Basicks Accessories - review

The Accessories I’m about to review are mostly the basic and terrain elements. All was made by Basicks and it was a first time I had seen their product up close. Let’s start with a little history. Basicks is a Polish company/producer specializing in creating resins accessories for tabletop wargames. Its history starts in 2003 with Mr. Grzegorz Tomaszewski and a little furniture studio. In 2012, lots of changes and new ideas Basicks as we know today was created.  

First thing I noticed after looking at Basicks resins is that they use a different resin type than Scibor, Max Mini or Titan Forge (it’s not F38). Since they create mostly battlefield terrain elements and battle bases it’s not a problem, it may even be seen as an advantage (F38 is harder, but more fragile). When you create big terrain elements it does not mater, as the finished product is still nice and hard to damage or break.

When we buy items from Basicks shop we get products that are practically ready to paint and play. You don’t have to clean or cut anything - that was already done. None of the cast I discussing here were damaged or distorted and I think that the designs can be really interesting for potential buyers, gamers and collectors alike.

Let’s start with the biggest elements, which are trenches. We all know that trenches are essential in warfare, so they are essential in tabletop wargames. That element is usually easy to make for most gamers, but if you want a professional trench, go for Basicks. I’ve bought/ordered four pieces, each different in size and shape. It was the Infantry Trench set and the biggest one - the Machine Gun Trench.

Infantry Trenches are all nicely done. There are two smaller ones, about eleven centimeters long and three centimeters high. The bigger one is thirteen centimeters long, four cm high and nine across. All are made with sandbags, barrels, some wood and soil. In one or two places the steel pipers or beams are visible, which makes the trenches look realistic, as though they were made from what was available on the battlefield.  The Machine Gun Trench is similar in shape, but it looks more sturdy and has a complete look to it. There is more soil (or gravel) and wooden boards on the ground; there is even a shovel and a water canister.

Two other kinds of terrain accessories I had received to write about are Fantasy Terrain Window B and a set of five Treasure Boxes.  The Window set is an especially cool addition, it looks like stained church windows and will fit ideally for Warhammer Fantasy Battle or Warhammer 40.000 wargames. The windows are eight centimeters high and four and a half in width. Moreover, you can easily make stain glass with it, just glue some transparent plastic to the back of window frame and paint it accordingly.

The Treasure boxes (or if you prefer treasure chests) are all similar in size ( about 3x1/1,5 centimeters) and design, but different when it comes to details. One of them is a typical, simple wooden chest with a classic lock, anotherone is more Greek-like in design and Celtic in ornamentations, and the last three are most fantasy/medieval-like with crest emblems and higher rounded top.

Last but not least, there are battle bases. I received six bases, two round ones (60mm) and four square ones(two 48mmx48mm and two  40x40mm). Their designs are called the Ancient Base and the Jungle Base. All items look nice and would make for a great addition to any collection. Unfortunately, since the price is quite high, not everyone can afford to buy a unique sculptured base for every model in the army.  Still, I think that for heroes and more unique miniatures you can pay and don’t had regrets.


The Ancient bases ale mainly decorated with stone road tiles, broken column fragments, and pieces of statues. On top of that there is nature, leaves, grass and roots are slowly covering those ancient ruins. The overall impression is really positive, and you can feel certain sadness and stillness looking at those bases. I don’t know how I will feel having an army in a battle with those bases, but to a collector’s eye I’m sure they are more than satisfactory. 

Two last bases are jungle-themed. The Round and square bases are almost identical, similar in design and details, the only difference being their shape. Plants are everywhere: leaves, grass, roots, stump, flowers and even some animal life (little frogs). Under  plants there are stone ‘Mayan’-like ruins and reliefs visible. 

To sum up, I’m quite happy with those accessories and I can’t wait to paint them and use them for my miniatures and dioramas.

I was wondering if you ever considered changing the layout of your site?
Its very well written; I love what youve got to say. But maybe you could a little more in the way of content so people could connect with it
better. Youve got an awful lot of text for only having one or 2 pictures.
Maybe you could space it out better?
