- cut rubble bits and glue them to your bases. I used grid pattern plastic card to produce tiles, as well as old tank bits, and sprues.
- prime black
- dry brush with a mixture of black and bleached bone (or the foundation paint closest to it) The idea is to make a dirty grey rather than a white/black grey.
- Dry brush with a very light amount of bleached bone or the foundation of your choice. Try not to over do it. I use a bleached bone/Deheneb stone mixture.
- Use a heavy wash of devlan mud. These new washes are awesome!
- Once dry create your own wash using blazing orange. I use a Tamaya acrylic paint thinner x-20A. The idea is to have a very diluted wash. Paint this carefully onto mechanical bits or along sprue pieces. This will look like rust when dry. I use a lot of broken gears on my bases, so this really pulls them out of the muddy/grey backdrop.

HOW TO:Ruined City Basing 40k
I am busy building and basing an imperial guard army. Since I am combining Cadians, Steel Legion, Vostroyan, and original guard models, I need a strong base design to pull them all together.
