To be honest, bases are all very similar in regards to damage that will penetrate to the core. Some cheaper bases (extruded) can actually do a bit better there (and all are definitely easier to fix). Post up some photos of the damage if you can.
I'll try to later. It's not the same base as my NS though. Feels totally different, only way I can describe it is "fibery", and it doesnt hold wax very well either. This is last years westmark, I do know they changed bases from my model to the model that was released this year...
Btw thanks for the feedback... Maybe I have just been hitting rocks under the snow and not realizing it... I dunno
Side note.... Is the boss red on the base and the elephant? Or orange? In the pic it looks orange but the catalogue looks red?
