The new bases do bring new life to some old sculpts with a lot of character.   I hate basing so I cant really imaging doing it twice...   o_o

Are you able to bury the old smaller bases in the new one or are you removing them first?

All the old stuff is removed. Most of them were based on plasticard using PVA and painted sand so it comes away without any problems. Some had Basetex which is more problematic and a very few were superglued to coins or washers which are a pain to remove, I've found that heating the coin can get the miniature to pop off though if you're lucky.

I was so jealous of the guy who owned that goat horned devil mini! Nicely done all of them :-)

Cool minis 8)

Also liked your campaigns, where you used the black hack (latter days of yarth and oubliette). Liked the minis there too.
One thing that bugged me, when I was reading the latter days of yarth, was that I never quite figured out which character was which character  lol.
They say we come from nothing and to nothing we will return, but in between is gravity and bridges left to burn.

I should have done an annotated photo of the party. Too late now, next time though :)

These are all fantastic! Silly and simple as it is, I  particularly like the sheet ghost. I have that figure somewhere, or one very close.

I really love your painting style.
Also where did you get those wonderful round bases? Would love to stock up on them.
