Basing all those Bones Kickstarters

Thats a good idea. My poor small metal ones are about the size of the current regular marines. I recently got a finecast terminator librarian in a random lot and it was (slight hyperbole here) like comparing a marine and a dreadnought!

I plan on playing with my Hirst Arts molds.

 

I have several that will work nicely for basing and if I do not fill the mold completely, it will not be quite as thick.

 

I use Die Keen dental stone, as it is the strongest one that I can find.

 

Once I get a few castings done, I will take a few pictures.

So, correction to my earlier post about galvanized washers for basing; I picked up a box of 100 washers for $9.99 USD for the 1" and the 1.5" sizes, putting the cost at $0.10 each. I'm not likely to go through the 1.5" washers in my lifetime, but they look good under the larger models, like the troll and ogre. I also picked up a few 2" washers for some of the really big ones, like the girffon of the giants. Altough the male storm giant might have too wide of a stance for even that size.

Just ordered my bases today, realising that I hadn't gotten any yet and the Bones could be here next month. I opted for the 25mm square lipped bases from em4; they work out at about NZ 10c each and I figure I just need to cut down the integral base to fit, then fill the rest of the base with PVA and sand. Should be pretty easy.

Plus, it gives me an excuse to get some of their figures that I've been after for a while...

For those looking for the plastic squares try educational suppliers.

 

I still have a little bit of research to do, but at this stage I may have found 25mm magnetised square bases for $12 (Oz) for 50. That's about $36 to base all the medium creatures in the basic vampire kit with all the options and already have them magnetised ready for status markers etc.

 

Once I have a confirm on the magnetic ones I'll post links for folks as well, but the gist is, look for "counters math" on Google and use the shop with google option to check through and find the ones you are looking for, I found a seller in my state who has the 400 25mm squares (not magnetic) listed for under $10 (the rest of the cost is postage).

Were they listed as 25mm? I've usually seen those sold in 1" size. The difference is tiny, 1" =25.4mm, but it is there and the difference could matter for a lazer cut movement / display tray. And some wargamers can get kinda anal retentive about the tiniest things.

Ten cents each for the 1.5" is a decent price. A can opener might help you find a base for the storm giant.

      Osmoticmeld is an experiment! It is a collaborative partnership between the renowned artist Ian Miller and [John Robertson], and was born of a serendipitous meeting over social media many moons ago.

      I must also extend special thanks to both Sebastian Czarnecki and David Pauwels, they have been incredibly generous with their time in giving advice, support and guidance: Seb’s also designed our website and David’s done some fabulous work with his hair sticks!







       


      I've been following these on facebook for what seems like ages as they've been sculpted and am impresses with how close they are to the Ian Miller artwork that inspired them

      Here are two little guys for the new year: Bones vege-(or vegy-)pygmies, sculpted by Kevin Williams. 
      In the game lore, they are plant creatures arising from infestations of russet mold, so I wanted to incorporate rusty orange- and red-browns with the green.  
      (And if you're still in the holiday spirit, you can sing a rousing round of "Rusty the Moldman".)
      I spent about 2-3 hours on each. 
      It was fun to play with a few oranges, reds, and purples, along with the greens. 
      I thought about adding foliage or other material on the bases, but decided to call these two done for now.
      Enjoy!
      - Derek

      As you continue exploring the cathacomb, you catch sight of a ghastly humanoid creature walk in your direction. The stench of death and rot lingered around its undead forms. You recognize with horror, a minion of the dark necromancer queen Kiaransalee. This is a 77159, Ghast sculpted by James Van Schaik.

      Here’s the first new project of 2022.  I looked through the forums and saw a few versions of this based on the Redstone Triad.  I will try that.  I put a few pieces of cobblestone sheet styrene on the base, then flocked with sand.  I hope it will look like fragments of an old road when I’m done.
