What are the miniature bases? 

Figure and miniature bases are small platforms that provide a solid foundation for the miniature to stand on. They 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. They 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 Warhammer bases. Our selection includes different materials and games such as plastic, MDF wood, Age of Sigmar bases, Warhammer The Old World bases, and acrylic, each of which has its own unique characteristics and benefits.

Types of Warhammer Bases according to the material

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

  • Plastic: they 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. They are also relatively inexpensive, so they are a cost-effective way to add a solid foundation to your models.
  • MDF Wood: Medium-density fiberboards are another popular option. These 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. They are also easy to paint and decorate, so you can customize them to fit your desired look.
  • Resin: These are similar to plastic ones, 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: These 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: They 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: they are a more premium option for figures and miniatures. These are made from high-quality acrylic, which is a strong and durable material that is resistant to scratches and fading. They 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 in general, but they are worth it for those who want the best quality and performance.

Bases for large figures

In the case of large miniatures, which generally have more detail and are more impressive in size, the stand takes on greater relevance. In addition to providing stability, it can also be used to accentuate the pose or attitude of the miniature and add decorative elements that enrich the overall presentation.

Large figure stands are platforms designed to display larger sculptures or miniatures. They provide stability and enhance the presentation of the figure while allowing you to create a thematic environment that complements the piece. In addition, there is the option of purchasing specially designed wooden pedestals for larger busts and dioramas. These pedestals offer a more elegant and professional presentation, ideal for taking your work to modeling contests, where careful presentation can make all the difference. By opting for a wooden pedestal, the details and finishes of the figure are enhanced, providing an impressive presentation that highlights your modeling skills and captures the attention of the public and contest judges.

In summary, large figure stands are very diverse and they seek to showcase and enhance the model, offering a more attractive and thematic presentation.
