WAMP fusion Bases

Recommended Posts



About this project


Fusion is a new concept in basing that allows for the easy creation of display quality basing.


The idea is simple. A series of wall, floor and plinth elements that can be mixed and matched for a variety of possibilities.


It's as easy as 1, 2, 3.


1. Pick a floor.


2. Add a wall (if you want to).


3, Add a plinth (if you want to).


We have designed them with a tabbed system to allow for a quick and easy fix.

It doesn't end there though. Each floor piece comes with a little infill piece so, if you don't want to use a wall, you can just glue the infill piece in place and you have a simple floor. To give even more versatility we have designed a series of plinths that accompany the bases perfectly. Whether you opt for a plain, or detailed plinth, you will get a great looking display, or you may choose not to use a plinth at all. The choice is yours and that's the beauty of Fusion.


We have created a series of themed sets. Each contains a variety of floors, walls and plinths that mix and match with each other. Each Deluxe set comes as standard with 3 floors, 3 walls and two plinths giving you 48 different combinations!

Each floor piece is 40mm square and the plinths 40mm cubes. They have been scaled to work 28-32mm but most items can work with slightly bigger or smaller scales too.

All photos show the parts simply butting up with no gluing or filling. A little prep work would ensure an even smoother fit if you wish.


With this kickstarter we hope to create the basis for an ever expanding range.


Each piece is cast from high quality resin and cast inhouse using professional casting equipment for ultimate quality control


This is Wamp's second kickstarter. Our first last year saw us smash our target by over 5000% and we sucesfully delivered a well received product. With experience we hope to run an even more sucessful campaign.



The Sets

To launch, we are offering five different themed sets. Each set is designed specifically to fit with the other pieces within that set, but many can be mixed and matched with parts from other sets.


Our launch sets are:


  • Street
  • Medieval
  • Nature
  • Ship Deck
  • Sci -Fi

As we hit our funding targets more sets will become unlocked, as well as additional items for the starter themes such as optional extra floors or walls.


We have plans post kickstarter to expand the sets to offer a whole range of floor and wall options and they will become available to buy as seperate pieces too.


Street Set


The street set is a great pack to get your hands on. The initial pieces have been designed to work with a variety of subjects and can work as Victorian, Georgian or modern periods, and as such can accomodate Historical, Steampunk, Modern or Pulp themes easily.

Nature Set


Let's face it most of us do a natural base or two, so this set is great for those times. These are perfect for adding extra foliage to and really giving depth to your piece. We have two walls (the rock and tree) already sculpted as well as the tree stump floor almost done.

Medieval Set


Minis and stone walls go together like beer and kebabs. This set works especially well with the street set. A floor and wall are already sculpted.

Sci-Fi Set


Are you a robot sent from the future? Well if so this is the set to make you feel at home (unless in the future you all live in caves or houses fashioned from carrier bags and garden implements).

Ship Deck


Arrrrr me hearties! Pirate minis are uber trendy right now so here's something to make those swashbuckling minis feel at home. One wall and one floor are already sculpted and cast.

Looks okay. I guess. Not sure the market exists though.

It seems to me that the paint-for-gaming crowd will buy sculpted bases because they want a nice quick base, and don't care that it isn't one of a kind, but a base like this would be too cumbersome. The paint-for-display crowd is probably more focused on unique scratch built bases, so I don't think they are really the market either. 

Maybe this is for people getting into paint-for-display but currently lacking the scratch build chops?

Y'know, looking at this... I don't see any reason not to add these to the toolbox; looks like they can be added on to, if not modified.

 

. .. BRB, making will save vs. toolbox additions I keep telling myself I don't need. <.<

As a display painter who loves to do scratch built bases, I can actually see a lot of uses for these. Yes, you can leave it as is and just add paint but there is a ton of possibilities for modifications and additions. I am looking at them as something I can use as the core structure of the base and build from there. Some of the elements I could even use separately on other bases. They will also be good for the times that I am running out of time and am not able to build the base myself. I am not looking at it as I get a base but instead that I am getting a feature, a topper, and a plinth.

 

That is my thoughts on the matter and I am in for a nature and medieval sets. I may get some add-ons later but that may depend how they do the pledge manager and if you can add more after.

That makes sense. More bits for the bits box, essentially.

Neat idea but it looks like these are for 30 maybe 40mm minis and if I wanted a unique dynamic base it would be for my 75mm minis

I'm not really up for stuff, budget-wise...but this would clear off a couple minis waiting for custom bases. I'm still not very good at making custom bases for my display stuff, so I guess I'm the market.

 

I especially like the plinths, though I need to get better options for that for my stuff. I currently just lop an end off an oak stick and paint if black.

Hi folks,

thanks for the interest and comments.

 

Just a quick update, we are almost 200% funded and heading through unlocks. We have already opened up a stretch goal that adds a free ruin wall option to every set you get if you pledge for 3 or more sets.

We are also very close (£24 short at time of writing) to unlocking the next one that gives free magnets and drill bit to every set.

 

We also just launched a facebook contest to help spread the word. Its the usual like,share thing and the winner will get £50 wampstore credit for their troubles. As a bonus if the winner has backed the kickstarter we will double their pledge contents at no extra cost. So theres something for those that don't fancy backing the kickstarter too.

 

Heres a link to the facebook post:

      About
       "...Aulë made the dwarves strong to endure. Therefore they are stone-hard, stubborn, fast in friendship and in enmity, and they suffer toil and hunger and hurt of body more hardily than all other speaking peoples; and they live long, far beyond the span of Men, yet not forever."
      -J. R. R. Tolkien
      Dwarves really are the best! While they're often a bit rough around the edges, they have the best accents, are insatiably loot-hungry, and will fight anything that moves—so we are going to make a bunch more of them! 
      We've assembled them into adventuring parties to make it easier for us to pack and ship. You can add an additional adventuring party to your base reward for $22. Additional individual dwarves can be added to your base reward for $5 each. For a slightly larger view of the minis, check them out on our blog. Here are the adventuring parties:
      From Left to Right: Male Dwarven Brawler, Female Dwarven Bard, Male Dwarven Deathknight, Male Dwarven Druid, Female Dwarven Warrior
      The League seeks out the ancient dwarven knowledge hidden deep within the lost caverns. They hope that, in time, civilized dwarves will once again inhabit those hallowed halls. 
      From Left to Right: Male Dwarven Rogue, Female Dwarven Sheildbreaker, Male Dwarven Battlerager, Male Dwarven Mage, Female Dwarven Archer
      Hogg's Tavern is not the sort of place that anyone should visit . . . at least not anyone who values their life or health. Surprisingly, it has regulars. Its patrons are usually adventures past their prime or looking to make a name for themselves. 
      From Left to Right: Female Dwarven Mechanist, Male Dwarven Automaton, Male Dwarven Gunslinger, Female Dwarven Automage, Male Dwarven Investigator
      Not everyone has embraced the "advances" made in the Steam Valley workshops. When the Savages descended on the valley, the Seigebreakers and their constructs helped turn the tide against the invading armies.
      From Left to Right: Female Dwarven Vampire Hunter, Male Dwarven Undead Elite, Male Dwarven Necromancer, Female Dwarven Huntsman, Male Dwarven Warlord
      The lands beyond Raven's Gate are shrouded in perpetual mists and haunted by the undead. Only the very brave or the very foolish venture there. Why not both? 
      From Left to Right: Female Dwarven Barbarian, Female Dwarven Berserker, Female Dwarven Wandsmith, Male Dwarven Fighter, Male Dwarven Barbarian
      The Iron Hills are not an easy country to grow up in. There's bitter cold winters and orcish armies locked in perpetual combat. That's not even mentioning the greatwolves. No one ever mentions the greatwolves.
      Every Stretch Goal we hit will add more dwarves (or dwarf-related miniature items/companions) to the Completionist Set. When we have enough of these for a new adventuring party, a new party will be formed. Here are our stretch goals:
      At $7,500 the Female Dwarven Cleric will be unlocked and added to the Dwarves Vol. 2 Completionist Reward. She will also made available as a $5 add-on.  
      At $10,000 the Male Dwarven Buccaneer will be unlocked and added to the Dwaves Vol. 2 Completionist Reward. He will also be made available as a $5 add-on.
      As we hit these stretch goals, more dwarves will be unleashed!

      Some NSFW minis on the KS page, images not included here
       

      KHÂRN-ÂGES is a medieval fantastic skirmish game in which you direct a Spearhead (name given to your miniatures team). These Spearheads are composed of anthropomorphic animals of 54mm (this is an indicative value, many species are larger).
      The figures are sold unassembled and unpainted.
      It's an ambitious project where you can choose from four different factions from the start. A rules book will detail all phases of the game, as well as equipment, spells and scenarios. A double-sided battle mat completes the game material.
      You can discover the universe and follow most heroes in a novel already available in French (it's a good way to start learning!): Khârn-Ages T1: The Embrasement.
      In KHÂRN-ÂGES, you can modulate your compositions without changing miniatures! Indeed a same figurine can correspond to several LEVELS of profiles, and you can equip it as you wish, you have the possibility to play it with different characteristics while changing its weapons and its equipment, or to have access to many different spells for magicians. KHÂRN-ÂGES is a scenario game, it is not about exterminating your opponent (even if it's feasible sometimes!), but fulfilling your goals to win.
      KHÂRN-ÂGES is a game that only requires a few miniatures to play, so you will not have a huge budget to plan to get started and buy your 500 Krowns of heroes to build your first Spearhead: the cost of recruitment of each mini proposed in this campaign is indicated below each model, it can be modulated by the equipment that will be available in the rulebook.
      This campaign offers you to acquire the figurines, the rules, the play mat to fully enjoy your fun experience from the start. The rules are easy to understand and very permissive, but the level of strategy is very high and will seduce the most demanding players. You can discover the fighting engine on our YOUTUBE channel (with English subtitles).
      Last but not least, KHÂRN-ÂGES is a 100% French game, the entire project is developed in the north of France, 40 km separate the workshop of creation and production of our paper printer.
      To date, after nearly 3 years of development, we are proud to present most of the miniatures that will be available during this campaign, the others are being modeled.
      Rules and profile cards have been tested (by our team and a number of seasoned Briskars players). They are currently finalized and in the process of being formatted.

      If we decide to go through a crowdfunding campaign, it's because this project can not succeed without you!
      TGCM is a modest company but has always kept its commitments and has created a substantial community around its first game, Briskars. However, the costs of such an adventure are much higher than those that allowed us to launch our first game.
      In addition to the design phase, the production and molding of figurines, there are many items related to the creation of a game.
      Your contributions will allow the printing of books and profiles and equipment cards, the modeling, the production and packaging of minitures, the control of the production line in our workshop to guarantee you the best quality and the development (we hope you will reach these levels) of many game accessories.
      The goal we are hoping to reach may seem important, but it reflects the reality of the costs and charges we face.
      Achieving this goal will allow the birth of KHÂRN-ÂGES, not to end our days in the sun!
      We are counting on you all to reach it and bring the world of Safar to life...

      Khârns
      Proud and bellicose, they are the archetype of the warrior people, but they are far from having the same character. Their king gone crazy and paranoid after having tortured his people for too long is on the verge of being overthrown, the nobles are slipping into profit and debauchery at King-Khârns, the capital, and some, like Prince Baudry and his brave Paladins remain upright to the point of wanting to overthrow the established order.
      However, all swear by blood and steel, the secular worship of this people. They have a brutal and organized fighting style, but are distinguished mainly by their diversity of profiles: from the heavy armors worn by paladins to the rapid attacks of the advanced vanguards, they have no real weaknesses except the valor of their fighters. They are the stability that a player preferring to fight back will particularly like.   Size 75mm / Base 50mm   Size 70mm / Base 40mm   Size 65mm / Base 50mm   Size 54mm / Base 50mm

      I backed one of Annie’s previous kickstarters, the one with all the forest animals including beavers and moose and bears (oh my).
      I also bought several of her female minis and the sculpts are quite nice and the castings were great quality. Very sharp and clean. I’m very happy with what I’ve ordered and if finances allowed I would back again.
