Hey there folks. My Sea Guard battalion is coming along nicely. Though admittedly I haven't even begun painting actual Sea Guard units :lol:. So while adding a third bolt thrower I got the idea of making some kind of base for my entire battery. I want to be able to use it during gaming sessions, so it has to be something not too extravagant. Ultimately it has to be useful and not only for show.

I haven't completely figured out how I'm going to do it yet. Though some basic things are already floating in my head:
- Each individual bolt thrower will be put on a 6 cm round base (as per 9th age specifics)
- These round bases will be flocked with plain grass. Keeping it similar to all other units in the battalion.
- For the battery base I want to feature some kind of artillery commander, for which I'm going to use an old school Sea Elf gun commander.
- I want to put some assorted, but fitting, bits on the base. At the very least I want to put some kind of banner on it, preferably just a pole so that I can create and print my own banner.

For the actual battery base I have to do some thinking. How large will it be? How modular will it be? What bits am I going to use? Will I magnetize it?

So I'm reaching out to any of you for inspiration. Do any of you have a finished artillery battery base or any tips?

I’m afraid not Bie, the whole concept sounds awesome though! Will you do the individual machines on their bases first or is it going to be more involved than that?

I do square bases, but if you scroll though my stuff you'll see what I did with my Sea Elf bolt thrower along with a couple goblin war machines.
