Basing your miniatures is often the final step to really finish off your miniatures. The problem is that after you've take so much time to paint your miniature, you're really tired and basing is generally the last thing you want to think about. Most folks default to the green/brown earth/flock scenario, which is perfectly fine. But not every battle should be fought on mother earth. Some battles are waged in the ruins of the 41st millenia.
So, how to kill two birds with one stone. The answer is texturing your paint! Textured paint is nothing new. GW sells it. Let me save you a little time and money. It's sand. It's just sand, grit, or ballast mixed into the paint.
So, how do we make our own textured paint? Well, this should come as no shock, we add it in ourselves.
First, add some paint to the container. Darker is usually better, because then you can dry brush up to create texture. In this case I use a dark grey paint.
