Where does one go to find 54mm little wars. I have been in winter quarters for some time now, and I am quite anxious to get back on active service

Like the bases.

Eric, did you make your own bases or purchase them?

EricThe Shed03 Nov 2017 11:47 p.m. PST

I assume you mean the movement trays – these are from Warbases


The figures themselves are on 25mm steel washers
