Objective Markers!

Following complaints about my old objective markers (read 8” tall obelisk), and their weight I figured it was time to make some objective markers.

Trying to add some more color to both the Game Table and my display boards I tried to tie them in as much as possible with the overall artist flow of the rest of my army.. 

Feedback welcome, a few of the photo’s ended up with some weird color balance..

Bases, new take an old idea part II

With allot of feedback, a couple sales, bunches of questions and several feelers for the other bases for use with Necrons I rushed to finish the rest of the bases.
Keep in mind these are the WIP pictures, pre-prime and pre-cast. They don’t look like much but I am sending them out tomorrow for production and cannot wait to get them back, paint a few and put up the finished product.!

Bike Bases First of Course (working on 5 more)

40mm Rounds (11 Total)

60mm Bases (4 Styles, I had a ton of fun!)

And Finally 120mm Oval.. Great for Monsters and Flyers

I have several requests for Industrial and Ruins, working on those lines next! Additionally if you like making bases, want to make a couple hundred quickly and want to be immortalized in “resin” drop me a line!
Mention WhiteScars and get 15% off!
Last but not least here are links to the Pre-Order auctions on my eBay store..

Bases, new take an old idea crowding and in on already saturated market

I few months back I mentioned to some of the White Scar's guys I was looking to start a small side business (I have two currently plus my full time job... Not saying I have a a problem but...) and finally allot of the kinks are worked out!

We are using a different material that is cheaper, non-toxic, does not require mold release. It can be drilled and altered. Additionally is it much heavier then resin bases giving the figures a good amount of heft.
We have a first run of Egyptian 25mm rounds done. These were a bit of a rush job as I needed them cast and returned in multiples but I made up 20 different bases for the new Scouts (posts soon) the were featured for the first time at Blobs Park.

 40mm, 60mm and bike bases currently WIP.

They were painted using the same basic paint scheme as found here

The bases unpainted..

Feedback and suggested lines are VERY welcome..

One of the Best Hobby tools you never owned...

6" Digital Fractions Caliper

Well if you can't do conversions in your head quickly you will still know right away what drill bit is needed for pinning the model, making a kustom combi-melta, and better yet confirming all those other measurements around the house...

My favorite cheap tool store, Harbor Freight has a fairly good (for the price) model on sale for 50% off this past week, and if you have the 20% off coupons found in many men's magazines you can stack..$12.99 before the second discount
