I have recently purchases the Josef Bugman model, the one where he stands proudly on two barrels of Bugman's XXXXXX. I want to make him lead a squad of great axes, to recreate Bugman's Rangers, but unfortunatley, his base is to big. Even a cavarly base want fit perfectly in the unit. What do you recommend?

My local craft store sells some MDF in the form of a coaster, (for under a beer in a bar). They are blanks, designed to be painted however you want. I cut them down to the base size I need and they are the same thickness as all my bases. Check out my gallery for artillery pieces (full sized coaster) and various unit fillers that are 2, 6 and even 9 bases in size.

The best thing to do it stick two 20mm bases together on a piece of thin balsa or plasticard, then fill the gap with green stuff.

Very easy and the ideal size.

Either use two 20x20 bases, or if you want a more dramatic scene you could use a 40x40 base, though he would also count as rangers as well you'd have to note.

2 20mm bases is probaly the best way to go, would fit in with the unit well.

Does anyone know where I can buy war hammer bases, simple, 20x20, with the hole in diagonal and bases with the hole parallel to the edges ?
I got 20 Zweihänders from WK, but I don't have any base left :(

Thanks in advance folks !

GW sell them, or there's a number of other eTailers that will. GW ones too pricey?

GaleForce 9 do some bases that are magnets (not rare earth ones I believe, but the size ought to make up for it). Same price as GW's....

If you position the barrels toward the front then theres' plenty of room for 2 R & F to stand behind or you can position the barrels in the middle to use it as a filler.

Darkblade, in that picture those bases are 20x20, and the 40x 20.

But to the original question GW sell them diagonally and horizontal slots.

Sorry I thought thorgrimtheunyielding needed advice on using 2 20 x 20s or bigger, my mistake I suppose.
