|TOPIC: Sample Bases?|

Regarding the "Sample Pack", would it be possible to ask for a bases/basing materials instead of model strips? Also, is it possible to have bases custom cut?
I'm pretty sure Peter buys his bases elsewhere. There are loads of places in the US and the UK that will cut custom bases for you. In the US Litko is one of the most popular. In the UK East Riding Miniatures does them among others.
As for the sample: are you looking for a sample JUST of the basing kit? Difficult to do as it include glue and several paints/washes. Or are you wanting some of the grit and grass and maybe a sample base?

I was thinking more a sample of the different bases and maybe some small zip bags with a little flock in, just to get an idea about the material.
Thanks for recommending East Riding Miniatures!

I always get my bases from ERM. They now have an option for 2 or 3mm thick bases. I've tried other suppliers but the larger 60x30 bases tended to warp.

Warbases are particularly good at supplying custom orders. So far they have made me acrylic measures for Impetus in two scales, an acrylic ZOC with movement/firing angles included for BBB, and 'spent' tokens, which are not in their usual range of tokens.

I must admit that it really is the first time ever that anyone has enquired about samples for the BBS! I am sure that I can do something for you, but it really is just very fine sand and short stranded flock - the whole BBS is one of those very simple concepts that pretty much works out of the box.
Sorry, as Mark has pointed out, I get my bases from a third party. ERM and Minibits/Pendraken are just two among a number of base cutters who will be happy to do custom work for you.

Sorry for the weird question. I'm playing around with how to base and flock my minis atm. I actually managed to find local store that could provide me with some hand-on samples of flock. Still working on the custom cut bases, though (so many to choose from).
Thanks for help guys :)
