Which piece of appalling French merely goes to introduce this short piece on basing now normally and for the last few years I base my figures on Dalerboard- its a thick art board used by chaps who paint in 2D and its splendid stuff. I also use it on the rare occaisons I make model buildings. Most of the previos pics on this blog show figures based on Daler board- although some of the smaller chaps are on somwhat thinner watercolur board. However. I've been looking at circular bases for some of the 40mm models. I tried 2p pieces but it didn't seem right somehow- Her Maj and all that - I suppose the nearest American similie would be using the Stars ans Stripes as a duster- not quite the ticket doncha know. . So I looked about and found plastic 25mm round bases. I tried these but somehow - having a hollow underside they made the figure a tad top heavy so again I looked about and found lazer cut MDF bases in all sorts of sizes and circular too. Not only that but detachable multi figure "Sabots" to place them in.
