The Types of Enhancements Available with Base Boost
Style and Textures
All bases will be made in 4 different styles, including flat-bottomed bases, bases with bottom-caps, topper bases, and bases with grooves for 5x2mm magnets. The project will feature scenes of various kinds, including Sci-Fi, Fantasy, Post-Apocalyptic, Nature/Environment, and more.
Form and Sizes
The project will make a variety of forms for the bases, which will fit into any board game, any character or object - round, oval, square, hex, rectangular and more. The smallest base will start at 20mm in diameter, the largest will be about 225mm in diameter, which will allow not only to have bases prepared by us, but also to cut bases on your own desire.
Make your gaming world feel more realistic by adding scenery and objectives. With Base Boost, you can print and customize everything from treasure chests to trees and bushes, making your world feel more like a real place. Our models can be printed on a printer even with a small table (e.g., Mars 1), since we have divided the large bases into several parts. In addition, we will provide huge plates from which we cut the bases, as well as a PDF guide on how to cut these bases for more customization. Rollers and Stamps are also available.
