Just buy 1/2" washers from your local car parts place, 100s for not very much...

I prefer to use MDF keeps thickness consistent with all the various shapes of base.

Sadly, the 1/2p sellers are either selling them by the half dozen, or charging postage for a security company to hand deliver...

I was also thinking of basing on 1p's. But clearing out the garage I just found a couple of hundred washers with small holes, 15mm diameter and almost as thick as 1p coin. I think I'll use those for the grunts and put ncos/officers on pennies.

I've dug through my odds box and found enough Fallschirmjager and German infantry to make a platoon of each, except for the lmgs (order on way to Leon), so I can get started whilst waiting for the release date!

My current plan for basing 15mm for CoC, sorry Leon, is OR on round bases and NCOs and officers on hexagons and/or octagons. All in MDF and from Leon. Hope that make up from playing CoC in 15mm.  Cheesy

One problem I have with MDF, and most other good, solid bases, is the thickness. If I have a 10mm figure, it'll have maybe another 1mm or so moulded on base. Add another 2mm for the base... Suddenly all my lovely 10mm scale buildings look way too small! The figures have to crouch to get in the doors...
