Clockwork Angels sunken bases (WIP)

I've been toying with bases for the Clockwork Angels. At first I was going to do the same basing you see on the PP site, but that's not my style. So while I was finishing up the painting I noticed how the two grunts are just gracefully moving at a fast speed the they barely touch the rocks they're attached to. The idea hit me to make sunken bases with realistic water and these two grunts will be moving so fast that they are whispers to the ground, think of it as watching a scene from Crouching Tiger Hidden Dragon.

Here's the progress so far. If you have any questions about what I'm doing, please leave them in the comments below.
I went through my bag of oddities and found some gears and clock bits that I'll add to the bases.
 First step was to hollow the bases. Be careful as you could easily hurt yourself or ruin the base if you not pay attention at this step.
After mixing my putty I cut it into thirds and pressed it into the base leaving a nice cavity. I'll come back after its dried to give it some texture.
Here's one angle testing the height of her rock.
More photos coming soon.
