As some of you guys know, I've played WAB since it came out (a long time ago)
I've now switched to playing CoE, and still enjoying it!
However I'm loathed to re-base all my character figures onto round bases for the new system, and so I've come up with an idea for keeping my figures on their original bases but keeping within the guidelines from CoE.
The ‘set' I've made should accommodate most armies, and of course you can alternate different models in each base, I've put magnet sheet in my personal set for this purpose.
Check out the link below.
I'm aiming at £10 per set (cast in Resin) including postage within the UK, maybe a couple of pounds for overseas postage.
I'd prefer Paypal to keep it simple,
Please keep in mind I'm a ‘one man show' it's Christmas and I have a full time proper job!
Thanks for looking.

@Tim : very nice idea!

Tim Haslam UK22 Dec 2011 5:47 a.m. PST

Thanks, though I don't think it's going to make me a fortune ;)

Just my way of supporting Stuart (at CoE) and fellow gaming buddies.

Just trying to keep interest in these bases going.
I've 8 sets left to sell.
(until I of course buy more expensive resin)

Looks like "Church of England" to me….

Tim – you are as cunning as ever! ;) Every time I reply I'm bumping you up :) I would certainly get a couple but don't use Paypal – can I send you the cash? Can e mail offline.

Just visiting – maybe Tim is going to do some Holy Roman ones later on ;)

MWCentre09 Jan 2012 2:53 p.m. PST

Bring them to the Four Seasons tournament on the 29th, I'm sure you will sell them there!

I will also pay you for mine or shall I use the money to pay for your entry fee?

Tim Haslam UK10 Jan 2012 2:41 a.m. PST

He he!

I've never been called cunning before, maybe just blundering through life with some luck thrown in?

Roland, yep, I was going to bring what I had left with me.
(AND pay my entry too!)

John, email me @ twhaslam AT uclan DOT ac DOT uk
(I think you will have enough with just one set?)

cheers guys

Tim said I wanted a couple mate ;)

I know very well you are a top class modeller – your Spartacus army was superb. Loved the WI COE battle report. Stuart missed a trick – he could have done a This is Sparta number on you like in 300………

Will e mail offline.

Oh dear I've bumped you again!
