Making Cracked Cement Bases







I've had a bunch of nearly finished miniatures awaiting bases for quite some time. Today I decided it was time to take care of that. To create these, I started with thin sheets of cast dental plaster. Using pliers and clippers I broke up the plaster in order to create these designs. I then used the debris from breaking them up mixed with anti-skid sand additive to fill in the holes. I think I have enough designs for an entire army now. Once these are dry, I'll clean them up and prep them for casting. My goal is to have an easy to use set of mould that I can break out and cast whenever I need them.

So, did I miss any base sizes? I think I got them all, but you never know with this strange new Games-Workshop.

  1. Well, even if you have all the base sizes now, you probably won't by next week, at the rate they're dropping new ones ;)

  2. Awesome. Was going to ask where you get dental plaster from. But then I remembered I was on the internet.

  3. These look fab and to think folk pay good money for resin bases that do the same job!

    1. I feel where you're coming from, but for some hobbyists the money for some bases is a good trade off for being able to apply that hobby time somewhere else.
