This month we are having two sets of releases! Earlier in the month we released a Howard David Johnson line 54mm Justita, Roman Goddess of Justice and nine new 30mm bases.
For the second wave of releases this month we have:
Bodbh, the Goddess of War & Death. Bodbh is a 54mm figure based on the artwork “Bodbh” by Howard David Johnson.
We also have a 54mm Danu. Danu is also from our Howard David Johnson line.
Next is the fourth Swan Maiden in our 32mm Swan Maiden series. Brynhildr, Swan Maiden
Lastly, we have two Elven Adventurers.
Male Elf Adventurer
Female Elf Adventurer
This month we are releasing another figure for our Howard David Johnson artwork line, Justitia the Roman Goddess of Justice! Justitia is a 54mm metal figure sculpted by Sebastian Archer.
We have also added nine new 30mm base designs to the web store. The designs are: Abstract Parquet, Basketweave, Herringbone, Cobblestone, Small Brick, Sci-Fi Grid Flooring, Wooden/Plank Flooring, Fancy Parquet and Star Panel. Each base pack comes with five bases cast in black resin. Our bases have an improved rim that allows for an easier grip when picking the base up or moving it around the gaming board or off a tabletop. This allows for ease of use without risking damaging your model or your paint job, or having to pick the model up by the model itself, all while maintaining the same visual aesthetic of popular game system and display style bases.
These can all be found in our online store here:

This month we are releasing the first set of bases for our Morland Studios line. These hollow bases are a re-launch of the original hollow bases we produced as “Valloa’s Vale” back in the 1990’s. As they were our most popular base, it is fitting that they be the first to be improved and released!
Our bases are meant to be a low cost, high quality basing option for both gaming and display figures and are compatible with most gaming systems.
These hollows are wonderful for basing figures with integral bases without needing to remove the base. Simply glue the figure into the base, add a little bit of groundwork and your model is ready to go! They also work wonders for containing water effects in an easy, mess-free way that maintains a lovely presentation and without risking injury to yourself, a base or a model in trying to modify a plastic base to hold water effects. They are also cast in quality black resin for further options.
Our hollow bases have an improved rim that allows for an easier grip on the base and is easy to pick up off the table or move around a gaming board without risking damaging your model or your paint job, all while maintaining the same visual aesthetic of popular game system style bases.
For the first round of Hollow base releases we are releasing them in the following sizes:
19mm (x5 for 3.50)
23mm (x5 for 3.50)
30mm (x5 for 3.50)
34mm (x5 for 3.50)
40mm (x5 for 4.50)
42mm (x5 for 4.50)
50mm (x5 for 5.50)
55mm (x5 for 5.50)
They can be found here:
Thank you to each and every one of you that supported our project. We have been able to fulfill and ship all pledges very ahead of schedule.
Thank you for your continued support and happy modeling & painting!
Morland Studios has launched our second Kickstarter and we need your help!
Morland Studios wants to help you take your display and gaming bases to the next level with the patent pending Morland Studios Stackers basing system! Our patent-pending Stacker system is designed to provide a high quality, highly customizable, basing system at a low cost. Each part in our Stacker system can be used as a base itself or combined with other parts to form a better, more customized display or gaming base.
Uses include customizing the height of a permanent display plinth at low cost, creating a customized sized display plinth at shows to make your figure stand out based on the height needed at that table spot, a marker system for gaming where you can add/remove sections to indicate spells, damage, etc, using each individual part as a traditional base and much more.
Our goal is to relaunch the popular base designs that were produced by Valloa’s Vale in the 1990’s onwards (such as the very popular hollows that we were the first to produce) while adding new and exciting designs and further innovations to our bases, Stackers and plinths. In doing so, we have also made improvements to our designs. Such as an easier grip and increased ease of picking up bases, or Stacker plinth, which means less risk of damage to your paint jobs or miniatures.
EACH Stacker is made up of multiple bases that can also be purchased as just the bases.

Our first Kickstarter no only fulfilled on time, but we managed to deliver our quality products ahead of schedule. So please take a look at our Kickstarter and share with your friends.
