Review: “Orion Tide – Hangar 07 Bases” by Top Down Terrain

I recently ordered a set of 29 “Orion Tide – Hangar 07 Bases” from Top Down Terrain. The base set is MDF and include 2x5mm, 5x40mm, and 22x25mm (along with four clear circular pieces are included for those different model poses). Total price came to 24.99$USD after tracked shipping to Canada and arrived in about two weeks.

Bought for use with Infinity, but I can see them aesthetically complimenting a number of different gaming systems.The etched detailing looks crisp and is begging for paint. The bases might be a little too clean for games requiring a more grimdark aesthetic, such as Necromunda Underhive.

One cool feature is that Top Down Terrain makes a matching “Orion Tide – Hangar 07 Display Stage w/ Tournament Drawer” if you ever want to make your army into a display diorama in between games. It seems a little pricey, but this luxury product sure does look fantastic if and when you have the extra cash to spend on making your army look its best.

Overall impression:

Quite impressed. Custom bases are never a necessary purchase to play; however, it’s always nice when you can make your army basing look great relatively affordably. It’s nice to have the added benefit of your army basing being diorama compatible down the road if you ever wish to invest more.
