    Steve Kirtley of S.K Miniatures sent me some of his new bases to take a look at.
    The wood is very variable as you would expect from a burr type wood, but the pics will give some idea of how they look & the variety.

    The sizes are:-

    1) 5cm high x 4 cm x 4cm (54mm Foot)
    2) 6cm high x 4.5 cm x 4.5cm (75mm/90mm Foot)
    These 2 are basically blocks of wood finished with French Polish - no routering etc. However this gives the wood's pattern more chance to shine through on these smaller bases
    3) 6.5cm high x 5.5cm x 5.5cm (this has the routered top edge). 75mm/90mm Foot

    Prices are:-
    1) £9
    2) £10
    3) £12
    plus p&p.

    There are also bases for 54mm Mounted figures:-
    4) 5cm high x 11cm x 5cm (with routered top edge) £15
    Busts:-
    5) 8/6cm high x 5.5cm x 5.5cm £13 (The base is sloped so it's 8cm high at the back & 6cm high at the front)

    Cheers Tommi.

    I have not listed the bases on my site as yet but I am going to do so now that I am back. I will be at Euro as Tommi & Carl confirm & will have a stock of the bases there as well as Oakwood bases also.
    Maybe I'll also have some other surprises in the base department!?

    Please contact me at steve@skminiatures.co.uk in the meantime - happy to ship worldwide.

    I can only resoundingly echo just how good these bases are. I've never bought a base online before, preferring to see the wood grain myself. I needn't have concerned myself. They were superb, no other word for it.
