Default Poker Chip Bases

Ok I found something interesting, Regular poker chips are the exact same size as 40mm round GW bases. So I went to the toy aisle of my local liquidator store and picked up a box of 100 heavy weight poker chips for $5 USD. So essentially I now have a huge supply of 40mm bases for my models. What do you think?

box of chips

beofore and after sand and glue


comparison with 40mm terminator base


seems pretty economical and easy once painted up should look cool and the extra weight of the chip is nice too.

I like it. Cool idea, and I have that exact same box around here somewhere (Which is odd, being that I live in Aus!).

You know what, these would be really great as bases for Objective Markers.

Well speaking of this, most of my friends dont yet have any/many models and so we either sub for my friends LOTR models or use peices of paper or poker chips... They can be used for stratagem markers aswell.

Also if you are making things like barrel clumbs or other terrian they are great bases as the terrian wont fall over if you have the fan on your players (a common happening in Aus because we get some REALY hot days here)

Yeah, I might do that now for the tons of forest bases I need to make...went to the dollar store and spent $5 on fake plants, disassembelled the bunches and now have a ton of greenery for forests, but not enough bases!!! Maybe another trip to the dollar store, as I don't need 100 chips, I know they sell sets of like 20 or 30 for a buck.

I found that cutting the pink insolating form work good to (even better if you have a dull knife or razor) looks really good.
