Dirty Jon's boys look good. Those bases look much better than I expected. I might do my German Grenadiers in that. Winter Uniforms on snowy streets.

I have two packs on order. These things for the money are a solid buy. To many people spent much time and effort to make their minis look great only to skimp at the end on the bases. Here is a nice, pain free way to make you guys stand out.

Those look very good indeed, I guess everyone using Battlefront miniatures is relieved by not having to use putty to cover those thick bases.

Look great Jon, these bases are gonna be for my Russian Engineers or Sappers. The figs look great as well

Anyone know how well the Brit Paras fit on these bases, they all have odd sized bases and I wanted to know if it would be worth my time or if Id be better doing it the old fashioned way.

Im addicted to this blog guys, you got another long term fan, keep up the great work, your minis are always top notch.

Thanks Jester! I'll ask Jon if he thinks the paras will work- he's our brit para expert.

Dirty Jon said...

@Jester: I had to do some trimming on these bases.  It was not an insane amount of work, but I did have to clip about 1/2 the bases.  I think the Para would be similar.

All-in-all, it took me about 4X the time I usualy spend on bases -- it's a ton of work.

I mounted the figs, painted the bases, then painted the figs.

But how much of that time involved the Sunday morning educational conference call of the Panzerknacker vs Panzerfaust vs Panzerschreck? :)

Secret Squirrel said...

Oh and I defiantly want to peep those bases out tomorrow night, mine came in today and I want to gank you cobblestone painting method. Well that is if is still remember it after tomorrow night.

Dirty Jon said...

Ha ha. I'm not sure I want to share after such abuse! :)

Thanks guys, I think for now I will stick with the old fashioned way . Maybe when I repaint the army, its painted fast, not well, like you guys I dont like greys on the table, so I ended up painting it in about 3-4 days, not an easy task for infantry army, they look okay but not to the best of my potential. I will take the time to do the bases with these the next time around.

Dirty Jon said...

@jester: I did the same thing with my standard Brit infantry -- I need to re-visit them at some point.
