Yet again thanks
Yeah pigments achieve the best affect but alternatively you can get a sandy colour paint and do a very fine drybrush on the bases? There is a bit of information about it in the How to PaintCitadel Miniature book by GW if you have acces to a copy?

If you do use pigments you will need to seal it yes. I personally use Vallejo satin varnish, it seals the minis nicely without changing the actual shine of the model (unlike gloss of matte varnish)

Yep all varnishes should be. In fact I do most of the time as there is less risk of any frosting than can occur by putting it through an airbrush at too high a pressure. Just make sure you wash the brushes thoroughly afterward
