space Marine Bikes
It's about bike bases but the ideas are valid for any.
And so is this, just do it on a smaller scale-
GW Online : Warhammer : Terrain Basics
No more NG spearmen, thanks! Now I need some pump-wagons!
