Basius 2: The Deluxe Stamp Pad Terrain Tile & Basing System


Recommended Posts

Alrighty, I done up some bases. Milliput was okay. The little bases were done with freshly mixed milliput, it help the detail fine but I don't think it would hold up to some of the deeper detailed stuff.

The big base. I didn't have enough milliput left to fill the whole base but wanted to see what something deep looked like and how the milliput would perform. This was done after the putty had about 30 minutes to cure. It was pretty stiff at this point. Anything softer didn't work. This is the sundial part from sanctuary. It really is quite lovely.

This is the big jewel from the dungeon pad, it was done with the same bit of putty used to make the sundial. I wasn't pleased with it so I recycled. This is when the putty was cured for about 10 minutes. It was to soft to really get the fine detail I was looking for

Hope that helps anyone wondering about milliput. Or the quality of the pads. Verdict- I'll probably invest in some greenstuff after my milliput is gone. The pads are fantastic, very happy with them.

 

Edited to add. The partial I made popped right off the base. This makes me happy.

Basius,because you're getting a TON of empty new bases to use with it. Edit: I swear I just typed out an entire page and it was deleted....doing it again.    BASIUS: Is about 7 inches long, and giv

My eyes must not be working. A couple of those look like positive casts instead of negative casts. Is it just the lighting or is my brain broken? 

 

This one and this one look like positives. My suspicion is either I need more coffee or a new brain? It's probably both.  :blink:

 

Trickery of the eyes!!

Those are nice, Mel!

Thanks, Paul. I think they turned out pretty good for the first 4 tries. I am super impressed. I suspect Many will find their way into the BoG.

 

Milliput- it shrinks. I knew this and still didn't account for it. The bases once dry still look fine but are not all the way to the edges anymore. It's not a huge deal but something to keep in mind.

I probably put a bit too much Milliput on the bases, so when I pressed them into the pad, some Milliput was pressed over the edge of the base. I'm even going to leave it, because it looks good and makes the base a bit bigger, allowing me to position the miniature a bit better next to or around the detail that is on the base now.

I'm a little worried these seem made of a more brittle and fragile resign than Basius 1. The Basius 1 pad I have seems pretty sturdy and resilient but over half of my 8 Basius 2 pads came chipped (luckily only on the edges) and feel more brittle.

      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.

      ... Would it surprise anybody here to know I want one? 
      If I can't have one, at least I can spread the word. ;p
