Video Guide basing 15mm Miniatures

This is a short video of my basing method for 15mm miniatures.  In this Youtube video I am basing a selection of  Japanese Powered Infantry by Ground Zero Games (GZG). These 15mm SCI-FI miniatures look a bit like mecha pandas and I am desperate to get some paint onto them.

The guide details the clean up and basing of the models, including the use of the Old Crow models metal bases which I detailed in this article. When I film part II it will include details on painting them.

EDIT: Please note Old Crow only offer the resin bases that you can see here: http://rottenlead.blogspot.com/2010/07/15m-basing-options.html The metal bases were a special order which  are not available to order.


  1. Great little video. The high quality allows to see how nice those minis really are.

  2. Great looking video, I'll be checking back for the painting demo. For my 15mm sci-fi I've been basing on 1 cent pieces here and using a textured mat medium that I've pre-stained by adding some paint to the jar. The mat medium seems to be similar to your pumice, but has a longer drying time.

    Keep up your great work.

  3. Really love your basing technique. Those Old Crow bases look amazing.
    Would you be interested in testing out a sample of my latest product?

  4. @Red Right Hand, Yes sure drop me some details and I will have a look. Where can I contact you?

  5. @inrepose, feel free to shoot me an email "redrighthandgames at yahoo dot com" I would love to get your input on these new basing textures.

  6. Hi,
    Those Old Crow bases are the «Multiscale Bases 13mm Round, with recessed centre»?

  7. @Fanaticus: No those are resin ones you have mentioned. They are just as good though! I mentioned them in another video.


Thanks for taking the time to comment on the blog! Robin
