Games Workshop haven’t got any new miniatures coming out this week but instead a series of different Bases & Base Inserts for Warhammer 40,000 armies. All of these are from the Sector Imperialis range and give you some themed bases for tying your army together.
First up we have these, a set which gives you a selection of 25mm and 40mm Bases. As you can see they have an interesting mix of designs on them but with plenty of space for you to stand your miniatures without them looking awkward.
It’s interesting that they are actually now moving into the realm of Bases since it’s something that they’ve never really done before.
Next up we have a slightly larger and more standard set of 32mm Round Bases for you to use for your Space Marines.
These appear to have plenty of interior and exterior building detail meaning you could represent quite the battleworn installation with these. The additional bonus of these is that they fit in well with the Realm of Battle boards that they already create.
Going one bigger they also have designed a selection of Round and Oval Bases for your Walkers, Vehicles, Flyers and more. Once again they mirror the Realm of Battle Board.
It would be interesting to see this on the likes of Space Marines of course and Imperial Guardsmen but imagine if you went the next step and did some Orky upgrades to these?
Sector Imperialis Large Base Detail Kit
Last but not least we have this Detail Kit which gives you a series of stick on pieces (a bit like a bitz box) for your larger based models.
You could use these on your Imperial Knights for example to show them stomping through ruins or a blasted Church (or other Holy Site).
What kind of sculpted bases and base inserts do you think you’d like to see them do next?
Do you think we could see Games Workshop expanding upon this?
