I've been trying to get hold of the resin:

cobbled fighter jigsaw bases
cobbled mob bases (not the integrated ones)

for Gangs of Rome. They seem to be continually unavailable when I check the Footsore site. I've been greenstuffing my own bases but would prefer not to. Google has not been my friend for other sources.

Anyone happen to know of another source?

Have you asked footsore?

1: Find a friend with a 3D printer (heaps of designs on Thingiverse)

2: make a base, grease it up with petroleum jelly, then press it into a glob of epoxy to make a stamp. Grease up the stamp and use it to make multiple copies with Greenstuff & plastic bases.

3: As #2, but make a silicone mold and make resin bases. Start your own Hobby Empire selling bases. ;-)

Check out Fenris (they have lots of variety) or you could go for the Litko clear bases?

Thanks chaps. I don't know anyone with a 3d printer unfortunately but would be handy. I'll check Fenris now…

@whitphoto – they've been unavailable every time I check ((for a few weeks) so i figure they don't have any. I've flicked them an email but in the meantime if I find them elsewhere it would be useful.

As a follow up, I sent an email to footsore (as above). They say they should have them back in stock soon in case anyone is interested…
