Bases for Custom Figures

Howdy!
Where does everyone get their bases for their custom 'scape figures?

Do you cast them or are there bases like them already out there?

Either way...where do I find them?

Re: Bases for Custom Figures

In a pinch, it's pretty easy to make a custom base from foam board. You can find big sheets of the stuff about the thickness of official HS bases at Hobby Lobby, and probably at most other big craft stores. Just trace around an official base straight onto the board, cut it out with an exacto knife, and slap some acrylic paint on it (I use a layer or two of dark brown, followed by some green daubed roughly over the top). Then you can superglue your figure straight to the top once it's dry. Works like a charm.

Re: Bases for Custom Figures

Its much more cost efficient to buy a large pack of bases from a site like impactminiatures. Molding bases could be done as I have made some peanut bases. It would be much easier to 3d print them.

Any ideas for peanut bases besides just ripping them off of other figures? impact is all sold out

The bases from impact miniatures were made by yodajunkie. So far they have not contacted me for a resupply. Website was not cost effective, but you can still buy bases by emailing yodajunkiedesigns@yahoo.com. Peanut bases now come with machine cut "stickers" have to be glued on.

Yeah when I ordered bases from Impact he told me he was out of the Peanut bases and said I should contact you. Instead of a webpage could you post in the trade threads here with a price list. I'm sure it would lead to more sales.

Re: Bases for Custom Figures

Ummm, okay, Impact! is out of bases and base stickers - does anyone know if/when they might get more in? Is there a chance they won't?
Also, any idea where I could decent peanut bases from reliably? (I don't like the idea of a transaction through email.)
