Keep the plywood in stock for next time I get a strange basing urge ;)

Actually, I notied the other day that you don't have the game systems listed in the title of some of the bases you've got on ebay, where the base size would be appropriate for that game system.  Is that something you'd want to do if you had the info?

Unfortunately it's something eBay keeps cracking down on - lots of IP lawyers with too much time on their hands looking for "unlwaful" use of their tradenames. Ebay themselves also don't like listing titles that use things like "warhammer" in their body text as it breaks their T&C. Plenty of people do it, true - but I've had my account suspended before for suggesting stuff was "suitable for XXXX", so it's not something I'll be doing.

what about a generic line like: Scale suitable for most 25mm to 28mm wargames......?

i'd like to see some 28mm dark age scenery ( wooden houses/ fences a small chapel) and movement trays so that the models rank up side by side!

maybe some scenic multibases for those who do historicals like WAB (so some 80x20mm bases and 40x40 or 60x20mm bases)

We've got somebody working on viking-inspired architecture for us at the moment, which should suit a range of dark age and fantasy stuff (hopefully)....

I have toyed with the idea of scenic trays - in fact there's one in the shop already - but it's sold a grand total of 2 castings in over a year, so I'm not sure how big the market might be. Doesn't mean no !

  Maybe sharks with lasers?

DEFINITELY a must! Snuurg? One to add to your deep ones? And I want crocodiles with chainsaws to, and piglets with bazookas most definitely  :icon_wink:

 - funnily enough, was thinking about adding a shark or two to a later range of deepies - the current ones by the way are getting pretty close to casting-readiness now, though the original biggun of the 'set' might still hang back a bit from the first round of releases - maybe I'll crash out a threesome of biggies - the Dunk, a Tiger/Great White sorta thing and maybe a hammerhead. Hmm... still labouring under a few Otherworld bits and pieces though, and some damn fiddly teeny-tiny dogs.

28mm but true scale - which makes them bloody tiny. That's what the client wants....but they're going to look piddly next to everyone else's canines IMO....

you know GW does not sell its Giant base seperately, there my be a good idea in sculpting up a base to match in size as all thats out right now are the standard chariot types.

I think Medved :mv might have a plastic Giant...  Stu?  Base size?

Shark!  are they going to come with laser headgear?

Dogs -- I have two monsters, each about 100 pounds, so they wouldn't be tiny in 28mm.

another suggestion is wings for minis, alot of people are always looking to put wings on things, like bat type wings or feathered for 25 to 28 mm minis .

chariot bases are 50 x 100mm, i think the giant had a 50mm x 80mm base
