Yeah... a lot of people in Australia are having trouble with them, with really late orders, no communication, and damaged goods upon arrival and just terrible customer service.

I'm hesitant to put in a order with them if that's the kind of business they do

well, hopefully someone here will have some spares then.....

the other option is to make your own... HIPs sheet is really cheap when bought in bulk and is endlessly useful for conversions and scratchbuilding

score a load of 40x12mm rectangles, snap em off, drill 6mm holes in half, glue on top of the undrilled bases and hey presto.... while it's time consuming (although you can do them quite quickly if making huge batches) the advantage is that you can make them to taste, with a different number of holes or different placement.... could even make them 40x10mm so you get the optimum side size when you're piling into BTB with a war engine or similar

IIRC Apoc made his own plasticard bases with 4 holes to make his world eaters go further..... just depends on how much time you have for these things I guess :)

I have to say I find the lack of communication from steelcrown just frustrating however if you message them through facebook you seem to get a same day response and I think the account is the bosses there so it normally gets stuff done.

SCP does have it's detractors.
But I've ordered from them in the States with mixed results. Ordered just bases, 20 sprues, and had no issues.
Ordered minis and another 10 sprues, first shipment did not come. They reshipped the order and it arrived fine.
Communication was always returned, polite, and concise. Communication usually lagged about a day or two but was always returned.
So for bases which are pretty hard to damage I'd easily recommend.

Hello chaps,

I'm easy to contact on FB, Twitter or TacComms with any queries. Twitter or FB will usually lead to an instant reply as it'll ping my phone. I'm not aware of any outstanding emails. Sometimes it takes a while to get a response if it requires investigation. We'll make sure to ping a reply to let people know that there email has been read and to avoid any frustration :).

Tom
