    Could I humbly suggest you take and post new (i.e. closer / better lit / face on) photos so we can make a better judgement?

    The Terminator be hind I don't like the way I based it. The rocks looked smaller before I put them on. If you see the detail on the edges of the BC. I lost that detail with those rocks on the Terminator.

    Does any one have any ideas on how I could base the army better?

    From what I can see, it looks great. Blue looks good with white. The highlights are nicely down and though I cannot see the face in great detail, I can see you have the shading in all the right places. Nice Job.

    As for the base, try using sand flok. It will give that gravel look, without over doing it.

    A couple of things occur, which I haven't yet tried myself.

    First, be careful if you intend using real rock for any basing. Because this adds lots of mass to the model as a whole, any accidents such as dropping it/sweeping it off a table edge could be far more disastrous to your fragile mini than if it was on a light plastic base.

    Anyway, get some aluminium foil (baking foil). Make up some fresh Green Stuff (or use Squadron Putty etc. Milliput would be great because you can add a little warm water and it becomes very soft indeed. I don't know if you can do that with Green Stuff.)

    Put a thin layer of putty on a small bit of foil and crinkle it up. Unwrap it and put the sticky side of putty face down on your base (obviously the figure to be attached at a later point). Try and get a domed cross-section profile so the middle of the base has thicker putty and the edges very little. Let it dry and cure fully. Peel off the foil. You should be left with a three dimensional crinkled rocky effect on the base. This might take a bit of experimentation and practice to get right, but should be excellent. And Light!

    Also, look at bits of cork (dismember a wine bottle cork), and go into any Railway Modelling shops and check them out. Remember you are not limited to Games Workshop products here!

    It has a formed base from plumbers putty. Iformed it on the plastic base and then shapped it with the ruff edges.

    I like the base gor the brother captsain and the paint job...so far , but some better pictures would be nice.
    This is the best picture my old dig camera will take. For some reason I can't get any closer to it and keep it in focus.

    Fair play on the putty job. But to add an interesting 'random faceted' texture, try the crumpled foil, or take a rubber/molten wax mold of a real broken rock, dust it with talcum powder to aid releasing it, and use that to impress the soft putty.

    The distance on your photos is okay, especially the top shot (thats closer, surely). But try lighting them better, preferably with diffuse daylight. And show us the front detail, not the top!

    If you want to get it closer with a dig camera use the portrait mode and just use the camera on something stable (Such as a chair) and then just point the camera at the mini!
