I have created some simple bases for slot minis (is that the right word?). You can get the zip file containing 1x1" and 2x1" bases here. They have no textures, just simple green color for now and no instructions. I will add that later.
In these pics I have marked the inside with a brown felt pen to make it look nicer.

I am trying to get to the point where I can make my own ground textures, but that might take some time. I want to get much better at digital painting. Right now I am so busy updating my old products so that they look good again on the vendor page.
bravesirkevin: I will try that Kevin. Good idea to bridge the time until I have my own :-)
bluecloud2k2: I think they are easy to build and look ok to me. Let me know when you have pics!

Okay, did another one with a different grass texture.
Also modded the file to reduce cuts. Dunno if someone can make a cut file for this... I still need to unpack my robocutter and set it up but been hella busy. Is there an easy tutorial on making cut files?
And here's the blank template:
just select by color, click on the bright pink and then use Edit > Paste Into (make sure you have your full-sheet texture already copied to your clipboard).
I have updated the download file with the optimized layout and cutfiles (and a free grass texture i found on the web)!
Lightning, I just have to say you'se da man!!!. This is EXACTLY the type of bases that I was looking for. They weren't much more effort to make than onemonk's and I like the stability of these a whole lot better. I took your png file and did some with a few of the free onemonk overlays that are on the donwloads page. Here is what I did with them:
I used the bloody sci-fi overlay for these bases for my gun crawl game. Now to get the xenos cut out and based and I am ready to play.
There's no such thing as sanity, and that's the sanest fact.
cowboyleland: Now I have seen it. It doesn't advance our hobby, but anyone with half a brain who wanted 2nd rate figures could easily figure this out for themselves so I guess he isn't doing any harm.

berneart76: well, this is fun, (not) transferring all my papercrafting sets into the cloud. The stuff I got from DriveTrhruRPG was simple with their library desktop app,but my other stuff, sometimes with multiple duplicate copies is entertaining.

berneart76: Vermin King I usually use a mix of drybrush/watercolor/photocopy and occasionally posterizing at different levels of opacity.

berneart76: Vermin King, that's similar to the enhancing that I do on my texturing. I've found that sometimes I need to scale up or scale down the image (usually by 50 or 25 percent down or 200 or 300 percent up) to make get the enhancements to look "right"

Vermin King: On the zebras, I did multiple enhancements and cartoon filters and used them at 100%, and they still didn't look that different than the photos

Vermin King: When I make a figure or terrain piece based on a photo, I clean it up and align things to look 'right', then I create another layer and do enhancing and cartoonizing on it. I then adjust opacity over the photo image until it looks good. On the zebras,

Vermin King: berneart76, do you mean giving them green or purple manes and tails? and a few piercings? maybe a cig hanging out of their mouths?

Vermin King: cartoonizing a zebra doesn't do much

Vermin King: And due to the snow, I'm off tonight. I am going to miss the cash on the paycheck, but I'm glad they want their employees to be safe

ignatious: Actually I was referring to the two previous posts. I was trying to be subtle in order to sublimate the crassness. Read them again, but in Mel Brooks voice while he is winking, and nudging the person to his right.

Vermin King: Sure. Euphemize us
Feb 8, 2019 18:40:48 GMT -9
ignatious: would anyone care for a euphemism?

cowboyleland: We hadn't had snow for a few days. Last night the plow came down my street and did nothing but fill every ones driveways back in. Just for practice, I guess.

Vermin King: In KC we had an ice storm (with thunder sleet) the other night. Left things drivable, but last night the plow came down my street. They took all the rough edges off. Might as well have ran a Zamboni...
