Gunpla for a beginner

So /m/, I'm running an RPG for some friends with a Gundam theme. We've just got to the point where they got their Gundams, and I decided to go with Buster and Duel Gundam from Seed (as I wanted to pick designs they haven't seen before, and one of them has seen some of UC).
Anyway, before the next session in three weeks, I want to get a model of Duel AS and Buster, but I don't know which to get.
Years ago I build some Gundam Wing models, but I remember they were very poor without being painted. This puts me off. I do have some citadel paints though, and I see you can get "Gundam Markers" now?
So I was going to buy the two 1/144 kits, so I guess I should ask...
Anything I should know that would be useful?
Should I get markers or will I be OK doing a wash with diluted black citadel paint?
Where can I get those flying bases you often see Gunpla pictured with? As I'd like two of those too!
