Question for Sept 14-15:  How do you base your figures? Do you have different styles? Photos of examples are welcome. 

My basing is very simple. my Mechs get a coat of paint on the base then while still wet, get dipped into some flock for a grass effect. Pretty boring really.

I'm not terribly elaborate but I generally don't just stick the mini on a black base and call it done.  Sometimes I'll build a base and sometimes I'll just paint a purchased resin one.

And sometimes I'll just do the grass thing.

I always put a mini in it's environment.

Jungle/Desert/ Snow wherever it is supposed to be.

 

Sometimes I use Resin Scenic Bases, sometimes I use Rollerpins and sometimes I just use flock/snow etc.

Very plainly.

Yes. But none are very exciting.

I have different tubs of basing material, a few shades of flock and a few different grades of sand and fine gravel. Most often it's a simple job of paint the base in glue and dip in whichever I think is most suitable. Sometimes I do a little more detail mixing them or adding grass tufts and larger rocks.

I tried all sorts of things over the years.

 

Now I've settled on two styles, standing on a cork rock with grass tufts:-

My 1", 2", and "small" miniatures get bases using zinc washers bought from home repair stores, with bases sculpted either from clay or Sculpy with Basius pads. 3" bases, I use Reaper's plastic bases, and 4" + I base on wooden bases from art supply stores.

At the moment, I'd argue it's rather basic, but as I get better at it (and y'know, paint more things) I'm steadily adding in a bit more here and there.  Biggest issue right now is I know I need to pick up a few more supplies, such as a wider selection of tufts and various other things, plus practice certain skills.  So at the moment, I'll jokingly say it's cork and/or Vallejo terrain paste.

^First one was a combination of Magic Sculpt (for the very base elements) and a terrain roller, cork "boulders" and railroad flocking...
Second one was a combination of cork sheets, "fine" cork, and cork boulders.

 

I should probably take proper pictures of that Reaver of Kargir and post them :ph34r:

From the sublime to the ridiculous:

I don't do a lot of basing but I'm working on changing that. I have been known to do a snow base or two.

I'm still at a lifetime total of... one. So I don't have a trend or usual habit, though I did purchase plenty of basing material to get into it.

Tabletop figures get a standard black plastic base, filled with greenstuff textured  in theme (defaults are: metal plating for sci fi, brick for Victorian, stone or dirt for medieval). 

 

Display pieces get whatever is appropriate with plants or knickknacks or clutter added.

I like to add scenic or thematic bases to my models, although the degree of effort invested varies from one project to the next. I have done classic cork rocks, Super Sculpey creations and other variations. A lot of my sci-fi projects have also wandered into urban rubble.

 

I don't know that I have good pictures for all of it, but I do have a few:
