These Bases Inserts are precisely cut from a high-quality, paintable card material. The inserts are packaged in a snap-close DVD case for easy, labeled storage between projects.
Size and Compatibility: These Bases fit into the recess in Privateer Press and Wyrd Bases. Due to slight variations in recess size between companies, there may be a small gap between the edge of the insert and the lip of the base. If there is a size or type of base insert you would like but don’t see offered, please contact us and we can cut custom inserts for you for a small additional customization fee. These are not licensed products for either of the aforementioned companies.
Each set contains the following:
- 48x 30mm base inserts
- 15x 40mm base inserts
- 11x 50mm base inserts
Using Our Base Inserts
You can paint them already glued to the base or still in the sheet for easy bulk jobs. Paint them just like you paint your models with spray primer and normal acrylic paints. We do caution against excessive use of washes. When attaching inserts to bases and models to the assembled bases we recommend using superglue. For pewter models, it is best to pin them through the card insert to the plastic base underneath to ensure a strong permanent bond. If pinning, you may wish to remove a small circle of the insert with a hobby knife before drilling to avoid an possible frayed edges.
Q: Why are some of your base sets less expensive than others that include the same number and size of insets?
A: We base pricing on actual cut time. Designs with fewer lines and shorter cuts take less time and thus are less expensive. Instead of pricing everything the same to cover the most expensive products, we would rather pass the saving on to you where we can.
The bases shown are not included. Only the textured inserts are included in this package.
