    • Only started basing regularly this past year. And mostly what I've been using have been the round, plastic bases that were included in the Reaper kickstarters. Generally I just use them on minis that have trouble standing on their own with a little bit of green stuff and some light flocking. Occasionally I'll use a 2 or 3 inch base to make something more scenic.    Earlier this year I managed to get a bag of crap from Secret Weapon that included a large number of scenic, resin bases. I've only used them a handful of times, but really like them so far. So that's probably going to be a thing for me going forward.   Nice thing is that I'm only making minis for a TTRPG that doesn't get hung up on base size, so no issues with using bases of varying shapes and sizes. 
    • I have made glazes with oil paints. There are water soluble oil paints although I don’t like them very much. I thin my oils with mineral spirits.
    • How many cannons does the ship come with? Will we need to buy cannons from somewhere else?       buckyball
    • This should be my last add for Bones 5:   Power Up: Hippocampus Figurehead Option x1 Option: Song of the Sirens x1 Opton: Kaiju Chaos x1 Base Boss 1" Round RPG Bases x1   This was added on top of my previous haul: Bones 5 Core Set x1 Extra Walls of Stone x1 Extra Walls of Thorns x1 Power Up: Demonic Legion Option x1 Henchwomen x1 Valfuryx x1 Dragon Folk x1 Townsfolk x1 Dragon Bust x1 Aganzarax x1 Troll Bridge Encounter x1 Mammoth x1 Yokai x1 Ballista x1 Goroloth x1 Trebuchet x1 Shavynra the Slayer x1 Storm Giant x1 Rune Wights x1 Arakoth the Ancient x1 Elemental Scions x1 Encounter at Gallowgard x1 The Dwarf King's Crypt x1 Dungeon Dwellers x1 Encounter at Mandupar Pass x1 Option: Encounter - Shadows of Ravenhome x2 Option: Demonic Temptation x1 Kalanzar the Wicked x1 Henchmen and Hirelings x1 Greek Odyssey Expansion x1 Dark Depths Expansion x1 Brinewind Expansion x1 Base Boss 1" Round RPG Bases x3 Chronoscope Expansion x1 Fan Favorites x1  
    • I don't use them that often to be honest.   I appreciate a base that is adapted to a game's map size. Like 1 inch squares for D&D maps or hex shaped for Battletech maps. If my figure is slotted, then I would expect a slotted base. I don't mind recessed if whatever I put on it already fits or can be flipped to avoid it.   One kind I don't like are the smooth or rounded beveled ones. It's a bit of lost space, and if it's a nice miniature, I want to grab it by the base and not the figure itself. Full bevels are hard to grab.
