Title: Hex Plastic bases
Post by: kinwolf on 25 March 2019, 21:22:41
In 2014 I seem to have found plastic hex bases somewhere(I recently reopened the box where I stored all the Battletech stuff I bought in 2014.  Some nice surprises in there!)  The bases are in pack of 10 and there is a small insert in them that has 2 logos, one is RPE and the other is IronWind Metal.  But I cannot find those plastic bases on IWM website.  Have they stopped making those?

i don't ever remember IWM selling plastic bases and i've been buying from them since 2008. when the archive fee was in effect i'd order occasionally from europe via Ral Partha Europe and they sold plastic bases. these days i order from proxie models.

It's those!  Same number that is on the insert "99-125 Plastic Hex Bases (10)"  So they are made by RhalParta Europe instead, it explain the RPE logo, thanks!(but why the IWM logo is there also, dunno.)  Since I don't remember ever ordering from UK, I guess some local stores once carried them.
