What to print for wargaming? – Miniature Bases #3

1

So far in our series of ‘What to print for wargaming?’ I covered the topic of horses and weapons. You
can find the last one here.This time I had a look at miniature bases for our beloved models.

It was a bit tricky how to manage the categories. In other words it took me some time to decide
whether I want to follow my usual ‘list’ or make it more themed based: ‘desert bases’, ‘stone bases’
etc. Hope that I did it right 😉

City bases – cobblestone, ruined streets, sewers, debris
In this section you will find all kinds of different street type bases. Building an army for Warhammer
40k? Here it is – imperial city theme! Want more cracks in the concrete street and/or more metal
parts? Got you covered. What about simple and traditional cobblestone? Yes, it is on the list.
If you are playing Frostrave, Watrhammer or even Batman Miniature Game you can easily find
something suitable for your game.

Graveyard and death!

Skeletons, Undead, Zombies and all that Necromancer business… Graveyard, skulls, bones and much
more! If you were looking for some suitable bases for your Undead or Skeleton army you have it all

I have sand in my shoes!
Yes, you got it right. I am going to present you some sets of desert themed bases. Desert wasteland,
ruins and stone roads covered with sand and plenty of cracked earth. Plenty of possibilities here!
Ever wanted a skeleton ‘Egyptian’ like army (Tomb Kings anyone)? Not your cup of tea, ok, what
about some Fallout and Wild West theme games? If the answer is yes, you will find something for
you.

I have to admit, it was a bit of a challenge to find something special

When I was looking for bases for miniatures it was quite easy to find a theme based set. But how to
find a base that you can call ‘special’? I managed to find bases suitable for your commanders, heroes
and serve as scenic base.

TIP
Sometimes when I am looking for some specific theme I tend to check ‘strange’ tags# and search by
not so straightforward ‘search entries’. For example, under ‘banner’ you can find really cool looking
‘bases’ 😛

In other words, from time to time it is good to check tags that are not directly related to the model or
theme you are looking for.

Are you looking for something specific? Let me know!

Let me remind you that if are you looking for something specific or simply need help finding some
bits just let me know. I am more than happy to provide you with a list of files suitable for your
project. All you need to do is to let me know by writing a comment below! I will make an article
around the theme chosen by you 🙂
