I have not used my plastic bases that come with the Perry plastic kits. Does anyone use these?

I have stacks and stacks of them, someday I may find as use for them… assemblage art perhaps? I use 25mm round 4Ground bases and Warbases movement trays for my figures.

I've been using them as wall paneling for Sci-Fi interiors.

I used them for my Sudan Mahdist forces. Probably won't use them for my British.

I appreciate that plastic model manufacturers provide these. The problem is they are never in a size I use.

Only used them once and found they warped. Not sure why, but they did. Now I keep a couple of sprues handy for kitbashing etc. but otherwise just bin them. The Warlord single bases make useful counters & markers though!

The big problem is that plastic figures need some weight.
Wood or steel bases provide such, plastic do not.

I just threw away about 30 sprues of them.
