Discussion area for all things Reaper. Do you have an idea for a new figure you'd like to see? Have a general company policy question? Do you want to gush about how cool you think we are? This is the forum for you.
We love watching you work. If you have a piece that's incomplete that you simply need advice on, or if you want to take us on a step by step journey through your process for your new dragon, all WIPs are welcome here.

Back when, we used sections of thin plywood or cut vinyl tile (which can have the advantage of being self adhesive, if you get place and press). Now, if I wanted something of that sort, I would purchase a unfinished wood plaque from a craft store, or a section of raw wood and rout the edges with my Dremel or a palm sized router. Takes a little practice, but nice results.You can also get thin sheets or shapes of PVC at most craft or model railroad stores/suppliers. Not really a question of CAN it be done now, just a question of HOW you want to do it and YOUR skill/craftsmanship level. I have even used transparent glass tiles for basing material (1"x1"x1/2"). For me, preformed plastic bases are a convenience, not a necessity.
Note: if you choose to use glass or smooth ceramic tiles, the best adhesives I have found are the Lok-tite and Gorilla brand 2 part epoxies.
For a recessed base, I would probably just pin a lip onto an existing base. Easier to build up than cut down, IMO.
Box was waiting for me when I got to work this morning (a shame when you have to have packages sent to you at work, but they brighten up a work day) and I wasted no time. I chose the Duskwarden, the River Widow, and a wee velociraptor for my minis. Topped those off with a pair of paints that caught my eye through the bubble wrap they were in and a skull barrel that lost its integrity.
Planning on getting the BoGW back on the road Monday.
