Was just thinking about kickstarter.com , and decided to patrol to see if there were any new projects I was interested in, and stumbled upon this:
So the concept is that you can just putty (green stuff/epoxy) up your base, and use this simple stamp to ingrain a texture and shape for your base to then be painted.
Now, I personally find this is a really exciting concept, because even though the set of stamps will continue to create the same little base – you’re avoiding using your own spare skulls/pipes/swords etc to give the base a little more something, AND once you’ve stamped it, nothing to say you can’t have a go at a little artistic license and grove your own additions into it.
Quite interested to keep tabs on this one, and see if I can work up the funds to get me a couple of sets of these bad boys.
That’s a pretty clever idea, ill keep my eye in it to!
Reblogged this on If you go down to the woods today and commented:
This is a pretty neat idea, not sure i have much use for the designs they have so far, but worth keeping an eye out.
Tend to agree about the current designs. If they did a jungle type log + stones and branches type set I would be all over it. Really like the idea, though. People have been casting and making base textures at home for some time – good idea to bring out some pro looking pre-made ones me thinks! 🙂
What would you be using the jungle bases for?
Probably some of my Malifaux crew. And some random homeless Reaper minis. The jungle/forest base theme is always my favorite. Or crystal and snow. 🙂
Snow is mine my warriors of chaos and space marines are both on snow bases !
This is awesome, but I am also not too big of a fan of the options they currently have available. I guess trying to create your own mold might be interesting, and is something I had never thought of before.
I saw these when I was on for the WM:Tactics kickstarter. I like the idea I’m just not convinced these are all that well made. I will keep an eye out for more like this but I need sci fi bases usually.
Yea, I find the idea really interesting. And a good idea for people who aren’t extremely good at sculpting bases themselves – but like you I’m not 100% convinced yet, just going to watch these and see how they go 🙂
