Default What type of basing to use?

I'm painting my Space Marines dark angels green and shining gold. And I'm not sure what color and material to use for my bases, I'd like something pretty simple. What would you guys recommend?

Real sand maybe? It's really simple to make

Did you paint the modeling sand? I suggest glueing a layer of sand down, the painting it s color combination of a dark brown to a light brown i.e. bestial brwon-blewached bone or scorched brown-graveyard earth. Paint the sides in one of the browns you used and once thats all done you glue down some static grass orflock in random clumps over the sand. Thats how GW makes their bases and btw to paint the sand drybrushing is the best method.

I used real sand and rocks, and I didn't paint them. I used some grass too. Here's the result: ;D
