I want a new base for a fledgeling Tau army that I have plans for, and I thought hey, LO will have some good idea's. But I failed to find a stickey post with a whole bunch of idea's and/ or links to baseing idea's. I've found some random threads and a bunch of people talking about basing (recently LN got some amazing snow base results with help from minus t I think it was) but unless I'm looking in the wrong place (which is a distinct posibility) I couldn't find any one topic. I'm sure this thread won't take off but here is a couple of youtube video's that I found to be really helpful in basing my models...
YouTube - MiniWarGaming Warhammer Bases: The Basics
YouTube - Warhammer 40k Basing Tutorial
YouTube - How To Base Warhammer Miniatures
And the one I found best is...
YouTube - Baseing
Made my urban base, turned out awesome from him.
So some tips..
Use old sprue's for a muletitude of things, crystals, ruins, etc.
Use ink to hold the rocks into place.
Use rocks over just basic flock (IMO anyway) .
Dry brush several layers, it helps to fix colours when going from darker to lighter.
I hope some other people can at least add some idea's for my own personal Tau basing use...
