Anvil Industry Bases

November 23, 2011 ·

Joel from Anvil Industry has given me a bag of bases to test with my Tau Firewarriors. But what's special about these resin bases is that they're made from what Joel calls 'heavy resin' and they have a textured dome on the underside.

This gives the models a much lower centre of gravity and lots of grip which stops them from falling over when you place them on uneven terrain.

Check out the video. It's quite remarkable! When I visited him at Anvil Industry we managed to get one model to stand on terrain at a 50 degree angle. Very impressive stuff. Why has no one thought of this before?



I should also mention that the Anvil Industry bases are quite cheap and have just the right amount of detail for building and painting a whole army. So you can easily glue models on to them and paint them up without worrying about the models looking right or being drowned in all the detail crammed on to the base.

I'd better get cracking on some Firewarriors and get these all painted up!

Ha!

These are much better than I had imagined in terms of their gripping of terrain. The video is very helpful in conveying this, as I have washers in my bases already, and so know the benefit of a heavy base.

But nothing like that grip. *is impressed*
