I am looking for some cheap 1x3/4 and 1 x 1 metal bases and wondered who you would suggest I go with .

I didn't know they had a competitor on the same ground. I thought they were it for steel bases.

I would also highly recommend Wargames Accessories. Besides the sizes listed, they will also quote a custom size depending on the quantity, and will give special quotes for large quantities. I have ordered large quantities, both standard and custom sizes and have been pleased with the service and the product. That being said, they do have quite a bit of competition out there:

Precision Wargames Supplies Ltd. (PWS)

Renaissance Ink

Shogun Miniatures

Also, both Renaissance Ink and Litko offer self-adhesive steel paper that let you use your normal basing material and add steel to the bottom.

Renaissance Ink has always done me well. Jay's a fine fellow and has worked with me on larger orders. He also has a nice assortment of bases, materials and inks.

You cannot beat the prices and service of Wargames Accessories, in my opinion. I've always been impressed with them.

I agree that Wargames Accessories bases are great. They are the only one's that I use.

I get all my metal bases from, good price and quick service

I'll pile on. Wargames Accessories has a very long track record of excellent service and a quality product. Jeff Lista runs a quality operation.
