So, I am painting some figures for an upcoming skirmish type wargame, with terrain and everything (Frostgrave to be exact).
However I have been pondering whether I should base my minis or leave them as they come out of the box (as can be seen here).
I am usually all for basing and believe that even a simple snow covered base (as can be seen here) makes a huge difference but the Frostgrave book itself had me wondering since none of the figures depicted there are based.
So, what would your suggestion be? This is my first time as a wargame/skirmish gamer and I would like to hear your thoughts on this.
Would it be better to have small and simple non-bases since they fit better on terrain features like stairs or ledges..
Or large (proper) bases are better for stability and/or aesthetic purposes?

He was a middle aged man carrying books under his arms and on a bundle slung across his shoulder. Many bobs and bits dangled on ropes attached to his body. He was out of breath and looked as if he really wanted to be somewhere else.
-You must be Master Barius' apprentice. Rufus was it?
-Good, good.. I have urgent business with your master. Please take me to him.
After a longbut uneventful journey they finally reached the gates of the gardens of Barius' Tower. It was a high tower made of ivory with no apparent windows or doors.
-This way, Mi'lady.
Once they were inside the tower, Finarri was surprised to find it to be much more spacious than it seemed from outside.
-Magic.. she muttered under her breath, her unease increasing yet her mission urging her to go on.
-Is that you Rufus? Have you found the tomes? All of them, yes?
Spoke the old wizard without raising his head from the ancient book he was leaning on.
-Ehem.. Master, you have a visitor.
There was a long and unnerving silence and the old man finally raised his head and looked at Finarri as if realizing she was there for the first time.
-Hmm.. so it seems we have a visitor Rufus. Why haven't you told me before?
-But I ... oh nevermind. This is Lady Finarri from the High Temple, master. She is a..
-A Paladin, yes, yes.. I can.. feel it.. So, Lady Paladin.. what brings you to my Tower?
Well, having been bitten by the Frostgrave bug it seems that I have evolved from boardgaming to the wargaming episode of my life. I have started by getting and painting my wizard and apprentice to some semblance of a tabletop quality..
Well, said too much already. Thanks for looking and C&C is always appreciated.
I've had these for over 2 years and never got around to painting them. Sigh..
But, thanks to one Frostgrave scenario that calls for six statues, I realized I could hit two (or six) birds with one stone and voilà!
Bases are cork and attached to the mini bases with poster putty since when they activate they can come down from their plinths.

Sculpted by Tre Manor
I painted this one in an effort to cross two or three lines together; 1800 trapper, Final Fantasy wizard and Nordic(in terms of the way Tre Manor sculpted it). I wanted to try some OSL on this one so I went with making his eyes glow. I was "o.k" with the way it turned out. The base is a metal base from a set I got in the Box-of-goodwill a few boxes ago. I'm on a NMM kick right now so no TMM on this one. Over all I am luke-warm with out this turned out. The matte varnish (Vallejo) kind of glossed up for some reason when I sealed it... You live and learn. Hope you like it.
