as im assembling some wood elves i really want to find some nice resin scenic bases for them, i can do basic stuff myself but fallen logs and the like might be difficult...

while looking around i found this:
http://www.ultraforgeminiatures.com/treewoman.html

and now i want it so bad... i dont like the treeman models at all atm and that is on the right sized base, only issue would be its 60 and i probably cant afford it right now :exasperated:

anyway anyone know a good site for resin bases?

EDIT: realised its $60 not 60 which makes it somewhat more affordable, the GW treeman is 30 and this would be 36 or so

Micro Art Studios (http://www.shop.microartstudio.com/)has a lot of variety, but to save a lot of linking, here's one to an article on DakkaDakka (http://www.dakkadakka.com/wiki/en/Resin_Bases)that lists a bunch.

About that UltraForge "mini"... Christmas is coming! :grin: You'll have to ask fridge for how many more sleeps are left...

Obviously, cons has mentioned two good sources there, but I thought I'd just add that you don't necessarily need to use resin if you're looking to make fallen trunks and the like. It might be easier, and more affordable, if you go and find a good deal on greenstuff. Logs are pretty easy to GS- roll a relatively thick tube-like shape, and then scratch in some grooves, and the perhaps the odd little bit of shaving for bark, stuff like that.

Just a thought. Obviously it would probably not be feasible for the treewoman, but there you go.

Indeed, and those tree-stumps and whatnot look very good indeed. I may have to give it a shot, make a change from slate and stone for my bases :p

Micro Art Studios have some really nice woodland bases. I've just ordered some cobblestone ones from there for my Mordheim warband. Check out waylanders high elves in the gallery, those are all on Micro Art Studio's bases to.

Jeff at Dragon Forge Design has some pretty nice bases, I've got a few urban ones, but I think there are some forest bases.

To be honest, The easiest way I have found to add logs and such to my bases and terrain pieces is to just go out to my back yard and pick up varying sized sticks. I then break them into the desired sizes I need and then glue and paint. If you need something more specific then using a stick as a base and GSing the needed details would probably be quicker and use less GS.
