  1. Tiny Furniture's "Inserts 25mm - Village garbage" is a five-piece set of 1" circular garbage base inserts for your miniatures. They may also be used as terrain, objective markers, etc, with or without bases. Like Tiny Furniture's other miniatures, they have the high level of detail you expect, and can be painted easily by beginner players. Like Tiny Furniture's "Dungeon Garbage", the miniature bases have an assortment of garbage suitable for dungeons, city states, and villages. Each heap pile is a collection of smaller distinct items, so, like "Dungeon Garbage" you have the option of giving as
  2. Designs include cobblestone, cobblestone, green 40K, and yeah I'll pick up more cobblestone. Made in the USA. Economic disruption in China has shut down non-essential production, including plastic injection figures.

  3. I put in for a bag on the Black Friday sale, because ever since I was a kid, I had a certain fascination with the surprise element of grab bags ... and there's something especially fun about the assortment of random bits from SWM: "How can I make use of this oddball base / terrain bit?" Basically, the story behind the "Bag o' (Crud)" (that's not what it's actually called, but Wendy would be disappointed in me if I used that word in casual conversation) is that it's a bag of whatever assorted bits are on hand that aren't quite up to Secret Weapon Miniatures's usual production standards -- s
  4. Since Bryan has shut down the Basius 2 Kickstarter thread and asked that we continue any discussion with how to use these Stamp Pads in the Craft Section. I've opted to go ahead and open this thread. This is a group/open thread for us to learn how to use our pads and obtain best practices with all the different kinds of basing materials that are available to us. Please feel free to share how you did something (with pictures) and what material(s) you used. Keep off-topic chatter to a minimum so that the thread doesn't get out of control. Most of all... Have fun! First off, the
  5. https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/416262521/scenic-resin-bases-for-28mm-tabletop-wargame-minia?ref=discovery After a successful 1st kickstarter project earlier in the year I am back with a second. This time I am looking to extend my existing range of 28mm scenic bases with 3 further lines. I already make bases as part of my business and have paved bases, lava bases etc. along with various bits of terrain in my range already. Moonkraft is a fairly new start up and I am looking to add many many more goodies to what I already sell. I have a brain overflowing with ideas
  6. This is another clix project. I picked up a bunch of plastic figures for cheap, cut them off the original clicky base, and made new ones. The bases are by Reaper, turned over and filled with putty and then stamped. Simple base coat and wash and those were done. A few of the figures got paint touch ups to clean them up and bring them all together in a blue and black color scheme. They've been sprayed and are ready for the table.
  7. 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
  8. Do you still sell the box of 250 square smooth bases? I bought one a while ago and it's almost empty. I looked on the site but I can't find it anywhere. I even tried looking up the sku on the box I have. Thanks.
  9. https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/wamp/fusion-bases Fusion bases offer a quick and easy way to create great display quality wargaming miniature bases and plinths with little effort.
  10. 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 mounte
  11. So, finally getting started on some of the ideas i had from the replies in my last post and some techniques that will be BLATANTLY ripped off from posters of said ideas (thanks and sorry in advance Pingo if i butcher your technique in the tweaking of it). For our campaigns end game battle i found a model i thought would fit the bill. Its base has some almost rune patterns that i wanted to pop and be seen. i'm not looking for lava because ... that doesnt fit to me with something that has been "summoned", but i want high contrast of what i'm sure will be the stone floor of the secret chapel deep
  12. Anyone have any tips for making good bases for miniatures?
  13. 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.
  14. https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/1701708364/warlocks-tower-wargaming-bases Calling all wargamers! We’re introducing a brand new range of scenic, plastic bases for round-based wargaming.
  15. https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/dragonforge/oakk-wood-floors-base-sets?ref=category_newest Dragon Forge Design Brings you a new set of Wood Floor Round Lip Bases . Includes 30, 40, 50, 80 and 120 mm sizes plus Heroic Sets.
  16. More from the Memorial Day paint binge challenge. These are made by Scibor and I thought they were cool just by themselves. I painted them up to use as scatter terrain or objective markers. The bases are 1" square.
  17. In a gaming Facebook group I'm a part of, someone asked a question - do you prefer plain black bases, or detailed terrain bases? The question seemed obvious to me. When I started painting miniatures, bases were either broccoli or square, and a plain black base was looked at as an unfinished base. At the very least you sanded and drybrushed or flocked them. The answers in the group surprised me. Out of dozens of answers, the overwhelming majority preferred plain bases. They felt that detailed bases took away from the miniature, and that it was counter-immersive to be playing a game and
  18. This thread is a place to share images of and ideas for materials to use on bases and dioramas. Remember, no commercial links. The goal is to share ideas and show what we have on hand. INDEX Aryanun's photo of basing supplies. George's flock and grass thread.
  19. I've had a few people asking me about how I based my Bones in my W.I.P. thread, so tutorial time! Although this is a tutorial, I'm still new to the World of minis and mini painting and basing myself, and this is just things I've learned through tinkering and looking at things other people have done. You may have a better way of doing things, this is just how I've been basing my new Bones minis. I have two tutorials here, one for basing Bones onto pre-made bases with pins and one to incorporate the existing broccoli base onto a plain plastic base with green stuff. Pinning Bones onto pre-mad
  20. Here are some cool PDF files for basing: News Papers, Magazines, Beer Cans, Waning Signs On page 55: more News Papers, Magazines, Cans, DVD's and others Oh, important, on page 54 you can see how you can make Coke Cans with a Q-Tip!!!! Different Police Lines and Warning Signs (does not work anymore) If you do know more similiar Documents or Pictures, please post them!!!
  21. almost funded.. 13 days left https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/poweredplaygaming/poweredbases-plugandplay-led-kits-for-minis-and-sc/posts Our kits make it super simple to add the effects you want. Just drill your holes, run your wires, and plug it in. No more soldering! No more electrical engineering. Just simple lighting options to make your pieces stand out without the headache. Got something that you’ve always wanted to light, but it can only fit a watch battery? We’re building upon our past successful LED launches, and filling the gap for small vehicle and model lighting kits
  22. Every Friday night the family ... Grandmother (my mother), my family (me: 44, the fiancee, and my two kids: 22/20 yo), and my Sister's family (her: 42 and possibly her two kids: 19/10) ... get together and play board games (or dice games/card games). Last week after a two-night Talisman event where everyone was duking it out for the Crown at the end ... I decided to take the figures from the game home with me and set to work on them. So first, I dipped into my bucket o' tiles and ensured all of the figures were stabilized. Each of the included bases were warped in some fashion. So super gl
  23. I've been considering different and cost effective means to base the 500 or so figures I am getting next month from the Bones Kickstarter. I have a ton of tile samples from an architect that cleared out their old stuff. However the majority aren't square or are smaller than 1" square. I have access to slate from sidewalks breaking apart around the neighborhood. Seriously. Got about 5-10 pounds of the stuff of varying thicknesses. Makes a nice display base for the figures. You can see it on my two posted show off miniatures; Stone Giant Warrior & Thornback Troll. But 500+ f
  24. I did a rough tabletop paint job on this guy while I was building bases. I decided to base him up in an equally quick fashion, since I am not a big fan of broccoli bases. So, in the spirit of spreading what little knowledge I possess I will do a build along WIP on some quick and dirty graveyard bases. I will do two bases out of different materials, and I will list all materials and steps so anyone who wants can build along. You don't need all the materials I list, and you can make this work with pretty much anything you have on hand. C&C encouraged. Materials: Square or round base
  25. I agreed to show a couple of people how I build my not-quite-stunning bases during the con. If anyone else wishes to partake I don't have any problem showing as many people as are interested. I will be bringing my entire basing kit with me. I will try to bring a good amount of cork, and broken Sculpey with me. However, if you wish to do some putty bases (Green Stuff, Miliput, etc) please bring your own, since I have a limited amount with me. Also bring any bases you wish to use, since again I will only be bringing a limited number with me. I will be demonstrating on 30mm round and 1" square ba
