One of the most important, yet often overlooked aspects of building you army is having a cohesive basing system for your army. All of my 40k Orks are based in the same way. I wanted to change it up a bit for my Ironjawz, so I decided on a dungeon floor, ruined structure look. I used a similar approach on some of my Deffskullz with a different color scheme.
To do this simple style base, you will need the following items:
A sheet of plasticard (I used an old sign)
Skavenblight Dinge (GW)
Warpfiend Grey (GW)
Underbelly Blue (P3)
Step 1: Cut your plasticard.
Using the hobby knife, score the plasticard in straight lines. It doesn't need to be perfect because of the weathering and chips we will add. Snap the plasticard along the scoring to create a nice "cut".
|More or less the same size|
|Looks straight enough for me!|
After your primer is dry you can begin the easy dry-brushing. Start with Skavenblight Dinge, this can be a really heavy dry-brush. Then use Warpfiend Grey paying close attention to the edges of the tiles. Finally, you use a very light bit of Underbelly Blue for the final highlights.
If you would like, you could hit it with a wash before your final highlight, but I didn't feel the need to. When I add the model to the base, I scrape off the paint at the contact points soI am gluing directly to the plastic instead of the paint.
