General question, there are a million ways to set up a base for a model, so how do you like to set up yours? Currently I'm working on marines and am setting up dry lake bed style bases (one of while I even added fur to for a dead animal on the ground).
So, yeah, millions of ways of setting up bases, what kind do you enjoy to model?

Depends on the army.
For my Marines, I use the WH40K Basing Kit a lot (and I mean a lot) for my guys. For my 'nids I like to use snow or grassy themed bases with rocks and smashed bitz on them. And for my Skaven (ah, good ol' Skaven, haven't even bought the 8th Edition Warhammer Rulebook yet) I like to use plain grass, I can't afford special basing with so many models!
Hey,Wartorn. Wartorn and quick! Okay, cheap, wartorn and quick -How do you like to do your bases?
Parakeet gravel + PVA, paint black, drybrush grey/ brown. Done.
I could always add frou-frou bits and bobs later, but it's not a priority.
About parakeet gravel -
Quartz grit + pulverised sea-shell + charcoal pellets.
It's screened such that what might ordinarily be characterised as "sand" is removed.
I find it exactly the right size - and with a wide variety of component "shapes" - to be complementary but unobtrusive.
Plus, it's nice that a lifetime supply can be had for under a dollar ...
Parakeet grit for bases?Havent thought of that...
I havent done my bases save for one of my minis.I used static grasses and some rocks from a farm.
But i want to model one base with a dead chaos marine on it.
Praise be to the Emperor!!
