  1. I found a tutorial for mud bases. I thinking about make a grass bases for my blood bowl nun team, but the grass is broken with muddy areas. But if the nuns are playing on such a dirty place, they should look more muddy. Does anyone have a tutorial to create clothes and skin with mud on it. Or has example interesting example pictures with a short explanation?
  2. Bake Your Own Basius – Base Stamps 4 Wargames Miniatures is another line of base stamps similar to the ones from Happy Seppuku. Main difference appears to be that the impressions are a bit deeper and the stamp is made of resin. I'm tempted by the Mountain Ranges, Ruined Imperial Highway, and Mountain Ranges, but they are pretty pricey (partly because of shipping from the UK). Ron
  3. So I was working on a mini today and thought a wave would be an awesome base. I thought it was neat if there were base pieces made out of the colored plastic. Blue waves, red fire, green acid etc...
  4. Hello forum folks I have not been painting anything the last half year or so, as my left elbow and lower arm have not been working properly, ligament problems leaving me unable to hold anything small still for any length of time, or at all. But it is getting better, and I have been getting a lot of prepwork done on of alot of the masses and masses of minis that have arrived, fulfilling the last years kickstarters. The Kings of War and Reaper Bones has been delivered and are now complete, and the third and last Dreadball shipment is probably in the mail, leaving me with more minis than spa
  5. Hello everyone! Just got some of the green stuff and thought I'd share what I'm doing with it. At first I was just going to use it for improving the bases of my minis, but I quickly realized I'll be using it to mod some of them and eventually do full on figures of my own. First up, I made some rocks for this wizard's base: Next, after finding that working with the stuff is so fun, I decided to make a lil' skull: And for fun, here are a couple of digital sculpts I did when I first got ZBrush earlier in this year. An orc head, and a Chinese style dragon that I got frustrated with and di
  6. When rebasing Bones should you use a pin or could you just superglue the figure to the base? On my first Bones figure, the Bugbear, I used a pin. Drilling the plastic was easer than drilling metal, but I found it took aa bit more care to ensure the hole was straight and of the desired depth because the bit cut so quickly. It turned out fine, but I was wondering how well the pin will hold it's place in the plastic foot and, if given how little the mini weights, if it is worth the bother of pinning rather than simply super gluing the figure to the base. I will appreciate your thoughts
  7. Some of these minis are done, but most I'm still working on, which is why this is in WIP. These started as plain flat bases except for the little green and grey one in the middle, which is an RAFM mini with a nicely-sculpted but too narrow base which I glued to a penny. The two on the far right are Reaper minis I glued to one-inch fender washers. The rest of them are Hasslefree minis on the slotted plastic bases that came with them, 25mm except for the little girl who is on a 15mm base. The three on the left have asphalt-effect, which I did by stippling with a small round
  8. I'm generally not a huge fan of fancy basing, but I thought it would be a nice treat to put the minis I paint up as the PCs for my upcoming D&D game on some custom bases. However, no one seems to sell pre-made bases for fewer than six at a go (most places I've found sell packs of ten) and I was hoping to be able to pick a different style of base for each mini, as appropriate. Does anyone offer such a service, either selling individual bases or mix-and-match packs of a given size?
  9. I'm looking to get some 1 inch square bases for my bones figures and noticed that the 12 pack of bases are $4.99 and a single base is 25 cents, so if I buy them separately it comes to $3, I was wondering why its cheaper to buy them separately then in a pack? here are the links to the bases http://www.reapermini.com/OnlineStore/Bases/sku-down/74056 http://www.reapermini.com/OnlineStore/Bases/sku-down/74015
  10. What are you going to do for basing on the Bones KS figures? Litko? GF9? Secret Weapon? Nothing?

  14. These are relatively new and look like a fun choise for undead or other planar creatures.. http://microartstudio.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=1&t=20402
  15. Can anyone help me with a suggestion as to where to buy round, plastic unslotted 25 mm bases? I found some years back but don't remember the manufacturer. I wish I had bought more at the time. Now I'm having trouble finding a source for more.
  16. Hi all, I haven't ever made a base for my miniature before. I was thinking of creating a wooden saloon floor for my Huckster (Western Gambler) mini. Does anyone have any tips on how to go about doing that? Do I use sculpy to create the floor? Thanks in advance, ~TxGator
  17. Not sure if I am posting in the right board, as it's my first post. First off, I just thought I'd mention that this forum is fantastic and I've learnt so much already just from lurking. I've noticed that some minis are glued to bases with no visible edge. (The edge I am talking about is visible in models on inset bases such as Chammady, Grey Maiden, or Freebooter's Master Assassin.) I want to avoid this edge so that the top surface of the base extends as far as the bottom of the base. I have seen this effect achieved by two methods. Style 1 seems to be one-piece bases made entirely
