Nice work! Perhaps you can describe how you work too? Step by step pictures as well maybe.

using my mobile in the hotel hall now so impossible :) to do, bu will be home on monday and got some minis to paint, so surly will figure sth out.

the most important thing is to have (for me) a lot of primers. not only black. a lot of brushes B-) and , well, a lot of time hhe.

prime. basic colors. specific colors. dip or shade. basing. paint adjustments.
that js the process

for some miniatures like dragons wyrms and all big beasts i do use mix of spray primers and paints. gives good effect.

i am not using airbrush so need to work with the stuff i got.

for some minis i was using dipping method,for some ink shading. dipping takes longer but leaves light colors untouched somewhat. ink by army painter leaves dirty film on minis. all whites, skin gets dirty. like on zombicide minis above

i have used ink for zombies. i got no photo yet. but zombies are dirty :) so it doesnt matter

So after looking at these again and again...I must say that I am rather curious as to how you do your bases. They all look really clean and not just simple paint on them.
It's a typo...

well, again, I use Army painter products. I just like them.
I do paint base in black, than put glue on it, see photos.

Next step is to put rocks or grass on it , plus add some extras (Games Workshop this time).
Next step would be adding grass and finishing base with red/white color for the master/minion.

Sometime you need pumice for the base. I have used it for Ice Wyrm from Tomb of Ice (Descent).
Will post photos later to show you how it looks like/works

skolo, what do think about the basing kits sold by Basecrafts?  Some of their crystal rocks and glitter rocks look like they'd be excellent for the elementals, or maybe even the skeleton captains.

Personally - since I didn't go Double Captain (Sorry, Auctorium!  :P) - I don't think I'll be doing many custom bases.  I don't want my minis to look weird standing in a patch of grass in the middle of carpeted dungeons, or standing on a stepping stone in the middle of the woods.

Don't listen to anything I say.  I'm still a n00b.

to be honest I`m not a fan of using premade bases. Not for normal gamers, boradgames and skirmish. If you do that for tournaments or you`re an artist that want to show it somewhere - that is ok. For just plain gaming its not necessary to spend 1usd for one base, with 150 minis, its kind of expensive  8)
