I am sick to death of my Raptors falling over because they are floating unbalanced over their 25mm base. I've got some 30mm steel washers I'm thinking about glueing to the bottom of the Raptors 25mm slotta base.
I will still use the 25mm base for measuring range, coherency and movement as the washer is only there for balance. I will also notify my opponent at the beginning of the game what the washers are for and how I will be measuring.
Do you see any inherent problems with this?
other then some one being a super jerk about it I don't see any problems.
If you do things right people wont be sure if you have done anything at all.
I believe that (at least in the 4th Ed. rules, which I assume haven't changed) you are always allowed to expand the size of your bases.
On a side note, have you tried weighing them down with US Nickels? Those usually fit perfectly.
"If you can wait til I get home, then I swear we can make this last."
The rule did change with 5th; they removed the or larger part of the 4th ed basing rule.
I have already weighted the bases with cut down lead fishing sinkers. The problem really seems to be the base size with the odd center of gravity with the raptor models. I have a squad of marines with the old heavy metal jump packs who are on the ground and they have absolutely no problem with falling over.
I used nickles in the base, and then used my basing materials as a counterweight ontop of the base, only time they fall over now is if you set them up on uneven terrain.
Yes, I did deep-strike your sister...
Necrons : W-8 D-3 L-7 (Sleeping in their TombFoam, waiting for a new codex)
Chaos Forces (CSM/CD): W-42 D-19 L-28
Apocalypse Games : W-4 D-0 L-1 (4 Titans, Brass Scorp, 3 Baneblades, 2 Bombers, 3 Fighters, and a Partrage in a Pear Tree)
Id cut the model from the basing tab (that goes in to the slotta base). Id then use a normal base (non slotta) and pop a coin underneath it and one on top. Then using a fine drill drill a hole in the base, through the coins either side and into the ridiculous smokey feet of the raptors. Pin and enjoy.
Or buy the old raptors or the assualt marines.
Pennies work nicely.

I think maybe using the normal space marine models could look cool, they look a bit bulkier dont they?
Where is a boy in ireland gonna get some american money. :p
