Battlefield Resin Bases


Recommended Posts

I got the link to this through Facebook and liked the work so far.

 

"30mm 40mm 50mm 120mm resin bases for your models depicting sandbag emplacement."

I know that the bases are intended for use in armies. While the bases are not optimal for fantasy miniatures I can still see these with Steampunk inspired minis, and of course, with some of the Chronoscope minis.

 

The small project has one stretch goal ... "If we get 100 backers I will add 1 30mm base to each of the Package deals."

 

I like that he's kept it simple (maybe too simple) and pledge levels seem reasonable.

 

He's already made his modest goal of $500.

 

 

I'm hoping that he moves into other terrain types moving forward from this KS.

 

I have a couple of minis I can use these with so I am in for the $10 pledge for two 50mm bases.

They look pretty nice, but the sandbags on wood (trench) flooring makes them a bit limited outside historical war settings. Maybe a Steampunk post-apocalyptic setting. Which reminds me, I need to pester a friend about whether or not he actually will run a Deadlands campaign.

Hm... I like these! Would love to go in, but probably won't go big. Unless there are some cool stretch goals... I might get the 10$, 5-base pledge, do up a few sexy ladies; I think Rowena van Graaf and Belle, Steampunk Heroine might look good with these... I do think they'd go well with steampunk stuff.

I wish they came in other designs. They look really cool but I have no use for the sandbags outside of possibly a Khador army.

 

 

I asked that on the comments and he replied:

 

 

I am already getting feedback to size and style of the next campaign including maybe a part 2 for the battlefield series .

Hrmm. If I was still playing Warmachine, and those 30mm bases are truly 30mm (ie, compatible with WM bases), then I would be down for this. Those would make great bases for my trenchers and maybe even long gunners.

Look nice, but also strangely familiar - I'm sure I've seen very similar bases by another company somewhere...although on second look the ones I've seen are slightly different (I managed to find them again)

 

Also, the one theme he has falls into a category I'm unlikely to use (the games I have that use this style of base are either fantasy of Sci-Fi/VSF), so I'll be passing.

 

His prices are good, but I'll stick to the companies I already use for bases for the time being :-)

Very cool product. If I ran Khador, Cygnar or non-pirate Mercs, I'd be all about these. They look good and are a good price; not for me, but I hope the project does well.

Yea, I was trying to come up with a way I can convert them to fantasy, but the sandbags and such would just be hard to work with, so I'll pass but hope he does well too ^^

I was thinking like that and the only idea I had was to spackle the sandbags and to make a ruined wall or similar.

      I know there are a few folks that do Bolt Action and similar 28mm wargaming (@buglips), so I thought I'd bounce this out there.

      Story
      Railroads are an important means to transport troops, equipment, ammunition and all other kinds of supply to the front. Especially in a country as vast as the Soviet Union with it's endless steppes, only few reliable roads and no major rivers running in the direction of the German advance during Operation Barbarossa in World War II. 
      With this set of detailed buildings and rolling stock in 1/56 scale for 28mm figures you get the opportunity to recreate the crucial fighting around the Soviet railroad system.
      The kits focus on the major pieces of rolling stock available to the Soviet defenders: box cars, gondola cars and flat cars. And the mighty ALCo RSD-1 Diesel Engine which was made available under the US Lend-Lease Act.
      Also included is a typical rural train station with optional additional platforms for all who want to depict a Soviet - or captured German - supply depot, where heavy equipment like tanks and guns are being unloaded.
      And for all of you looking for an armored train - don't worry! We have you covered.
        Talking about railroad tracks:
      We did not see the need to reinvent the wheel, so all kits are designed to be used with
      4Ground Railroad Tracks (available as add-ons to the Kickstarter) or O Gauge Model Railroad Tracks The kits include optional parts enabling you to choose your favorite system while assembling. Going this route has allowed us to concentrate on designing and producing the rolling stock only, which has the advantage of an earlier fulfillment date for the Kickstarter.
      All models are highly detailed on the outside and inside. The interiors are easily accessible, as roofs are removable. In addition, all doors are moveable, which means you can open or close them during gameplay.

      A Viking Girl sculpted by Bobby Jackson. She was a lot of fun to paint since she had a lot of canvas for freehand work. She is also my first serious effort at NMM, so that's a well I plan to return to.
       
      I came to paint her when I asked my friends which model needed to get some love next. I presented a wizard, a ranger, and an armored lady fighter. One chimes in that she'd like to see the fighter (she being a practitioner of HEMA). Her boyfriend mentions something about boob armor. I said, no, she's got pretty normal armor. You want to see something egregious? THIS is egregious. My HEMA friend immediately says, "I'd like to change my vote." So here we are.
       
      Here's the WIP thread for her. Here's my next piece.

      This has sod all to do with miniatures, but I would be surprised if there were not people who might want one of these pins, for literally any reason at all.
      I'll let the campaign speak for itself, as I usually do; it is pins. There are, as the title implies, representations for most of the common faiths, in a literal rainbow of ... well, Pride rainbows.

      "You take your game seriously. Now it's time for a serious screen.
      In October of 2018, Dog Might released the first fully sculpted GM Screen, the Valhalla Screen. Since then, we have released over 30 more designs, including officially licensed screens for: Pathfinder, Call of Cthulhu, and Vampire: The Masquerade. We have also designed screens for you favorite shows, such as Relics and Rarities and the Critical Role stream of Undeadwood. Over the last year and a half, our Valhalla Screens have proven to be our most sought after product. "
       
      ... Would it surprise anybody here to know I want one? 
      If I can't have one, at least I can spread the word. ;p
