Unusually for a "test miniature" post, it's not the paint job or colour scheme on the miniature itself that's the test. The customer sent me a painting recipe from Forge World which I've followed exactly, with the exception of adding on another level of highlights to make sure he gets his moneys worth out of me. Instead, what's being tested out here is a selection of bases to go with the painting recipe.

Adding blood, rust, chipping and the like to the base (or even the miniature itself) is an option as well.
