I want to make a base for my Iron Daemon, but I haven’t got any specific idea. Wood maybe? Or plastic? And where can I find a plastic sheet that is thick enough to make a nice base? I think that the biggest issue are the edges, as GW’s are slightly bent… Anybody out there can help me?
being honest no, but it looks kinda squared to me (other than enormous)… The Iron Daemon is a rectangular model. And is not as massive as you might imagine from pics on the warhammer forge website. The base I need is basically slightly larger than a chariot base
That’s an interesting idea Fonejacker never seen that done before! I hand make all my bases with a thick plasticard sheet then build the rim with offcuts of sprues. If it’s a display base such as for the iron daemon I then just fill it with plaster.
I use 3mm MDF cut to whatever size I need. For the edges use the long matchsticks, they are about 3mm thick. You can bevel them or sand them to a round edge, whatever your preference. Must seal them though otherwise water will infiltrate them and they’ll get ruined. for that I put a couple of coats of diluted “Bondcrete”. on them
You could make a frame with plastic sprew and then fill it with something or cover the gap with plasticard or box set card. Or you could search for a special cardboard and cut bases out of it. That’s what I normally do.
