Flames of War - Bases

Hi everyone,

I thought I'd post some pics as a comparison for FOW, hopefully anyone deciding what to buy can have a reference.

The first pic are the bases from The Plastic Soldier Company.  They come cheap and in clear plastic packaging.  I find them ideal, but they do not have any round model base inserts.

The next pic is a comparison between The Plastic Soldier Company and the bases that come in the Wargames Factory box set.  As you cane see the Wargames Factory bases are pointed at the edges and somewhat thinner.

The next comparison is once again between The Plastic Soldier Company bases and Battlefront miniatures.  The Battlefront Miniatures' bases are roughly the same size and both have rounded corners.  The Battlefront bases are a bit thicker and have round model base inserts.  These inserts come in handy, but are found only on the small and medium bases.  The Plastic Soldier Company bases are all the same colour which I find convenient as I don't paint the bases. 

I find that if you paint the Battlefront bases khaki, they are virtually indistinguishable from the The Plastic Soldier Company bases.  Well that is all for now.  I hope to be back with more next week.  In the meantime I off to play FOW.

Farewell and good health,
