Title: Dungeon sized bases
Post by: Cyril on 07 September 2010, 01:15:21 PM
Hi,
I don't know if some of you are still looking for "DW compliant" bases but the guys from Litko are selling bases of virtually any size or shape.
You can choose the material (plywood, plastic, steel or magnetic. The thickness according to the material used. You can even have rounded corners.
Anyway, if the heroes and other main characters will get some DN33, I think I'll give it a shot for the lesser minions:

Okay, I finally recieved the bunch of bases I ordered from Litko. Here are some pictures of the naked bases next to some dungeon stuff. I'll try to make something decent from the stuff I have.

Warbases .co.uk also do 15mm square bases using MDF. See http://www.warbases.co.uk/#/pack-sizes/4529303977

I haven't bought any of that actual size as yet but their other bases are great and their service is first class.

Indeed they seem to be a bit cheaper. I wish I had heard of them !

May I ask you if you ordered "out of stock" stuff ? And if yes how much time did it take ?
Because I had to wait a whole month for the bases to arrive...

By the way, I did not find the way to order unusual sizes on Warbases .co.uk...

You e-mail your order in Cyril.

There's a pack size calculator page as well for the non-standard sizes.

Just to echo Gordon's reply, I sent an email to them with what I wanted and they sent me an invoice to my paypal account the same day.
I did order some of the non-stock sizes and I think it took three days so I imagine stock ones are probably despatched immediately.

They also have an eBay shop (seller is called zorro234) if you would prefer that.
