I wanted a disc of tzeentch that i could use for both a sorc and an exalted hero without forking out for two disc packs, so cme up with this...
1 x 40mm square base
1 x 40k flying base (small base)
1 x flying stand
1 x 40mm round base
5 x nid rippers (optional)
modelling tool / craft knife
random model on 20mm square base
small pot of water (used for when using greenstuff to stop it sticking to you fingers)
First, flip the 40mm round base upside down and using clippers remove the round peg holes. You dont need to be particularly neat as the marks will be covered by the model anyway.
Completely fill the underside of the base with green stuff making sure its level with the edge of the base. Place the model on the 20mm base on top of the green stuff and lightly score around it with the modelling tool.
Using a sharp blade, cut around the score marks and remove the putty from the interior of the base. This can be a bit fiddly so keep checking that the model will fit in the hole OK. Once this is sorted, leave it to one side for a while so the putty can start to harden.
Insert the thin end of the flying base stand into the inverted flying base (flat edge of base should be upwards with the stand entering in the tapered side). Clip off the excess stand that pokes through and then remove the stand.
You now need to glue the flat side of the flying base to the flat side of the 40mm round base ensuring that its centred, again leave to one side while it dries.
Note: I was an idiot and glued everything together, I shouldnt have glued the flying base stand at either end to allow me to spray undercoat the model & base.
I decided that I wanted tentacles coming out of my base so I clipped the tails from some nid rippers that I had spare and then used green stuff to join them to the edge of the base, however sword blades, greenstuff tentacles and many other things would look fine as well.
I'm sure people know how to get fying stands into square bases so I wont bother going into that
Also, I didnt think to take photos during the process so I can just show the final model, front, back and with a sorc standing in it
I couldn't upload the pics for some reason so I've bunged them in an imageshack gallery, click Here to view them

Damn man that Sorcerer model takes me back......
Good idea on the Disc though!!
Good idea although you could just pin the models to the disk only glueing the pin to the model not the disk and then you would be able to slot whichever model you want into the disk.
Daemonic cheese-how? Well, you would need to start with daemonic milk, i guess...
thats not as much fun though
Can we have some pictures?

edit: Yeah BoraT () that sorc model is one of my faves I love the old chaos heroes, for my exalted i use the 3 armed snake body one (that I seem to be completely unable to find a picture of)

lol yeah, I love all the ye olde chaos models. Although looking back on it, it makes me feel old. Was it 87 that model came out???
Anyway, I like having models that no one else does, so all those random or ancient models that you can't get hold of anymore I try and get hold of.
I think i know the model you're talking of. But isn't that the one they've re-released? the man-snake guy with 2 swords and a scroll? Or am i thinking of the wrong model. The only other one is that hidious Drycha model, the old spawn
with some imaginitive googling and some lucky clicking i have finally found him !!!!!!!!
(yes I know multiple exclamation marks are a sign of a diseased mind but it's taken me ages to find this)
very first model on this picture
