Sci-fi base toppers

Published on by

An update on the base toppers: I went into full yak-shaving mode, all the way down and decided to make my own bases. I'm going to need them when I get to casting up some of my minis,and while I can buy a 100 of them for about threefiddy why would I want to make my life easier :)

I made them from a paper template that I bulked out with sculpey. The bottoms are rough, but I don't need to look at them.

The base toppers fit these bases (and the GW ones) very well:

I think I can get a seamless join with a bit of sanding and some Tamiya putty applied here and there. So I'm stoked!

Here is a genestealer mounted on a diy base + base topper. Time to paint him up.
