Rebasing with Warbases

Last year I started the switch from 28mm Vietnam gaming to 15mm.  Surprisingly this is my third switch in scale for that period.  I originally started it in 20mm and sold off that collection to start 28mm.  Painting 28mm is great for all the detail, but it limited the amount of figures I could put on the table.  With 15mm you can have larger operations AND it's most importantly MORE AFFORDABLE.  Especially for all the vehicles.  So when I made the switch I decided to use Flames of War bases because it was very popular set of rules for Vietnam at the time.  Only problem is the rules I like for Vietnam gaming usually all use single basing of figures so my project stagnated while I pondered what to do...

The other day some friends introduced me to Warbases and my dilemma was solved.  So, now I can have single basing in 15mm but still have an easy way to move them around.  I LIKE IT.

Here's how they looked before.  These are US LRRPs figures from Flashpoint Miniatures.  I painted them in Tiger Stripe camo and add green/black face paint.

Now with the new bases on the movement trays from Warbases.

Also, I'm started to add pictures of stuff I've painted over the years.  They will have tabs on the menu. So far I have added my Pulp miniatures.  If you're interested please check them out.

Hope every has had a good week.  Next post will be soon as I have finished up another unit of Soviets.  :)



  1. Yeah, looks really nice, Rocky.

  2. Very nice. I have a pack of these guys that is well overdue for some attention too.
    I like what you are doing with the war bases and look forward to seeing what they look like all flocked up

    Now following your blog!

  3. Hi Rod, most excellent ! do these 'sabot' bases work out on the table ? ... seems like a great idea .

    1. They work out great. I've have added some more to my collection since this post.
