For basing the 20mm Fantassin Finnish from our previous article, we contacted Martin at Warbases and got him to make us two diorama bases/movement trays. These had 20mm-diameter-sized indents to allow free placement of the infantry. We also had an extra slot, so we could add a terrain/scenery element to the base. These trays are fantastic for customising scenes, as you can pretty much put what you want where you want. The infantry themselves are based on 20mm-diameter-sized 2mm MDF bases that fit snugly into the recesses, but also allow you to game with them.

The materials you will need for this basing method are:

  • an artists trowel for applying filler
  • brown wood filler (or white - you could always add brown paint into the filler before you apply)
  • fine brown ballast
  • wood/PVA glue
  • modelling snow
  • cream paint
  • chisel-ended brush (for drybrushing)
  • old brush for applying glue
  • coffee jar lid/container for wood glue
