I have only 1 question when do we use foundation
If you are talking about foundation paints, then usually you use them as the basecoat, afer spraying the model. This is because they give a nice coverage.

The foundation paints are designed to be painted as the first coat of your painting after the primer (hence the name). They have a high enough concentration that it takes very few coats to get even, smooth coverage, even when painting bright colors such as red or yellow over black.
No, you don't NEED them, but they help. A lot.
They're actually really useful, I especially like Iyanden Darksun, Calthan Brown and Mechrite Red but they're all cool.
I've found both the foundation paints and the washes really useful- particularly on rank and file minis

It is amazing how well a model that is done in this simple way [Foundation paint->wash->highlight] can turn out so good, my local GW did this on the store lizard men and the stegadon looks awesome!
