Hi guys, i was kinda torn between placing this topic in here or in modelling, so I hope I chose right
Ok, here's my dilemma: I have a Warhound titan that I have been working on painting since last christmas and i'm about half way done (I know, im a horribly slow painter). Well, I've been thinking about the base, and I've decided that I want it to be a cit-type base. More or less, I'm going to have quite a few other models (just for looks, the Titan is the onl one actually shooting on tabletop games) on its base. I plan to have 2 Sentinels, a single squad of guard w/ a commisar, and 2 buildings. In one building is going to be a sniper, in the other, a heavy weap squad that has 3 mortars. The buildings are an Administratum building and a Sanctum Imperialis. I plan for the base itself to be roughly 1.5 times the size of a keyboard. Here is my question: To cover the 1.5 "keyboards" of base well, and to make it look good, how many of those 40k basing kits should I buy from GW?
If it mentioned the size of the tubs, I could just do some math, but it doesnt, so I dont know how much stuff is in each tub Thank you in advance, I would really appreciate it!

Don't even bother with the basing kits it's to little for such a job, just get yourself a bag of ansd and other stuff at DiY shops, you'll be cheaper that way.
Go to the beach and get a bag of sand. You should be able to get slate from some ones garden or a builders merchent. You may want different grains of sand which you can get from there too.
The basing kits GW sells are super expensive.
With the size of that base, is it going to be solely a display piece? If its going to be a gaming model Id suggest making it a large oval that just encompasses the feet.
I agree that a round or oval base would work best. If the base is too big it will cause problems as you try to deploy it on a table or move it around. You should also consider that if the base is very large it will be likely to break off. Because a Titan is big and heavy a huge base will be more likely to break away from the model.
