I presume you're trying to base your models so they look like they're on sand? If the sand is of a smaller grain it doesn't matter, the models are of a smaller scale than real life so theoretically the sand should be too. WolfRaider is right though, use anything that you want and feel looks good.

I must agree with the other people here...
Any sand will do fine, but if puttung some extra effort into modelling spesific surfaces like desert or gravel theme, you should use different "size" sand.
In my own experience I feel that the smaller the the grain of the sand, the more difficult it is to put detail into it... it genereally turns out into one monotone colour.
Don't use sand with a too rough grain either, sure you can put an enourmous amount of detail into this type, but it simply doesn't look good. Generally I use a sand supplied to model railway enthusiasts. It has an ok grain, slightly rough but not rough, and at the same time with the possebility of putting some work into the painting and decoration of the bases and terrain.
