Hi Allan,

Thanks for your comments.
Are the bases made from scratch? Yes and no.
I buy the pre cut 2mm base blanks from Warbases.co.uk and then stick a piece of 2.3mm triangular plastic strip across the back edge, leaving a small gap. I then cut and sand the back edge to the angle of the triangular section. It sounds long winded, but I've got it down to a (almost) fine art now so it doesn't take that long.
I then just cut the corners off the front edge.
This all harks back to when CMG made their own resin bases that looked like this.

AtB,
Shane

Thanks for the heads up Shane.

Will give it a go myself.

Almost forgot. I've also finished off the rest of my advanced walkers, so that i have three of each.
The photography isn't very good, but hopefully good enough.







Enjoy,
Shane
