GW seems to like turquoise very very much, and, at Michael's, I found a pack of them in the mosaic tile section. The shapes are flat and slablike, suitable for basing. Maybe paint the top of the base in gold, then place a piece of turquoise on it. A pack is about $5 before coupon. The jewelry section also may have these gemstones you can add to the base, to complement the paint scheme of the miniature.

I'm intrigued. Can you show how it looks?
I've been loitering as to basing my Silver Tower miniatures, because I have no idea what to do. The art on the tiles is so diverse that there is no way a base that would match one room would match the next, or so it seems.
I can't take inspiration from GW this time, since they painted them rubble-like, probably to match Age of Sigmar. I'm at the point of leaving them a neutral black.

I haven't started working on them yet (maybe in the next palindromic year) and wasn't able to find an example (most bases are realistic). You can also try the scanned tiles: https://boardgamegeek.com/thread/1633372/basing-scanned-tile...

Do whatever works for you!

Clear bases have some clear (har de har har) advantages over conventional basing: You can see the tile underneath, you never have a mismatched base, and it can be less work. WQ is a little unusual in that the board are all tile designs, rather than the usual terrain. I've had a hard time finding bases that are *designs* rather than "realistic" terrain. This is about as close a pic of clear bases with a Warhammer Quest-like board and miniatures. Not bad, imo.
