Scenic bases are a great invention. Especially if you don’t have an entire army to base (like we skirmish wargamers!) it can be really satisfying to base your miniatures on sexy looking scenic bases.
But where to get them? Well, we’ve drawn up a list to help you!
List of scenic bases suppliers
The list below is in alphabetical order. We’ve tried to keep it as neutral as possible (but we’ll fail).
If shipping is listed as “worldwide”, we’ve checked the shipping conditions and price and have deemed them reasonable. Where this is not the case, we’ve listed our reservations.
Have any additions? Do let us know in the comments and we’ll add them!

Just three ranges (Windfall/nature, Rocky Outcroppings and Junk City) but quite some choice within those ranges. Excellent looking.
Perhaps the standard for all resin bases out there. Great choice – from historical to steampunk to fantasy to sci-fi. Absolutely gorgeous looking. Their style is not reserved, the bases can become quite high and placing models is sometimes a challenge. But if you don’t mind that, you’re in for a repeat.
Absolutely worth checking out. Some designs that you won’t find elsewhere, such as “sea side”. Round lipped, round and base inserts.
Better known for their paints, Scale75 nevertheless carries a single set of 25mm scenic bases, as well as a 40mm set. They’re kind of cool, really.
