I was asked to make these. Now I do. Doesn't look like anybody else does yet. :-)

That's the words for the word god, here's the pics for everyone else.





Available now at https://shop.winterdyne.co.uk/ and on my eBay store if you wanna pay more. :-)

silly question..

are these solid rings, or are they stretchy?

I have many 25mm based guys I want to upsize to 32, but they all have arms that are wide, or long weaponry..

How would these work with existingly based models?

2+2=5 for sufficiently large values of 2.

Like all the adapter rings I do, they're solid rings, the existing base just drops in from the top.

No need to remove existing base work.

You might want to add some filler around the gap and add a bit more basing material to blend it in, but with these ones the ring really doesn't contribute much to the top diameter -it's about 0.6mm or so 'thick' between the hole and the outer edge of the top. So they look pretty good I think without any additional work.

I've noticed some variation with GW 25mm bases - some will sit flush, some won't. You may want to rub the bottom of the base you're fitting on some coarse sandpaper to take between a quarter to a half millimeter off if you need it to set dead flush.

Note there are 25->28. I do a lot of different adapters. These are the 25->32 ones:

And because a pic is worth a thousand words - note these old plaguebearers overhang 25mm bases toe-claw-chippingly badly.

The adapters from Eccentric Miniatures come in two parts so you can fit them more easily.

Those do leave no gap at the top, but you have to glue them together and hide the seam, which can lose the 'roundness' of the base if you're not good with a sanding stick or file. I didn't like them at all - involved too much effort.

Much easier to just spooge filler into gap at the top and cover it with some sand (which you have to do with the EM ones anyway).

Winterdyne, I completely missed that the rings you are making are bevelled so that you can drop existing figs into them, I originally thought that they were sloped to match the current GW bases and thus leave no channel to fill

The hole for the base to drop in is totally vertical so leaves a small gap if you put a bevelled base in. This is unavoidable without either splitting the ring (EM fashion) or placing it from above (which doesn't work in many cases). The outside edge is bevelled similarly to the 'target' GW base size.
