Hello folks. Do any of you collect 1/72 scale infantry models? Are any of you having trouble with standing them the heck up? Do they keep falling down like a surrendering Frenchman? If so, this is just the pack for you!
The Renedra 20 mm bases are absolutely fantastic and when you cut off the horrendous excuse for a "base" that comes with the models, you can then glue the models onto the bases. I can cut it off even with my super blunt scalpel (sharp is recommended) and it does a decent job.
Renedra look cheap, horrible, tacky, but that is only in the picture. If seen and felt in person, it is made of very hard green plastic of good quality and the soldiers are easily gluable along with textures such as fact grass or shrubs.
However, for standing still soldiers, I would advice a slightly smaller size, minimum of 15 mms (I can't find 15 mm bases sorry) or the size of a 5p coin (or use a 5p coin if necessary (or the equivalent size coin from other countries currencies). For infantry that are on the move it is perfectly fine though. The bases are also not so thick that you can't cut it to shape so that you can glue 2 together to make it larger, such as a bazooka team for example. They are quite cheap, so you can buy it without worrying about waste too much.
For those who are unwilling to read my beautifully written words, you can listen to my angelic voice instead (warning, ear protection recommended, my voice is too horrifically horrible for unprotected ears. Symptoms include bleeding of the ears and permanent madness. You have been warned)
