The bases look interesting, is foamcore flexible enough to do the bending for a while before giving out?
Yes, I've had these bases for a long time. That said, I once bought a cheap kind of foam-core at a dollar store, and the material used to cover the foam was more like paper. It just snapped when I tried to use it for bases.
Yup. Here´s an image for those who can´t picture what you´re referring to:
Haha, I love those tents (I'm just glad I have something a little bigger when I go camping). I also like how you stuck the guys on the horses. We did something similar with an Orc and the Worldworks Dragon.
Afet how do you stop the foam board from falling in half?
My bases don't split, because I don't cut through the bottom layer. The material used to sandwich the foam in the foam-core I've purchased is reasonably flexible.
Do your bases sit slightly curved when a mini's placed in the slot? Do you get much pullout when gaming ie go to move and you end up with the base on the board and mini in hand?
Yes, there is a slight curve in the base, but not enough to cause problems, and the slot holds onto the minis quite tightly. I've never had them fall off when they are being moved. I suggest trying a few with any scraps of foam-core you may have laying around.
I just glue my paper bases on a penny (so that way my figures will all have some value).
The foamcore sheets are a GREAT idea. I have plastic cups that I use to store my minis in (babyfood containers) but never thought about the card sheets! Brilliant!
I hate playing games where the bases don't maech the terrain. It is very distracting at times. I LOVE the bases that Jim has here, SO many textures to choose from.
I guess, I will do the following...
Order label sheets from Ebbles, and the foam core as well. Then print out a couple pages of each type of "terrain" bases, print them out, peel the backs, stick the on the foamcore,and cut them out.
After I do that, reprint all of my minis and use these new tactics I learned for storage and "swappable" bases.
As far as the magnetic paper goes, the TOO is ingenius! Think about it... If you have a transport that is a flat, open-topped model, you can line it with paperclips (under the base so you can't see them), and then the figures will not move while the models is being moved. What's worse than haning models flying all over the table when you try to move a transport...
Let me throw this out here, while I'm at it. Here is a cheap flight base that doesn't block line of sight...
It's just a plastic cup inverted with a magnet on the bottom (which is now the top). Simply place a paperclip on the inside of the bottom of the model while you are building it, or, if there is a hatch or something you can put over it to disguise it, then the paperclip will hold it to the base while it is "flying." To remove it, just pop the "base" (read as "cup") off the model, and now it can land.
The cups all stack nicely together for easy storage, too.
Vermin King: headbanguer, I believe that was one of the rare Hoards that had no submissions

elfoshrek: Hello everyone !!! I disappeared for a long time, there were reasons for this, if you want you can freely use my figurines, unless you indicate that I made them, I just do not have time to deal with models in this quality, while I can do something easier,

Vermin King: I hear that. It took me just over four hours to watch the battle report. Carry over items from work and dealing with stinking Comcast prevented me from watching straight through. Is there a special level of Hell for Comcast?
