Awesome #SilverTower bases by Jeff Cavazos on Facebook: Age of Sigmar Fan Page. Scanned tiles printed on photopaper

He scanned them, tweaked the colour saturation up and printed on photopaper.


A 1" circle punch is six bucks on Amazon. 1" is 25.4mm, so the standard 25mm base *might* be a little smaller. Possibly mount on 1" washers? : https://www.amazon.com/s/ref=nb_sb_ss_c_2_16?url=search-alia...

*goes off to search for those free photo paper samples that used to come with inkjets*

I've done a similar thing myself, but I used regular paper and varnished it once it was stuck down. Worked like a charm!

Good to know!

All the cool kids are using magnets, and I just realized that, since these bases are flat, they'd work as a magnetic surface. mount a washer or something on top of the base, then put the paper with the printout on top of the washer. Drill a holes into the miniature, then mount rare earth magnets. Maybe make other bases for the figure, when it goes outside of the Tower or something.

Also, storage. Better than foam, and when you're not making brownies. The Tower bases wouldn't be magnetized, just the miniatures, which would stick to the tray. Come to think of it, you could scan the tiles, print them out onto steel sheets, cut them out...
