Re: Sandpaper and basing.

yes I have used the Supreme Littleness sabot bases, but this is a different issue. It's a simple way to texture bases that wouldn't require the messing about with PVA and sand.

True, but I'm lazy. It would just be easier to have them as a perfect cut add-on product.

Re: Sandpaper and basing.

I was thinking more along the lines that Warbases or whoever offering the bases could use the identical cutting pattern on a sheet of sandpaper so that it was an exact match, and sell it as an add on to the base..

Re: Italian campaign army lists

Ears prick up... if only I would stop fannying about with 15mm Vikings and 28mm Jacobites and Hanoverians, and get on with painting Italians for Sicily.

In this case, this involved applying white glue to the top of the base, and then covering in sand to get a texture. (Later I will add cat-litter rocks etc..)
