    Hey y'all!

    I was thinking about bases a lot lately, because of my friend @Mesandres and me starting new armies or improving our existing ones with nice bases.

    Now, there are lots of base styles, and I'd like to gather some here, as a list to refer to when choosing a style and fitting elements or colors.

    I'd also like to motivate y'all to go and post examples and fitting pictures. You don't need to keep it to AoS/Fantasy settings, with armies like the Kharadron Overlords even the classic 40k scrap metal bases might be fitting for AoS anyway.

    I'll start with a list of designs that I will update as links to posts in this thread. I'd like to gather at least one or two good examples for each category. Of course many designs fit more than one category, in that case please list all that apply.


    List of (combinable) base categories with some keywords to them (feel free to post more and I will include them here):

    I will post the first few examples soon, and I am looking forward to your contributions as well! :)
    EDIT: Disclaimer: Most pictures I post here are not mine, just ones that I found somewhere and which fir the categories.

    Prefab base, but example showing simple colours work too.

    @pendrake Very good! Could you add a picture or two and possible accessories?

    @Ritual which categories would those belong to? I'd probably say dirt and/or bones


    My first example is one of my own minis:

    Categories: Dirt
    Possible accessories: flowers, mushrooms, twigs and branches, different lengths of grass tufts, rocks
    Main colors: brown, grey

    After the weekend I may have a finished example of one of the bases I have come up with for my next army, too. So I'll post that as and when I get it done.

    Which? The first? Probably dirt and bones, but I include skulls in most of my base styles, so might skew things :p

    @Ritual: Oh Yessir! Great bases, and the categories are fine. Of course a single skull on a base doesn't make it a "Bones" base. Skulls fit practically everywhere (except on spaceship interiors maybe).
    EDIT: Huh. I see them.... maybe a server issue.

    Example for Bones:

    I know why it is, but I can't fix it.

    It's because it's trying to load the URL without the "www." infront of it, but I am only logged in on the domain with the "www." infront of it. Admins would need to change the cookie domain to be explicitly set as "lustria-online.com" so it worked for both.

    Ah I see. Maybe I should just re-upload those two. I thought it would be better to link them and save server space.

    @admins what's your call?

    I logged in on domain without the www. and it is working for me now. Fix would be to re-route all www. requests to the subdomainless version anyway using htaccess, or the other way around. Allowing both to work is asking for trouble... As demonstrated.

    Nothing to do with you, it's just the configuration that needs fixing.

    Yeah I know. But since the other pictures showed it would probably a workaround. I linked to your post over in the picture upload problems thread.
