re-basing... the never ending story

Re.basing the Swedish Allmoge...200 minis to get new bases...all minis have now been removed from their bases, a hell of a work, I fortunately didn´t cut any fingers...

The minis are now sorted up with the fresh painted ones, I also made some fixing up painting on the old ones.


I have tried to mix them as much as possible manufactur wise, so I only have one Kingmaker and Claymore mini on each base, the majorety of my minis are Perry so they are 2-3 on each base. Each base have 2 bow/crossbow minis and 2 with polearm, at least most of them...

As you can see some of them already got their new shiny bases with softly rounded corners from Warbases


The story continues...

  1. I've been there :)! What I've recently been doing to remove figs from metal washers is hold the washer with a pair of pliers or shears, and using a wide blade Exacto knife to slice/pry off - very carefully of course! I feel the effort well worth it in the end. Enjoy!

  2. Rebasing is a nightmare, I have done it for a few armies. In fact i hate the bases for my Italian wars collection now, they were meant to temporary until I could find something I was happy with but alas 800 or so figures later they are still on them!
    Good luck though, at least you didn't break any removing them from the old bases

  3. Good choice on the rounded corner bases Micke! Nothing to do, but to keep up the spirit and crack on with the project :0)

  4. I share your pain; I've re-based quite a few minis in my time! It is always worthwhile, though.

    When I base minis I avoid superglue in case I need to re-base them again some day. Minis superglued to washers are the Devil's Work! ;-)

  5. Sometimes necessary to get what you want, but always a pain to do.

  8. Rebasing can be such a pain in the ass! But I'm sure it's well worth the effort. So get on with your almoge elk riders.
