What are the Bases for Figures & Miniatures? 

Bases for figures and miniatures are small platforms that provide a solid foundation for the miniature to stand on. These bases are an essential component of scale models and wargaming, as they help to create a cohesive look for the overall scene and provide a stable surface for the miniature to stand on. 

They can be plain or decorated, depending on the look you want to achieve. Bases are typically attached to the bottom of the miniature, allowing the model to stand securely on the tabletop or display surface.

Figures and miniatures are an important part of the hobbies of scale models and wargaming. These small, detailed models are used to represent characters, creatures, and vehicles, and they are often painted and decorated to create realistic and immersive scenes. An essential component of these models is the base, which provides a platform for the miniature to stand on and helps to create a cohesive look for the overall scene.

At Green Stuff World, we offer a wide variety of bases for figures and miniatures. Our selection includes plastic bases, MDF bases, AOS bases, and acrylic bases, each of which has its own unique characteristics and benefits.

Types of Bases for Miniatures according to the material

Figures and miniatures are often mounted on bases to add stability and improve the overall appearance of the model. There are several different materials that can be used for bases, including:

  • Plastic bases are a popular option among modelers and wargamers. They are lightweight, durable, and easy to work with, making them a great choice for beginners or those who want to create large numbers of models quickly. Plastic bases are also relatively inexpensive, so they are a cost-effective way to add a solid foundation to your miniatures.
  • MDF bases, or medium-density fiberboard bases, are another popular option. These bases are made from a wood-based material that is strong and durable, making them ideal for heavier miniatures or those that will be handled frequently. MDF bases are also easy to paint and decorate, so you can customize them to fit your desired look.
  • Resin: Resin bases are similar to plastic bases, but they tend to be more durable and offer a higher level of detail. They can be purchased pre-made or cast using silicone molds and resin casting materials.
  • Wood: Normally used in figures for contests that need to be perfectly displayed and try to stand out from the rest. They offer a natural, rustic look and can be sanded and painted to suit the theme of the miniature. They can be purchased pre-made or cut and shaped using woodworking tools.
  • Metal: Metal bases are heavy and durable, making them a good choice for larger miniatures or figures. They can be purchased pre-made or fabricated using metalworking tools.
  • Cardboard: Cardboard bases are a budget-friendly option that can be cut and shaped using a hobby knife or scissors. They are lightweight and easy to work with, but may not be as durable as other materials.
  • Acrylic bases are a more premium option for figures and miniatures. These bases are made from high-quality acrylic, which is a strong and durable material that is resistant to scratches and fading. Acrylic bases are also transparent, so they can be used to create floating or transparent effects, such as water or ice. They are a bit more expensive than other types of bases, but they are worth it for those who want the best quality and performance.
