Since the Basius 2 Kickstarter last year we have received so many requests for pads that we decided to do it all over again!

This project gives new gamers a chance to get their first pads, and previous backers a chance to get more pads from the ever growing collection.

WHAT IS BASIUS?

For those who don't yet know - Basius is a brilliant way of sculpting your own unique miniature bases & scenery. By using your own plastic bases, some green stuff and our series of 7 Inch Purple Double Sided Solid Resin Negatively-Textured Press Pads you can enhance your armies and collections in awesome ways.

Every 7 Inch Square BASIUS Pad has textured areas on each side that are 6 Inches by 6 Inches - and as you get 2 sides on each BASIUS Pad - you get a LOT of texture to sculpt with!

They are easy to use & easy to store - Just place them vertically on a shelf like a set of novels when you are not using them!

How To Use BASIUS

  • Just grab a base
  • Cover it with a blob of Green Stuff
  • Wet the Pad texture & base surface (I use a little spray bottle & tap water)
  • Press the base hard into the Pad & remove it (don't worry, they are very strong)
  • Cut off the overhanging Green Stuff and save it to use on your next base (no need to waste a speck of the stuff that way!)
  • Edit the sculpt to suit you - Press figure foot prints or miniature 'Bitz' into it if you like, as well as magnets or flight sticks etc - whatever you want!
Newbie Hints: In order to capture all the detail apply a good deep blob of Green Stuff to your base, and press into the Pad hard until the resin pad texture touches the plastic base, then pull it off. Most of the Green Stuff will then be overhanging the edges of your base - slice this off and use it on the next base you make! I like to use hobby pliers when I pull the base off the Pad and when I slice the overhang so I dont get fingerprints on my bases. Doing this = No Wasted Green Stuff & Uber Detail!

It's £6 less for the 3 than it was for the last KS.

 

I'm surprised that this is allowed, since it is basically using KS as a webstore.

 

 

Shipping for 3 last time was £9.

This time it is £27 for 3 pads shipped to the US.

 

Pass.

The shipping cost is added once you select a pledge level.

 

I picked the 3 pads, and it gave me the £27 rate.

 

1 Pad to the US is £13

2 pads to the US is £22

I love my pads from Basius 2, but thought the same thing - nothing new, shouldn't be a project. I checked out KS's rules though, and they must have relaxed their policies. No reason according to their "report a project" section that matches, so I'm guessing it's okay. 

 

Still, this just seems like a way to avoid managing an inventory.

Yeah, I would love to order a couple more, since I had to limit myself to 4 last time, but at $41 for shipping.  Especially when last time it was only $13, I will have to pass.  I also don't like that this is effectively using KS as a webstore, even more blatantly than other companies have done in the past.  This is 100% selling nothing more or less than what the previous KS was funded to create.  No new product.

 

They are not using Mantic.  They are having the company that casts the molds mail them directly.

Why? Mierce does it all the time and so do a lot of other companies nowadays. I don't think KS cares because they still get their 10% cut regardless as long as the thing funds.

      This is the 22nd project my wife and I have worked side by side together on. Posted tbis on Facebook but first time adding our project to the forums. I hope you like our Interpretation of the KS  Mammoth not sure if the is a SKU for it. C&C more than welcome. Felt with it being a mammoth a more wintery theme should be more in keeping. Enjoy. Stay safe in these troubled times.

      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
