Sally 4th gives you a different way to base your minis with their new crystal clear gaming bases.

From them to you:

I’ve been gaming for 35 years now and have based literaly thousands of miniatures the traditional way, making little dioramas with sand, gravel, static grass, tufts of foliage etc.
These all look absolutely fantastic… but recently we have been producing Terra-Blocks for urban based combat in dungeons, warehouses, starships, offices etc. and I was putting together a shot for a magazine article and it suddenly struck me that the only thing ruining the shot was the beautiful diorama base that did not fit in with the terrain around it. The base looked great on grassy, rocky open spaces, but put it on stone flooring, wood flooring, sandy beach, snowscape or rocky crag and it looked completely out of place, so I came up with the idea of clear perspex bases that let whatever terrain you have placed your figure on show through. I hope you will enjoy using them as much as I do!

We have 17 varieties of clear bases covering all popular sizes and styles including round, square, rectangular and hexagonal.
We have come up with a couple of special bases: a 25mm clear round base with a cross etched on to show facings (front, flank, rear) and a 25mm round and hexagonal base that has numbers 1-6 etched around side for miniatures such as zombies that move in a random direction.

    How do you go about gluing these without frosting them over?
    I am rather interested and would love to use them.

      Very carefully. I had thought about getting some from Litko, but my friends talked me out of it.

  • The bases are made from Perspex which does not cloud the same way as plastic. All of the figures we have used have been glued on with super-glue with no problem.

    Last year, I bought some clear rectangular bases from Litko for 1:2400 sailing ships. I used Zap-A-Gap, and set them to dry in from of a fan on low. There was only the tiniest bit frosting right at the very edges, “outlying” frosting could be wiped off.

    In this case, it’s barely noticeable, and looks like part of the wake, anyway. Air circulation is the key.

    This will probably get big. It’s super easy, and still looks good.

    Need some bigger sizes. 80-120mm would be nice increments as well
