    So, I'm trying to decide on basing for my tomb kings.

    I was originally going to cut out marble vynil to fit thier bases and have them stand on that. Then I thought this would be A) to uniform and B) just look like they were standing on vynil.

    Other options include any of my usual textures.

    I had thought about cracked earth, but figured this would look wrong for skellies
    Unfortunately I don't have any basic, squarish tiles.

    I have an Egyptian themed texture, but it is a wall decoration, and I wouldn't want the army to be standing on slabs of it.

    Otherwise I have no idea, would there be an easy way to show "fighting in a desert city"?

    Sand....

    Rock sand...

    Rocky cracked earth sand...

    You could paint marble using a sponge pretty easily, that'd mix it up a bit. Do that and throw some sand on top of it.

    Cracked earth and sand is pretty much all I got for you for deserts...

    "decodadeco" ??? :confused:

    You could probably paint the plastic base to like somewhat like cut sandstone,
    and then glue on some fine sand in small piles.

    I have that. It's one of the textures I use in my business. Good tool.
