The flatter 2017 Subbuteo bases

Hi all,

I see that Subbuteo have recently changed the shape of their new bases - making them even flatter, and looking a lot more (profile-wise) like the expensive 'sports' brands like Extreme Works, Profibase, Tchaaa etc. Just curious as to how they compare - has anyone tried them...?

It's the figures that need to be flat.

Not the bases, ffs. :angry: :angry: :angry:

Clever and well stated.

When I first joined this forum I became a little confused (not difficult, I know) between the two interpretations of 'flats'.

The last woman burned for witchcraft was Mary Pannal - just a few miles north of Cas Vegas.

That was a couple of months ago now.
