Urban Basing Kit

There are some gaming things I buy which I later think, why on earth did I buy that! Then there are gaming things I buy which I now wish I had bought at least five times rather than just the once!

One of those things is the Urban Basing Kit which was released as part of Cities of Death. The box set contains 2 pots of slate, 2 pots of resin details and 1 pot of razorwire that can be used to decorate the bases of your miniatures or cityfight buildings. It was a limited edition and though since then Games Workshop have released a Warhammer 40k Basing Kit, personally I don’t think it is as good as the original urban basing kit.
I would have bought five, but they were very difficult to get hold of, and when I did find them, the shop only had one left…

I have used the kit with various models, but for a workbench feature on my website I have been photographing a 60mm and a 40mm base. Having added some resin and slate, I added modelling sand to change and vary the texture of the base.


The 60mm base I am intending to use with an Ork Killa Kan.
