got my first dwarf model, the throne of power (great model btw, but its oop ), and i noticed that there are huge gaps on the sides of the slot, and i come before you now to ask what you use to fill these gaps? and if there is an alternative to greenstuff because i dont want to use it

Give me a reason for why you do not want to use Greenstuff.
I would answer with greenstuff but you dont want that ;/
Green stuff is sometimes a pain to use, especially for a small job. I use squadron putty (green or white) or Testors putty. They come in a tube like toothpaste. You just squeeze it out and use it. Its not good for sculpting, but its much better for filling cracks, joints, and slotta-bases. No mixing necessary. They dry fast and can be sanded, painted, etc. You can find them in any model store.
I just use blue stuff to fill over those holes.

you could put cardbord there.(cardboard from the boxsets works best)
then when you paint and base the it, you shouldnt notice.

i use cardboard.
you could try sticky tape, should work and wont be noticable once you 'base' that base of yours.

When i base the model i fill those small holes with PVA glue, this then gets covered by sand, flock, stones or whatever the base of the model is going to be.
This works great since (usually) the PVA glue is too goopy to actually go into the hole and onto whatever surface you are modelling on and it will pretty much hold in place until it dries.
Hope it helps.

Any kind of fill ought to work. In spite of the difficulties, I still use green stuff because it is perminant, and doesn't shrink when it drys like standard modeling putty (like Squadron's orange/white stuff). I know that the flocking will hide quite a lot of imperfections, but *I* know. I want to see a perfectly smooth base after priming -- then I know I'm ready to paint.
I use so much superglue to hold them down in their slots I’m normally able to put some flock down over to cover it, otherwise if not cardboard I just paint over the metal and then fill in the gaps with whatever I can find to make it look effective such as sand, gravel or sugar (to make icy snow). If there's a large gap I might use some green stuff.
