I've done a good amount of work with resin bases over the past year and I realized something the other day. Resin bases are not for everyone. They may not be right for you.
But how do you know? Good question.
Resin bases are not right for you if you answer no to one or more of the following questions.
1. I know how to pin my models to their bases securely.
2. I like painting detailed bases for my models.
3. I know how to work with resin and don't mind the extra prep work.
If you answered no to any of those questions, you might want to give a second thought to putting your army on resin bases.
If you answered yes to all those questions, then resin bases might be just the thing to make your army really stand out on the tabletop and create a great looking force with a unified theme.
First, you'll need to know what kind of theme you want.
After that, it's a matter of picking the right base from the right provider out there... are there are lots of them.
Two of my personal favorites are Secret Weapon Miniatures and Dark Art Minatures.
Once you have your bases, you'll need to do all that extra prep work that comes with using resin. You don't mind doing it, remember?
After you've got something you can actually use, it's time to pair up your models with their new bases and pin them all in place. Remember, the base makers are interested in making great looking bases... but this doesn't always translate into bases that models sit on top of perfectly without any issues.
Then you think about painting them.
It's a good bit of work when you get right down to it. But the end result can be amazing if you're willing to invest that extra time and effort.
