60mm x 60mm bases

Post by Orctrader » Thu Nov 17, 2011 4:39 pm

Freshly armed with my copy of BLB 2, not decided yet which base size to go for but if I settle on 60mm square, where do you get yours from?

(I quite like the thin plastic bases from Renedra but they only do a 60mm x 45mm.)

Pretty much do any base size you want, if its not listed just ask and they'll do it.

Hi,
As I paint 15mm thickness of the base can be a problem, or it was untill I discovered these

25mm Warhammer Ancient Battles: WAB
Reference Base Size Price
WAB-A 20x20mm £0.13
WAB-B 25x25mm £0.16
WAB-C 25x50mm £0.27
WAB-D 50x50mm £0.42
WAB-E 60x60mm £0.58

Not cheap but definately worth it

Don't forget RENEDRA WARGAMING ACCESSORIES

if you are in the UK or Europe they do packs of all sizes but I am using the above for my 15mm BLB armies. They are at most 1.5mm thick dont look too thick for 15mm & aren't so thin they warp I use a Medium Flames of war Base for the pike men since you can get a nice little pike block on it and its only illustrative.

Ginger,
How do you secure your figs ? Mine are kept in really "useful boxes" with self-adhesive magnetic sheet in the bottom with the metal bases sticking to it

Try Warbases as "BP", suggested. Eight 60 x 60 bases for a £1, you just can't go wrong!!!! 8) 8) 8)

4L Really useful boxes secured by blobs of blue or white tack on the bottom of the bases. I however also use foam figure trays in old Games Workshop figure cases bought second hand for the awkward shaped stuff like guns. Figures in comfort do the A4 sized trays to suit piety much every thing.

I also use the PWS bases. They are fantastic but your postie will complain when he brings the box!

And 50mm x 50mm for 6 figure infantry
70x60 for 3 figure cavalry
50x50 for light guns + 2 figures
60x90 for field guns + 4 figures
