Has anyone made their own skimmer bases?
My raiders base keeps breaking and I'm honestly going to smash the whole damn thing into a million pieces real soon if I can't fix it.
I was thinking of making a skimmer base out of two rough rider bases (those rectangular ones) and then just gluing some plastick sticks to keep up the tank. This way I could get more support for it than with the one very thin stick you get with the GW base.
Hey mate, I have a jetbike army and believe me I know what you mean!
Maybe this video tutorial might help you. I've not done it myself but it certainly seems like a good option
EDIT: Just re-read your post - you want options for different bases, not flying stands? Well, the vid. is not exactly what you asked for then, but hopefully it might still be useful!
Well bases, flying stands, just as long as it doesn't break!
I've had this problem a lot and eventually I ran out of flying bases to swap out. I got so sick of getting new bases that I just bored a hole in the bottom of my fire prisms wide enough to fit the shaft of the flying base. I cut the hole wide enough for the shaft to slide in half way. I have never had a flying base snap after using this technique. I know it's not quite what you wanted but it works for me and it's easy.

I plan to do this with my eventual jetbikes too, and they will definitley be able to stay up.
For the WS I used two 5x1,5mm magnets. Almost belive that the smaller, 3x1,5mm will work with jetbikes, but will probably use the larger just to be sure...
This makes for flying stands that are easy removable for transport and won't break.

For my skimmers I used the short rods and parts of the craft and terrain for support.
