Welcome to the forum!

 

Nice job!

As for bases. just glue him to a base of your choice.

You could remove the broccoli base or leave it on.

If you leave it on, hiding it is just a matter of some PVA and flock/sand.

Nice work on the flames!

 

Basing can be as simple or as complicated as you want it to be.  If you want visuals, there are lots of great tutorials on YouTube ranging from the basic to the very detailed.  Unless I need to change the character's setting I usually don't bother cutting away the built-in base.  I usually just glue the figure onto a plastic base and do one of two things:

 

1) If the character is sculpted on some kind of rocky terrain or ruins that can logically be a bit above ground level I just glue some flock or static grass down on the base if I want to keep it simple.

2) If the character is sculpted on a base that seems to be more like generic ground and less like a rocky outcrop I glue the figure down, and then use green stuff to erase the height difference between the plastic base and the figure's built in base.  Then I paint and glue down whatever other accents I need to fit the terrain.

 

If I particularly want the character to look like they're indoors then I usually need to cut or file away the integral base, sculpt a floor onto a plastic base, paint it, and then glue the figure to it.

Nice effects on the sword. And that old paladin? I think I have some of his compatriots in my box of oldies.
