About this project
Because the best bits of your miniature collection are the bits you sculpt yourself
We want to put a special BASIUS COMMUNITY pad in the hands of every tabletop gaming club in the world
Since launching our first BASIUS Kickstarter project (now known as BASIUS ONE), thousands of gamers have used BASIUS to aid & develop their sculpting skills as well as customise & awesomify* their miniature collections. During this time we have had to move BASIUS out of the garage and into the Industrial Estate! The BASIUS team has grown since then, and now includes the same family of four sculpting gamers that created BASIUS all those years ago and the family of experienced casters at History Craft.
We now have ten complete collections of 12 themed 50mm square BASIUS pads prototyped. Some are favourites from previous Kickstarter projects, some have been altered and updated, and the rest are brand new. We need your help to fund their creation on an industrial scale!
Community is important - in gaming, just like in the rest of life.
We love gaming with our friends in our local geek-hobby store and we initially met many of our friends purely because of that community. Friendly gaming clubs and hobby stores that go out of their way to host gaming communities are awesome, and we want to help to increase that community awesomeness.
Kevin Jackson, from the online community, sent us this photo showing how he based his miniatures using BASIUS It stands to reason that if a person wants to do something positive for others in life then it's best to do something they are actually good at, and feedback from all four of our previous BASIUS projects has shown us that we have become rather good at BASIUS-ing**.
With this focus of community being central to what BASIUS has become, our goal for this latest Kickstarter is quite a big one... Alongside the release of our 10 themed BASIUS collections, we want to provide every tabletop gaming club in the world with a special BASIUS COMMUNITY pad, so that all gamers can use it and help each other to use it, to develop their own and each other's sculpting.
WE NEED YOU
It would be awesome if every gamer & hobbyist reading this... in every town worldwide, could pledge to get hold of a pad or two in this kickstarter, make some bases with them, show their sculpting to their gaming club and ask their club chairperson to contact us to get a BASIUS COMMUNITY pad for their club.
Tyler, from the online community, kindly sent us this photo. These base textures are made using just BASIUS, 'Green-Stuff' and paint - thats it.
About this project
NOTE: Additional sizes are coming. Such as 30mm, 32mm, 50mm and 120mm. There will also be more themes as the Kickstarter moves along.
So many ways to paint these Bases. I can't wait to see what you come up with. - Add-on's stick well (Skulls, tuff, grass, and more)
-No need for pinning. Glue works amazing.
-All primers that I have used work great.
-Can be magnetized.
-Can be stripped if you want to repaint. Careful on what you strip with though.
-Can be mounted on elevated surfaces (if you want to build a bigger base)
-Green Stuff and other epoxies stick well, but stick great after primer.
BE SURE to check out the Stretch Goals
So I have Kahnjira and it's slowly coming together my big problem though is it just will not stand straight up on the base. Whenever I attach the model to the base it just tips over. I've tried boiling the base to make sure it was flat and as far as I can tell it is as flat as I can get it. So my question is, is there a way to use something to put up under on the inside of the base or something to mount the base to that will help? Any suggestions as to what I might use to do either of these is greatly appreciated as well.
