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.

This October, Morland Studios marks our fourth anniversary! To celebrate, we are releasing our fourth anniversary figure Nemesis, Greek Goddess of Justice!
Nemesis was sculpted by the super talented Kevin Contos and is a 32mm figure. She also comes with a metal version of our new upcoming base designs. Coming soon to a Kickstarter near you.
You can check out an awesome blind box opening video of Nemesis from the folks at Through Gamer Goggles here:
We have also released the coins and wings that come with Nemesis as separate bits. The coins are perfect to add to any base that needs a pile of treasure and the wings are very well suited to converting figures.
The assembly and paint guides for the latest Order of the Stick miniatures are now posted under the “Order of the Stick Assembly & Paint Guide” pages on the left of the main Morland Studios page. Or you can find them by clicking the links below.

We are back from Gen Con and have spent the week working through all the orders placed while we were at Gen Con. We are all caught up and all orders will now be shipping as normal!
Thank you to everyone who stopped by our booth at Gen Con. As always, it’s great to meet and talk to you all.
There were several Cosplayer’s at Gen Con dressed up as Order of the Stick characters. We love seeing Cosplay and we love supporting it. So pictured below is the very cute Monster in the Darkness Cosplay. Because she stopped by our booth and let us get a picture, she scored herself a free MiTD and Demon Roaches miniature. Yay!
