glue some sand on the bases, paint it grey, then ink it to death with black.(watered down black paint will suffice.) or you could drybrush it.
to add some extra spice, add some weapons that you got from friends, or buy some at an online bitz store. a bolter here, a knive there. i think you get it.
cool, thanks for the help ^_^
if you really wanted to go to town on them then i'd suggest getting some plasticard cutting it into squares then snaping them and then add the sand to the gaps between the cracks.
then you'll have the variation of smooth and rough terrain.

your best bet and to keep from doing huge amounts of work for alot of tyranid bases, is make 5 or 6 - 25 mm round bases, 2 or 3 - 40 mm round bases, and a 60mm round base and that will cover you on bases.
buy a silicon Starter kit from the likes of www.alumilite.com and make a mold and cast your bases you made.
it will cost a little more up fron, but you could possible sell some of those cityfight bases to your local gaming buddies and recoup some of the mold cost.
here is an example of what i did:
i used the alumilite starter kit lid and put my bases in it holding them down with the supplied sulfur free clay, and poured the mixed silicone and let set for 24 hrs.
then followed the directions of the resin. i did 2 different base styles in mine.
also, i used no GW parts in my cast so i can sell mine. i suggest you do the same.
