Upon closer inspection, I've noticed that there is no 25mm round, lipped base with no slot, only the slotted variety.  (Namely 74032)  I've been trying to base everything on inch increment bases for D&D, and I prefer round bases.  While the bases from Bones 2 do fill this need, they're not as pretty when flipped upside down.  I guess I could work around the slot, but I'm just surprised that there is only a slotted version in that size when the 25mm square version has both slotted and non-slotted. 

 

Am I missing something??  Am I the only person who wants this?

Certainly not the only person who prefers slotless to slotted at every size and shape. I'd much rather pin than mess about with slots.

 

But I prefer metal or MDF to plastic in most cases, so I'm not really the target market for these bases.

For me, 25mm, 50mm and 75mm would be most useful, as they fill 1 inch, 2x2" and 3x3" spaces on grids for D&D. So really one inch (or 25mm) increments. Clear is nice so that PC and non-terrain specific monsters can be used on any terrain without looking out if place.

I prefer bases in these full inch measurements as well. I still have plenty of the bases from Bones 2, so I'm likely not in for much, though I will probably grab a set of flight posts.

 

For clear bases, I'd like to see a clear 25mm round base slotted for the flight posts (like 74032 in clear.) Preferably without the lettering. I don't see using other transparent colors.

No slot and 1", 2", 3", etc. in round (and square) are ideal for me as well.

You're definitely not alone. 25mm round, lipped bases with no slot would be the most useful base for my RPGs. It's strange that we have 2" (74049) and 4" (74062) versions but no 1" or 3" versions. I have no idea which games use 80, 130 or 160mm sized bases but they're all just a bit too large for Pathfinder or D&D. I thought 1" grids were the standard for most of the games that Reaper minis are generally used for.

I'm in for 10 right now. I hope to add more but who knows. I have 2 other KSes going on at the same time + who knows when the medical bills will start rolling in + gotta save for Rcon.

The bases, they are mine now!  Mwahahaha

 

In for some flight poles and some 25mm round slotted, 32mm round no slot, 50mm round no slot, and 100mm round no slot.  With these and the ones I am getting from bones 3 I doubt I will ever need bases again.  Any chance of adding some green stuff as an add on?

Whoever submitted the pledge level names is a genius.  A twisted genius, but a genius nonetheless.

Except for this discrepancy:

 

A Large Amount Of Round Bases

141 Round Bases:

A Huge Amount Of Oval Bases

128 Oval Bases:

I thought Huge was supposed to be more than Large?  :devil:

Ok looking again and seeing how much I would spend if I just went through and picked a few.  What exactly would these be used to base? 

 

74044
Clear Flat Slotted Round 50mm

 

Edit: It looks like a circle with a slotted plus in the center for the clear poles to go in. So not much decorating on that kind of base, correct?
