I have no clue where to put this so I'll put it here. Mods feel free to move it. I want to do a better job on basing but there seems to be a trick to it, I've seem many of you do nice bases, with gravel and little grass. Do you guys base, prime, then paint the basing? Then grass is added afterwards? Also whats a good method for doing grass anyways? Suggest on forest type basing?
Best piece of advice I can give you in regard to basing is to think of it as part of the model as you are constructing the whole thing and not just as an afterthought. So yes ... put together the basing minus any last additions such as static grass or snow and then prime and paint them with the figures. Add static grass or snow after. You could do the static grass before and paint it - really up to you.
as far as static grass and snow goes. i would suggest doing that after the model is painted and finalised. with my luck i end up with weeirdly colored grass or orange snow :rolleyes:

You can put the static grass on beforehand and prime and paint it with the rest of the model. You definitely get a much different look to it this way. Really it is up to the person doing the job how they want to go about it.
I agree though that with the various snow mixtures it is usually best to put that on last. Just about any other basing material though can be put on, primed and painted with the figure.
