Woodern floor bases

I made mine from 99 cent plastic for sale signs. You can use those or plasticard which is sold at most hobby stores. Cut them into thin strips with an exacto knife, you can texture them with a dremel if you like then line them up on another piece of plasticard and fit it to your base and paint. It honestly takes 45 minutes from start to painted and is ridiculously cheap. There's a youtube tutorial as well. Give out a shot it's worth the two dollars.

Personally I have Back 2 Base-ix bases for my Showgirls. They are cheap, ship fast and come in 30mm, 40mm and 50mm so you can match the bases for your Corphee and Corphee duet.

You will need to give the base a light sanding to remove any flash and make them sit level. They are resin, so if you aren't familiar with how to work with resin safely, you may want another option.

I just wish all their bases came in the right sizes for Malifaux. I wanted to use the "Spooky Bases" for my Dreamer crew, but they only come in 25, 40, and 60mm round. :(

no doubt they may be released in the future... they have expanded alot of bases to include 30mm, 40mm and 50mm since many games use these sizes nowadays... maybe try a suggestion/ request email to them?

...My Gran used to say you never know until you ask :D

I've used some of the trench works bases from secret weapon miniatures. Most of them have wood and mud mixes, but a few were just wood beams.

They are resin, so same read up on resin rules as mentioned before. Service is quick and the price is right. Very little flashing on the bases and minor sanding needed, if any.

Another good alternative. Plus, they come in the right bases sizes.

Wow lots of responces! Thanks. Yes I could make yself but I am really inept, picky and lazy ;) a combination that drives me to consider resin bases over putting in the effort myself lol.

Microart make great bases, but the pile of timber look is really not what I was looking for, more woodern stage floor. The back-to-base people though have some really nice bases. Shipping is costly from Australia, but the basic bases come in at reasonable prices.

Anyone from the US ordered from them before?

Try Fenris Games.

This is the eBay store:

I ordered some on Tuesday, they arrived today, I've used them on several occasions in the past, always reliable. Not sure about shipping costs to the US though

Cheers

Antipodean supremacy.

I can't speak for the US but shipping is absurdly fast to Australia. They do go work so go it, just don't forget to get 40mm and 50mm for your corphee so you don't have to double up on shipping later.

Colleagues,

Dr. Faust from The Painting Clinic has posted videos on his YouTube channel on how to make wooden plank bases as well as how to make flagstone bases.

I have use his method for the flagstones on my miniatures and been very happy with it. If you use a thin coat of petroleum jelly on the base you can remove the flagstones, cut them into partials and glue them down onto your bases later.

Anyhow, here are the links if you are interested.....

I ordered a set from back 2 basix and they came in the mail pretty quickly.

MalifauxModels38.jpgMy only complaint is that while some of them had the planks laid out straightly, others were laid out perpindicularly or diagonally

and that did not really look like a stage floor. Still cool looking, but i did not use them for this crew.

Fiendish Fabrications have a lot of good bases for Malifaux, including the ones you are looking for.

Their used to use some kind of hard resin before, and it was quite prone to air bubbles, but recently they shifted to the "standard" resin and I didn't have any problem since. They are also cheaper then the competition, at least around here.

I used ironhalo.net and grabbed a combo of the "shiver me timbers" inserts http://www.ironhalo.net/store/catalog/product_info.php?cPath=44_39&products_id=150 and the deus ex machina http://www.ironhalo.net/store/catalog/product_info.php?cPath=44_39&products_id=166

They are cheap as hell and their painting doesn't do the detail on the boards justice i feel. My only complaint is the resin is very brittle making splitting the bases in half for some coryphee conversion work a bit harder.
