Basicks Battlefield Resin Terrain Review



basicks battlefield resin terrainWelcome to today’s review in which we are looking at a wide selection of resin battlefield terrain and accessory pieces including trenches, barrels and crates, gothic windows and even fantastically detailed treasure chests! The pieces in this review are samples kindly sent over to us by Basicks, a polish company specialising in highly detailed bases and terrain, plus some great looking 28mm and 70mm miniatures, and conversion parts.

Here you can see the whole pile of goodies that Basicks kindly sent over to us. There’s a real mix of 28mm scale terrain and accessories here, including things suitable for sci-fi themed games like Warhammer 40k, and fantasy themed games including RPGs like D&D. Everything here is from the “Battlefield Resin Terrain” section of Basicks site.

The first thing we picked out of the pile was this large bag of sandbag-lined trench pieces.

On closer inspection, we seem to have 3 infantry trench pieces and machine gun trench piece. The first 2 pictures show the 3 infantry trench pieces which are available for 24.60 Euros ($31.17) for the set. The 3rd picture shows the machine gun trench which is priced at 14.76 Euros ($18.70). All are cast in a dark grey resin, and none of the ones we received needed any cleaning up or had any defects.

Here you can see some of our 28mm Warhammer 40k Space Marines from Games Workshop testing out the trenches for scale. These are a great height to provide cover for your 28mm miniatures while still allowing them to fire over the top. The main difference with between the infantry trench pieces and the machine gun trench piece is that the piece designed for the machine gun or other heavy weapon is slightly larger and comes with a floor to provide a stable firing platform.

One thing we really like about these is the amount of details and textures that make them interesting to look at, we’re sure they’ll look great once painted up. We find its always useful to have a selection of smaller terrain pieces like this available as they offer lots of flexibility when setting up a battlefield and creating different layouts. We’ll definitely be able to make use of these as barricades and fortified positions in our games of 40k and similar wargames.

The next thing we grabbed from the pile were a collection of Atomic Fuel Barrels and Ammo Crates. Just as with the trench pieces, these are very well cast with no mold lines or cleaning up needed.

These Atomic Fuel Barrels come as a set of 5 for 7.38 Euros ($9.35) and are nicely detailed, especially on the lids and valves.

Ammo is something you don’t want to be short of on the battlefield, so we’re sure these Ammo Crates will come in handy. They are available as a set of 6 for 8 Euros ($10.13) and have a nicely detailed wood grain effect.

Here you can see a 28mm Warhammer 40k Space Marine claiming all the ammo and fuel in the name of the Emperor! These crates and barrels are a good size for use in 28mm wargames and have several uses, including being used as terrain to hide behind, or as objectives to fight over.

We then decided to check out this piece, a Fantasy Terrain Window. Now although it’s labeled as a fantasy themed item, we also felt this gothic style would fit well on buildings themed for use in Warhammer 40k. This is Fantasy Terrain Window B, and is priced at 4.92 Euros ($6.23) on the Basicks site.

This piece has very sharp details, and would be a great way to add detail to terrain pieces you are building or converting. Basicks also produce other similar items, like doors, hatches, and windows with different designs. We’ve also included a picture with a 28mm scale Space Marine to give you an idea of the size of this window.

These Treasure Boxes were the next things picked out of the pile, great for use as objectives in fantasy wargames and RPGs. This pack of 5 Treasure Boxes is priced at 7.38 Euros ($9.35).

The Treasure Boxes are covered in detail and cast in the same high quality resin as the rest of the pieces in this review. Each one is of a different design, and we’re looking forward to including them in our games of Dungeons & Dragons and other RPGs.

Here is a photo to give you an idea of the size of these Treasure Boxes, they are shown with a fantasy themed heroic warrior miniature from Reaper Miniatures which is around 28-30mm scale.

The last pieces in the pile of goodies were the parts to make up some Open Treasure Boxes. There are enough parts here for 5 Open Treasure Boxes and 2 coin pouches, the complete set costs 9.84 Euros ($12.47).

After removing the excess resin on the lids of each Treasure Box, we assembled them in an open position so that the treasure can be seen.

The detail on the contents of these Open Treasure Boxes is absolutely fantastic, and we also liked the inclusion of the coin pouches. We’ll definitely find use for these in our fantasy themed gaming.

Overall we found the samples Basicks sent us from their “Battlefield Resin Terrain” range to be very well cast and highly detailed. The prices are not particularly cheap, but you do get some very finely detailed pieces, and as previously mentioned there was little to no cleaning up needed on these kits and accessories. Basicks also produce another range of ‘Battlefield Hardfoam Terrain’ which we previously reviewed here: Battlefield Hardfoam Terrain.
