I've been fooling around with deciding how to base my Blue Moon ECW figures. Despite a good lead or two, I haven't quite come to a definitive conclusion, but maybe this will help someone out: link

My Vote is Vallejo Game color Earth.

I have 25/28mm figures and use a combination of raw umber, dry brushed with burnt sienna then a dry brush of medium beige. All cheap craft paint which goes a long way.

I start my bases with a Desert yellow (Tamiya, Vallejo equivalent or GW) and then some textured paint followed by a wash; tufts and flock after that

My Vote is Vallejo Game color Earth.

I agree but I have done as Fredrick as well and it looks good for summer (ie. very dry) ground.

For 6mm figures I use Vallejo game colour Khaki as it nearly a 100% match for the sand I glue to the base. That way if I miss a spot it doesn't stand out. After that a bit of light flocking and the base is done.
