Review: These battle bases take a bit of getting used to. The "normal" 1 inch base is usually about 1 or 2 mm short on each side. These battle bases are *exactly* 1 inch. Once you get used to the size, though, they are quite nice. The heft of the piece just feels right, and you can give all of your models a standard look, which is good for some games, as well as making them look good on display. They are also big enough to actually make the base material look interesting - especially when using the Reaper Dark Heaven figures. I actually put all of my battle based figures on magnet strips, and since the sides of the base are vertical, it looks quite good. All in all, a good product, though the time required to fill in the gaps and make them look good is a bit cumbersome.
