Default Forest bases?

My new Dwarf Mordheim/Empire in Flames warband will have a lumberjack-background, therefore it will not only feater dwarf chainsaws, but forest bases, as well.

Now, my big problem now is: How do I build and paint a forest base? The immediate answer, of course, would be green; but, well... forest floor ISN`T green. it is brown/black, with roots, decomposing stuff and so on.

So, how do I best represent this?

Thanks in advance,
-Bone

I would get some flock/static grass ... and make moss on ceilings and roofs and corners ... wherever they seem fit. Have a broken trees, and stumps .... uhmm i don't really understand what you mean by forest "base"

I would recommend you put sand on them , paint it bestial brown , give it a heavy wash of a darker brown , add patches of static grass. This will give you a base to work up from and that is how I based my tau which can be seen here(don't put as much grass on as me , do some areas with grass and some without I'd say)

I would then recommend looking through the spice rack for any herbs and such that you could use as leaves which might give you bit of an autumn theme if you wanted.

Other ideas include greenstuff tree stumps/roots and also you could use really sticks and break them down to size , so they look like logs.

Hope this helps.

Well, I`m talking about the things miniatures stand on - the bases.

@Rapouc: Thanks for the help, your bases look great. I`ll try this one.
