Re: Rebasing: A Guide for Bases and Stickers

I'm contemplating ordering some of the brown bases from Tom at Impact. If Tom is around or anybody else can maybe comment: are those bases still spray painted? Or is the color now molded into the plastic?

@mac: are you still converted to gluing directly to the sticker? I'll have to try it...but the engineer in me resists! MUST...MAKE...STRUCTURALLY...SUPERIOR.

As far as I know, Tom is still spray painting them. I'm sure there would have been an announcement if he switched to brown plastic. I still paint my own.

I still glue directly to the sticker for most figures. If the figure has a good peg on the foot, like the Dust Tactics and Rackham, I'll drill a hole for extra support.

Re: Rebasing: A Guide for Bases and Stickers

@Tom: the Basing Supplies page on your website would be much easier to shop from if you updated the pictures and organized it a bit. For example: for the items that are stickers only, update with a picture of just stickers (currently it shows a sticker and base, which is confusing). Group 30 mm and 40 mm and Double-spaced together on the page. So maybe the page would look like:

30 mm green stickers --- 30 mm brown bases

On the next row:
30 mm superhero stickers --- 30 mm black bases --- 30 mm black bases + stickers

Then repeat for 40 mm and so on.

Thanks for the heads-up about pricing, mac. And a big thanks to everyone in this thread helping out with more and more info. This is a great resource!

I've finally moved into rebasing and this thread has been invaluable.

Made an order with Yodajunkie last week and everything arrived, just as promised, with lightning speed. Now I just need to get some time to actually do some of the rebasing...

I'm considering rebasing my new VC Wave 7 units, but don't know what size bases to buy and what they are called on the site.

On this page, you'll find all the bases Impact offers. For Small and Medium, you'll want the 30mm bases and stickers and for the large single space, you'll want the 40mm. The exact items will depend on whether you want the bases painted in a Heroscape style brown or the plain black bases to use as is or paint yourself.

Painted brown
30mm - SP_PB3H - $3.00 for 15
40mm - SP_PB4H - $3.00 for 6

Unpainted black
30mm - SP_PB30 - $2.00 for 15
30mm - SP_B30K - $71.24 for 1000
40mm - SP_PB40 - $2.00 for 6

Classic style Stickers
30mm - TK_HRSP - $5.25 for 63
40mm - TK_HSP2 - $5.25 for 24

30mm black bases and stickers - TK_HERO - $3.00 for 15
40mm black bases and stickers - TK_HEO2 - $3.00 for 6

He's got the peanut bases, too, just be sure to select the correct ones. You can also order these directly from Yodajunkie, if you don't mind ordering from 2 places.

Edit: as a reminder, set up an account and log in to make sure the prices are displayed in US$.

Re: Rebasing: A Guide for Bases and Stickers

Made some 3D printed bases in small and large single and small and large peanut today. They turned out really nice. Does anyone know where to get the sticker images from?

Cavalier posted some stickers in his trade thread. I believe he has the small singles. Impact Miniatures sells stickers for their 30mm and 40mm small and large single bases which should work on Scape size bases. I don't know of a source for the peanut bases.


Edit: Read it all, mac! Sticker IMAGES!

Greyowl had some sticker images. Let me see if I can find the link.


Edit: Bad day for mac. Completely forgot about Typhon's! I'm just gonna go find a place to lie down and rest...

Re: Rebasing: A Guide for Bases and Stickers

Thought I would post this here, too, as another option for rebasing. @Dr.Phibes posted about some Litko clear bases available on Amazon.

I used small dots of Loctite Gel Control Super Glue to attach the figures. Took a little more time than normal for the glue to set.






I've ordered some in the 32mm and 40mm diameters, too.
