Unfortunately no, shipping from Australia is crazy expensive.

Most Cities have maker spaces/laser crafting shops that will do stuff like this. Maybe look into one of them?

10 for $43.99 https://litko.net/products/402211177

This is a quote for custom builds. For some strange reason, 135m rounds aren't in their standard catalog ;)

If you only need one, G-Dubs has plastic 130mm rounds for $6.50 each:-\

Dropping a tag in here to watch this.

I'm gonna be painting miniatures for the Dragon Age campaign I'm running.

And there is a ton of useful information in here.

You guys are awesome.

General mini question... but there a good place to order custom minis from..?

Friends wanna try battletech using custom mech rules, and looking for place we could kinda work out our own or something.. couple programs that allow for making files for 3d printers, but seeing what other options possibly are.

What I need are two 135mm bases for the humungo Kingdom Death beasts, Gorm and Dragon King. They must be MDF to survive baking in the oven without warping, because I'm decorating the bases with Super Sculpey.

$50 is more than I'd expect to pay. MDF is usually a few bucks for a handful, you know?

Could always get a sheet of MDF, a pair of compasses and a jigsaw going :)

Have you considered coring out the center area of a normal 135, and building a round piece that'll fit there which is bakeable, then putting your sculpey on that? You could even use sculpey to make that round center, if you weight it while you're firing that 'base' piece. Then when you're done with all of your baking, you just epoxy it into the 135 'frame' and have a nice, neat base.

Sorry, didn't even register the MDF part.

You could try Sarissa, out of UK. They have 130m bases (if you can do without 5mm) for 2 each and they say they ship for 2.50 worldwide.
