About this project

Kickstarters MOST POPULAR + MOST DETAILED Tabletop Wargaming Base Stamp + Scenery Texture Making System IS BACK - and its Evolved...!

£28,482

622

The goal of this Kickstarter is to fund the development and molding of an AWESOME set of 50mm square hand-held solid resin texture tools that are designed to give you a whole new way to create textured gaming floors, surfaces & roofing on your model buildings and hobby gaming environments, as well as helping you create stunning unique sculpted bases for your miniatures to stand on!

The retail price for these will be £7.50, but in this Kickstarter we are able to offer them for just £5 each!  Support this project and SAVE about 33%!!

Contest Time!

Oook is the winner of our contest and will become the world's 1st owner of a BASIUS:TEXTURIS pad!  Well Done that Monkey... er.. I mean Ape!! And this is what he did with it:

Thanks for sending the photo in Oook!

Our kids also decided that two other brilliant backers should receive a pad each too - so Congrats go to Amber and Arakin also!!!

How many pads do YOU need?

You can pledge for any of the quantity options on the top-right side of this screen. We are afraid that it is not possible to add £5 for an extra pad in this Kickstarter, nor is it possible to add money for an original (large) Basius pad or other things from our website wargamesbakery.co because shipping and postage is a very VERY tricky thing to get right on Kickstarter.com... add a few grams here and there and suddenly the shipping threshold jumps a price bracket!

Stretch Goals!

HOORAY!! Backers of levels that get stretch goals will get a mystery freebie from our website packed in with their BASIUS:TEXTURIS box!

We hit 20k!!!! - which means that EVERYONE who backs us gets something special from us once the project ends :)

ALL 76 PADS ARE NOW UNLOCKED! Look at the large photos lower down to spot the FINAL 6...

Thanks to Oook for putting this image together!!

What does it work with...?

Green-Stuff is by far our favorite material to use with BASIUS, but many BASIUS users have reported to us and made several YouTube videos showing that Brown Stuff, Sculpey, Super-Sculpey, Milliput and other materials work well too!

Is BASIUS any good...?

YES it jolly well is!  But don't take our word for it - have a look at our REVIEWS page check out YouTube and more YouTube and google BASIUS reviews yourself to see!  Over 1600 gamers and hobby nutters are already using BASIUS to develop their sculpting skills - or just base their armies easily and awesomely! 

 

What about the Big BASIUS Pads then - are they still available...?

YES!! - Those who love our big square BASIUS range (for whole army basing) will be pleased to hear that they are available on wargamesbakery.co!

and don't forget about our ORC PRINCESS miniature, BOOMBLASTIC Firepower Bits & MOD YOUR GAME Tiles - they are all on our website too!

 

Read this bit!

We didn't realize this until one of or backers told us - but you can use Play-Doh (Plasticine / Play Putty) to show the whole sculpt in one go - so that is what we have done below!  However... Play-Doh is not as detailed as Green Stuff, so fine details that are on the TEXTURIS pads are not very visible in the photos of purpley blue Play Doh below - but they do give a good LOW RES positive example of each pads full texture area - so you can see what each pad can do for you.  Just remember that the textures are WAY MORE detailed than that!

All our BASIUS:TEXTURIS pads are highly detailed just like all our other BASIUS:CLASSIC pads (i.e. VERY VERY detailed!) - see the photos of BASIUS'D Green Stuff on wargamesbakery.co to see for yourself!

TWISTING CATACOMBS

Our AWESOME team-up with Zealot Miniatures!! For all skill levels

THATCHED ROOF

For all skill levels - GREAT for scenery!!

RUNIC PATH - 44mm square pad

For all skill levels - can you work out what the runes say?

RANSACKED

For developed skill levels

MONASTERY MOSAIC - 47mm square pad

For all skill levels

DEEPWOOD HALLS - 47mm square pad

For sculptors of all skill levels

ANCESTRAL HALLS

For sculptors of all skill levels

This pad features a damaged and overgrown rune design stone floor.  In true Dwarvish style the design is far more complex than it first appears to be... Dwarf Realm - Dwarf Rule

BIOMECHA

For sculptors of all skill levels

Gigeresque miniatures will LOVE this pad - Biology & Technology fused.

The sculpt also provides areas of battle damage and injury detail.

BAKERY BROKEN

For medium skill users, or those wishing to develop skills

These uneven, & damaged floor tiles include our own unique symbol. When laid in groups of four, the symbol forms an English Rose motif - which we thought was rather fitting :)

CAUSEWAY

For sculptors of all skill levels

Broken stone paving with grasses and rubble.  This pad is easy to use, but bases made with it are very rewarding to customize and paint!

BALLS OF STEEL

For medium skill users, or those wishing to develop skills

"Crikey Sarge, the 'Rupert' must have balls of steel to have stayed his ground like that!!"

CRAFTED WORLD

For sculptors of all skill levels

This world has clearly been crafted by someone... or something...

Advanced sculptors will be able to play with the shallow twisting thorn vine design - see what you can do with it :)

AUTUMN

For all users, particularly those wishing to develop their skills

Forest flooring covered with leaves & vines from many kinds of forest plant life - some leaves are fresh, and some are aged and starting to decompose

Develop YOUR sculpting skills by editing and changing leaves on putty pressed with this sculpt - some (the decomposing ones) have been purposely sculpted with a little less detail for this reason. You can leave those ones as they are, or sculpt onto them yourself!

BOULDERS

For all users - there are a couple of undercuts to develop your skills with on this pad.

"Here be rocks... quite a few of them in fact."

 

BAKER ST

For sculptors of all skill levels

Right outside the home of a certain famous detective...

DIGITAL ACID

For VERY advanced users (ONLY LIGHT pressing is required with this pad, and angled pressing produces amazing results)

Make awesome acid spills and Geiger style xenomorph blood (smooth the texture down a little while your Green Stuff is still soft to get rounded 'acid burn' edges) and do you remember that cake-splat in the Disney film Wreck It Ralph? Yep - you can make that effect too!!

Digital Acid pressed on a 30mm round plastic base
Digital Acid pressed on a 30mm round plastic base

This pad is also great for adding a concrete 'worn' texture to card & plastic building walls and roofs

DAMAGED RUNES

For all users

Uneven, dislodged, ruined & overgrown flooring.

Can you translate the runic text?

CITADEL RUINS

For users that have some experience with BASIUS

Mosaic flooring, fallen wall sections & plenty of moss

To get targeted detailing put extra Green Stuff on your base where the 'brick' shaped holes will go before pressing!

DESERT

For sculptors of all skill levels

Sand, Sand & MORE Sand! Oh... and an exposed stone column and mini dunes and wind-crafted ripples too!

BIOSHIP

For sculptors of all skill levels

For further adventures in the land of Giger...!

CASTLE OF SPLORT

For advanced sculptors

This is a skill developing pad - the outcomes can vary greatly and depend on HOW you press - Try it out to see for yourself!

This pad gives you plain flat stones or angled stones (depending on how you use it) for your miniatures to walk on - its up to YOU to add cracks, edit shapes and surface the stones the way YOU want to!

DOJO

For sculptors of all skill levels

Good condition Dojo flooring with patches of wear, but no tear

"You think that it's air your breathing right now Neo...?" - The Matrix

DEVASTATED DOJO

For sculptors of all skill levels

Smashed flooring showing exposed earth underneath

"Come on Neo...Stop trying to hit me and HIT ME!" - The Matrix

CORRUGATED STEEL

For newbie sculptors

Easy to use roofing pad with detail of bolts and steel - as your skills increase you will find many other uses for this pad too (like making Orky Armour on tanks!!)

DODGE THIS

For sculptors of medium skill levels

"Crikey Sir... they've got cannonballs Sir...is it brown-trousers time yet Sir?"

FACTORY

For sculptors of all skill levels

This factory gives you 2 levels of steel flooring and an iron girder support!

DOWNTOWN

For sculptors of all skill levels

This urban pad gives gamers a messy, overgrown & damaged environment to base with - and it even has a WargamesBakery (WGB) service box in the pavement!

DRY COUNTY

For sculptors with some experience (run along the rails with a flat tool to get wear & tear onto the track!!)

"Dry County - where the rivers have run dry..." (yes, my kids LOVE Bon Jovi)

This pad gives gamers a rail track in a parched land - with detailed sleepers, running into a dried-mud crossing point complete with hoof prints n the dirt - great for steampunk gamers!

ENDLESS HALLS

For sculptors of all skill levels

An easy to use pad that gives gamers fantastic clean and dirty flooring that has been designed to look fantastic when painted with simple drybrushing and inking.

MORE ENDLESS HALLS

For sculptors of all skill levels

Another easy to use pad that gives gamers fantastic even more (different) clean and dirty flooring that (just like Endless Halls) has been designed to look fantastic when painted with simple drybrushing and inking.

HALLS OF THE BAKERY

For sculptors of all skill levels

An easy to use pad that gives gamers fantastic clean flooring that has been designed to look fantastic when painted with simple drybrushing and inking.  These floor tiles include our own unique symbol. When laid in groups of four, the symbol forms an English Rose motif - which we thought was rather fitting :)

DRIFTWOOD

For sculptors of all skill levels - the easiest pad to learn about depth basing with.

The driftwood pad has detailing of a sandy beach with a big half buried, detailed tree trunk (the Play-Doh pictures below don't do it justice)

HGV TRAX

For sculptors of all skill levels

For people who need HGVs in their life!

HIVE HAB

For sculptors of all skill levels

Nice and easy to use Hex flooring :)

FARMHOUSE RUINS

For sculptors of developing skill levels - It's important to make sure you put enough 'targeted' putty on your base (or directly into the pad holes) to catch the full detail of the fallen wall stones & wood

The wooden floor has fantastic wood-grain detailing the stones are all different and the moss and plant life is great too :)

HULK CORRIDOR

For sculptors of all skill levels - easy to use, but skill is required to get it looking perfect (IE - pulling off your base horizontally without twisting it!!)

 

IMMACULATE LAWN

For sculptors of all skill levels - easy to use!

This one has been specifically requested by several people (including my mate Adz) - to provide a plain grass surface for Blood Bowl gamers - you can't get better grass on your bases than an Immaculate Lawn!

INFINITY STEPS

For sculptors of all skill levels

An easy to use step-building pad - perfect for your scenic table creation as well as base stamping!

JACKPOT

For advanced & developing sculptors - work is needed to make each coin flat if you pull it up at an angle or twist it a little (its easy to solve - just press on each coin with a flat little tool if this happens)

Loadsa coins and a great big gem!

LANDBRIDGE

For sculptors of all skill levels - A really versatile pad that can be used to base all sorts of miniatures!

MAGMA

For sculptors of all skill levels - Lavafields all around Mt. Doomy Boomy Doom!

MAN O WAR

For sculptors of all skill levels - Just make sure to use extra putty so that all the details of the planks gets captured (use the spare smooshed-out overhanging putty on your next base afterwards)

For advanced sculptors

Lots of ups and downs on this pad so its tricky to use without practice, but its really rewarding to get bases using this - as they look awesome!!

LORD OF THE DEEPWOOD

For sculptors of all skill levels

One of our more bizarre pads - but the results look stunning when inked!!

 

Dare you enter his realm...?
Dare you enter his realm...?
