How will it work?

Baseworks will open for pre-orders in August. Once you buy the first box, you'll be on the subscription and will receive a box every 2 months, just like our Monsters Box. This gives you plenty of time to finish your diorama.
SHIP.
Image
Baseworks is available every other month. There are 6 boxes in the full series. The first one will ship in October, then December, February, April, June and August. The same boxes then repeat a year later.

Follow the Baseworks Guide in your box to learn new techniques using the variety of basing materials inside. The contents are carefully tailored to a specific themed diorama: we will cover both natural and man-made settings.
REPEAT.

If you choose to get the subscription bi-monthly, your order will renew every other month until you've had all 6 boxes. It will then automatically end. You can also buy Baseworks as a 6 month package.

About Baseworks


Below you can find all the info we've currently released about Baseworks! If you have questions we haven't answered here, do send them to [email protected] 🙂

Is Baseworks a subscription?

Yep!

Baseworks will be a bi-monthly subscription, just like the Monsters box.

It will ship on opposite months to the Monster box, so February, April, June, August, October, and December.

Baseworks is a little different to our other subscriptions though: 

Baseworks is a series, with six boxes in it. That means once you have all six, you've got the full collection!

Each month has a specific box, and each year that box will be the same. The 2020 August box will be the same as the 2021 August box! 

Who is Baseworks for?

Baseworks is for anyone who is not very experienced at basing their miniatures. It's designed to be a full course to take you through a range of awesome techniques across a wide variety of evironments.

Our Basing Guides will be ring bound and a collectable set. The series is more about education than discovering new brands.

So when is Baseworks opening?

The timeline we're currently aiming for is to open pre-orders in August and ship the first box at the begining of October. The reason the pre-ordeers open 2 months before the box ships is because of how long it takes to get the stock manufactured. When we see the interest people have in this subscription, we can then purchase the right amount of stock. It will then take roughly 6-8 weeks to get to us.

Will places on Baseworks be limited?

Yes, they will. Just like with our other subscription boxes, we buy the stock in advance and can only sell as many boxes in a month as we have the stock for. We try to predict interest as well as possible, but this is one reason for the long pre-launch. By pre-ordering your box, you're guarenteed one and it helps us to predict how much stock to buy. Once you are on the subscription, you are guarenteed all 6 boxes.

How much will Baseworks cost?

Baseworks will be our biggest box yet and will cost £41.90. Inside, you’ll be getting the same awesome value we pack into all our boxes (at least 20% more value than you pay for), so you’ll always get over £50 in RRP inside.

How many items will I get inside the launch box?

We've got
0
individual items in the launch box!

Can you tell us the theme of the first box?

Our first box is described below, and this is the one available for pre-order in August. It will ship in October. Every box has a specific diorama you will create.

What effects will you cover in the Baseworks series?

We have picked a broad range of common basing effects to cover in our Baseworks series. We've divided these across the 6 boxes to always give you something to master, and to produce an amazing diorama too.

In the first box, we cover using resin water effects to produce a river. We cover other water effects throughout the 6 boxes too. We look into fun techniques like lava and slime, as well as iconic enviornments like snow and ice. We go over basing basics, like how to properly use static grass and get realistic looking dirt. We also cover sculpting using cork and milliput.

Will Baseworks include paints?

Not usually. We know you all have a lot of paints already, and all of our other subscription boxes include paints.

The only caveat to this is effect paints, like crackle paint or textured paint, which we might include if it benefits the diorama. We will also talk about painting your scene and give colour suggestions to bring your landscapes to life.

Will it include resin?

Yes! Resin terrain is important for building up both natural and man-made landscapes. We will have exclusive pieces as well as those from other companies.
