Where To Buy Movement Trays for The Old World

I’ve been wondering where best to buy The Old World movement trays to adapt my Fantasy army, so I thought I’d make something of a list of what I’ve found so far, and add to it as I find better/cheaper/alternative options.

As stated in the relevant Warhammer Community article, “If you’re playing at home there’ll be no requirement to rebase anything. For casual play, the size of base will make a minimal difference to gameplay. The rules will be written assuming the new larger base sizes – so if you’re planning to play competitively, you might want to upgrade to larger bases.”

Not that anyone here would need to be told by Games Workshop what size they’d make their bases. But of course some of us (myself included) often play pick-up matches against strangers, or perhaps play competitively. So for those of us, where can we buy inexpensive spaced movement trays?

Obviously this will add a 2.5mm lip around the edges (i.e. half a coffee stirrer) but Fantasy has always been played with much bigger tray lips than that anyway!

Don’t forget about this Darklands Printing Services. New folk be sure to add any machines you have available to you.



I’ve added a lot more things to the list now, I should probably format it better but I still lack the forum expertise to really do so.

My favourite is the guy from the Warhammer Fantasy Dwarfs Facebook group who worked out that coffee stirrers are 5mm, that’s probably my favourite DIY method that doesn’t involve 3D printing.

@Reaver @MichaelX how easy is it to break a resin 3d printed movement tray? I know 3d printed resin is quite brittle and that would be my primary concern with a movement tray with how many metal models I’ll be putting on them.

Hi mate,

I would advise against resin trays/spacers but not specifically/just because of strength issues. Mostly because of cost. Fdm will be much cheaper, but also stronger. Resin is fragile but mostly when it comes to impact damage. A movement tray wouldnt break from normal usage is my guess, but it would very likely shatter when dropped, even if empty.

If you do go for resin I’d just print the raster and glue that on a sheet of wood or steel plate. That way its much stronger. But that can also be done with wood sticks as you said.


Saw Michael was typing so I didn’t bother, this is exactly what I would’ve said and more.


I made my own spacers.

Have to remember to let them cool before removing them from the printbed, or they bend easily and are a pain to bend back.


I’ve updated this with the addition of a UK ebay seller I found (link).

I also used spoilers to neaten the post and make it easier to navigate.

If I may pitch in with my own attempt at a solution:

Inspired by this very thread, I tried making my own movement trays using my fdm printer. The pins are square pegs that fit into holes in the bottom of the bases. So you would still need to rebase your miniatures but the movement trays can be made to simulate 25mm bases for Unit mounted on 20mm ones.

The trick was to make the tolerances tight enough so the bases click on satisfactorily, but still can be removed easily.
